This is how I make date nights happen when I dont feel like I am a glowing preggo (which is quite often guys 🙌) - I put on the stretchiest comfiest single piece of clothing I have so I don't have to put together an outfit, i put a LOT of cheek hilight and blush on (a lot) and some dry shampoo (ok.. A lot). Bam 🙌😄 guys I know I post posey instagram photos of my pregnancy but its because I enjoy being preggo so much and embrace it for everything it is even though I dont always feel comfortable- i still wake up with nausea, i feel my hormones hit me like a hurricane time to time and nothing much fits me anymore so i quit with pants for the most part ... But my point is i love it, the hormones and all 💕 offically #24weeks now and this bump is really starting to pop 😱 #ad#shoppinkblush#prettyinpinkblush
Today has felt like one hit after the next, we've officially hit week 29! We also said goodbye to my husband for the next 6 weeks. The kiddos are on spring break which means I had to take all the girls to my appointment at 11.. If you haven't been following since the beginning we were diagnosed with Hypertension around week 15 (high blood pressure) I was delusionally optimistic that we'd have smooth sailing til my husbands return. Today we were told that not only have my protein numbers doubled but the BP medicine isn't lowering my numbers. We're no longer set to induce at week 39 but week 35 😞 the same week my husband is supposed to return. At this point we're going in for weekly NST and measuring scans. The only positive info we recieved today is that he is already head down.. I'm praying and hoping for at least week 37 😭
A little over half way there with this big ol’ bump of mine. The girls & daddy have been feeling kicks & Marlow says “hi baby brodder” to my belly button every morning. This pregnancy has been the hardest one yet but I know it’ll be so worth it. 19 weeks to go 🥰🥰 @shoppinkblush#prettyinpinkblush#shoppinkblush#sponsored

This time last year, I was SOOOOO pregnant and counting down the days until I hit 32 weeks. Once we hit that milestone, the babies would be safer being born rather than remaining inside of me (because the boys were monochorionic, monoamniotic twins). After WEEKS and WEEKS of inpatient monitoring, I was so ready to meet the babies (and to get out of the hospital!). My c-section was scheduled for April 26, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. That date was technically 32 weeks + 1 day, because April 25 is my birthday, and I wanted the babies to have their own special day. 👶🏼👶🏼👶🏼🎂. Looking back at this picture it simultaneously feels like it all happened just yesterday, and like it was a lifetime ago... Do you remember the days leading up to your deliveries?!?!

#21weekspregnant and I’ve had to say goodbye to a lot of my “regular clothing”.
Actually, I had to start wearing maternity clothes much sooner with baby #2 . Note to self 👉🏼 it’s ok! I was told this would happen, so I’m embracing it and focusing on the blessing of helping God create this little miracle. I’m also deciding to have fun with dressing my bump for a longer period of time this go-around 😁
My goals with maternity wear for the second pregnancy has been the same as the first: .
1.) Find clothing that doesn’t scream “maternity!” 2.) Find clothing that can also be worn post-maternity ✔️ 💯❗️
I love this pretty top and it’s lace detailing that was gifted to me from @shoppinkblush . It fits both of my criteria for maternity wear👌🏼I wore it on a date night this week in the amazing spring weather we’ve been having. It’s also going to be perfect for summer time!

Pregnant Mamas out there: what do you look for in maternity wear? #shoppinkblush#prettyinpink#sponsored#ad
We had a great 32 week checkup/report today for our sweet girl!
Grace Anne is officially measuring a week ahead of schedule, which means we might just have a squishy baby girl on our hands! This Momma couldn’t be more excited! She also had a strong heartbeat while I had a great report as well! So tonight we’re going to bed with happy + thankful hearts knowing that our girl is growing and developing as she should be.
The doctor also seemed very confident that she will eventually flip head down (here’s hoping) and he cleared us to head down to Florida for our “babymoon” vacation. So Florida, here we come! 🥰📷(Photos by @tealephotography; hair + makeup by @kaylanscotthairmakeup)

Half way through the work week y’all 👏🏻 ☀️ the weather in Nashville has been awesome, it has me so ready for summer! // I’ve linked my dress + similar sandals for this easy, casual look! Hope you friends are having a great week! 🤗🖤 http://liketk.it/2BobL @liketoknow.it#liketkit
Let’s be real.. pictures with kids are HARD. The good moods & cooperation usually are not around when picture time comes.. no matter how hard you try to time the naps & meals perfectly!! •
This session was no exception! So.. mama had chicken McNuggets on hand to save the day! & THEN this little boy loved every second of pictures... AS LONG AS no one touched his nuggets 🤣 Swipe to see —> He IS a great sharer though! And mama never turns down a nugget! 👌🏼
These pictures will forever be such incredible memories for us, because nothing went as planned.. and I loved every second of it & so did my handsome little boy! 🧒🏼💙
Thank you @desireekeoshianphoto for rolling with the punches & capturing these absolutely perfect photo memories for us! ❤️
B E A C H | My Dad asked where I took this photo while on vacation. And I said, I took it in my backyard aka Woodbine Beach. This is why l LOVE living in the East End of the city. I however AM excited about my real beach vacay to come in a couple of weeks. Aloha! Share all your fav spots in Oahu please!

