My sweet friends and family threw me a little surprise party Friday evening! It was so much! I hate being the center of attention, so I was a hot mess the first few minutes of the party! My little brother even came home from college to come to the party! Libbey and I stayed up past our bedtime to party! Hehe Miss Lib was loving life!
You guys need to run to Target and get the army green vest I’m wearing above ! I looooove it! You will definitely see me wear it over and over this fall!!
I’m going to my last two week check up tomorrow! I can’t believe it is almost baby time!!!

I’m starting to get in to nesting mode I think… I’m ready to get the house baby ready! I can’t believe he will be here in 6 weeks or less!!!

Hope you all have a great day and enjoy the beautiful weather!!

Sorry for the dark pictures.. I loved my outfit, but we were hurrying out the door, so I made JD snap a few pics super quick and they turned out horrible. A lot of my outfit is current, so I still wanted to post the pics! I love denim and white! It is an easy look, but yet you still look put together! I’m looking for a cute pair of maternity distressed white jeans to get me through the next few months!

Dress: Altar’D State, similar! (This is for sure one of my new favorite stores!!)
Lace Extender: similar here
Sandals: Go Jane(old), like these and want these!
Necklace: Sam Moon(old), similar!
(Sorry for the blurry iPhone pics! We were in a hurry!)

I am obsessed with Alter’D State!! If you have never been you need to find one ASAP!! My closest one is an hour and a half away and it is so worth the drive! I first saw the store like a year and a half ago while visiting family in Austin! It was love at first site! They have an awesome sale room too! While we were in Austin this past March, I picked up a few dresses that would be bump friendly! I have been wearing a lace extender under a lot of my dress because the bump tends to make them a bit shorter. The extenders aren’t made out of a heavy material, so they are a cool and easy layer to add to an outfit to make it longer or to change it up a bit!

Medal of Valor

Hello my lovely readers!!! Hope you all had a great weekend! It was chilly and rainy here.. Ugh, so we were stuck inside most of the weekend. On Friday my hubby was awarded the Governor’s Medal of Honor! We attended an awards ceremony and luncheon at the Governor’s Mansion. It was a fabulous and very special ceremony! I am so proud and honored to be the wife of a deputy:) It was very stressful hearing all of the stories as to why the men and women were receiving the award. They put their lives on the line for us everyday.

We took Libbey to a near by zoo over the weekend!! There is a fabulous zoo about an hour and half away, but we decided around noon that we wanted to do something outside because it was so nice out, so thought we would stay closer to home since it was already lunch time! Libbey loved all the animals! She was making all the animals sounds and would tell them all bye when we walked away! We plan on taking her to the other zoo in a few weeks! I’m sure I’ll have more pictures to share!!

We find out tomorrow if Baby P is a boy or girl!!! I’m sooooo excited!! Can’t wait to share the news!!

Thanks for reading!

I can’t believe it is already Wednesday! We went to my monthly checkup appointment this morning! We find out in two weeks from today what the gender of the baby is! Eeeek! So excited!!! Libbey had to show the doctor where her baby is! She also told us all to “shhhh!” when she was listening to the heart beat! She is going to be such a sweet big sister!

So, I’m in love with GoJane’s jelly sandals! I have white and coral ones and I can’t stop wearing them!! They are such a good deal too!! Jellies remind me of being little! My mom would buy us new jellies every summer from Gap and Old Navy! I bought Libbey a pair already!! Obsessed!!
