As a blogger, I have thousands of pictures saved on my computer. I’ve been trying to get better at deleting the ones I don’t wish to save a little more regularly and when I was organizing photos last night, I stumbled upon a handful of pictures from the past two or three months that never made the blog that either made me laugh or smile thanks to a nice memory attached to the photo. And yes, the vast majority involve Sadie, my favorite little ham.
Here are a few of the pictures in one big photo overload post!
- Sadie Hijacking Baby Bump Pics
Sadie clearly doesn’t want the baby to be the center of attention as evidenced by her desire to be held right in the middle of Ryan taking my 18-week baby bump picture. She’s a needy lil’ lady, that’s for sure. She definitely cracks us up!
I don’t think I’ve blogged about this little gem located right in the middle of downtown Davidson, but it’s such a cute local spot. Everything from their baked goods and quiche to their passion tea (pictured above) and coffee is delicious! I stopped by with my friend Kristen for the first time a few weeks ago when she was in town and have been back a few times since and only have good things to say!
- Missing The First Snow
I was a little bummed to miss our very first snow in Charlotte this year when I was traveling in February, but Ryan made me smile when he sent me this picture. Embrace the cheesiness!
- Awkward Behind-The-Scenes Shots
Oh how I envy the bloggers out there who have professional photographers take their photos for various workout or fashion-related blog posts. Ryan is my go-to photographer and I end up walking away from most of my super-professional “backyard blogger photo shoots” with the vast majority of the photos looking like the wonderfully awkward pictures you see above. Since Sadie has to be in the middle of everything, she never makes snapping a quick photo easy, that’s for sure!
- Meeting Leah’s Baby
My entire trip to Chicago at the end of February didn’t make it on the blog because the following week I announced we were expecting a baby and things got a little baby crazy! Well, while I was actually in Chicago, things were baby crazy, too, because we had the chance to meet my friend Leah’s sweet 6 month old baby boy for the first time. He was such a happy little guy and that trip meant a lot to me because it really, really helped me imagine what life might be like once our baby boy arrives. Seeing one of my very best friends embrace her new role as a mom wholeheartedly made me feel all the more excited for that time in our lives as well!
- Paddle Boarding
On one beautifully sunny Sunday last month, Ryan and I went paddle boarding on the lake! We took Sadie with us for her first paddle boarding adventure and she did pretty well until she decided she wanted to swim back and forth from one paddle board to the next, completely soaking both me and Ryan in the process. This won’t be an issue in the summertime when it’s nice and warm, but it was still rather chilly outside, so Sadie is banned from paddle boarding adventures until both the lake and outside temperatures heat up a bit!
- Maternity Jeans Debut
Ryan snapped this picture right before we left to pick up my friend Ashley at the airport and head out to dinner a few weeks ago. It was my first time wearing jeans in months (seriously!) and after living in leggings for most of my pregnancy so far, we needed proof.
- Ryan + Sadie
These two are my favorites! Now that I’ve surrendered to the fact that I’ll never be Sadie’s favorite, I can better embrace their ridiculous bond. They really do bring so much joy into my life every single day.
