Wish List Wednesday - Workout Attire (All Under $30)

Happy Wednesday afternoon, friends!!  Sorry I'm getting my post up a little late today, but when I woke up this morning I was itching to get a workout in!  And if you know me at all, that NEVER happens these days!!  As good as I feel after a workout, I don't ever really have the urge or itch to actually do it...I usually have to make myself go.  

So with that being said, I decided I better get it over with before I started my post this morning.  And with my new sudden burst of energy and motivation to workout, I thought I would share with a few workout items that are currently on my wish list. 

I've had my eye on this tank for a while now and I am in the love with the back!  Added bonus, it comes in 15 different colors and is only $15!!! 

These stretch tees have great reviews and you can't beat the $18 price tag for tow tees!  

YES to all the high waist leggings!  These bad boys come in 16 different colors and I love that they come in the 7/8 length, which for me (I am 5'2 btw), hits me right at the ankle and I love that. 

I have this tank in two different colors and I'm thinking I need the black along with the olive green color for fall.  This tank looks and feels exactly like the Lululemon power y tank for a fraction of the price! 

I just ordered these shorts in this color and in the black, and I cannot wait for them to come in.  The reviews on these shorts are so good and I love the thicker waist band.  Also, I just went one size up to the medium for my growing bump. 

I love the look of these shoes along with the fact that they come in so many different colors!  Plus, finding athletic shoes that have amazing reviews for under $30 makes me pretty excited! 

This sports bra is part of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and it's a really good one!!!  I picked it up last year in the burgundy color and it's still one of my favorites.  It's super supportive, but not too tight to where it's uncomfortable. 

Loving the back of this long sleeve tee and I think this would be perfect for fall when it gets cooler outside.  It would also be great for a barre class or for an outdoor run. 

There is nothing I love more than coming home and tossing on my pajama bottoms and a cozy fleece pullover.  Plus, I actually think you could pull this one off with jeans and flats or yoga pants and tennis shoes as well!  Oh yeah, it also comes in six other colors! 

Okay, you guys know how I love my no-show socks, and well, it's time for me to order some new ones.  I swear either my dryer or my washing machine eats mine, but anyway, these have great reviews, the no-slip grip, and they come in an eight pack for $10!!

15 Week Bump Date + Gender Reveal Party Plans

15 Week Bump Date 

Top runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing a small. 

Size of Baby
 : Apple 

Weight Gain : 1 pound 

Gender : We know but are keeping it a secret for our gender reveal party in a few weeks;) 

Maternity Clothes : None yet, but my pants and shorts are getting pretty snug!  I've been living in this maxi, these running shorts, and these tanks

Sleep : I've been sleeping great and I'm ready for bed no later than 8pm every night!  I am ready to get more energy back so I can stay up and at least enjoy some shows or a movie with Todd. 

Missing : Wine and cocktails!! 

Cravings : This week's cravings have still been pretty healthy...salads and fruit, but the strange one that I've been having is my breakfast cravings which is grits with fresh tomatoes.  I used to love this as a kid so I guess it's not too strange really. 

Must Have Items : I just ordered these mini velvet hangers, these precious gowns, this Noodle and Boo Set (that is on major sale), and these cute pajamas one size larger for my growing bump! 

Hubby's Thoughts : Still so excited and so darn sweet!  He's been so amazing when it comes to helping me with everything around the house and he never complains when dinner is whatever I may be craving!! 

Best Part of This Week : Seeing our sweet baby in 2d and 3d, finding out the sex, and golf cart rides to dinner with the family! 

Todd and I are also planning a gender reveal party!!!  I have always wanted to have a gender reveal party and we figured it's probably now or never since this is for sure our last baby!  

I am currently debating between this adorable decoration set for the party or this set

I am loving the pop of gold mixed in with the pink and blue in this one. 

I also love the huge balloon wall that I could create with this set

As far as the food, I think I'm going to do a big dessert bar complete with pink and blue doughnuts, cookies, and cupcakes!  I also plan to have wine, water, and champagne for drinks.  That being said, I am still thinking all of this over, so we shall see!

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!
