Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.

BIG Announcement time!

Soooo… things are changing over here for the Jenks fam in a BIG way!! I figured I tipped y’all off when I posted that our sweet little love nest home was for sale–I didn’t think that one out very well.

BUT, we definitely need more room because you probably guessed it…we’re having a BABY!!!

We are so excited (and let’s be honest, a little scared too) about this exciting news. I am 14 weeks, due June 7! I couldn’t’ have picked a busier wedding month, but such is life right? haha.

We found out I was pregnant super super early, around 4 weeks, and let me just tell you it was definitely a mental adjustment! The whole “are you serious, there is a BABY in there” was a lot to take in-especially when you don’t necessarily feel pregnant. We heard the tiny sweet heartbeat at 6 weeks, and went on a cruise with my family around 8 weeks! Not my smartest idea, being on a boat 8 weeks pregnant, holy motion sickness. But overall I have felt amazing. I had about two weeks of being nauseous in the evenings, and some wicked headaches I would like to never have again, but other than that I have felt great! I feel so blessed, I know that is not the case for most pregnant women!

We could not be happier. I have dreamed of being a mommy my whole life, and this is just so surreal. I can’t believe it is my turn! I am really soaking in this time, this first pregnancy. I have been super selfish with my time and energy, and you know what? Not mad about it, haha. I know this time, the calm before the storm if you will, will be short lived so I want to enjoy every moment of it!

How is Tim doing you ask? He is great. He is so excited to be a dad, he is going to be such a great one too!! I hope our little babe gets his hair and his blue eyes! A girl can dream right?? So what kinda baby do you all think this is?? Boy? Girl? I want hear guesses!!

Also, this little dress is one of my favorites, and has been perfect for the “is there a bump or isn’t there” stage of pregnancy I am currently at. Basically I just feel like I have had too many carbs, but no real significant bump to speak of.

The dress is back in stock, so HURRY, it sold out fast last time! I also linked the skirt and top in this print below, as well as some other options if you’re as into plaid as I am right now. I can’t find my shoes anywhere, but I linked some similar Mary Jane options, who doesn’t love a classic Mary Jane am I right?

I have been wanting to share this news since I found out, so this feels like CHRISTMAS MORNING! I am definitely going to be turning to you all for all of the pregnancy insider info! And can I just say, coincidence I think NOT that Carrie underwood is also pregnant right now? Yes my love for her still runs deep.

Right now I am looking for good pregnancy books, so if you have any favorites, leave me a comment below! I also would love to hear guesses on if you think this baby is a boy or a girl! GO!

    Belly laughs is a great humor fun book about pregnancy! Jenny McCarthy author!

    What to expect when expecting was my favorite on all my pregnancies. Wishing you all the best! Congratulations

    so STINKING excited for you BOTH! I’ve been following your blog for a LONG time (and even saw your episode on family fued.. I was like wait.. I know her!– even though I don’t actually “know” you in real life haha I feel like I do by reading your blog) This is such a huge gift and I can’t wait to see your journey! You are going to ROCK being a mommy!

      oh my goodness thank you so much Lisa!! That means the world, I sure hope I can figure it all out! But you are right, it is such a gift and such a blessing!

      And oh my gosh, Family Feud, LOL! They still replay that all the time, I want to crawl under the table. I mean who says “ta-tas” on national television. Me. HA! xo

    What exciting news!! Being pregnant is crazy and wonderful. Adjusting to a life of complete sobriety is bizarre. Lol. But the one book I tell all my mom-to-be friends they have to get is Moms on Call. Every friend of mine has sworn by it. It has a sleep schedule that will literally be a life saving. Congrats and hope all is well throughout your pregnancy. ????

    • admin says:

      Thank you so much Jessica!! I haven’t heard of that one, so THANK YOU! I hear ya, I told my husband earlier how Christmas parties just aren’t the same these days without a glass of wine haha. Thank you so much, we are so excited and feel so blessed!

  4. Michelle says:

    Congrats!! Baby Bargains is a great book. Also, I found Lucie’s list to be the most helpful website, by far. So happy for you!!

    • admin says:

      Thank you so much Michelle!! That is super helpful, I haven’t heard of either so thank you!! We are so excited 🙂

    Oh, yay! What a blessing for your family!
    I say forget all the books and listen to your best girlfriends and your mama. They know best!
    I am a horrible guesser…but I hope it’s a girl because she will have THE best hair ????
