Congratulations! When is your due date, and how have you been prepping?
"Thank you so much! I will be 6 months pregnant next Monday, and we are having a baby boy. Truth be told, I'm kind of a procrastinator, but I ultimately get everything done...and in time! We are doing construction on the baby's room next week, and I still have tons to do. One is to register, which I plan to do at Juvenile Shop
. It’s a one-stop shop for all of the staples. We plan on spicing up the room with vintage Disney pieces – both Justin and I have a slight obsession with Disney. He proposed to me on the Jungle Cruise, so we intend to include some fun, inspirational things in there as well. There is a guy at the Rose Bowl flea market who sells some original Disney artwork, and we love adding to our collection.
I also downloaded the app for Baby Center
on my iPhone, and look at it seriously every day. It gives great tips on what to expect, and includes a checklist of things to do. It's actually funny because the second you comment to someone on how your lower back starts to hurt, you will open the app and it will literally say 'today your lower back may start to hurt.' It's definitely one of the best resources. Other than that, I have realized that the greatest thing to do is keep lists. One of my girlfriends has the best lists for everything — from baby nurses to what to bring to the hospital, etc. My sister-in-law, who is also my best friend, has a to-do of what to register for, so I plan on paying that forward!"
What are the ultimate style tips you would give someone else who's expecting?
"I would say to mix and match inexpensive items with your nicer pieces. Whitley Kros
, All Saints
, and J. Crew
have great shirts that you can easily dress up by throwing your hair back in a ponytail with a cute necklace. Stay true to your style. There is no reason to stop dressing cute just because you are a little bigger
. Belts are a definite must! When in doubt, try belting it! You don’t want to look like a tent when you start to show. Basically, you don’t want to be the girl that people say 'is she pregnant or did she just drink too much beer?' Another tip, obviously depending on the person, is to keep on going! Don’t stop having fun, setting dinner dates, and having people over
. My husband and I stay busy, busy, busy
. 'Cause, why not?"
