Our Little Pumpkin is…

Happy Halloween & Happy Friday!!! 

No tricks here – just a treat! We are excited to announce that…

It's a Girl!

I’m so excited! 

Both my husband and I would be happy with either a boy or girl, as long as we get a healthy baby in the end. It’s funny though because I was totally wrong with my guess. I was completely convinced I was having a boy. When I got the call that she was a girl, I actually asked the lady on the phone “Are you sure?!” 

It works out well though, as we were very undivided about boys name but had a girl name right away. I may consider revealing it before she is born, but I’m not so sure just yet. ;) 

Here’s some of the girly things we have been given so far. 

Girl Stuff

My wo-worker who gave me all the maternity clothes conveniently has 3 girls, so she gave me all the cute clothes.

I am very excited to have a girl, as there is so much cute girly stuff! 

Sneak peak: there is a fun challenge post coming tomorrow for the month of November. Be sure to check it out! Hope your Halloween and weekend is fantastic!

Questions for You: 

  • Was your guess right? A lot of you guessed girl! 
  • What are your plans tonight? I’m handing out candy and going to watch Hocus Pocus :) 

16 Weeks & Why We’re Not Having a Nusery


Alright - I'm starting to feel like I've hit the these-weeks-are-really-flying-by stage! I checked my blog calendar to see what I was posting for today and was like, wait, 16 weeks already?! It's very exciting that things seem to be going quickly - for now.  Tuesday, I also mentioned that we are not having a nursery. Obviously, we will have a room for the baby. But not obviously is that it's complicated right now. This is the room that will be the "nursery."  It's not very big and kind of awkward. It currently has a queen size bed in it and not a lot of room for much else. My original plan was to … [Continue reading...]

WIAW: Healthy Work Lunches

Toast Pizza

Happy hump day!  I haven't talked about food much here lately, so I figured another WIAW was in store. Something I really struggle with lately is lunches for work. I get so tired of packing my lunch sometimes. Food prep is not my favorite when it comes to lunch. I like to prep snacks and dinner and that's where it stops. I thought it would be fun to try to come up with some lunches that are healthy that I could blog about and possibly give all you other working ladies some ideas. Or maybe these are the worst lunch ideas ever - I really don't know!  Toast/English Muffin Pizza  This is one that never gets old … [Continue reading...]

Confessions #1


I think I mean to start this post series a lonnnnng time ago but forgot about it. One of my favorite bloggers (that no longer blogs :( ) used to do a confessions post. I loved it so much. We all have funny things we want to confess, right?  While this series is titled Confessions of a Perfectionist, these all may not have much to do with wanting things to be perfect or being totally type A (or maybe they will...). I just thought the name was cute.  1. Healthy eating has been a struggle for me lately. I'm blaming it on being pregnant and that the only thing that has sounded good for weeks is Cheez-its, dinner … [Continue reading...]

Skoop B-Strong Review & Giveaway

Skoop B Strong

Hey friends!  I have a fun review & giveaway for today. The people at Healtyh Skoop asked me a while back if I would be intersted in trying their B Strong vanilla protein powder for recovery.

B Strong is made for recovery, building muscle, and absorbing the maximum amount of nutrients possible.
