That Time I Matched My Kids

Yep, that's right.  I bought us all matching outfits.  No shame in my game.  I even bought my husband a matching shirt but he wouldn't wear it.  Rude.  So he looked like the odd man out, not me of course.  The lady matching her kids, nope, I didn't look weird AT ALL.  In fact, I plan on matching my kids in the future.  Yep.  In all seriousness, I couldn't wait for this day to come.  When I was little, my mom made us all match and I hated it.  Now, I plan on trying to get away with matching as much as I can.  Since I know my husband doesn't read here often, I'm going to make sure he is in the car and not looking when I put the kids in the car so that when we get to our destination, POOF, we're ALL matching and he won't have an opportunity to change.  I'm a genius.

The Final Countdown

I'm in the last few days of this pregnancy and can't believe how fast time flew by.  Lucas celebrated his third birthday yesterday and I'm in shock that I have a three year old.  I decided to start my maternity leave before giving birth this time so that I can soak up some time with my only baby and nest some more.  It's weird not having to go into the office and work since I worked all though my last maternity leave and worked right up until the day I was induced.  I definitely could use this little bit of time off though.

So I decided to turn my Louis Vuitton Baggy Denim GM bag into a crossbody bag.  I prefer crossbody bags anyhow but I intend to use this bag as an everyday/diaper bag.  I know I sound like an a$$hole wanting to use a Louis Vuitton bag as a diaper bag but this time around, I will not pack 50 million things with me to just go to Target with the baby.  Seriously, with Lucas, I packed this diaper bag so much I looked ridiculous.  No one needs 6 onesies, 20 diapers, 5 bottles, toys, etc. just to run one errand...but that and more is what I packed with Lucas.  Once I learned to only carry the necessities, I was able to start using my pre-baby handbags.  That is my intention with this bag for it to carry the necessities and necessities only.  I'm planning on doing a post on what I carry in my bag since I did purchase organizational items to keep me in check - necessities only!

When Time Flies

I know I have been saying this a lot but holy moly is time not only flying but busy does not even begin to describe what I am.  Last week was a trial week and if I wasn't working on the case at night, I was in bed by 8:30 p.m. because I was exhausted and had to be up early.  Then July somehow rolled around...how did that happen?!  How is it already baby girl's birth month?!?!?!?!?!?!  During the long weekend, we finally finished baby girl's nursery but I still have a list of things that I hope to get done before she's born.  This pregnancy just flew by!

Summa Summa Summatime


Wow!  How is it already June?!  Lucas finished his first year in school and I can't believe it.  I'm so sad that he'll have a new teacher soon since we loved his first teacher so much!  Along with the start of summer, I'm in the homestretch of this pregnancy that already feels like the fastest pregnancy ever.  June is going to be a crazy busy work month, my birthday month (no, I don't celebrate a birthday month), and time to finish up baby girl's room.  Things are going to get really interesting around here!

Hey, Baby!


No big deal.  Just looks like I swallowed a watermelon but no big deal, nothing weird looking here.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, I feel so much bigger carrying baby girl.  Getting dressed for work is getting more and more interesting but I just have to chuckle since it looks like I'm smuggling a basketball into the office!

Weekend Party

These aren't the best photos but they were quickly snapped using my Iphone before I headed out to a good friend's baby shower a couple weekends ago.  She and I have been friends since we were 6 years old and now we both have the exact due date!  I was so excited to celebrate her baby shower.  I usually do not dress up on the weekends so it was nice to get out of my leisure pants and attempt to look presentable.

Life Lately: Little Sister's Nashville Wedding

Long time no see!  It's been quite a few weeks and I'll try to catch up as I start blogging regularly again.  Throughout the past couple weeks, I've been on and off bed rest due to ongoing Braxton Hicks contractions.  I'm still working full-time, so I've been balancing taking care of my body, working, Lucas, life, etc. so unfortunately, blogging went to the bottom of the totem pole.  We also just got back from Nashville for my sister's wedding which are the photos I'm sharing below.

