Tropical Dreams

I hope you all had a great weekend.  I’m need deep in house cleaning getting ready for my mom and sisters arrival for the 4th of July and Peyton’s 5th birthday!  I wish I could take my own vacation after but that’s not going to happen.  Since I can’t take a tropical vacation, I thought Peyton should dress like she is on one in this Stella Kids dress.

Maternity Shorts

Guess who went to the New Kids on the Block concert a few weeks ago?  This girl!  If you’re an 80’s baby, you have to be a NKOTB fan.  I waddled my pregnant butt in the arena to catch NKOTB, Nelly and TLC in concert.  It was well worth it.  I wanted to be casual and comfortable so I wore my maternity shorts with a dress as a top.

Real Talk About C-Sections {Video}

I’m knee deep into the 3rd trimester! Woohoo!  I can’t believe I’m here already!  I have so many things left to do!  My baby’s room is a hot mess, and I feel like it will never be done.  My goal is to have it done before my baby shower which is a month away.  While I try to prepare for my baby’s arrival, I also have to prepare for a C-Section.  Because of the position of some of my fibroids, I’m not able to deliver vaginally, so a c-section will be scheduled.  When the doctors told me I would have to have a c-section with Peyton, it didn’t scare me.  Matter of fact, I was relieved knowing how the birth was going to go down.  Now that I have been through it, I know what to expect.  I thought I would share some of the things that they don’t tell you about having a c-section.
