I flew down to San Diego this past weekend to watch my Mom graduate from school and for the first of two baby showers! It was so much fun! It was wonderful to see family and old friends. I left stocked up on tons on baby clothes, diapers and baby cuteness. My cousin, Jen, made adorable diaper cakes decorated with hair bows, sock and shoes. My Aunt went to town on decorating and it could not have turned out cuter! And as always, seeing everyone was such a treat! SO happy! :)
On my way to San Diego with a cinnamon roll and a coffee! It seems no matter how grumpy I am, a pastry always makes it better. There is something super calming about flying, especially on such a short flight. I’m also a spoiled brat and only like to fly on Virgin America, so I feel like I’m fancy.
OMG they are passing out ice cream! So I’m cutting this post short.
Holy crap! I think my belly grew 50% in the past two weeks. I can tell it’s getting pretty cramped in there, my stomach has been moving like I have a medium sized xenomorph trying to burst out of it. Not gonna lie, it’s pretty creepy.
Last weekend was spent making crib sheets and blankets for the baby. I HAD to clear out some of my fabric stash. It was out of control! And slowly we are weeding out stuff we don’t need. I feel like we still have so much time, but I also know that time will fly by and all of a sudden I will have a newborn and crazy mess in my house.
I’ve been very whiny the past couple of weeks. I have crazy rib pain, it’s seriously the worst. And I have come to the realization that I am going to surpass my goal weight. While I have been pretty active throughout my pregnancy, I have also been eating more Mexican food than usual and binging on cereal (that’s something you can binge on, right?). Right now, I’ve gained about 25 pounds, which leaves me 10 pounds until I hit the upper limit of the recommended 25-35 pound weight gain for my size. I’m not too stressed about it, but reigning in the fast food and sweets will hopefully not put me too far over.
My workouts have gotten harder. When running or walking too fast I can feel the baby bouncing off my bladder, which is crazy uncomfortable. So I have decreased my speed and started to incorporate the stationary bike. I figured now is the time for low impact cardio and building up more muscle. I am obsessed with To The Sea, it is a great blog with great tips on staying active and workout plans from a NCSF Certified Personal Trainer and all-around awesome looking mom.
The next week I get to travel down to So. Cal for a baby shower and then one up here the following weekend! I have a busy couple of weeks in store, but hopefully I can travel and get some serious shit done!
Wishing you a happy Valentine’s day!!!

It’s the time of year to start hunting for new glasses again! In the past, I’ve tried Warby Parker and Bonlook (I still love my Honeybadgers), but I need a second pair for everyday use, so I thought I would try something new. So I’m trying Rivet and Sway! I’m a sucker for the “at home try-on” options, so R+S was perfect, also all their frames start at $169 (thats with RX).
Years ago, I bought a pair of Burberry specs and LOVED them but when my RX changed, the optometrist told me it would be $300+ to keep my frames and change out the lenses. HUGE FAIL. So, eff that, right? I love companies like these, because it gives you the ability to change out your frames at such a low cost. I do have a hard time finding the perfect frames, so I like that you get to chose 5 to try-on at home.
Rivet and Sway is a little bit different than Warby Parker and Bonlook because they are geared towards women. With the other two brands I had difficulty finding frames that fit the width of my head, which is on the narrower side. Every pair of Rivet and Sway frames fit perfectly! I haven’t decided on which frames I’m going with yet, but I’m really excited about this company (as you can tell)!
