Four Years & Counting...

Four Years Ago Today...


We were doing this...


Frame_2 


Starting the rest of our lives together.


Our courtship was rather quick... We dated for 2 months... then got engaged... and got married 7 months later. We wouldn't of had it any other way.


We are so blessed. I thank God everyday that he has blessed me with such an amazing Christ-following man.


The last 4 years have flown by... and now with our first child on the way... our sweet Josie girl... I know time is just going to continue to fly by. I think about it and it kinda makes me sad... but excited to know that the rest of our life is just around the corner and we are going to be starting a whole new journey together...Parenthood. It will be our greatest adventure yet. We are so excited. We were both born to be parents I think... Just look at the way we raised our lil furbabies. They behave just like children. In ways that make me second guess how "canine" they are anyway...


Anyway. Here we are, 4 years later...together...happy...and going to be adding one more lil munchkin to the Ulmer home in a few short months! We couldn't be happier...


So to end the sappiness...


I want to talk about my most favorite maternity company & item EVER.


Ingrid & Isabel


I was first exposed to them through Fit Pregnancy Magazine and was introduced to their Bella Band.


I purchased one w/lace at the bottom so it looked more like a tank top underneath my work shirts. It was and still is so very perfect for holding up my pre-pregnancy pants that Im still in. It was such a budget saver. I mean, really... we couldn't afford to just buy new pants and jeans every few weeks as I started to put on baby weight and my belly started to grow. So this just made perfect sense. I now have 5! White with lace, Brown, Navy, Plum, and Grey. These are ESSENTIAL for pregnancy and post pregnancy clothing! They are by far the most comfortable support wear. You will get months more wear out of your pre-pregnancy pants. Im sure once I grow into needing maternity pants/jeans, these will help keep them in place while they are still a little big on me. And Im sure once Josie gets here and Im slowly getting back into my pre-pregnancy pants, these Bella Bands will help out greatly!


Now something else I just got from Ingrid and Isabel is from their NEW ESSENTIALS COLLECTION. It's the rouched tank top. Im wearing it today and I love it. The support it offers is awesome. It's nice and form fitting so your belly has some nice support as well as your chest. It's nice and long, which is something Im loving when I buy maternity shirts. I love the length. It doesn't make me feel "frumpy". It actually makes me feel sexy w/my belly and proud of it... as you should be! It will be able to stretch and grow w/my belly b/c of the rouching sides and also, post pregnancy will add some needed support to my abdomen as it recovers.


Something I am DYING to try from them is the EVERYWEAR PANT. It looks so comfy! And it is so versatile! It might be something I could even pass as a work pant... Which is something I really need...something comfy and that doesn't look frumpy for work. I am just dying to get my hands on a pair of these pants!


So for every mother to be... YOU NEED THESE PRODUCTS... They have made this body transition so much smoother for me. I know they will do the same for you.


Do you have any Ingrid & Isabel products? Tell me what you have and why you love it!! I'd love to hear your experience!


Oh, I did a bit of updating over at Ulmer Studios and revamped some of our albums as well as adding our Investment Page.


We have a great weekend planned for our Anniversary Weekend.


We go for another Anatomy Ultrasound tomorrow morning. Josie was in an awkward position last time b/c of my placenta so they couldn't get an accurate measurement of her head. Then off to spend the day together. I used my last vacation day. Then Saturday, I have my first Pre-Natal Massage. Im pretty excited! Then just more spending time together! Trying to do that as much as we can before Josie gets here. ♥
