date night / the daily life / wedded bliss

I’m convinced the main reason I haven’t found myself gushing about all things LA is well, because, I rarely get out of my house. I’m that lady that should probably have cats but instead has one rambunctious dog who she takes to the dog park every once in a while, goes to the grocery store, and has occasionally ventured out to a restaurant here and there. It’s sad. I would like to say it will […]

baby #1 / bump / pregnancy

I think my stomach has officially shrunk but maybe it’s because the pudge pudge bloat is *starting* to decrease and real baby is starting to emerge!! I was sick the other day and felt scary skinny again so I took a picture lying down like one I had from before when we first found out we were pregnant and sure enough <<somethins changed>> So. Bloat be gone. That’s my answer to this ^^ How far […]

Oh my goodness, I am so smitten. We got to see our baby again for the 12 week check up and oh my sweet potato pie, it has the most adorable¬†little profile I ever did see. It was so cute, squirming all around, kicking its lil leggies and *my favorite* arching its little back. Sigh. I honestly thought they were just going to check the heartbeat otherwise we would have taken a video, but we […]

family days / home / mmmm meals / the daily life / wedded bliss

Last week was hard on me¬†because I made the big decision to put¬†away my paints for a while to focus on other things at this stage in our journey. It felt very much like I was losing a part of myself or had failed in some way since I never actually got to see it go anywhere, per say. Hopefully later on down the road, I’ll get to do it again but for now, I […]

baby #1 / bump / pregnancy

Every day I ask Greg, “Can you see it!?” and every day he answers, “I can see you are sticking it out…” And then he proceeds to¬†try to straighten out my spine which then makes me feel like an ape woman. How far along?¬†10 weeks Weight Gained:¬†3 lbs.We got a scale! Greg insists it doesn’t give an accurate reading, bless his soul. Symptoms:¬†Ummmm acne. Fun. Oooo and! I can actually make it through the day […]

date night / mmmm meals / that dog Bentley / the daily life / wedded bliss

It all started when I was sitting around Friday night, dreaming up what sounded best for dinner. Gnocchi obviously sounded best but I had run out of time and energy to make it myself, as I am prone to do these days. Never fear! Friday is our date night and we haven’t had one for the longest of times so I asked my boyfriend on a date and tada! he accepted. I remembered this place […]

Please energy, please come back. Weight Gained:¬†Imma go with 4 lbs still… the dreaded scale […]

Things I Want to Remember

Funny I ended the last post with “and things went back to normal” because as you know, they’ve been anything but normal. I figured it’s about time for an update lest I forget everything as I am prone to do. I’m not really sure where to start! Let’s start here:Yippeeeee!! I’m so very proud of this pee stick. You must know, I’ve wanted to be a mom probably since I came out of the womb […]
