Tick Tock

tick tock.

No baby yet....
We are anxiously awaiting.

I went to bed last night at around 10pm hoping to be awaken by water.
No such luck.
Instead I'm awaken by discomfort at 3am.
Happy Monday!!

Friday Five

I have to say it's been so nice blogging again this week.
I think I will have to keep it up.

Love joining the ladies for such a fun link up to wrap up the week!

{ one }
I'm ready to 'Pop'!

We are beyond excited to meet our little lady....
anytime now!!

{ two }
The Great Gatsby
Yes I finally saw it!
The settings and costumes were am-azing!
I wasn't overly impressed at the time
but then talking about it I realized I really loved it.
It took my back to high school Lit class.

I will admit I'm stressing a bit over what to wear for newborn and Christmas photos.

Speaking of the holidays.
I'm so excited that this week I got confirmation of my appointment 
to see Santa at Phipps with Parker Leigh.
Yes, my child is not yet born but I scheduled my appointment in August!
And, no, I am not ashamed.

{ five }
Last but certainly not least.
Looking forward to a fantastic fall wedding weekend!
We have a wedding tomorrow night,
which will undoubtedly be a night to remember.
Followed up by a little pumpkin carving and maybe even a trip to the delivery room!!
Fingers Crossed, I have a funny feeling about Sunday!

Asheville Fall Weekend

I'm doing some back tracking and sharing some photos
of our trip to Asheville last month.

The Mr.'s parents live in Hendersonville, NC
super cute town just about 10 minutes from Asheville.
It's great to visit!

Something you might not know,
the Mr. and I met in Asheville...quick version.

I accepted an internship at the Biltmore after college.
He was working at the Biltmore at the time.
We worked together, 
fell in love, 
adopted Hendrix, 
he proposed, 
and we moved to Atlanta.
Wow we look young!

While we loved the mountains and all of the beauty of Asheville.
It just never felt like home to either of us.
HOWEVER, it is a wonderful place to visit!

We had a great little trip.
We took part in our annual apple picking....

It was a beautiful day!

Had a great lunch at Wicked Weed Brewing.

Super great brewery downtown.

It was a great weekend!  
We can't wait to take Parker Leigh apple picking next fall!

We love Asheville, if you ever need any restaurant suggestions just let me know :)!

Favorite Maternity Clothes

Thought I would share some of my favorite maternity finds.

Yes they have maternity clothes
Great for work attire
And they frequently offer 40% off!

Perfect for inexpensive basics
Also home to my favorite skinny jeans...I prefer the full panel
best part very affordable

Nice work pants for my friends with long legs...they come in longs!
the Supersoft Shirts (tanks, short, and long sleeves) are am-azing!

Most of my purchases here did not hold up well.
But they do have the best leggings...cropped and long.
Secret Fit Belly(r) Jersey Knit Maternity Leggings

They are slowly coming out with more maternity wear.
Maternity Pixie pant
They came out a bit too late for me but next go around
I will be investing (right word cause they are not cheap) in some basics from my favorite!

Too $$ for me but I do love their stuff.

Everything I found was super cute but.....not returnable
And most of the items I purchased didn't fit correctly = waste of $$

My advice go ahead and spend some $$ on some great basics.
Stick with ordering your pre-maternity size!!
I have been lucky enough to wear a few non-maternity items throughout my pregnancy.
I will admit this past couple of weeks I've been wearing the Mr.'s t-shirts to bed.

Happy shopping to all the expecting moms out there!

Parker Leigh Wagner

Here we are only 2 weeks away from meeting our precious little girl!

I'm overwhelmed with anticipation.
I'm not nervous about labor.
(I trust doctors and drugs)
I'm just too excited to catch the first glimpse of our girl.
I can't wait to see her little face.

Every night the Mr. and I sit around 
and say in a couple of weeks/days it won't just be the 3 of us.  
(that is the 2 of us + big brother Hendrix)
If it's possible I think the Mr. might be more excited than I am.

My mama is out of town until Wednesday.
I truly I need a few more days to tidy things up at work.
But come Thursday I think I will be ready!
I have delayed in packing my hospital bag
 in hopes that she keeps herself nice and snug until the end of the week.

We have finally agreed on a name
funny as it was the very first name we came up with 
during the first few weeks.

Parker Leigh Wagner

We can't wait to meet you!
