Favorite Maternity Dresses

 photo IMG_1727_zpsyueyvdsq.jpg
This dress is most definitely my favorite maternity dress I purchased. It was beautiful and flattering at every stage of pregnancy. I love the soft pink color! It sold out quickly after I purchased it, but was just restocked! It sold out quickly last time so if you're pregnant snatch one up! Did I mention it's under $50 bucks?! For those of you who are wondering about size I ordered a size 4 :)

This dress is my favorite nursing friendly maternity dress I have! It is so incredibly soft and I can tell it is going to be just as cute, flattering and functional after baby comes. I packed it in my hospital bag to come home in :) I watched this dress for months hoping it would go on sale and it never did, but now it's on sale for 35% off! (haha that's always how it goes) You're welcome!

This dress is so fun and comfy! It's like wearing a big over-sized T-shirt. It's also under $50 and finally restocked after being sold out for months!

This dress is the most unique of all the maternity dresses I have. It's super stretchy and soft and one size fits all. I really think It will fit me postpartum. It was sold out in every color but black until just this weekend.

I'm almost done with pregnancy so I can't justify buying any more dresses but a few of my favorites I would buy if I had more pregnancy in from of me are below :)

If I wasn't saving money for baby...

If I wasn't saving all of my money for having a baby in the next few weeks (since when did insurance basically cover nothing???) I would be buying all of these pieces from the Nordstrom Sale! I already have the blush wrap flats and they are probably my favorite shoes in my closet!

Summer so far!

My summer so far has been SO jam packed with wonderfulness! At the beginning of June we went down to New Mexico to visit my family. It was such a special weekend. My little brother went through the LDS temple for the first time and then he gave his farwell talk at church on Sunday.

Charlie went down to New Mexico with us and was glued to my hip the entire time. He's a mommas boy ;)

On the way back to Utah Scott and I stopped in Durango Colorado for the day. We love this place! It is so beautiful!

I took Charlie on a beautiful walk to some breathtaking views while Scott did some work (he's such a hard worker that one!)

Ok this flower filled truck was in front of a antique shop and I had to take a picture because it's so gorgeous.

Then my family came up to Utah to drop my little brother off at the MTC, celebrate my 25th birthday and Fathers day. It was so wonderful being all together for a few days before dropping him off.
It was the best birthday ever! I am just so overjoyed to be pregnant that I didn't need or want anything. It is seriously the best gift ever! Last birthday was right after our first failed IVF and it was really hard. So this year was just amazing for so many reasons!
 photo IMG_2391_zpseftreisi.jpg
Oh goodness it was hard saying bye to this boy for two years!
 photo IMG_2308_zpsgjd1i2tl.jpg
We all had a hard time letting go haha so bittersweet! We're so proud but we're going to miss him so much.

The moment of goodbye! All of us crying haha
