Part two: My daughter’s birth story

Part two: My daughter’s birth story

(Continued from part one…) Once we arrived at the hospital, I was wheeled into the maternity ward and immediately brought to the delivery room. I don’t remember things moving so quickly when I went into labor with Michael, but the nurses sure seemed eager to get the ball rolling (and the baby moving) this time around. After changing into one of those stylish and lovely hospital gowns, I made my way to the hospital bed- and to be honest, I was kind of regretting the fact that I scarfed down a big lunch beforehand.  It seemed like a...

Life lately…

Life lately…

  Although my doctor had a hunch that my baby girl might arrive this past weekend, she decided to hibernate in my belly for a bit longer.  I was honestly kind of happy because MT and I were able to go out for dinner on Saturday night to celebrate my birthday (which was yesterday- April Fool’s Day). I had pretty strong contractions all weekend though, and on Sunday morning, I was totally convinced that I’d have her that day.  I even made sure that we brought my hospital bag with us whenever we left the house. When I...

Things I didn’t share Friday (3/28)

(Image source) As of last night, I was all set to do a normal Things I Didn’t Share Friday post today to tell you stuff like how much I loved Frozen (Kristen Bell is adorable even when she’s animated), how Michael busted a move in GAP the other day to James Brown (wish I caught it on video), that I’m newly obsessed with the soft pretzels sold at the convenience store down the street, and that I am really looking forward to an early birthday dinner with MT tomorrow night. However, I wasn’t prepared (until this morning)...

Style tips for looking your very best during pregnancy

Style tips for looking your very best during pregnancy

(Please note: While I did receive some clothing from Eve of Eden, all opinions stated below are my own. I was not paid to write this post.)   When I was pregnant with Michael, I felt as though I lost my own sense of style.  While I wasn’t exactly wearing tents and garbage bags, it just seemed like my maternity clothes weren’t “me”, and I was absolutely dying to get back into my regular clothes. By the way, why do maternity clothes come in such weird colors and patterns?  I swear that I actually found a skirt in...

Things I didn’t share Friday (2/28)

  1.  The reality that tomorrow is the 1st of March, and I’ll be delivering another baby in roughly 5 weeks is starting to hit me.  On one hand, I feel like I’ve been pregnant for two solid years, and on the other, I cannot believe how fast this second pregnancy is going!  I still have a lot of things to do to prepare, but I am trying not to freak out (at least not too much anyway). 2.  Even though I am practically BFFs with Jessica Robertson, MT and I agreed that it was finally time to drop Duck Dynasty from our DVR...

Things I didn’t share Friday (2/7)

Things I didn’t share Friday (2/7)

  1. When MT and I went on our date last weekend, he ordered ahi tuna.  It came with pretty typical sides, such as cucumber salad, wasabi, soy sauce, and pickled ginger.  MT never eats the ginger, and I’ve noticed that a lot of other people do the same.  Am I the only one who absolutely loves that stuff?  I need to buy myself a jar of it soon- or make it on my own! 2. Remember when I told you that my memory has been horrible lately?  Well, my newest issue is dropping things- such as a glass storage container filled with...
