SWEATER DRESS: I am so sad this sweater dress is sold out on target but Navy Sweater Dresses are so flattering and they look great with grey over the knee boots. Here are some that I love and found on Nordstorm. They are all different price points.

OVER THE KNEE BOOTS- I absolutely love OTK’s and they are definitely a favorite of mine. You can wear them with jeans, dress, or a skirt. I have some over the knee boots with and without heels in case I want to be dressy or casual. They make your legs look amazing every time. I suggest getting a taupe and black color so they can go with all of your outfits.
TASSEL EARRINGS- I cannot get enough of tassel earrings and the more the better. They can really dress up an outfit and I love adding them to my outfits for just a little pop of color. I also like to match them with my shoes.
HANDBAGS- My favorite handbags are tory burch because they are great quality but not too expensive. I have black, grey, and a perfect amber brown color. I also love the black for going out, the brown to shove everything in like my laptop, and the grey for everyday wear. I totally recommend having a variety of handbags with different sizes, shapes, and colors. I knew black would go with my dressy oufits so that’s why I have a small black tory burch. I wear brown with my more casual outfits so that is why I have huge brown handbag.
Hats have always been a favorite of mine and here are my favorite ones of 2017. They can be that final touch to any outfit. I also love wearing matching hats with Grayson. 🙂
Thank you so much for following me this year and reading my posts. I hope you have the best new year with the ones you love!!

Comments Off on My Favorite Winter Fashion Purchases of 2017.
Isn’t pregnancy one of the most amazing gifts God has ever given? It is so easy for me to sit and complain about my pain and discomfort. I decided today that pregnancy is so hard to enjoy but you have to look on the brighter side of things. I am terrible at patience and waiting on anything to arrive, especially packages from Nordstrom, so can you only image me sitting her waiting for a baby?
Is the nursery ready? Absolutely not. We are moving next weekend. Am I little crazy? Yes, probably so. But God wouldn’t give us anything we can’t handle and I might have to calm down my OCD tendencies down a little. I am a perfectionist. I want everything to be just right but sometimes you need to take a big deep breath and chill out.
Marriage is hard and kids make things a little harder sometimes. It doesn’t matter how much money we have or don’t have because we have each other. I cannot believe I get to grow this little family and I seriously have the best partner to help me.Some days I wonder how I got lucky enough to find him. This man has patience and watching it through every day life has taught me so much. He is far from perfect but he is definitely the perfect match for me. I remember all the support he gave while I was in labor with Grayson for 20 hours and pushed for 3 of them. My labor experience was a very stressful and traumatic event for me. But he held my hand through the entire thing.
He was napping when I took these pics but we have gotten so close over the past 2 weeks. I have taken time out of life to give him full attention and hang out with him. This morning Chris event commented how he has been attached to my hip. He rubs my belly constantly and tells me to tell Annslee Kate to get out. I think he is going to be the best big brother and I know he will help me with little sister. But he has made it extremely clear that he is not changing her diaper. haha I don’t blame you buddy.
I can’t wait to meet you. I hope I can teach you that beauty on the inside is more important then the outside. I want to braid your hair and go shopping for makeup. I can’t wait to help you through every terrible breakup and teach you how to handle mean girls. I hope you are girly because I will not know how to handle it if you are not. I can’t wait to be your best friend but also be your mother.
The blog will be the first announcement of Annslee-Kate and I have something super fun I have been putting together for her arrival. Thanks for following a long with my little growing family. If you think about us please say a prayer for a smooth and healthy delivery. Labor and delivery is one of the scariest things a mother faces and the more support the better.

Merry Christmas Eve!!
This Christmas the Schwartz family hung tight at their hometown in Paducah, Kentucky. I didn’t want to travel being this close to my due date. I didn’t get to see a lot of my family this year, which I really hate, but I have been having terrible contractions all day and I received doctors orders to not travel. I am not really sure if they are the real thing or not but the baby has definitely dropped causing a ton of pelvic pain. At this point of pregnancy you are so ready and just so miserable. My contractions/pain are always at night time too and I really don’t know why.
So I have been talking to a ton of mommas and here are the top “how I started labor naturally tricks”, just from moms that I know. I just wanted to share them with y’all if you are pregnant or maybe one day you will be pregnant. I am going to list the most popular to least popular that I have heard of!
Note that I am not a medical professional and I am just simply giving you examples of tricks I have tried. I am not influencing you to try any of these.
I hope you have the best Christmas with your family. This will be the last Christmas with just me, Chris, and Grayson. I am glad I get this special time with him but we really can’t wait to meet the new baby.

