Happy holidays friends! Just wanted to stop by since I’m long overdue for a quick update. Since you last saw me I was in the midst of pregnancy and now, well, now I’m near the end of my journey but still pregnant ๐Ÿ™‚ Approaching #38weeks to be exact and in a mode of awareness that anytime, anywhere, it.may.go.down. The holiday break has been a wonderful opportunity to catch up on the last-minute details of the nursery, stocking up on fun essentials (like polka-dotted leggings), and getting mentally prepared for the big D-day :O

Blogs and Pinterest continue to be a source of inspiration as I get dressed everyday, and in the last few weeks I even ventured out into purchasing items for my post-pregnancy self. Since I’m new at this and all I know is my current state of roundness (which I don’t mind all too much), I selected a few new items that will help look forward to getting back my ‘old’ physique. Pregnancy can do such a number on a woman’s self esteem, and it can go either way, from miserable to embracing the new life being created within, but I’ll explore more on another post as to how my personal journey came to be. Now that I’m this far along and babe is definitely feeling big, I’m feeling ready to meet our little sweet potato ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. You look fantastic! Dressing the bump has been harder than I thought it would be especially since the weather in Ohio has been crazy-freezing cold and snowing one day, 50 and sunny the next!
    I hope you had a wonderful holiday. Happy New Year!

    • Courtnee, congratulations on your little bean!! What an exciting time fo you and yes, it’s been a fun challenge dressing up the bump during the cold weather, trying hard not to just throw on a blanket over yourself and call it a day! I know you’ve got loads of creativity to make that bump look smashing ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Oh my goodness…you are so crazy cute! Wishing you a great last couple of weeks before baby comes! Have a wonderful, blessed new year with your new little family, Dea!

    • Gemma, you’re always so warm and generous with your commentary, love it! Many thanks for the wishes, because the closer I get to the due date the more I feel like I’m ready to pop! All the very best to you on this new year dear friend ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Fallon, happy New Year to you and your sweets and hope you’re doing great! Thank you thank you for your kind wishes, I really need to listen when people tell me to take it easy ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Dea, you look so beautiful! I hope you had a great holiday! Relish these final days of being a duoโ€ฆ It is such a happy anticipatory time, even with all its physical discomforts (and comedic featsโ€ฆ I was sleeping in a nest of pillows that took me 20 minutes to arrange myself into)! And relish those precious swiftly-passing days of being new parents! What everyone says is true. They will go by so fast! It won’t feel like it while you’re living in the present. But you will blink and a year will have passedโ€ฆ
