Dressing Like You’re Pregnant, or Not Dressing Appropriately for Being Pregnant?

If the way that I dress hasn’t changed much now that I’m showing, does that mean I’ve always dressed like I’m pregnant, or that now I’m not dressing accordingly? I’m kind of afraid it’s the first one ;). But I’ll just chalk it up to the fact that I love being comfortable! And I love this button down thing – it can be a dress or worn as a duster/kimono.

The Bump in Action + The Gender Roller Coaster

Guys – hi! Can I just say that pregnancy is a ROLLER COASTER?! And it just so happens that for us, finding out the gender has been no different. Since our pregnancy is considered high risk (just because of the fact that it’s twins), we get more ultrasounds than most would.

The Golden Gate Bridge | Best Viewpoint

Blake and I decided to make a stop at the Golden Gate Bridge on our road trip.  He couldn’t remember being there when he was little, and even though I feel like I’ve been there a million times it never gets old.  As Blake said on our trip, “Bridges are just so cool.”  And this is one of the coolest!  For those of you who haven’t been, you need to go!  And if you’re wondering…

The Jetset Diaries | New York, NY

As soon as I got this jacket, I knew I had to take it to New York.  I wore it on a night we went out to an amazing dinner at Buddakan and to see Finding Neverland (all planned and gifted to me by my incredible siblings!).  Now I love the jacket even more, because it reminds me of that night! I layered it with one of my favorite sweaters from Knot Sisters, which kept me…
