33 Week Baby Update and Maternity Dresses

Selah was measuring tiny. Sure that is normal…but her marginal velementous umbilical cord insertion had the doctors dub me high risk. Mainly because that means she could have a hard time getting nutrients and all that in general. High enough to demand extra visits and recently have me coming 2 days a week to monitor her heart, contractions and growth…small contractions were coming too soonn…AND was put on small bedrest…

Is that scary? Well for someone that is a anxiety prone person….like ME….

Time for a baby update!

The Perfect Maternity/ Non maternity Outfit for Spring!

Springtime is simply, my favorite.

Especially being pregnant!

I love how its not to hot (hello swelling in the heat!) and its warm enough to throw on a cute little springtime dress and a denim jacket with some vans.

This is my go-to outfit that I would choose to wear EVERYDAY…if it were socially exceptable to do so.

I got so many compliments on this dress that I had to share it with you guys, and the reason I love it even more is because it fits with my third timester bump!

Home Maternity Shoot

I had received 7 Hello’s on one thread via Facebook messenger over a 3 year span.

To me, I had not been a fan of responding to any guy via any kind of social media!

Don’t get me wrong, I knew WHO he was. He was the older hot baseball player in high school. The one Greek god of a man that was a stud at football. If I had any wild guess, he was a catch! But, nah. Not social media.

Years later, I had sat at the top of a stair case and prayed. I let God know I was ready. Ready for my husband. I was willing to wait. Willing to take life slower.

THEN, I ran into him.

My Favorite Pregnancy Must-Haves

I say this with a full heart when I say that I didnt know what I was getting into when I first became pregnant. I always dreamt of being pregnant and of course having kids, but really didn’t know a thing about it.

Sickness? Pshhh…bed rest, movies, and popsicle with a stomach ache. Whatever.

NO. Talk about not wanting to go to sleep because you dont want to wake up and do it over again!

I laugh now.

It took me to the 14th week to start feeling normal again, with the occasional, “babe pull over…i need to find a bush!”

so glamorous.

Because morning sickness is so dang HARD and there is nothing that worked for me other than sleep and carbs. I have little advice. I just lived on applying peppermint and lavender to my temples and under my nose and smelled lemon essential oil whenever i got nauseous! I also took b6 which I cannot recommend enough! I linked that below ;) Just do your best babe, you got this! Call me if you need a smoothie!

So today, I will share the things that I do LOVE that are worth your while no matter how far along you are!

Flea Market Finds- What I bought and how I styled it!

My shoes would be telling lies if they said my socks ever matched.

I was told countless amount of times by my mother that I look homeless because I didn't brush my hair.

I don't know how many pieces of paper that was unwillingly sacrificed as daily art projects....

New Aspiration: Living Simply (Welcome to our little Home!)

We are made to be simple beings. 

But we just love to create CHAOS. 

Iv'e missed my last 4 dentist appointments due to over scheduling myself. 

Poor teeth. 

So this month, I dedicated to cleansing. 

Not only watching what I put in and on my body, but cleansing my mind as well.

Plants brighten up any space and add that spark of life into a home!

Sad that I've about killed about all of them.

Morning Lavender- Big Bear

Seasons are the best! I mean, who am I to say that...I live in Southern California. However, we are hours away from Big Bear enabling us to satisfy that need for cold weather change.

Or an excuse to throw on our new boots and scarves!


I'm normally rooting for winter to come around. Christmas music blasting, snowball fights and hot cocoa wrapped in blankets and sitting by a fire. 
However this time around, I fell for fall. Hard.
