Life Via the Camera Roll

Hellllo ladies! I’m way overdue for a Life Via the Camera Roll (or should be called “iPhone Photo Dump” because its been so long since i’ve done one πŸ˜‰ So here we go with all kinds of random shots from the last couple months…..
So many of you asked about this dress on Instagram last week to my girlfriends bridal shower dinner….
It’s one of my favorites I have had for years and is not a maternity dress but the comfy stretchy fabric is perfect for accommodating  bumps too! I’m wearing the XS and you can find it HERE! (35 Weeks Pregnant)
Everything is getting pretty tight lately so there’s been a lot more of these outfits πŸ˜‰ 
New Balance Sneaks // Zella Workout Pants // My favorite Target Maternity Tank (literally own 5!)
Lou Monster! I think she knows she’s about to be outnumbered by kiddos lol

A little mama pampering at the Dry Bar! I’m trying to sneak in as many of these little “me moments” before the little one arrives! (About 34 Weeks in this pic) 
Target Maternity Tank // Paige Maternity Denim // RailsLA Flannel ( similar style same brand HERE)
Off to LA back in Decemeber and Barney’s is always the first stop on the list! The infamous Barney’s shot! (Ps you know my pregnant self took the elevator) lol
How cute is this coffee shop?! A stop at Alfred’s on Melrose for a little pick me up is a must! Ps they have the SWEETEST baristas! 
Always.

After shopping and running around with girlfriends, we wanted to go to The Grove for dinner. Well if you’ve been in December you can attest it’s a disaster around the holidays! We skipped it and snuck one street over to one of my favorite no fail italian spots Terroni for a little carbo overload! It’s also pretty family friendly too for those of you with kiddos!
Last week with my little helper picking up some flowers in the sweetest little trench!
 (similar trench  HERE 35% off today with promo code BEST) and leopard flats (similar HERE and HERE)! I have WAY too much fun dressing her! Although I have to say I think dressing a little boy is going to be just as much fun! 
A girls day out yesterday isn’t complete without a trip for some mini cupcakes! Local ladies if you haven’t been to Susie Cakes on 17th you MUST!!! The peanut butter cupcake and chocolate chocolate cake are my favorite! 

Ava’s Jacket Similar on SALE HERE and HERE // leather leggings // mini Chucks 
My Jacket sold out similar HERE // Top // Paige Maternity denim // Frye OTK Boots (Budget Friendly HERE)// and Oversized Beanie (same style different color HERE)
I think I have mentioned before but this is probably going to be our last pregnancy so i’ve really just been trying to embrace the bump as much as possible! I really want to soak in all these special moments and am kind of sad it’s coming to a close! Don’t get me wrong being 9+ months pregnant I definitely have my “over it” days but overall I know i’m going to miss all the little special moments that just he and I share! πŸ˜‰
Bikini Beach Bumpin’ at 34 Weeks in my favorite crochet bikini 
Top // Bottom
 (I’m wearing S in top and M/L in bottom)
Soaking in all of these precious precious moments! I seriously cant believe we are going to be a family of four in just a couple weeks!!!

and tackling the nursery! How adorable is this little cub print?!  We are just about finished and I plan on doing a full post on the final outcome soon!!

On another note I shipped out all the Shop BabyBee orders this week for those of you who purchased items! I plan on uploading one more round before on there before I do my Shop Honeybee closet clean out this weekend (kind of dreading it because there’s A LOT to purge!) Also some of you requested a baby products must haves post so that will be on the blog tomorrow and an official bump update later this week as well!

I hope you lovelies are having a great week!!

  1. love all your looks! just was wondering what size Ava is wearing in her leather leggings, i want to order a pair for my 3 yr old but wasn't sure how they ran, she usually fits in size 3/4..thanks so much! xo

  2. Obsessed with that rachel pally dress, buying it right away for this summer with my bump!! πŸ˜‰ Enjoy the last few days before baby boy arrives, so excited for you & your family!!! XO

  3. I'm 31 weeks pregnant, and I just wanted to thank you so much for the bump style inspiration! I wasn't finding anything in maternity that I was liking. I was in such a rut. And your posts were so helpful! I felt like you did all the research for me for finding non-maternity stuff that would work for maternity and I could wear post-partum! Thank you so much! I bought this Rachel Pally
    Nita Dress, the cream Henrietta Dress, and the long black Splendid tank from your posts … and I LOVE them all! Thank you SO MUCH!!

