. . . for Lauren and Lauren: I'd be lying if . . . . .

I'd be lying if . . . . .

                                               top: kohls  bottoms: borrowed   boots: old navy 

I said I took any more than one outfit photo last week.  The weather has been ridiculous.  Warm, rainy, foggy and gross.  That combined with Addilyn being sick last week and us rarely leaving the house, one outfit for Chris' work party was the best I could do! 

I didn't often over analyze the amount of times I initiate getting together with my friends, and feeling nervous that maybe they don't want to hang out nearly as much as I do. 

I said I really enjoy being pregnant.  I am so so beyond thankful that I get to be pregnant again and know how blessed and lucky I am, but I physically am not one of those woman that love being pregnant. 

I said I wasn't nervous about adding baby number two to our family.  I'm nervous about how Addilyn will adjust, if she will feel loved, if I will ever sleep again, go on dates or have time alone.  

I said I was a creative, fancy gift wrapper.  I wish I was and some years have big plans, but when it comes down to it, wrapping them with somewhat cute paper is the best I can do.  They'll just be ripped into anyway right?  What I do wish I had was cute gift tags, since I end up writing to and from with a Sharpie right on the package.  Customizing cute little tags like these from moo.com would be perfect. 

I said I felt super confident in the content and overall feel with blogging lately.  I think it comes with this time of the year when things are busier, other things are more important, sharing outfits is starting to feel less and less appealing and I'm lacking some depth to share.  We'll see what the new year brings.  

If I said I didn't struggle to be 100% sure on a baby boy's name.  I mean I'd say I'm 99% but it feels like so much pressure to pick ONE name and I am afraid to commit!

We find boy names much harder too! As a matter of fact, if this baby is a boy, I have a name I like that my husband isn't crazy about. But he can't come up with one he likes better, so I may win by default ha!

This is definitely a weird time of year for blogging! Excited to know what name you decide on :)

I don't love being pregnant either- don't sweat it. I always miss it when it's gone and I see other cute pregnant women but i can never find the belly as appealing on me!

Boys names I find harder because at least personally I don't like getting trendy of cutesy with them - it took us up to the delivery room to decide and even after we named him I second guessed it for a while although it totally fits him now.

Also just in general I liked this post! And I HATE this weather- I feel like I am such a meaner mom when the skies are grey!

Merry Christmas Katie!!!! I'll be enjoying the non alcoholic sparkling drinks with ya!

I had my first "oh my god we are adding to this family" moment last week and then wondered how the heck I would survive - it was a bad week!
I will say I really do enjoy being pregnancy even though this one isn't as easy as last time, I'm hoping it will pay off and be easier in the end this time haha
We really struggle with boy names! The middle names are set regardless of the first name, but the first names were hard and now I find myself second guessing my girl names haha

My gift wrapping is so not pretty--it amazes me when people use fancy paper and tie a ribbon bow on top. Haha. Also, I would be lying if I said I felt pretty right now (this pregnancy has severely damaged my confidence) lol

I loved the honesty of this post! I related so much to it. And I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't miss your blog. So I do hope you keep blogging, even though I gave up on it years ago so total hypocrite over here. Hope you're feeling well and you have a great holiday!
