9 months pregnant, sup.

How far along are you? I am 39 weeks. so so crazy.

Favorite part of pregnancy? I would have to say my favorite part is really just the feeling of having a little soul inside of me that I'm already bonding with. it's really so magical & hard to desribe.

Least favorite part? one word, heartburn.

Did you get morning sickness? YES! the whole first trimester and the beginning of the second. it was awful but my pregnancy since then has been pretty easy and uneventful so I guess I can't complain.

Have you been reading any pregnancy or parenting books? I have about 27(not really, but close ha!) pregnancy apps on my phone & they each have a little daily article or tip that I read first thing when I wake up. i've also become really into pregnancy podcasts(yes, that's a thing) and listen to those all the time. My favorites are The Longest Shortest Time & Pregtastic.

Do you have stretch marks? No, thank goodness. My mom didn't get any either so I think its just lucky genetics because I haven't really been using any lotions or creams like I should be. I am however starting to notice some varicose veins which in my opinion are worse!

How did you break the news to your husband? This is kind of embarrassing....I sent him a picture of my test through nothing other than Snapchat! lol I will elaborate on this story another time.

Overall Nate & I are just so excited to meet our baby boy who we already love so so much. it's weird being this close to the end and trying to picture what his little face will look like, how the delivery will go, and what it will be like to be a mom. so much unknown and SO many emotions.

baby wood

I can't even begin to explain how excited I am! I can't wait to meet our lil dude in November. I just passed the half way point & I'm feeling pretty good (grateful to be done with the first trimester morning sickness). I'm just beginning to feel his little kicks, and I'm so obsessed. It seriously might be my favorite thing ever. 
    Its so strange/amazing that I have a tiny human growing inside me and it's not lost on me how lucky I am that my body is capable of such an incredible thing.

long live the basic plaid shirt

      I have deemed 2015 the year I put my fingers in as many pies as possible.  I have so many projects, plans, goals, and dreams for this year and my future. I have never felt so ambitious but I'm rolling with it. Some days I just want to fast forward and have everything I want to achieve, but I have to remind myself the joy is in the journey. So here's to a new year and the constant refining and improving of our lives!

School Girl Chic

 Jacket: Nordstroms Sweater: F21 Jeans: Joe's Jeans Purse: Kate Spade Shoes: Steve Madden

I love love love that the whole school girl trend is in right now.  Collars under sweaters, plaid and pleated skirts, oxfords... are just a few of my favorite things. It is cold. Taking pictures outside without a heavy coat on is pretty much torture.  I took these down in Provo while visiting my parents. We spent Christmas with Nate's side of the family in Houston, so we celebrated my family's Christmas tonight. I'm so thankful that my family moved out here. It's so nice to have them nearby, and have my mom cook for us so often. She's an incredible cook. I'll have to share some of her recipes on the blog, you will love them.
