Best moments this week: I loved my chill trip to NYC. Typically, when I go to NYC (I work remotely for a NYC-based company & fly back quarterly to be in the office), I try to hit up a bunch of my favorite spots, and I usually end up spending a ton of time on the subway trying to meet up with people. This time at 29/30 weeks, I just wasn't up for that. Props to the ladies who live and work in NYC while they're pregnant. You guys are amazing. NYC is hard, as is, but it's much harder as a third-trimester pregnant person. All that to say, I spent quite a bit of time in my hotel, and I went to bed before 10pm every night. It was kind of amazing. One of my favorite things about NYC is that you can order basically any kind of food to be delivered to your door. I definitely took advantage of that.Read More
Best moments this week: We had a quick recovery period after our Texas trip before I left for NYC for a week. I'm working from our new HQ on Broadway this week. I got to see the new space for the first time yesterday and catch up with work friends. I also got to meet up with a good friend last night for dinner. She's due the same day as me, so it was really fun to catch with her and talk about our little ones.Read More
Best moments this week: Baby showers galore! We had two baby showers in Texas this past weekend with family and friends. It was SO great to get to catch up with people I hadn't seen in way too long, and so great to spend quality time with my family. Will share photos soon :)Read More
Best moments this week: We've been working on a name options list, and we currently have a front runner! We're going to wait to announce anything until after he's born (to make sure the name we pick suits him well), but it's exciting to have a likely option + some back ups!Read More
The question I'm pretty sure every single pregnant woman asks herself throughout her entire pregnancy -- am I actually going to do a good job at this, or will I be terrible?
I've never been a baby person. Puppies, yes, please hand me all your puppies and I WILL cry tears of excitement. Babies, cute, but please keep them to yourself.Read More
Best moments this week: My friend Ashley and I went to spin class, but the instructor didn't show. Apparently, he was in Mexico and forgot to get a sub. So all the ladies who showed up for class decided to commit to getting our workout in. One woman put on her playlist and we all did a choose-your-own-adventure indoor ride. It was surprisingly fun. After every song, people would cheer and shout encouraging comments. So funny.Read More
We've started working on baby's nursery! His room will be a mountain/woodsy/camping theme, and we're so excited about it. When we moved into our house, we painted basically the entire thing hues of white and grey, and we ended up with a lot of leftover paint. We actually didn't have to buy any new paint to make this mural, which was awesome because paint is expensive.
Neither of us are artists, by any means, and this mural was actually quite easy. It took the greater part of a day to finish it, but that was mostly because there was a lot of waiting for coats of paint to dry.Read More
