Autumn Is Here


The cool breeze that has finally arrived, along with Target shelves lined in everything pumpkin spice, certainly has my heart fluttering. It's been awhile since I've done a blog post, and today after cleaning the whole house, I decided to sit down by my wide open office window and write! 

Last weekend Ry and I were on the go. Friday night we went to Oktoberfest and stopped into my brother's restaurant for a drink and appetizer. We sat at the bar and I ordered a virgin Bubbles and Strawberries cocktail while Ry had a ice cold beer. It was fun to be in the ambience of a bar with my love. We go out to eat at least once a week, but it's been a while since we actually went on a "date" night. We talked about life and our sweet baby girl that is due February first. We talked about how it'll still be important for us to continue to do things together, like "date" and we aren't going to be afraid to strap our little Miss on and go out for some entertainment every once in a while. We can't wait to show her the world! On Saturday we went to the Plaza Art Fair and enjoyed the beautiful artwork and yummy food from the local restaurants. When we got home we still had enough energy to go to our town's version of Oktoberfest to watch the dog show. We'd never been to a dog show before and it was so cute. I guess all of our activity got our baby girl going too because Ry finally got to feel her kick. We were just sitting on the sofa and I felt her getting wild and I told Ry to put his hand on her and sure enough he felt her. I let out a little scream of excitement! I've been waiting for that moment for so long. 

A few weekend's ago we attended Ryan's cousin's wedding. I snapped these photos before we headed out the door. 




They had the cutest pink floral photo booth at the wedding. I'm not sure why the photos look so grainy {sorry} they were too cute not to share! 



And I can't help but snap bump photos of our growing baby girl. Every morning I wake up and thank God for her, our sweet miracle. I'm cherishing each day. 





My sister was kind enough to switch out our teal pom-pom curtains for pink pom-poms. The wallpaper that is going on the wall behind the crib arrives TODAY! I can't wait to see it installed. 




Her closet is slowly filling up with itty-bitty outfits. I stop in the nursery at least once a day, and I pinch myself. Sometimes it doesn't feel real, it feels like I'm living in a dream. A dream I've had since I was a little girl. And then I feel her inside of me. I feel her little feet kicking me and saying "hello!" and I realize how many prayers have been answered.



The two little feet that kick me from the inside and remind me of how very blessed we are. 


I've been eyeing this Maxi-Cosi car seat for months and then Nordstrom had it on sale for 33% off so we snatched one up. Check out their sale here.



We have bought most of the big ticket items already, with the exception of the rocker and stroller. I've had a few people ask about the bassinet and crib, and I've provided the product information and direct links below. Stay tuned as her nursery comes to life with wallpaper, linens, pillows, artwork, blankets, stuffed animals, the most beautiful baby mobile, and so much more...

Additional links to the baby furniture and gear can be found right below. I included the stroller we plan to purchase! Ohhhhh I'm so excited to push her around in the stroller with the bassinet this spring. 

If I could drink this holiday season I would be trying this, yum! 

This calm cottage just looks like autumn happiness.
