Welcoming a baby…

We finally hit the halfway mark in this pregnancy and I’m a little shocked at how fast it is going! Finding out the gender is definitely one of my favorite parts.  Not just because of the gender, but also because the ultrasound is so special to see.  I love seeing how everything is forming, down to the chambers in the heart.  Listening to that sweet little heart beat while it pumps away is the most comforting thing.  I crave that, as I have mourned the absence of it with many of my close friends and family.  My heart always goes out to them.

Thankfully everything is looking great so far, and I couldn’t love this sweet babe any more!  M and V have been casting their votes on gender for months, and it has been pretty split.  That’s how Brian and I have felt also.  We will take what we get and be so happy about it! So far all three of my pregnancies have been very different from each other so it’s hard to predict based on that.  Doesn’t stop us from speculating though 🙂

Ok, enough lollygagging! Come end of April we are so excited to welcome a baby….

GIRL!

Yes, a house full of girls! I actually wrote about some of my feelings on being a “girl maker” not too long ago. If you want to read it go HERE

We decided for this reveal to just fully embrace the PINK!  Even Brian haha!  He grew up the only boy with four sisters so he is destined to be surrounded by girls forever.  He is an amazing dad and the girls already battle for his lap space and attention, so I’m not sure how he will fit another one in there.  I have faith he will figure it out 🙂 Just look how he juggles everything now!

P.S. He’s such a good sport for letting me dye his hair pink haha what a guy!

My talented friend Corrie Butler took these for us and she made it so fun! She just let us be our goofy selves and captured our chaos perfectly.  She is wonderful!View More: http://corriebutlerphotography.pass.us/poulsen-gender-revealView More: http://corriebutlerphotography.pass.us/poulsen-gender-reveal

We are so excited, and feel very blessed to have another sweet girl joining our family.  I also feel so blessed to have your love and support! I have been humbled by your kind words.  I’m just feeling grateful these days! Thank you for everything.

Lady in Red

Haha I didn’t know what to title this one.  All that kept coming to my head were songs about red dresses 😀 Ha so we will just go with it!

On that note, this red dress is the best ever! It is thick enough to wear without layering, the color is perfect, and the material moves so well.  Also, it is like wearing a giant blanket!  I love having something that is so easy to throw on, comfortable, and looks good.

r2-1-of-1 I often wear this dress on its own, but here I paired it with a jacket.  One of my favorite parts of it is the asymmetrical hemline.  I love how it is longer on the sides.  I wear it with boots a lot, and I also love how it looks with heels! Red long sleeve floor length dress styled with strappy leopard print heels and a leather jacket.

In celebration of cyber Monday, SheIn is offering a free gift for every purchase made tomorrow.  I have loved everything I’ve ordered!  Make sure you double check sizing.  r4-1-of-1

I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving with the people you love most! XO

Little Besties

One of my motherhood dreams has always been for my kids to be good friends.  It melts my heart to see it happening with these two babes! I worried a little bit when I was pregnant with Viv.  They are five years apart and I thought it might make it hard for them to become good friends, but I was totally wrong! They are the most darling little friends and want to be together all the time.  I love it!

Most days Myla begs to get Viv dressed and pick out her clothes.  I let her for the most part, but sometimes the outfits get a little crazy haha! I love having things like this cute poppy jumper from Little Cottonwood that make it easy and look adorable.  PS it is on sale 😉viv1 (1 of 1)

I tried to play with Viv a bit, but she was NOT having it haha! She just wanted her sister, or to be doing her own thing.  Unless I bribed her with a fruit snack haha.  She still had a bit of a scowl, though.  See pic below 🙂

My flowy white top is from Cozy Threads Boutique, and I am loving it.  I can’t get enough of tops that are comfortable and easy, while still looking good! Check out their site and use code COZY25 for 25% off your purchase!

Flowy white top! Women's summer and spring style :)

Hope you have an amazing week! I’m hoping to get some deep cleaning done, and possibly even some reorganizing if I’m feeling extra ambitious haha!

When I was pregnant with my first daughter, I remember the moment I realized how important my diaper bag would be and how much I instantly cared so much about it! I needed it to be so many things, but most of all, I needed it to look amazing.  It wasn’t until after I had my baby that I realized the functionality is just as important. I wish I had this bag and clutch from Seaport Stitches when I started my mom journey!  I have been obsessing over it from afar for a long time and now I get compliments on it daily.  It definitely checks the “looks amazing” box! The best part about it, though, it also checks the functionality box! Some of my favorite features include the zipper across the top (keeping those sweet baby hands from emptying it all day) the pockets lining the inside, the large outside pockets, and best of all-> the convertible strap.  It can be a backpack or a messenger bag style just by adjusting the clips. I never knew I could be so in love with a backpack!

My other new obsession is my diaper clutch.  I almost can’t believe how much I love it.  My favorite part (other than how stinkin cute it is) is the built in pocket for wipes! No more carrying around a separate wipe container, and diapers, and a wallet, and your phone, and your lipgloss, and your keys…goodness! This beauty fits IT ALL in one darling little package.  I carry it with me all the time and when I also need toys, food, books, blankets (I could go on and on) I just throw it in my diaper bag as well.  Honestly, it has made those quick trips to the store, school, or friend’s house so much nicer! They come in lots of cute designs too.  Love love love! Make sure you check out these bags, they sell out crazy fast.  I can totally see why!

Hope you enjoy your day! XO Thank you to Seaport Stitches for sponsoring this post! Also, thank you to Stayc Smart Photography for the photos.  Check her out on instagram @staycsmartphotography

Little Head to Toe GIVEAWAY!

 

I have yet to find a person that doesn’t think baby shoes are the cutest ever.  They just are. I love them, but I have a hard time keeping them on Viv’s feet.  She will kick and pull on them until she gets them off!  BUUUT…not these cute little shoes from Little Head to Toe!  She wears them all day and loves it.  I don’t blame her.  They look amazingly comfortable, and adorable. What more could she want from shoes!?

Saturday Market

DSC_0492

We had such a fun weekend with our friends Morgan and BreAna! We stayed up way too late, and crammed way too much in, but it was totally worth it.  On Saturday morning we went to the downtown market.  I love all the beautiful local produce and flowers, unique vendors, and delicious treats!  Whenever I know there will be lots of people, maneuvering, crossing the street, etc. I always make sure I have my Happy Wrap for Viv.  I seriously think I have worn this wrap for hundreds of hours over the last ten months.  Viv still fits great in it, and it’s so comfortable.  Also, nothing better than having a sweet baby near you!  As she has gotten older, however, she doesn’t sleep as much in the wrap and needs something to keep her busy.  That’s why I’m also grateful I have our LouLou Lollipop teething necklaces!  As long as she has them to chew on, she is a happy little camper.  Plus, they have gone through testing and regulations in US and Canada to ensure they are legally safe for your little one!

I know she won’t be little long, so I’m going to soak up every minute!

Happy Sunday!
