Pro Tip: when you haven’t washed your hair in 3 days, but you have to look socially acceptable, giant headbands cover a WORLD of hair sins 🙌🏻

The best part of prenatal massages? You never have to lay face-down, so your makeup stays put 💁🏼‍♀️
___
{and LipSense never comes off anyway 💋}
___
Make yourself a priority. Be kind to yourself first. And don’t feel guilty about it. 
___
Because you can’t take care of everything else if you don’t take the time to take care of yourself 😘
___
And plus, there’s really nothing better than having your back rubbed in the 3rd trimester 💆🏼‍♀️

Have you ever put Hydrogen Peroxide in your ears?!?! 🤨🤨🤨
___
For the past few months, one of my ears has been stopped up thanks to all the extra fluids/congestion  from pregnancy 🤰🏼 but I’ve always been able to pop it and it’s fine!
___
Until Monday. 😧
___
I couldn’t get it to pop and couldn’t hear out of it all day 😭 so I finally made an appointment.
___
And then my husband convinced me to let him put Hydrogen Peroxide in it 😬 and yesterday morning I woke up with it feeling totally normal and not stopped up at all 🙄 so he basically thought he was a doctor.
___
But I went to my appointment anyway and I’m glad I did!! They flushed out my ears (which was the strangest/coolest thing ever) and now I’m good to go 💁🏼‍♀️
___
Apparently the Hydrogen Peroxide just loosened everything up so that it felt better today. Who knew?!

Social media is great, but sometimes it’s also terrible 🤷🏼‍♀️
___
There are people who claim to be able to lead you, but haven’t helped themselves. 😏
Those who say they can help you financially when they are still under a mountain of their own debt 🙄
People who post about being happy and loving, but in real life are anything but... 😳
___
Don’t compare yourself to the highlight reel that some choose to post. More than likely, it’s not real life 😉
___
Find what makes your life FEEL good on the inside and stop worrying about what it LOOKS like to anyone else. #youdoyoubooboo

If you had told me a year ago that when we got pregnant my main source of physical activity would be WALKING... I probably would have laughed. And maybe rolled my eyes 🙄
___
But life is funny and restrictions are serious business 😐 My goal isn’t to be the biggest and the baddest, it’s just to stay active and MOVE.
___
Find the thing you CAN do and don’t let what you CANNOT do interfere 👊🏻

For everyone asking how the nursery is coming along... it’s not 😂🤷🏼‍♀️
___
BUT my mom came over today so that we could clean! Maybe later this week we will start putting it together 😬
___
I like to think of it as “not stressing” instead of “procrastinating” because that sounds a lot better 😃 #attitude

“I believe what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at the odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us.”
___
The best dad, hunting partner, crazy dancer, listener, encourager, voice of reason, and all-around-human and I’M his favorite child 😇
*impromptu picture thanks to my husband, but it was my favorite from yesterday 😂😂

32 week appointment and the doctor had to go deliver, so I guess it’s time for a #bumpdate 🤷🏼‍♀️
___
Ps, that’s gotta be a pretty big jicama 😳
___
Due date countdown: 7 weeks and 3 days. 
People have gotten nurseries together in less time, right?! 😂

Have y’all tried this?!
___
Since cooking is the last thing I want to be doing most days, I’ve been trying to find some quick and easy options 😬
___
Tried this yesterday for lunch on top of some leftover roasted asparagus and 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻 ___
The only ingredients are salmon, EVOO and sea salt 🙌🏻
___
Plus, 14 grams of protein in one pouch 🤰🏼

Y’all... 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Who did you have in the delivery room??
___
Luckily John and I are on the same page - nobody else in the room! But this made me laugh SO hard 😂

Sure have enjoyed my walking partner the last few mornings 😍 we racked up 5k steps before hitting up the breakfast buffet 🙌🏻
___
Our original plan was to go to Wyoming this summer, BUT we didn’t know then that we would be 30+ weeks pregnant 😬
___
So we stayed close to home instead, but still got to hike and eat and laugh and relax! 
___
If you can’t take a big trip, take a little trip. Take a day trip. Go on an out-of-town breakfast date. Make the memories whenever and however you can.
___
Because it doesn’t matter where you go or what you do. It matters who you’re with 😘

All I wanna know is...
___
Who is going to make this for me for breakfast everyday once we leave?!
___
And why does the regular coffee show up piping hot, but the decaf is already room temperature 🙄

32 weeks {8 months} yesterday, which means 8ish weeks to go!
___
So far I’ve gained right at 20 pounds, but after breakfast and dinner buffets on our trip, I’m thinking it’s another 20 just this week 😬🤷🏼‍♀️
___
BUT we did get lots of walking in and sweated it out at the pool, so #balance + Vitamin D for the win 🙌🏻

“Once you’re parents, your marriage matters MORE, not less. Because now, other people are counting on you.”
___
Taking a few days of just us. And also lots of food. 😬
___
57ish days until we add a tiny person to the mix and become mom and dad 🧔🏻🤰🏼👶🏼

#Balayage update 💁🏼‍♀️
___
Doesn’t look much different, but he said next time we will see more of a difference! 😬
___
Side note, is it acceptable to wash and wear the same outfit 4 times a week when pregnant? Because I’m 100% wearing this again today 😂🤷🏼‍♀️

Don’t you just love it when you randomly make up a recipe and it turns out aaaaaaahamazing?! 😍
___
The hubs approved 🧔🏻
___
{Secret ingredient - plain Greek yogurt 😬 don’t tell him! 🤫}

“You haven’t even been crazy or anything.”
Pregnancy *compliment* from my husband 😐😂
___
Although I’m feeling mostly good now, I would be lying if I said this entire journey has been a breeze 🤰🏼I always thought that when we got pregnant, I would just continue doing all the things I had been doing... 😂😂😂
___
There were WEEKS when I survived on dry Cheerios, bananas and broth. I ended up with a sinus infection and didn’t move from the couch for over a week. 
___
This pregnancy was a bit of a surprise to us {more on that another time 😬} and I was nervous about everything!! I was so scared to take any medicine and remember crying to my sister on the phone because I couldn’t eat anything I was reading that I SHOULD be eating and was averaging about 200 steps a day 😑
___
I was given major workout restrictions by my doctor, which was a hard pill to swallow. But y’all... if there’s ever a time to give yourself grace, it’s while you’re growing a human! 
___
Over the last few months I’ve learned to listen to my body. I’ve learned that it’s OK to take it easy (hello daily naps 😴). You don’t HAVE to push yourself just because you see people more pregnant than you running marathons and doing CrossFit. 🙅🏼‍♀️ and if all you can eat is steak and potatoes, you eat steak and potatoes and take your vitamin! You do YOU.
___
AND, most importantly, it’s ok to love your body just the way it is exactly at this moment. Pregnant or not. 😉

SERIOUS QUESTION
___
I only have 2 more hair appointments before baby comes! One is today 😬
___
I always get foil highlights, BUT I’m worried that after baby comes, I won’t be getting my hair done as often and my roots will be atrocious 😬 
___
So I’m thinking of trying balayage in hopes of my roots being a little less noticeable 🤷🏼‍♀️ ___
Thoughts? Have you ever done balayage?? Which would you shoot for?! I’m thinking B today and A next time? I KNOW NOTHING!!
