WHAT’S IN MY DIAPER BAG

P1111940-2

Hi Everyone,

Today I’ll be sharing my secret to an organized “Diaper Bag”. I don’t know about you, but I personally dislike diaper bags. To me, they don’t look good which is why I didn’t purchase one with my son and now with Eloise. Im currently using my neverful and inside of it I have an organizer by Totesavvy. Let me begin by saying that this product is simply AMAZING! I mean, you can literally fit everything in it and still be able to find everything without digging in your bag for 5 minutes. I LOVE IT!!! I can’t imagine what I’d do without it. I’ll include a link for you all to purchase one, if you’d like of course.

PREGNANCY UPDATE : 31 WEEKS

pa151151-2

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I’m 31 weeks pregnant which means I’m only 9 weeks away from my due date, and that my friends, is so so soon!!! I’m due December 15th but based on how I’ve been feeling and my previous pregnancy I think this little one will be an earlier baby. My husband and I have pretty much settled on a name for our precious little girl but I still have that 2% doubt about it. I’ve grown up knowing that if I was to ever have a little girl I would name her (….) but now that I really am having a girl I”m a little nervous about calling her such a bold name. I just now realized how much easier it is with boy names! I can easily give you 5 names that I LOVE but with girls there’s only a couple and one of them is taken, my beautiful little niece has that name!!! The struggle is R E A L guys!

HOW FAR ALONG: 31 weeks

TOTAL WEIGHT GAIN: I’m currently 138 pounds, which puts me at 28 pounds total :/

MATERNITY CLOTHES: That’s all I can fit at the moment 😉

STRETCH MARKS: Nope!

SLEEP: WHAT SLEEP? Horrible, absolutely horrible. Just last night I woke up at 2 am and couldn’t go back to sleep until 4:30 am! I wake up several times per night to pee. Dark under eye circle game is currently really strong.

BEST MOMENT RECENTLY: Having my husbands mom visit from Washington. My son LOVES her so much and every time she’s over he’s just such a happy kiddo!

MISS ANYTHING: SLEEP!

MOVEMENT: TONS! Sometimes it’s a little scary because her movements can get really strong and painful.

FOOD CRAVINGS: None at the moment.

ANYTHING MAKING YOU QEASY OR SICK: No

LABOR SIGNS: A LOT of braxton hicks! They are getting stronger and stronger the closer I get to my due date…. but nothing to worry about.

MOOD: Moody and very anxious. The closer we get to the due date the more nervous and anxious I’m getting.

LOOKING FORWARD TO: Our 3D ultrasound. I haven’t seen our little girl since our 19 week ultrasound and I can’t wait to see how much she has grown. Has any one of you done a 3D ultrasound?

SIMPLE ACTS OF KINDNESS

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHi friends! Hope you’re all doing amazing 🙂 Starting this week I’ll be switching things up a bit here on N K D I A R I E S. When I started this blog I had this idea to create a space where we all talk about “REAL LIFE” topics. However, as time went on I found myself leaning more towards the fashion and lifestyle category. Although I love fashion and lifestyle related blog posts I really wish that I could chat about topics that are dear to my heart and the daily life challenges we face on this earth.

With that being said, today I’d love to talk about being more kind on social media. Have you ever stopped to think about how mean and rude some ladies are on various social media platforms? I mean, if you take a minute and just read the comments that some women write to other women you’ll be quite disgusted. Why does that happen? Most people will say that it’s because they’re either A. JEALOUS or B. SIMPLY RUDE. What makes it okay for someone to leave a nasty comment  on your picture simply because “that’s how they feel”? Since when is it okay to say mean things to others knowing that it will hurt their feelings? Why have women become so childish and inconsiderate? Social media isn’t for competition or for showing of. It was created so that you could share the things that are special to you with the people you care about. It was created for you to make lifelong friendships. For you to give advice and for encouragement not hate and bashful comments. Please, think about how your simple kind and loving comment can make someones day. Nobody wants to be around the sad and mean person. KINDNESS IS CONTAGIOUS. Your kindness will be recognized and it will encourage someone else to show an act of kindness.

BE KIND AND COMPASSIONATE TO ONE ANOTHER, FORGIVING EACH OTHER, JUST AS CHRIST GOD FORGAVE YOU.
