Can't Live Without It.

It's Friday!
And even though I have to work a full day on Saturday, I am one happy girl.
The weather is supposed to be perfect on Sunday and I plan to dust off my fav straw hat, sit on the back porch, relax, soak up some rays and drink a few mocktails....

My straw hat is just one thing I simply can't live without. I love it. She has seen me through some awesome Derby parties, Clemson football games and many, many trips to the beach.

She packs beautifully, folds up, floats and can be monogramed...what else could a girl ask for?

If you in the market for a new summer hat, check this girl out!

Of course I am linking up with my fav Friday gals... Stephanie, Cait and Laura for Can't Live Without It Link Up!

Have a great weekend y'all!

Bumpdate: 18 Weeks.

So, it's only Thursday...that's the bad news.
But the good news, is that I've got a bumpdate for you.
Now your week is complete...

How far along: 18 weeks

Size of babe: a sweet cute!

Gender: Count down is on! 1 week till we find out.

Maternity clothes: Now that it's getting warmer, I'm able to throw on some existing dresses from last year and make it work for now. But as for pants and shorts, yes, I am totally rocking the full panel.

Stretch marks: None thus far.

Best moment of the week: Last weekend was heaven. I laid in bed, ate a ton of carbs and spent some much needed time with my little niece and nephew. My nephew Palmer asked me, "Auntie, how did your baby get in there?" referring to my tummy.... I told him to ask his uncle Reid.

Miss anything: Good God yes! I am dying for an adult beverage. Not because I am an alcoholic or anything but because I want to feel "cool" again. And I hate that side eye that the waitress gives me when I say "I'm fine with just water".

Movement: Still those little flutters...can't wait to feel a full on kick!

Sleep: I am sleeping like a rock these days. I have stopped drinking water before I go to bed and that seems to help with the urge to go pee in the middle of the night.

Belly button: Still in but it is starting to look weird and I don't like it.

Cravings: Sweets and potato chips....And have you seen these? If they were at my local WaWa, they would consume my life.

Symptoms: Felling full after eating, hungry all the time, pressure in my stomach and breaking out like a 15 year old...seriously, I have never in my life had acme like this. And can we chat for just a moment about round ligament pain and sneezing while laying down? Holy cow....I thought I might die. That was no joke.

Researching this week: Rockers...why are they so damn expensive? I am thinking about enlisting the husband to tackle this Ikea hack. What else you got for me?

Looking forward to: Ummm this time next week we will know if this growing bump is a boy or a girl! Could there be anything else more exciting?

Linking up with Annie and Natalie today!

Check y'all tomorrow...

The Crazy News.

This was one of those posts that just sorta wrote itself.
My fingers found the keyboard and within 15 minuets this happened....

My husband finds it depressing that I know more about what the Duggars are up to or which of the OG teen moms is pregnant again but cannot tell him who is currently in the running to be our next president....
Clearly by his eye roll, Jim Bob was not the correct answer.

I try really hard to read the Skimm every morning, but find myself just skimming over it to read their witty sub titles. They really are quite clever.

And if it weren't for the CNN updates on my iphone, I wouldn't have a clue what is going on in our world, much less our country or Virginia.

  I find the news highly biased and down right depressing. Everything is so negative and there is just so much hate and blame. It's not that I don't care about what is going on around me, believe me, I care too much. I just don't understand why can't we empower people and use the news to celebrate the real heros in this world?

Last night my phone kept blowing up with updates about Baltimore.
I went to turn on the evening news last night in bed and to my horror, I had to use the search button to find it. It's sad but true that I could not find a news station...they were no where near Bravo, MTV, TLC or even the Food network.
I settled on one and hunkered down to watch the craziness unfold.

I was not prepared.
 Not prepared for the riots, curfew, state of emergency and just all the violence.
I could not believe my eyes.
My little protected bubble was popped and I was skyrocketing down to reality.

It was like scenes from a movie. A movie that I did not sign up to watch. I was mortified and scared for our fellow country men and women. I am pretty sure I sat there with my mouth gaping open for minutes...not wanting to believe that we could do this to each other and thinking about the world we are bringing our little babe into. It scared me to think about what this world will be like when our little ones are adults...what are we laying the ground work for?
All that came to mind was Ciaos.

I could feel a can of crazy about to burst off it went and on went re-runs of Big Bang Theory.
Out of sight, out of mind.

Do I live in a state of denial?
Maybe....probably so.
Am I happier for it?

