Weekend Down Time

Because we are so busy during the week, it would make sense that we would like to just stay home on the weekends but, it has become healthier for all of us to get out of the house and be busy at least one of the weekend days.  It comes to no surprise to those that know us that we are a Disney family, Disnerds really.  With our annual passes and living so close to the parks, we regularly go but on the weekends that we stay home, it feels nice to get out of the pjs and enjoy time at the park or at a kids play area.  Part of working through my working mommy guilt is to feel like the time I do have with my kids is precious and not wasted.  I want my kids to know that even if I'm working, when I am home with them, I am hands on and enjoy being with them.  And I couldn't help but sneak in the bottom photos of Olivia!  I mean look at those thighs!  I'm obsessed!

The One With the Tent


It's simply that time, folks.  The time where everything I wear will unapologetically make me look like a tent.  I'm actually happy to be in real clothes though after spending a little under a week in bed rest.  My Braxton Hicks contractions kicked it up a notch and bed rest was the medicine.  I am an on the go person, wakes up at 5 and is on the go until I lay my head down on my pillow, so bed rest wasn't as luxurious as it may sound.  Baby Girl is doing great though which is what's important.  So I'll take the tent look over last week and hope it's a trend that catches on!  Or maybe not...

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!

Maternity Work Wear



As much as I'd like to wear leggings and a baggy t-shirt all day every day, this pesky thing called going to work at an office gets in my way.  I was so sick during the first couple of months with this babe that I literally just wanted to stay in bed all day in my comfy clothes.  Now that I'm feeling more like myself, it does make a big difference to put some makeup and a dress on in the mornings.  Plus, if I get told one more time that I don't look well (which has happened one too many times lately) I might just go buck-wild.

{Magical} Weekend Photo Diary


It was another magical weekend at Disney World as we spent Saturday back at the Magic Kingdom.  We are very lucky to live not too far from the parks and we enjoy every visit to see our friends Mickey, Donald, and Goofy.  We decided that since Lucas is tall enough to ride the kiddie Goofy roller coaster that he would go on the ride with his daddy.  Sadly, I missed out on his first roller coaster ride since I'm pregnant but I got to take video from below.  As tame as the ride may be since it's meant for children, Lucas was lukewarm about the ride.  The rest of the day, he would remind us that the "choo choo train" made him sad.  He breaks my heart and melts it all at the same time.  Other than that, he had a great time meeting the characters and going on the truly kiddie rides.  What made this trip really exciting is that Lucas had been asking us to take him back to Disney and whenever he'd get in the car with both me and my husband, he'd assume we were going to Disney.  I love that he realizes where he is and tells us that he's having a good time.


Lucas even helped pick up some toys for his baby sister and insisted on an "Anna" doll versus Elsa.


On Sunday, I tried my hand at a little DIY project as the nursery is still a work in progress.  In fact, the room is basically a storage/guest/computer room at the moment...


Before having children, I was that super obnoxious and judgmental person who would see a screaming child in public and think, I would never let my child behave that way.  Well, I'm getting back and then some for all the times I judged when I should have minded my own business.  Yep, I was this mom at Target...letting my child lay down under the cart in order to prevent the 1,450,649,675 meltdown of the day...

Getting the Nursery Ready

Slowly but surely baby girl's nursery will be coming together.  As I said in the last post, at this point in my pregnancy with Lucas, his nursery was basically complete.  I must have been insane.  With Baby #2, I will be using Lucas' crib and just a few pieces of furniture.  I'm not going to really go with a theme for her room but just maybe try to keep a neutral and sweet color scheme.  I stopped by Hobby Lobby, Homegoods, and placed a Target order recently and here are the things I picked up:


I love pink and mint together so I couldn't resist those crib sheets.  And anyone who knows me knows I'm obsessed with collecting ginger jars so the bunny above from Hobby Lobby was a must.  The basket was a Homegoods find.

I love love these prints from Hobby Lobby!  Hobby Lobby was also having a 50% their art and framing this weekend so these were super cheap.  The Paris print is from Etsy.  I'm thinking I may do a gallery wall above her dresser and include the unicorn pictured below.


I was ready and set to buy the faux fur stool from World Market that's around $78.  As I was browsing Hobby Lobby, I spotted the stool above that is almost an exact of the World Market stool except I bought mine for a little over $25 since I used a 40% off promo!  Winning!


So Target completely nailed it with the new Pillowfort collection!  There were so many things I loved and still would like to get.  For Baby Girl, I bought the Unicorn head pictured above.  I'm thinking it will be part of the gallery wall to go above her dresser that I have yet to find.  For my Mr. Lucas, I bought the pillowcase and fox pillow below to go in his big boy bed.  I think he'll get a kick out of the fox pillow!

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?

Grayer Days


What is this?!  An outfit post with real photos?  Why yes, my friends, I have crawled out of my hole and made half an effort to look human at work.  AND the bump photos are back, folks!  As someone recently told me, this pregnancy has kicked my butt.  You know those women that are only sick during their first trimester?  Yeah, I'm not one of those people.  However, I'm done with the pity party and am trying to feel better about myself.  What better way to make yourself feel better than throwing on a comfy/cute outfit, brushing your hair, and putting some makeup?  Hey, it works for me and I'll take it!

