Maternity Photoshoot (Finally!)

Finally sharing my favorite photos from our maternity shoot in Palmetto Bluff!

So these happened over a month ago… oops! I’ll blame the holidays for why it has taken me so long to show them off. Major MAJOR thanks to my old running friend Allison for taking time out of her Thanksgiving and driving down to Palmetto Bluff to take these for us. More info on our time there

Maternity Photoshoot

I am 31.5 weeks pregnant in the pictures, and for those that care, the shirt is from Target, the shoes are TOMS (both mine and Yoshi’s), and my necklace is Landon Lacey Jewelry!

And now we are 37+ weeks along, and I’m even bigger (and not just because I ate #allthefood at Thanksgiving lol). 

Yoshi, we are so ready to meet you! Your nursery is ready, the hospital bag is ready, and we are just so excited to be your parents!

Thank you again, Ally, for the gift of these pictures. Thank you to our families for all the love and support they give and show us every day! 

A really quick Friday Catch Up: 

1) Not much is happening at the moment: Alex is working like a dog, I am trying to stay warm, and Yoshi is “helping” by giving me random hot flashes.

2) Ridley has finally re-figured out her boots, so all is well.

3) My hip and ankle are feeling great! KNOCK ON WOOD

4) We ordered the artwork for Yoshi’s room this week, and I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT IT.

5) I I’m really tired of wearing all the layers.  

Like I said, not much going on over here!

Have a great weekend, everyone! Please say warm, safe, and uninjured. 

What’s going on with you?

    Beautiful photos! We never did get any and it makes me kinda sad. We ran out of time and money. Current story of our lives. 😉 Anyway, Our bags have been packed since week 37 too and I’m sitting here pregnant as ever at 40 weeks and 5 glorious days….I pray little Yoshi doesn’t cook as long as my sweet Ruby!! I feel like I took my maternity leave way too early ha! And the hot flashes get worse by week 39-40. Night sweats are a real thing. Lol

      Susie’s brother was a week late, and I wanted all of my maternity leave to be after the delivery.
      After my due date came (and went) I I still went to work everyday. I’d walk into the office and my friends would yell out “she’s still here!”
      One of my coworkers had been a medic in Vietnam, so he was appointed to stand-by, just in case!
      Lovely

      I really, truly hope that Yoshi doesn’t make us wait as long as Ruby is making you wait! But you are such a champ for keeping it going and not letting it bring you down too much. I hope you get your little one soon!

I can’t wait to see this little peanut! 🙂 Remember, I’m “here” in the internet world if you ever get overwhelmed and need a mama friend to listen.

    Ok, slap me later, but….. the good thing about it being so cold is that you can add layer upon layer to try to get warm.
    Just imagine being 8 months pregnant in Atlanta in hot, humid August—-you can only take off so much and still be legal!

    Funny story –
    Little Bro moved back to Chicago, and bought his dog booties for outside (she’s only ever lived in Georgia and Arizona). So she wore them and hated them. The next day, she’s limping around the house. He feels terrible, so doesn’t put the booties on her. Then he says to her, “Wanna go for a walk?” and she starts jumping up and down and running around the house, perfectly fine. SHE FAKED A LIMP TO NOT WEAR BOOTIES. It appears that she’s smarter than we thought…

      Hahahaha, that reminds me of one of our horses–she would always get “hurt” at opportune times. And then be fine when the vets would come. #shakeofthefist
