#RickerPartyof3: A Woodland Baby Shower


Hey lovies! I am so excited to share the events of this past weekend with you! 

Noah's sweet godparents hosted a Woodland themed shower that was everything I could've hoped for! 






John's crafty mama made pins for all of the notable ladies: grandmothers, great grandmothers, god mothers, and aunt




This sweet boy is already so spolied



The ladies from my dad's office that I have known since I was 5.

My little sister




Julie and Jackie-Noah's God Parents

The shower was so much fun with all my favorite people, amazing food (and GORGEOUS food platters), and all the love for this sweet boy! I can't wait for all of these lovely people in my life to meet Noah! 

What date do you think he will make his debut?

#RickerPartyof3: Nursery Inspiration






































You guys, I can not even explain how excited I am for Baby R's nursery. It may come to some who have been around here for a while that his nursery will not be sports themed...I know, right? John and I came to the agreement that the nursery will be a woodland theme and then once he transitions to his a "big boy" room, we will break out all the sports items! 

So, with that, I am sharing my nursery vision board! 

I try to work on this sweet things nursery a little bit every weekend. I can not wait for it to all come together! 

What themes are you thinking for your little peanuts space?

#RickerPartyof3: Second Trimester Chat


Hi loves! I am back today with a second trimester chat! 
If you missed my first trimester, click here

I am literally in shock that this pregnancy is going by so fast. I feel like it was just yesterday that I found out I was pregnant and now there are only three more short months to go until this sweet peanut is here! By now, if you follow me on any social media, you will know that we have picked a name for this sweet one: Noah. 

How Many Weeks?
27 Weeks today

How Big is Baby?
Baby Noah is the size of a head of lettuce! Weighing in a little over 2 pounds and 14.4 inches long. 

Boy or Girl?
as you all already know, we are having a boy! I am so excited. We both said that regardless of boy or girl, we just wanted a happy and healthy baby but, in my perfect world, I have always wanted a boy first and then a girl! 

A post shared by Sarah Emily (@sarahemily_blogs) on

How is Momma Feeling?
I could not be feeling any better! Staying hydrated, much more active/energized and loving all these baby kicks! 

How is Dad Feeling?
John is such a gem. He truly is so supportive and sweet! He is definitely getting anxious and excited but he really has helped with everything around the house! 

Cravings?
Ice cream, cold melon and macaroni and cheese! 

Symptoms?
Really, none. I guess being uncomfortable at night (size wise) but other than that, I have been feeling great. 

Currently?
Anxiously awaiting my Baby Shower and loving on all of our sweet boys ultrasound pictures. We are also working hard to get the house clean and ready for this sweet one as well as his nursery!
