Awww....shit! I know I said I'd never be "that mom" but damn it, it happened. Yup, I officially own a mini van...a Chrysler Town & Country to be exact. Before I get into the car itself let me just say that I have taken a lot of time to research the Mini Van vs the SUV. Deciding to go into the #minivanlife was not exactly what I wanted but after I did some serious comparing and driving back to back it won out. I'm a convert now...I know, it's so sad. But in all honesty the T&C blew away any competition in our eyes...maybe in five years I can go back to a SUV but for this mom of almost three, we 'bout that #minivanlife!
Since this is my third pregnancy, I already know it will be my third Cesarean as well. I've learned a lot about them in the past couple years and I wanted to share some tips that I've learned. Having a Cesarean is not everyone's ideal birth but you know what? It is for me and below are a few of my tips for how to handle the before, during and after effects of the surgery.
Hannah is just short of one-hundred fifty seven weeks old. That's fifty-two weeks in a year times three years and one week. How crazy is that? I'm a mom to a three year old...WTF? In that week I've found out that I'll be a mom to not just two toddler girls but a new baby boy, Hannah has turned into a "threeanger" and life is just great!
It's kind of crazy to think I'm almost 22 weeks now and haven't gotten this up but last week was crazy with it being Hannah's birthday and all the baby Gender Reveal stuff going on. So I thought I'd play catch up on how the weeks 16-20 of pregnancy went. Let's just say Week 16 wasn't off to a good start.
With this being my 3rd pregnancy I can say there is a lot I’ve learned when it comes to maternity fashion. I think back to all the money I spent on my maternity fashion with Hannah and I’m so sad. I didn’t need half of it! But then I look at the shirt I’m wearing today and remember that I bought it when I was 1st pregnant so maybe I made some good clothing investments.
My good friend Amber over at Bold Fit Mom is getting married! She recently asked me for some makeup tips and a possible tutorial on wedding day makeup since she will be doing her own. When my hubby and I got married in Vegas, I did my own makeup. The products I used in the video aren't the exact products but they were as close as I could get.
The most important thing to remember when you are doing bridal makeup is that you want to use as little to none SPF as possible. SPF is what will give you that white cast back on your face with flash photography. Which you obviously don't want on your wedding day! Check out my video below for how I got the look and if you want more information click the "READ MORE" button to see all the products. Congratulations Amber!
