When will this Winter
When will this Winter
My little is almost a month old. It’s so hard to believe that it has been a whole month since my little one arrived. As you can see from this post, I am still playing catch up. The last few weeks of my pregnancy were very exhausting; and I didn’t feel like doing much of anything, hence, the reason this post should have been published a month ago.
This photo was taken exactly a week before I went into labor; and at 37 and half weeks pregnant, I was definitely ready to move on to the next chapter.
This Liz Lange Maternity dress from Target was another one of my favorite things to wear during my pregnancy because of its comfort and versatility. I was also drawn to it because it reminded me of my favorite maternity line, Isabella Oliver, but at a fraction of the cost!
Two weeks ago today, my little bundle of joy arrived. I am 37 weeks and 5 days in this photo, and I had no idea I was exactly a week away from bringing another life into to world.
This Isabella Oliver maxi dress has taken me through the several seasons. It is one of my favorite items to grab when I am in a hurry because of its versatility. Throw on a jacket, blazer, or cardigan, and you have a totally different look.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know; I am no longer sporting my baby bump. Yes, you heard me correctly. I went into labor late Sunday night. I will be sharing my birth story and Baby Ali with you real soon.
The hubby and I recently discovered the most wonderful place to hang out on the weekends, Star Provisions. Don’t you just love it when you find new places in your city? Bacchanalia makes the best rueben sandwich I have ever had in my life. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
As you can see, it started raining. Not good for the hair!
I found a Free People store on the directory, so I decided to see if they had something I could save my hair from becoming a disaster.
This printed wideband was just what I was looking for.
There was a young lady doing free henna in the store, so I decided to stay and give it a try. She was super sweet and she did an awesome job. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of my hand after the henna fell off.

Linking up with Style Sessions.
I have really enjoyed dressing my bump as is has become bigger. Now, I won’t lie; I have run into a few challenges. Along with the bump growing, my hips and thighs have taken a hit too; but I am not complaining. It’s a small price to pay for the little miracle thats growing inside of me. I thank God everyday for this blessing!
