My Distaste for Maternity Clothes + 20 Week Update

Hey girls! Hope your week has gotten off to a great start! So I have a small beef to gripe about...maternity clothes. I hate them. Other than a couple of casual pieces from Old Navy, I haven't bought many maternity clothes. A friend told me to check out Motherhood Maternity, which I have. Still not that impressed. Jessica Simpson has some cute pieces there but I can't justify paying $60 for one flippin top! I just can't. Still trying my darndest to make my pre-pregnancy c… Read more

Annual Girls' Weekend

Happy Monday, y'all! How was your weekend? Mine was fab & TONS of fun! Last year, me and 3 of my girlfriends (Beth, Vanja & Darragh) decided to meet in Nashville for a girls' weekend getaway. We had so much fun that we decided to make it an annual affair.  Because I'm expecting and me and hubby just bought our first home, I convinced the ladies to travel to Texas for this year's weekend trip. We eventually settled on Austin. Beth and I are here in Dallas, Darr… Read more

We're having a...?

I always knew that I wanted to have a gender reveal party if/when I got pregnant with my first baby. Between Pinterest and Etsy, there are SO many great reveal party theme ideas out many. We decided to have the party at my parents' house since we're sort of in transition . Because of that, I knew I didn't want to have a big party with lots of people...just something small and simple with family. I found the cutest Trucks or Tiaras reveal invitation on Etsy and … Read more

Trying to gear up for the not-so-fun stuff...coughing up lots of money, inspection, closing, etc, etc. But we're excited to get in and get settled. Yay! More to come on that. And maybe even some b… Read more

Project 52 | Week 14: What is a friend?

What is a friend?  According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a friend is one attached to another by affection or esteem. I was encouraged this week by David and Jonathan's affection and esteem for one other in 1 Samuel. Two very important aspects of friendship stood out to me while reading about David and Jonathan: 1. A friend is someone who will give you the shirt off their back when you need it. Then Jonathan made a covenant with David, because he loved him as his own soul. A… Read more

Bold Stripes

Eeeeeek! My first style/fashion post in nearly 2 months! Too bad I was in a rush and had to take the pics inside. So sorry for the bad picture quality, gals. Hopefully you get the idea. :) Any hoo, I was super excited when eShakti contacted me back in December to sample one of their items. eShakti is an online store that offers custom ladies apparel. By custom, I mean that you can actually enter your measurements and they customize the size/fit of the item to perfectly fit your body.… Read more

An Announcement

Hello darlings! It's been toooo long since I last posted.  Things have been a tad hectic for me lately. Lots going on. Let me start with the exciting stuff...WE'RE EXPECTING! Yay! As of yesterday, I'm 16 weeks preggers.  I'm pretty "regular" so I knew the day I missed my cycle (in January) that something was up. Hubby convinced me to take a pregnancy test a couple days after I missed it and sure enough...POSITIVE! The first trimester was ROUGH, y'all. I&… Read more
