It's funny how pregnancies can be sometimes a surprise, come at a time when least expected but happen at the perfect moment and time. 
At the time I first initially found out I was pregnant one of my dearest friends from Springfield, Missouri found out at the same time, Valerie Lemmon. Little did we know neither of us planned the pregnancy let alone planned it to happen at the same time. What a joy it is to experience this amazingness hundreds of miles apart, as we are able to  go thru the stages of our pregnancy together only a couple weeks apart. So be ready to bombarded with photos of the two of us, and photos of our babies as they become the best of friends and pen pals for life from afar. How at times like these I wish I still lived in Missouri..... Here we are: 
My due date: August 26, 2014 
Val's due date: September 4,2014 
Now next on the list is who is having what?!?

Second trimester.

Wheeeewww!! So glad that first trimester is finally behind us. Much more thankful it doesn't last forever! 
Entering into the second trimester has been much better. My nausea has finally been kicked to the curb and my foodcravings  aren't as severe (minus always wanting candy have I ever told you my love for Easter candy well you can times that by a million cause I've been in heaven) sleep has still been my best friends but getting motivated has been a lot easier. Crossfit has gotten a lot better minus it's hard to wrap by head around the fact that I'm pregnant and have to take it a little easily. But am reminded this on a daily basis. Thankfully I'm not looking fluffy and like I've gained weight I now have a little baby bump.  

Hello second trimester! I'm going to forever be in love with you! No signs of feeling the baby move around in there just yet. But oh boy oh boy! I can't wait. Well I'm kinda nervous but it will be a fun experience feeling this little k in there. I haven't began to buy any maternity clothes quite yet so far everything is just getting a little more fitted. But when the time comes I'll be heading to that section to shop. Hoping I can just buy bigger cause maternity clothes aren't too fashionable. :( I'm not trying to pull off the soccer mom look quite yet.... Possibly ever. A few more weeks and we find out the gender and man are we anxious,excited and just can't wait for that day. Neither of us really have any sort of preference for some reason my heart is pointing to a girl (possibly cause that's the majority of my family) but what joy would it be to have a little boy dressed in bow ties and suspenders everyday! Ahhh I just can't wait to find out set up our nursery and SHOP!!! Just buying diapers at this point isn't really fun anymore. Stay posted on our baby reveal party coming very soon!! 

Happy Sunday my friends!

The first steps to pinup:
✔️Red Lips 
✔️Cat eye makeup 
     (Liquid eye liner works best) 
✔️matte palette 

Hair 101: 
Start by setting your hair with soft waves. Works best with a 1 1/4 inch barrel iron for mid length to long hair. After all waves are placed. Lightly brush out waves with a boar bristle brush. Just to soften the waves a bit. This will prepare your hair for the style you wish to achieve. 
   :Victory curls: 
    Leaving length down in the back or creating  a pin curl look in the back by using bobby pins to hold hair into an updo. 
    :Finger waves: 
    :Pin curls: 
     Gently placing curls is a c curve and pining. Easily achieved on short hair
     :Bandana updo: 
     The easiest of all after curling pull hair up into high pony tail and loosely pin curls add a bandana and your done. 

Pin up attire
I would recommend shopping at second hand stores to find some of these items at great prices or Forever 21
✔️high waisted skirts/shorts 
✔️pencil dress 
✔️figure flattering dresses. 


Not sure you want to strut your stuff as a pinup? No worries. Come as yourself and just enjoy your evening with all the yummy treats, music, door prizes and more. Regardless of your attire this will be a fun event for all!
