  1. You look great!
    Have a great weekend

  2. For your adorable chalkboard, do you use actual chalk or chalk pens?

  3. I have been following your blog for awhile now and it is probably my favorite one to read! You are so relatable and are so cute in all of your pictures/blogs. I wish you, your hubby and baby G nothing but the best!

    Btw, where do you get your clothes? I love them! Your baby shower dress, Christmas picture outfit and this one are SOOOO cute!

  4. You are so cute! I've been following you from the beginning of your pregnancy and love your blog.

  5. do you use a stencil to write everything or do you free hand it? it is always perfect!

  6. Still enjoying your updates! You are 6 weeks ahead of me, so it's fun to see what is coming up for me...and all the ooh-ing and ahh-ing I do over your beautiful drawings!!! ;-) Love the jelly funny! I'm eating clementines like they are going out of style!!!! Looking forward to reading the last few weeks of your journey!! You look great, by the all the jelly you want!!!!

  7. Still looking great girly! Can't wait to see maternity pix..even though you've done an excellent job thus far!


  8. this chalkboard is darling, and you look adorable!

    (I came across your blog on pinterest, as someone pinned a page with the chalkboard!)

  9. I love seeing your updates! I'm only 8 weeks pregnant and dying to tell people so I can blog about it!

  10. Dude, You crack me the hell up! I laughed so effing hard when I read "feeling like ten pounds of shit in a five pound bag" That describes it PERFECTLY! I'm a few weeks behind you, and I couldn't agree more with that statement... Thanks for my new favorite description :) You look great for feeling like shit.

  11. How cute this is. My friend forwarded me you're blog. Told me it's a must read. I'm 29 weeks today and I look like 6 of you put together. Not fair. Good luck!!

  12. Awww you're getting so so close and looking great! I swear your pregnancy has FLOWN by!! I'm sure you would disagree though! ;)

  13. I just read your blog for the first time.You remind me of my daughter. She is 35 weeks and is also having a little girl (Rubee Lace). Rubee will be our first grand child. She has eaten mainly fruit, salad, baked potatoes, and pizza her whole pregnancy. That is all that sounds good to her. She avoids all meat, makes her queasy. She is definitely to the uncomfortable stage. Good luck to you and your little family.

  14. Gorgeous picture! You are just a lovely pregnant gal, hope you'll share the maternity pictures with us, I'm excited to see them!!!


  15. Hey I found your blog via Pinterest! I love your chalkboard idea!! I hope that someday I could do something similar, but we are going down the adoption avenue. Anyways, I read that you got the Jenny Lind crib. I think that crib is adorable as well and I am interested in how you like it? I know you haven't used it for baby G yet, but what are your thoughts so far? I also looked online and found it available in a few different stores...where did you end up getting it from? Thanks!

  16. I've been following you for quite some time thanks to Pinterest! I even started a similar blog so that my mom and sister can follow my pregnancy from across the country (hope you don't mind and see it as the flattery it's intended to be!)
    Anywho--> Today's pic popped up and I thought "God help me to look that good when I'm 32 weeks) and then read that you felt like poo...thanks for the laugh today, much needed!

  17. I wanted to first say Congratulations! Your blog is super adorable and I wish I thought of something this creative when I found out. Maybe for the next one. I'm so happy for you that your pregnancy has treated you amazing thus far. I'm 14 weeks and have been feeling awesome too. Other than my growing belly and a few aches and pains in my back and sides, I can't complain. Congratulations again and I look forward to seeing your little girl when she makes her appearance. Thank you for sharing your awesome blog, it's been fun following your and your hubby's journey!

  18. Congrats!
    I just looked through all your previous weeks of pregnancy and I love your chalk board idea~ YOu have amazing drawing art and fonts! So beautiful in capturing every month! Cant wait to see your little angel!


  19. You look beautiful! Happy New Year! Can't wait to see those maternity pictures. (Eww hope that didn't sound creepy LOL)

  20. where did you buy your maternity leggings? i'm only 13 weeks, but am planning a vacay in 3 weeks...looking to update my wardrobe. any suggestions?!

  21. Hey i saw this on pinterest and I'm just wondering where you got that chalkboard? I would love to have one for my daughter.

  22. Looking back on your chalkboards while pregnant! I so wish I would have documented my pregnancy with Brady in one way or another. You really were born a bad ass festive mamacita! #envyyourfabulousness ;) can't believe our babes are 1 and a half so ready for round 2! These pics officially have me in the mood for Christmas!
