I thought this could be a fun weekly post of the outfits I wear throughout the week. Because my week switches between going into the office and working from home. So you get a good mixture of “Business Casual” and Comfortable/at home casual! 

So here we go!

Monday an in the office day, and to be honest I only can wear so many of my clothes these days pregnant but at least that helps that most of everything I’m wearing is non maternity! This outfit is nothing crazy, but was super comfy. These are the spanx faux leather leggings, I’m wearing them in maternity but I also have them in the regular. Then this tunic is from Nordstrom and I have it in MANY colors. I will have to say though the front fabric winkles very easily! Also linked some other similar tops!

Tuesday- Another office day and I actually had a lot of fun with this outfit. Just a skirt from Loft, and then I wore a normal sweater that I did the bra tuck in to show off the bump, before the bump I did it to help see more of the skirt and elongate my body.

Wednesday- Finally a day at home, which I relaxed a lot in my align lululemon leggings, and a comfy pullover. 

Thursday- Back in the office and rocking the same align leggings, some riding boots, and a longer SUPER comfy shirt. This is a maternity shirt, but can also be worn as non maternity. 

Friday- I was at home, but I did get dressed up in leggings, one of my favorite loft sweaters and these puffer jacket that comes in petite, which make the fit SO GOOD.

You Need a Budget

So, I think as a child it was for sure pushed on me the value of a dollar and making sure you save money! I still think that way and Jordan is very “you can’t take it with you”, so he and I make a really nice balance in our life together!

As you know we will be adding another member to our family in March which you need money for! To keep us on track and get to our goals we have set for ourselves I like to use the YNAB app. Which means you need a budget! I personally have been using it for 6 years and LOVE it. 

Step 1: Open a YNAB account! I used to use the manual program that was a one time fee and you downloaded it to the computer, but I now use their online version that will pull your transactions directly from your bank account! Use this link and get 1 month free!

Yellowstone Packing Guide

My family and I just recently took a vacation to Yellowstone National park, and we had the best time. I loved spending so much time outdoors, but also going on a vacation that was very different from any one we had ever been on before. I would say our trip was very mixed in the types of things we did, and I will share in a separate post our itinerary, where we stayed, and places we ate! But, for this post let’s talk about packing. 

I might be the only person (being from Houston) that didn’t know it can actually be pretty cold in Wyoming in June. This changed up our packing quite a bit, but spoiler alert, we arrived and they were having their hottest June ever. Granted it only got up to maybe 82 but still not what we expected after learning it’s usually cold. The week before we were there they had a high of 64 HA! So The packing list below is pretty broad to make sure you get your cold mornings and evenings covered, but also stay comfortable during the day. This list also includes items as well, not just attire that made our trip all the better!
