I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend. I decided to take a few days off from blogging to hang with the fam and relax. It was just what I needed! My rents were in town too so I got to spend time with them as well.
I finally reached the halfway point in my pregnancy. I feel like I have been pregnant a mighty long time but alas I am just halfway there. Good news is I remember the second half with Sterling going by much faster. Sorry if y'all are bored with the belly pics, I seriously took zero pictures while pregnant with Sterling so I have been trying to document this pregnancy a little better. So you got 20 more weeks of pics to come:) Wish I had more pics from when I was pregnant with Sterling so I could compare my belly size and shape- so curious what this baby is!
I have been living in the Tibi dress in the top picture. I made it my goal this pregnancy to buy no maternity clothes (besides my one pair of maternity shorts). They are so expensive to wear for only a short time, better to invest in something you can wear before and after baby. The Tibi dress fit before I was pregnant and still does at 5 months pregnant. It is a loose flattering fit and I get compliments everytime I wear it.
Lucky for you gals, the dress is on sale now, I highly recommend it. I also recommend going down a size or two, it runs on the large side. I got a 2 and I am normally a 4 in Tibi.
A few pics from our 4th of July- sad to say we didn't even make it up for the fireworks:( I am so tired these days and Sterling missed his nap so we were all in bed early but had fun at the Yacht Club earlier in the day.
We cooked up some amazing food this weekend. I finally made the Greek Tortellini Pasta Salad that has been all over Pinterest and we also made some ridic Chicken Gyros and Greek Salad. Can you tell this preggo is loving her Greek food?
I got Sterling the cutest shoes for the beach and boat. They are called Native shoes and way cuter than crocs in my opinion. They are plastic so they can get wet and dirty and are so easy to clean. They carry them locally here at Sugar Snap Pea (where we got ours) but you can also order them from Nordstrom. I love the bright neon yellow/green color Sterling picked out. My man loves some neon. They also come in blue and pink and purple, olive or black. The olive was our second favorite.
I picked up the most glorious veggies from the Farmers Market. I had not been in two weeks so I stocked up. We will be eating some fresh meals this week.
While Sterling stayed with my parents last week I finally painted our den and hallway, Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter. Let me tell you I underestimated what a task taping and painting such a big area by myself at 5 months pregnant would be. Not fun, but I accomplished it in two days and it made such a big difference. Plus I saved money by doing it myself! Revere Pewter is the best neutral ever! It really brightened up our family room and gave it such a fresh clean look.
Next up I need some curtains and small ottomans for the den.
Happy Monday- I know I am happy because Sterling has camp all this week at his school and he is so excited to see all his friends and play! I need to take advantage of the few hours to myself and tackle some more house projects before bebe arrives.
