Due Date Maternity Shirt | Culpeper General

Share Button
Cutest. Maternity Shirt. Ever.

 

Yes, that’s a stamp on my growing belly. And if it’s not obvious from the picture, I’m due the 15th of February 2013.

 

Precious, right?!

 

 

¡Niña! | It’s a girl!

 

Shannon Carter of Culpeper General, a friend of a colleague of mine and owner of this Etsy shop kindly sent me this t-shirt and it’s been a hit anytime I wear it.

 

Her online shop has Due Date T-Shirts like mine (which come in four different colors), Monthly Onesies, First Month Onesies and Birth Announcement Onesies for the babes.

 

How adorable are these?!

 

First Year Monthly Onesies | Variety of colors

 

Birth Announcement Onesie

 

Numbered Birthday Shirt | Boy Monthly Onesie | Girl Monthly Onesie with Dots
These all make for super original baby shower gifts and I especially am digging the monthly onesies to keep the family updated the first year. They obviously come in a set of 12!
If this mega cute baby range looks familiar, you may have seen Shannon on The Martha Stewart Show last year and Culpeper General also made Babble.com’s Top 50 Etsy Baby Stores.

As for me, I’m definitely in the final countdown – it’s T minus 6 weeks (or sooner) and frankly, I’m getting anxious. I can’t wait to meet my daughter and see Little M with his baby sister.

 
 

Congratulations to all you pregnant mamas and best wishes for a happy and healthy 9 months…and beyond!

Blo Blow Dry Bar Offers Sleek and Sexy Gwyneth Paltrow Style Hair

Received hair services free of charge. Images and opinions my own. Last week I walked into Blo — North America’s first blow dry bar at their Dupont Circle location in Washington, D.C. with dry, frizzy, over hair sprayed and unwashed hair. I had been invited to experience the WASH, BLOW, GO concept (blow out and style) to celebrate the opening of their latest blow dry bar in Gaithersburg, Maryland and I wanted it to be worth my while. What is Blo Blow {Read More}

Packing Light: Same Outfit, Three Days

Share Button

Talk about REAL mama style. Yep. Same outfit, three days (well, not SAME outfit, I did have one other shirt.) Last week I took a last minute trip to New Jersey without my husband or the kids to visit my sister-in-law and my 3 month old niece. My husband was away on a business trip and my mother didn’t have any major plans so I was able to get away and leave the kids with her. I really didn’t want to drive {Read More}

Doing the Trying-To-Fit-Into-Pre-Baby-Jeans Dance (VIDEO)

Share Button

We’ve all done it. Trying to get into those jeans — pulling them up as far as they go, up over the hips and above the belly button making sure nothing spills out. Sucking in air and then trying to button and zip them. Or telling yourself  “let me sit down and stretch them out a bit” and then doing the trying-as-hard-as-you-can-to-get-into-these-f-ing-jeans dance only to give up and realize, they JUST DON’T FIT. With Fitness on the Run I’ve been {Read More}

Dreaming of a Family Friendly Italian Holiday

Share Button

*Sponsored content I’m not going to lie, this family hasn’t had a proper vacation in many, many years. We’ve had small trips here and there, but I’m still waiting for our south of France or Italian holiday getaway just as my husband promised years ago when we still lived in the UK. During our trip to London this April,  Villa Pia, a 15th century Italian country manor house, once the summer residence for a Florentine family (yep, just what it says) offered {Read More}

A Fashionable Playskool Playdate with Stylish D.C. Mamas

Share Button

It’s #RealMomStyle Monday here and today is certainly jam packed with mamas! Last week I attended the Hasbro Playskool Playdate here in Washington, D.C. with other area moms of pre-school aged kids. Hasbro was introducing new Sesame Street and Playskool toys for the season with a super hero theme and M went straight to the robots and Mr. Potato head. I was actually super excited about this event because we don’t get many big brand events here in the nation’s capital {Read More}

What to Wear to a Baseball Game (VIDEO)

Last week I took my husband to a Washington Nationals game. I repeat, I took him. To a BASEBALL game. I don’t do baseball. It’s boring, slow and lasts FOREVER. But I wanted to do something he likes and enjoys and so…baseball it was. It was bloody hot that day, 95 degrees or so and super humid. I was a puddle of sweat. Knowing all of this and that we’d be seated for a very long time I had carefully {Read More}
