Maternity Style | Date Night & Outfit Drama | 26 Weeks Pregnant

26 weeks pregnant edmonton blogger

During our last date night I had a prominent wardrobe malfunction!

We were at a charity dinner and the room’s general demographic was 60+ years old – about a hour into the dinner I needed to go to the washroom. As soon as I entered an elderly lady told me she needed to tell me something, I stood there gawking “Yes??”. And she proceeded to tell me you could see my underwear THROUGH my skirt. *insert screaming emoji face*

I didn’t get ready at home earlier that day – we dropped the girls off at Matt’s parents house and I got ready there before the dinner, so when I packed that morning coordinating undergarments were the last thing on my mind. But in all honesty, there should be no excuses!

I thanked the elderly lady, because you never want to be walking around a room and no-one has the guts to tell you your underwear is being advertised (though it could have been worse and my skirt could have been tucked into the band revealing a lot more). Then I said “Thanks, no probelm! I’ll just take them off.” and her face literally impersonated the screaming emoji. LOL.

I tried to retract what I said by sneaking in “Orrrr I’ll just figure it out!” while smiling innocently, but I think we both knew I had already figured it out. *insert winky emoji*

Later that evening when Matt and I left the dinner he told me how beautiful I looked BUT that he could see my underwear through my skirt! What a turkey! I set him straight to always tell me if I’m having a wardrobe malfunction – and I’ve been teasing him about it all week.

We’re All So Excited & We Just Can’t Hide It! | Funny Things My 3 Year Old Says

I never thought I’d ever share funny things my 3 year old says, but lately Annaliese has been hilarious and I need to share!

Leading up to this week Annaliese has been so excited for her new baby sister, until last night when I was tucking her into bed… she whispered in my ear as I gave her a hug and a kiss “give me a baby brother”.

I couldn’t help but laugh and ask her “what did you say?”. 

She giggled and then with a straight face said again “give me a baby brother”.

Well, sorry little girl! There’s no guarantee that you’ll ever have a brother, it’s going to always be a 50/50 split, but thanks for the (hesitant) laugh.

Arizona Adventures | Spring Maternity Style | Pink Blush Giveaway

 Like I said before on Instagram, it feels like this pregnancy has flown by as I am already 22 weeks pregnant! Right now we are scoping out names like crazy because Matt and I can hardly find one name we both like.

Our (but really it’s MY) name qualification checklist is long but we’ll keep looking at baby name lists until we find a couple names we can agree one. I love names that start with vowels, that are long-ish, and unique but traditional names, plus if it’s biblical that’s a bigger bonus.. The kicker is finding a biblical name that is unique but not bizarre (like Nebuchadnezzar or Tirzah)… but I like also Grace as a possibility for a girl but Matt does not like “word names”. See what I mean? We have a lot more baby research ahead of us!

 But for now let’s head into this next G I V E A W A Y! I’ve partnered with Pink Blush to giveaway a $50 gift certificate! I’ve been wearing all my Pink Blushes dresses this week (here, here, and here) to update my Spring maternity style, and I know you’ll find something you love from there!

Thankfully DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse Kids now has 2 locations in Edmonton and I can let her pick her choice from all my favourite shoe brands: Nike, Striderite, Hunter, Birkenstock, Toms, Ugg, Steve Madden. She’s happy with her choice, and I’m happy with her choice and with the affordable price.

The sun feels so good after a rough first trimeter during the winter. Though it’s technically Spring time here, it feels like Summer to me!

At some point this week Matt and I want to go thrift shopping, and check out a new coffee place every morning with the girls. Other than that we don’t plan on too much shopping, just playing with the girls in the pool and soaking up the Vitamin D.