Life Via the Camera Roll

Hi loves! I know its been a minute since i’ve done a Life Via the Camera Roll post. I tend to post a lot on instagram now because it’s much faster (and easier to respond to you ladies) but here we go today with a little Life Via the Camera Roll from last week! As previously mentioned we decided to head back east and visit my family for Thanksgiving. Now that i’m 7+ months pregnant we thought we should try to squeeze in one more east coast trip before this new baby arrives. Traveling with a kiddo is DEFINITELY a bit of work but this age is so much better for flying! We bring tons of snacks, a couple small new toys (coloring books etc) and of course the IPad and you’re pretty much set! 
We traveled with Ava when she was 7 months old and then again when she was 9 months and both of those trips were stressful and rough for us. Not sure if you mamas had the same experience or not with that age and flying too?! So we decided one last trip back home because we’ll be putting the long flights on hold till our next one is a bit older. When we’re back home visiting family it’s all about seeing as much fam as we can, over eating lots of not so healthy food and soaking in all the chilly weather! So here we go with a few random shots from our quick trip! 
My big helper!  (She definitely in the “do it myself” stage πŸ˜‰

My travel style essentials: Comfy New Balance Sneaks (similar I love HERE) and an extra large Balenciaga travel tote!

Someone wasn’t used to the East Coast weather πŸ˜‰
(Camo Puffer Jacket on Sale // New Balance Shoes // and Uppa Baby umbrella Stroller) This stroller has come in SO handy for traveling but now on to find a double umbrella stroller option…suggestions always welcome! 
I was so bummed it snowed the day before we got there. It melted pretty quickly but we played in it while we could and Ava is officially obsessed with snow!
and when you’re at meme’s house you wake up to smell of bacon and Paual Dean’s French Toast Casserole! TROUBLE! 

Impromptu snow ball fights while helping Meme pick out a tree

(Pea Coat Similar on Sale HERE // Lace up Ugg Boots)
Ugh and I couldn’t get enough of Ava playing with her little cousin! Clearly having the time of her life on this little train ride πŸ˜‰
And then Aunt Andee had to take down her teenage niece and nephews in the ginger bread house contest! ;))))
a trip home is never complete without a country breakfast at Cracker Barrel! I tried to keep it healthy with the turkey sausage and egg whites but of course dominated the biscuits and gravy and fried apples!!! 
Ava had SO much fun this trip and seeing her with all her cousins makes me so happy! I hope you girls all had a great Thanksgiving too!!

I know a few of you have been asking for a bump update and promise to have that post for you in the next couple days!

  1. See I'm getting a little nervous about our upcoming vacation this week… We have a son who just turned 7 months. We took him to Chicago when he was 6 weeks and then to Disney World when he was 5 months and both trips were a breeze… But now that he's a little more active, I'm getting a little worried. But I'm glad to hear things get easier!

    Xoxo,

    1. hopefully your little one just does better on flights! Those ages were super tough for us because she was crawling a lot but not walking and wanted to go go go (which you obviously cant do on the flights now) sending positive mama vibes your way! xoox

    1. oh hmmm well have to look into that asap! I wonder if it is side by side or one in front of the other. I think i would take everything out if I went with a side by side option lol

  2. We're gearing up for our xmas flight….not quite as far but 2 flights each way! Looks like Ava is more behaved than our wild man though!!! Love that Louis travel bag….what style is it? like that it has rollers πŸ™‚

    1. good luck love! Hopefully you can have a cocktail while in flight ;)) As far as the luggage I'm not exactly sure of the name of it. We purchased it 5 years ago and I'm actually planning on listing it on Shop Honeybee soon as I have my eye on a new one!

  3. It's not an umbrella stroller but the baby jogger city mini is super light weight. It is a side by side but fits through wheel chair accessible doors. We have flown with ours a lot and love it. It's a bit better to walk with and use once we arrive at our destination and has reclining seats and sun covers. You should check it out.