I'll just stick myself back in to my little bubble of denial and float blissfully on by. I'll accept my husbands teasing with a smile on my face and then proceed to tell him all about Bruce Jenner and how Kim is in full support of his transformation.

Call me crazy, but I am just not into the news.

Summer Family Room Reset

Nesting is a real thing during the 2nd trimester and my mind has been running on overdrive thinking of ways to update our little house without breaking the bank.

The first thing on my list is our family room.

It's in need of a refresh, stat.

I am really ashamed to admit that I still have my burlap deer pillows rocking on the couch.
Something needs to be done about that or my husband will take matters in to his own hands.
And that would be a scary thought... aka Clemson throw pillows and footballs on the mantel.

I knew I wanted to keep things light, crisp and fresh with the reset.
Our family room is the only living space in our entire house and serves a ton of purposes.
I need it to be causal, classic and comfy.

wanna see what I have up my sleeve?

Summer Family Room Reset

I had pillows made a couple years ago, similar to these in the oasis color, that I needed to work in and decided that pairing them with these dotted beauties, would give me just the little touch of classic I was looking for. Due to my husband's love of Clemson, I also have some orange accents throughout the house and thought the colors in this fish pillow work swimmingly with the rest of the collection.
I am waiting for the next sale to grab that bad boy...

I've had my eye on this print from the Minted Art Marketplace for some time and this little refresh gave me the perfect excuse to pull the trigger and finally buy the damn thing.
I plan to stick this baby above the fireplace and stare at it all the time.

My collection of clear glass will get dusted off and placed around the room. I plan to fill them with fresh flowers or just leave them alone.
Less is more right?

Loving this gold tray, I need a catch all on the coffee table and this little dude will be perfect for just that.

The rug I own and love it. I cannot say more about this rug and the price. It's 70% off right now so hurry up and buy one for every room.

I am just waiting on the print to arrive and then I'll photograph it, and share it with y'all.

What do you think so far?

Can't Live Without It: Baby Bargains.

Friday, you have never looked so sweet!

I cannot tell you how happy I am that the weekend is here and we have absolutely no plans. I honestly cannot remember the last time that we had the whole weekend to ourselves.

And since it's Friday, that also means I'm linking up with StephanieCait and Laura for another can't live without it post!

One thing I cannot live without is this book.

Baby Bargains came highly recommended by countless girlfriends of mine and they swear by it.  My sister in law used it with both of her babies and totally bossed me into getting the latest addition.

And so glad I did.

This book will walk you though what to spend money on and what to totally skip. Cribs, mattresses, carseats - you name it, it's in there.

And it's a bargain itself, coming in at only $12 on Amazon Prime.

If your pregnant or know a gal that is, snag this little gem.
You'll be happy you did!

In other news, did everyone hear that Full House is making a comeback...
Fuller House will most def be on my watch list...."have mercy".

My life is now complete.

Have a great weekend!

Bumpdate: 17 Weeks.

Howdy. I'm back!
High Point Market was great but gawd I am exhausted. 
So let's get right in to updating y'all on this growing bump I've got rocking...

How far along:  17 weeks

Size of babe: pomegranate

Gender: 2 week count down begins now!

Maternity clothes: Yup. The shorts I have on are def full panel maternity but I am still rocking regular old tee shirts and maxi dresses. I am in love with the full panel thing because it completely eliminates muffin tops and will provide some much needed support down the road. 

Stretch marks: nothing yet! 

Best moment of the week: Coming home after a long couple days away and seeing the husband and the pups. Nothing beats being home. Oh, and also booking our newborn photog

Miss anything: Yes, wine. Always wine. We went to a couple great dinners while at market and let me tell you, the wine was flowing but this girl only had a taste...womp womp. 

Movement: Still having those little flutters and loving every second of them! 

Belly button: still in.

Cravings: Salt, chips and fruit. 

Symptoms: My face looks like a 15 year old - I am totally breaking out all over the place. Concealer had become my new bff. Pressure in my stomach and growing pains. 

Researching this week: baby picture ideas on Pinterest and how the whole maternity leave thing works. 

Looking forward to: 2 weeks till our gender appointment and this weekend....we don't have any plans and I am over the moon!

Oh, and I am linking up with Annie and Natalie for Thoughts for Thursday! 

