Oh Baby

Sweater: TARGET
Flats: ZARA

And so...the reason for my absence. I tell you what, I was bursting at the seems to tell you guys of this little bebe. Some guessed it, mostly because there is no way I could have eaten THAT much for lunch. Also the package of saltines sitting at my desk at work was a dead ringer.

Growing a baby is hard work! Much harder the second time around, it seems. My first pregnancy was so easy; I felt great and was never sick! This time the morning sickness is so so real. Rather, the morning, noon, and night sickness. As the 12 week mark came, thankfully the nausea started to subside.

We had our first appointment and our little dancing bean was eager to show off. So wiggly (and much like her/his brother!) Both Thomas and I think it's a girl. Liam too but he also thinks he has a brother in his belly. He's been super into talking about a dog we used to have, Sadie. Every day, completely out the blue, he walks around the house talking about his "sister dog" and how he gets to see her real soon. I'm fairly certain he thinks I'm going to give birth to a dog. So he's in for a real surprise.

Romper: Target | Slides: Target | Scarf: Thrifted

This summer has been the season of minimal dressing. I've acquired pieces that are cohesive with each other (aka neutral) and can be combined with a variety of things in my closet. I just haven't had a huge desire to fuss over what to where. When things get real lazy, cue the romper (a good one for you tall ladies too!). Too bad trying to use the restroom was such a challenge in this thing.

6th Anniversary: Part 2

As I said in my last post, we just celebrated our 6th anniversary and I wanted to take pictures in my dress again. Firm believer that your wedding dress should get more than one use. And sooooo, a picture heavy post. Five gold stars if you make it to the end.

Celebrating Our 6th Wedding Anniversary: Part 1

July 24 was our 6 year anniversary and I wanted to create a fun, sentimental afternoon instead of buy him an expensive gift that required no thought. So I came up with a scavenger hunt-six because you know, anniversary-that covered all the major high points in our marriage. For each clue, I created a poem directing where we would go next.

Follow along 😘

First up was Macaroni Grill where we had dinner the night we got engaged. Crucial tidbit, get the mac n cheese balls. Best little pieces of fried goodness you'll ever have.

Then we were off to our first home when we were married. We have some of our very best memories in this house. Though the AC was questionable, I think this will always be my favorite.

Next was the school. Him and the library have become best friends over the years. 😜 And then to my office, the place I got my first big girl job! Also Liam loved to "read" each clue to us. A whole lot of gibberish and exclamation points!
PAUSE: random family photo shoot that Liam wanted no part of. Not our best work here. You'll see...
  Next, Thomas' job! (Clue #5 as he's artfully showing us here)
 The next clue was our favorite little ice cream place that serves homemade ice cream (see previous post). It was over 100, 109 with heat index) so ice cream felt necessary at this point. 

 I've been wanting to do a photo session with my wedding dress so for the final clue I had our dress clothes ready for us in the back of my car. I made a flower crown and a boutonnière. At this point it was so hot and we were fairly sure we were dying so we went home to take a nap before pictures. It was perfectly timed with golden hour and those pictures are something I'm going to cherish forever. Those will be coming in my next post.
