Well, if I've ever made a hack job of a sewing project, this would be it. I threw caution (and level headedness) to the wind and just went for it to make this nursing nightgown. I am sharing this project because, in the end, it turned out. But for anyone wanting to replicate it, just … Continue reading Nursing Nightgown (a Recklessly Hacked Hinterland)
This post is waaaaay outside my norm. I've been thinking about how I've gotten a pretty good handful of new shoes over the last year and a half or so. Most of these were purchased only after months (sometimes years) of debate. I am not an impulse shopper by any means. I know there are … Continue reading Shoes
Hello, everyone! Sorry it's been awhile since I've posted! Our summers tend to be more relaxed (read: less structured), so I have a more difficult time getting things done. No regrets about that (we're happy to have Ben's schedule ease up during the summer), but I hadn't been planning on there being such a big … Continue reading Maternity Me-Mades (from patterns that aren’t maternity)
She's here! Our sweet little baby number 2 is here and we are in love! We named her Greta Jean. We had a hard time choosing a name this time around but Greta was a name that we kept coming back to and, when she was born, we knew it fit. And Jean is after … Continue reading She’s Here!
Belly: I'm huge. Well, technically I'm measuring right where I should be. But I feel huge. Exercise: I'm still running! Which is a huge miracle!

I don't go far and I walk if … Continue reading Third Trimester: 37 Weeks
A few weeks ago, I grabbed some Men's shirts off the clearance rack at Old Navy, determined to refashion them into maternity shirts. And I did. And they turned out great. And I might blog about them later. But it wasn't exactly what you would call a quick project. It required a lot of steps-cutting, … Continue reading Regular Tee to Maternity Tee: Easiest Ever Maternity Shirt Refashion
Somehow I'm already 27 weeks which means that, come Saturday, I will officially be in the third trimester! Super crazy! Here's how Trimester Two went: Belly? I mentioned it last time, but I seriously feel super huge this time around (which I think is directly related to my lack of belly pics this trimester). On instagram … Continue reading Second Trimester: 27 Weeks
I consider myself to be a pretty low key kind of person. And truth be told, I'm also kinda stingy. So my response to most "absolutely 100% essential can't-live-without" pregnancy items was to figure I'd survive without it. Buuuuuuut....when my sister in law offered to let me try out her pregnancy pillow, I took her … Continue reading DIY Pregnancy Pillow
