As of Late | May Edition | Ann-Marie Loves

Dying over the peonies that I picked up from Trader Joe’s. They bring me so much happiness and only costed $6.99!

Experiencing frequent periods of high energy where I can easily fill a part of my day with activity after activity after activity and then ultimately crashing hard. Hard to the point where I need to be by myself in a quiet place for a good chunk of time so I can recharge. Maybe one day I’ll remember that I’m pregnant and cut myself a break, but then again, maybe not! ;)

Wearing my new denim jacket and straw fedora every single day and not feeling an ounce of guilt about it! It’s especially fun when Briar wears her matching denim jacket at the same time! #mothergirl

Getting so excited about the arrival of my Get To Work Book. I’m stalking the mailbox everyday!

Coming up on the six month mark until I officially leave my twenties behind! I’m pretty excited to start a new decade.

Trying to decide on a double stroller and can’t seem to make up my mind. After using the amazing Nuna Tavo with Briar for the past year, I now see the value in mid to higher end strollers (like an Uppababy or a double BOB). Any recommendations?

Feeling like such a hardcore MOM these days as I shuttle Briar between swim lessons, Gymboree classes, and playdates.

Counting down the minutes until we find out whether Briar will have a sister or a brother. Remember when I said I was much more patient this time around? Ha! I totally lied. I am DYING to know.

Reminding myself how much more I enjoy myself when I listen to music while I work. I usually try to tackle my to-do list with a podcast or silence as the soundtrack, but music really makes everything feel easier and lighter. Sade is my go-to for any type of project or occasion.

Speaking of music, I’m listening to the different playlists I put together for our wedding as I type out this post and am loving the trip down memory lane :)

Making small tweaks to my blog here and there. I love an updated look!

    I can really recommend the Stokke Crusi w/sibling seat in lieu of a “regular” double stroller!

    Trader Joe’s is my favorite go-to for fresh flowers! They are so inexpensive, and they seem to last a while, too. I bought some daffodils from there a few weeks back, and they were so delightful!

    Wishing you the best as your pregnancy continues!
