Baby Girl's Name Reveal

Sunday, November 11, 2018

And just like that 38 weeks have come and gone.  This pregnancy was so different from the others in so many ways. Particularly in my mind set.  I wasn't in a hurry, I didn't feel anxious.  I took my time to enjoy the little things.  Now, don't get me wrong. It was not all rainbows and sunshine but, there is just something different knowing it's the last one.  The last time to feel the miraculous little kicks, the last time to see a sonogram or hear that sweet heartbeat for the first time.  I was so excited to have a girl and couldn't wait to start on her nursery.  Surprisingly, we were not in any hurry to land on a name.  Maybe, 

Upping My Nutrition with a Better Omega-3

Saturday, November 10, 2018

I've always tried to lead a health lifestyle.  I'm not a smoker, I like to be active and work out, junk food is kept to a minimum and my worst vice is a tie between my love for cereal and a fun girls night out every now and then.  During pregnancy and afterwards, especially while nursing, I am even more contentious about what I put in my body and staying as healthy and fit as possible because it's not just about me.  That includes a better omega-3 supplement from iWi.

Maternity Shoot With My Boys

Wednesday, November 7, 2018

One of the biggest things I've been trying to do before baby comes is spend some quality time with the boys.  I know we have a little groove going for life right not and that is all about to change, big time.  I wasn't sure about doing a maternity shoot as I had never done one with either of my prior pregnancies but when Samatha at Little Lion Photography suggested incorporating the boys I actually thought of it as a precious time to capture what life as just a boy mom has been.  To pause time for just an instance and remember my sweet boys; wild, precocious, tender and loving.  With all that's about to happen I really do want to soak up these moments. 

How to Stay Warm as Temps Drop

Monday, October 29, 2018

Now that it's finally starting to cool down and act like Fall (at least in the morning temps), I'm pulling out all the cozy layers and loving every second. This week actually has 70's as the forecast high and I'm so excited! 9+ months pregnant I'm all about the clothes that are comfortable and feel good, easy to wear and layer on or off as need be. #hormones I crave soft, stretchy and cozy and have been living in a few key tops from Cuddl Duds lately. One I'm even thinking will transition easily into a nursing go to!

This Cuddl Duds Softwear stretch ribbed black henley is so stretchy and has a silky feel to it. With a few top buttons I feel like I can easily wear this as a nursing top too.  It's perfect for layering under sweaters or cardigans since it's form fitting and not at all bulky.  It includes thumb holes so you won't have to tug at the sleeve or worry about an updraft when it's especially chilly.  Comes in 7 different colors. 

One of my favorite go to colors for fall is always olive.  I love the rich tone this time of year so I definitely snagged this Cuddl Duds Soft Knit tee when I saw it.  It comes in a ton of colors, 6 I think, and is SO, SO, SO soft.  I love the tulip stitch detail of the hem giving it a cute cut without any worry of exposing the belly.  It is not maternity but stretches effortlessly over the bump and I didn't even size up.  Great for those casual weekends when you just want to cuddle up and watch football while lounging on the couch. 

And whether your pregnant or not a forgiving but flattering options for lounge wear is always a good drapped cardigan. This Soft Knit Wrap from Cuddl Duds has been my current go to for early morning drop off when its chilly but then later warms up a bit.  Fits on easy over my other layers, again has the thumb hole and is super soft.  

Best part is that you can shop all these looks at Kohl's and they're offering 30% off warm weather wear!

Nursery Sneak Peak with Forever Eclectic by Child Craft

Saturday, October 27, 2018

Eeeekk! We are down to less than 4 weeks and you'd think with this being my third I'd be prepared and stress free. NOT.  I can't seem to get a few hours together at the same time to do much of anything in the nursery that feels like forward progress but, I am moving the ball forward, even if it's at a snails pace.  I finally got my Forever Eclectic by Child Craft dresser and chest in and filled! That is success in my book.  So, with that said, I'm sharing a sneak peak of the nursery.
