week 34 ::: romaine

The swelling is here to stay. Not sure these few images can convey it well. The baby daddy worked all weekend and only had a few minutes to help me get a quick profile of the 34 week bump. My little sprout is opening/closing eyes and can respond to light. It's a complete miracle I tell you.

I hope a wonderful week is in store for you as we say goodbye to February, and hello to spring, yes?!?


week 33 ::: pineapple

Another week down. The only new news is cankles. UGH why?! Doing extra excercises to help keep the swelling to a minimum. :/

Only 4 WEEKS until term! I can't even believe it. Starting to feel as though things are coming together (with some major spring cleaning/purging going on). Enjoy your week, everyone!


week 32 ::: fennel

8 weeks and counting people! And aren't my Jamberry nails from Heather amazing?! I also realize I should have trimmed the fennel a bit, as Baby O is about 17" tall. Seeing the fennel next to my belly I think it's a little taller...oops. Crazy thing this week, I can feel this little babe flip his/her entire body from my left to right side (and back). Boogie nights in my belly, wha?!

PS. Does anyone know recipes using fresh fennel???


week 31 ::: honeydew

Down to the single digit week countdown—only 9 weeks until I meet this little person! Yesterday was just too cold for outdoor pics. And it gives me a chance to show off a peek at the nursery paint job.

Have a great week!


week 30 ::: mini watermelon

Agh I'm so behind this week! It's more like 30.5 weeks along. My baby is now about 15" and around 2 lbs. Though the watermelon be little, it certainly feels big. As does my abdomen.

I finished up painting the nursery yay! Ever so slowly I am going to nest this little house.


week 29 ::: lettuce

I'm beginning to feel a 'little' pudgy and burnt out, haha. I'm running out of outfits, feel like the environments are ugly, and limited options for larger vege options. Hopefully I can make it work for 11 more weeks!

How was everyone's weekend? Hopefully you got an extra day off! We spent the weekend painting, which is a very GOOD thing. Feeling the crunch to get our house in order soon!


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!
