Our news xoxo


You may be wondering why I haven't taken as many 'selfies' (thank my Instagram friends for that!) around here, as there have been times where I haven't felt human enough to even get out of bed (let alone taking a photograph of myself) this year, and that's because... Husbie and I are expecting our first child in September!



We're halfway through now, and had a great healthy ultrasound this week, and feel a lot more comfortable being pregnant than the first 4 months! I wanted to share the news with you a bit earlier, but my creating and blogging mojo hasn't been the best... you probably could tell! But, I feel so much better this past month, starting prenatal yoga and being healthy... and now that I'm finishing up my mad work commitments and relaxing my extra curricular activities (LOL), I'm smooth sailing!

As I haven't felt so crafty, my darling friend gave me a whole bunch of beautiful floppy and flowy dresses to wear, as I 'popped' out and became really uncomfortable in my normal clothes in the past few weeks. These photos show a gorgeous vintage maternity dress, that I'm sure I'll get a lot of wear out of this winter! But how hilarious is Doris Day waiting patiently!? She's such a funny little dog!


This week, I finally found a bit of sewing mojo and made up some super comfy stretch clothes, and if you're keen, the post is up on Sew Weekly for the Mother's Day themed week... but I'll pop the photos up here too.

Thank you for still being a lovely friend here, you've stuck through a wishy washy season of my blog, and I really appreciate all your little check ins and your comments! I'm really excited about the rest of the year, and hope to share more news with you soon!

xoxo

  12. Congratulations! Are you still having morning sickness? If so, I recommend graham crackers. I nibbled on them when I was pregnant with my son and they worked wonders for me. Bland enough to not further upset my stomach, but just enough flavor to not make them sickening to eat.
