How far along: I photo 24 weeks in real life 29 weeks!!!

How big are they: As big as a cantaloupe!

Sleep: I wake up all the time to pee and they have a hard time falling back to sleep in the middle of the night. Also I have to find just that right position so I feel like enough air is getting into my lungs.

Best moment: I loved seeing them in my ultra sounds, also Trav has been able to finally feel them move. I love just laying in bed and watching them twirl around in their its still so baffling that there is something growing in there!!!

Symptoms: Seriously sore everything haha my hips hurt my back hurts and occasionally my ribs take quite the beating. Baby A on my right side is head down with feet right in my ribs and Baby B on the left is head up in my ribs and feet down in my lower belly. 

This picture is not my accurate picture for 29 weeks but hey what do you do haha. I had pre taken pictures around 26 weeks and needed to get an update up sometime! I will being taking photos with my bump now which I feel is way larger haha in the last couple of weeks its been crazy growing.

Cardigan: Asos, similar
Scarf: H&M similar
Jeans: Old Navy
Booties: Lulu*s

Hi y'all, hoping you all had a great Thanksgiving Holiday and adjusted well to getting back into the grind of things. Its always so rough for me to spend so much time with family having fun and then to have to go back to work as I am sure you feel the same way, but we made it through the week. And now the countdown to Christmas break begins!!! :)

Hope you all enjoy this simple aztec maternity look, I loved the way this shirt looked and with maternity wear I am always looking for some different items that can make my wardrobe a little more colorful and up beat. Annnd this scarf is now one of my most favorite scarfs in the world, its such a pretty color and I can add to any outfit with it.

P.s I am going to be 28 weeks next week! Thats third trimester baby.... almost there and these babies have been moving like cray cray I can't wait to meet them!!! Also if you have any input on names I would love the help, haha the creative juices in the naming department have pretty much stopped working..... HELP!

Thanks for reading all! Have a great Friday!

Symptoms: Heartburn baby haha not to bad but its still gross feeling, most the time I just feel like a disgusting human being with no drive to do anything! Last night I had a dream I went for a run and it felt sooo good until I woke up and realized that it didn't happen haha. Seeing in double vision.... really weird, hahahahaha

I am still pretty baffled that I am having twins! Its going to be so crazy but I really can't wait to be a mom!

18 Weeks with Pink Blush.

Kimono: Pink Blush
Top: Old Navy
Booties: American Eagle

Good morning peeps! I finally got around to taking some pics for an update! I have really loved being pregnant so far besides all crazy symptoms. Also we got to find out the genders and shared them with our families, which was so exciting and we couldn't be happier. Sorry to keep you waiting but I will be putting a gender post up next week for you I promise! 

I have loved looking for different ways to dress myself right now, because honestly nothing really fits how it used to. So its been fun to explore and begin dressing the bump. This kimono that I am wearing from Pink Blush, I have gotten so many compliments on and I think it is perfect for the beginning of fall. I absolutely love all the colors it has in it so I can pair it with a ton of fun outfits. Now what I am sure you have all been waiting for..... and Update!

How far along: 18 weeks and 5 days!

How big are the little peanuts: The size of a sweet potato.

Total weight gain: Honestly I don't weigh myself unless I am at the doc's, soooo I am guessing about 15 pounds.

Stretch marks: Ya baby! Pretty sure I gained all my weight in my... boobs! TMI but thats how it honestly feels, they have got some lovely stretch marks along with my hips. But nothing on my belly other than I already have that little line that goes from my belly button down.

Maternity clothes: YES! I have been trying not to wear to many tops because they are so baggy, but they are so comfy and I am all in for wearing comfortable things right now! I am loving Old Navy, ASOS, H&M, and Pink Blush Maternity right now. Other than that I just buy baggy tops so I just don't look fat. If I could wear my husbands sweats all day and feel cute I totally would haha lazy status..... or just love for comfort.

Sleep: I find myself getting more worried if I wake up on my back or my tummy in the mornings because I don't want to be hurting them. I have really loved this pillow here for sleeping it makes me so much more comfortable. 

