I hope that you all had a great Easter weekend. Here are a few pictures from our weekend that we took just with my phone. It was such a fun weekend and I broke the rules a little bit and decided to do a few things. I just did't want to miss out completely on Andi's first Easter. 

On Saturday we took her to her first Easter egg hunt in our neighborhood. There were so many people and she was just kind of mesmerized by the whole thing. It was really cute. She did get a few eggs. And they had a petting zoo. She fed the goats and was not scared at all. I think I lasted like 15 minutes sitting on a bench before I decided I should go back home. But at least I got to go and take some cute pictures of her. 

Then On Sunday all of my family came to my house. Which was so nice. Andi has the best time playing with her cousins. We had a Easter egg hunt in the house and just hung out and played and ate. My niece spent the night which Andi just thought was the best ting in the world. She is almost 5 and Andi just loves her to death! 

It was a really good weekend and it felt so good to actually fix my hair, put on makeup and get dressed. Thank you all so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great day.

I know it has been so long since I have done a blog post! So today I wanted to share a few of my most recent Instagram pictures since I can't actually take any blog photos. So here are the links to everything that I have been posting on Instagram lately, mostly pajamas!

I also just wanted to share a little bit about what life has been like since I got put on bed rest, why I got put on bed rest and what the next few months look like. I realized yesterday I haven't really shared much about it other then a post on Instagram. 

I got put on complete bed rest over two weeks ago. I started having some spotting on a Friday night. We called the Dr. they said if it keeps happening to come to the hospital. So Saturday morning I went in. They did an ultra sound which revealed that I have complete Placenta previa. I was told at 20 weeks I had Marginal previa but apparently It had changed. So they sent me home on complete bed rest. 

Now we have just been in this annoying waiting stage. We are waiting to get another ultra sound to see if there has been any movement away from my cervix. Thankfully I have not had any spotting or bleeding since then. So we have a little less then 2 weeks now until the ultra sound. If there isn't any movement then that means I will have to remain on complete bed rest until the end of my pregnancy and depending on what is going on (if I have been bleeding and the health of the baby) he will most likely be born 3 or 4 weeks early. But if it does move then I could hopefully go back to doing some of my normal daily things. So we are just waiting and praying that it moves. 

This has really been the hardest thing I have ever gone through. Andi is 14 months old and I am not able to pick her up at all and I am really not able to do much with her. I actually haven't left my house since being put on bed rest. They told me they don't want me going on unnecessary car rides. So It has been so difficult. We are so lucky that my mom has been able to come from North Carolina to stay with us since this has happened. She basically does everything for us! And Andi loves her so much. Matt works full time so I honestly don't know what we would be doing without my mom. 

I have spent a lot of time being scared. I have read a lot on the internet about placenta previa and it really scares me to death. I have stopped reading because it really doesn't help me. It helps to hear positive stories but google always seems to have the worst case scenarios. I have done my fair share of crying. Pretty much at some point everyday. I am trying my hardest to stay positive and just have faith that everything will be ok. But somedays are harder then others. 

Before this happened I literally did pretty much everything for Andi. Obviously I am a stay at home mom and she is everything to me. So this has really rocked my world. It is so hard for me to just lay in bed and know that there are so many things I am missing out on. There are so many things that I wish i was doing with her. Even just the little things like putting her in her crib, giving her a bath or just picking her up when she falls down and hurts herself. It breaks my heart!

Like I said I am trying to be positive and think about all of the good in my life but it gets hard at times. Andi is healthy and happy and I know she isn't going to remember this time so that keeps me going. But everyday is a challenge for me. Matt has been amazing through all of this. He works full time and does so many of the things that I normally would be doing. My mom went home this past weekend and Matt did everything by himself all weekend. 

I know I am doing what I have to do for me and my baby. And this is totally out of my control. So I am just trying to find the good in the situation and have faith that it will all be ok. But I have never wanted something to be over so badly in my life. I just want our baby to be here and us both to be healthy and just move on with our lives. 

Thank you all so much for all of the prayers and messages. We could use all the prayers we can get! Your support means so much.

Bright for Spring...

Top: Lush ($34 comes in 5 colors) also love this and this, Jeans: Ag Maternity from a pea in the pod similar here (on sale!) also love these and these, Shoes: Five Worlds (so comfortable) also love these (on sale) and these, Bag: Louis Vuitton similar here, Sunglasses: Karen Walker (on sale), Earrings: Bauble Bar (obsessed), Watch: Tory Burch c/o


I love this easy top! You can't beat it for $34. It is a great Spring and Summer basic and it comes in five different colors. 

Ok I am always looking for comfortable shoes. I had never heard of the brand Five Worlds before. But I saw these and thought they were really cute but then when I tried them on I was sold! They seriously are so comfortable. I was shocked that a comfort shoe brand made such cute shoes. 

Don't forget to shop the Shopbop Spring sale that is going on. I linked some of my favorites in yesterday's post. I am planning on ordering a couple of things today. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Shopbop Spring Sale...








I know that I mentioned yesterday that Shopbop is having a really great Spring Sale! You can get up to 25% off of your order by using the code BIGEVENT16. The more you shop the more you save.

There are so many great things included in this sale. Some that I already have and there are so many great things that I have my eye on and am planning on ordering. My absolute favorite Rag and Bone shorts are on sale. I got these last year after having Andi. And I lived in them all summer. I can't wait to wear them again. They are worth the money!

Also I just picked up this Tory Burch wallet. I have this in yellow from last year and it has been such a great wallet that I got it in this color for Spring. And my favorite Free People dress is also included. 
Shopbop has a great selection of Free People, which happens to be one of my favorite brands. 

One more thing! I have these Rebecca Minkoff sandals. I got them last year during this sale and I love them. They are very similar to the Valentino sandals that I just bought but a fraction of the price. They are really comfortable! 

I linked some more of my favorites that I either already have or that I am craving. This is such a good  sale to stock up on Spring and Summer items. Happy shopping.
