baby shower

Last weekend, Kyle's mom, Linda, my mom, and my sister threw me a lovely baby shower for close friends and family. It was such a sweet gesture and I was constantly amazed by all of the little details and how it all came together!

Loved the girly, French-inspired invitation:)

Gorgeous, fresh flower wristlets that Linda made for all of the guests to wear.

The food spread was delicious and a combination of American food as well as Chinese poor mom was up making eggrolls from scratch until late the night before. Now that's love!

We played a few baby games that were pretty hilarious and not too painful (thank you Megan), and ate some tasty petits fours...the chocolate ones had a marshmallow creme filling inside...delicious. I may have had two...or three, shhh. 

It was a beautiful baby shower and Kyle and I are very lucky parents-to-be to have such thoughtful family and friends to celebrate with us. If only our baby girl knew how loved she was already:)

busy busy

Things have been so busy around here lately that it's been hard for me to keep up with blogging. I wish it wasn't the case but sometimes life just gets in the way. We spent the last week and a half living out of a hotel room while our only bathroom in the house was being updated. I'm happy to say it's close to being finished!!! It feels so good to no longer have to worry about a rotting wood floor, pale pink tiles, or a plastic tub anymore (be thankful I didn't take a 'before' photo). I hope to have some photos soon to show you all. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

a girl and her bulldog

Photographer Rebecca Leimbach and her husband struggled with the realization of not being able to give their daughter, Harper, a sibling...until they realized that she already had one all along through Lola, their English Bulldog. How sweet are these photos??

I sure hope a certain reddish brown and white bully will feel the same way towards his little sister someday...!

hungry tee

Haha, sadly Kyle knows this line a little all too well if you ask me (or him!). I can't help it if I get "hangry" sometimes...

mansur gavriel

I only recently came across Mansur Gavriel totes and am now obsessed. Aren't they beautiful? Made with Italian vegetable tanned leather and brightly colored interiors (also comes in blue and pink!), they seem like the perfect all-around bag. Or diaper bag even...??? ;)

this guy

What can I say? I've officially entered the third trimester and cannot believe how fast time is flying by. In between cleaning and organizing our entire house like a crazy person, we've also started going to Lamaze classes and researching local day cares. It's madness, I tell ya!

One of the things that has kept me going is being able to curl up on the couch each night with this sweet little guy...he used to love sleeping in my lap but now that my belly has gotten in the way, he's adjusted to sleeping beside it with his arms outstretched. Almost as if he is trying to hug his little sister! I'm not sure if Pancho actually knows that she's there but I think baby girl sure does, judging by the number of kicks I get once he starts snoring next to her....I have to admit, the whole thing does melt my heart a little:)

shea butter soap

This soap packaging is so pretty...and with scents such as bourbon & vanilla, tea & tobacco, and sweet pea & clover, I have to say I'm intrigued. The "Bonjour Monsieur" above is a "combination of roasted tea leaves, tobacco, cedarwood & Sicilian lemon.

Sounds refreshing right?

vacation recap: sedona

We were lucky to be able to spend a long weekend in Sedona for our babymoon and it was exactly what we needed. The surroundings were simply breathtaking - from the scenic views of the red rock canyons to the cool crisp air and starry night skies - it was all so relaxing. Here are some photos of our trip if you'd like to see...

winter blues

Haha, I know I shouldn't complain since I live in Texas, but this illustration made me laugh. This winter feels like it's been going on forever...not to mention we've gotten a lot more snow/ice compared to previous years (though nothing compared to the northeast, I know). Here's to hoping spring is just around the corner!

P.S. I'm finishing up our Sedona trip report tonight and will post first thing tomorrow:)

babymoon in sedona!

Kyle and I are off on a quick little weekend trip to Sedona and we couldn't be more excited. Have you been before? We are staying at the Enchantment Resort, which is nestled in a secluded canyon..."surrounded by red-rock formations known for inspiring the mind, body and spirit." Eek, how relaxing does that sound?! At least I hope so...we've heard good things and can't wait to just sit around and do nothing. 

I can't believe I am already six months along (well, my giant belly says otherwise)...our baby will be here before we know it. I'm going to try my best not to think about all the things we still have to do before she arrives and just enjoy our last trip as a family of two:)

Have a great weekend!

nursery ideas

Right now, I'm in the planning stages of decorating our baby girl's nursery...and there's so much to think about! Since we live in a two bedroom house, we'll be keeping our spare bed, so the room will need to be both a guest room and a baby's room. In thinking about the environment I want to create (since I'm guessing I will be spending a lot of my time in there once the baby arrives), I'd like for it to be calming, airy and bright...filled with white/gray/neutrals and little bits of color here and there. This way, it will be easy to change out certain pieces if I get bored or let's say, if/when baby #2 comes along later ;)

I'll be sure to post a few photos once it's finished, so stay tuned!
