bumpdate: A S H E R | H A Y E …

        Photo by Rachel and Noah Ray So sorry I have been absent for the past couple of weeks…BUT we have been super busy with our precious little prince.  On August 14th, our lives changed forever!  Ryan and I welcomed our SON (yes, it’s a BOY) Asher into the world.  Never in a million years could I have imagined that I would be capable of loving 2 people SO much.  So, why 2 weeks early?  And did I have c-section or deliver naturally?  SO many questions, I know.  Asher’s original due date was YESTERDAY (August 26th), and his 2…

INSTA-BUMP

DRESS Helmut Lang | VEST LAMARQUE | SHOES Jimmy Choo | BRACELETS Vita Fede | NECKLACE Tat2 Designs | PHONE CASE Zero Gravity Hey y’all!  So, as I was writing this, I was headed home from my LAST work trip before #babylutz makes his or her grand entrance.  If you have been following my pregnancy, you know that I have truly LOVED being pregnant and have really embraced the changes.  However, I honestly struggled a bit that trip.  Contractions, swelling, you name it…so I was definitely glad to have the blog help me stay occupied during my trip home.  I was praying every second…

SWOON

the lutz bump + the hubs maternity photography:  Rachel and Noah Ray Today is #bumpday, which is a day dedicated to “bringing awareness to the importance of healthy pregnancies and beautiful bumps all over the globe.”  You can read more about this cause at www.bumpday.org, but I thought this was a PERFECT day to post our maternity pictures featuring the hubs and the #lutzbump. How amazing are these pictures?  We had SO much fun with this shoot!  Trust me, I was super nervous at first, but it became much easier to rock the bump as the evening went on.  It truly is amazing what the female…

ROCK THE BUMP: Flares

Happy Thursday, y’all!  One more day until the weekend.  YES!!!  So, what has been one of the BIGGEST trends this year?  Can anyone guess?  FLARES (I totally called this back in December, by the way.  See post HERE).  Anyways, I LOVE a good flare…whether it’s jeans, Bam Bam Bells, or a comfy knit pair, I have been rocking these since ‘nam.  They are super flattering and VERY COMFY.  Which is always key. When the #babybump started showing, I immediately began looking for a pair of maternity flares.  Um, they don’t exist.  I found ONE pair that were super cute, but they…

INSTA-LA

SHIRT Zara • VEST La Marque • HAT Janessa Leone • SHOES Chloe Gladiators A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to visit somewhere I have never been: LA!!!!  Can you believe I have never been there?  Let me just tell you…I LOVED IT and was ready to move to Lala Land!  The hubs was not too keen on that idea.  Although I did not have a TON of free time…pretty much one dinner and half a day, I definitely made the best of it.  It also ended up being a super productive trip in terms of baby-prep.  I visited this SUPER…

LOCAL IS BETTER: Father’s Day

“Procrastinator?  No, of course not.  I just wait until the last second, because I will be older and therefore wiser.” So, you’re welcome.  This Father’s Day GIFT GUIDE will be oh so much better, since I waited until the last minute!  But because of my procrastinator status, this gift guide is for all the BIRMINGHAM folks!  Or for the people that have dads that live in the ‘Ham OR for those people that are willing to shop online!  But lemme tell ya, it’s pretty good if I say so myself.  By the time you read this, you will have 4 and…

Well, HELLO 3rd trimester!!!  Wow, what an awesome journey it has been so far!  I feel so lucky to be carrying this sweet bambino in my tummy and CANNOT wait to meet Baby Lutz.  Baby is moving oh so much, AND we got to see that sweet face earlier this week.  I think he/she has Ryan’s lips!  This makes me so happy, because he definitely has the prettiest lips.  😉  SO, let’s cut to the chase and get to the BUMPDATES! How far along: 29 weeks, 1 day!  SO CLOSE!! Cravings: Absolutely zero cravings!  Diet is normal!  Weeeeeelll, actually, I do love chips.  But…
