Nordstrom Anniversary Sale...What I've Purchased So Far

Good morning friends and happy FRIDAY!!! 

Today the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially open to everyone!! There really are so many amazing and beautiful pieces for fall, but since I am pregnant I didn't really order too many clothes. And honestly I really didn't buy too many other items either, I decided this year I really didn't need too much, so I just stuck with some basics that were great deals!

13 Week Bump Date

13 Week Bump Date 

Dress (wearing size small)  // Necklace // Hair Scarf // Rock Stud Sandals

Size of Baby : Lemon 

Weight Gain : 1 pound 

Gender : Not sure, but during our ultrasound this week she said she thought it may be a girl, then she changed her mind last minute when the baby flipped over!!  We are DYING to find out, and will hopefully be able to next week! 

Maternity Clothes : Not quite yet...but I have been living non-stop in this maxi dress, these leggings, and these built-in bra tanks.  All are perfect, and SO comfortable pregnant or not pregnant! 

Sleep : OMG, I am so tired and I've been sleeping SO much!  I was asleep by 7:30 the last couple of nights and didn't wake up until 6am the next morning. 

Missing : I cannot lie, I am missing margaritas by the pool and frose on the beach :) 

Cravings : Fruit, salads, and other random healthy foods that I NEVER want to eat not pregnant...ha! 

Must Have Items : I feel like I am seriously starting all over with this baby, and I have no real idea what all the coolest and best must-have baby items are these days.  Either way, I am doing my research now and will hopefully have some suggestions next week ;)  I will say, the must-have items for mama this week have been this body butter for stretch marks, this facial oil, and these comfy pajamas!! 

Hubby's Thoughts : Oh Todd is so excited, ever since we found out I was pregnant he has pretty much been on cloud nine.  And I have to brag for a minute and say he's been so sweet with letting me rest, doing all of the housework, and bringing me and the kiddos lunch almost daily.  I truly feel so blessed and so lucky to have him. 

Best Part of This Week : Getting to see the baby again via ultrasound and having Carson and Taylor with us!  We thought we were just going in for a regular visit and to hear the babies heartbeat, but because I have so much scar tissue from my prior c-sections we couldn't hear it very well so they did an ultrasound instead.  It was so neat for the kids to get to see the baby, and man was the baby moving like crazy.  I may or may not have gotten a little emotional watching our new baby move while also seeing Carson and Taylor get so excited!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Top 10 Women Picks

Good morning friends and happy happy FRIDAY!! 

Okay, by now I'm sure everybody and their mama knows that today is the start of The Nordstrom Anniversary Early Access Sale!!  Unlike I've done in the past where I've joined in on all the overkill, I decided to dial it way down this year and showcase my absolute favorite picks.  These are items that are not only great deals, but they're also practical, great quality, and ones you will all get a TON of use out of. 

At some point this weekend when I have more time to really dig through the rest of the sale, I will also share my favorite picks for men, kids, and babies of course ;) 

This is by far one of my most beloved items from the sale.  Embarrassingly, I own five different Barefoot Dreams cardigans, and this one, along with this one (which is also on sale) are my favorites! 

These pajamas are hands down the BEST in quality and the most comfortable pair you will ever own! This is another product that I have multiples of, and FYI, they do run large so make sure you size down one size. 

I am pretty sure I will be living in this pullover during fall and winter. 

I swear by these leggings...they suck you in in all the right places.  They have the perfect high waist and they are the perfect length. 

I always try to grab a pair of Nike running shoes during the sale and these are by far my favorites this year! 

This is a GREAT time to grab your favorite Patagonia or The North Face jacket.  This year's selection is great for the entire family.  I am loving this neutral color that can be worn with leggings or even dressed up a little with booties and jeans. 

Under $100 and the perfect color, style, and heel height!! 

These jeans are by FAR my favorite brand of jeans.  I actually bought my first pair two years ago at the Nordstrom sale, and since then I have been hooked! 

I am SO excited about this sweater for fall and winter and I am loving all of the colors they have it in, but this pink is definitely my FAVORITE!! 

Best dress ever, and the price cannot be beat!!  I have this dress in black and white, and have received more compliments on this dress than any other dress I own.  For sizing reference, it runs a little small through the waist and bust, and I have it in the size small.

Chickpea Feta Orzo Pasta Salad + Early Prime Deals Of the Day

Happy Tuesday afternoon, friends!  Sorry for the late post today, I've been running around with the kids most of the morning / afternoon and I'm just now getting a chance to sit down at my computer for a second! 

I actually made this orzo pasta salad last night for dinner and it was absolutely delicious.  I've had such a strong craving for salads, cold pasta salads, and fruits this pregnancy so I was really excited about making this one.  And best part is, it's ever better the next day after the dressing has time to sit and really soak in the orzo and vegetables. 

And next, here is day 6 of the early Amazon Prime deals that are going on today only!  I am really loving all these early savings that they are doing this year before the sale! 

** And last, but not least, today you can also save 30% off all Amazon household brands.  We swear by these paper towels and this toilet paper.  They look and feel just like Bounty and Cottonelle for a fraction of the cost!
