23 Weeks


I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving break! I’ve had a tough time getting back into the grind, if we’re being perfectly honest. The time I got to spend in Boise with my family and closest friends was not even close to enough. It never is though, is it? If only there was a way to have everyone you love live no more distant than a 10 minute drive. Sigh… if only. In other news – I’m 23 weeks along this week! Hashtag craycray. These pics were taken in down town Boise where my family and I carried out one of our annual traditions: attending the Festival of Trees. This red plaid coat from Choies seemed perfect for the occasion. Turns out I’ve gained a bit of a major crush on the plaid/tartan trend. What’s your take on it? Are you into it? And I couldn’t resist throwing one…

What to Wear for Thanksgiving Dinner


I gotta be honest – I always feel conflicted on Thanksgiving day. Do I wear something cozy and adorable, orrrrrrrr do I wear my largest pair of sweat pants and an oversized sweater so that I can shamelessly gorge myself whilst still being comfortable? Whichever way you swing, here are some potential Thanksgiving dinner outfits that I thought would be killer – in case you opt for adorable instead of being a sweaty, fatty fat francis (which is the direction I’m leaning toward – let’s be serious). All images sourced from Pinterest. For more outfit goodness, you can follow me on Pinterest here.   Happy Day before Thanksgiving! Husband and I are in Boise for the week and lovin’ every minute of it. Thanks for reading! xoxo

Maxi Skirt in Mexico


Ensenada, Mexico was the place. Husband was the guy (obvi). Baby moon was the mission. Status: Mission Accomplished. Chase and I thought it absolutely necessary to give ourselves some type of relaxing hurrah before our lives changed forever with the addition of a little one to the fam. We also knew it needed to happen before I was so big that waddling or rolling me around were the only options. And yes we’re quickly approaching that point, and yes I am only 5 1/2 months along. Welcome to ‘Hi I’m gonna be the biggest pregnant lady that ever lived’. I’m learning already that I better get used to people asking if I’m having a December baby and then gasping when I tell them I’m due in March, then asking if I’m having twins. Yeah – that happened yesterday. Awesome. (#peopleareinsensitiveidiots #butGodblessem) Anywho, we took a little cruise last week and it…
