40 Weeks

Technically, 40 weeks & 4 days.  This little girl is far too cozy in there, so until she makes her grand debut, I'll continue to go about the days the best I know how.  Outfits are getting simpler & far less creative, but not to worry…I've had some amazing new arrivals show up the past few days & cannot wait to fit into them soon!

Date Day

What I wore on our last date day with the Mr.  We went baby shopping, errand running, enjoyed a lengthy lunch at one of our favourites, & finished the day off snuggled on the couch watching football. Pure bliss.  However, baby girl is now 2 days overdue & I am running out of patience to meet her...

Photo Friday: Mat Leave

My first week of maternity leave, summed up in a few photos.  As life is about to get pretty hectic (in the best of ways), I've been soaking up all the 'me time' I can get…from making breakfast every morning to lounging in my pjs all day long.  I must confess, it has gotten a little boring as the week went on.  I'm ready for you, little miss...

I'm going to miss this baby bump of mine...
Freezer Meal prep is complete
Re-organized my closet, starting with these cozy sweaters (both F21)
PJ's, all day...
Homemade banana nut muffins & coffee
A quick trip to Home Sense resulted in last minute additions to the nursery...
More pjs (my outfit of the day)
The Dad-to-be picked these out for little miss at Carter's last weekend...
My first attempt at waffles from scratch...
Spent yesterday getting a mani/pedi before baby girl arrives...

Happy Weekend!

Surviving Winter

Surviving winter, one layer at a time.  I'm not a huge fan of winter boots (who really is though?!), but these have been a lifesaver.  I never have to worry about slipping, they're lightweight, waterproof, & warm.  Perfect for my light list of errands on my first week of mat leave...

Fringe, With Benefits

Scored this sweater from my friend's boutique in early December.  I've been wearing it non-stop, it's incredibly cozy & has just the right amount of color for this mama-to-be.  It also just so happens to match my favorite boots perfectly…win, win, win!

Ruffle Up

Pink & neutrals, which is basically all I've been wearing the past few weeks.   This tunic is the perfect piece for winter & it's made of this thin, but extremely warm material.  I'm currently cuddled up on the couch with both dogs enjoying my first official day of mat leave...

Photo Friday: Leftovers

Leftovers from my work laptop on my last day of work before mat leave.  It's definitely a surreal feeling, almost identical to the day before I made the big move to Canada six years ago.  So far, it's looking like I'm going to get some much needed time to myself before little miss makes her big arrival...

A little bit of snow & a much smaller bump...
Free People 'Ruffle Up Tunic' that I ordered over the phone & ended up with the last one before restock
Maternity jeans (Target) are a godsend, especially when paired with these sparkly earrings (F21)
Buffalo Wild Wings take-out for football Sunday awhile back...
Iowa pride for the best season of college football I've ever seen them complete...
These sunnies...I am obsessed! Straight from The Gypsy's Wanderlust Boutique
Fringe-knit Cardigan I can't get enough of (Also from The Gypsy's Wanderlust)
These sparkly beauties, scored on mega sale (Zara)

Happy Weekend!

Drop it Low

In the spirit of my weekly OB appointment later this evening, I thought I'd share my outfit from last week's appointment.  The appointment where we learned little miss has officially dropped into place & could join us at any moment.  Hoping for some progress tonight, followed by a pizza date with my mother-in-law...

Not a Moment Too Soon...

This is normally my favorite season to style for the blog, with endless layering possibilities & my slowly expanding coat collection, I can create so many different combos.  This year, however, is a different story.  Until month 9, all was perfect...everything fit with optimal coverage and ease.  This is no longer the case haha, I'm left with belly-bearing shirts & pants I can hardly wiggle into.  After this week, I'm all set to welcome little miss into the world & slowly get back to my wardrobe...
