I have some big news to share with all of you...Matt & I are expecting!!! I am 13 weeks and due this Oct 6th. Hopefully this news will make up for my lack of posts!  My head has been in the clouds & on my pillow thanks to first trimester fatigue.  We are so excited and I can't wait to share this journey with all of you!

Our little baby

How cool is this picture in 4-D
You can see the baby's arms & legs so clearly. Baby was moving quite a bit during the ultrasound! 

Sharing the news
I made each of the grandparents their own onesie with a personalized message. Watching their reactions was so much fun.  My Mom plans on being called GiGi so I made this one for her!

 Prego Cravings  
These are embarrassing because I have such a sweet tooth!

Breakfast before my weekend hike
40 cal Vanilla Almond milk, Banana, handful Trader Joe's nonfat Vanilla granola

I will be a "Super Chunk" if my Mom won't stop supplying me with this brown butter caramel popcorn! Found at Scottsdale Marketplace


Green beans

Pecan pancakes for dinner
I ate them before I was able to snap a picture they were that good.

Health & Fitness
I have been hiking 2x a week and walking on other days that I have time.  Staying hydrated is super important while pregnant I learned my lesson last weekend when I almost fainted after a hike with my Mom. That is one pregnancy symptom that I do have is feeling dizzy & light headed in the mornings when I get up.
 I am rigid with my vitamins & I am trying to relax and get lots of rest.  Taking naps on the weekends is my favorite thing, it's truly amazing! As far as weight gain I haven't gained any yet but I am working on eating healthy and listening to my body's needs!

Happy Weekend!

My healthy dinner last night. Tried this Newman's Own olive oil & vinegar salad dressing, I'm a fan...it was simple & light.

I majorly scored this weekend & picked up this new Missoni jacket for $80!! I died when I saw the retail price of $795. It looks really cute on and I like it un-buttoned to show the signature Missoni pattern on the lining.

I plan on wearing mine similar to Kim K with a black tank, dark jeans, & heels. I think black & white is super sharp looking & flattering on everyone if worn right.

Just picked up this Charlton T from Stylemint in white with cherry tomato polka dots, thought it might be perfect for Spring. It also comes in black & white as shown below.  As always just $29.99 and free shipping!
