Maternity Style Struggle | LEGOE.

I’ve always heard that it’s hard to find good maternity clothes, but you didn’t fully realize it until I needed them myself. It’s so frustrating to be dealing with a growing belly, growing out of the clothes you normally wear, and then feel like you can’t find anything up to par with your regular style ;). I’ve made it work with a combination of loose-fitting normal clothes and a handful of good maternity clothes. LEGOE.…

Hiking Tiger Mountian | Poo Poo Point

Last week while we were home (well, my home) in the Pacific Northwest, my Mom took us all on one of her favorite hikes, to Poo Poo Point. Poo Poo Point is a peak on the west side of Tiger Mountain, with an amazing view of Issaquah, Lake Sammamish, and Bellevue with a bit of Seattle if you look hard enough ;). My mom told us that the name Poo Poo Point came from the sound…

Heading out for the Holiday Weekend

Guys, it’s almost the 4th of JULY! Seriously my favorite holiday right next to Christmas. This year we are spending it at my parent’s lake house in Washington. Weather permitting, I’ll be floating on the boat all week and I’m SO excited about it. My mom has a new hike she wants to take us on as well, so (belly permitting) I’ll let you guys know how it is! As I’ve been packing today, I…

More Pink, Our Anniversary, Cribs, and Our Latest Ultrasound

Rose Pink Whether I’m more partial to pink because I have two girls on the way, or I caught the “Millenial Pink” fever, there seems to be more pink creeping in around here. And guess what? I’m ok with it. I keep telling Blake my favorite color is now “Rosé” ;). So, when I saw this silky trench from Stillwater, I HAD TO HAVE IT. And guys, it’s amazing in person. I just want to…

Fighting Stretch Marks During Pregnancy | My Plan of Attack

Preventing Stretch Marks, Even if it’s Hereditary I’ve always been afraid of stretch marks, so you can imagine the increase in my fear when I found out I was having twins ;). Both my Mom and sister have always told me how bad their stretch marks were, so if it’s true that stretch marks are hereditary I’m a goner. However, I decided that even if I’m doomed to get some stretch marks, it’s still worth trying…

IKEA Tarva Dresser Hack, Round II

As much as I swore I wouldn’t buy furniture at IKEA for the new house, I found myself planning another IKEA hack! We hacked a dresser for our bedroom a couple of years ago, but that dresser didn’t fit right in our new bedroom. Because we want to get a whole new bedroom set in a few years, I didn’t want to splurge on an expensive dresser now. So we opted to hack the Tarva…

Summer Solstice + Cheesecake

Last night, to celebrate Summer Solstice, we ate cheesecake! Cheesecake is a rare occurrence around here – I usually only make it once a year for Blake’s birthday. I learned how to make it the year we were engaged – Blake’s mom Becky used to make it for his birthday every year growing up and he loves her cheesecake. She was sweet enough to teach me how, and I’m still trying to perfect mine but…

It’s Two…Girls!

Yep, we are adding TWO GIRLS to this home, and we are so excited. Finding out the gender was a bit of a roller coaster for us (which you can read about here), but I have to give our 12 week ultrasound tech props because she was right from the very beginning! We had our big anatomy scan ultrasound this past week (usually done at 20 weeks but my doctor wanted mine done at 18)…

Newport Beach Staycation | The Resort at Pelican Hill

This past weekend, we had the best little staycation at Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach. I promised that we’d go to Pelican Hill more in this post, and we’ve been making good on that promise! As I discovered in the post I mentioned, it really is so accessible to locals and such a great place to get away. So when I knew an old friend was coming into town for the weekend, I hurried and…

Flowy Maxi Dresses (for all of Summer)

Even when I’m not pregnant, I love me a good, flowy maxi. I’m sure I’m even more partial to them this summer now that I’m pregnant and I’ve had my eye on a few, so I decided to round them up for you! A good maxi dress can get pricey, and while sometimes that’s worth it I tried to keep it under $200 for this post ;). My favorite favorite of all is hands down this…
