rustic baby shower

Today I get to show off MY rustic {gender neutral} baby shower! Such sweet details!

Birch straws + real birch wood = my favorite.

LOVE my invitations & party signage designed by the with-us-in-spirit, Mekala (who just updated her lovely website). 

Burlap accents & handmade paper doll garlands. To drink we had hot cider and punch, along with an array of amazing foods.

Super fun & delicious party favors of caramel popcorn.

Ahhh, so wonderful! My sweet girlfriends did such a great job, I felt so honored that day and couldn't have hoped for a better celebration.

week 28 ::: eggplant

7 months this little booger has been cooking now. Not much else going on with me. My slow work season has hit and I may need motivation to not just lay around all the time. Moving my office is going to be dreadful. Why must I accumulate so much stuff?! Though it helps knowing after the office is all things baby!

Have a great week!


week 27 ::: butternut squash

First post of 2014 and first day of my third trimester! Still in complete denial that in just over 3 months there will be another person in our family. We just got back from our two week holiday, and after a few days of catching up on work/home I plan to be full on nesting. Be ready for cuteness overload!

Have a wonderful week, everyone!


week 26 ::: flowering kale

Happy week 26 to baby O! I found this pretty kale and couldn't resist using it for this weeks' baby bump update.

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, and now a wonderful evening to welcome in the New Year! Happy 2014 everyone!


week 25 ::: cauliflower

A day behind on this weeks' bump progress. We traveled to Co & Wyo for the holiday this past weekend. And the day we took these photos was also my hometown baby shower. It was sooo incredibly sweet + adorable—I feel so lucky to have such amazing friends who put so much effort into making me feel special (along with all those to came out to celebrate)! Fingers crossed a few of the pics will turn out!

Now time for some relaxing and celebrating this wonderous season. I truly wish everyone a week of wonder and joy! Merry Christmas!


week 24 ::: cantaloupe

6 months you guys! Strangers can see my baby bump! And I think I'm getting the nesting bug. After the holidays I plan to dive in to lots of fun projects. Yay! Is everyone ready for Christmas? Only a week left to prepare!


week 23 ::: grapefruit

Last week was fall, and this week is now clearly winter. Yet apparently nothing has changed in baby size, 11" & 1 lb. Which makes the carrot comparision even more confusing. Ah well! These light airy photos make me happy. As do skinny belts. 

Have a great week, friends!


advent packaging

Much of my Thanksgiving weekend was putting together these two advent packages. Both swaps were organized by Oh, Hello Friend. The top set is to 12 different people (as you likely guessed from their names) and the bottom set is all to the same person. Though a lot of work—so fun to have done them. And my apologies to those in the post office line behind me!

Anyone else gifting an Advent set this year? Little gifts are the best!


week 22 ::: carrot

I expect everyone had a great holiday weekend! My weekly baby bump photo sports a carrot this week. The baby is measuring roughly 11" and weighing almost a pound. Over the long weekend, we started the project of my new basement office—which means hopefully I'll get to decorate a nursery in the near future!

This is a very good thing. And I hope everyone is ready for a steller (post-holiday) week!


week 21 ::: spaghetti squash

The bump may be noticeabe now! My little spaghetti squash (haha). And prenatal yoga is ahhhh-mazing. Not much else to report, other than I should definitely get to prepping on things like—the nursery. Long weekend ahead = perfect time to start. Enjoy your short work week!