Best moments: I loved going to get the gender ultrasound and just watching them move around and kick each other. Its so amazing to watch right now and I could do it all day, because I am really not sure if I can feel them haha.

Symptoms: So hungry I wake up in the middle of the night to go potty and then get a piece of bread to munch on. A little bit of sickness on and off right now, its real annoying at this point. My hand is still going numb and most the time I cannot feel my fingers, my doctor called it pregnancy carpal tunnel and sent me to get a brace to wear at night which has helped a little but it still stinkin hurts!!! They really like to make my face break out as well which is really good for my confidence levels haha. 

Cravings: I have been loving potatoes.

Gender: I am so sorry to keep you waiting, but I will be announcing on the blog next week so keep your eyes peeled!

Bump: Still kind of in the fatty stage but there is definitely a little bump.

Thanks for reading today I hope you have a great Wednesday!

Love ya and see you in a bit for a gender reveal!!! ;)

Totally Bohoing it Up with Jord Watch.

Shirt: Old similarsimilar
Jeans: AE
Watch: Jord Watch
Necklace: Etsy

Well hello there readers!!! I hope you have been doing awesome and aren't to sick of all my NY pics I posted on my insta! (If you don't follow me you should here.) We had a fantastic time and I am sad to be back, I will be doing a full post in the future all about our trip so make sure to check back! Vacations go way to fast because they are so exciting, I guess thats ok but it sure is hard to go back to reality.

You guys I don't know if you have ever heard of wood watches but they are so amazingly cool and you should definitely check them out! I was so excited when Jord contacted me to collaborate with them, and when I checked out the watches on the site I was more than THRILLED to work with them. The watches that they have are not only gorgeous but they are so unique to any other watch I have ever seen! The craftsmanship of these watches is  so amazing and the wood they are made of is so stunning. They have so many different types of wood you can choose from, each one as equally beautiful as the next. I mean seriously here are some of my favorites so you can take a quick look at some... SidneyCoraDover for Trav. So amazing huh?

This outfit goes so perfectly with my Jord watch and proves that you can wear these stunning watches with almost anything! Fringe is definitely one of my favorites this summer so this pretty lace kimono was perfect! Also I have never really worn hats on my blog because I am not a huge hat girl but I think this cute brown floppy hat is turning me into more of a hat wearer! It's the perfect hat for that hot summer sun and it so pretty! Oh and check out this amazing dream catcher necklace isn't it amazing? Dream catchers always remind me of my Grandpa Winn so it made this necklace even more special to me. Love your Gpa Winn!

Hope you all enjoyed! Have a fantastic Friday and a great weekend!

Earrings: MMM
Bracelets: ALEX AND ANI

Were you able to guess?!?!....

You got it that's right NYC!!! I am so excited I can hardly contain myself, seriously though I cannot wait and we are leaving so soon. For those of you who may not know I went and nannied for a year over there when I was 18 and honestly it was one of the hardest/most rewarding things I did when I was younger. I loved New York but I was pretty homesick to say the least. My oh my I sure do miss it, I really took the city for granted when I lived there. Plus I haven't been back for three years and the little boys I nannied aren't so much little boys anymore, they have grown up so much and I can hardly believe it. We are going to be staying in the city a couple of days and then we are headed out to Long Island to party with the family I nannied. We are going to be so busy but I am totally ok with that but I am not sure Trav knows whats about to hit him haha. Its not the most relaxing vaca but that's just fine with me as long as we get to eat some delicious food! Yum! Also my birthday was a couple days ago and my cute hubby bought me tickets to the Lion King on Broadway! So that is one of the many things we are going to do while we are there. I am sure I will put a huge post up when we get back so be ready for it!

This outfit was perfect for announcing our destination location and I am in love with this cute shirt especially because of course Archie Rue is a Yorkie duh haha. I will definitely be taking this cute New Yorkie outfit to NYC with me because its so comfy and practical for walking around all day.

I hope you all enjoyed! Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Love ya,
Mindy Sue
