Mumberry Collaboration

Top: Mumberry | Bottoms: Target | Shoes: Nike | Hat: Windsor | Sunglasses: Ray Ban

Today's post is a collaboration with Mumberry maternity top. At this point it is all about comfort and it's definitely easier said than done. I don't think this baby can get anymore room than this. I have been feeling kicking and jabbing non-stop. I think anytime now and he will soon make his debut. I can not be anymore excited and nervous at the same time. My family and I also visited one of our favorite park in Virginia. We wanted to spend as much as we can with our first born and as a family of three before an addition welcome to our lives. I love the last photo of Adrianna who is just having a moment of her life. This was our first time flying a kite and the perfect place to do it was at Mt. Trashmore in Virginia Beach because the hill was high enough and it was the most perfect day with the right amount of wind to blow our kites. There were also quite a few people who also flew their kites that day. I loved that there's a big kid's park, a walking trail for any runners/joggers and you can do a picnic on the top of the hill. What are some of things you do with your family for fun? I'd love to know! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great week!

Pregnancy Update: 35 Weeks

Top: Cotton On (similar style here) | Dress: Taylor & Sage | Sandals: Tory Burch | Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim (old.. similar bag here)

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend! Today I am sharing this look from a couple weeks ago. If you know I have been posting at least once a week and on Mondays. I will try my best to post up more with my last post I talked about my husband being in the military and he has been gone more this time. He is usually my photographer guy so I will try to share more outfit posts. I have been taking photos for what we do as part of my "Lifestyle" posts. I wanted to do an update on my pregnancy since I don't think I've ever done one on here. I hope you enjoy and thank you so much for following along..

HOW FAR ALONG: 35 weeks and 4 days! I went in for my 35 weeks check up last Friday and got to see our sweet boy on an ultrasound! The sweetest moments plus listening to the heartbeat of course. He is head down so that is good news! Possibly weighing about 7 lbs. which is normal. I feel like he will be bigger than my last who weighed at 6 lbs. 7 oz.
HER SIZE: A canary melon (according to my app)
WEIGHT GAIN: Honestly I can not remember! I can definitely feel this time around I weigh more than my last. I constantly get hungry more and trying to eat healthy was a total fail. I get people saying I look bigger and that I look like I am about to pop! 
SLEEP: Some nights I sleep fine. Other nights it's very uncomfortable to sleep tossing and turning and leg cramps! Plus waking up in the middle of the night to pee and can't go back to sleep.
SYMPTOMS: I don't get sick but I get tired and exhausted all the time. 
FOOD CRAVINGS: I crave a lot of bread! My doctor told me because I have gestational diabetes that I can't eat too much breads or watch my carbs. I also drink sodas when I gave it up a long time ago. I never drunk any with my last one but this time I crave mainly Sprite. 
STRETCH MARKS: This time I didn't get any stretch marks except they're light ones from previous pregnancy. 
MOVEMENT: He moves everyday! Most of the time when I'm sitting I can feel his feet jabbing my ribs. 
NAMES: We have one picked out but waiting til he gets here..

Welcome Home Sign

   Many of you may not know that my husband serves in the military hence the welcome home sign poster board above. Although he isn't deployed yet, but about two weeks ago he was on a fast cruise for about two weeks and it was the first time that I've experienced him being away for that long. We were stationed in Nevada for three years before we PSC to Virginia. The whole military lifestyle is still new to me and still getting adjust to our new location. So in today's post, I wanted to share a little  mini project I did with my 2 year old daughter for her daddy while he was away. I will definitely be using this sign as a welcome home sign after my husband get back from his deployment. I found this idea from Pinterest and thought it was a perfect sign for my daughter and of course came up with my own creative idea. A lot of the crafts you can get from either Hobby Lobby, Jo-Ann, or any craft store near you. I got the gold letter stickers from Target and there was enough letters to use for this sign. Although it's simple but I love the pink and gold together. My friend also helped me crochet the little pink bows to give it some dimensions and add a bit more details to make it not so plain. Overall I love with how it came out and can't wait to show it off during homecoming day. If you are a military wife and you did one of these for your husband I would love to see what you did! I hope you all have a great day!

Blue Tie Dye

Dress: Target | Jacket: H&M | Sandals: Tory Burch (similar style different color) | Lips: All Fired Up by Mac

Happy Monday everyone! This look was from weeks ago on Jul 4th and I almost forgot to post it up. This dress is a size small and is non-maternity so it totally works for my 34 weeks belly. I just realized that we are officially in August! Fall is right around the corner and I am inspired to shop for some scarves, cardigan and booties! Also, officially one month (or less) left until we will be a family of four! Although I will be missing this belly but I am also excited to be able to do a lot more without the belly in the way. I hope you enjoy my post on this look. Who else is excited for Fall?! Thank you for following along..
