Embroidered Maxi Dress

I have been wearing pretty much nothing but dresses lately. This dress is not maternity and you can pick it up at Target.
Life has been crazy lately, I went to a blogging conference and learned a lot of new things. Including switching my site over… so this is where I have been for the past week. So here you have it, my new site’s facelift and all. I’m still working out glitches so bare with me. I did everything myself so this is why it has taken 100 youtube tutorials later. HA!
I’m still pregnant lol! duh! 32 weeks this week 8 more to go. It’s getting really real, I think I actually may be able to say I’m ready to meet her now. Forever I thought, no I’m not ready… Am I old enough to be a mom? I don’t know what to do? How am I going to work, wife, and mother? But, I have to think…. ‘Everyone does this, it’ll be fine’.. and scary.
We are almost finished with her crib and bedding. I put a top coat on it Monday and finished Tuesday so this weekend we may get it together. I got a mattress for her, this one¬†from Target. So it will be ready for the crib and bedding. We take our maternity pictures next week so I want her nursery to be finished. Nothing like pushing the deadline huh? At least it’s not Aniston’s due date deadline.
She is moving like crazy lately and I can see and feel body parts sticking out of my sides all the time. Jake thinks she is doing gymnastics in there…. she probably is. Gymnast in training. I skipped last weeks workouts and continued again this week. I was down with allergies last week so I didn’t do much but work and work. I didn’t want it to turn into something worse…..and I also had Jake sommoning me to my bed or the couch lol.
I’ve got a new fast hair tutorial I’m working on for you, hopefully we get it up this weekend.
I hope everyone has a great week you are half way there!

Wavy Hair

I hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday. I have my first baby shower today with my work friends and I’m so excited. I have had a lot of questions about how I crimp/wave my hair so I have made a tutorial for you below. I use this crimper to make the waves. Click on the video below to watch it and I have also linked all the tools I used below. Happy Sunday!

Laced details

// Top – Similar Here, Here, and Here // Jeans – Here // Sandals – Similar Here, Here, and Here // Earrings – Here // Sunglasses – Here // Handbag – Here //
I always thought when I got pregnant I would wear a lot of flowy tops and dresses. Turns out, I feel more confident in a fitted or semi fitted top or dress. When you can tell you look pregnant it is so much better than just feeling the in-between. I do still wear a lot of flowy things. Especially when I feel extra frumpy.
I wanted to show you this shirt because it has both flowing and fitted features. It flows open to kind of enhance my bump. But, no this is not a maternity shirt. I actually got it three years ago for my engagement pictures from a boutique. ( I can’t remember ) So I have looked and looked for something similar and linked a lot of tops below. They are all non maternity so would be great if you aren’t expecting too. 
I also wanted to share a little secret with you about these photos… Do you see that big fluffy dog I was walking. Well… it’s not really mine, if you’ve been following me for awhile you know I have two lab puppies so I love big dogs but geez louise, mine is not this big. While we were shooting a lady and her dog were walking by and my photographer asked if I could walk it. (hands over face emoji) oh my gosh! She’s a little a lot more outgoing than me :). But it was fun and I got to meet a sweet puppy, yes this dog was only a puppy! 
Anyways… I hope you are all having a great week! 
Thank you for stopping by and reading!

Where to go for a “baby-moon”

Shop the look
Maternity Shorts – J-Crew Cardigan – Target V-Neck Tee – Target Sandals – Similar Here, Similar Here Handbag – Michael Kors Watch – Fitbit Sunglasses – Ray Ban
This is an easy look for running errands or a weekend outfit. I love my J-Crew maternity shorts, they are sooo comfy and they don’t pinch my thighs off. Apparently when you are pregnant… EVERYTHING grows haha. So I love this!
Jake and I are planning a “baby-moon” trip. You know the trips you see on pinterest of everyone going on with their husband before the baby gets here. The last trip. It’s probably not a real baby-moon but for us it will be perfect. We are going to stay pretty close to home just incase something happens since I will be a lot further along. We are thinking maybe Arkansas… Has anyone ever been? Where was your favorite places to go? We are open to different places too just wanting to stay close to Texas so we can drive. We want to relax, layout, eat, something along the lines of those things. 
I have looked up Arkansas on pinterest and all I see is pretty scenery with a lot of outdoor activities, which we love. I am also pregnant so not knowing if that’s the best option makes me a little nervous. I would love to go to a pretty beach somewhere and just lounge but I think our timing or our jobs will not allow for that.
Any thoughts? Tell me where you would go for your baby-moon. 
Have a great Friday and thanks for reading!
