maternity top: target, cardigan: target, leggings: c/o simple addiction,
36 weeks

Watching: The Bachelor, the question might be who isn't, but all I've got to say is I'm excited to spend my Tuesday mornings with my little girl watching The Bachelor. Haha! Great mother daughter quality time that's for sure. 

Crocheting: Starting some baby shoes/booties. I can't believe I forgot to make them before now. Better get to it before this girl gets here. 

Anticipating: Her birthday. My-oh-my how time sure has flown by. I feel like she could show up any day now... and she really can. I feel like I'm mentally prepared for her, just maybe not physically prepared  -blame it on laundry

Listening to: Well, last week I was still listening to Christmas music and yesterday when I was getting ready for our maternity pictures I was listening to Taylor Swift's new cd. 

Thinking about: When this baby will be here. Is Brandon going to be taking a test? Will he be done with his presentation? Will I be woken up? Sometimes I wish I had a magic eight ball that would tell me the answer. 

Feeling thankful: For such a healthy pregnancy. For all the non-nausea days and the few food aversions. 

Wanting: Chocolate, this whole pregnancy I've wanted chocolate every day.  Also, recently I've been craving apples -it's a first- it's probably a good thing to crave healthy foods, and it actually makes me feel a bit better about my snack choices.

Enjoying:  Time by myself. I'm soaking it all in and enjoying every bit of it. 

Wondering: What she is going to look like, and will she be bald? It would be okay if she was because I've got loads of bows waiting for her. (:

Smelling: Tangelos. In our backyard we have a lemon tree, a grapefruit tree, and a tangelo tree. So this morning to beef up on some good ole vitamin c I juiced 12 tangelos and our house smells so wonderful! 

Wearing: Leggings, long shirt and a long cardigan. I can't be in anything but leggings, I swear if I wear pants it feels like it's cutting off my circulation and it's just so uncomfortable. I guess it's leggings for the next several months -I don't mind that's for sure. (These are some of my favorites if you are wondering - 1  2  3)

Following: Any giveaway that has anything to do with baby stuff. I'm starting to break the bank with all the accessories I'm purchasing for this little one, and so I'm really crossing my fingers that I will win some of these giveaways! 

Feeling: SO many emotions come up when you are waiting for a little one to get here. I'm anxious, excited, nervous, and worried all in the same moment. I cannot wait to meet this little one that has been growing in my belly for the past  months. Pregnancy is such an amazing experience, the whole thing is so amazing.  A new life is about to begin and I have full responsibility to keep her strong, healthy, and to teach her all that I know. What a huge responsibility, but really I'm so excited to meet her!


If you're looking for really comfortable fleece leggings, or just some really cute comfortable patterned ones head here. Like I said, I'm practically living in these leggings and they are so warm and comfortable. I purchased the mocha, black and gray colored ones, the best kind of leggings I've had!
