Happy Hump Day loves! I can’t believe we are half way through the week already! I am so excited today because I am having my 20 week ultrasound today! I cannot wait to see our little guy! I have been feeling him like crazy so I can’t wait to see what he’s been up to in there and of course just hoping he’s healthy! So today I am sharing some pictures from our gender reveal party we had last month. My mom and I handmade all the decor on my Cricut and I just love how it all turned out! If you are a serious crafter you need a Cricut in your life! I’m so obsessed with it! I even made the cupcake holders with it! I am already thinking of crafts I can do for the nursery too! All the frames we got are from thrift stores, the champagne flutes are dollar store finds, and the mimosa bar carafes (which were hard to find not super pricey) I ended up finding at Aldi! It was definitely a special day we got to spend with close friends and family and of course finding out Baby J was a BOY when we shot off the confetti canons! See our gif below ;p I hope you all have an awesome Wednesday! <3

Happy hump day loves, or should I say bump day! I am excited to be sharing my very first bump update with you all! I am going to get into all about my first trimester, but honestly I was a bit lucky and it wasn’t all that eventful! When I first found out around 4 weeks my very first and only symptom was sore breasts and boy did they keep getting soarer and soarer as the weeks went on! I couldn’t stand to wear bras! Then came the fatigue! Ugh after going to the store made me feel like I needed a nap! Then around week 6 a bit of nausea started to kick in. Mine kind of came in waves but it was pretty mild. I never got to the point where I felt like I was going to vomit, thank goodness! I more had the feeling that everything, especially smells, made me want to gag! Going to the grocery store was awful smelling the mix of food. I would literally start gagging walking down the aisles. So cute right?! Along with that fabulous gagging feeling came major food aversions. For about 2 weeks the only things I could eat were carbs! That is all I wanted. Don’t bring anything else near me! I am lucky I only had 2 really bad weeks of feeling like that and as I hit around 9 weeks each week increasingly became better and I felt more like myself. Now that I hit my second trimester I have to remind myself that I am pregnant because I feel completely normal! They say your second trimester is a breeze and I am lucky mine has been so far, knock on wood! I will update you though once I get half way through the second trimester!
Happy almost Friday loves!! Griffin and I are soooooo excited to announce Baby J is a BOY!!!! We are so excited to finally be able to start planning and everything is now feeling so real!! I am already going boy clothes and nursery crazy! If you are a boy mom send me all the cute boy clothes stores!! Griffin is also super pumped for a little boy to play golf with haha! Now we just need to figure out his name! We had a lot of potential girl names lined up but for some reason boy names have been really tough for us! Hoping to narrow one down soon! As for my dress I don’t think I have ever seen a prettier dress! The ruffles are so gorgeous, fun, and unique! It is also currently on sale fully stocked! We have an exciting weekend ahead and doing a mini staycation for our 6 year anniversary. We decided to just do fun things around town and skip the trip this year to save money towards all the baby stuff we will be getting the next few months. I cannot believe it has been 6 years already! We have so much to celebrate this year and I cannot wait to see Griffin become a father! He is going to be the best daddy in the universe! I am beyond lucky! I am praying our son is just like him! Because if he’s like me we may be in a bit of trouble ;p I hope you all have the best weekend! <3
