Recently it hit me. I realized that baby boy is coming really really soon and it's giving me a little anxiety. Has this happened to anyone else? Don't get me wrong, I'm SO thrilled to add an addition and I already know he is going to be the biggest sweetheart, but there is something bittersweet about letting go what you've known and have gotten used to. Coco is only 19 months, but instinctually she is so motherly. I know she will be an amazing big sister... I'm starting to think that the transition will be a lot easier for her than me. We all worry about the first born and how they are going to handle the addition, but you guys... I think she's going to be just fine. Me on the other hand? I've got lots mind prepping to do.
So, with anticipating the arrival of our baby boy, I've been trying to squeeze in lots and lots of quality time in with Coco. One of our favorite things to do is getting out of the house and going to get dessert or treats. I've never been much of an ice cream person, but something happens when I'm pregnant. I become an ice cream feen. I could eat it daily if I could.
Thankfully, for this mama we have Baskin-Robbins just around the corner from us. Would it be embarrassing if I confessed that I've come to know the night time crew because we go there a little too often?
Well, naturally I was thrilled when Baskin-Robbins approached me to help spread the word about their new Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich. It's completely customizable from top to bottom. You can mix and match cookies, you can get a single scoop of ice cream or double, but the best part in my opinion is the warm gooey cookie wrapping the cold ice cream. There is something I absolutely love about cold and hot together for desserts. It's a magical combination, in my opinion.
You can try this at ANY location now!
Go grab your favorite someone this week and take them out to get some of this delicious Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich and spend a little quality #Sandwiching time!

You guys, I am SO excited to share this post about Munchkin's STEP diaper pail with you today.
Right now we are in the middle of transitioning Coco's nursery into big girl's room and we are taking all the baby stuff into baby boy's unfinished nursery. (I'm almost in tears writing that... )
Most of the bigger important things were splurge items for us because it was important that we could continue to use that item with our other future babies. I did an excessive amount of research on all the things we purchased for Coco, including that lovely little diaper pail you can see in the second photo. That's our old diaper pail. RIP.
There are so many baby gear and goods out there that it can be overwhelming sometimes to choose the right one for your little one and family.
For us, aesthetic and the functionality is super important. But we weren't able to find a diaper pail that had both of those qualities when I was pregnant with Coco. So we went with Munchkin's old Arm and Hammer diaper pail. The #1 order control definitely sold us on it, but you know how it is.... after two years you are bound to find newer and better items. That's when I found Munchkin's new STEP diaper pail.
Oh, you guys.... This is EXACTLY what I was looking for when I was pregnant with Coco!
It looks sleek with its modern and clean stainless steel accents and its minimalistic stylish body.
Not to mention, the odor control on this thing is on point. As soon as I opened it from the box, I could smell the subtle refreshing scent.
I'm just in love. I know we will be able to use this for the next few years until our babies are done using diapers. Every parent needs this. There is nothing like it on the market right now. Get on it mamas!
Right now they are having a sale on it here.
Also, just a little bonus... every diaper pail they sell, Munchkin will plant a tree!

We've been blessed with the opportunity of being able to get pregnant with another baby!
Initially when we had Coco we knew we wanted to try to get pregnant shortly after Coco's 1st birthday, but due to some health issues I have that needed treatment for me to go into remission, we wanted to wait a little longer than our initial plan, but I guess God had different plans, or maybe we weren't careful enough because we struggled getting pregnant with Coco... but much to our surprise we found out that we were pregnant at the beginning of this year.
The first few weeks were brutal since I was experiencing pretty bad symptoms from my sickness combined with morning sickness. Lehi and my mom literally had to take care of me and Coco. I honestly don't know what I would have done with out them. Now that we are expecting baby #2, I have to postpone my treatment. Even though it's physically tough most days, I'm so thankful that I get this chance to carry this baby.
I have no doubt Coco will be an amazing older sister. She is already so motherly and caring to all her little baby toys. It's the cutest thing. I don't know how babies can have these instinct at such a young age, but I'm so excited to see her interact with her little baby sibling.
I will write our pregnancy update once in a while to document for the next few months until the baby is here!
Crop Top Tank [$20 and the quality is amazing] // Silky Patterned Pants [old but similar here] // Brown Heels [similar]// Neon Clutch [similar] // Fedora [on SALE!!]
I lived in this crop top tank when we were in Mexico! I swear it goes with everything. I also feel like it gives the false illusion of my legs being longer than what it actually is. I love that though. I need any help I can get there.
Also, can I quickly talk about how I have white sugar stain on my right boob in the photos.
I just noticed after I uploaded the photos and I am a little too lazy to edit those out. I'm not really photoshop savvy. So I'm sorry that's there. Such an eye sore. But in case you are wondering... I had Mexican donuts and yes, they were delicious. It was worth the stain.
I hope you guys are having a fantastic day!
