Rossmore NecklaceIMG_4713One week to go until the due date! 

1. I’ve been wearing this Rossmore Imperfect Circle Necklace every day. Laura was our winner for the Rossmore giveaway! Thank you so much for participating. Keep an eye out for presales on Rossmore’s Instagram. Suzy is always coming up with new things and she even does custom work.

I’ve also been rocking fake lashes for no occasion whatsoever other than distracting from what I feel are very chubby arms.

2. We are going to turn into watermelons. I’ve been serving it up almost daily now. Last night I made a fruit salad with fresh whipped cream. INCREDIBLE.

MOCKTAILS. I have always been just a water person (or a whiskey person) but now I drink sparkling mineral water mixed with things like….you guessed it-watermelon juice, or OJ or mango nectar. Topping it off with a straw just makes my day. We usually use re-usable straws. I have these paper ones that I bought in bulk at Marshalls a while back. 

3. People have been over-the-top with compliments in these last days of pregnancy. It is so kind and I know that people want me to feel great. It’s working. 

4. Stephanie from The Loudmouth Lifestyle wrote something very nice about me on her blog! That feels so wonderful!

5. Here’s a cute lunchbox giveaway with some awesome bloggers this week. 

Have a gorgeous weekend. XO

  • You look gorgeous! I cannot believe it’s just one week, by the time in my first pregnancy I was a puffy mess. You look amazing and I am so excited for you!

    • You are too nice! Thank you! Look, my legs were like tree trunks or clubs. lol Somehow my face didn’t get really puffy but everything else did! Most of it’s gone but I still have achey joints! It’s crazy how people have totally different body things with pregnancy!

    I can’t believe you have one more week left. I am pregnant as well, almost 15 weeks, and I can’t imagine how it must feel to be so close to your due date. Finger crossed for an easy delivery!

    • You know, it was shocking to have the baby come early but I appreciate how it all turned out. 🙂 So excited for you. This is so incredible!

  • Oh how exciting that you’re in the home stretch! You are looking great and your freckles are so adorable! I want some watermelon now 🙂 Enjoy the weekend Christina!

    • That was a fast home stretch! I knew he was going to be early! ha! Thanks for the freckle love! Hope you are doing so great, Rowena!

  • ahhh can’t believe it’s only one more week! you are looking great – love the necklace and the lashes. i have pretty much no eyelashes (thanks mom ha), so i always feel more polished in false lashes too. have a good weekend!

    • That week never happened! AH! I’m totally addicted to falsies now. I remember when I first learned how to curl my lashes and freeze them with mascara. I never turned back…:)
