Welcome Aveline! Our Birth Story after Secondary Infertility


We welcomed our second daughter, Aveline Elisabeth just last week early in the morning on Thursday November 9 and we could not be happier. Even though this has seemed like such a long journey, the pregnancy has actually passed by pretty quickly! Even our families have commented on how fast it has gone by and they have known since pretty early on. I tried to enjoy each minute (although after week 38 that did get a little difficult).

Favorite Casual Fall Outfits & Confident Twosday Linkup


What a week it has been! I was due this past Saturday, but ended up going into labor a bit early on Wednesday night and giving birth early Thursday morning to our beautiful daughter Aveline. I am working on a post with her birth story for Thursday, but for today I put together my favorite casual fall looks. Since I am on maternity leave until mid-February, I am looking forward to wearing lots of casual looks with some of these items again...once I have energy to get out of my lounge pants!

I got this dress last fall from Makemechic and I have worn it on the blog 4 ways now! You can see it Two Ways for Fall here and with a fur vest here. Of course it's a good deal shorter now that I am wearing it over a 9 month baby bump, but it's still just as comfortable! This time I wore it with leggings, booties, and layered my new white vest over top. You can see how I wore this vest last time here.  It is so nice to have a piece like this dress that is so easy to pair with items and remix!

Life Lately | October

October was such a great month! We had a lot of activities and all the extra of making sure everything is organized and planned for when the baby comes. I was glad for all the fun we had because it made the month fly by!

Happy Halloween everyone! Did you dress up or go to any parties? Our weekend was filled with carving pumpkins and trick or treating. We went to a Halloween event for kids at a local high school with games and crafts, too. Where we live, trick or treating is the weekend before Halloween so by the actual day, we don't do much except enjoy left over candy!
