Over the weekend two of my fabulous friends from Florida came to visit!! My sister and I have been best friends with them since I was in kindergarten! They moved in grade school, but that has never stopped us from seeing each other!! We have so much fun together and spend hours laughing and reminiscing!

I’m obsessed with anything nautical and can we talk about my wedges I found at Nordstrom Rack??!!! In love!!! Ladies, RUN to your nearest Nordstrom Rack NOW!!! It is still chilly in Illinois, so the closed toe wedges is perfect! I’ll be wearing them all the time!!! So, I’m still wearing my normal pants, but I have a feeling I’ll be breaking out the belly band and maternity pants in the next few weeks…. Yikes!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Summer Sunnies

Happy Wednesday my lovely readers!!!
I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t have too many sunnies! I’m obsessed! I mean, sunglasses can totally make an outfit:) It is almost pool/beach season, so I think now is the time to stock up on cute sunnies! I don’t spend too much on them anymore because I have a 19 month old who looooves to try them on… Below are a few I’m loving!!

New Addition!

Helloooooo!!!! I promise I haven’t forgotten about all of you!! My life has been craziness… My grandpa has been in and out of the ICU since the day before Easter. He is still in the hospital, but out of ICU! Lots of other things have made my life crazy, but it is all good. Praying that next week brings a happier and healthier week!

So, one of the reasons I have been MIA the past few weeks is because I’m pregnant!! We have another little one making his or her arrival in early October! I wasn’t going to mention it yet, but I’m having trouble hiding my bump in clothes! I definitely popped sooner with the second! We feel so so blessed and are over the moon excited about this addition to our family!! This pregnancy has been a little harder than when I was pregnant with Miss Libbey! It’s all good though!! I’m excited to dress the bump!!

Libbey has no idea what she is in for!! She is OBSESSED with babies, so I know she will be quite the helper! She already knows there is a baby in my belly and kisses my belly and tells the baby “Hi” all the time! It is the sweetest thing ever! She brings me baby dolls and wants me to put them under her shirt!

I’m going to do more outfit posts I promise! I’m over the first trimester hump. So I’m feeling much better and have a little more energy!

So, I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t live without wedges!! I’m obsessed with them! I don’t even want to admit how many I have! I have a problem! Haha the minute it turns 65 degrees I break them out and where them until mid September!! I think they are much more comfortable than pumps and can pretty much be worn for any occasion!! The wedges picture above are a few I’m craving!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend with family! This was Libbey’s second Easter! She definitely got more in to it this year! She was only 7 months last Easter, so this year was much different! She loved digging through all of her Easter baskets! She also knows what chocolate is, so let’s just say we are going on a sugar cleanse starting today! Haha I was unsure about how she would do with the Easter egg hunt. I thought she might just run around outside picking up sticks, but she was totally in to looking for eggs! She would squeal and get so excited every time she found one!! She loved it! My hubby had to work a double, so we didn’t get a family picture and he missed Miss Libbey hunt eggs:(

Accessories can really change an outfit!! No such thing as too many statement necklaces:)

My hubby and 3 other guys from our county were all awarded “Deputy of the Year” for 2014!! It was an honor to sit by his side and see him get awarded and hear the story as to why the 4 officers were given this fabulous award! They are definitely four honorable and courageous men!! Members of law enforcement have been getting a lot of negative attention lately, but people have no idea what they do and go through and how truly important they are! I’m so so very proud of our deputies and honored to be a deputy’s wife!
