Summer Wish List

Summer Accessories | To B Candid | Maternity Style

After taking an unexpected hiatus from the blog and social media. I’m back! True to the saying work hard, play hard, April was full of travel, while May was spent grinding away making up for lost time, and now it’s almost the middle of June (palm meet face). I’m now 30.5 weeks pregnant with twins (almost 8 months), and I’m close to measuring the size of someone who is full term. With potentially 7.5 more weeks to go, I’m getting a little nervous what the end result might look like. I’ve already outgrown some of my maternity clothes, and am heavily rotating the remaining 3-5 dresses that still fit while relying on accessories and outerwear to make it seem like I’m not wearing the same thing all. the. time.

Popped with Pops of Color

After taking a few weeks off, I’m back! The month of April flew by, maybe because I was on a plane every week, but I’m one of those crazy people that live for hectic weeks. From non-stop work meetings to personal travel, it was nice to shift my focus and take a break from the blog. As I prep for one of my last trips before my Doctor revokes my travel privileges, I am taking advantage of my last bit of solo flying before the twins arrive.

Bump-Date: 22 Weeks

When you’re a Type A personality, you attack most things in life with a plan. So naturally, going into this pregnancy I had mentally made notes of things I wanted to do: go as far along in the labor process before asking for an epidural, attempt to breastfeed, do everything to avoid an emergency c-section, etc. Then I found out we were having twins, and I’m slowly learning how to relinquish my Type A tendencies because being a mom of twins does not allow for that type of personality. It’s been awhile since I’ve done a pregnancy update, and to be honest, I haven’t had much to say because (knock on wood) it’s been pretty smooth sailing so far. For the most part I’ve had lots of energy, been working long days at work in preparation for maternity leave later this summer, going to Orange Theory classes, and getting lots of walks in with our dog. It wasn’t until last Sunday I had my first pregnancy meltdown…

Charleston, South Carolina

The word winter has been so foreign to me the last handful of years in California. With the extended rain that has taken place into spring, Justin and I couldn’t have thought of a better escape than to head south to visit his family for a much needed long weekend. It wasn’t until a few years ago that some of Justin’s family and grandma moved to the south, so it was actually our first visit to the state! I’ve had Charleston on my bucket list of places to visit in the US for years, and it was such a treat that our trip exceeded expectations. Without a doubt, my favorite cities to visit are the ones where locals can share their favorite go-to spots or even act as our tour guides. We left with such a love for the area that we are dreaming of renting a beach house for our next trip back to stay longer — what’s even more bizarre to think is that we’ll have the twins with us for when we return! Eek!
