Happy Fall!




 

     Happy 1st day of fall! I have a feeling it’s going to be the best one yet!! Walker’s fall knit hat & booties are from Little Me, found at TJ Maxx by his Glammy. They inspired his fall photo & my search for fall leaves on amazon. 

500 piece artificial fall leaves $10.99


Would pair adorably with this newborn knit pumpkin set too! ($13.99)

Taco bout Having a Baby!

 


     Walker was a scheduled c-section from the get go (due to my Crohn’s history + added bonus of being breech). Getting him here happy & healthy was all that mattered to me. I’ve never been a dream birth plan type, in fact if I could amazon prime my babies I would.  I will say in a world full of unknowns knowing his exact birthdate for months was quite the luxury for us. 


We arrived at the hospital at 5:30am for pre-op. Went to the OR at 8 & at 8:42am had our baby! I did skin to skin & even breastfed in the OR while being stitched up. Having had previous surgeries & even a spinal before, I felt pretty chill about the whole process, however there was a moment while getting prepped in the OR where I thought “you know what I think I’ll just go home now; not doing this today”. Once Corey came in for go time, I was good to go again & once back to our hospital room I even told him I want more babies.  We couldn’t have asked for a better experience at Sanford Health…Blessed with the best doctors & nurses, we’re more serious than joking when we say we’ll fly back to Thief River Falls to have our next baby!

38 Weeks

 


     Threw this dress on & thought “well heck let’s get one last baby bump pic”.  When I picked this dress out for a Shoedazzle collab last fall, I envisioned wearing it pregnant one day. It’s been one of my go-to’s for feeling comfy with the perfect touch of sparkly glam. Shop sweater dress finds here

Favorite Amazon Fashion Find of the Summer

 


     Corey calls this my 101 Dalmatians dress. Woof! It’s my favorite amazon find of the summer:

▪️Tiered mini ruffle detail ✔️

▪️Smocked top ✔️

▪️Lightweight & breathable fabric ✔️

▪️And my favorite detail, tie shoulder straps✔️✔️

Under $30 & also available in a shorter length. 


▪️Pro tip for tying the shoulder straps: put the dress on first then tie with the bow knot towards the front of your shoulder. Makes for maximum bow cuteness unless there are 22mph wind gusts like in my pic.

5th Wheel Travel Trailer Nursery

 


     Mungo🐒 & I are counting down, 7 weeks til baby. My monkey 1st made his debut in my nursery 34 years ago!! I’ve had so much fun transforming the bunkhouse in our Heartland Bighorn Traveler to a nursery.  It’s been called a man cave, the liquor store & Sam’s club pantry over the past few years…Finally found the most appropriate use for this space! 

All of the items from the nursery are linked here

Vacation Style Vibes



     Put on this outfit & instantly thought “Now this is Stacia!” Reinventing outfits from my closet to work for maternity has been fun but sometimes you need extra embellishments in your life! 


    Scored the shorts right around $20 shipped internationally from the brand, River Island, a lot better than the $65 price tag on Nordstrom’s website. 


River Island Sequined Mix Print Shirt Limited sale sizes available here.

Hilton Head Date Night



 

     Sunset dinner cruise for our last HHI date night before baby. We won our Vagabond Cruise at Coral Sands Resort pool party...the best day of the week! The cruise is 2 bhours with a 4 course dinner. We enjoyed a garden salad, shrimp & grits (my favorite!), chicken Marsala, braised beef, fresh veggies & whipped potatoes. Dessert was blond or loaded with fresh fruit & whipped creams. We left stuffed!! Although it was over cast for sunset, we spotted plenty of dolphins. I personally swear by it...if you’re on a boat you’ll see dolphins every time in HHI! 





     My dress is a comfy amazon find (non-maternity) & under $25! 


Ribbed Sundress $23.69