Rewearing Clothes Again


I wear this cardigan blazer thingy probably more than I should.  I LURVE it.  In fact, I re-wear a ton of stuff which is probably why I can't take outfit photos everyday because you would be life, ummm didn't you wear that last week?  After my son was born, a switch went off in me that said, only buy things that you love.  The reason why this switch happened after my son was born was because I felt very guilty spending any money on myself.  I'm not sure why, maybe because I felt every dollar I had should be spent on him and his savings, but I felt guilty every spending money on myself.  I work full time so the necessity to wear office clothes every day was there so I decided to only buy things that I love.  And I think I've kept this up.  My closet isn't us busting at the seams as it used to be but I love everything more than when I was buying all of the things.  Food for thought :-)

Random Recent Purchases


I've been MIA this week because work has been absolutely crazy, crazy good, but crazy busy.  In fact, I haven't really been dressing up this week since I'm trying to be a drafting machine and needing to come in early.  So I've been trying to kill two birds with one stone by taking short lunch breaks and getting in grocery shopping, etc, done during my breaks.  Of course, I snuck in some fun purchases to break up the monotony.  Below is some random stuff I picked up this week:


I'm a humongous germaphobe and even receive huge container of antibacterial tubs for my birthday from co-workers.  I went to pick up some antibacterial from Bath and Body Works and saw these super cute antibacterial holders shown above and below!  They are so cute and I'm now obsessed with holders.  My favorite scent is Warm Vanilla Sugar which can be hard to find.  Of course I love the one that is hard for me to find.  I took pictures of all the holders on my bags and I snuck in a picture of a holder I got at Disney that Lucas picked out.  I wanted one that matched my Disney bag which happened to be the Little Mermaid but Lucas vetoed for Donald.  #boymom


I went in to Target for Drano but, as always, I left with much more.  Target is killing it in the home department!  I love the plaid cooking spoon and the copper measuring spoons!  How adorable is the binder and blanket too.  Target also had some Halloween washi tapes out which I just had to get for my planner obsession.  Oh, and I forgot to buy Drano.


I love the Pioneer Woman so when I saw pictures of her new collection at Walmart I knew I had to get my hands on it.  I just love love the measuring bowls and cup!  They're almost too pretty to use haha!  The pattern looks just like some of my Anthopologie stuff.  My Walmart didn't have the whole collection out so hopefully I'll be able to get the mugs soon.

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!

The Perfect Summery Dress


This Anthropologie dress is one my husband sweetly bought me for Mother's Day after I kept adding it then removing it then adding it to my shopping cart over and over again.  I get like this lately because I only want to buy things I love.  Gifts are a different story though, duh.  And I really love the dress now.  I think it's the perfect summery dress and, as you can tell in the picture above, is very flowy.  I don't love that I'm hunching over in these pictures but I love a good empire waist dress.  Anthropologie for the win!

Swingy Tops


I certainly never dress for the weather because I literally melted in this outfit.  Melted.  But it's okay because as soon as I sat at my desk, I froze.  Froze as in freezing.  I know I talk about the weather a lot but it literally occupies a lot of time in my head.  It's so flipping hot so swingy sleeveless tops are now my jam.  I want a million of them and then more.  I spotted some more sleeveless tops at Target over the weekend so I may buy every single color and convince myself that tank tops are office appropriate because I'm not totally convinced yet.  Riveting stuff here.  It's the heat.  The heat is making me cray...and boring.

Outfits That Didn't Make It


Here's how this conversation went:

Me: [to husband] Can you take my picture?
Him: You want it for your blog?
Me: Yes.  Why do I look like crap?  Because I'm real.  This is how I really dress. [clearly, I'm not dramatic.]
Him: I mean okay.

Since I assumed my photographer was not inspired, I took pics with my iphone instead.  Note to self, must get new mirror and keep little toddler boy hands off of it.  

The picture below shows one of my birthday gifts from my husband!  It's a Tory Burch bag that doubles as a diaper bag since it's nylon fabric.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  Although I also love my Marc by Marc Jacobs diaper bag, since my baby boy is now a toddler, I don't have much of a need to always have all of the things.  However, I still carry with me diapers, wipes, snacks, drinks, and toys so I wanted something that was nice enough to wear on its own and also carry my toddler necessities.  Tis love!

Comfortable Clothes


I know I have talked about this before, but there are lots of days that I want to dress down as much as I can without looking drabby and still professional.  This is what I come up with.  I look at my calendar before I pick out what I'm going to wear and make sure I dress for occasion.  For example, I wouldn't necessarily wear something like this if I have meetings or have to be in court, but if I know I have hours upon hours of reading, writing, and researching, this is probably my go to.  And to be honest, it's my favorite kind of outfit...next to pajamas.
