Happy Halloween & 32 Weeks!!!

First off, I wanted to take a moment to welcome all of my new wonderful followers that found me through Aly's blog!  How great is Aly? I just love her!

Thank you all for the kind words about our videos and blog; it truly means a lot to us.  None of your comments went unnoticed; however, I'm still working on commenting back to everyone. I love inspiring others to capture the moment! I've been really busy these past couple of weeks, but have a lot of posts coming soon! For now, here is a bump update :)

How far along?  32 weeks (I can hardly believe it! Time is flying!)
Total weight gain/loss: 27 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yep
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Sleeping through the night (except for the occasional bathroom breaks)
Best moments: My baby shower this past Sunday! Our parents really outdid themselves! It was such a beautiful shower and a day I will never forget. It was one of the most special days spent with family and friends. A post with lots of pictures coming next week on all the details of our shower!  
Miss Anything? I miss my energy! I'm a lot more tired this trimester but overall no complaints! 
Movement: Yep, lots! I love feeling her movements get stronger each week! There is no better feeling!
Food cravings: Nothing strange! My favorite foods currently are pizza, chocolate chip cookies, french fries, and apples (probably why I've gained 27 pounds ;))! 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, but the heartburn at night is terrible
Have you started to show yet: Yep!
Gender: GIRL :) 
Labor Signs: None
Wedding rings on or off? On 
Happy or Moody most of the time: Very Happy!!!
Looking forward to:  I'm looking forward to so much! I can't wait to meet her and see what she looks like. I can't wait to cuddle with her next to the fire and kiss her little face! I'm also so excited to celebrate Christmas this year as a family of 3...if she decides to make her debut by then :) 

We also have our annual "Friendsgiving" this weekend, which I am so excited for! Each year, our group of friends get together and celebrate Thanksgiving like a family.  We all pitch in and make a homemade traditional Thanksgiving dinner. It's such a fun night spent being thankful for great friends and great food :)

Pumpkin Patch & Weekend Recap!

7 1/2 Months Pregnant :)

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year.  I love the crisp air, vibrant colored leaves, cozy fires, pumpkin patches, apple cider, Halloween, and the fact that Christmas is just around the corner, which makes me all giddy inside...especially with the arrival of our little girl :)

This was our first wedding-free weekend in almost two months and we made sure to make the most of it! Friday night we had a date night at one of our favorite restaurants. We spent the night talking, laughing, and eating entirely too much! We are making sure to get in as many date nights as possible before our little Leah is here and they become few and far between :)

Saturday we spent the day at Stony Creek Pumpkin Patch picking out our pumpkins and Leah's little pumpkin. It was a perfect day for hot apple cider and pumpkin picking. We then spent the night with our good friends. My best friend is getting married this Saturday so we spent the night talking about all things wedding! We even tested out one of their wishing lanterns, which was so much fun! We each wrote a wish on the lantern and then watched it disappear in to the sky.
Sunday, we spend the day photographing a surprise anniversary proposal for one of our favorite client couples, who have also become good friends of ours! Have I mentioned how much I love my job? Being able to capture special moments in people's lives is what I love most. We then finished off the weekend carving our pumpkins :)

Yes, I know! Everything we do is baby related...can you tell we're excited?
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well!

Happy Wedding Week To My Best Friend!!!
Jenny, I can't wait to stand with you this weekend on your special day!!! Let the celebrating begin! 
I love you!!!

Wine & Onesie!

This past weekend my girls and I had a Wine & Onesie Party! We took the same concept as Wine & Canvas but decided to decorate onesies for baby Leah :) We spent the night next to the fire drinking wine (and sparkling grape juice), decorating onesies, and having girl talk...what's better than that?! We had the best time and are already planning our next one! Thank you girls for making Leah some of the most adorable onesies! She is going to be one stylish little girl! 
I'm so lucky to have these ladies in my life and Leah is lucky to have such amazing aunts :)

Our wine markers :)
I decorated a onesie for baby Max! We thought these would be the perfect onesies to put them in for their first date ;)
The onesie I made for Leah! Just like her Mama :)
How amazing did these turn out? I have such creative friends!

 I love having these great memories of my pregnancy.
I say it all the time but I have the best friends a girl could ask for.
Love you girls :)
