just when we were settled...

just when we had everything moved in and settled in our new place,
we found out we were getting new carpet!
the elderly lady who lived here before us loved 2 things:
roses and cats.

the roses...i am dealing with a million rose bushes.
i'm not a huge fan of roses but i appreciate the blooms i've been able to bring around.

the cats...her cats basically ruined the carpet here.
it looks just fine, but it is a little stinky in the master bedroom.
a good cleaning and even switching out the padding wasn't going to be enough.
so, all our furniture is stuffed into 2 rooms while we await the new carpet.

stuff from the bookshelves stuffed onto the fireplace.

this is our living room. furniture everywhere...yikes!

i feel like we're moving in all over again!
hopefully we'll be back to normal in the next few days. wish us luck :)

3rd trimester!

i am officially in my 3rd trimester now!
here's a photo of the bump (and sneak peek of the new kitchen)!
sorry for the distortion, i just put the camera on a chair real quick.
wide angle lens...my head looks bigger than my bump, haha.

so excited for this baby girl to come in 12 weeks!
i have definitely been nesting.
just a few more things to order for the baby room,
and then we have some furniture to put together and organize.
i started the new semester yesterday,
and it was bittersweet telling my students i would be leaving them early.
but of course it is going to be for the best reason ever :)
i just hope i can handle all i have on my plate until i reach maternity leave!

new & old.

i usually don't share my vintage & thrifted finds on the blog,
because let's face it, there is a constant stream of them coming in to my home.
but check this out!
white & gold leather purse from the thrift store, $5
i'm in love!

on an opposite note,
look at this pretty vintage mint green ceiling fan 
that was in our new home when we moved in!
i was immediately attached to it,
but the electrician couldn't get it working.
sad!!!! it was removed, and they put in a white one to replace it.

i have a few more things to do around the house,
and then maybe i'll share some more photos of our new place!

farmer's market.

i love that i can roll out of bed, drive around the corner, and see these guys...
(my adorable niece & nephew)
how cute are the in their pj's with their messy hair?!
we went to the farmer's market together for some produce.
why do i always feel like i shouldn't buy myself flowers?
i want to so bad!
me and charlie :)
this summer's been a fun one!

6 month bump.

it's hard to believe i'm almost 27 weeks pregnant now.
i look at my belly and can't imagine it 3 months from now.
it seems like it's quite big enough already!

here i am at 24 weeks. i've rounded out!
 i bought this dress (non-maternity) on etsy and was surprised that it fits my bump!
 i LOVE the back of this dress!!!

25 weeks...we had a pool party with nana :)
i can't wait for baby girl to meet her great grandmother!
we're so lucky to have her!!!!
and some more bump...

wish me luck!

packing up.

today was a good day.
i shopped a little for our new home.
i also packed up some boxes.

after packing just a few boxes, my poor little back started aching.
but i am super motivated!!!
our new place [google maps photo]

i also saw my new doctor, and i love her about a thousand times more than my last.
my last one was pretty awful, and my new one is so sweet.
i asked her what i can do to prevent charlie horses in my legs & feet...
her suggested remedy: a cup of milk with a cookie every night before bed. uh oh!!!
that's pretty much my favorite treat!
then she did a quick little ultrasound.
i got to watch baby girl hiccup via ultrasound,
and i got to hear her little hiccups with the doppler!
that was so much fun!
the doctor said baby girl is long. maybe she'll be tall like her daddy!
i'm 5'2...he's 6'1 :)
