15 Weeks

So I think I will do weekly updates, as long as you're ok with slightly blurry iPhone pictures!  ;)

How far along? 15 Weeks {first 15 week update}
Baby Size: An orange
Total weight gain/loss: I think I'm finally back to putting on weight.  I'll find out my official weigh-in later today.
Maternity clothes? Still no.  This dress is from Gap {similar here} and the necklace can be found here.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Still solid.
Best moment this week: Just enjoying Tahoe in the summer.  
Miss Anything? Eating whatever I want.  I had another unfortunate food experience this past week.  I accidentally ate moldy bread.  Now, in my defense, there was no visible mold but it definitely smelled funky and I just wrote it up to my crazy pregnant smell abilities.  But yesterday morning, Ryan went to make a sandwich for Ethan and it smelled SO bad, almost like acetone.  A quick Google search revealed that it's definitely mold.  :(
Movement: Definitely feeling more and more movement by the day...those little kicks are undeniable!
Food cravings: I really want a gourmet doughnut and ice cream.  Anybody??
Have you started to show yet: Definitely a big bump.  I think I can already retire this question.
Gender prediction: Still waiting to see!
Looking forward to: Having my best come to town this weekend and going to Lady Gaga!!
Differences this time around: I feel like everything is going so much faster this time around.  I would count the days down during my first pregnancy and I can't believe I'm already at 15 weeks.  Because of that, I also feel like it's hard for me to focus on the fact that I am pregnant again.  Especially now that I'm feeling better for the most part, it all seems to be pretty surreal.  I'm sure finding out the sex will make me connect more.

Oh and I also went for the "bronde" look...what do you think??

The Jumpsuit

Is it wrong that I'm 4 months pregnant and I want to buy my first jumpsuit?  I'm serious.  We have a couple fun concert coming up and I really want one!  I am thinking that there might be some forgiveness in the mid-section actually.  Anyone have experience wearing jumpsuits while pregnant??

Shop the look here:

Having a "Bronde" Moment

It's about time for a cut and color, and as always, I'm looking for a change.  I have been going darker with my color lately...adding in more low-lights and I find that I am constantly drawn to that honey blonde/brunette look...I guess they call it "bronde" these days.  It's super natural and pretty!  Here are some inspiration photos:

I'm totally digging this...are you?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Gender Neutral Nursery

A little while back, I started dreaming up the next nursery.  With Ethan, I chose lots of color and pattern for his nursery.  This time around, I think I want to go with something a little different.  Regardless of the sex, I think black and white is really fun and graphic. 

Of course, I am sure once we know, I'll change my mind again, but for the moment, I really love this look.  Several of these items are no longer in stock {like I said, I put this together several months ago}, but here is a breakdown of the items in the board above:

I think if it were for a boy, I would switch out the gold for this, this and this.

What do you think?

Favorite Jo Malone Fragrance?

As many of you know, Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale is going on right now.  Below are some of my top picks:

One of my favorite fragrances is Jo Malone's Orange Blossom.  It's super light and fresh and I wear it daily.  I'm getting low and here's my question: Do I buy this one again or branch out?  Some of the other scents that I'm intrigued by are: Peony & Blush Suede, Nectarine Blossom & Honey, or Vanilla & Anise.

Do you wear Jo Malone?  If so, what's your favorite?  Please share!

14 Weeks

Alright, I haven't quite figured out how I'll do these updates, but here is the first one!

How far along? 14 Weeks {see my first 14 week update here}
Baby Size: A lemon
Total weight gain/loss: Once again, I am down about 5 pounds {ironic that I finally lose those pesky 5 pounds now!}.  I've actually had a stomach bug that turns out to be a possible case of listeria.  We got an email from our local grocery store saying that a batch of peaches we recently purchased was exposed to listeria...peaches of all things!  I called my doctor yesterday morning and they have put me on antibiotics as a precaution.  Google is a terrible thing when you think you might be sick...and this has scared me quite a bit!  Fingers crossed and prayers that this everything is ok!  Have any of you had a listeria scare?
Maternity clothes? No.  This dress is from Old Navy!
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Sleeping well except for a nightly call to el baƱo.
Best moment this week: Entering the second trimester!
Miss Anything? My appetite!
Movement: Sometimes I think there might be a little flutter here and there.  I'm excited for that feeling again! 
Food cravings: Sweets more than anything...have been enjoying Panda Puffs for breakfast!
Anything making you queasy or sick: I mentioned it before, but taking my prenatals on an empty stomach pretty much guarantees I'll get sick.  But otherwise, it's been much smoother sailing this time around.
Have you started to show yet: Um yes, I feel like I'm already much bigger this time around.  
Gender prediction: Really no clue!  Originally I thought that since this has been an easier start, maybe it's a girl, but then I think that's my body just being used to the whole pregnant thing this time around.  Plus I feel like I'm giving into cravings {ie: lots of bread} a lot sooner to avoid the queezy feeling.
Looking forward to: Feeling better and entering the glorious second trimester!
Differences this time around: One thing I will say, is that I just LOVE pregnancy hair and noticed how full and non-oily it is this time around.  Before, I didn't really think I had pregnancy hair but then I had Ethan and it all fell out and man, was that a sad day.  So I am full-on embracing it this time around.  OH and another thing...I am pregnant at almost the exact opposite time...being pregnant during the summer and due in the winter.  Should be interesting to see how dressing the bump goes as we enter the cooler months.

Whew!  So there you go!  I will say...it's fun to see how I was with Ethan versus now.  Maybe I'll keep them up!  ;)

Our Weekend // Celebrity Golf

This past week, South Lake Tahoe hosted the annual Celebrity Golf Tournament, which is always a ton of fun.  My company is a media sponsor and I also volunteer through my charity club, so we got to share lots of fun moments.  

Jerry Rice was awesome and ran over to take a selfie with me!

Ryan also got to take a photo with Alex Smith {former 49ers QB}.

And he nerded out with some NASCAR drivers.  ;)

I think the highlight for me was seeing Carrie Underwood perform...she has an AMAZING voice!

It was especially fun because we got to make a date night out of it!  ;)

Unfortunately for the rest of the weekend, it rained a ton and we actually lost power most of Sunday!  So it was good old fashioned fun around here...building forts and eating guacamole by candlelight.  Thank goodness the power came back on in time for me to blog...ha!  #bloggerproblems

I hope you all had wonderful weekends!
