    Maternity Pictures 

    Pregnancy is a miraculous and amazing thing. Through months of morning sickness, aches and pains along the way, and a painful finale that is delivery- God willing- life begins in a new little person.  Photo Credit : Wild and Grace Photography  I talk all about the amazing Cayla, owner of Wild and Grace photography, towards the end of this post so be sure to read all the way through.  This is my third time around in this pregnancy journey. Each time my morning sickness has gotten worse, but my understanding of how lucky I am to be enduring it in the first place has grown.  Pregnancy is fragile. As fragile…

    I am so excited to do my maternity photos in about a week. I have been looking at pictures on Pinterest and planning my outfits.

    Old Navy 

    The Old Navy 30% off sale ends today! I did a quick try on of some of my fall favorites. These are all pieces that are not maternity but still work.  This jacket comes in eight colors! They are so cute, and each color is so good it’s hard to choose! This is the Creme Caramel. Excuse my hot mess hair I couldn’t get it to chill out as I tried stuff on.  This dress will look great not pregnant too. I do like having pieces that function as both. Dresses that don’t define your waist like a shift dress are great to try while pregnant.  I didn’t have a…

Now in the third pregnancy, I have some ability to…

    Resort Wear

    I think it’s totally safe to say I love stripes, black and white, and functional this summer.  Bathing suits and Momming can be a tricky collaboration. The little angels that made my boobs hang to my belly button also like to wiggle, squirm, and run causing me to actually have to move while wearing a bathing suit. The pre-kid standard for a swimmy was staying on. I didn’t have to move much, in fact, less coverage meant less tan lines.  Now-a-days us Moms have a different tune to hum. Please don’t let my saggy, bean bag boob slide out from inside my bathing suit.   These suits, so far, seem…
