Target Treasures

Happy Friday ladies! Do you all have fun plans for the weekend? We have a couple things on the books...Damian's high school musical tonight and a couple of Aubrey's soccer games to go to...but other than that, I want to spend Saturday and Sunday getting a few things checked off the "Before Baby To-Do List". We will see how much I actually get done though... ;)

Thought I would pop on today and share some of my favorite finds from Target that I have picked up recently. You all know my love of Target by now, and I am always amazed at what great things can be found there - and in so many different categories (clothes, cosmetics, shoes, home decor...etc, etc.) These are all things I've purchased over the past two weeks and am loving so far!

Bumpdate // Third Trimester

Well, we are getting towards the finish line here. Only a couple more weeks left (if I'm lucky). We are excited and ready to meet our little girl! I am currently 35 weeks and 5 days, so I have about 4 weeks left if I were to go up until my due date of May 25th.

I thought that was likely to happen, as I've heard most first time moms go that long (or longer) ...but at my recent doctor's appointments they've been keeping an eye on my blood pressure and such as they were worried about pre-eclampsia.  That s**t is no joke, apparently, so I have more appointments this week and we will see what they say...but the word "induce" was thrown around at my last appointment. Hoping that isn't necessary, but I'll do what ever we need to to get baby girl here safely!

Loving Lately

 Happy Friday my friends! Hope you have all had a nice week and have some fun plans for the weekend. 

I am traveling up to Akron for my maternity pictures with Bethany Zadai (same awesome photographer that did our engagement pics)! The pictures are Sunday, and I am SO excited - the weather report looks good and we are hoping to get some really pretty outdoor shots. I'm actually headed up a day early, on Saturday, to have a girl's night sleepover with one of my besties!

Sharing some things that I have been loving lately - have my eye on all of them, but haven't taken the plunge and purchased any yet! xx

Baby Shower // Columbus

Happy Monday!

This past weekend, my Mum threw me a beautiful baby shower on Saturday for all my friends and family in the Columbus area. She had help from my little sister and grandma, and it was such a perfect day. They put so much work into all the details and it turned out so lovely...I'm so grateful for the generous friends and family we have and how excited they all are for baby Steiner to arrive!

Skin Care Tag

I found this tag circulating around YouTube the other day, and even thought I don't make videos, I thought it would be a fun one to do a blog post about! 

Skin care is so important. It is something that I didn't pay much attention to when I was younger - but as I've gotten older, I've taken the time to learn more about it and invest in products that are good quality and that actually work. I always feel that less is more, and consistency is important - and those are principles I try to bring to my skin care routine as well.

Tea Time

Kinda of like coffee talk - except I don't drink coffee ;)

I don't know about you, but I am already dragging this morning. Maybe it is because I didn't sleep well last night (yet again). Despite being tired, I'm so happy to see sunshine and warmer temps outside - it is supposed to be in the mid 70s today in Columbus! 

Some things on my mind this Monday morning...

Pregnancy Must Haves

Pregnancy Must Haves

When I found out that I was pregnant, I decided that I wasn't going to fall victim to all the trendy "must have" items that were floating around the internet. Especially being a first-time mom, it is overwhelming how much is out there...that everyone is telling you that you "need". Don't fall for the gimmicks! Doing so, you will just find yourself spending hundreds of dollars on things that aren't really necessary. 

So, I wanted to put together a quick list of the things that I really have found helpful. None of which will break the bank and all of which have been used (sometimes on the daily) throughout my entire pregnancy - first, second, and third trimesters!

March Favorites

Sorry for my lack of posting the past week or so - life has gotten the better of me...mainly in the pregnancy department. We've been very busy and this third trimester is making everything seem a bit harder to accomplish. 

But enough with the whining and excuses...let's get on to some of my March favorites! ;)
