The End of Pregnancy

The end of pregnancy is one of the strangest times for any expectant mother. You are anxious and excited, yet exhausted and ready to be “done.” You are all at once convinced that your baby is never going to come, yet you could go into labor at any minute.

Ingrid's Book Themed Birthday Party

Over the weekend, my little Ingrid Grey turned 2! We celebrated her special day with a book themed birthday party! It was a small party, but still so cute. I did the decor and food myself, making it a simple, but special party for my little 2 year-old. Ingrid loves to read and I often find her off by herself, flipping through a book. We knew a book themed party would be the perfect way to throw a unique celebration for our little girl. Here are some of the adorable details…

Our Babymoon Staycation

Pregnant with Baby #3, my husband and I rarely get alone time. Last weekend, we had the glorious opportunity to spend 24+ hours sans children! Originally, we planned on going on a little mini vacation for our babymoon, but decided to save some money instead. We dropped our girls off with their aunt and enjoyed a staycation right in our very own town. We had the best time! It was relaxing, mostly centered around good food, and much needed! If you are pregnant with your first or 4th baby, you MUST get some alone time with your love before your little one arrives! Click through to see how we spent our babymoon staycation…