Life via the camera roll

Okay am I only one who feels like I’m running around like a crazy lady lately?! I don’t know if its the time of year or what but I seriously feel like my to do list is NEVER ending! My family was in town last week and it was so nice to spend some quality time with them but now back to our regularly scheduled program πŸ˜‰ Here are some shots from last week chillin’ on my camera roll…..

Sprinkles Sunday! Daddy had the milk shake (clearly a hit with Ava πŸ˜‰ and I took some cupcakes to go. Bad idea as I had Sprinkles two days in a row (but it’s the holidays right?! πŸ˜‰

Have you ladies tried Sprinkles Ice Cream yet?! Oh lordy! They blend up a cupcake in practically any milkshake making it thick, sweet and chunky πŸ˜‰ They also do ice cream sandwiches and ice cream with a cupcake top on the side (who doesn’t want that right?!) Either way they are ALL delicious!

Just another beautiful December day in Orange County!  Nothing like a Palm tree / Christmas tree combo! 
The ginormous tree is back at South Coast Plaza! 
YEAH for a little date night action! We got to see Hunger Games and yup I definitely eat junk from the movie theaters too πŸ˜‰

We met up with some of our favorite families last Saturday in San Clemente for their annual parade. Santa came through on a fire truck and if you could have seen Ava’s face light up! It was just too sweet!

We decided to get a real Christmas tree last weekend and it may or may not still be sitting undecorated in our living room ;( We’ve been SO busy lately that i’m hoping to get it all done by the weekend!

Ava couldn’t get enough of the choo choo’s at Roger’s Garden
The Thai Basil Grapefruit Martini from True Foods….Heavenly! 
We’ve been having the most amazing sunsets lately! 
I hope you ladies are having a great weekend! I can’t believe its almost Friday already! If you haven’t already enter my Revlon giveaway for a chance to win a $50 Visa gift card here

  1. Thank you for helping me get my weekend plans in order… get Christmas tree, take the kids to Roger's Gardens, and make time for the Basil/Grapefruit martini haha πŸ˜‰ It's crazy that Christmas is only 20 days away ahhh!

  2. That last photo is gorgeous! My daughter is obsessed with trains right now so she'd love that garden. I wish there was something like that here to take her to. You're definitely not the only crazy lady.. it's that time of year :]

  3. Beautiful Pics, and Beautiful family! I wish I was sharing that martini with you! Lil Miss is precious beyond words! can't wait to see you all again soon! πŸ˜‰ xoxoxo

Ava LOVES going to the Koi pond
I’m obsessed with fresh lilac lately! I have been purchasing it weekly at Traders
YEAH for rose season πŸ˜‰

My go to red polish OPI in Monsooner or Later
A few weeks ago we went to Palm Springs with a couple other families for a little group vacay. It was so nice doing a trip with families who can appreciate the importance of “5pm dinners” and early wake up calls. We ended up staying at The Westin Mission Hills Villas. Now i’ll admit I can be a bit fab when it comes to hotels and was a little skeptical about staying at such a family friendly spot but it ended up being a great trip! After all its the company you’re with right?! The rooms had a full kitchen, dining, washer/dryer and they had a crib and high chair set up for our arrival. Those things are definitely a huge bonus when traveling with kids. The pool scene was definitely not like the Colony Hotel I had experienced the week before πŸ˜‰ but this trip was more for the kiddos and not mention it was much more affordable. 
*Have you ladies done a Palm Springs family trip?! If so i’d love to know where you recommend for a family vacay?!

  1. fun! I love palm springs! I went with my family this past christmas to get away from our cold Canada weather and we actually rented out a house for the week which was in a country club with a golf course, pools, etc. I think maybe that would be something worth looking into if you're travelling with many kids and families you could get two houses next to eachother it was AMAZING! πŸ™‚ and don't forget the Cabazon outlets…. simply amazing. πŸ™‚

    1. you know we talked about renting a house and think we may just have to do that next time we go! Oh and Cabazon is the best! we went on mothers day πŸ˜‰

  2. It's so nice that you have a lot of girlfriends with bambino's around the same age! Makes weekend getaways all the more fun.