My sister got married at the Nashville Symphony which was an absolutely beautiful venue!  I was maid of honor and little Lucas was a ring bearer.  His bow tie, suspenders, and Chucks outfit was too too cute!  Shockingly, not only did Lucas walk down the aisle but he was the perfect angel throughout the ceremony and sat quietly on my sister, Ana's lap.  I didn't want to jinx it so I tried not to make eye contact with him!

We had such a great time spending time with family and celebrating Melisa and Jeremy.  It was also special to spend Mother's Day in Nashville with all of my family.

Lucas sitting quietly as the girls got their hair and makeup done.  Can you tell that I emphasize when he's quiet?  He's definitely a firecracker!

I mean...I mean...


 Lucas was in heaven with his Aunties!

Mom, sisters, and I

FYI Finding a maid of honor dress to wear at 7 months pregnant was no easy task but I went with this similar J.Crew dress and had it altered like no other.

The happy married couple.


This was such a sweet gift from my sister!  She and I love this Burberry perfume and she had it engraved which makes it extra special :-)

Transitioning Non-Maternity Clothes


It helps that this top that I bought last year at Nordstrom was already pretty big to begin with because it has been great in adding to what I can wear during this pregnancy.  I haven't bought many maternity items this time around but believe you me, my belly is huge this time around.  I'm finding that tunics have been great to wear and purchase recently because they are pieces that I can also wear post-pregnancy.  Maternity bottoms had to be purchased because, at least for me, there was no way around that.  I don't mind those purchases though since I work 5 loooong days a week and constantly reuse (of course wash!) them throughout the week.  Dresses are also a great way to wear during pregnancy that don't necessarily have to be maternity.  I am by no means against maternity clothes but it's also important for me to be cost efficient and find pieces that I can also wear after birth.  I do have to say though that maternity fashion has come a long way and there's so many cute options now!

PS: Here's this exact outfit worn last year and not pregnant: Non- Maternity Version

The White Pants


This here is a first for me...white pants.  White pants while pregnant no less.  I can't lie, throughout the entire day, I would examine my pants to see if I smeared ink...or cheetos...but, thankfully, these survived an entire day at the office.  And I have to say, I'm a fan!  I practically live in blank or dark gray work pants so this was a nice departure.  Maybe I'll even brave some white jeans #goals

The Perfect White Top


I bought this top before I was pregnant and so happy that it is one that will grow with me.  My tummy has popped A LOT A LOT A LOT more than when I was pregnant with Lucas at this point in the pregnancy.  I feel and look like I'm much further along than I am.  I'm happy that I can still wear the clothes that I love while having a big preggo belly.  I know these days are numbered...

Struggling



For most of this pregnancy, I haven't worn any maternity tops and have been living in tunics.  Clearly, this poor chambray top is struggling to stay buttoned!  Luckily, no buttons were harmed in the making of this post.

Weekend Photo Diary

We had a busy weekend that started out with our first Easter Egg hunt of the year.  Lucas is a pro and takes it VERY seriously.  Our friends throw a great Easter Egg hunt every year and it's always a fun time.  Check out the determination below!


On Sunday, we went to Disney's Animal Kingdom and my mom joined us as well.  Lucas is really into Lion King/Guard, Tarzan, and Finding Nemo so we knew he would love this park as well.  He so loved the Festival of the Lion King show and walking the trails to spy on some gorillas and zebras.  I absolutely love experiencing Disney through him.



Yeah, I just really don't enjoy shopping for my little girl...not one bit...Ok, I'm obsessed.  Even my mom told me to slow my roll.  It's just so hard when everything is too darn cute.  This sleeper below has to be one of my favorites because it's a "Central Park" graphic sleeper.  Central Park holds a special place in my heart as it's where my husband proposed to me.


These two cuties are from Carter's and I just could not pass up jelly sandals!

