Five on Friday

I'm linking up with Darci over at The Good Life Blog for the popular "Five on Friday" post.  I've been loving all of my blogger friends Friday's just basically a list of 5 random things that are on your mind.  Sometimes random is the best, huh?  With the craziness that is my life right now, these might be my only blog posts each week, ha! 


I'm starting back to work full-time on MONDAY after being out since being put on bed rest at the end of April!  Phew, that's a long-time of being out and I'm a whole new person now...a mom!  It will be a hard transition I'm sure, but I know I can get through it.  Say a little prayer for me on Monday morning if you can.  My and my breast pump are about to become best friends. 


I can't believe my baby boy is 10 weeks old today.  My long and lean little newborn has turned into a little chunk! 

One week

Two Months


Getting your body back after baby kinda sucks, I'm not gonna lie.  I took advantage of having our nanny this week by working out during the day which is so nice.  Once I go back to work it's going to be so hard to get those workouts in.  After work and on the weekends I'm just going to want to soak in my Jack time.  Working Moms...any tips on making this work?  The only thing that comes to mind is jogging with baby, but it's so darn HOT in Houston right now...

Seeing what work clothes fit (or don't fit) after baby kinda sucks too.  I refuse to wear maternity pants after baby!


I met my stepsister's baby boy Brody this week.  He was born exactly one month after Jack.  It will be so special to watch these guys grow up together. 


If anyone has the shopping bug, Loft has some cute stuff right now to help get you through the heat, yet transition you into Fall, especially if you love cardi sweaters as much as I do.  As I said in #3, I refuse to wear maternity pants right now, but I did have to get some work pants a few sizes larger than I was pre-pregnancy.  Depressing, but at least they are cute!

I didn't end up purchasing this dress because it wasn't workplace appropriate, but it is cute, cute, cute and very figure flattering (in case you are on the prowl for a great dress).

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!  Thanks for stopping by.  Leave a comment if you are new here so I can say hello and check out your blog too.


  1. We went to W's parents house last night and I seriously tried on 18,000 different things. I hate that nothing fits! I feel like dressing post baby would be so much easier in the winter when you can just throw on a cozy sweater. Love you!

    1. Miss you!!! Summer is the worst to be carrying the extra baby weight. All I want to do is wear shorts or little dresses since it's so hot, but of course that doesn't look good...and forget about going in the pool!

  2. Good luck back at work after baby! You look great!

  3. Maternity jeans or pre-pregnancy jeans with the Bella Band are the only way I can attempt to not look pregnant. They do great at holding all that extra weight around the waist, even when you've lost all the weight but are still carrying that extra thickness. Sounds crazy, but I'm not sure if you've noticed but the scale may read somewhat pleasing, yet still nothing fits. SO ANNOYING. Weight just redistributes so differently post baby. In due time, though, all returns to normal.

    1. Thanks for the tips Meagan! Hope you are enjoying getting settled in your beautiful new home. I'm so, so happy for you guys!
