bumpdate: 20 weeks

Okay, I may be a week and a half late posting this BUT I am getting around to the 20 week bumpdate. I feel like so much has happened  in the last 6 weeks however that could just be because I do more than eat bagels, sleep, and work... I, my friends, have become a member of society again! The questions, how are you feeling comes my way my answer is GREAT! At week 7, 8, or 9 I never thought those words would come out of my mouth, but here I am. I honestly feel great. Of course there are some second trimester symptoms that are present but compared to the first trimester this is a breeze!

pregnancy style; leggings on repeat

This week marks 20 weeks of pregnancy for me. I can't believe it! I remember being 13 or 14 weeks and thinking 20 was soooo far away, but now it's here. Living in a small town maternity clothes are as difficult to come by as one would expect. For this reason I was able to hold off on purchasing any maternity clothes until just a week or so ago. A little secret though, if you are like me and have been holding off on purchasing maternity pants go get yourself a pair because they are life changing. I think I want to continue wearing them even when not pregnant haha. 

I wasn't sure how much my body was going to change when becoming pregnant. You see these beautiful women on Instagram who literally look like models with tiny bodies and the cutest bellies. It was almost immediately where I felt my body change, my shorts and jeans literally didn't fit at 8 or 9 weeks, I was so shocked. I have turned to dresses and lots of leggings since then!

Gender Reveal: Baby Girl Puckett

Last month we were able to throw together a little BaByQ gender reveal party with some friends and family! We have been working so hard on the yard, both front and back all summer long. It was just one year ago we were able to move into our little farm house and we have a one year goal to get the house presentable! If you remember our initial home post (here) our little cozy farmhouse is only 807 sq ft, so when having a party/bbq/people over ever we need to be OUTSIDE! We are lucky enough to have a huge enclosed deck and lots of grass to run and play. 

Our goal was to have the yard ready but the end of summer. I wanted to have a little gender reveal party but mostly it was an excuse to have our friends and family over to see what we have been working on. I also felt that if I gave Stephen a deadline he would be sure to get the work done! If you remember on Instagram and from this backyard patio inspiration post I was trying to find the best use for our deck area to accommodate seating. Take a look a what we have accomplished so far...

Okanagan Summer: Pear Picking Adventure

Disclosure: I have partnered with YMC and OnStar and have received compensation for this post. All opinions are my own.

Okanagan Summers are one for the books, always. Every year you can count on beautiful weather, warm lakes, fresh fruit from the local orchards, and lots of outdoor time! We spent last summer building our home so this summer we wanted to take full advantage to get adventurous with exploring the Okanagan in full. If you have been following along on here for some time or on Instagram you know we made it a priority to explore lots of what BC has to offer, even what is in our own back yard!

Fresh fruit is a total hit in our household! Sofia loves almost any fruit you give her and the most recent obsession is Pears. Last year we went peach picking, remember this post? Earlier in the Summer Stephen and I spent a morning cherry picking, I posted an instagram here of it! So when Pear season came into play we knew Sof would be all over it. We spent a day driving around to different orchards Pear picking and then headed off to have a picnic overlooking the Lake!