I love how the box contains natural and healthy products. This is great for a health-conscious momma. If you don’t like a product they will let you return it for store credit! I also like how it is tailored to your due date. This is such a great gift for a pregnant momma. The box is $40 a month but the more months you subscribe the cheaper it is.

More than likely Annslee Kate will have her big reveal on the blog so don’t forget to subscribe! I can’t wait for yall to meet her!

Comments Off on What is in Momma’s Hospital Bag.
A. Too soon to tell.
My heartburn is terrible. I am on a prescription heart burn medication that helps a little and I take TUMs on top of that. Heartburn is not fun. I wonder if she is going to have a lot of hair. Even though they say that is myth. But the nausea has gone away and that’s good! My milk came and that hasn’t been fun. I haven’t been able to fit in any of my bras. 🙁
Some of my clothes still fit if they are stretchy enough but maternity jeans are now a must. The hair tie around the button trick doesn’t work anymore like it used to.
Bending down isn’t fun anymore so I already try to avoid that at all costs. I have a sharp pain on ONE freaking spot on my back. Sometimes I feel like it is really hard to breathe.
So Chris came in for my doctor’s appointment so he could see the first 4D ultrasound of Annslee Kate. She wouldn’t get her arm off her mouth so we could see her whole face. I told Chris to come try and move her because every time he rubs my belly she will move. So he came over and start rubbing my belly and she moved her arm. It was the craziest thing. Me and the ultra sound tech were cracking up. There is already a sweet connection with her and her daddy. I can’t wait to see the two of them together. He is going to love this little girl.
I have been cooking like crazy and organizing the house. I am totally and completely in the nesting stage.
Thanks everyone for reading! I hope you can find some maternity products that helps you and your growing belly!
We are settling into Paducah more and more each day. I love looking up local events on Facebook and finding fun stuff for Grayson to go to. This fun family event at Huyck Farms was not only fun but the venue was beautiful. It had a ton of picture ops if you can’t tell. We bought kettle corn, local honey (this is great for allergies by the way), fresh apples, and of course pumpkins. Fall is such a warm time of year. I love making awesome memories with the family.
My outfit is all maternity and it is from Everly Gray. I love the pants because they are super stretchy and comfortable. My top has a side zipper for breast feeding, which is perfect post baby. It will be great wearing this top in January when Annslee is due because it doesn’t hug around the tummy at all and I can hide my post baby bump.

Below is a video of this hairstyle that I did yesterday! One random girl at the pumpkin patch asked if she could take a picture of my hair because she loved it so much. I post a lot of videos of me getting ready on my Instagram story. Yesterday I did a hair tutorial and last week I did a makeup tutorial. People really seem to like them so just expect to see one on Saturday’s!
Everyone enjoy and if you have ANY questions about anything don’t forget to ASK 🙂
I love helping and answering questions!

We have some great news……
Baby #2 is on the way and should be making an arrival on Jan 7th. I know I have been a little MIA with my blog and social media lately. People have been texting me non-stop asking me if I am okay. I have been very nauseous and very tired with this baby. I feel like this pregnancy has been a lot harder than my last one. I am having a really hard time adjusting to everything. The morning sickness has gotten a little bit better. I am not having any cravings.. just a ton of food aversions. I associate so many foods with being sick. I also feel like this baby is sucking the beauty out of me. I know that sounds so weird but I feel like this baby is JUST different.
We are having a gender reveal party on July 15th to see what the baby is going to be. I did do a chromosome test and that is how I can tell what the gender is at 12 weeks. I did not get the test to see if my baby had down syndrome (Chris and I have both agreed that it would not change anything.) The doctor just told me I could also find out the gender pretty quick and that is why some parents do it.
My first ultra sound was last week and Chris and I were so excited. Little baby Schwartz was wiggling around in my tummy like crazy. We are both hoping for a girl but we will be over the moon if it’s a boy. Even though I see how Chris and his brother wrestle around the house and I hate that. haha
Since I am pregnant and all.. I will be giving out some pregnancy tips on my blog and my goal will be styling pregnant women without buying maternity clothes. It has been really hard for me to look my best with this pregnancy. I am just going to go ahead and admit it. So I will be posting tips on how to do quick makeup/hair styles, heatless waves, and diet ideas.
My first set of tips are for the first trimester of pregnancy and making things easier for momma. Especially when you have a little toddler running around!! lol I love him to death though! He keeps telling me that he wants 2 brothers and 2 sisters. Like really dude? lol
