Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale!

It's Friday!! I've been absolutely exhausted this week; I think the twins are having a growth spurt or something so this weekend could not be more welcome. I love those wiggly babies!

The Nordstrom Half Yearly sale is going on right now where you can get 40% off select items until June 5th. I've told you guys before and I'll say it again. Now is the time to get new jeans! It's the only time I buy jeans. Give me an inexpensive shirt, but designer jeans make all the difference. It's worth the investment.

Click here to see the other two items that I always buy during the sales.
Here are my very favorite items from the sale!

25 Weeks Pregnant with the Twins!

To my beautiful children,

It’s been too long since I’ve written you a letter and I am now 25 weeks pregnant with you. WHAT?! I can’t believe it. Literally every single time I walk by my reflection in a mirror or window, I can’t believe it’s me with that growing belly. I’ve gotten to the point now where even strangers can tell that I’m pregnant. You’re each 1.5 pounds and growing at a rate of 6 ounces each every week which means that just my belly is growing ¾ pound every week. Ouch! My skin is getting stretched and it itches a lot so I make sure to slather on my belly butter and bump gloss each night J Yes, those are the real names it really helps!

My favorite part about being pregnant so far is feeling you move. It’s so strange to me that there are two humans inside my body. I have 3 heartbeats beating inside my body. 3! Your little arms and legs are moving around a lot. I was in a meeting at work and had my hand by the right side of my belly and you kicked so hard, Goldie, that my arm moved! I just couldn’t stop smiling. Whenever your dad tries to feel you move, you stop moving. It sounds like you’re trying to give your dad a little taste of the ‘ol medicine, you little tricksters. He did feel a lot of movement last night right when we parked the car, so he caught you! You also move a lot when I lay down to go to bed at night. You listen to your mother, now. Don’t get used to that! Night time is sleepy time, babies. 

My least favorite part about being pregnant so far is that my body hurts! My lower back is definitely taking a beating and I can’t do as much physically as I used to, by far. I went to the grocery store and Costco after work the other day and I pulled into the garage and literally sat there for 20 minutes because I couldn’t quite summon the energy to move. I felt like I had run a marathon, although I don’t actually know what running a marathon feels like because mama ain’t crazy. Mama doesn’t do marathons. But I feel like I can compare how I felt because I’ve totally heard people talk about how they feel after they run marathons.  So, yeah. 

Your dad is just as delightful as ever and he always has me smiling. He sent me a little video the other night after he set up our back patio table. He said that you two and him were waiting for me to come home so that we could all sit out there as a family. He always fake disciplines you all the time, as practice, just for good measure. He told me last night that we need to have a strategy, like good cop/bad cop, that’s he heard that it works like a charm. Parenting with him is going to be fun. 

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how different I’m going to be as a mother now versus if I would have had you several years ago. I’m glad we worked so hard to get you here. There’s something about putting in hard work and then appreciating the reward so much more. I think I would have been more high strung and would have stressed over the small stuff a lot more than I think I will now. I think I’ll enjoy you more because I know how fleeting your childhood is going to be. 

Mama and daddy love you!!



Maternity Activewear with Mumberry

 Top: Mumberry, c/o | Bottoms: Mumberry, c/o | Shoes: J Crew | Lipstick: Gwen Stefani lip pencil (classic red)
I haven't been able to work out much since becoming pregnant with twins, but my doctor did say that I could walk about a half mile every day. When I go walking or when I'm working on housework like laundry, my belly and back need support! Mama can't do this 'thang all on her own. I love Mumberry maternity activewear because it has support bands for your back and tummy which makes doing just about anything more comfortable.

1. 15% off any size purchase + free shipping on $150 + online using code WORLD15 through 5/23
2. No delivery surcharges on outdoor furniture! THEY HAVE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE! (This would have saved me a lot when we ordered ours because it's typically about $30 at least on each piece) No code needed through 5/23
