Maternity Digital LookBook - 18 Looks in 12 Minutes


Link to video HERE

18 maternity looks (20 if you count the jackets) in 12 minutes.

Some pieces I got at Goodwill, some from Rhea Lana, but most are from Target (Isabel Maternity and the Nines by Hatch).

All pieces were under $40. 

This is my digital look book of my favorite maternity looks, both professional maternity dresses and casual looks. 

It's August so it is HOT, but I found the shorts at goodwill for about $5. 

If you are thrifting your maternity shorts/pants, an easy way to find maternity clothes is to look at the top of the pants/shorts. They will have the stretchy band!

Cute maternity dresses, jackets, shirts, and shorts.



Bumpdate! My Pregnancy Week 38

Week 38 of my first pregnancy, 2 weeks to go!

How we were able to get pregnant after trying for more than 3 years - Clear Blue, thank you!

I have gestational diabetes, but I am managing it through food and exercise. 

My heartburn is crazy while pregnant! I'm in love with the berry Pepcid.

I had my baby shower and forgot to talk about it in my last video. I made a balloon arch that my Best Friend, Sarah & her mom Carol found on Amazon. It was so easy to make!! It is from @ShimmerAndConfetti on IG. I received so many good gifts! We had raffles for guests who brought diapers and bottles. Got so many diapers!! 
My Aunt Ginny made an adorable little closet/bin and a diaper cake and my Cousin Stephanie made a Elephant out of diapers with a pacifier as the tail! Sooooo cute!

All I got from the Rhea Lana Sale - I saved nearly $1,000 on baby items. We scored a car seat, stroller, and extra base for about $155, and it retails for $485!! Also got a Doc-a-tot, swan lamp, maternity dresses, baby monitor, books, and a nursing pillow.

Got more dye to tie dye while I'm on maternity leave. It is on sale from $25 down to $10! Run and get the bucket from Michaels!!

I printed my birth plan from thebump.com/a/tool-birth-plan

Amazon baby registry freebies I received. 

Bumpdate! My belly button has disappeared and I show off my growing belly.


Bumpdate! Week 33 of my pregnancy


Video HERE

Week 33 of my first pregnancy, 7 weeks to go! Third trimester!

If you are looking for a great group, join your Buy Nothing group on Facebook. I've received a lot of great items from mine.

Went garage sale-ing and found a bassinet, but the lady gave me two car seats, they are expired though. (They expire every 7 years). Not a problem, because I can trade them into Target or Walmart during an event and get either a 20% off coupon or $30 gift card.

My Grandma came to me in a dream and said my baby will be 2 weeks early...we will see!

I had to get slip-on Velcro slides. Found some Champion slides at Costco for $15 and got a black pair and a white pair. Found them later at Footlocker for $35-40!

My feet have been swelling so I had to get some compression socks. It has really helped the swelling! I have gestational diabetes, and it is not fun to have to pass by the delicious cookies and treats, but I have to!

I thought I was having Braxton Hicks contractions, but it turns out it is my Round Ligament...

Also, two other Rhea Lana sales are happening in my area soon, I will let you know what I get!

My husband got me the LeSportSac Diaper Bag by Rifle Paper Co, and I love it!!

And, a bumpdate!!

New Laundry Room Storage - Before and After - Mini Renovation


Check out the video HERE 

My Dad and Husband install cabinets in the laundry room - not a total makeover, but I think it is a mini renovation and major upgrade from what was there before.

I can't believe he found these cabinets that were regularly priced at more than $700, and he got them in the clearance area for $300. 

Bargain Buy!

He went in to get them, and couldn't find the ones he found online on the shelf, because they were in the CLEARANCE area!! 

What a lucky find.

The laundry room looks like it has custom cabinets, now, but they were the cabinets right off the shelf, and perfect for the laundry room.

Great looking storage idea, if you are looking to upgrade your laundry room.

It was a surprise for my Mom, and we let her pick out the hardware, I think she did a great job and picked handles that match really well to the new cabinets. 

What do you think? Let me know below!
