Our Newest Baby, My Fave Tummy Control Leggings + The Weekly Edit

Happy weekly edit Friday! It’s now been a month since our baby debuted! Don’t panic. We’re referring to our Olivia + Ocean collaboration. The other bun in the oven is still projected for a December delivery, hah!

The swimwear collection pretty much took as much time to make as a “real” baby. I also didn’t anticipate modeling the designs while being pregnant, but here we are! It still worked out perfectly to show that the Mommy & Me swimsuits could accommodate a growing belly!

I'm so excited to announce that our Mommy and Me Swimsuit designs for Olivia and Ocean are finally here! Sharing all of the details on our bikinis and one pieces! by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth #swimsuit #style #mommyandme #design

And speaking of the belly, Baby #2 may have given us a huge scare the first trimester, but he/she is definitely growing… A LOT. This is not an exaggeration. My 20-week bump already looks and feels like a bowling ball.

We actually do know the gender, which we’ll announce soon. There wasn’t a big gender reveal party like the one we hosted for Gwen, so don’t expect anything crazy!

In house renovation news, the master bathroom is 99% complete. We came back from our Atlanta trip in July to a nice new big tub to soak in, after lots of walking around at AmericasMart.

For their summer market, AmericasMart had invited us to host a cooking and styling demo. We whipped up our 5-minute bruschetta and skinny jalapeño margaritas.

Then, there was a meet and greet where I pretended to have a personality even though I was still feeling very nauseous since the first trimester. Working mom life, am I right?!

And with that… TGIF! Enjoy our weekly links and reads…

  1. PS I bought the leggings you recommended to wear on an international trip and I am LIVING in them now. So great, especially for postpartum mommas.

    1. Yay! So glad that worked on an international trip! That’s like the true testament of it’s quality! And we are so guilty too of wearing our maternity items still postpartum.

    1. Thanks, Sara! We did a big home renovation with Gwen too. LOL. We dunno why we do that to ourselves…
