Floral Shift Dress & anticipation!

Hello all!

I hope you had a fantastic weekend. We had a great one and had some family come to visit. It's always so great to have them here! And you've probably noticed by my title I'm already feeling the anticipation of baby boy on the way, the possibility of moving to a different state and match day! Gah! Although the moving part isn't until next year around Marchish. If you are wondering what is 'match' day, it's the day that my honey bun is told where we will end up for his anesthesia residency. Basically medical students apply to several schools that have their desired specialty program (ig. dermatology, anesthesia, surgery, internal medicine). Students are usually encouraged to apply to several to improve their chances of receiving an interview and getting ranked by a school. 

A 'match' for a student & a school depends on both the students application and the program they are applying to (number of open slots, difficulty to get into etc.) Then by some sort of equation students are "matched" to a program that chose/ranked them after their interviews! And you never know exactly where you will end up, because there are no guarantees. Unless of course you only ranked one school, and only interviewed at one school as well. But that is usually discouraged unless you know without a shadow of a doubt that you will be accepted. And there is always a chance that you will not be ranked by that school even if you ranked them. Phew! As much as my husband has been told (handshakes, nods) that he can apply to one and be accepted, he is NOT into gambling haha especially with our families future. So he is applying to a few in the MidWest area. Interviews will be taking place in October, November and maybe December. Yes, a couple of the months that baby boy may be born! We are both excited, thrilled and anxious! We are hoping for one specific program (the most) but are keeping an open mind as well. I trust everything will be okay! 

My husband is submitting his application in the next few weeks (hence the anticipation!) and we would appreciate any positive thoughts, prayers and vibes our way. We also found out that he made the AOA Honor Society! We are so incredibly proud and happy for him! He has worked so tirelessly these past few years and it is so wonderful for him to have this recognition and honor. 

Well if you made it through all of that haha! Here is my date night look from this past weekend. This dress is so beautiful and the fit is perfect for my bump. Even though it is not maternity. It was a great buy as well! Have a great week ahead!

paisley love

Happy Sunday! I am trying to stretch out these last few weeks of summer by wearing as many dresses and maxis as possible. And I found this great paisley print maxi at Marshalls this week. They are getting all of their fall inventory in, which means this (originally $50) dress was only $10, score! I'd say check it out if you have one close by, heck it's worth the drive if you have one further away! I linked up some great similar options!

I hope this week is wonderful for you, I'm excited to check off some more summer fun activities for our little familia! And I can't wait to share them with you :) And I am getting more and more excited to meet this little dude! I am 28 weeks today (pics taken yesterday).

We were able to visit the state Fair this past weekend, and it was so wonderful! Gabriel really loved seeing all of the animals, but wasn't too sure about the footlong hotdog haha!

brights & hello 3rd trimester!

Hi lovelies! I hope your weekend was fabulous. We had a great one, and were able to head out to the state fair as a family! I'll be sharing more pictures of our visit in a separate post!

This weekend I wore this super cute bright dress that I adore! I ordered it from She Inside, and I was a bit nervous of how it would fit. The size is "one size" but how often are those even accurate?! I went for it either way, because well it's a great deal! Turns out it fit perfectly with my bump. I think it'll work well post pregnancy as well, since the top has a bit of stretch. It came with these gemstones (glued on to the top half) that I was not a fan of. I removed them, and they came off rather quickly. Other than that, the quality is good, and I erred on the safe side and washed it by hand. I posted a link to the dresses and a few other colors that are available. 

I'm also in my third trimester now at 27 weeks, and I am in shock!

Prints and Embroidered

Happy Monday lovelies! I hope you all had a great weekend. Our weekend was great, we were able to enjoy the outdoors and gobble up some cream puffs! Earlier last week I went to the Third Ward , and I realized I don't get out there often enough. Naturally, I had to visit my favorite boutique there (Lela's) and found this gorgeous Desigual dress waiting for me in the consignment section. It had me at printed and embroidered! It's also perfectly in season with all of the details that are so popular right now. I linked up a variety of dresses, that are also fun and unique!

I hope you all have a great week ahead, don't forget to breathe!
