25 Weeks Bumpdate

I really hate missing a week of blogging but we have been busy bee's with the house & kids and I just didn't have time!  To make up for it I have an awesome giveaway I'll be hosting on Instagram for you this week that you wont want to miss!  Until then, a 25 week bumpdate is in order:)

How far along?  25 weeks and 1 day

Total weight gain/loss?  19 lbs.

Maternity clothes? Yes. All maternity everythang.

Stretch marks?  No

Sleep? I would probably sleep a lot better if my kids would allow it!  Including the littlest, right as I'm about to fall asleep he starts kicking.

Best moment this week? The ultrasound was a highlight!  And also learning that I don't have low blood pressure anymore.  That was definitely a relief.

Worst moment this week? Finding out our Pediatrician passed away.  She was a wonderful young lady that turned into a friend and the news hit me hard.  I'm sure my pregnancy hormones aren't helping but it's been hard to accept and weighs on my mind often.  She will be missed.

Miss Anything? Being comfortable! 

Movement? Yes.

Food cravings? Fruit

Anything making you queasy or sick?  Not really queasy or sick but like I mentioned before my pelvis is in a lot pain.

Have you started to show yet? Yes

Gender? Boy and from the looks of it at the ultrasound, a very handsome little boy:)

Labor Signs? No

Belly Button in or out? In


Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood? Generally up beat and positive considering how much pain I'm in.


Looking forward to?  St. Patrick's Day, moving into our new house (minus the physical moving part) and picking out a name for our little guy!


Check out my Instagram account (@reederandco) for a super fun giveaway later this week! XOXO

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!  Hope everyone had the loveliest Valentines Day!  I had an ultrasound and we got to see little brother on the big screen, growing perfectly and healthy as can be.  We are already so in love!  I'm off for another long 3 day weekend but before I go I wanted to round up some amazing Friday Favorites!

For all my Bachelor Nation peeps this awesome wine glass is a must!  I'm missing my Monday nights when I used to curl up on the coach with a glass of wine to watch the Bachelor. I keep telling myself next season I'll be back at it!  I'm surprised at how much Corinne doesn't bother me.  I actually really like her.  Do I think Nick will pick her? No.  Do I think she is hilarious and want to be her best friend? Yes!

So many winter boots and booties are going on sale right now.  I came across these, these and these and figured since they're on sale I might as well snatch up all three.  All of which are perfect for spring and are super comfortable and even cuter in person!

I'm loving the June & January line for baby #3.  With Brad I was really into monochrome outfits but this time around I'm really feeling all the bright colors.  I know black and white is timeless but all these colors are totally in right now especially for babies.  Another website that looks awesome (but I've never purchased from them) is Primary.  They've been popping up in my Pinterest feed, maybe worth a try.

We've been buying a ton of ruby red grapefruit as I've been craving them (along with raspberries and blackberries) a lot lately.  This grapefruit recipe looks To. Die. For.  I may need to try it this weekend! 

Marc Jacob Beauty sent a few of their Matte Highliner Eye Pencil from their new spring collection and I am hooked!  These eyeliners glide on like a gel/liquid liner, dry quickly and last all day with no running or smudging.  They can help achieve a perfect smoky eye or precise wing.  They also come with a built in sharpener.  After using this eyeliner for a couple weeks now I won't be going back to my old.  So good.

Lastly but certainly not least, I've hooked up with Happy Little Camper's and have been using their all natural organic baby wipes.  I've been so happy with their products as they use the purest natural ingredients which is so important to me, especially for Brad's extra sensitive skin!  

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  We decided on a preschool this week for Charlie and are excited to go for a tour.  I can't believe he starts school this year!  Let a whole new level of anxiety begin!

*I received some featured products complimentary for review and promotional purposes.  All opinions are my own.

Pregnancy Must- Haves

I can't believe I'm already over half way through this pregnancy and boy oh boy has it taken it's toll on my body. I'm exhausted, my back hurts, my feet are swollen by the end of the day and I'm already starting to feel that dreaded pelvic pain which will only get worse as times goes on.  Frankly, I'm feeling like an old lady and it's not fun.  I've rounded up my pregnancy must-haves which by the way are looking a lot different than pregnancies past.  You can find older Pregnancy Must-Haves here, here, here & here!  It's all about comfort management this time around!

ONE  TWO  THREE  FOUR  FIVE  SIX

I just got the Blanqi body shapers in white and black and so far they have been an excellent source of support.  I wish I would have had them during my last pregnancy.  I also got the pregnancy belt which I have a feeling will be paired with the shaper in the very near future.  I'm also really loving my St. Tropez in shower tanning lotion.  It definitely takes a few applications to notice results but I love that it eliminates an extra step after the shower of applying lotion or a self tanner because #aintnobodygottimeforthat.  
Thankfully, this is a super busy and exciting time for me as we are getting closer and closer to moving in to our new house so I don't have much time to sit around and sulk about how I feel 33 going on 80.  Plus, the boys don't give a shit that my insides feel like they are about to fall out, so I still get to chase them around the house breaking up fights, cleaning spilled Goldfish and reenacting Angry Birds being shot out of a cannon and blowing up the town!
Happy Thursday, Friends!  Today's my Friday so I'll be signing off for a nice long three day weekend:) XO

Valentine Favorites

Happy February and YAY for Valentines Day right around the corner!  I'm especially excited for Valentines Day this year because we have an ultrasound scheduled to see little brother that day!  I really couldn't think of a better way to spend the day♡  I've put together some V-Day favorites for the boys, including the cutest Be Mine jersey tees and Love Machine PJ's!  So many heart eyes!

I am also so in love with my heart shaped waffle maker!  I try and use it throughout the year but it's a must on Valentines Day. As a child I have so many fun memories of waking up to fun goody bags and special breakfasts from my mom on Valentines Day so I love doing the same for my boys.  
Even though some say it's a Hallmark holiday I'll never pass up a day dedicated to showing the ones I love how special they are to me.  Hope everyone has a great rest of the week and is enjoying the snow!
XO
