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 ;-)

XOXO,

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!! 

XOXO,

Weird & Wonderful Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!! 


Weird:
* 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


Wonderful: 
* 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!!

Later Gators,

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!

XOXO,

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 ;-)