Sunday, April 19, 2015


Reid and I had a rare chance for a totally unplanned date night on Friday and we did not let the impending rain slow us down. We decided to try this new burger place in the Libbie/Grove area called Jack Brown's Beer & Burger Joint. I personally love any restaurant that has "joint" in the name and this one did not disappoint. With mac and cheese as a toping for a burger and fried Oreos on menu, we will be a regulars for sure. After our Oreos, we ran next door for ice cream...I am eating for two after all. 

Saturday, I worked all day long. Reid played golf and I was incredibly jealous that he was out enjoying the beautiful weather while I was stuck in doors. I suggested, ok demanded, we go out to dinner, I did not care where but we had to sit outside. After dinner, I hightailed it home and hopped in to bed for a what ended up being a crazy night of attempted online shopping and whispering profanity at Target's website. I set my alarm for 2am...woke up, checked Target's website - nada. Set my alarm again for 2:30 - nope, nothing...set my alarm for 3am - womp womp...finally around 3:30 something, I was able log on to order one thing only. After that the site crashed and so did I. I woke up on Sunday morning to find this sleeping next to me, not my husband. Oops...

To add to the crazy, I decided to brave the Williamsburg outlets with my bestie on Sunday morning. A couple maternity tops later and a splurge at J.Crew Factory, we made it back to Richmond with time to spare. I took a two hour nap then headed out to dinner with a long time friend and her beau to Max's on Broad.

| Visual Comfort |
I am headed to High Point Market today so things will be a little quiet until Thursday on the blog. Follow on insta and I promise to amaze you with fabulous lighting like the beauty above!

Chat with y'all Thursday.

can't live without it.

Hello Friday, I'm so happy you're here. I wish I could toast you with a big glass of red wine because this week has felt like the longest one ever. But I'll just raise my water bottle instead! 

I am going to keep this post short and sweet and tell y'all the thing I simply cannot live without this week.

It's this.

 Don't know about y'all but I'm on my iphone all day long and the battery just isn't what it used to be. This little gadget has saved me time after time and one of the best things ever. 

It comes all ready to go with a travel pouch and a USB charger and will work on just about any smart phone. The best feature is it's's tiny. Lipstick tube tiny. 

I just charge it during the day while at work and throw it in my purse on the way out the door. It's always on hand, ready to go should I need a little extra juice when Insta stalking. 

It comes in all sorts of fun colors and for under $20 with Amazon Prime, it's a steal. 

Go grab one and thank me later... 

Oh, and have a fabulous weekend loves! 


Shout out to StephanieCait and Laura for the hosting this link up and making my Friday post the easiest ever.  Love y'all for that!

Little white lies.

 Being pregnant can really cause you to become a pretty darn good liar.

 I'm not talking about big lies.... I'm talking about those little white ones.

The ones that are really hard to keep up with and make you think on your toes.

I feel like at the beginning of my pregnancy I had a really hard time remembering who I told what to and what I actually said.

These are the actual conversations I held with others and myself in my early stages of pregnancy.
Please don't think I'm too crazy.
Blame the baby if you must.

"Oh, it was my New Years resolution to drink more water."
Yea, right, I have to force myself to drink this stuff all for the good of the baby.

Was the nausea from my fertility meds or because I ate something that did not agree with me?
What did I tell that person? Think Caroline, think.

How many times this week have I used the excuse that the dog ran out the front door? Is anyone at work catching on yet that I feel like death 24 hours a day and cannot drag myself out of bed in the mornings? I should start telling people I had to run a few errands instead, yea that sounds better for sure.

 "Sorry, I have a lunch date with my hubby" was a much more reasonable response than "Hell no I don't want Chinese food for lunch, what do you want me to do, throw up on the floor?" Hah. Really I had a lunch date with some saltines and a nap in my car at Target.

"Oh, no wine for me please, I gave that up for Lent" Yea, right.....I am so preggers and would love a glass of red wine. Thank God for us good Christians taking part in self-denial and moderation for Lent.

"Everything is great! I am just taking a little time away from the blog to focus on work and home"
 Blah, Blah, Blah.... What I meant to say is that, from the moment I get home at night, I find the couch and then proceed to not move for the rest of the evening before retiring to bed at precisely 8pm having not done a damn thing.

I am so happy to have this baby news out in the open and for the whole wide world to know all the craziness that is ensuing in this little pea head of mine.

Other mamas out there, please tell me you went through this...
even if it is just a little white lie.


thanks Annie and Natalie for the best Thursday link-up ever!

Bumpdate: 16 weeks

I'm baffled it's only Wednesday.
This week is dragging...anyone else feeling me on this?

