3rd Trimester Style Challenge; Staying Fine with Only 9.

Hey guys,

It’s literally been forever since I posted a blog. A year ago this past September to be exact. I think a combination of lack of creativity and time are the culprits, but I never stopped thinking about this blog. I’m almost finished reading a book called the The Artisan Soul, by Erwin McManus and it’s sufficiently set my creative soul on fire! So much so that I had to return to one of my loves, this blog, and talk about one of my favorite topics, fashion.

If you follow my instagram posts, you should be aware that I’m pregnant with baby boy number three (pray for your girl 😂)!

Honestly I love having boys. Heck, I don’t know any different. So as a veteran, I’m not freaking out… well that much!

One of the things I’ve done differently this time around, since it’s my last pregnancy, was enlist the help of a personal trainer. I really wanted to continue to grow in my fitness journey and didn’t want to slow down momentum just because I was pregnant. If Serena Williams can win a grand slam six months pregnant, I can definitely have the fittest pregnancy of my life.

Thank you Jesus that I’m connected with an amazing trainer who has helped me so much. I’m eating clean and training with her twice a week, and I’ve never felt better. At 30 weeks, I have lost a total of 19 inches all over my body while growing baby. I have not experienced pregnancy edema (yet), most of my clothes still fit, and I feel really good! It’s been a great decision.

Although I feel really good, I’m at the stage where I barely want to put on clothes 😂. However, as a working mom I don’t have that luxury. I’ve got a little less than 10 weeks left, so I’ve challenged myself to “stay fine down to the line.” 😂😂😂😂 That’s something my husband would say or this one, “stay fine even with 9… weeks to go”.  I’m also taking the minimalist approach to the challenge. Unless you have an endless supply of maternity clothes, most mommas-to-be are limited to the number of items they fit comfortably in the last trimester. So I’ve styled 25 outfits with 9 items of clothing + 1 scarf.

How was your weekend guys? Our weekend was super restful. The last couple of days Kenny and I have been getting so much sleep, and we don’t even know what to do with ourselves. We’ve been sleep deprived for almost three years, and this is a welcomed change. However, all of this sleep is so weird. I feel like we’re getting too much sleep lol.

We also got to spend some time with friends and family this weekend, and our hearts are so full! It had been a few months since we’ve been able to hang with people, so it was so great to spend time with people we love.

Speaking of love, I love this dress so much! I had planned to wear this dress to a wedding coming up this weekend, but I can’t because it’s an all-black attire wedding. Never the less, this dress is lovely for any of your events coming up, and it’s very comfortable.

Anyways, I had planned to wear this dress to a wedding coming up this weekend. This dress is great for any of your events coming up and it’s very movable.