    I'm going to be on the hunt for that liliac at Trader's this week – so perfect for the start of summer!

  3. ahh, little Ava looks such a happy baby!! πŸ™‚ and how could she not love the Koi pond? these fishes can be rather fascinating (even for such a big girl like me!) πŸ˜‰ i love lilac too – it reminds me of home πŸ™‚
    have a great week!
    Diana
    xoxo

  4. Love the pics, your family friends vaca looked fun! I havent been to Palm Springs in ages, before husband and kiddos! Lol long time ago but shopping was so much fun. We just stayed at a condo though. Hope to vacation sometime in the future, you guys are so blessed!

  5. sounds like such a beautiful, relaxing life!!! πŸ™‚ the pic of you and ava is so sweet…i noticed she is standing on her own! is she walking yet? πŸ™‚

    also, if you don't mind me asking – how to you get those pretty dark frames around your pictures? than you πŸ™‚

  6. Sounds like a fabulous trip! I'm actually trying to pick a weekend over the next month or 2 to head to Palm Springs, so thank you for sharing your experience. πŸ™‚ Love the lilacs too! I'll have to swing by Trader Joe's today and see what they have in stock to help brighten up my kitchen now!

  7. I have been told a lot lately that Trader Joe's is THE place to get fresh, beautiful flowers! I have to go this week. I love lavender! I bet it makes the entire room smell lovely πŸ™‚

  8. Are you planning on doing another baby post? (Has Ava started walking/talking?) Lilacs are beautiful! You should plant a tree in your yard! They are so nice to look at and smell sooooooo good! πŸ˜‰

Life Via the Camera Roll

Some random shots from the Camera Roll last week….

Went to Rihanna’s concert and had THE BEST time! I haven’t been to a concert in forever and forgot how much fun they are! Safe to say Rihanna is my new girl crush, she killed it! PS her body is ridiculous! If she’s coming to your area I highly recommend going! 
Thank you to my beautiful bestie for the tickets! muah! 
A beautiful beach day in Monarch Beach with friends
My little beach bunny! 
I think I need to invest in a big beach blanket! So much for keeping sand off the towels with this little one!

Celebrating one of my best friends 30th in LA last week…Loved all the lights in her backyard! She did such an amazing job with all the decor!

Hope you ladies are having a great weekend!!!

  1. Andee beautiful as always, love all the pictures. I love your black and white printed blouse from concert, where is it from?

  2. Hi Andee,
    Can you tell me where that black dress is from you wore to the 30th? I have one coming up and am looking for something to wear. Thank you!

    1. hi hun funny that it does look like I'm wearing a black dress but its actually black high waist pants and a white crop top. You def need a fab dress for your 30th ! I would check out ASOS.com for some affordable fab options. xo

  3. Omg so jealous you went to Riri! We had to give up our tix bc I just couldn't handle it the night before a red eye ha!! She is my favorite. Looks like a fab week, we must get together soon! Xo

  4. I read your blog for a while now, before your little bunny was born. But you still are such a beautiful woman.
    I really admire your style, your life…
    I just turned 21 and bought my first house.
    I'm gone marry my darling on 22 of june! It's getting so close..

    I want to give you a big hug from tiny Belgium

    manon

  5. That whole babies and too small beach blankets is a riot!! I actually got Vivi one from Target last year that was Dora (kinda nerdy but whatevs) and it repelled sand, was big, and square! It's awesome and the sand doesn't sit in the cotton like a regular beach blanket. I highly recommend you hooking yourself up with one for future beach dates with sweet Ava.

Just some randomness via the Camera Roll……

One of my favorite nudes right now… Mambo by Essie

How we roll these days πŸ™‚ This Zoli container is a MUST in my diaper bag! (Ill post a link below if you’re interested) It has 4 separate containers with a twist off top with spout for easy pouring. I store mine with formula and puffs. Ava also loves the little Zoli teething sticks!

*click on the set for info

I LOVE capturing all of their sweetness on my phone! So in love with their  our love!

Its been awhile but always SO nice getting a blowout at the one and only Dry Bar!
Its like 50 shades of gray over here! Were doing some upgrades on the house and the hunt for the perfect gray continues! 
Hope you ladies are having a great week!

