OUR NEWEST ADDITION

Our holiday was extra special with the arrival of our precious baby boy . FPS made his debut at the end of last month and we instantly fell in love. My heart has doubled in size for this little peanut. We’ve been soaking up all the late night cuddles and every little moment in between.

OUR BABY REGISTRY

As our due date approaches quickly, today is all about Baby S! I honestly wasn’t planning on sharing our baby registry here on ADOD since this is my first baby and I am not sure what we will actually end up using/liking from our list. However, after a few email requests to share, I realized a lot of you are also pregnant and wanted to see our list of essentials. I rallied all my mama friends to compile a list of their must-haves. It helped me to create my ultimate mama-approved registry. I am so grateful to have so many friends that recently had babies (#1, #2 and #3) to navigate this new mom life stage together.

HELLO…BLACK FRIDAY

Typically, I am not a huge Black Friday sale shopper, but with a baby on the way, a new house, and celebrating some big family birthdays this holiday season, our list is very long this year. Thanks to the sales starting early I have already checked off a few things I have been wanting/needing (nest thermostats, dyson hair dryer, and a Frame TV) and some really good deals on gifts! My wish list looks very different than in years past: think cozy pajamas (I will be spending the next few months in), a dining room table, and mostly just necessities for baby boy. Here are the sales I am shopping and a few deals that shouldn’t go unnoticed. I will be adding more sales to this post as the weekend goes on, but some are too good to pass up early!

GUEST READY WITH SERENA AND LILY

In case you missed it, we moved into our new home this weekend. I’m not sure I would recommend moving at 31 weeks pregnant to anyone I know, but thankfully I had a rockstar husband and moving team to help with the heavy lifting. To be honest, I would do it a hundred times over because I love our new place so much! We are slowly but surely getting settled into the new house and I am already feeling so at ease (even amongst the chaos).

WHAT I’VE BEEN WEARING

I have been meaning to write this post since I announced by pregnancy back in August. A few of you sweethearts have been asking where I have been, how I’ve been feeling and wondering where I’ve been. I am doing really great, and I owe you a major update on my second trimester now that I am almost halfway through my third (eek!). If I am being honest, I have loved slowing down a bit and spending quality time with the people I love most. I have been off my phone for the majority of the Summer and Fall to really enjoy this pregnancy. I took a step back from the blog because something just needed to give. Between work (which I absolutely love), buying our first house, renovating said house, and moving at 31 weeks pregnant, I just found myself not finding the right words or stories to share here. Now, that all of the madness is almost behind us (just in time for another big life change to happen), I honestly have so much to tell you! So, minus the lack of a good outfit to share, I want to tell you about all of the pieces I have been wearing the last few months. I almost created a capsule-like wardrobe for myself because I am determined not to buy too many things that I won’t want to wear post-baby.

A BIG SALE AND SOME EVEN BIGGER NEWS!

Hi!! Long time, no talk! I am really excited to share some big news with you! Between being 27 weeks pregnant (feeling great by the way!) and a crazy work schedule lately, something had to give, hence the radio silence. So…are you ready for the big news? WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! We are seriously so excited and have been moving quickly on a few small renovation projects and updates these last couple weeks before we move in. I am dying to getting organized and start the nursery. This house is going to be an ongoing project and I can’t wait to share with you! More on this exciting news this week, but today is all about my favorite sale of the year…the Shopbop Sitewide Sale!

It has been a minute since I did a deep dive on the site. To be honest, clothes just are not getting me as excited these days. I have been getting creative with shopping my closet, but I am running out of options that work. Now that we are slowing starting to see a shift in temperatures, I am looking forward to dressing new accessory with some cozy sweaters, coats, and of course, athleisure, oh and a few maternity jean styles. I already picked up these two pairs: dark denim and white (thanks to Mackenzie’s rec!).

I have been lusting over styles from Ulla Johnson, Vince, and Hatch. See some of the styles I already purchased and are currently in my cart!

Trends not to be missed:

Warm Tones | The New Modest | Untamed Texture Bags | Amped Up Earrings

Use the code STOCKUP19 for 20% off orders under $500 and 25% off orders over $500. The sale ends September 27th at midnight, so stock up on your favorites today before they go back to full price.

A LITTLE UPDATE

I am still over the moon after last weeks announcement and overjoyed by the amount of love and support. After what felt like the longest 4.5 months of keeping this little secret and an even longer first three months, I am officially halfway through my pregnancy (20 weeks) and happy to report that I am feeling great and a little bump is starting to make an appearance.
