37-WEEK BUMPDATE + MY HOSPITAL BAG PACKING LIST
BABY How Far Along? 37 weeks! My doctor says that birthing her anytime after this point is great and that we are officially in the clear of having a premature birth. Gender? A SWEET LITTLE GIRL!!!! (if ya haven’t heard already) Name? Emmett June Kaase Nicknames? Emmy, EJ, Junebug, Em, Emmett June Effacement/Dilated? My doc checked my cervix a week and a half ago and I was 50% effaced and about 1 centimeter dilated. How Often Are the Doctor Visits? Every week! He will check my cervix again this week. Size? She’s snug as a bug in my belly and about 6 pounds and 4 ounces according to their predictions. Our doctor…
My Top Registry Items
Good morning! The picture above (captured by none other than Bryan himself) is a BTS shot from our maternity shoot this weekend and I CAN’T FREAKING WAIT to see the actual pictures! If you need a maternity photographer, go check out Aimee Hamilton because she is seriously amazing. Now, let’s talk registry items. I swear that I have been living in a black hole of setting up nursery items, a never-ending pile of laundry and buying/exchanging things that we still needed. Creating a nursery and getting a registry together is both super fun and extremely overwhelming. I had no idea what a travel system was, how many bottles to add…
4-Day Babymoon Itinerary for Nashville!
This past weekend Bryan and I visited Nashville (or as we like to call it – the City of Patagonia and Hipster Hats) for our babymoon. If you’re unsure what a babymoon is, let me rest assured that it is NOT a vacation for us to make a baby… that deed is already done. No, instead, a babymoon is the last “YASSS, WE STILL HAVE FREEDOM & INDEPENDENCE!” before our worlds get flipped upside down with a baby. THURSDAY Early Traveling ain’t easy, and it damn sure ain’t easy if your husband accidentally puts the wrong last name on your tickets because you haven’t updated your last name yet. TSA…
It’s Officially Fall at The Kaases’ House!
HEEEEEY, Y’ALL! Is anybody else super thankful that fall is here?! In Houston it’s never cold, but it did conveniently cool down recently and it is SO WELCOME! I made a trip to my favorite stores for some bargain shopping on fall decor, and I. AM. IN. LOVE! Typically I don’t gravitate to orange, but for whatever reason this year I have been loving the combination of blue and orange sprinkled in with some greenery around the house. I also found a way to fill the mantle more, which is something that needed to be done since my lovely husband kept on using it as his end table (still love…
Memorial Day Haul + Double Dinner Date
Y’all, this weekend has been the most chill Memorial Day weekend, but it was so good. Before I dive into what Bryan and I did all weekend, I want to show off some of my goodies from the memorial day sales that I hit up. Marc Fisher Holy moly, they had some amazing sales! I was seriously so blown away at the awesome prices. I was in serious need of some black wedges, but who can really say no to 20% off sale?! I ended up getting three pairs for under $140. Madewell I didn’t actually buy anything off of their memorial day sale, but they did have some cutie…