  1. Your hair is so beautiful! I wish we had a dry bar closer to Temecula. We need one! Do you just have long layers Andee? I love the shape of your hair.
    And of course, I love the little one πŸ˜‰

    1. you guys don't have one there?! Im sure one will be popping up there soon! As for my hair I just tell her to trim up the layers around my face and give me some long layers in the back

  2. Your hair looks beautiful, I love the waves. I've never seen the Zoli brand you're using. The container looks helpful forsure. Finding the right paint color is tuff. We just painted our bedroom and it took like a year for me to find the color πŸ˜‰ happy hump day <3

  3. love these photos – we used different shades of gray throughout our home with the majority of it being BM's revere pewter…i love a good gray! πŸ™‚ good luck! xo

    1. The revere pewter is the one I'm leaning towards but i might want to go a tad darker. I just want to get it right this time so I won't want to redo it…and the hubby won't want to kill me lol

  4. Thanks for sharing the photos Andee, Ava is too cute! Could you please do an outfit breakdown of the outfit you are wearing in the dry bar picture? You look gorgeous πŸ™‚

  5. Love the outfit and hair! What type of style did you order at drybar? It is exactly what I need to tell them to do for my hair!

  6. I second Revere Pewter! It's a great gray. It pulled purple in my house but I have seen it in a lot of places and it's really pretty… My house had 50 shades of gray going on as well!

  7. Hey Andee. I too was in search of the perfect grey for my daughters nursery. I'm due March 4th πŸ™‚ We found the perfect color from Sherwin Williams. It's called pussywillow. It's an unforgettable name haha but the color is the perfect grey. Good luck! <3

  8. Andee- You're right on the money babe! Galveston Gray is one of my designer top picks!! Clients love the warmth of it since gray can really look cold in daylight. Try a sample on opposite walls that get the most light and the least amount of it, you can tell right away how it's going to react throughout the day. I also really love Dior Gray if you're looking for something deep and sexy, especially if all your furniture is neutral and light. Can't wait to see how it all develops!

    Thanks for stopping by love!

    xo-Julie
    Peace. Love. LOL!

  9. Any chance you could post a close up of your new hair? I too want to go from black/brown to a more natural shade. I love yours and would love to see a closer shot I could bring to my hairdresser!

One of the MANY tasty holiday treats Trader Joes is carrying right now! SO good! Im going to have to try some of the other ones you girls mentioned on Instagram! Thanks for the recommendations!

Don’t you just love red wine in the Fall?! Mommy enjoying a glass of MUCH NEEDED vino while daddy feeds the babe! Dining out is comedy hour now with Ava. She is a girl on the go and does not like to sit still for long! 
I’ve been on a green smoothie kick lately and do this in the blender! I literally use whatever I have left in the fridge. (For this one I used a handful of kale, handful of spinach, 4oz of water/apple juice 50/50, a couple scoops of 0% Fage greek yogurt, a frozen banana and couple Tbsp of ground flax)

    1. Thanks Lucy the case can be purchased at shopbop.com but i also found it at one of those carts at the mall after my first one cracked. The current one is by Skech.

  1. What brand shirt are you wearing? I need more relaxed good quality shirts but have trouble deciding which brands to shop for?

  2. Gorgeous sweetie! Your hair looks fab, I wish I could get mine blown out every week! It's hard for me to get it looking the way I want unless a pro does it for me.

    Also loving your new bag!

    1. thanks noelle! I wish i got to get it blown out every week but more like twice a month now whenever I can squeeze in time. It def looks much better when they do it for me!

  3. Hey Andee!

    Heading out to Laguna in early October. I remember your post recommending The Deck Restaurant. Do you prefer "The Deck" or "Rooftop Bar", both in Laguna?

    Thanks!

    1. yes isn't that crazy! Thank goodness for pumping! I usually have to wait about three hours till I can breastfeed. So i just make sure I have a little supply built up if I'm having more than one drink!

  1. we`re already following eachother, but i loooove seeing these pictures again! how sweet are ava and lou!? that has to be the best onesie i`ve ever seen (=

  2. Oh my word our babies are right at the same age! Baby C weighed 15.9 and I cried almost as bad as he did with the shots. : ) so glad I'm not the only one!

