Maternity Stitch Fix #2

I was very excited waiting for my 2nd Stitch Fix!  Even though you definitely can't tell that in these photos, hehe.  I love opening up the style guide to see what's in store.  I loved the colors and was ready to try on the goods.

#1: Necklace
It was a long silver necklace, which I liked, but not enough to buy it. Return

#2: Maxi Dress
When I started putting it on, it had potential!  But alas, the band around the waist was too dang tight... I had muffin top and muffin bottom.  Return

#3: Maxi Skirt
I love me a maxi skirt!  I kept the one from my last Stitch Fix.  I loved the flowiness and the colors. I felt like I could wear this in the Caribbean, not like I'm going anytime soon.  But I can wear it around town and pretend right? Keep

#4: Black Shirt
I'm definitely a black t-shirt kinda gal.  I liked the detail on the neck line too.  It was so soft and comfy.  But at almost $50, I didn't think it was worth it.  Return

#5: Turquoise Blouse
Looked nice in the box, but was the most unflattering thing I tried on, yikes! Return.

I think I've reached my capacity for maxi skirts, so I left the stylist a note to leave those out for the next fix.  Hopefully they'll send my some cute shorts.  Gotta have some cute shorts for Florida summers.

The Ravenous Baby: 19 Weeks

How far along? 19 weeks +1 day

Food size: Grapefruit

Total weight gain: 9.6 lbs

Exercise: 4 workouts.... 2 BodyPump, 1 Scuplting class, 1 40-min treadmill workout

Sleep/Dreams:  I've been waking up more frequently, but falling asleep quickly after.  The vivid dreams keep on coming.  I had one where Sofia Vergara was having a baby and I was her labor coach.

Movement: Feeling little bumps every day!

Symptoms: I had another 24 hour headache.  Luckily it wasn't as bad as other ones have been.

Preggo Brain Moments:  Apparently I put frozen pineapple in the fridge yesterday, whoops!

Food cravings: I've been really into mustard this week... and I would love some nachos.

Food aversions:  Nope!

Maternity Clothes: I got a new Stitchfix, review coming up tomorrow.

Belly Button/ Stretch Marks: Still in, and none yet.

Gender: So... June 29 was the anatomy scan.  The tech checked all the parts and pieces and the baby is healthy, yay!  But the little bugger was being way too modest and didn't want to show us the goods.  I'm going back next week for a gender check.  I hope he/she is way more cooperative this time around.

thumbs up!

What I miss: Publix Ultimate & Italian Subs

Best moment this past week:  Seeing the baby kicking away on the ultrasound.  We even got a thumbs up!

What I am looking forward to this week: Hopefully finding out if the baby is a boy or girl!

Caverns & Cake

Those were just two of the highlights from our fun weekend!  Wyatt was ready for the outdoors.

We have a to-do list for our stint in Tallahassee, and we crossed one off when we went to Florida Caverns State Park.  I went when I was a little girl, but didn't remember much except seeing bats.

Even though we weren't lucky enough to see any bats, the tour was fun!  It was a 40-minute walk through different chambers.  There was alot of ducking involved, but nothing strenuous.  A bonus was that Wyatt was really well behaved!  He even said "this is fun!".  I think it helped that there was a 4 year old on the tour with us that he could stalk have fun with.

After the cavern tour we went to check out the Blue Hole, a spring in the state park.  The water was beautiful, but cold!  A few brave kids jumped on in.  We didn't bring our swim suits, darn.

We also had a great meal at El Patron in Tallahassee.  Is it "authentic" Mexican food, probably not.  But it was delicious.  Wyatt wanted to sit by all by himself in the big boy seat... that lasted a few minutes before he wanted to "walk a bit".  He cannot sit still!  The full review is coming soon.

Last but not least, I was a bad girl for eating cake for dinner one night.  Jay spoiled me by getting some yummy looking slices at Publix.  The carrot cake and chocolate cake really hit the spot.  We devoured the cake while we watched Nightcrawler on Netflix.  Jake Gyllenhaal was amazingly creepy in this film.  The fact that he didn't get nominated for an Oscar baffles me.

See any good movies this weekend?  Eat any good desserts?

Symptoms: I am SO thirsty all the time!

Preggo Brain Moments:  Left for my hair appointment... got to the car then realized I forgot my sunglasses so went back to get them... then got back to the car and realized I forgot my cell phone and went into the house again to get it.

Food cravings: Getting into sweets mode... and cheese mode

Food aversions:  None that I can think of this week

Weekend Recap

Hope everyone had a great Father's Day weekend!  We sure did.  It started out with an amazing delivery from my sis.  She sent us a Colorado food goodies box that was full of awesomeness.  I've tried lots of those yummy items already.  Everything so far has been delicious... especially the Blueberry Rhubarb Jam and the Coconut Oat Bar.

Saturday was a hot, hot, hot day!  But I guess that's Florida for ya. We spent most of our time indoors.  One of our highlights from the day were the Carne Asada Tater Tots from Taco Libre.  Talk about decadent!  It was HUGE and delicious.

On Father's day we headed out early to go to the beach.  The drive to St. George Island was beautiful.  Wyatt was super comfy and really enjoying the view.

I loved seeing my boys having so much fun in the water!  Wyatt loved jumping in the waves with his daddy.  He also spent lots of time moving sand from place to place with his "blue shovel", which apparently got washed away because I couldn't find it... grrr.

After a couple hours we were ready for lunch, and went to the Blue Parrot, one of the only restaurants on the island.  It was good!  I scarfed down some fish tacos and Jay had a blackened tuna blt.  Wyatt had a pretzel appetizer that we brought with us and some grouper fingers.  I can't believe how well behaved he was considering it was his usual nap time.

We got home around 3 and spent the rest of the day hanging out at home after a quick trip to Whole Foods.  Jay got a tasty dinner of steak and mashed potatoes... which he made himself, hehe.  I'm such a great wife to allow him to cook his own meal on Father's Day :/

What did you do for Father's Day?  Any special food requests from your husband or dad?
