10 Things about Lindsey from Love to the Moon and Back Again

Hi there, my name is Lindsey, 
and I blog over at Love to the Moon & Back again
and I am honored to be a part of Libby's feature here on her blog. I am a former labor and delivery nurse turned SAHM to two toddler girls: one who just turned 3 (Julianna) and the other who just turned 17 months (Kelsey). 
When I'm not chasing these two around, you can catch up with me on my blog - 
my little peace of sanity! I'm happily married to my Prince Charming for four years now and we are College Sweethearts...
so that is my little bio...now onto the fun questions!

1. Favorite snack food:
I'd have to say cookies- I love to bake and I am a sucker for all sweet things


2. Favorite place you've ever visited: 
My favorite place to visit is definitely Disney World, and it is even better when you see it through the eyes of your own children (we did this in May!)

3. Favorite movie: 
My favorite movie right now is Couples Retreat...
probably because I am in desperate need of a vacation and Vince Vaughn always makes me laugh!

4. Favorite childhood memory: 
My favorite childhood memory was spending my holiday breaks from school at my grandparents' house because my grandmother always let me stay up late and eat ice cream with my grandfather


5. Favorite candle scent: 
I don't honestly know if I have a favorite candle scent but I do like anything with a crisp, 
clean scent to it.


6. Favorite way to travel: 
Definitely by airplane because I get very car sick unfortunately.


7. Favorite Starbucks drink: 
Can I pick one per season? haha! 
I love me a peppermint mocha or peppermint hot chocolate around the holidays, but I am usually guilty of my skinny caramel macchiato purchases more routinely.


8. All time favorite meal: 
I love a great filet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes and some type of veg on the side!


9. If you could be on a reality show which one would you choose?:
  This is a tough one, I'd have to go with American Idol because I do love to sing 
(even though I'm not very good! lol)


10. A fun fact about you: 
A fun fact about me is that I am dying to start up my own business - 
after trading in my nursing scrubs to become a SAHM - 
I have really decided that I want to either craft my way into a business or photograph my way into one - 
I just have to figure out which one is better for me!



Thank you so much Libby for featuring me today! I am so grateful to have become friends with Libby through our blogs- she is such a lovely lady and I love reading along with her!

My pregnancy must haves

I thought I would do a little post on my pregnancy must haves this 2nd time around.

Photobucket


1. Pregnancy & Newborn magazine: This is a great resource for when you are pregnant 
& right after baby is born! 
It answers all the questions that every pregnant/new mom need answering. 
Plus I love that in every issue they have great fashion for those pregnant mommas!
2. Izze Soda: this stuff tastes amazing and it has those much needed bubbles for when you have those upset tummy times. 
{that we all know we have occasionally!}
3. Nursing sports bras: These bras are amazingly comfortable 
& they're great for sleeping in when you're pregnant and after baby is born since they are nursing bras.
4. Blanqi belly support: we all know we need extra support for that growing belly of ours during pregnancy and I found the most amazing support there is! 
Plus look at the pretty color it comes in. 
{they also have nude, black, white & a fun tangerine color}
5. 5 Gum - Cobalt: This gum lasts really long and I am almost always chewing some because the peppermint helps with my upset tummy.
6. Tums - Berry: I have major heartburn especially at night so I have a huge pack of those sitting on my nightstand. 
They are a lifesaver in the middle of the night!
7. Ocumarian Truffles: Chocolate is a must have during pregnancy for me and these are amazing chocolates!
8. Bump it Up: This fashion statement book helps pregnant women take ordinary clothes and make them fabulous! 
It's such a great resource for the moms who still want to look stylish while pregnant. 
9. Sprout pregnancy app: This app is great to help you know what is happening every week during your pregnancy. 
10. Water Bobble: We all know water is a must during pregnancy & having a big water bottle next to you at all times is the best way to get your intake of water for the day. 
And since this one has a built in filter it's great for on the go so you can fill it up anywhere and it still tastes amazing.

Little Pink Lady or Little Boy Blue?!

Tomorrow is the big day to find out if it's going to be a
little PINK lady or a little boy BLUE 
we are adding to our family.
And I am so excited!! 

Photobucket

I have had a feeling since I found out I was pregnant that we were going to be adding another
little man to the family
& I'd be over the moon if it was, I've always wanted to have lots of boys.

So these are my families predictions of what they think this little bundle is going to be:

James says boy.
Zane has been saying girl.
My brother, Tommy, says girl.
My half-brother, Devon, says boy.
My dad says boy.
My mom says boy.
My grandma says she has a feeling it's a girl.
My biological mom, Wendy, says girl.
My mother-in-law, Betsy, says boy.
My sister-in-law, Melissa, says boy.
My sister-in-law, Kelly, says girl.


So we have 5 girl guesses & 7 boy guesses.

Photobucket

Get your guesses in now before I make the big announcement here tomorrow!


Libby Signature


P.S. {I don't want anyone to think that I wouldn't be thrilled with a girl!
I just love boys!}

Happy Father's Day!

I am so glad that you are going to get the opportunity to meet her on my blog.
She truly is an amazing woman!

Photobucket


1. Favorite snack food:
My favorite snack food is chips and salsa.
I seriously cannot get enough of them to eat.
I've even been known to eat it at breakfast.

