5 Things I'm Loving Right Now

Happy Wednesday, friends! We are finally back to preschool and our regular routine today and I have to say I am really looking forward to settling back in to our new routine. With the storm and being trapped in the house, it was the perfect time to focus on a little online shopping. Here is what I am loving right now.


I missed these in the Nordstrom sale this year but still really wanted them. I kept hearing how comfortable they were, which is always a win for me. I kind of feel like at this point in my life I am over wearing uncomfortable shoes just for the sake of cuteness. These have been cycling in and out of stock (not on sale, though) and I finally caught the gray pair in my size. They arrived just before the storm and I love them. They really are so comfortable and perfect for this time of year when it is basically fall but won't feel like it for quite some time in North Carolina.

Coffee + Conversation


Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend and that if your area was in the path of Florence that you are safe this morning. We were very lucky that Charlotte didn’t get quite as big of a hit as they were expecting and that our house sits up so high that we didn’t have any of the flooding that other parts of town, and even other parts of our neighborhood, experienced.

Preschool is cancelled again today so we aren’t quite back to our normal schedule today but still getting off pretty un-scathed considering so I have no complaints. Except taking Madeline with me to my glucose test appointment since that’s a long time to keep a toddler entertained at the doctor’s office!

My Second Trimester Workout Routine


Happy Friday! With Hurricane Florence on track to cause a lot of rain and flooding in our area over the next few days, this has been a busy week as I prepared and then had to rearrange some projects and appointments I had planned so my posting has been a little sporadic this week. This post was originally scheduled for Wednesday but I have been running around like a mad woman this week. Corey made it home early from his travels this week, which instantly relaxed me, knowing I won’t be home along if we do have bad weather or lose power. Now, we just relax and use the excuse of days of rain to finish some tasks at home.

I’ve shared before that a big personal goal for me for this pregnancy was staying active and continuing to exercise appropriately throughout. I shared my first trimester workout routine here. The end of my first trimester coincided with the end of Madeline’s preschool year, which caused me to switch up my workout routine just a bit since the gym I use for cardio equipment does not provide childcare.
