Fashion Friday Casual Chic

A little update for you.
I'm finally feeling better in this pregnancy which is such a huge relief. Now I can really enjoy it. This little man is still kicking away all day long practically. He's strong too! It feels like he's drumming some beats in there. He is about a pound and a  half now as I am 24 weeks/ 6 months now. And he's good and healthy and looking good in his ultrasound. He even gave us a thumbs up which we did get a picture of. So now all that's left is picking out the perfect car seat, the perfect stroller, and the fuzziest little blankets for my little man. It has been hard finding cute clothes for boys.
Anyone have suggestions ? I'd love to hear about some unknown places that I haven't tried yet. It does feel like I'm starting over since it's been so long. But also because it's a boy and I'm so used to girlie stuff.

Mommy: How do you know?

Riley: Because I growed mine 

Mommy: What movie do you want to rent? 

Riley:Can we see if there's something appropriate for me?

Mommy: Ow 

Riley: What's wrong? 

Mommy: I just poked my face with the straw 

Riley: I do the same thing sometimes 

Riley: Are you going to be a grandma?

Mommy: Ugh .,..only if you make me one

Thing I'm Loving

This last week was the first full week of Ri's new schedule. 
I'm getting used to her being gone all day. It can get kinda lonely though. So now it's time for cleaning/nesting and projects to be done.

She also started her dance/gymnastics class this week. She was soo excited and so cute too!

Another big deal this week! I finally made my first purchase ever at an H&M!! I know isn't that nuts. I've never really spent time in the store before. I was on a mission for decent maternity jeans because it's getting cold really fast here in New England. I needed to get prepared. There's rumor that we are in for a bad winter too! Yikes!! We went to the biggest one near us. Ri of course fell in love with the store! It's now her absolute favorite! I walked away with a few pieces to continue to get me through this pregnancy. 

Oh and I'm on the cover of renew magazine's latest issue

Until next week....  :)

Fashion Friday

The weeks seem to be going by faster now.  A full time kindergartener with a full schedule is hard to keep up with but we are new at this. I'm sure we will get the hang of it. 
I am 22 weeks and 3 days. This pregnancy is going by really fast. It's funny how you make all these plans pre pregnancy and they don't seem to work out. I was going to journal more. I was going to get caught up on scrapbooking. I was going to take pictures of my belly every week. All those things are great but in reality. This pregnant lady has been tired. Half the time I don't even do my hair let alone my makeup. It just goes to show you that you can plan all you want with a pregnancy but once you are there doing it. It's kinda hard to follow through. You have to adapt and be flexible because your baby is apparently the boss and you are just along for the ride.

Back to school

Last week was Ri's first day of school. Yes I bawled my eyes out day of and night before of course! My little baby started kindergarten and left me to be alone all day. They sure do grow up so fast. It felt like she was going off to college not sure if that's my pregnancy hormones or just being a mom. But those first couple days were torture I must say! How do moms do it all the time. 

She of course was so excited. No issues at all. She's been waiting weeks for the first day. With her frozen backpack and her new school shoes. We even did a back to school fashion show that she totally loved.

Fashion Friday

Wow two outfits in one week I'm on a rolls. This yet another purchase that was well worth it. High waisted elastic shorts for no more than $10 was my favorite and most comfortable thing this summer. I just went up a size and I hope to transition them into fall too!  Have a Happy Weekend everyone!

Constant Craving ....

Well we've hit the halfway mark. That kinda went by fast! I'm at 21 weeks now and not that much has changed. Besides the baby's size I guess. He should be about 3/4 of a pound now and 10 1/2 inches long {about the length of a carrot}.
I've been finding myself getting hungrier too. Craving things like chili cheese fries, fruit, chips mostly. I love chips so don't leave a bag of chips in front of me because I have no self control at this point. Then of course sweets I love any sweets!
I've been doing really well with staying away from all foods that I'm not supposed to eat. 
I don't like to take any chances with my little munchkins. 

It's no secret I'm a high risk pregnancy. With the loss of our first son Elijah and my Thyroid cancer ....and well I guess my asthma too. All of that good stuff makes for an awesome pregnancy! {sarcasm}
Good thing it's all worth it in the end and you get a beautiful precious baby out of the deal.

I got a bunch of bodycon dresses for the summer and it was one of the best purchases. This dress was only $10 and they are really stretchy so I can easily transition them into Fall/Winter for the rest of my pregnancy.