And holy cow does Target's Oh Joy and Pillowfort collections have me like whoa!

Weekend Photo Diary

What was suppose to be another Disney weekend ended up being an errands weekend since we are all still trying to get over a bad cold but thankfully we were productive!  If we aren't going to Disney or have something going on, we usually stay low and at home on the weekends since our week is usually busy.  Below is some stuff we got around to doing:

1. Baby Girl Stuff


My timehop showed me that on this day three years ago, I had Lucas' nursery completely decorated and about a billion outfits in his closet.  Baby #2, though...nothing accomplished :-(  We plan on using our guest room as baby girl's room since I refuse to give up our playroom.  The playroom is a dream come true!  During Lucas' nap on Saturday, I shopped my little heart out buying cute baby girl clothes and picking up things on her soon to be nursery.  I posted the photo above on my instagram and personal facebook page and too many people were telling me that they thought they were having a girl/boy and the baby ended up being the other.  Now, I'm so scared!  I'm thinking I should hold off maybe buying so much but baby girl stuff is so cute!

We also spent Sunday looking for furniture and organizing the garage in order to move everything from the guest room out.  I just can't believe I had Lucas' nursery completely decorated at this same point of my pregnancy with #2!  

2.  The Almost Threenager

My not-so-little Lucas is two and a half with 100x the attitude.  Holy moly.  He recently started pointing and saying NOW whenever he wants something and he fully knows what "now" means.  I sometimes can't believe how much he knows since he is just 2 years.  I love him but man oh man does he give us a run for our money.


3.  Jogging Preggo Style


Because I was so out of shape during my last pregnancy, I'm trying to be more active with this one so that my recovery maybe won't be so bad.  I've continued jogging on the weekends and my workout clothes are definitely in need to be maternity now.  Any recommendations for maternity work out clothes?

She Was A Showgirl


I don't know what happened but somewhere along the line, I became afraid of wearing color to work.  Looking back in my archives, I was not shy before even though some of those old posts have gots to go.  I've always been a lover of wearing black everything but definitely need to change it up.  I think the color black as my safety and feel like if I wear too much color that it's "showy" but I really love this skirt and how bright it is!  I'm still loving these blue sunnies too and want to maybe get the pink version!

That Time I Didn't Have My Sh*t Together


So I went to work in this get up...a sweater AND necklace put on backwards.  Did anyone tell me?  Nope.  I realized it when I was going through these photos that night.  It was a long 9+ workday too.  Thanks everyone.

Most days I feel like I'm just trying to function.  Just trying to keep all the balls I'm juggling in the air.  From far away, it may seem like someone has their sh*t together, and I begin to doubt if I'm just doing it all wrong.  But up close, it's a backwards sweater and necklace, so maybe we aren't all perfect and it's going to be ok.  How's that for deep on this lovely Monday ;-)

Weekend Photo Diary: 4th of July


We had such a great three day weekend that I am getting sad it's over as I type this post.  My husband and I had Friday off so I got a haircut while Lucas napped and afterwards we went for a Target run, of course.  On Friday night, we went with my parents to a fireworks show that the town I live in does every year.  This is the first year we have gone with Lucas and I was anxious to see how he would react to the noise.  As you can tell in the picture below, he loved it!  He kept looking up and saying WOW!  Now, I want to take him back to Disneyworld to see the fireworks show probably in a couple weeks.  We even gave him a sparkler for a hot second, literally, because, of course, he wanted to touch the fire.  Our favorite part of the show is when the orchestra starts playing the official songs for our armed forces and asks for those who have served to stand while their song played.  My dad always stands with pride when the Army song plays as he proudly served the army for ten years.  Lucas strangely stood when the Navy song played and when it was over, he sat back down.  Maybe he's foreshadowing the future.  Sunday was a relaxed day and we hit the pool early then did a little shopping afterwards.  I'm so sad the weekend is over but I definitely feel rested for the work week.  Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!
