i’m finally finished with the nursery. and what a relief! thanks to my wonderful sister who spent a weekend helping me get everything ready and put in it’s place. we painted, washed clothes, organized, shopped for last minute items, and put the final touches on the nursery. now hopefully in one week (and not any longer!) this nursery will have a bouncing baby girl in it.

book of the month


the good girl by mary kubica has been compared to gone girl which is the reason i chose it for august’s book of the month. i loved gone girl (it’s on my top ten list) so i’m hoping this book is just as good…and as suspenseful! it’s been described as “a high-intensity thriller, a psychological puzzle that will keep readers on their toes” (book page).

happy reading!


one on the way

i know i’ve been m.i.a. for a while…okay, for the past 3 months but i have a very good reason. i’m expecting my first baby this august…and it’s a GIRL! i have been so busy preparing for her arrival that i decided to take a little break from blogging. there is so much to do before your little bundle of joy arrives and it can be exhausting. plus, you’re already exhausted from growing a tiny human being inside of you!

i’ve been reading up on the latest baby products; shopping for adorable clothes and shoes, of course; going to doctor visits; decorating the nursery; attending baby showers; nesting, which i now know is a real thing; and getting maternity photos. leo photography did my maternity photos…and she did an AMAZING job! i’m so in love with them that i wanted to share them with you.
