The Belly Freakout

Is it just me or do you have people in your life that could not touch your belly? It freaks them out?
My husband is one of them, for the loonnnngggest time he would not touch it, I wanted so bad for him to feel when the baby first started moving, but nope. I think he has felt him once during this whole pregnancy. He says its like a little alien living in me. My sister is the same way, unless she has had a few drinks in her, then she's all about the belly.
I have to admit, it was weird for me at first as well. The first time he really kicked me, I cried. It scared me so bad, I was shaking, and not like the good kind. I was thinking to myself, how can I go on like this?
It has obviously gotten better with me, and I'm used to it now, but did anyone else ever feel the same way??

Again, my sister had a few drinks in her and wanted to do a photo shoot. ... okay

Courthouse Wedding

A few weeks back I went down to good ole Lexington, Kentucky for a courthouse wedding.
After over 12 years together + years together in high school my momma got married. It was a wonderful weekend, other than being completely uncomfortable and the sober one. Plus, my mom is the best cook eva and we had some amazing food.

What I wore for the big moment:

Easter Sunday

The countdown is on, and Easter was the last time I will see my family before my little babe arrives. It is so hard for me to believe he is almost here, due date is two and a half weeks away and my doctor yesterday just said it is the waiting game now.

Easter was such a beautiful day even though it is always crazy busy on holidays we managed to make it out once again...alive.

I can hardly believe it's been a year since THIS!

Thoughts on being Pregnant at 8 months

I'm often scared of what is to come. I think, my life is about to change, change forever. It will never be the same. I have virtually lived my life selfish. I have MY routine. I have MY life and here I am in a very short month going to be living for someone else.
But I feel so beyond blessed that I have been chosen to carry and love this little guy. He is half of me and half of my husband. How amazing is that? I never realized how amazing having a baby actually is. It's pretty amazing that I grew this little bitty guy to be a healthy human being. Already so blessed to be his mommy and wife to his daddy. Life is good. Even though I'm absolutely beyond scared straight about my life and his life ahead of us, I'm even more excited to raise this baby into a boy and then a man. He is mine forever.
We love you Cohen Malachi.

Trying to get some ideas for the maternity shoot. I bought this one for one of the shots. Still trying to think of an outfit idea for me and my husband.

Here are some ideas I'm going with..

Date Night

What a busy week life it has been over the last few weeks. I am finally done with school until July! I have had something going on every weekend for the last two months and I'm still working, oh and yeah almost 36 weeks pregnant! I can hardly believe it! He will be here before I know it and I still have things to get done!
We have been so busy with other things we have hardly had any time to ourselves so a few weeks back we got to go on a double date with some of our good friends. Indian Food is my favorite and we tried a new restaurant and it was delish! It's hard for this preggo to turn down good food!

I was trying to dress up...

Ideas for a bathroom makeover

While on this break(ha) I was thinking about redoing my bathroom. Using such a bold color in the babies room has gotten me excited to go bold else where.
I obviously do not have a ton of money to put into this project(hello first baby acoming) so I need to make a budget and things that I want to do.
Paint wall
Paint vanity
Change towel paper holder and towel rack
New mirror
While trying to stay around $100?
We will see

These are some Pinspiration photos

Some things fit better pregnant

Kate Spade necklace from Ebay{remember it here} Shirt Urban Outfitters{Similar} Skirt Anthropologie
Boots Anthropologie

I bought this skirt last summer when in Chicago and it never really fit right. My legs are to short and my butt is to big
However, a bigger belly makes a smaller butt so right now(or then) the skirt actually fit! yay.
I wore this while attending an ASID meeting
For those of you who do not know, I am an interior design student and going to these meeting gets me meeting business professionals already in the field!  
Speaking of school... I got a call that I'm officially a Junior now! Yay! 
But that has to wait until July....
Super sad I will be missing a whole quarter but now I have more time to get things in order before the arrival of little mr.  uhhh maybe. I'm still working and my weekends are pretty full as of right now, but in better news nursery is coming along quite well. Got the crib set up, FINALLY purchased a dresser(one for me too) Room is painted and shelves are hung.
I'll post once completed