  3. Ughh, I accidentally unfollowed you on Instagram (my user name is abbyjwilliams) and when I try to follow again it's says you are private! πŸ™ I love following your updates!

  4. Weird question but speaking of Instagram.. what app did you take the pic of the macaroons with? I love the little hearts!

  5. I follow you on it and I'm in love with your babes squishy cheeks! Love them! She is so perfect… Must get it from her momma! πŸ™‚ I have 3 little girls (under age 3) so you're going to LOVE having a little girl.. They just get sweeter every day! πŸ™‚

  6. So glad to hear I'm not the only one- I cried before we even made it into the room!

    I did some research before I went in for my little ones second round of vaccinations and found several articles suggesting that moms nurse during the vaccinations. The articles all said that doing so relieves the perception of pain for the baby. Anyhow, I gave it a try and it was soooooo much better for him (and therefor me too!). It wasn't totally a cry free experience, but he only cried for 2-3 seconds and then went back to nursing! It was such a relief.

    Hope it helps for next time

    1. oh my gosh thats so good to hear… i will DEF try that the next time. Little Ava was so upset after her shot she couldn't even latch on when i tried to feed her…breaks my heart even thinking about it!

  7. Hi doll I love instagram and currently follow you and your little love!! You can find me under dcscott the photo is a baby polar bear. Your baby girl is such a sweetheart!!

    1. oh i think i deleted your request bc i thought it was a guy πŸ˜‰ There are way to many creepers out there so I'm pretty particular on who I add on it. If you want you can send another request or ill try to find you xo

  8. Andee, I love your posts! Im a follower on instagram, but If you want to follow me look for me under map_001! Hugs to you and sweet Little Ava. She is gorgeous just like her mama!

  9. I've never had a macaroon either but I really want to try them! Those look amazing!! I follow you on instagram – I'd be honored if you'd follow me back! My name is "iu09" πŸ™‚

  10. I have instagram too and love it. Such an easy way to post pictures. I also love to see what other people post. My username is "shoeaddict79" in case you want to have a look.

  11. Ava is SO adorable! And you look gorgeous, as always.
    I started using Instagram a lot more lately, love it. (user name lilly_101)

  12. Ava is gorgeous! My little man gets his shots in two weeks, I'm sure I will be a crying mess also πŸ˜‰

  13. Bonjour,
    FΓ©licitation, votre petite fille est merveilleuse. J'adore votre blog, quelle Γ©lΓ©gance.
    MΓ©lanie (Paris)

  14. Just randomly came across your blog and love it!! =) I actually live in Houston but am working in Long Beach this week. I plan on venturing out into Newport Bch and Laguna Beach one or 2 nights while I am here….do you have any dinner recommendations?! Or anything else I should try to see/do while I am here?? Thanks so much!!

    1. Hi Leslie…welcome to OC πŸ˜‰ As far as Laguna I would highly recommend checking out "the Deck" great restaurant on the sand( if you follow me on instagram i just posted a pic from there tonight!) or "the Rooftop" on top of the Casa Del Camino hotel. Newport I would check out Pizzeria Mozza for dinner (great pizza) or Javiers (CRYSTAL COVE) its a stunning mexican restaurant. If you want fancy you can also check out Mastros Ocean Club in crystal cove as well.

Perfect first mothers day celebrated with a poolside brunch, beautiful heart necklace from Ava ;), gorgeous flowers from the hubs, Dry bar gift from the bestie and TONS of snuggling with my baby girl! I couldn’t have asked for a better day.

  1. Lovely instagram pic of you with baby bjorn carrier on,but shorten the straps,she should be lying higher up in the carrier,on your chest.x

  2. Omg! I'm in love with your blog! Truthfully I usually get really annoyed with woman chatting about their pregnancy, but my girlfriend introduced me to your blog a couple weeks ago, and you are truely a woman I can look up to when that time in my life comes. I've actually embraced motherhood with a positive mindset and more than excited to be healthy, organic, and a hot mama and wife! Thank you for opening my mind and look forward to other recommendations!

