I read this week that my uterus in now the size of a basketball, which is starting to feel like what I am carrying around. I wore this shirt at 16 weeks and it's quite the change now at 24 weeks. I'm sure others would agree that you keep thinking you look really big until you look at weeks before and realize how small you look compared to now!
I started writing this post and thought it wouldn't take me long, until I spent over 30 minutes looking through old pictures. I was trying to find one picture and I got distracted and ended up looking through quite a few. But it made me so thankful for pictures! It also made me miss my tan self and summer!
Today I get to go to Lake Geneva for the night with this sweet friend. Lake Geneva is this cute little town about 45 minutes from us in Wisconsin and I love it!

So far this week has been wonderful. I've been able to spend time with a good friend, with my mom, relaxing at home and a lot of time at my sewing machine! I made a bumper for our crib and curtains.
I LOVE them! Weeks like this I always think I'll spend more time on my computer, reading blogs, responding to emails, etc. but I have spent much less time doing those things and I am quite happy about it! It's nice to have a little break! So if I haven't responded to your comments or read your blog this week I certainly will be back at it next week.
I'm thankful to have Eliza here to make this post a little more exciting! I love that Eliza loves scarves, stripes and sweatpants (like myself), is a talented shop owner, and has a blog that is a little bit of everything.

My husband + I live in a yellow house in Virginia with our dog, Nellie. I am a blogger, shop owner, Instagram enthusiast, knitter, and lover of all things wonderful. This season you'll find me working through my spring bucket list and learning to cook more plant-based meals. I hope you'll grab a mimosa (or two), enter the giveaway below, and come by + say hello!

I got this dress almost a month ago and have been waiting until it was warm outside to wear it, but am deciding to ignore the cold weather and pretend that it really is indeed Spring outside. I was so excited to get a chance to pick out something from a store with such fun and beautiful maternity clothes.
Pink Blush Maternity is filled with trendy maternity clothes and I had the hardest time deciding on which item to order as there are so many cute options from dresses to tops to skirts - I would like to own a lot of them!
I am very happy with my choice and know that I will be able to wear this throughout the rest of my pregnancy. Cute, incredibly comfortable and it could be dressy or casual.
Pink Blush Maternity is giving one lucky reader a $25 gift card to pick out whatever maternity clothing you'd like. Enter below:

I started answering some of your questions in this post and figured it was time to finish the rest that were more fashion related.
In the spring and summer I mostly wear skirts and dresses with sandals. These pictures make me SO ready for warm weather! Except I am realizing I will be 8 and 9 months pregnant and outfit picking and getting dressed won't be that fun!

This whole pregnancy journey so far has been quite an emotional one. From our long road to get here to our scary complications at the start. There have been many moments where I've been overcome with emotions from fear to excitement. Thankfully the majority of the overwhelming emotions lately have been due too complete tenderness and joy at the thought of bringing our daughter into our lives.
Feeling her first movements, finding out she was a girl, Chris feeling her kick for the first time, hanging up clothes in her closet, registering for baby stuff . . . There have been so many surreal moments the last month or so that have filled my heart with excitement and joy and have brought me to tears.
Of course I still have fears and have a handful of things that I am not enjoying, like not sleeping, being extra emotional, gaining weight and feeling out of control of changes that are happening.
BUT I still wake up daily, feel my growing belly and praise God for this miracle.
I want to savor these precious tender moments that are such a gift.
