The Final Countdown

One week from today, you’ll be in my arms.

You’ll get to see your Daddy’s handsome face for the first time.

You’ll get to meet your grandparents, your aunts, your uncles, your cousins – all the people who have been praying for you and loving you so well already.

One week from today, I imagine the Lord will be smiling as the little family He’s creating begins. ❤️

Enormous thanks to Kristi Cormack and Alyssa Ulrich for taking these photos for us. (And to Andrew, who took the last three pictures and graciously endures all my photoshoots. 😉)

ONE MORE WEEK. ❤️

A Pregnant Pause

Last week, I finished all my shoots and editing for the year. 🙌🏼 The past several days have been spent cleaning and re-organizing my entire house. It has been the most exhilarating feeling ever. ;) I am SO excited to finally have some down time again! With just under 4 weeks until our little Annie arrives, I am planning to push the pause button and soak up all the free time I can. And while I’m still working one job, it’s nice to have put a hold on the CaitPhoto side for now. I plan to clean and nap as much as possible the last few weeks before baby joins us. ;)

The past month has been full of baby showering, date nights, and nursery work. I can’t believe we only have a month left before she’s here!

These sweet beauties threw us the BEST baby shower! We are so thankful for all the sweet people who already love our Annie!

Mom-in-law strikes again. 😉

I’m at a party if there are Uncle Mitch cookies. 🍪

I love this sweet BFF so much!

All the feels.

My not-so-little, little sister looked so pretty. What a grown-up. 😭

I win at in-law family. 😉

Sweet Mama. 💕

People who get me gift me things like this. ❤️ (Thanks, Molly!)

Having a moment with Goldie. 😍

Love these cutie coworkers of mine!

This picture makes my heart happy. I have so many good memories with these babes! 💕

It was such a fun surprise to have my cousin and aunt come out from Georgia!

And finally, Annie’s namesake – just being the cutest. 🤗

In other news, we’ve been eating out entirely too much, but we figure we’d better cherish it while we can! 😉 Halls Pizza Kitchen was a winner!

And Flint is always a winner for breakfast.

We’re still exercising (every now and then lol) to keep those calories at bay. ;)

Baby laundry is so much cuter than adult laundry.

I’m also soaking up the snuggles with this pooch. His world is about to turn upside down. ;)

I waited my whole pregnancy for the fair to arrive. 🙌🏼

And it did not disappoint. 😉

I’ll do a full post on Annie’s nursery when it’s completely finished, but here’s a little peek for now. 😊 (Jack is so proud.)

Happy Sunday, loves!

The Overwhelming Summer

I thought being pregnant would get me out of a lot more, but it turns out I’m just as busy and life is just as crazy. 🙃 We’ve been running 100 MPH, and I’m just briefly emerging from the chaos before it starts back up again. My multi-tasking brain is out of hand, and I’ve been working my butt off the last couple months. And pregnancy brain? It’s real.

BUT HEY GOOD NEWS. I’ll have a baby 😳 in just 3 months, and that’ll give me a great excuse to end the busy, right? 😝

Let’s play catch up on the last few weeks – they’ve been full of crazy, but full of fun!

Andrew is very excited (like, tears-in-his-eyes-excited) that a Potbelly’s has finally graced Oklahoma. This one is on NW Expressway, but we’re getting another one just 15 minutes away soon!

Sweet baby Boswell has graciously allowed me to return to chocolate, particularly chocolate-chip pancakes. PRAISE.

We had a blast celebrating my new sister at her bachelorette party! Gabby is officially a BOSWELL! 💕 (Keep scrolling for wedding pics.)

These girls are SO much fun.

We rehearsed with perfect weather. ❤️

My mom-in-law knows how to throw a party. 💃🏼

The best maid of honor and best man ever. 😍 Their speeches had us all in tears and giggles.

❤️

Baby Annie rocked her first wedding. 💕

Prettiest little bride!!!

All hail Mom-in-law’s skills.

It was so fun to be a bridesmaid with this cutie co-worker!

So. Much. Fun.

So proud to call this looker mine. 😉😍

Perfect fam photo by Holly Gannett Photography. ❤️

The week after the wedding was spent working a bunch, but we had a visit from baby Goldie Jane! 💕

This hunk and I celebrated 10 years of dating last month. HOLY COW. We went back to our first date and reminisced at Steve’s Rib. 😊

This is the exact face Jack gives Andrew every single day when he comes home from work until he takes him outside to play. 😂

Post-playtime.

I passed my glucose test…

…by bringing my Mama for moral support.

We celebrated with pizza, of course. 🍕🙌🏼

Let me continue the feast photos by quickly plugging Longhorn Steakhouse yet again. The chicken and steak combo was sent directly from God.

We partied with family to celebrate Brad’s birthday and Pop-Pop’s 90th birthday!

My sweet Mom-Mom (who Annie is being named after) gave us this perfect little book. If you haven’t read it, grab a box of tissues before you do. 😭

We watch Independence Day every 4th of July. I never regret it. 🇺🇸

We had perfect walking weather on the 4th too!

I didn’t think I’d do fireworks this year, but turns out my pregnancy is pretty darn easy aside from the bathroom breaks. ;) Haha.

We also celebrated Andrew’s grandma turning 87! Sweetest thing.

And I finally got to catch up with these beautiful besties. They make me laugh so much! ❤️

I’ll post an update on baby’s nursery soon, but here’s a quick preview. Lol. (Still 95% sure Jack has no clue.)

Happy Thursday, friends! 😄
