My office was plagued, pardon me- “blessed” by pregnancy. Out of the three full time staff women, two were pregnant.. YIKES whose the sorry bastard that was left with no baby bump- yes, thats me, and lets just say I avoided drinking the water in the building for months.
Back to the blessings- Our office is going to be blessed with two MORE boys (an addition to the other 140 in the office). Naturally we wanted to torture these two mama’s with a nice an awkward work baby shower (can you feel the blessings continue here???)
I normally work hard and drink hard with these two mommy to be’s, so I let the personality and friendship shine through the gifts.
A natural place to start was a place where we always start: a liter of wine. On here, I customized my own label “knocked up no more” just for a touch of class and good taste.
It is only right to end this month the way we began it. The Nordstrom Sale. For the full two weeks of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, #NSale is about all that came up on my feed. Every “Like it to Know it” blogger in America had their best #NSale items linked up and ready to roll and I carefully strategized what I was going to buy for days (yes, I had to wait until it opened to the general public because I am not Nordstrom Royalty, yet.) After weekly scheming and a few returns here are the glam finds that made permanent places in my wardrobe AND that are worth their current full price (I had three things I bought that did NOT make this “full price” post. Cause they aren’t. Just being honest.)
Nothing says TREND ALERT quite like a picture back drop. They look intimidating by all the pinterest queens of America but I am here to tell you that you too can be a #bloggerbetch. Honest, if I can do it in ten minutes, you can..
To all you beautifuls that have no idea what to get the special man in their life, I feel you. I swear that I have the hardest man to shop for- If he wants it, he already bought it. I have toiled with what to buy every single holiday and occasion and because I am a peach I am here to share with you some of the places I start at.
1. Make Something
-I have an overly competitive boyfriend who keeps score of EVERYTHING. There are post-it notes all over his house of scores from Cornhole from two years past, but Lord knows if you were to throw away the evidence of a victory it could no longer exist……. **dramatic eye roll** To combat my competitive hoarder- I crafted a score book out of a mini binder from Target with matching mini binder dividers and paper. Threw a few stickers on it for my clever title of the book “Play to Win” and his initials BAMMMM instant homemade gift and counter de-clutter-er (yes, a word) all in one.
