37 Weeks Pregnant

Hey Peeps! It's crunch time right about now.  I can't believe my due date is in 2 weeks and 3 days. Ahhhhhh, I just wish he would come out already ;-) Anyway, it's time for another prego update. 

How Far Along? 37 weeks and 4 days.

Total Weight Gain/Measurements: I'm measuring about 46.5 around my belly button. 

Maternity Clothes: How about I just bought a maternity coat!! Although I will probably only get a good 2 weeks out of it, I'm okay with that fact that I no longer have to walk around with the too small jacket and scarf look. Not cute or effective! 

Stretch Marks: Ugh, unfortunately they showed up a couple weeks ago. It's only like 6 of them but it still makes me sad...not happy about that :-( 

Sleep: Uncomfortable but at least I'm still getting it.

Best Moment This Week: We had our "BabyMoon" in Nashville this past weekend...it was pretty awesome!! 

Miss Anything? Generally everything, but my nose is currently at the top of the list. Does anybody know what causes it to get so big??

Movement: All the time...poor thing has got to be getting cramped up in there. 

Food Cravings: Umm orange juice which I've NEVER been a fan of so that's kind of strange. 

Symptoms: I can't get comfortable, ever. I have some sort of cold situation that I can't get rid of because I can't take any good medicine for it. Swelling in my fingers, ankles and toes (I've even stopped wearing my wedding ring O_o) Oh and my husband told me last night that I waddle like a penguin...cute right?!

Labor Signs: Not a single thing!! I'm getting nervous about that too. I sure hope he doesn't decide to stay in longer. 

Looking Forward To: Birthing this baby, like yesterday!!!!!

Be sure to check out the video for more info ;-)

Sunday Stripes

Happy Monday!! Can you believe Christmas will be here next week?? I cannot. I can't even believe that my little one will be here shortly there after (hopefully). Where does the time go?? Anyway, this look is from a Sunday, probably a whole month ago though...my belly is much bigger now ;-) 

Sweater : Gap ~ Slacks : Motherhood Maternity ~ Boots : Ross

Enjoy your Monday!! See you back Wednesday for a Maternity Update!

Manicure Monday - Cha Ching

It's a Monday and you know what that means, time for another No-Chip Manicure. Last Friday my company had our annual Christmas party so I decided to be a little festive with my nails. Christmas time calls for bright red right?! This was the first time I used this shade of Gem Crush and I must say that I was fan.

Sally Hansen 02 Cha-Ching

Sally Hansen 01 Beaming 

Although the plan was to use it for my full manicure, I decided that the accent nail was a better look for the evening. Maybe I'll try it that way next time. What do you think? Do you have a go to holiday color for your nails? If so, I'd love to hear about it. 

Enjoy your day!

Our Story

Hey there, Happy Friday!! I've been looking forward to this day for what seems like forever, lol. I live for the weekends (if you couldn't already tell). Plus our Company Christmas Party is tonight so that should be fun ;-)

So here's the thing, my husband & I make weekly vlogs on my YouTube channel (if you've been a reader for awhile you already knew that). We get lots of questions about everything so last year we decided to start something called "Couch Conversations" to address our FAQs.

How about it has taken us a whole year to do our first one...hot mess! We decided to start with the beginning and let everyone know how we made it to the Happiest Day of Our Lives. So if you're interested, check it out.

Enjoy your weekend ;-)

Manicure Monday - Haze of Love

Hey there now, Happy Monday!! It's about that time for a new No-Chip Manicure. I know it's been a minute but lately I've been over my nail polish collection. Do you ever go through that? I finally decided to check out CVS to see what I could find and fortunately I left with two new colors! Here's the first one...

Wet n Wild 215B Haze of Love

I wasn't sure how the color would come out but I was pleasantly surprised. The application was very smooth and the two coats gave me just the look I was going for. Oh and did I mention it was only $2...can we say completely sold?!

What do you think? Have you ever used the Wet n Wild Megalast line before? If so, let me know what you thought about it. 

Later Gators,

33 Weeks Pregnant

Happy Wednesday!! I'm so ready to get this holiday vacation started and eat me some good turkey ;-) We'll be getting on the road to Alabama in no time, YAY! Anyway, it's about that time for another pregnancy update so here goes...

How Far Along? 33 weeks and 5 days.

Total Weight Gain/Measurements: Still not ready to disclose this info but I am measuring at 44.5 around my belly button. 

Maternity Clothes: Every single time I say I'm done buying maternity wear, I buy something else. Like the other weekend I went a little crazy in Old Navy but seeing as how I really don't have that much longer, I think it's time to stop...for real, for real. 

Stretch Marks: Still nothing, fingers crossed!

Sleep: It's not the most comfortable, but I'm still able to sleep through the night.  

Best Moment This Week: Hearing the little one's heartbeat at our appointment ;-)

Miss Anything? Always but these days it's sleeping on my stomach. 

Movement: Very much so, he sometimes gets going and my belly takes on all kinds of shapes. It's pretty awesome! 

Food Cravings: A couple weeks ago it was plantains, now I think it's back to pizza.

Symptoms: Out of breath still, stuffy nose, finding it hard to get up/roll over/sit up without assistance.

Labor Signs: Nope!

Looking Forward To: Finishing up the nursery, it's funny how this process is exciting but still kind of stressful at the same time.

Be sure to check out the video for more info and have a wonderful Thanksgiving ;-)

Favorite Fall Maxi

Hello there good people!! Happy Monday and Happy 3 Day Work Week...YAY ;-) If you're not excited about the holiday then I don't know what to tell you. 

