the perfect mint paint

23 May

I’m on the hunt for the perfect mint paint.

I’ve actually already tried about 10 colors, with still no luck.

This is what I’m looking for

The above color is actually Robins Nest by Ben Moore. But of course with lighting and camera settings it’s a beautiful mint color. Which I must have!

BTW I tried Robins Nest and it’s way too dark for the space and of course not mint.

This one is Spearmint Stick by Behr…pretty right? well the swatch is almost fluorescent green. Not exactly what the photo reads. But I still love this color and want it!

22 weeks

30 Apr

Lately I’ve been pretty consumed with the baby shower, although I have my sister in law, sister and girlfriends all helping me. I can’t help obsessing over it, plus its at my house so I love that I will have full creative control on all the décor.

Still no real cravings. Which I guess is good, because the scale won’t stop moving! Pretty crazy to see it go up each week, something I’m so not used to.

It’ll all be worth it though, once I meet my sweet girl.

In other news, we started working on the nursery. I’ll post an update on that soon.

Have great week!

I’m officially past the half way point. Yay!! only 19 more weeks to go!

Baby girl is growing big and strong, because her kicks are getting so much stronger these days.

So other than the scale not much else has changed these days. Ha!

I’m just enjoying being pregnant and flaunting this bump.

My current cravings have been cereal…love me some cereal. It’s basically my dessert after dinner. Right now I’m obsessed with this brand.

bumpers

I could easily eat this all day!

In fact I’m going to pour myself a bowl right now ; )

Have a great weekend!

Can’t believe I’m already at 19 weeks, almost half way there!!

19 weeks

This past week baby girl has been kicking up a storm. She gets really active after dinner when I lay down to rest. I love feeling her move, It’s like our own special time together.

And on Easter Sunday after we were winding down from a long day, she was very happy and active so Daddy got to feel her for the first time!

I still haven’t had many cravings, or if I do I forget about them pretty quickly.

Last night I got really creative and made a belly butter recipe I came across on Molly Sim’s blog

belly butter recipe

Basically you melt all these ingredients together. It’s super oily but It’s going to be so great for my expanding belly.

I’m into my 17th week now, and baby is the size of an onion…so they say.

This week I noticed my belly had a little growth spurt. I don’t think I’ve officially “popped” but I definitely think I’m starting to look preggers.

Favorite foods this week have been avocado (of course) and peanut butter.

I’ve felt slight flickering in my tummy, which I think is baby kicking and punching away.

I’ve also been keeping a little secret from you…about a week ago we saw our little angel via ultrasound and found out the sex!

wait for it…

belly and shoes

Yep! We’re having a girl!

We are so happy to be having a little girl. I went in totally thinking I was having a boy, so she was definitely a nice little surprise!

I can’t wait for ruffles, pink, and all the clothes!

And most of all I can’t wait to meet her.

At 16 weeks I’m starting to feel like myself again. No more morning sickness. Yay! food is my friend again. My energy level is definitely picking up, even though I still long for my 3:00 nap time.

So far I’m not really craving any specific foods, except for Mexican food but that’s pretty normal for me. Oh! and I’ve been eating a lot of avocado, which is funny because at 16 weeks they say the baby is the size of an avocado.

I took some time over the weekend to do a little stroller shopping. First on Saturday with my bestie and then I went back on Sunday with the husband. I’m a little stroller obsessed.

I’m really loving the iCandy Peach

Also, love the ease of use and all the features that come with the Uppababy Vista

They didn’t have it at the store I went to, but I still want to test out Phil & Ted’s Promenade.

Any advice from stroller moms is much appreciated!

coming clean…literally

16 Mar

Yes, I’m about to admit I have a secret weapon when it comes to my “hoarding”

Which is everything goes into the guest room and the door stays closed forever.

Until now of course…because it’s time to organize and get this room in tip top shape for babies arrival.

Unfortunately I was too excited to get started and forgot to take before pictures of the room, but trust me it was bad and you could barely even walk inside.

I snapped a couple of pictures during my organizing rampage, it might not look like it but this is major progress.

Pretty embarrassing.

I hope to have it completely cleared out by this weekend. But I think I’ll leave the bed in there until we get our nursery furniture since believe it or not, we actually have friends stay in here. True friends of course…that don’t judge.

On another note I forgot to share with you my 14 week baby bump.

Have a great weekend!
