Maternity style in body con dress and oversized cardigan

Raise your hand if you're ready for Fall! (Me, Me!) I don't know if it's being pregnant during the Summer or what, but I. AM. OVER. IT.

Fall has always been my favorite time of the year, but even more so this year. I just want so badly to cuddle up in a cozy cardigan - I'm loving this one - sit by the fire, and light my favorite candle.

Speaking of candles. If you guys don't currently get your candles from Bath & Body Works, you're missing out on life. These are THE best candles. Usually around the holidays Chris and I stock up and have at least 6 on deck at a time. Seriously, the best! Also, they make the great gifts... and they always have killer sales. Who doesn't love candles?!

Anyway, I got sidetracked. Today's post doesn't even really have a theme, I just felt like blogging. It's been a little inconsistent since getting pregnant, but I'm still around. I love that you guys stick with me through the non-existent posts for weeks on end. 'Preciate ya!

Usually when Chris is gone, and I don't have plans over the weekend, I catch up on all of the blogging that I've missed. Plus, it makes me happy.

And on that note, I wanted to share 10 things that currently make me happy.

1. Writing. Thinking. Journaling. 
2. Lighting a candle and relaxing. 
3. Coffee and a good book. 
4. Laughing. 
5. Preparing for the arrival of our two boys. 
6. Owning a business. 
7. Music.  
8. Experiencing building a house, and watching it all come together. Also, just imagining our family in that house. I cannot wait! 
9. Styling looks.
10. Cuddling.

So, when you're feeling overwhelmed, or sad, or just too busy with life - what do you do that makes you happy? How do you wind down?

My life is going to enter complete chaos in just a couple of short months, so I'm open to any recommendations on relaxing and keeping it chill. I have plenty of bottles of Lavender, so you can bet that my diffuser will be on blast at all times. Ha! Maybe when I'm feeling crazy I'll have to come back and read this blog post.

What am I even saying? Although I'm sure I will be a crazy mess, I'm also positive that two sweet little baby faces looking back at me will be the best thing I've ever experienced.

But maybe I'll need a glass of wine. Maybe I'll become a wine drinker. Who knows?! Stick around and I'm sure you'll hear about it. Ha!

Until next time.
