Week 21: Year 25!

Sorry for the late post! I’ve been a slug lately, to say the least 😛

Two Saturdays ago I officially became a quarter-century old.

To celebrate, my parents joined Christopher and I at The Kitchen in River North on my birthday eve. I’m told the food was delicious (solid food is still a bit of a hurdle for me, unfortunately) and the ambiance and service was really great. I’d love to go back with an appetite! I was showered with tiny presents for Baby Girl and myself, then headed home where I got straight into bed.

Papa and I :)

When I woke up, Chris had prepared breakfast in bed with a side of presents. We went and saw It Follows at the Music Box; if you’re a fan of low-fi indie horror films, then this one is right up your alley. I loved it (even if Chris thought it was weird.) We ended the night with slices of my favorite pizza and a split cupcake before heading to bed (if you can’t tell, sleeping is my favorite thing to do currently.)

A day of my favorite things!

25 will surely be my most memorable year yet. Next year we’ll be able to celebrate with the best present of all; our little girl 🙂

Stay Gold,




Week 20: IT’S A GIRL!!!

Ahhhh!!!!! I cannot tell you how excited I was to hear those three words from the ultrasound tech. We saw her perfect little hands and feet and the doctor said she looked perfectly healthy. Needless to say, the little dresses and outfits are already taking up a decent amount of closet space, and we can’t wait to meet this little girlfriend.


A little summer outfit, as baby girl is due in August.

They look like doll clothes. I can’t handle how cute they are! Look at that little dress!!!


This one made me tear up a little 😉 Who doesn’t love Babar?! Also I’m pretty sure I didn’t go 30 minutes without dropping a few happy tears all day yesterday.

I also did a little work on my registry…Why is everything so much cuter when it’s miniature?!

Oh my goshhhhh

Oh my goshhhhh

So excited to start getting everything ready for baby girl’s arrival. We can’t wait to meet her! Officially halfway there 🙂

Stay Gold,


Week 19: Oh wait, Just Kidding!

So much for my no-puking streak :-/ I’m learning how important sleep is when you’re pregnant; if I get anything less than 8 hours, or if I don’t eat enough right before bed, I’m a nauseous mess the next day. Lesson learned! It’s just getting so hard to sleep when we have our 20 week scan on Friday! So excited to learn the sex so we can stop referring to the Little as “it” and start calling them by name (which will remain secret until b-day 😉

I did manage to get out of the house last weekend and see some of my best and oldest girlfriends. It’s so comforting to have the support of such awesome women.

Another great woman (my mom) got me the best Easter present I could ask for: A pregnancy pillow! Yesssss. So nice.


Expect a longer, more eventful post on Friday!

Stay Gold,
