Halloween time

For Halloween this year I wanted to be something kind of spooky so I chose a skeleton. Not very scary but just a really easy no brainer costume when your as gigantic as me right now. Steve painted the skeleton body on a black shirt I already owned that turned out super rad! I did a trial run on my hair and makeup last night. Teased the heck out of it and added gorgeous orchids for some oomph! I then practiced the skeleton face which was a hell of a lot harder then I thought it would be. But I'm glad I got to play around with it before Halloween.

A day off

Hey There! Man, am I real sleepy today. This was my attempt earlier today to run errands but I just got too tuckered out. However I did hear a funny thing while adding things to my antique space. A very animated gentleman was asking about the baby and told me that he has 18 siblings, all boys for the exception of one brave girl! His mother and father were married at the age of 14 and had their first child one year after. He has 80 ish nieces and nephews! SERIOUSLY? He then ended the conversation with "...And this is why I only have a dog!" This man was great! Can you even imagine having a family that gigantic? Let alone 19 children! Ill just stick with this one little boy for a while and be happy as a clam!

Is it December yet?

While geeking out on Refinery29 I came across this pregnant babe! Her look is super easy and not over styled but still looks polished. And to top it off her hair looks great! Hmm, do I want bangs again?

On a side note, I am feeling really REALLY pregnant these days. I'm in my eighth month so this definitely explains why. But man does my body feel hellishly uncomfortable! Achy feet, headaches, sore back, forgetful brain, oh and the full bladder all the time that's not really full... AND a very over zealous kicking baby inside me! But alas only 7 more weeks and then Ill be holding my boo knowing it was all worth it!

You are part of the rebel alliance...

Scooped these giant gems up from the Goodwill by our house for near to nothing! My Honey was super excited. Steves sort of a major Star Wars nerd... One of the many reasons why I love that man!

Yes, please!

So call me crazy or just pregnant but all summer long I was pining for fall weather. Living here in Portland, we learn to savor those mere few months of warmth but all I really wanted to do was layer on the clothes and emerge myself in Autumn. So far Ive successfully worn boots, wraps, sweaters and jackets almost everyday for the past month! This cold weather is the perfect way to spend my last few months of pregnancy! Warm drinks, tasty treats, holidays and cuddles..Hell yes!

Baby booties

Before I knew that Miles was a boy, I was really eager to start shopping for the baby. Moccasins were my favorite go to because I knew that they would be perfect for a boy or girl. Now I have a pretty cute collection of all different sizes for him. I can't wait for my little boo to be here and I'm so excited for him to where these mocs!

Very, very fine house

Since moving into our house almost 7 months ago, Ive worked really hard on making it a special haven for us. I'm a thrifter and a picker so naturally filling our home with things that Steve and I have collected over the years was exciting! Our home is colorful and filled to the brim with eclectic knick knacks and tokens that remind us of people we love and places we've visited.

I came across this darling house on Design Sponge months back. I immediately fell in love with how warm and lived in this home feels. The colors and small collections make me so happy!

Miles room

Here are photos of Miles' room. I have worked my ass off and am really excited about it! 
Lately Steve and I have been really stumped on Miles' middle name. We have tossed around a hundred traditional and bizarre names and nothing has really stuck for the both of us. I sort of fancy the two middle names idea so this was an even a bigger challenge to have to agree on two more names. After much discussion (and convincing) we decided to go with Waylon Wolf! I really really love it and Steve seems to like it too. So for now I think we are sticking with Miles Waylon Wolf...

Baby days

Baby belly is getting quite big these days! Holy Smokes, I'm 32 weeks with only 8 more to go. Incredible! Miles' is a mover and a shaker! His kicks are are becoming more intense and I can feel his body when I touch my stomach. We are so excited to meet him and see what his sweet face looks like! So soon!

A room for a boy (and me)

 So baby Miles room is coming along brilliantly! There are lots of flower prints, owls and bird things all around and I couldn't be happier. At first I was a little weary because I obviously took over with my feminine style but lets face it babe, the baby boo wont mind much!


I am a blog stalker. Its true. I have my long list of websites that I religiously read every morning and periodically have to check in the evening, so you can understand my excitement (!!!) to finally have my very own piece of the internet. My hopes are to have fun recording the last few months of my pregnancy and to share moments of this thrilling time my beau and I are going through. I'm so happy to be able to finally join in on the fun with blogs and meet radical people through it!