I am also baffled how big this bump of mine is getting...
here's the latest on that topic.

How far along: only 16 weeks

Size of baby: a dill pickle

Gender: only 4 more weeks till we find out!

Maternity Clothes: oh yea. I totally popped early. Everyone is promising me it is either bloat or the fact that I was tiny to begin with. I choose to believe it is all baby and not the entire bag of Lays potato chips I ate yesterday. Ps. I am rocking these in the picture above, they are amazing.

Stretch marks: none that I can see...yet

Best moment of the week: eating that entire bag of chips mentioned above and receiving our first couple baby gifts.

Miss anything: an ice, cold beer and that club sandwich is still on my mind.

Movement: yup....little flutters!

Belly button: still in.

Cravings: Anything sweet and salty. Chocolate covered pretzels don't stand a chance in our house.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Chicken still grosses me out and really any meat at this point. I really have no interest in it at all.

Symptoms: Headaches, headaches and more headaches. I will tell you that I have found some relief from peppermint oil in the shower and Vicks Vapo Rub. I literally rub the Vicks on the spot that hurts and the numbing affect dissipates some of the pain.  My bras are also driving me nuts. I am having this little tingling feeling where my underwire hits. Looks like mama is going bra shopping this weekend. And maybe heart burn....jury is still out on that one.

Researching this week:  Baby carriers. Think I have it down between the Ergo 360 and the Lillie Baby Airflow. Got anything to share about either of these?

Looking forward to: Hearing the babe's heartbeat at my 16 week Dr's appt this morning and maxi dresses...I am dying over this one!'s getting real here on the blog.
I'm letting some of my preganacy crazy out for sure.

10 Things I'm just not that good at.

Ever wanted to know more useless information about me?

If that answer is yes then today is your lucky day....

In no particular order, here are 10 things that I'm just really not that good at.

Closing cabinet doors.
For some unknown reason, I am really bad at this. I tend to get what I need out of the cabinet and then not bother to close the door and then leave the room. Drives Reid and any past roommates insane.

Resisting the urge to pet any dog I see.
I realize that it might look strange for a 30 year old to ask to ask a stranger if they can pet their dog. But I believe that all dogs are created equal and deserve my love and attention.

Remembering my phone.
I am notorious for walking out the door, getting half way down the street and then frantically dig through my purse in search of my phone. 9 times out of 10 it's hidden up in my bed, under all the covers.

Interrupting people.
This is a horrible habit that I am trying to kick. It is not that I mean to interrupt them, I just get so excited that I want to chime in.

Not ordering 3 drinks overtime we eat out.
At brunch, I always want a coffee, juice and a bloody Mary. For dinner, I really like a water, diet coke and a wine. I don't particularly like to drink while I eat, just before and after. Crazy, I know.

Buying just one of something.
I have this really bad tendency to always buy double of everything, Double toilet paper, double soap, double tank tops, double shoes. What if we run out and we really need it? OR worse, what if I love it and they don't have it anymore?
I just want to be prepared.

Plucking my own eyebrows.
I have a hard time inflicting pain on myself. I get through half of one and then give up. I spend the rest of the day being self conscience about the way I look and force myself to leave work and immediately get them waxed.

Not using WebMD.
Lord. I try to self diagnose myself with everything. Being a hypochondriac and having access to google is a bad combo. I am pretty sure I have had a brain tumor, the whooping cough and Aspartame poisoning all at the same time. That was one hell of a rough day.

Writing thank you notes.
I was raised better than to not write thank you notes but I stink at them. If I do not do them immediately, they will never get done. Period.

Putting an away message up at work.
For the love of gawd, I am just so not good at this simple task. I have to set a reminder in my outlook calendar to do this every single time.

Well now you know 10 completely useless facts about me.
Go and seise the day.

The Weekend.

I don't know about y'all but our weekend went by in the blink of an eye. Parties, Jr League, sunshine, birthday girls, food, food and more food.

I was thrilled beyond words to break out my Lilly and Jacks from their hiding place and feel like a real southerner again. I even toasted the event with a sweetened iced coffee.

We just loved celebrating these two little sweet girl's birthdays.

We were terrible puppy parents all weekend, so on Sunday evening we tried to make it up to them by letting them run wild in the back yard, allowing them to bark their heads off at our sweet next door neighbor and giving them pieces of our pork tender loin. 