  3. Hi i just came accross your blog, congratulations on your new baby! I have to say you look amazing for just having a baby! I had my daughter 18 months ago and still can't lose the last 15 lbs! Can you give me some advice? What workouts do you do to keep your stomach flat and what do eat?

  1. Louie can't wait to meet her little sis! I love the pic of all of the frenchie's! and your hair looks fab (can you believe i've never been to the Dry Bar yet!!…i need to go!)

  2. i die. lou and baby a are so cute together already! what a loving big sister she is! she definitely looked like she was in frenchie heaven, i think if i was there with kimchi, i would die squealing of happiness (and im not even one of those girlie emotional girls!).

  3. Louie is so adorable! I love the pic of Louie with fellow frenchies and also the one with her sitting on your lap!! SOOOOO cute!!

  4. Awwwww! Andee! You should print these out and scrapbook them into a baby book. I want Lou BTW πŸ˜‰ I seriously show her pictures to my fiance whenever you feature her and I keep telling him I want a little Lou in my life!

  5. Lol! That first pic made me laugh out loud and "awwww!" simultaneously. I cannot wait for baby Ava to arrive!! My heart dropped when you posted that pic in the car the other day, I thought you were on your way to the hospital! haha

  6. awh love your Louie. She is so adorable. My bf and I have two pugs and we are thinking of getting a frenchie soon. she is definitely in heaven with all the frenchies At the park. Our pugs are the same way when we do a pug meetup. U look great pregnant and always so beautiful.

  7. Looking WONDERFUL as always. I can't believe how soon your due date is… so very excited for you!! I can't wait to see the precious babe! XOXOX

  8. Hi Andee,

    Could you tell me where your jacket is from in the last photo, "Dry Bar Pampering"?

    Thanks!
    Monica

    1. oh good! I'm sure it will look great on you! I have been living in it lately as it is one of the only things that fit besides my maternity leggings πŸ˜‰

  9. My kids are wanting a small dog and Ive been so hesitant. My husband almost bought a yorkie and Im just worried about getting a trainable dog that is good with kids. what are Frenchies like?

    1. Frenchies are the best! Super hilarious personalities and really good with kids but they are a little high maintenance and can be expensive with all their allergies etc.

  10. Cute pics!!!! So excited, any day now!!! The DVF Gapkids collection is out today. Don't forget to check it out, I couldn't resist, too many pieces for my girls!!

  11. thanks for answering me about the fabulous jacket, and thanks for your posts which are always positive, fun and pure. keep it up! xo

    Monica

  12. Totally agree on framing that photo! Sooooo cute! I love frenchies, I have a Boston and am obseessed with him! πŸ™‚

    Love your jacket too. Do you know what style or name the E&J is? I can't find it on shopbop. Thanks doll! πŸ™‚

    1. love bostons! actually louie LOVES bostons πŸ˜‰ The jacket is called the Kurt jacket by elizabeth & james. You may be able to find it at neimans or saks online but if not id check ebay as i purchased it a few months back and it may be sold out now. xo

    2. I know this is an old post but i am STALKING that E&J Kurt jacket which is of course not available anymore πŸ™ If you ever want to sell it you have an eager buyer LOL!

  1. You are honestly one of the loveliest soon-to-be mamas I have seen; and I wish my hair could hold a wave/curl like yours.

    Congrats πŸ™‚

  2. Love your hair! Louie looks soooooo cute sunbathing! I have a small dog too and she will also go sleep wherever she can get some sun.

  3. Hello gorgeous Andee!

    Just wondering if you can answer a pregnancy question for me – I know you changed your skin care around with your pregnancy, and I'm just wondering if you had to do the same with your makeup products?
    I'm TTC and just wondering if that's something I'll need to think about or not.

    Thanks and have a wonderful day,
    Lucy

    1. hi lucy! You know i really didn't change my makeup products although I'm sure there are some ingredients in their to could be avoided. I did change a lot of my facial cleansing products via my dermatologist request (i had no clue so many things should be avoided). Ill def do a post ASAP on what products i used during pregnancy and a link to a site that was really helpful for me on products to avoid.

  4. I LOVE your blog! Would you ever consider doing a photo home tour? You have such great taste, I'd love to see your home design style!!!