2. Favorite place you've ever visited:
This is a toughie.
May favorite place that I have ever visited would have to be Bora Bora.
It was absolutely gorgeous and I will never forget how clear the water was and all the amazing things we got to do there, 
like swim with stingrays and jet ski around the entire island.
I also love vacationing in Maui.
We have made so many incredible memories there with our family.

3. Favorite movie:
Hands down favorite movie is Dirty Dancing!
I haven't been feeling well this week and have watched it 3 times in 5 days!!
Doesn't help that I have it on my iPhone so I can watch it anywhere.

4. Favorite childhood memory:
Probably playing games around the kitchen table with my family 
and laughing until our sides ached.
I lost my mom to Cancer when I was 16 
and my dad passed away when I was 23
and I would give anything to have those simple times of love and laughter back.

5. Favorite candle scent:
I love Vanilla scented candles.
Light me some of those and toss me in a bubble bath with a glass of wine 
and I'm good to go. ;) 

6. Favorite way to travel:
Depends on where I am going and who I am with.
I love a good road trip with my hubbs...
without the kid, though.
When traveling with my little man, 
I'll take whatever the fastest possible method is!
Teleporting really needs to exist lol!

7. Favorite Starbucks drink :
It's a tie between a Pumpkin Spice Latte and a Gingerbread Latte...
love them both.

8. All time favorite meal:
This is hard because I love to eat!
I love eggplant parmesan...
oh and sushi...
and did I mention chocolate??
I love me some chocolate. :) 

9. If you could be on a reality show which one would you choose?:
Without a doubt Survivor!!
Have watched it every season since the first episode
and love everything about it.

10. A fun fact about you:
Hmmmmm...
this is totally random but it's the only thing that is coming to mind right now.
You know the bird from Little Mermaid?
Scuttle I think his name is?
Yea, well I can totally imitate his singing.
I guess you really have to hear it to understand it, 
but I must say it is pretty epic...
at least that's what my friends all tell me haha. ;)

Mint

I am loving the mint trend going on right now. 
I just bought a mint maternity tank from Gap & 
I have yet to wear it since we've not had nice enough weather but as soon as the nice weather hits the PNW you can bet it is going to be one of the first things I wear!! 



I really want these adorable mint maternity shorts from Gap
I love them & they are on sale right now so Friday you can bet I will be talking the husband into letting me buy them!! 

Photobucket

I am also wanting to get this mint Essie polish for my fingers this summer from Target

Photobucket

I am dying over this adorable mint & floral headband that miss Gussy has in her shop right now.
I think it is just way too cute to pass up!

Photobucket

I really want both of these mint flips from Gap & sandals from Old Navy also.

Photobucket Photobucket

I am also loving the mint trend in jewelry and I really LOVE this bracelet from H&M.

Photobucket

So I really need to go out and get myself some mint and add it into my wardrobe for this
{hopefully coming soon} summer!

On my mind

So ever since I found out that I was pregnant I have had this on my mind...

BABY SHOWERS 

These are some ideas I really love, I also love the idea of having a "little man" party for a boy with bow ties & mustaches everywhere. 

Photobucket
Baseball shower = boy
Photobucket
Bunny shower = girl
Photobucket
Circus shower = boy
Photobucket
Giraffe shower = girl
I am absolutely terrified that my sweet little baby won't get a baby shower, since he or she is #2 I just have a this feeling that no one is going to worry about having a baby shower for him/her! It is very frustrating because I am not going to just straight up ask people are you going to throw ME a shower!! That is just tacky & rude... but I really am worried that no is going to think about it & that would break my heart. I also just really don't have many friends anymore. I have slowly been meeting more and more mom friends but I am not close enough to any of them yet to have them throw me a shower and all my good friends have kind of disappeared since I had Zane and even more so since I announced this pregnancy. I am not upset about it because we are totally in different places in our lives and I completely understand, we just don't have the same schedules and it is SOO hard for me to get out. I have to make plans way in advance and sometimes I have to cancel them because of having a toddler. I love all my friends dearly & it does hurt not to see them because I wish we were still as close as we used to be but I know it's not realistic! But back to the shower issue.

What this post is mainly about is asking for help... what should I do? Just not worry about it either way and be ok with the fact that this little love bug might not get a shower or do I say something? I am just really confused and I really need some help!

Update via instagram

I thought I'd do a little post of instagram pics to catch you up on what we've been up to lately! 
I know I haven't posted an actual post in awhile so I thought I'd share some of the goings on in our house.

First of all we went on vacation in April to Palm Springs with my parents {they took us} and while we were there we took Zane to Disneyland for a day & to say that he had the best day ever is a complete understatement! 
I have never seen him smile so much in his life... 
I don't think he ever stopped smiling that whole day. The pool at our resort had a little slide for the kiddies and Zane loved it... 
we spent most of our time going up and down with him on it. 
We also ate lots and lots of good food!

 My baby belly has been steadily growing and growing... 
This is about week 10 to 17.

And my boy also turned 2 a few weeks ago, we went to breakfast and then we had a party for him the day before his birthday, 
with a couple of his little friends and then we went out on his actual birthday as a family and had dinner then we got him birthday cupcake 
{because what birthday is complete without a cupcake?!}
