Bumpdate // 20 Weeks


How far along: 20 weeks...halfway mark! He's the size of a banana. I love getting the email updates from Baby Center with the fruit size he is each week, I think it's so cute!
Maternity Clothes? Yes and no. I have a pair of Gap maternity jeans that I've been wearing because they are sooo comfortable. I can still fit into my regular jeans (with help from the hair-tie trick and tummy tube) and pretty much all my tops still fit. I'm lucky that most my sweaters and tee's are already over-sized. Bra's on the other hand...holyyyyy. I need go buy a larger size AGAIN!
Cravings? Clementines....it doesn't take me long to get through a bag of Cuties. And cinnamon raisin bagels with strawberry cream cheese. I seriously cannot get enough!
Exercise? Does walking to and from work count? I need to get back on the treadmill ASAP! I worked out a couple weekends ago and felt so sick after, it was the opposite of refreshing. I want to start going to the gym in the AM but laying in bed always seems like the better option at the time. Any one else on the work out struggle bus??
Baby movement? I can feel him moving around but it just feels like little bubbles. I'm excited to start feeling bigger kicks! One night I shot out of bed because I thought I felt two huge kicks, but I'm pretty sure I was just dreaming!
Sleep? Sleep was great until this last week. Now its lots of tossing and turning, can't get comfortable and up at 5am. I have a body pillow on it's way in the mail, hopefully that helps!
Missing anything? A glass of wine (or two) after work! 
Milestones: Halfway there! We have our 20 week ultrasound on Monday...I cannot wait to see how big he's got!
Best moment this week: Feeling him move around and getting lots of baby gear in the mail! Our apartment is starting to get crowded. We are moving at the end of April into a two-bedroom so right now we don't have much extra space. Boxes are starting to stack up and line the walls. I'm anxious to move and get the nursery set up!
Feeling: Excited and a little overwhelmed. I hopped on Buy Buy Baby to start a gift registry and got MAJOR anxiety. Nipple cream? Breast pads? 20 different bottle brands? My head was spinning. It made me feel really unprepared, but my aunt re-assured me that all first time moms feel this way so not to worry! Kyle's sister made us a list of all her favorite brands/must-have items which was super helpful!

Valentines Day // Treat Yourself!


Sometimes we get so focused on work or school or taking care of your husband/kids/boyfriend that we forget to take care of ourselves. I think Valentine's day is the perfect time to treat yourself to a little something! It doesn't have to be a big purchase...maybe your favorite lipstick or a candle. I haven't bought myself anything since I found out I'm pregnant so I will definitely be treatin' myself to a little something! xx

Hope you ladies are having a great week! NYC is in the middle of "the blizzard of 2015," and everything is shut down - transportation, roads, businesses...it's crazy. We are just hoping our electricity does not get knocked out - fingers crossed! (Update: I wrote this last night in case our power went out, and it ended up not being as bad as expected, thankfully!) Here is a look I wore over the weekend - I'm still rocking my non-maternity jeans at 34 weeks - ONLY because of the wonderful thing that is the 'tummy tube.' It's pretty great, and turns your regular pants into maternity jeans, you just have to make sure your top is long enough to cover everything. ;) 
I'm definitely over winter at this point, and ready for some warmer temps...it's hard to be outside for more than 10 minutes without freezing my buns off! I miss living in California where every day is 70 and sunny - lucky YOU if you live somewhere like that! Have a great day loves! xx

Sneaker Style: Get the Look

coat | jeans | sneakers

 These are outfits I could live in all day, everyday. I love the effortless look sneakers give an outfit. I'm sure I will be living in my sneaks once the baby arrives! Sorry for the short note, off to the doctor! xx

Our Favorites:


Resort 2015



I'm dreaming of a vacation on the beach somewhere tropical (so over the cold weather). However, with a newborn on the way, and my "travel cut off date" creeping up on me, that's not going to happen. We had a trip to Hawaii planned for March, but had to cancel due to the timing - I'd rather not risk going into labor on a 10+ hour flight HA! Just because I'm not going on vacay doesn't mean I'm not lusting after everything resort right now. Flowy dresses, white lace, and tropical prints are calling my name, but I'll have to wait a good 5 months before breaking them out. Shop my favorites below:
