As I sit here currently one day shy of 39 weeks pregnant I have all the worries of being a first time mom. I have a MILLION questions running through my head between labor and delivery and being a mom. When will labor start? How will labor start? Will I know the right time to leave for the hospital? Will I survive the contractions and delivery? What Dr will deliver you? Will you be a boy or girl? Will you be healthy? Will I be healthy? What will recovery be like? What will my mood be like? How will life be different? Will I be a good mom? Will I know what to do? Do I have everything I need? The questions go on and on but the scariest part is all these questions will be answered in just a matter of days. I am beyond excited to be your mom but I am also terrified. My promise to you is I will do my best and I will love you unconditionally, I will learn as you learn and you will always have a support system that loves you.…
Here is what I am loving for winter maternity wear. Now I am 38.5 weeks so I am all about comfort but I also listed a few of my favorites throughout pregnancy! I am all about versatile, cute and affordable. I want to get my moneys worth and purchase items that cane take me through seasons as well as post baby. Where are some of you favorite places to shop for cute, affordable maternity clothes?
From day one of finding out I was expecting I couldn’t wait to start taking pictures to document the growth of my baby bump. I had no idea if I wanted a “theme” or how to do it, I feel like today with social media and Pinterest there is just so much pressure to be creative. I decided it could be fun to document setting up the nursery so what better way then to combine the two. I started taking pictures at 18 weeks when you could really see a bump but of course we had not started the baby’s room yet. We had the crib set up in another room from our “pregnancy announcement” photo so I just used that to start. When I was at about 22 weeks we started the nursery and my vision of taking maternity pictures as the nursery came together really started to blossom. With one the nursery done and one officially picture to go I am so excited to share my bump date pictures!…

Before Justin and I found out we were pregnant we knew we wanted to keep the gender of our baby a surprise. I thought this may be difficult to design the perfect nursery but since my style is simple and neutral it came together pretty easily. There were definetly some pieces I couldn’t add because they trended more boy or girl but I am excited for Baby H to arrive to officially finish their room with some art work!
We all love a good holiday tablescape and mine is full of affordable target finds! I am starting to mix in more metal tones to our home and these brass flatware gave the table just the look I was going for. I also asked for some fresh greens from my neighbor as they put up their real tree. I love having the best of both worlds. We have the smell of real pine through out our house but without the hassle.
Anyway this tablescape is simple yet functional which is pretty much my life motto. Shop everything I added to our table below 🙂
