What I’m Packing In My Hospital Bag

When Four was born, I had no time to prepare. Since he came 5 weeks early and we were in the middle of moving back to Dallas, I hadn’t packed a single thing. When my water broke, we were told to come into the hospital quickly (since I was so early) so I literally only had time to grab a phone charger, my wallet, and my favorite blanket. This time,…

Favorite Nordstrom Maternity Products

Even though I haven’t bought a ton of maternity clothing this pregnancy, there are a few maternity pieces that I’ve been loving. I try to stick to staples when I shop for maternity clothing and only buy items I know I’ll wear again and again. It’s also super important to me that it be comfortable. Pregnancy is generally uncomfortable, so I try to dress in only the comfiest outfits. Let’s be…

Baby Book Reviews

A few months ago, I got the urge to start creating a baby book for Four. This is something I’ve been wanting to do since he was born, but life got in the way and I never got around to it. I printed out a ton of photos to use for Four’s first birthday and it inspired me to organize them and actually work on putting together a baby book…

Baby Shower Hostess Gifts

Last weekend, we got to shower baby girl with some of our favorite people, and it was honestly so special. We wanted something intimate that didn’t feel like a shower, and this gathering was perfect. We had the most amazing selection of food (including a s’mores situation that was to die for) and the decor was super chic and simple — exactly what I’d pick myself. My friends and fam truly…

Outfits Getting Me Through the Third Trimester

As I am nearing the end of my pregnancy, one of the hardest things is finding clothes that are comfortable but also look put together. This was a big stressor in my last pregnancy as well. I wrote a post back in 2020 about my 2nd trimester outfits and talked about how I really learned how to dress up a pair of leggings. Last time, I mentioned how the time…

Styling Maternity Denim for Fall

Hi friends! If you have been following my pregnancy journey you know I’ve mostly been wearing dresses. BUT since fall is right around the corner, I decided to pick up a pair of maternity jeans from Shopbop. I already have a hard time finding jeans that are the right length for me (I’m 5’3ish for reference), so I was kind of intimidated searching for a good maternity option. I ended…
