Pin Fifteen: The first What to Wear~ What to Wear Inspiration

Back in March, my friend & Guest Blogger Shel wrote about the Neon trend & I promised myself to get on board...I didnt get very far but this Zara dress I found on Pinterest inspired me to try this Neonishcolour of green...Therefore, since this also inspired the first What to Wear ~ What to Wear blog, it is Pin Fifteen...

 
Being 5 months pregnant I couldnt fit into the slim fit Zara dress if I tried, but found this comparative one at Old Navy...It had a bit of room & could fit my little bump...I added the belt & was good to go...Shel does this meet the Neon challenge a bit?

Noal vs Baby Girl

So, this pregnancy has been so different compared with Noals...For starters with Noal I was on bed rest for a good month & went insane near the beginning whereas with Baby Girls I didnt even know I was pregnant till the 3rd month...With Noals I felt great the whole way through- gained a lot probably too much weight, but felt fantastic- I was a little bit nauseated at the beginning & didnt want to touch meat but could eat anything...With Baby Girls I have had moments where the bathroom is too far away & Ive had to puke in the kitchen garbage- Awesome! Also the thought of seafood, chicken or coffee made my insides flip...But I've been craving red meat, icecream & penny candy- Great for the baby & me I'm sure... My skin, hair & body felt great with Noal whereas with her Im breaking out constantly, my hair is outta control & my thumbs have gone completely numb & the heels on my feet are in excruciating pain...With Noals time moved slowly & I really got to enjoy every sensation of being pregnant- with hers time has flown by, shes gonna be here in 3 short months & Im so busy chasing my one year old that I have to remind myself to take moments to take er easy & feel her move...Funny how two pregnancies so close in time can be so completely different...Heres hoping she triumphs over Noal with a better labour...

I'm a Little Humpback

My Bubs is starting to realize something is happening to his Mummas tummy...He constantly wants to see my belly growing, pokes his sticky fingers in my belly button & is figuring out ways to cuddle around it...


Im almost 6 month prego now & have quite the belly on me, I cant imagine what Noal is going to think/do when Im 9 months prego & as big as a humpback whale...The hubs has even started calling me his little humpback...Most woman would hate that but I find it endearing...

The time bomb is about to go off...

Having this little blog break has been really nice...As much as I love writing & sharing my thoughts- Its been a surprisingly nice break to not have to think about this blog...That being said, Im always thinking of ideas for the blog- My mum is a compulsive list maker & I unfortunately didnt get that gene- Therefore, once a thought enters my mind its either there for good or gone forever...So, to all those ideas that will never grace the pages of this blog, can you come back to me?

You know when you give up exercising or a routine & then its impossibly hard to get back into it? Well, thats kind of how I feel right now about writing...I dont know if its the summer & weather, the fantastic Olympics distracting me or just wanting to spend as much possible time with my Bubs before heading back to work- whatever it is I apologize that this blog is so random- I guess its a lot like me...

So, on to the dreading time bomb of heading back to work, I only have a few more weeks...I am so not looking forward to going back- this time with Noal has been amazing- watching him grow, being here for every moment & the thought of not having that kills me...I realize here in Canada we are extremely lucky for our mat leaves & I cant complain but oh how I wish I could stay with him & this new baby girl for a few years...There is certain things I like about him going to a daycare but when I lay awake at night thinking about life I cant help but feel suffocated by the time bomb about to go off...But then I feel baby girl kick & smile & think to myself its only for a couple months & then Im off again with them both...Its funny cause before I went off on mat leave for Noal, I truly was one of those gals who wasnt sure if a whole year was for me- I loved my job, didnt want to losemyself & thought I would be bored at home with a baby all day...And now a year later Ive lost myself completely, Im still me t, but Im a momma through & through & Id give anything to stay at home with my kids...So to all ya ladies who get that chance, Im  extremely jealous...

Noal Turn’s One- Wish I could pause life...

So, as mentioned my trip home was amazing...lots of time with family & friends, celebrated Noals first birthday & ate like it was my job...Because it was just me & my Bubs {for 2 weeks till the hubs could meet us} we got to really spend a lot of time with my girlfriends & their kiddos which was lovely...


I got to meet my good friend Focks little girl for the first time, see old friends I dont normally get the chance to & my friend Muls even had her baby while I was there...Welcome to the world Maddox!!!

Being 5 months prego & having so many food options compared to in my small town life- I literally went to town...I cant even tell you the amount of times I had sushi, cannolis, & pizza and enjoy it I did...It was also amazing to see my little brother & parents with Noal- I know Im in love with him but watching my parents with him is something else...My dad- aka Gramps is like a big toy all the time & Noal couldnt get enough of him...And my mum is just in heaven anytime hes around...She bought him a pool, let him destroy her kitchen, created a playroom with more toys than he has at home & did everything for his little party...We celebrated Noals first birthday while away- I cant believe he is one...this has honestly been the fastest year I can ever remember & more than ever I wish you could pause life...Noal is at such a fun, curious & busy stage...Here is just some of the things he got into while away...








On Noals actual birthday we brought him to a place I use to go to as a little girl all the time, Colasantis- Where he pet his first goat, sheep & deer, saw his mum get scared silly of the goats attacking her & had his first homemade sugar donut...

Noal also experienced his first splashpad & loved it...couldnt get enough of it- We had to send in Gramps fully clothed who didnt mind one bit & ended up soaked just to see his grandson smile...



All in All it was a lovely day with my little man who was full of smiles, spoiled rotten & more loved than any little boy around..
