30 Week Update

30 Week Update

Hi guys! Wanted to share an update this week, which marks my 30th week of pregnancy, and OMG. Where has the time gone?? During my first and second trimesters, time seemed to move much slower--it felt like I had plenty of months to prepare for the baby's arrival! But now that I'm firmly in the third tri, I'm feeling the time crunch and our pre-baby to-do list just keeps getting longer and longer.

Right now, my hubby and I are definitely in our "nesting" phase. We're trying to turn our small second bedroom into a nursery-slash-guestroom, but due to its size and some awkward window-and-door positioning, it's proving challenging. The good news, however, is that we've officially got our crib set up (and I'll be posting more on our crib decision making soon!), a soft rug in place and some removable wallpaper that we're hoping to install in the next week or so. The bad news is the room is also chock full of random baby supplies and boxes, so it's looking less than cute. Also on our to-do list: install some black out blinds in both bedrooms to ensure that we (and baby) can maximize on sleep. (Cause lord knows we'll need all the help we can get!) Hoping it all comes together ASAP, and that I can share some photos with you guys soon. :)

ALSO, I wanted to share a few shots of this gingham top, which is one of my fave recent buys from Boohoo.com--I've been wearing it nonstop the past few weeks and it was a steal at only $16. If you're a mom-to-be and looking for some affordable-but-trendy maternity options, definitely recommend Boohoo, though I'd also recommend sizing up on their items, since they tend to run a bit small. Linking to the top (and other pieces similar to those pictured in this outfit!) below! xo
