Oh Joy / Floral Crowns

Oh Joy / Floral Crowns

At 37 weeks, this whole second baby thing is starting to get real. I'm excited, but nervous, to start this whole process again. I'm anxious to have a tiny, helpless person in my arms. I'm unsure about how it will be to be a mother of two, how to juggle that whole life thing, to see how Ruby will handle sharing her world with another baby. If you have any tips or suggestions for me as we crossover from parents of one to two, I am all ears!

Have a great weekend, guys. We'll just be hanging out and wearing these crazy beautiful floral crowns that Siren Floral Co. made from my Fox and Sparrow session yesterday (more photos from that soon)!

Honeymee Ice Cream / Los Angeles

Some days you just need a refreshing, cold treat (well, for me that's like every day). So yesterday, we stopped at Honeymee in L.A.'s Koreatown to have an after lunch snack. Sometimes simple is better, and Honeymee makes all-natural vanilla soft-serve ice cream with a just a couple topping options like a honey swirl, honey comb chip, or chocolate sauce with sea salt. It's creamy, refreshing, and not too sweet. We loved the honey comb chunk on top for a little extra chew and sweetness...yum!

Dressing the Bump / Fall Outfits

Alright guys, this is my last pre-baby episode of Dressing the Bump! We're at 36 weeks and talking about how to layer for fall with blazers, jackets, sweater dresses, and long-sleeve rompers. 

These videos have been really fun to make for you, and it's also challenged me to really celebrate that bump while pregnant. I hope you'll share this series with your sisters, friends, and co-workers who are expecting! I have one last post-baby bump video coming after our little lady arrives and will cover that "post-baby bump" as well as some great pieces to wear while nursing.

You can find all sources for the clothing worn in this video below...
