But First, Football!

FOOTBALL. Enough said, right? I can't be the only one around here this excited for football to start. I'm so excited for this weekend to get here so that we can get all dressed up and enjoy Hadley's first Auburn game with her! Even though we have plenty of game day outfits, I really like to get hyped up during the week by repping my team colors when I'm out shopping around town. Here's a little outfit I've put together to get us all in the mood! 

Tank | I bought this ADORABLE tank last week, but haven't gotten it in yet! It's a groupon deal, but checked out the company before ordering. They have great reviews, so I took a chance. I'm excited to get it in and see how it fits. It's still 100 degrees here in Alabama, so this tank top is honestly the only option when I'm running errands with Hadley for these upcoming weeks until it cools down a bit. And this seriously is like the cutest tank, I might end up buying Dave one of their t-shirts soon!

Urban Peach Pendant | If you haven't checked out Urban Peach yet, DO IT NOW! This $3 necklace, yes, I said $3, is so cute! I buy from their site all the time because of how trendy and cheap they are. I can still stay up to date on what's new without the boutique price tag. I'm going to have to add this pendant to my cart and get it soon because this would go with almost any outfit. I'm still having a few issues with wearing some necklaces though because of Hadley. If they grab her attention, I usually only have them on for a few minutes before they fall victim to my diaper bag! I will definitely be excited for the day where I don't have to worry about that anymore, but then again, at that point, I'll be buying her jewelry! Hehe

Old Navy Jeans | I bought these a few weeks ago during one of my many, many trips to Old Navy. They were on sale and I really love straight legged pants for spring/fall because I keep them cuffed and it keeps me a little bit cooler than if I were wearing skinny jeans. They're on clearance on the website right now for $21, so get them soon before they sell out! They have these in plus and maternity too, all on clearance. 

Yeti | My Yeti has been in my hand all summer long. I've been drinking so much water to keep up with Hadley and the heat around here. It keeps ice cold for like FOREVER and my water is never warm when I take a sip. I leave it around the house and whenever I'm thirsty, I start drinking and 99% of the time, it's still freezing cold. It fits in my cup holder in my car and on both of my strollers, so I really do take it wherever I go. I even got a decal for it off of Etsy to make it a little bit cuter and my mother-in-law got a handle and cute straw for it so that it's easier for me to hold. During football season, it's going to do a great job of keeping my beer cold! 

Converse | I live in my converse, especially my white ones. They are always by our backdoor because I know I can throw them on just about anytime I'm wearing jeans! I love how comfortable they are and when they get dirty, I just toss them right in the wash and they come out looking brand new. I have 2 other pairs, but right now, these are my favorite. 

I couldn't be more excited for football to start because it means cooler weather, enjoying friends and family, gameday food, and of course, football! Here's to the PAINFULLY LONG WEEK AHEAD and War Eagle!

Our Summer Was Amazing

Hey all! I feel like it's been forever since I've posted on here, but life is very time consuming with a baby, goodness. I've been so focused on having TWO mortgages as well as trying to decorate/unpack our new home, while following a crawling baby around! I just wanted to get on here and recap our summer for you. It's been a fun one, and definitely one for the books - Here's a little recap of all we did, using photos, because, that's always the best way to tell a story! 

First off, WE MOVED! I posted some photos that we took the day we moved in here and our home buying experience here. We are IN LOVE with our new home and couldn't be happier. Unfortunately, we do have two homes STILL. Ugh. Could that suck anymore? I guess if you have three? Haha. We have had several offers, but for some reason, they've all fallen through for some reason. We even got another call today, but we've learned to not get our hopes up. We know it will sell, it just sucks waiting, and paying two mortgages/power bills/etc.

Isn't it the cutest house? I think it has so much personality because it was built in the late 70's! The inside is even better, check out this post to see some more pics from when we moved in.

Cutie Bibs for Hadley {{GIVEAWAY}}

This post is sponsored by My Great Baby, but all opinions are 100% my own. 

Hadley has officially started eating three meals a day. Why has she grown up so fast? I thought starting her on baby food would be a slow process and I would jump in when she was like one or something. I was totally off on that baby timeline!! She wants food all the time. Right now we do mostly purees with puffs at the end. She really has a love for puffs and so do I because it takes her so long to eat them. It gives me a little time to get some stuff done around the kitchen while she's eating. Once a day we try some real food, be it eggs, potatoes, green beans, carrots, etc. She definitely likes real vegetables more than baby food veggies, so we try to give her those more often. Anyway, keeping her clean has been a HUGE problem. She is a REALLY messy eater. She likes to put everything in her mouth herself. EVERYTHING. Therefore, food gets in her hair, in her neck, in her armpits, all over the high chair and the floor!

Hadley's Birth Story

Our birth story is way less stressful than the one that I thought I would be posting about one day. At about 35 weeks (early December) we had a scheduled ultrasound because I had been measuring several weeks ahead since about half way through our pregnancy. They were simply just checking her measurements to make sure she wasn't already a 9 pound baby. To my surprise, she was right on track, measuring 5 lbs 6 oz. However, the reason behind the measurements coming up further along than 35 weeks was because she was breech. Her head was sticking out so much that it was causing a bigger measurement. At this point, I was a little upset because I only had a few more weeks to get this little girl to change her positioning and I had no idea how to make it happen. The doctor didn't seem too worried about it at the moment because she had 5 weeks to turn. By the next week, she explained that we could try to turn her or simply schedule a c-section. The decision to not try to turn her was a hard one, but I was just too nervous that I might go into labor 3 weeks early and that she would be premature. Therefore, we scheduled a c-section for 39 weeks and 2 days on January 6th. The next few weeks were extremely stress free as we enjoyed Christmas and enjoyed knowing that I most likely wouldn't go into labor! 

On the 6th, we woke up at 4 AM to get to the hospital by 5:20 to start getting prepped for the c-section. We were able to leisurely register and start getting assessed by a nurse. Dave was able to enjoy his coffee, thank goodness! Needless to say, we were way too excited when 7:00 came around and they started to roll me down the hall to the OR.

New Home Sweet Home!

The Hueby's officially have a new home! We realized that the house we currently own was too small the day we brought our sweet girl home from the hospital. She came with quite a few (million) things that take up a lot of space. We began the house buying journey - explained here in this previous post - in March. We officially closed this past Friday, May 6th! We couldn't be more excited to be in our forever home with plans of an amazing future. We wanted to commemorate today with some photos so that we have this memory forever. Our lives will change a lot in the next 10 years and these photos will truly be cherished memories then. Thanks to Dave's sister, Leah, for taking these amazing photos. Check our her work here!
