This is the only picture I took this weekend. That should tell you exactly how our weekend was: relaxing. 

Brandon got some great news {I'll share more later}, so we went to a nice dinner to celebrate. And because we're party animals, we came home and fell asleep on the couch. 

It was a rainy, icky Saturday, so Brandon and I did something we never do: we had a breakfast/coffee date at a local, family-owned coffee shop around the corner from our house. I loved it. I never drink coffee during the week, but the weather just begged for it. 

We spent the rest of the morning finding {and purchasing} new nightstands for our bedroom; buying a clothes hamper and a toy basket for the baby's room; fall-izing our house with pumpkin candles and Wallflowers from Bath & Body Works; and going to the grocery store. 

I even found cute little locker storage baskets {Etsy} and a pouf {Kohl's} for the baby's room, and it gave me a bit more comfort knowing all we have to do now is get the furniture in there and add a few accents on the walls and tabletops. I love being prepared, so it gave me a huge relief. 

We went to church, had lunch at a cute little bakery across from church and I ventured to Target to find a few maternity tops. Can I please tell you that nothing diminishes my self-esteem more than trying to find cute, work-appropriate maternity clothes? I can't wear jeans to work {we're pretty business dress in my office...think suits} so it's hard. For those who can wear jeans and flats...I envy you. 

According to my husband, "You need to start your own maternity line." Ha! I wish. 

Hope y'all have a wonderful week! 


  1. Sounds like a fun weekend! It's so nice to relax...that coffee looks amazing. Hope you can find some cute things. I've heard that from so many pregnant women that it's terrible finding clothes. Good luck!

  2. Just get regular clothes in bigger sizes. I went to outlet malls and racked up on tops in bigger sizes. No need in paying full price. Also, don't forget about ASOS. :)
