Style File — Bump Official

pink blush 7

There is something about reaching the 20 week mark in pregnancy that feels exhilarating. Tiring too, but mostly I have this overarching joy surrounding the sweet baby growing inside of me. With 20 weeks brings a noticeable bump and therefore, more “Congratulations!” and less “Are you pregnant?” comments. Even better, I feel daily kicks from this sweet […]

Style File — We’re Twins!

method 2

Just to clarify … Jemma is twinning with her favorite people,  you’ll see what I mean when you scroll down. I AM NOT HAVING TWINS! Uno baby in this mama’s womb! I’ve never been one to use special-for-baby detergents. Laundry is a big enough chore as it is and I’m not one to create more […]

Yes, I’m a Pregnant Runner

Processed with VSCOcam with f1 preset

These days I do three things. Try to find something appetizing to eat – the plague of my first trimesters. Sleep – lots. And run – as fast and as long as I can a few times each week. You see, before I found out I was pregnant I committed to a race. I even […]

You know what it’s like to snuggle up in your favorite blanket with a good book and nothing on your to do list? Add a warm drink and soft rainfall pounding the windows. Maybe your (or my) favorite score playing softly in the background. That’s what I imagine it’s like when I scoop my little […]

Style File /// His + Hers

IMG_7231

I’ve been in a bit of a blogging rut lately. First it was Texas and the recovery from that. Then a round of colds that slowly passed through all 4 of us. Bleh. From there I got sucked into a bunch of books and started spending all my evenings in the bath with this whilst […]

Style File /// The 7th Fix

stitchfix 7

Happy Monday! This weekend ended on a sour note for all us Pacific Northwest folks who were cheering on our Seahawks. I’m a total bandwagon fan, but sported my tee and fancy headband with pride. I even joined in the actual game watching in the final 2 minutes and thus, got to see all the […]