If you have been following me for a while on Instagram or have been watching my YouTube videos, you know I have been VERY into Kimonos lately! I love them because they are functional now while I’m pregnant, but I can also wear them after I’m done with this pregnancy! @shoppinkblush sent me this beautiful floral print kimono and I’m dying for it! It is so flattering and can be paired with a body con dress, tank top and jeans or a cute frilly top underneath - so versatile! Anyone else loving Kimonos as much as me?! Go check out @shoppinkblush for this kimono and many other beautiful maternity items!
Parenthood changes you, your world changes - everything you knew before gets a new perspective, you have as much to learn about your new life as your baby does. .
How do I function with close to no sleep? How do I shower in 2 minutes? How do I eat my food with one hand, whilst feeding someone else with the other? How messy am I willing to look like when I leave my house? How can I go to the toilet with another human on my lap at the same time? How do I feel about cold coffee? How many days can I wear this shirt covered in spit up? .
Learning all these new things can be extremely exhausting and that will effect your relationship - more than once, because you also have to learn how to be with each other as parents, it will take time and you will argue about all that’s new to the both of you. But you will end up stronger than ever as soon as you start to figure things out, that’s the beautiful part ♥️ did you find it hard to maintain you relationship after you had babies? We sure did to a start, with a colic baby and no sleep ♥️

I’m not sure where my little toddling baby went but he sure doesn’t have this baby look at anymore. Nearing the corner to three years old in 1.5 months. Insert ALL the feelings, I’m sure I’ll blog about it later. // Dress: @shoppinkblush // 📸: @erin_.hassett
This boy right here is about to be outnumbered by us ladies of the house! Our bond is unlike anything I have ever experienced 🧡 I am not sure how someone so little can be so wise, so compassionate, and filled with so much love. It makes my heart burst and eyes swell when I try to figure it out. His hugs are healing, his kisses a good luck charm, and I don’t think any of us girls in this family know how lucky we are to have him as a brother and son. #babyethroughflowers .
This maternity dress is my new FAV! And from @shoppinkblush 🙌🏻 This is my first time being pregnant in the summer and I’m struggling for outfit ideas! So this beauty is saving the day! #ad#shoppinkblush#shoppinkblushmaternity#pinkblush#prettyinpinkblush

“I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” — Matthew 17:20 🌱
When Dusty Landers and I were married we gave our bridal party cuff links and necklaces with mustard seeds in them. Faith in silver linings, belief in the impossible, a still knowing in our hearts is what had and continues to weave peace into the fabric our lives. There have been plenty of big moments of spiritual awakening for us over the years but it’s been the mustard seed, last shred of hope kind of prayers that have deepen our spiritual journeys. 🙏🏼 Many do not know that we tried for several years to conceive this child. For her we have prayed everyday. For God to find us fit to be parents, we prayed. For God to bring peace to our broken hearts when month after month the test was negative, we prayed. ✨ I found out that I was pregnant the morning of our first appointment with a fertility specialist. And then almost immediately there were moments of feeling unworthy and undeserving of just the miracle we’d prayed for. It was a tough, confusing phase but I talked with good friends, shared my heart and my fears...and just as quickly as that strange unworthiness set in, it passed and I was “enough” again. That’s how mustard seed faith works. 👯♀️ Thank you to our dear, dear friend @thearylouneoubonh for capturing this most precious season of our lives. She and her artistry are a gift to our family. It’s been a giant blessing to have her snap some photos of our lives (and those of our family and friends) over the last 10 years. 📸 PS she travels to CA (and all over the US) y’all so follow her on IG and shoot her an email to book your session.
Now excuse me while I go ball my eyes out over these pictures...for the 3rd time today. #pinkblushmaternity#maternityphotography#maternityshoot#mama#shoppinkblush#prettyinpinkblush

To celebrate this amazing news, I obviously had to do a cute little gender reveal shoot. Thankfully I was gifted this beautiful Navy Blue Ruffle Trim Hi-Low Maternity Midi Dress to add to my collection of stylish clothes to rock by @shoppinkblush . I dressed it up with some lace up heel booties and accessorized it with some metallic statement pieces; a belt and dangly earrings. To tie the look together I had to through in my signature pop of color with my favorite red lipstick shade in Poppy from Arbonne. I’m totally feeling myself in this dress! Who knew with the what feels like limited boring maternity styles out there that you can look so trendy and cute? I have so many ideas for where I’ll be wearing this dress!

Regardless this stretchy maxi dress c/o @shoppinkblush is perfect for my growing bump and afterwards for nursing.
I got rid of all my old maternity clothes so I’m starting from scratch and this piece was what I needed!
Casey and I spent the majority of our middle & high school years together. We traveled together, we stayed in hotels together & we played middle infield together. 🥎 She was hands down one of the best (& scrappiest) short stops I’ve known. Want me to keep going?! Oh okay... well, she was also our lead off & was freakishly fast. I’d always hit 2nd behind her, and she’d make me look good all the time because people could not throw her out! 😆Always gotta #advancetherunner (wow). I’m totally reliving the glory days. I don’t remember them all, but almost every memory I have, includes Casey 🥰.
I’ve missed your face & I’m so honored to have captured this special time for you and Ben. You’re as stunning as I remember & then some. This baby girl is gonna be the life of your party & I can’t wait to meet her someday soon! Xoxo