And since I had been nursing one massive headache all weekend long, I sent myself upstairs shortly after diner to wallow in my sorrows about the weekend being over, watch terrible tv and snuggle with my snoogle. 

Hope y'all had just as fun filled of a weekend as we did!

Can't live without it.

I am so excited to be likin up with my good friend Stephanie and fellow, amazing bloggers Cait and Laura for the first Can't Live Without It Link Up! 

Can I just tell y'all how excited I am that it is almost the weekend? This week has been one for the books and this mama to be could really use some down time and a Starbucks stat. 

Now let's talk about these wedge sandals. I really can't live without them, honest to gawd. 

When I saw that Old Navy had brought these back this season, I bought two pairs of the tan and one of the black, just to be one the safe side.

I practically lived in these last summer, in fact I wore my pair out (hence the reason for buying two this season). I found that these went with everything and were super comfy. They also transitioned nicely from work to play and everyone asked where I found them.
I am beating a dead horse here but Old Navy to the rescue, again...

Simple and a classic, I promise these will become a staple on your closet floor or back porch. 

I am off till Monday, check the insta feed if you really really miss me.

Summer fashion lovin.

As the warmer temps finally, finally make their way up to Virginia, I find myself lusting after summer clothes already. One piece bathing suits, shapeless yet flattering dresses, flowy tops and adorable sandals are all in my sights this season. I'm already gearing up for a hot summer with these sweet little finds.

This cover up.
Old Navy has been totally with it this season and I have taken advantage of just about every single 35% off sale they have offered. I picked up this little cover up the last go around in a size larger than I normally wear and I am so glad I did. It will be great over the summer to cover up all my lady bumps.

This suit.
I am dying over this suit. Obsessed. I follow this company on insta and am pretty much in love with every single thing. But the Sunset Blvd suit takes the cake. I think I can totally rock this pre and postpartum. Sadly, I have not pulled the trigger yet, but I think I will today with some motivation from you.

This shirt.
In love. I went ahead and grabbed it this morning. I think it will work with this bump I have rockin. Perfect for a date night with the hubs or out to mocktails with the ladies. Now all I need is a good pair of maternity white jeans...any suggestions?

These sandals. 
I picked these up because I could not believe the price. I think they will be great for the pool and beach this summer. I did end up returning them for a size down because I have narrow feet.

This dress.
Stephanie posted about this dress in the long version a while ago, which I immediately bought and love. Now, they have a short version and I think it is equally amazing. Dress it up or down, it will be a fav, I know it.

This necklace.
Clearly, I saved the best for last...I am swooning over this little piece, perfect with a grey Target tee and white jeans. And J.Crew Factory has the best statement pieces on the cheap. Today all their women's jewelry is only $15 or under. Now that is a total deal one cannot pass up! I have my eye on this one $15 bucks a pop, why not grab two? Oh and ps, those Target tees are 3 for $27 right now...ready set go ladies!

It's going to be an interesting summer dressing not only me, but this growing bump of mine.

Ok ladies, your turn...who has the scoop on some new sunnies that will fit my tiny face?
Seriously, I wear kid sized glasses...

Tomorrow I'm linking up with some lovely ladies....check it out here!

Bumpdate: 15 weeks

How far along: 15 big ones

Size of baby: Navel orange, 4.5" long, can you believe it?

Gender: too early, still thinking blue, but secretly hoping pink. 

Maternity Clothes: oh for sure. I feel like I popped early. Maybe it is from all of the crap I have been eating. I had a slight melt down this week when I could not find anything to wear on Monday morning.

woe is me. 

Stretch marks: nada

Sleep:  I bought this and I did not like it. Then my dog fell in love with it so I felt like I had to keep it. I made myself sleep with it the past two nights and honestly, I have never slept more sound. I turn off my light and put my sleep app on and the next thing I know, it is morning.


Best moment this week: Flutters. It's either that or gas. I am choosing to believe flutters.

Miss anything: Wine, white skinny jeans and my Lilly Easter dress. 

Movement: See above

Belly button in or out:  Innie

Cravings: Still spaghetti. Target brand fruit strips, I could eat a whole box. Popcorn and anything but water. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Chicken sounds really gross to me this week. Yuck. Seeing it, smelling it, watching it grill on our smoker, no thank you. 

Symptoms: Growing aches in my lower abdomen and some lovely round ligament pains when I cough or sneeze. My ta-tas look really big this week too. 

Researching this week: Car seats. I am leaning towards the Maxi-Cosi Mico Max 30. Anyone out there have one or any other suggestions for this confused mama? 

