Holy nine months!

Dress: ASOS Maternity {similar here and here}, Duster: Stein Mart{love this one},
Booties: Sole Society {similar here}, Bag: Marc Jacobs {similar here}, Lips: MAC-Viva Glam I,
Necklace: Stella Rae, c/o; White Turquoise Bracelet: Harper Designs, c/o 

Well that flew by, huh?
I cannot believe we are already at nine months...crazy!
The nursery is still not completely pulled together but thankfully
my mom is coming up this weekend so we should 
{emphasis on should} get that knocked out.

My wardrobe is slowly starting to dwindle the bigger this belly gets.
Since I'm refusing to buy any more maternity clothes with such little time left in my pregnancy,
jewelry has pretty much been my saving grace in changing up looks.
I literally swooned when I received these stone bangles from Harper Designs.
Each bracelet is handmade and such a gorgeous statement piece!
So excited about soon having these on my arm with my little boy in my arms:)

Have a great weekend!! xo

Loving and loathing.

Headband: Total Betty Society, c/o; Tortoise Watch: Total Betty Society, c/o
Top: PB&J Boutique, c/o; Vest: similar here; Denim: Gap Maternity; Booties: similar here;
Tassel Necklace: Very Jane {love this one}; Monogram Necklace: Max&Cleo {similar here-
and on sale for a steal!...also dying for this block monogram in tortoise}; Clutch:F21

Things I'm loving this week...
~Cruising through 35 weeks {we're getting pretty good at this, baby boy},
~Cooking up a birth plan--not that I really have one at this point or will ever likely have one...
but the idea that I can talk about one at this point is pretty dang exciting,
~Baby smell--I was going through hand-me-downs from my big sister who has two littles of her own...
ohhh that glorious scent would make any woman's ovaries dance a jig,
~Rainbow sherbet and Lucky Charms--who knew pregnancy would bring out my inner 10 yr old??
~These awesome accessories from Total Betty Society--we saw headbands
all over the runway for spring so I knew I'd be wanting to throw a couple into the mix
when the warmer months rolled around, and you can never go wrong
 with a large faced, tortoise watch. Love it!
**Right now you can use promo code "LEISURE" to receive 25% off your TBS purchase!**

Things I could do without...
~Swelling--I was hoping beyond all hopes I'd be one of those magical, lucky ladies whose limbs didn't swell up like a balloon but nah, I love it when only two pairs of shoes I currently own actually fit:/
~Carpal tunnel--bump you carpal tunnel, bump you. The other morning it took me 30 minutes solid
to wake up my left hand...and let me just add that beating your
 hand on the bathroom sink isn't the best method even though it seemed like a bright idea at the time.
~Sleep--it's overrated, right? Right???

The small prices of growing a human;)
We're ready to get you here, our little bitty.

Wednesday steals.

Today's picks are all about basics...and jewelry of course;)
Have a wonderful Wednesday, friends!

Also as promised, here's an update of how our baby boy is cooking:)

How far along: 33 weeks 

Baby is the size of: a pineapple

Maternity clothes: 
That or a paper bag will do at this point.

Okay, here lately.

Best moment of the week:
Getting our contractions stopped that I told you about here
and hearing a good strong heartbeat.

Miss anything: 
A very rare steak with a glass of red would be nice:)

Food cravings: 
There was a delicious sherbet punch at one of my showers a couple of weeks ago.
I was craving it so bad I texted one of my friends that hosted for the recipe
and made a glass of it for myself last night.
Living it up while I can!

Anything making you queasy or sick:
Still good.

Have you started to show yet:

Labor signs: False alarm this week but we're going to keep him in there a while longer.

Belly button in or out: We're out y'all.

Wedding rings on or off: 
Woof. Been gone.

Happy or moody most of the time:
This week was a bit of an emotional roller coaster but
we're happy clams now.

Looking forward to:
My second shower this weekend and getting to see my fam!

A little scare.

Dress: ASOS Maternity, Booties: Sole Society, Tortoise Necklace: Stella Rae c/o,
Turquoise Necklace: gifted, Bow Bracelet and Gold Rings: Born Pretty c/o

This week has been quite eventful...
our little prince gave us a bit of a scare yesterday.
Around lunch time I started having what I can best 
describe as "stomach tightness," because how the heck 
would I know what contractions feel like??
I thought maybe I was just being overly cautious, 
but decided to go ahead and give my doctor a call.
After an hour of chugging water, resting, and still no improvement
they wanted me to go ahead and get to the hospital.
Sure enough, we did have some minor contractions going on.
They gave me a shot which did stop them and I'm
not dilated at all so that's great to hear!
Looks like the next few weeks baby and I will be getting plenty of r&r.
We still have another 7 weeks of cooking to do so if you would
say a small prayer that little boy would stay in 
there until the end of March I would greatly appreciate it:)

On a much, much lighter and different note...I was thrilled to receive this bow bracelet 
and ring set from Born Pretty. Their jewelry selection is enormous! Seriously-super big.
What's even better are the prices. Incredibly affordable, you can't beat it!
And to make it even better, they're giving all BOL readers 10% off!
Just use code "EHT10" at checkout.

Before I return to my new home for the next 7 weeks {the living room couch},
I couldn't leave you without sharing my Wednesday picks.
Looks like I'll be doing a lot more of my shopping online the next few weeks!

Have a great Wednesday!
