Adventures in Pregnancy – 18 weeks, and babies first trip (in utero!) to the beach!

Babes first trip to the beach, and I think baby liked it!

18 weeks, I am still feeling good, but definitely feeling bigger.

Embracing it to the best of my ability because it’s all a part of this beautiful journey!


Feel Good Friday – Messy Hair, Don’t Care!

Some people want perfectly coiffed hair (and there’s nothing wrong with that – and some days that’s me!), and some people would rather toss it up in a messy bun and instead use that time to get some fresh air by the water, while the sun wakes up. ☀️

Today the messy bun was me! I soaked it all in and was talking to the baby, telling him or her I can’t wait to take them to the beach, to dip their feet in the ocean for the first time and feel the sand between their toes… so many exciting things to look forward to! 😍

(And no, I don’t feel weird talking to an unborn baby!)

Mamas, did you talk to your baby while they were in utero?


Friday Fun – A Weekend on the Cape

Happy Friday! I have 8 hours of work to get through, and then I am headed to the Cape for the weekend for my buddy’s wedding! I am so excited…. while I have been to TN this summer, it was a business trip and not one second was dedicated to relaxation or rejuvenation (in fact, that weekend sapped a LOT out of me, due to the amount of stuff we had to do, and the record breaking heat wave). I am also spending 3 days in NY later in August, but that’s for 3 Phish shows, which will be fun and amazing, but will also sap a lot of energy out of me (I dance and jam out a lot – I have problems keeping still!), and won’t really be of the relaxing sort.

So for this reason, the Cape sounds amazing! Friday night we will just check in to our hotel, and grab a nice dinner. Saturday before the wedding I am hoping to spend some quality time relaxing on the beach, and Sunday we kept open so that we can explore and take our time heading home – we have been so consumed with work obligations and wedding planning and running our businesses that we haven’t really had a chance to just enjoy summer, enjoy our last weeks as engaged, but not married, people. I think we need this low key time where we aren’t obligated to be anywhere, so we can do whatever we want – sometimes just a few free hours goes a LONG way! Plus, I am super excited to see my buddy tie the knot!

What are you all up to this weekend? Anything fun?

Here is to a great weekend!
