It was the seventh of September.

Well, another birthday has come and gone. I don't think I will ever not love my birthday. I know it will change when I have children, but I feel like when it's my birthday, everyone in the family gets to have fun too! :)

We passed our one year anniversary of living in our house in Nashville. I can't believe all that has happened this year. I had no idea at this time last year that now I would be in the home stretch of pregnancy. I know I have already said it way too many times, but I am just so grateful to even have the privilege to be pregnant. Really. Truly. And I don't even think it has sunk in yet that we actually get to have a baby at the end. I mean, just, wow.

So we did our 3d ultrasound and it was pretty great although for some reason I just thought it would be more clear. She was not in a good position for face shots so I did some crazy dance moves in the bathroom and the tech gave me a Hi-C fruit punch to drink. I could only stomach a few sips of it. Sick! Anyway, nothing worked but she is a Scorpio so we should probably get used to her doing things her own way! :)

I just had such a special birthday. I was able to spend it with my whole family, see Goldie, have my PSL, and eat cheesecake so obviously it ranks up there with the best.

Here we are on a morning nature walk. We knew we'd be gone a lot of the day, so we treated Birdie to a fun walk and a peanut butter dog treat from the local bakery. :)

Dress: Asos
Shoes: Rachel Comey
Bag: Sway Chic
Bracelets: Ettika

Well, I'm getting bigger every day but I still feel like "me" if that makes any sense. I will admit that I have the desire to wear high waist trousers this fall and will definitely not be able to do so! Haha. Anyway, just trying to fully enjoy this miracle that's happening.

Have a great Monday. We're in Atlanta today getting Goldie some Ikea goodies.

XO, Coury

  1. You look so cute with your preggo belly! And I love this citrus-y outfit!


  2. What a gorgeous outfit AND scenery! Love how perfectly the colors complement each other!

    And Birdie is as adorable as ever. :)

    Can't wait to see how beautiful your little girl will be - and all of the amazing outfits I'm sure you have picked out for her already!


  3. so glad you had a wonderful birthday! you deserve it. this dress and location are beyond beautiful! these really made me happy :)


  4. You are just so adorable and with every post I read I get more and more excited for the arrival of your little one!

  5. These are beautiful shots! The dress fits in so perfectly with the scenery.
    I'm sure your birthday will be a little more hectic with a little one around, but be sure to take the time to appreciate it! There's always a babysitter...

  6. Happy post-Birthday! Sounds like a fantastic weekend. Hope your week is as sweet as you are.

  7. I think birthdays should definitely be special, and you are special. I got 3D photos of each of my boys, but the first one was so hefty and I was too far along that it looked bad (34 weeks in). They told me to get it done between 25-32 weeks I think, which I am sure you are in that bracket. I loved seeing what my second born son looked like before seeing him out of the womb! He still looks the way he did then. hehe. Eh, Scorpio or no Scorpio, that stuff really doesn't matter. I am nothing like the Scorpios that I am supposed to be like. When are you due to have Goldie again? My bday is Nov. 3, but I don't know if you are due later. Anyway, These photos are really cute and I love seeing the family pregnancy shots.

  8. What a fun little walk! I love your dress; you look fabulous in that color! And happy belated birthday! Scorpios are stubborn, but so loyal and lovable. I love being a Scorpio. :) <3
