Neon Pink Maternity outfit of today

Outfit of today. This is not from any maternity store but from a little store by my house. The dress was only $8 and when I grabbed it I didn't think I liked it but wanted to try the style. I love this dress now. I wish I had a bunch so I can wear one everyday and sleep in it. It is so comfortable. I'm not a lover of pink especially neon pink but this dress just worked when I put it on.

New Shoe Insoles

I have these really old insoles from Aldo and I love them but they are a little expensive so I wanted to make new ones. I found this awesome tutorial for making new soles for my shoes. Here are the new insoles for my Toms. I plan on making some for other shoes and for my son. Enjoy!

Crochet Converse Baby Booties

These shoes match one of the head bands I made. I love these booties and they were so easy to make and so much fun.

Crochet Baby Headbands

A friend needed some headbands for her baby and she couldn't find the color she wanted. So I decided to crochet some for her.

Cup Cozy

I drink coffee every morning and some kind of tea at night. I have these brown cups that my god mother gave me they are a perfect size and are a neutral color so they match with everything, only problem is they don't hold the heat in very well so I needed something to keep my hands from burning when I drink my coffee and tea. I came across this pattern on Ravelry and decided to make one for my cup. I plan on making more, I was thinking I can do different colors for the different holidays like pink for Valentine's, green for St. Patricks Day, you get the idea. Enjoy!!!

25 weeks pregnant!

Yaay, I am 25 weeks pregnant, actually going on 26, I'm just a little late posting this. I always wanted to track my pregnancy journey and I thought a blog would be great. 

Sorry for the horrible pictures, I am trying to figure out how to download pictures from my digital camera. I am using my cell phone camera at the moment. 

Maternity outfit of the day!

So I bought some new clothes yesterday. I don't want to say they are "maternity" clothes because most of them aren't really maternity. I just bought a larger size than I was.

I bought this skirt from Old Navy, it is a maternity shirt with shirring in the waist. It's super cute and incredibly comfortable, I think I want more colors. The shirt is a plus size 1XL in a navy blue color. It is longer than most shirts and wider, so it fits me perfect, and it was only $4.

The pictures aren't great because they were taken in a dark room with my cell phone. 

Sweetheart Ripple Afghan for Baby Natalia

Ever since I saw this pattern a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to make it!! I tried a couple times to get started but I just didn't have the desire to make something so big for myself, I need instant gratification so I usually work on small projects like booties, beanies, scarves, and accessories.

A little over 3 years ago, I found out I was pregnant and I was super excited because I got to make all these cute things for MY baby instead of everyone elses. On top of that, I get to do the cute Sweetheart Ripple afghan. Well I found out I was having a boy, so I ended up doing this blanket, which is something totally different and boyish. My hubby thought the Sweetheart one was too girlly.

So 6 months ago we found out I was pregnant again, and this time for sure I knew I was having a girl. From the beginning I knew, don't ask how but I just knew. So I started working on the Sweetheart Ripple. Here is my progress so far.

I am really hoping to finish this by May 27 because that is when my little Natalia Rose is due. 
Thanks for looking.
