oh baby | twenty-one weeks

how far along? | 21 weeks

due date: january 14, 2016

baby's size | a pomegranate {10.5 inches and 12.7 ounces - but he was 14oz on 8.21.15 so that is wrong- #bigboy}
gender | a baby boy!

feeling | honestly? exhausted. teaching/standing on my feel all day is seriously wearing me out.

maternity clothes | i was able to experience my first lularoe party on facebook - and i LOVED it. have you ever participated in one? they aren't maternity clothes, but fit any body type/fit so well that a lot of women are also using them for maternity. so excited to be able to wear the pieces during/after. let's just say that i fell in LOVE with the comfortable/cute patterns {and very cheap prices} and the seller {below} who was so adorable/did such a great job. as a result, i am thinking about having an online party soon. would you be interested in checking out the pieces {i have included a few photos in this post} but they are fabulous {skirts, dresses, leggings, shirts, etc.} for both women and girls. just let me know... and if you want to be included {and we aren't friends on facebook} just let me know/add me and i will invite you! it was so fun! note: they only make so many pieces out of each pattern/they change weekly-- i literally loved almost everything. you can check out more of the pieces on her instagram page: lularoecorissalangheinrich 
 i think i am obsessed already.
rumor has it- their fun patterned leggings feel like butter
i have a pair on the way and can't wait
probably {hopefully} will be living in leggings soon.
i just love how bright and colorful the pieces are...
{and all made in the u.s.a!}

workouts | re-joining my yoga studio this week! so. excited. namaste. and so perfect how this aligned with ember grey's twelve months of bliss prompt for september - you should join us all and get your stretch on. 

sleep | i have still been crashing. :)  

cravings | does cooler weather count? it's been close to 100 for three months straight. and a breeze in the air would be so refreshing- it's literally been stifling every day since early june.

movement | yesterday i could feel him while i was teaching! usually it is more in the morning/at night... he is becoming bigger and more active by the day. 
miss anything | moscow mules 

best moment of the week | yesterday afternoon my brother-in-law, bassey, texted that he was in charlotte for work... we met up for tapas and drinks last night. def. a highlight for this work week - i love that man. lots of great conversations and laughs. so glad he reached out - such great company. he also encouraged me to look for some good podcasts {any good ones you love/want to suggest}?
- the resturant, good food, in the montford area- charlotte- 
looking forward to | seeing my college roommate, meme and her husband this weekend {they are traveling to charlotte/staying with us saturday} on sunday, we are traveling to lake lure in north carolina to visit my parents - so excited to relax and explore this beautiful area of our state. and lastly, college football!! i grew up in ohio where {almost} everyone is passionate about the buckeyes {it feels so unified and i loved it growing up- lots of spirit.} i just read an article last night that said columbus was just voted #5 for tailgating - i miss crisp fall days on ohio state's campus... dancing, singing, beers, cheering, laughing- all day fun. {literally}
{secretly hoping for a little thumb sucker- so cute.}

next appointment | friday, september 18 {i will be 23 weeks} 

ps: stop in tomorrow for a giveaway!!

  1. I think feeling the baby move at random times during the day is the best, especially when you're in the middle of something with other people and you and your little one are sharing a secret moment :)