Maxi : Old Navy Maternity ~ Sandals : Steve Madden

This look is from about a month ago. I fell in love with this dress as soon as I tried it on but could never figure out how to wear it because it just didn't look right with boots. So I waited until one of those fluke weekends where the weather was just warm enough for me to break out the sandals again. Once it finally came, I went for it and I'm oh so glad I did because this look came together perfectly! What do you think? 

Have a fantastic Monday!!

Weird & Wonderful Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!! 

* The recliner that I ordered vs the recliner that showed up at my house...not a good look.  
* Starting to feel stressed the closer I get to the due date. Still need to clean my house to get it ready for guests, gotta finish the nursery decor, need to pack a hospital bag, etc etc etc. So much to do, so little time!!!
* 3rd trimester symptoms coming back - I can feel my energy slipping away from me daily. 
* Giving away things that I never thought I would part ways with. Not sure what has come over me but I just want to get rid of all my junk and start over. No more clutter!! 

Cardigan : Forever 21 ~ Tank : H&M ~ Jeans : Motherhood Maternity ~ Boots : ShoeDazzle

* This Friday I'll be 33 weeks!!! Where did the time go??
* Having all nursery furniture (minus the new recliner) assembled & ready for decoration is exciting.
* Baby Shower #2 last week at the office was a success. We had tons of fun and my little man got even more gifts. He's so blessed already ;-)
* 3 day work week coming up...YAY!! We're spending Thanksgiving with the hubby's family in Alabama and I'm actually pretty excited about it. It's been months since we last seen them.
* Black Friday - oh yes, it's going down!!

So tell me everything that's been going on in your world these days. Can't wait to hear about it!!

Manicure Monday - Glitz Gal

Hello there, Happy Monday!! I'm back with another Manicure Monday. I took a break and actually wore my bare nails for a couple weeks during the last month which explains the absence of these posts. Last night I finally decided to get my life together and do a No-Chip Manicure to show off. 

Wet N' Wild 237C Gray's Anatomy 

Sally Hansen 08 Glitz Gal Gem Crush

The original plan was to just use the top color but after 3 coats and a still very sheer color, I decided to spice it up with some sparkle. Last year I created a similar look using different polish brands - here. I've also used this gem crush before with a blue base months ago - here

Out of the three combinations, this one is the winner (at least in my eyes). What do you think? 

Enjoy your day!

Hot Mama Style

Happy Friday!! Aren't you glad it's time for the weekend? I am ;-) We've been getting nursery furniture delivered all week so we have plenty to keep us busy. This look is from my baby shower two weekends ago. 

Pumps : Target

The color and fit of this dress was perfect...super impressed with Target Maternity!! I have to admit that I felt pretty amazing. Getting dolled up to spend time with my closest family and friends was so much fun!! We had a wonderful time. If you'd like to see the highlights from my big day, check out the video below. 

Have a fantastic weekend and I'll see you back Monday for a new manicure ;-)

Fall Favorite

Well hello there! This past week has been extremely busy with getting the nursery together, traveling, having my baby shower (which turned out perfect - I'll be sharing more later) and all that jazz. I'm back now though...I think. It's amazing how one week feels like an eternity in blogger land. At any rate, this will be a quick post to show off my favorite part of my not so favorite season...BOOTS!!! It's finally time to break these puppies out and I couldn't be happier. 

Top : Forever 21 ~ Leggings : Ross

Cardigan : Target ~ Boots : Bakers

I love these boots so much that I also own them in black. No surprise there right?! For whatever reason, I have developed a special relationship with boots...ankle, calf, knee or thigh high. I love them all. Oh and don't let them have a wedge heel, I'm completely sold! In my opinion they are the best accessory you can have for the colder months. Don't you agree?

What are your favorite fall items?? Do tell! 

Until Next Time,

28 Week Pregnancy Update

Hey Friends!! It's been a minute but I'm back with another pregnancy update, YAY! I decided to blog & vlog this time around so let me know what you think ;-)

How Far Along? 28 weeks and 4 days. I've officially made it to the 3rd trimester...woo-hoo!! Time is passing by so quickly, I can't believe it. 

Total Weight Gain/Measurements: Yeah let's just say more than enough, lol. Although, I did measure around my belly button sometime last week and it was about 44 inches! 

Maternity Clothes: Of course! I just went shopping last week for more dress pants and shirts. I find that getting dressed for church is becoming quite difficult. Since it's fall, maxi dresses aren't cutting it.

Stretch Marks: No, thank God. Let's hope it stays that way.

Sleep: It's not the best but I guess it could be worse. I have a huge body pillow that helps. 

Best Moment This Week: Seeing the nursery come together. Babe is almost finished with the painting! 

Miss Anything? Let's see...wine, dirty martinis, my clothes and heels :-(

Movement: Oh yes, this baby is active these days. It's still sporadic but I notice it the most after I eat. He did move after hearing his grandmommy talk to him on speaker phone last night...that was pretty special!! 

Food Cravings: Hmm, not so much. Well here lately I've been ordering sweet tea when we go out to eat. I normally get water so that's pretty random. 

Symptoms: Out of breath still, stuffy nose, finding it hard to get up/roll over/sit up without assistance.

Labor Signs: Not yet!

Looking Forward To: Going home for my baby shower this weekend, I can't wait!! 

Be sure to check out the video for more details ;-)
