Holiday inspiration and 30 week bump date

Hey babes! Happy Thursday!!

I wanted to share this pretty dress and belt with y’all today in hopes it may inspire something fun and fabulous for your upcoming holiday parties. You can’t go wrong with a LBD in my opinion and this one is under $25. I also wanted to update you on baby girl’s progress. I can’t believe I’m 30 weeks pregnant. For some of y’all it may seem like I’ve been pregnant forever, but for me it feels like its flown by. Probably because we’re busier this go round with a four year old constantly on the go. I wanted to also share some of the products I’ve been using and loving this pregnancy.

It’s becoming real that we’ll get to meet our sweet little one in 10 weeks or less. Which also means I better get going on the nursery. I’ve heard the more children you have the less on top of things you are. I am definitely that mom lately. I’ve been dragging my feet on getting things together in her room but know how I want things to look. So thats a plus, right? It’s just getting it done in a timely manner, and the holidays don’t help my procrastinating mindset. I do have a couple pieces of furniture being delivered next week though and can’t wait to see them bring the room together. It will get there, maybe slowly but surely.  So excited to share more once we get it done. 

I can say I feel pretty good overall and honestly can’t really complain about much, besides I stay up all hours of the night and sleep best if I can get a nap in during the day. I’ve been using this pregnancy pillow and used it when I was pregnant with Corbin. Love it! 

I’ve also been using Bio oil and Kopari Coconut oil linked here to protect and prevent stretch marks and keep my skin hydrated. I also love this Kopari Coconut Body Milk as well.

I used One a Day Prenatal Vitamins with Corbin but found that I was so exhausted during the start of this pregnancy that I figured I would switch it up. I’ve been using Rainbow Light one a day prenatal duo and have loved them so far. You can see which ones I use here. They will be great for post pregnancy as well and have specific trimester prenatal vitamins too if you choose to go that route. 🙂

 I eat literally everything; give me all the sweets and Chick Fil A. Still on that kick and going strong. We went to Dallas last week and I ate my body weight in nuggets, fries and a fruit cup on the drive. Wasn’t at all mad about it either but you should have seen the look on my moms face. Haha, she was a little surprised at my appetite. I’ve been snacking on pineapple lately as well and if you haven’t tried the Chick Fil A fruit cup, you totally should. I always ask them for strawberries, oranges, and blueberries and have them leave out the apples. I don’t know why but I’m not fan for whatever reason. I may have a little work to do once little Miss gets here, but until further notice, I’ve just been enjoying it! Hey, thats what Spanx are for, amIright?! Here they are if you want to check them out!

We also have a name, y’all!! Disclaimer: I won’t be sharing until she arrives but am so happy to have finally decided (and agreed) on a name. I had a name I LOVED but Conrad wasn’t a fan so we compromised a little. She’s like her own little person now and it makes it even sweeter! I’ve monogrammed a few things on Etsy already and will also share them once she is here.

I haven’t left food at a drive up window again, but I did show up to my ultrasound appointment a day early today. Anyone else done anything like that? I sometimes feel like I’ve completely lost my mind. Thankfully it was too early and not too late. I love getting to see our girl and tomorrow we get to see her sweet little face and that makes me so excited! Corbin gets to join me and so I know he will be happy to see her too. He recently got a little baby doll and has been feeding and caring for “Kinley” as practice for when his baby sister arrives and although Conrad may not agree, I think it’s the most precious thing. I seriously cannot wait to see him with her. He will be amazing and will have a little bestie for life! Every day we get closer the more excited we all become to meet her. I love when Conrad talks to her and seeing him with her may be my most anticipated moment next to Corbin. She is going to have her daddy wrapped around her finger and if he’s anything with her like he is with Corbin, it will melt my heart into a puddle. He’s such an amazing daddy and our kids are so blessed that he is theirs. 

I’ll continue to update you as we get closer to her arrival and will be revealing her nursery as soon as its complete with many links in case you’re interested. I love home decor and coming up with ideas, so I think it will turn out cute and a little different than what I’ve been seeing! Stay tuned. 

I’ve also linked this look for you as well. My LBD is not maternity but works with the bump and is such a great option to dress up or down. My jacket is old but I’ve linked one similar for you as well! 

Thank you all for reading and I hope you have a lovely rest of your day!!
