Shoes for Baby B!

MFB and I found out we were having a boy when I had my 20-week ultrasound. We were SO happy and we just can't wait to meet him. We'll be sitting on the couch watching TV and one of us will say, "I wish the baby was here!" I know, I know, we need to enjoy our alone time while we have it and get as much sleep as possible and blah, blah, blah, but we are just so excited!!! I'm really trying to retrain myself when it comes to shopping for the little dude. Our family members and friends have already started buying up a storm for him, which is SO sweet, so I really don't even need to go shopping. HOWEVER, some things are just way too cute to not buy ;) I've found my heart melts the most looking at little shoes. Here are some I'm eying right now:

Weekend Recap: Swampscott, MA

This past weekend MFB and I went home to visit his parents and siblings. On Saturday we went with this parents to check out Pottery Barn Baby where we found a crib that just might be the one! That night we had dinner at the The Corinthian overlooking the harbor and saw a beautiful sunset. On Sunday we celebrated Father's Day at MFB's brother's house with a nice BBQ. I explained to my two year old nephew that there was a baby in my stomach he replied, "well open it up!" I told him I couldn't open up my stomach just yet, but soon there would be a little boy cousin for him to play with and he said, "that is going to be funny!" Too cute.

Newsflash: We're Expecting!!!

Picture taken at 13 weeks!
I am SO excited to announce that MFB and I are expecting! I am 21 weeks now and I'm feeling great. Michael and I feel so incredibly blessed and we are so excited to start our family (we plan to have a big one!!!). We are so thrilled to start this next chapter in our lives.
 Written at 13 Weeks:
When did you find out? President's Day Weekend! That Saturday I finally dropped my wedding dress off to be cleaned/preserved. I'm so glad I decided to try it on one last time because 2 days later I found out I was pregnant!
Who was the first person you told? MFB of course! I had always planned that I'd find some creative way to reveal to him that I was pregnant when the time came, but when the test came back positive I immediately ran into the bedroom crying with joy to tell him!
How did you tell your family? We decided not to tell anyone until we made it through the 1st trimester. It was like TORTURE! I still can't believe I was able to do it. When I finally made it to 13 weeks, I told my mom and sister by giving them grandma & godmother greeting cards and then presented my dad with a NY Giants onesie in front of my other siblings. Everyone was so thrilled!
 When did you start experiencing symptoms? I started getting morning sickness right on schedule at around 6 weeks and it was non-stop through week 12. You basically feel like you have a horrible hangover every morning. Fun stuff!
When did you start showing? It started becoming uncomfortable to wear pants/jeans at the waist at around 8 weeks, but my belly didn't really start to grow until I was 12 weeks.
Did anyone suspect you were pregnant before you started telling people? Nope! I stopped drinking about 2 months before I actually became pregnant, so no one suspected anything once I really was pregnant! This is a great tactic to use if you are trying, but want to keep it under wraps until you make it through the 1st trimester :)
Worst moment? At just 6 weeks I got in a car accident on the highway. Someone rear-ended me in bumper to bumper traffic, but because I was pregnant and paranoid I reacted as if I had just lost my legs or something lol. The poor man who hit me must have been terrified, but luckily I calmed down and called my doctor and she assured me that the baby would be fine. Phew! 
Best moment? Seeing the "human like" figure on the 8-week ultrasound and seeing/hearing the heartbeat for the first time.
Do you think it is a boy or a girl? We both think it is a boy at this point.
What are you most excited for in the second trimester? SO many things! 1) Feeling the baby kick 2) Finding out the sex! 3) Having my belly "pop"
Have you made any purchases yet? #duh

Weekend Recap: Bristol, Rhode Island

MFK and I had an awesome weekend in RI. Unfortunately, we hit horrible traffic on our way there and back and the 3.5 hour trip turned into a 5.5 hour trip, BUT it was totally worth it. MFK's house is sooooo beautiful and it was so nice to relax by the pool and take walks by the water. If you are ever in the area, stopping by Daily Scoop for ice cream (loved the banana peanut butter & cookies and cream flavors) and lunch on the water at Thames Water Side are a must!

Time for new goggles!

Sadly, I dropped my glasses and need some replacements. I've had my RL glasses for about 3 years now, so I guess it is time for a change anyway. I decided to give Warby Parker a shot since I've heard good things about their glasses and you can get an eye exam in the store as well. Because they are priced so well, I'm even thinking of getting some sunglasses too! Here are some I'm definitely trying on tonight:
