18 Weeks

Happy Sunday! We’ve had a pretty good weekend – got some housework and errands done, had a little ice cream picnic with friends on Saturday, had a breakfast date with out-of-town friends this morning, and a little family birthday party this afternoon. Summers never fail to be nonstop busy! Here’s my 18 week bumpdate! How… [Read More]

Nursery Inspiration

I’ve been thinking a lot about the nursery and figured I should start compiling my most favorite bits of inspiration. I want a room that is pretty and airy, and not too baby-ish. The colors I’m going for are light pinks (blush and flamingo-pink), peaches, golds, and whites. I don’t really want to do a… [Read More]

13 & 14 Weeks

I’m a little late posting these – I’m actually 15 weeks now. I blame the sickness I’ve been fighting this week! :) Sorry for looking a little ragged in this picture. I almost forgot to take a 13 week picture, so this was super last minute and I was suffering from a killer headache! How… [Read More]

Gender Reveal Photoshoot

On Monday, April 24th I received a call that the results of my Harmony test were in and that everything looked good. Baby is healthy! I took my sister-in-law with me to go pick up the gender results in an envelope, and she went and picked out a pair of little baby moccasins for our… [Read More]

Spring so far

I’m really loving spring lately, especially with the weather warming up. And REALLY especially with the nausea mostly gone. Hallelujah. I figured I’d just recap spring so far, since the my first trimester kept me pretty absent on the blog. :) Here’s a snap of me fighting nausea with one of my furry sidekicks and some… [Read More]

My First Trimester

I can talk about it now because I made it through, but OH MY GOODNESS was the first trimester awful! I got hit bad with the morning all day sickness. It started on week six (which I refer to as week sick) and lasted all the way until week 13. I threw up too many… [Read More]


Things sure have changed around here. Spring is in full swing and trees are in bloom everywhere, but the biggest change for us is that we are expecting our first baby later this year! We are over-the-moon excited, and maybe just a tad overwhelmed at all that we have to do before babe’s arrival ;) I’ve been… [Read More]