Looking forward to: Our 16 week appointment next week, enjoying this warm weather and two kiddo birthday parties this weekend.

Promise, promise, promise I have a non preggo post for you tomorrow. 

Till then loves!

What they don't tell you.

So, most of you figured out why I went on hiatus from the blog....I got pregnant.

But it was so much more than just that.

We had been trying to get pregnant for months and months and it was really hard.

Then I got pregnant and was not really prepared for what happened after the positive test.

There are things people just do not tell you about being newly pregnant...

so let me fill you in.

When you are actively trying to get pregnant, like really trying, no one tells you that the process is really hard, confusing and sometimes heartbreaking. The fertility monitors, apps, thermometers and calendars - ugh.

No one warns you about the panic and elation that ensues the moment the little blue double lines appear. "Did that glass of wine I had the night before hurt the baby? Is everything alright down there? I am going to be a mother, holy crap, this may be the happiest moment of my entire life!"

The fact that you find out so early these days is sorta hell. We found out we were pregnant exactly two weeks after conception. So that meant that I still had to wait 4 more weeks to see the Dr for the first time.

And oh gawd, the wait was torture for sure. So much can happen in those 4 weeks and I was a nervous wreck. I was always wondering what the Dr would find at that first appointment...would my little blip have a heartbeat? Would it just be one or two babes in there? I know this sounds crazy but I did not really allow myself to get too excited until that first appointment. After that, I was in love, once you see your little one on an ultrasound monitor it all becomes so real.

Hormones, totally not prepared.
Enough said.

The most surprising thing out of all of this is that from the moment I found out I was pregnant, I felt this overwhelming sense of protection and love for my little babe. I never expected to feel this emotion so soon or for it to be so intense. I would lay down my life for this little alien inside my body, plain and simple.

I realize that there is not a magical hand book to this or a rule of thump that applies to all. This is the biggest adventure we have ever taken on and we are bound to make our fair share of mistakes. What no one told me was that even after all this anxiety, stress, concern and worry, I would be excited, happy and over the moon elated to take on this amazing challenge called motherhood.

For all the mamas out there, what were some of the things you were just not ready for?
Please tell me I was not the only one.


And please know that I am just expressing my pregnant, hormonal opinions here. Everyone's journey is totally their own and this is just part of mine. I wrote several posts before my secret was out and hope you find them real and relatable.

Bumpdate: 14 weeks

How far along: 14 weeks

Size of baby: app says a brilliant beet, about 3" long

Gender: too early, but I would put my money on a boy....

Maternity Clothes: still loving my maternity jeans from Old Navy and basically everything from there right now. I have also discovered that maternity leggings are God's give to pregnant women.

Stretch marks: not thus far.

Sleep: Once I get to sleep, some nights I sleep like a log, other nights, I am up 3 times and cannot get comfortable to save my life. I broke down last week and ordered this I am hoping it changes my life and causes me to not stomach or back sleep. Anyone out there rocking some success stories with a Snoogle?

Best moment this week: Feeling like I look pregnant and not like a bloated mess. And convincing the husband that it is now time to go look at baby stuff!

Miss anything: I am missing a Corona this week. The sunshine outside is making me crave a nice light beer. I am not a huge drinker BUT do enjoy a beer now and then.

Movement: Nope.

Belly button in or out: in still!

Cravings: Spaghetti. It is weird, I know. And anything sweet....donuts, ice-cream, sugar cereal, brownie sundaes....This baby is def already taking after it's daddy with this sweet tooth.

Anything making you queasy or sick: I find that if I don't keep up with my water drinking or eat regularly, I am still getting a little sick to my stomach. Other than that, I am a happy camper this week!

Symptoms: Growing pains in my lower abdomen. I guess things are getting a bit bigger down there and I am feeling a little pressure and ligament pains. All is normal though, nothing to worry about! Not being able to get comfortable and get to sleep. Plus I think it may be time for me to invest in some new bras if you get my drift.

Researching this week: Strollers. I am leaning towards the Baby Jogger line......Mama's out there, give me the low down. What other brands should I be looking at? I am looking for something that I can easily handle by myself and take on a walk around the block and to the park. We are not runners and don't have large SUVs.

Looking forward to: Spending time with my family on Easter and getting this little babe's room all cleaned out so we can get a move on with the nursery!

Make sure you to follow along on insta with me this week. The bump and I are enjoying ourselves in the Big Apple!
