I posted the above photo on Instagram yesterday but thought I'd give an update here as well. I will be doing a flash sale with some cotton + flannel baby blankets in the next week or two. I've had a bunch of this just stashed away but the prints are just too good to keep in my closet and not share. Plus I'm working on a little spring collection with some new things for my shop, so I needed to clear out some space! I'm really excited about this new stuff, I've got some custom printed fabric headed my way and I'm keeping the collection pretty small (but it includes baby stuff, my faaaavorite) so its only the best of the best (at least I think so!). As soon as I have more info, I'll post another update!
In other news, we're also in the beginning process of buying a house and house hunting. This year is going to be a crazy huge transition for us, one of the biggest is moving to a new city (even though its only 10 minutes north). I'm excited and nervous.. and nervous.. but mostly excited! Especially at the thought of finally having a house (and a back yard!) and not having gross apartment carpet. It's the important things.. you know? I'm hoping the search and entire process is more fun than it is awful, but we'll see! Wish us luck.
And heere's a fun mirror selfie (the worst kind-ha!) because I wanted a more personal photo for this post and I have nothing else. Yes, that's a sports bra hanging up in the background... I was taking photos for another insta closet sale. As for the blank stare, I don't know... I was sending this photo to a friend to show her my new bangs and my new foundation I fell in love with. Lots of exciting things here. Don't you want to be my friend now? (Where's the rolls eye emoji when you need it)

(I had this post scheduled for a couple weeks ago and just noticed it never went up. Old news!)
Here we go again! We have a summer baby on the way (mid-july) and I'd say we timed that pretty perfectly because I don't think we can handle another birthday in the fall/winter.
The first trimester was pretty rough (and MUCH harder than it was Beck) and I basically begged Beck to watch netflix all day so I could sleep. Not my finest parenting but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Josh also happened to have a lot of time off at the end of the year which lined up perfectly, since that was the time I needed help the most. I'm feeling mostly back to normal now as far as energy and just so excited and thankful that I get to do all of this again.
Can't wait for my belly to get to growing big and for Beck to get to be a part of it all this time. He's not quiiiiite understanding what it means...he'll talk about the baby in mama's tummy but also points to the "baby in beck's tummy" too. It might click more when it looks like I'm smuggling a basketball ;)
Josh took this a couple days before Christmas and I thought it perfectly summed up my life the past couple months!

On Sunday we got a surprise snow day and it ended up being one of the best days I can remember. It wasn't a huge amount but enough to play in and make everything look incredibly pretty. The last time we really had snow Beck was super tiny so this was his first experience taking it all in and he loved it. He just kept kicking it and running around like.. "what is this???"
Josh taught him how to catch the snow on your tongue. And tried to show him how to throw it but he didn't love getting his mittens in it.
The neighborhood was so dang pretty I could've walked around all day. By the next day it was pretty slushy and gross again but it was super fun while it lasted. And now that we have that out of our systems can winter be over?? I've decided I'm officially not a cold weather person (give me spring or fall year round). I'm freezing 24/7 and so ready to be outside more. Also, the darkness... I need more daylight in my life.
Anyway! Beck's first real snow day was a success. Looking adorable and smiling the whole time :)
