Brain explosion & the sweetest stationery you ever did see.

Ask me if I cared about the Superbowl last night. Okay, don't. You may hate me because, honestly, I didn't care one bit. Now, if our Eagles were in it....that'd be another story. 

Typically, I'd care about the superbowl for one reason....the delicious spread of yummy, fatty mcfatty finger foods. I practically drool thinking about it. But, I digress.

I'll move on.

13 pounds. 


That's more than my dog weighs. I have lost a Mac. A big-Mac. Hardy har har. No really, though. I'm pretty proud of myself, and also? Kind of disgusted at the same time. Glad it's gone. I'm now 6lbs under the weight I was before getting pregnant...feels good.

Friday night we had Declan's family over and Emeline got to hang out with her 5-week-younger (but taller) cousin, Ian. Watch your eyes, the cuteness is blinding.

We're headed back to the doctor today for two reasons. One, a follow up from last week to see how the breathing treatments are working, and two, for her 9 month appointment.

Nine months, you guys. 


That is three months away from having a one year old.

Let the birthday party planning begin. Err, continue. I may or may not have most things underway already. Ahem. 

Speaking of birthday party planning & stuff...

Hope Loves Cards is my first technical sponsor on Loves of Life. Exciting, eh? They make some of the most beautiful cards, stationery, cupcake toppers, invitations, etc--but, the neat thing is they are personalized to look like your little one. Cute, huh? You get to customize skin color, hair color, hair style, etc. Such a fab idea.

I'll show you what I mean:

Simply adorable and reasonably priced. 

Head on over to their Etsy shop and use code LOVESOFLIFE20OFF for 20% off your purchase of $25 or more. Also, their main website is pretty cute, too.


Alright lovelies, we're off to the pediatrician...yet again. I'm pretty sure I've gone broke on co-pays alone this month. I need springtime. And park-time. And sunshine on my face. And...and....well, you get it.

Happy Monday.

  7. Congrats on the weight loss! I am starting a boot camp class at the end of Feb. for 6 weeks. I need tonage stat! Can you lose some weight for me, too? I can't seem to not buy Skittles and Resse's Pieces.

  8. 13 pounds puts you a total rockstar status in my book. After this baby is born, and hoping I get back to my starting weight, I have about 15-20 I want to lose. You inspire me!
