40weeks

40weeks2My little nugget is 2.5 weeks old today.  I found a couple of more photos from my 40th week that never made it to the blog.  Can’t believe I was 40 weeks then and now we have a fast growing baby on our hands.  How time flies!  Each day goes by like a blur and I sometimes forget what day of the week it is.  It’s been a lot of hard work, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  Happy Thursday!

Brand New Month

bumble bumble2 bumble3

We are now a few days into a brand new month…March!  There are so many things to look forward to this month: the birth of our baby (yes, we’re still waiting!), March Madness, the arrival of spring, Spring Break for those of you who are lucky enough to have one, and the list goes on.  I look forward to March each year mostly because I can taste spring hanging out right around the corner.

We were back in Los Altos this past weekend and found another great brunch spot, Bumble.  I first heard of the place from Jeanne of Shop Sweet Things, and the moment I went to Bumble’s website, I saw that it was a super cute spot right in the heard of downtown Los Altos.  The food was delicious and healthy and they even have a kids playroom attached to the main restaurant so that you can drop off your kids while you brunch.  Perfect for us as parents-to-be.

I also stumbled across this adorable apartment complex and had to take a few outfit shots…I mean, how perfect is that blue front door?

Hope you’re having a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!

Waiting

I’m about a week away from my due date so it’s just a waiting game right now.  Running out of clothes to wear soon!  I’ve been working from home all week (which keeps me busy), and putting on the final touches to the nursery.  I’m feeling excited and scared at the same time, but so looking forward to meeting this little guy!

We are officially in the single digits in this pregnancy countdown!  How time flies.  We had a cold front most of last week so I pulled out this cape to wear during a stroll in downtown San Francisco.  It was the perfect ‘coat’ keeping me warm the whole day and sure felt like I had a blanket on.  Capes have been a trend this fall and winter and I love how it’s a stylish alternative to a long winter coat.  As I grow bigger in the belly area, there are few things left that I feel comfortable in…this cape is a keeper!

25 Weeks

My changing body is quite obvious now and each day I seem to grow just a bit bigger in the belly area.  Can’t believe we are at 25 weeks, almost 26!  While time seems to go by very fast, part of me is ready to meet this little fella and get to know him.

This is a short week for most of us and tomorrow we are heading down to LA for the rest of the holiday week.  I’m usually not a fan of road trips, but am looking forward to it this time.  In my current nesting mode, a nice, peaceful ride seems more enjoyable than rushing through busy airports this week.  The weather in LA? (or actually Thousand Oaks where we’ll celebrate Thanksgiving) It’s going to be in the 80’s!  I don’t remember the last time I celebrated Thanksgiving in warm weather.  Quite a change from the east coast days.

I hope each of you get a chance to take some much needed time off this week to be with family and friends.  If you are traveling, wishing you safe travels to your final destination.

Movies

Happy Monday!  One of the activities my mommy friends recommended that we do before the baby gets here is to go out and enjoy as many movies–in theaters–as we can.  So with the big Interstellar opening up last weekend, we thought we’d go out for a casual movie date.  At the risk of giving up too much plot information, I won’t give my review of the movie here, but I will say…go and see it!  At about 3 hours, it is long, but a great film touching upon not just science and outer space, but also family and love, touching all emotions.

On another note, my growing belly is getting bigger by the day and I’m constantly updating my wardrobe to accommodate for it.  So far, I’ve loved shopping online — it really saves time.  And time is such a luxury these days.  I’m trying to push myself to do more posts going forward and apologize for how quiet it’s been on the homefront.

 

Hope you’re having a great start to the week!

Stripes and Kicks

Happy Wednesday!  It continues to be a crazy week in the work department, so I treasure the days (mostly weekends) when I have some down time and can just sit with a magazine and read to my heart’s content.  I know it’s only Wednesday, but I’m looking forward to the weekend already!

My bump is growing ever so much each week and today I hit 21 weeks.  I’ve been wearing shift dresses non-stop because it’s such a cinch to put on in the morning and 9.9 out of 10 times, the dress fits!  Here I am captured under another sunny day in one of my new favorite striped dresses with faux leather trim sleeves.  I am ready to leave the house to play some mini golf.  Since it was going to be a big walking day, I wore my Converse All-Stars.  A chic, but functional and sporty look, no?

Hope you are having a great day!

Day-to-Night

Keeping it simple today with a leather skirt and sweater.  With an edgier skirt like this one, I chose to pair it with a top in a similar color tone.  It is a perfect look for those days where it’s not quite warm and not quite cold.  Wear this with flats during the day and take it into night with some strappy heels.

 

Happy Thursday!  xoxo

My upcoming beach vacation has me thinking about flat sandals…so many choices out there!  I’d like to get a pair of neutral sandals.  Do you like any of the above?  Please share with me your favorites!

Patterns

I’ve never met a striped skirt (or shirt for that matter) I didn’t like.  This beautiful skirt from Banana Republic is so simple yet striking at the same time.  The tan stripes really pop especially when we’re used to seeing navy or black stripes.  I love playing with patterns and went for a totally different pattern for my shirt, but still keeping to the same color family.  It’s a bit of mixing the old with the new here…what do you think?

I hope it is sunny and spring-like wherever you are this week…happy Thursday!  xoxo
