We had a beautiful baby boy in the beginning of August and he is my everything.

I’ll be back soon!

The Biggest Year

Posted on March 4th, 2017 by admin

Our 13th year together will be our biggest year to date. Not only are we getting married but we just found out we are expecting our first child! It’s so weird to type that out right now, I still can’t believe it’s even happening. This came as a huge surprise but we were instantly thrilled and are so excited for this new chapter in our lives. The new news definitely threw us for a loop; we had to move our wedding up 6 months, keep the big news (aka the reason WHY we moved the wedding) from everyone for way too long, devise a plan of attack for our living situation (this 1 bedroom apartment is cute, but won’t be for long), and plan for another human to join us in this world!

As far as the pregnancy goes, I haven’t been sick once (I feel like I won the lottery), I was tired in my first trimester (duh) but feel great now (I’m 16 weeks)! My bump is finally starting to show little by little and nothing high waisted fits me anymore, which is everything I wear. I’ve been trying to take things slow so I don’t get overwhelmed, so right now I’m worrying about what I’m eating and making sure that I’m listening to my body. My best friend got me THE BEST book for someone that knows NOTHING about making a human in your body, What To Eat When You’re Pregnant.  It gives you a week by week breakdown of what you should be eating to help with whatever is developing that particular week. I’ve been mixing the foods in this book with things like In-N-Out, pasta and chicken pot pies. I LOVE SALT AND CARBS RIGHT NOW! It’s been such a beautiful experience so far and for the next phase,  I have to learn how to dress myself all over again.

I’ll be keeping everyone updated with bump photos and pregnancy updates!

THEPENELOPETIMES_CRYSTALS

Last week I took a trip to Spellbound Sky with my cousin-in-law. I’ve been seeing a lot of people I know getting into crystals lately so I’m slightly familiar with them but also still confused by the hype. I’m in the midst of making my room a relaxing sanctuary for my boyfriend and me so I was up for the visit to this mystical place if it meant a more peaceful and relaxing space, I’m also up for anything and everything. Of course, I fell in love.

THEPENELOPETIMES_GALLERYWALL

We’ve slowly been making little updates to our apartment and our Gallery Wall is one of them. It is a project we’ve had on our hands for a while now and is finally complete (worth the wait). I might move the hanging plants to our room or just get a whole new set because what was once a holding place for them, is now growing on me for their home base.

Our photos are from our epic Europe trip we took about 4 years ago, the frames are from Amazon, floating plants from the flea market, and the deer head and stardust situation I found online somewhere which I’m now blanking on.
