third trimester update

third trimester update

Two blog posts in one week?! Who am I? This is what happens when I’ve ramped down most of my client work and have much more free time before #littlebabyburd‘s arrival! Today I wanted to share a quick third trimester update on how things have been going during the home stretch of my pregnancy. I shared a second trimester update here and a first trimester update / baby announcement here.  So today’s post covers approximately weeks 28-38 (today!). Here’s some highlights from the past few weeks as well as random info like how I’m feeling physically/emotionally, how we’re prepping for baby, what I’m reading, etc.! THIRD […]

statement art + gallery wall with minted

statement art + gallery wall with minted

  Up until recently, we had the same art hanging in our apartment (#aesfnest). In our living room, above our dining table (and previously above the couch), we had four vintage prints of San Francisco. They were a gift from my parents a few years ago and while I love them, I have been itching for a change in that room. In or bedroom, we have two gallery walls on either side of the bed and I’ve changed around some of the art over the last few years, but there were still some stragglers – pieces that weren’t great or contributing to the overall aesthetic […]

maternity style

The countdown is on – just a few weeks until Bebe Burd is here! I’ve had a few people ask me questions about maternity clothes and what I’ve been wearing throughout my pregnancy, so wanted to share today! Pretty much I’ve been wearing the same 15-20 items throughout my entire pregnancy. It’s been an unintentional capsule wardrobe of sorts! I’ve found that this has worked for me, because I work from home and don’t have to get “fully dressed” every day. Leggings and comfy clothes like t-shirts and tank tops were my best friends. ? I also have been rotating through the same few items because […]

SF Gems: Laundré, the chicest laundromat (ever)

SF Gems: Laundré, the chicest laundromat (ever)

Let’s talk about laundry. I’m going to share about this new laundromat (or “laundry experience”) here in SF called Laundré , but first, I want to take a step back and talk dirty about this whole laundry topic. I’ve lived in San Francisco for 6+ years, and never had laundry in my actual apartment unit. Sigh. For those of you who don’t live in SF, you probably think this is INSANE (and it kind of is), but it’s pretty common here. The “lucky ones” have a washer and dryer or two somewhere in their building. Often the laundry in these buildings is located in a creepy basement […]

Hi! We recently had some family photos taken via Minted’s new Photo Op program and I wanted to share them on my blog! We took our photos a few blocks around our apartment, including in Alamo Square (our go-to park for picnics and dog adventures). Minted’s Photo Op program allows you to set up and schedule a convenient 30-minute family portrait mini session and holiday card styling for just $100. It’s a perfect and affordable way to get high-quality, professional photos that you can use for holiday cards, hang in your home, or just to keep for yourself. More details below! I really love how our […]

air travel with pets: tips and tricks

Today, we’re heading to LA and Ohio for a total of three weeks! Jack will be joining, so this will be his 8th, 9th and 10th flights of the year. ? ✈️’ Ive had a few people ask me about tips for traveling with a pet, so thought I would share some tips and tricks for airline pet travel! I’m definitely no expert on this topic, and only know what I know through personal experience and recommendations from friends. I do want to preface this post with two things – every airline has their own policies and procedures for pet travel so make sure you research […]
