• Knocked-Up Chronicles: 30 Weeks

    All right. Dirty 30. Let’s do this! #MFE turned to me today and said “So, really, if you give birth on your due date, it’ll be 40 weeks. That’s 10 months.” To which I responded “Yeah, it’s some bullshit!” Because it is — they say nine months, but they don’t account for the month from

  • Second Trimester Survival Guide

    Now that I’m solidly into the third trimester (whew!) and beginning the final countdown, I thought I’d share those little things that helped get me through the last few months — just like I did for that horrible first trimester. The second leg of this gestational journey was a helluva lot smoother than the first

    While it’s mostly been business as usual around here, I did break up the monotony by joining my husband on a work jaunt to San Antonio this week, which was a nice little diversion. I love taking road trips with him and just spending time with him in general. While I did take my laptop

  • Knocked-Up Chronicles: 28 Weeks

    And here we are, officially in the third trimester! I feel bigger every day, with some days presenting more of a “full” feeling where everything is achy and the big bump in front of me is a lot less pliable. I’m starting to also feel the effects of the “nesting” stage, with wanting to get

  • Knocked-Up Chronicles: 27 Weeks

    It’s been a busy week around here, with some highs and some lows, but mostly smooth sailing. Trying to get all my work lined up for some time off has proven to be a little difficult, but it’s an undertaking I’m happy to accept. Today marks the start of Week 27, which is also the

    As much as traveling for business is always great and I so loved my suite that ShareASale put me up in at ThinkTank, it’s always nice to be back in my own bed with my husband and kitties (and with my Snoogle). I’ve had a whole heap of emails to catch up on and a

  • Knocked-Up Chronicles: 25 Weeks

    After all the excitement of last week, this week’s been considerably more quiet. My mind has been focused heavily on work, dealing with some WordPress plugin issues and social media drama on The Broke-Ass Bride, meeting with and organizing couples for Little Wedding Extras, working on posts for this blog ahead of ThinkTank and preparing for

  • Knocked-Up Chronicles: 24 Weeks

    It was a big week for us: After nearly four years together, #MFE and I made it legal and got married by a Justice of the Peace. There were a few stumbling blocks along the way as far as pulling together my look (I’m in the wedding biz, I’m picky), but we made it work.

  • Knocked-Up Chronicles: 23 Weeks

    This week, I got the cutest present from two of my cousins — and was awed and proud to learn one of them had actually knit the hat for herself (she has an Etsy shop, y’all!). I also finally pulled together all the pieces of my wedding outfit, so that’s finally gonna happen. Woot!  As
