Third Time Around | B3 Week 28

My motivation to write about pregnancy has been dwindling and I was starting to doubt that I would finish this post. For the sake of tradition, I wanted to write a "threequel" to the  "Second Time Around" post from two years ago (my pregnancy with W). Some details have been different in this pregnancy but much has been the same. Mostly I haven't had much time to think about and plan for this baby! With the "big brothers" now 2- and 4-years-old, they seem to take up most of my brain space. I think we're okay though. All of the baby clothes are in storage, some newly washed and some not, and the baby "things" are still around too. Baby even got a couple new things - I may share more on that later. All I need to do is order newborn diapers in a couple months and we should be set, right? I feel so out of touch with all that goes into newborn life.

Hitting the Trails with Under Armour | UA Horizon RTT Review

Disclaimer: I received Under Armour Horizon RTT trail shoes to review as part of being a BibRave Pro.

They even served cookies & pretzels!

The Horizon RTT's offer a strong sole that can withstand tough, rocky terrain with a high traction rubber lug outsole that provides dependable traction wherever you run. Whether it's a mix of trail and road o

Bold Activewear with Jill Yoga

Life with small children is active to stay the least and comfortable clothes are a must. Make it stylish and that's an extra bonus! Yoga pants or running shorts are my regular wardrobe components for practical reasons but I also don't want to look like a slob. What can I say, a girl appreciates cute clothing! I was sent a vibrant activewear outfit from Jill Yoga to review and their clothing is anything but blasé. Jill Yoga 's mission is to promote confidence and healthy active living - Be Active, Be Bold, Be You . The Ladies' Seamless Quarter Zip is a brightly colored top made of a very comfy, breathable material with long sleeves and thumbhole detail. I wear this long-sleeve for casual non-workout days as well as when I'm out on a run. Even with a 6-month-pregnant belly (pictured below), this quarter zip does the trick. The thumbholes and plenty of length in the torso are my favorite aspects. Though the days are still hot here, on the chilly early
