Happy Monday, ladies! I'm so sorry that I've been a bit absent from the blog lately. But I have to be honest with you... I am 33 weeks pregnant, working full time, in the process of packing up to move next week, AND currently only have about 4 dresses that fit me right now. I've boycotted all pants (even maternity pants) because it's too dang hot here, and they are uncomfortable on my stomach. So I basically rotate through my dresses each week for work, which is fine, but I don't really have any cute or new outfits to show you. I'm not one of those pregnant bloggers who have a new cute and expensive outfit to show you each day, so I do apologize! Now, I don't want you to think that I'm complaining about any of this at all, I just wanted to share with you the reality of my life right now, haha. (I'm like Regina George from Mean Girls -- "These sweatpants are all that fit me right now!" Haha SERIOUSLY THOUGH. How do I still have 7 weeks of growing??) I don't want to stop blogging during these next 7 weeks, but there will definitely be a decrease in posts. I will probably only be posting once or twice a week until Baby Girl gets here, and I can't promise how many outfit photos there will be... because most of my outfits these days look like this... ;)
Anyway, I just wanted to thank all of you for still following along, even though I am so sporadic with my posting. You guys are the best!

Total Weight Gain: At my appointment last week, I had gained 25 pounds.
Maternity Clothes: Yes, although I have mostly been wearing dresses (non-maternity) because I hate wearing pants--even the maternity ones! They are so uncomfortable at this stage!
Stretch Marks: None yet.
Sleep: The last few weeks have been tough on me. I wake up every couple of hours throughout the night having to go to the bathroom, and also trying to find a comfortable position. My back has also been killing me at night, which makes it hard to sleep as well.
Movement: Baby Girl moves ALL THE TIME. I love it! Now that she's gotten bigger, it's more rolls and bouncing, as opposed to the normal kicks I used to feel. It's such an amazing (and kind of freaky) feeling, but it's the best. She also gets the hiccups all the time which is just adorable!
Food Cravings: No specific food cravings, but I have been chewing ice like a crazy person! Haha seriously, that's all I want to eat all day every day. (Yes, I am anemic.) Also, junk food sounds great to me lately, but I think that's more because I've been feeling lazy, and not necessarily a craving.
Gender: Still a girl... Hopefully. ;)
Labor Signs: Nothing yet. I haven't had any Braxton Hicks contractions or anything, but I'm not really sure when that's supposed to happen?
Belly Button In or Out? It's halfway out when I'm standing up, but when I am laying down it is all the way out. Haha!
Ring On or Off? On still!
Happy or Moody? I've been pretty happy, with a few moments of complaining about my back at night. But my husband is the best, because he massages my back and/or feet almost every day, without a single complaint. I sure love having him by my side through this process.
Looking Forward To: Meeting my Baby! I seriously feel like I can not wait any longer to meet her! I wish she was here already! :) We are also moving into a new apartment closer to our families in a couple of weeks, so I'm excited for that, and to get all of her stuff set up.

Happy Hump Day! As I'm sure you know, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going on until August 3rd, and there are so many great deals right now! I have shared some favorites below -- items that I have already purchased or plan on purchasing. [And also some cute items for Baby Girl, because we can't forget about her! :] I'm so excited for fall to get here already. Because that means 2 things -- Fall Fashion and Baby! Haha. Anyway, have a great day and happy shopping!

Okay, this 'Everyday Tee Dress' is to die for! Seriously, it is not a maternity dress, but I ordered a size up so that it would fit my belly. It is the cutest and most comfortable dress I have ever owned. It's a thin, tee material, and it is so flattering! I seriously get so many compliments every time I wear it. [H loves it, too!] The best part? It comes in about 10 different prints [for only $35], and they are all so cute! Seriously, go order one right now. You will thank me later. [I am wearing a size Large in this dress, but probably would have ordered a Medium for a loose, casual look, pre-pregnancy.]
Anyway, I apologize for the bad lighting in these photos. As we were taking these, it got really overcast and cloudy, so they aren't the best quality. But, I still had to share the photos of this amazing dress! Haha
Thanks so much for stopping by! xoxo,
