Yesterday was a fun day spent sleeping in with my husband and enjoying Baby Liam tap dancing on my belly after we had cinnamon rolls for brunch.

Then we skipped over to Babies ‘R’ Us to finish off our baby registry. It was so much fun going around the store and seeing all of the tiny baby items. It’s amazing to look at those tiny clothes and imagine a baby fitting into them!

I am really loving my maternity pants. They are just so darn comfortable! I found this pair on the Target clearance for $10 and couldn’t resist. The great thing about this pair is that the belly band part is on the shorter side so I can totally get away with wearing them more often!

Dressing while you are pregnant is definitely more of a challenge, but it can still be fun! This top isn’t maternity, but I love how the belt ties over my belly.

The other day I came storming out of my dressing room/office and exclaimed that none of my pants fit anymore. I went out and bought several maxi dresses that same day.

The majority of my winter clothes fit fine, but the weather here in California is just way too hot still. I’m hoping that since it is officially Fall that we will start seeing some lovely Fall weather and soon!

And Two Became Three

I have been holding off on a public announcement… WE’RE HAVING A BABY!

I am 21 weeks pregnant and already completely in love with our baby boy. I apologize for keeping it a secret for so long.

Adding to our family is such a personal and private moment that I just needed some time to enjoy it with my husband before I was ready to share it with all of you.

I had a rough time in my first trimester and that is why my posts and videos became so few and far between. However, I am in my second trimester now and feeling great!

Don’t worry, just like with my wedding, I will not completely change the purpose of this blog. However, being a mommy is a part of who I am now and that will trickle into other parts of my life (like this blog).

Look for a post soon about my first trimester experience and lots of outfit of the day posts sporting my cute baby bump!

Louis, our Pomeranian, will be a big brother soon. I can’t wait to meet our little boy, Liam Matthew Hacker!

As I said in yesterday’s post (you can check it out here- Disneyland Anaheim 2014 Part 1), we went to the Princess Lunch at Ariel’s Grotto Restaurant. Here is a picture of me meeting Princess Minnie Mouse! I have a million other pictures with Minnie and the other princesses, but I’ll save you from that.

I’m always surprised by how much I love the tea cups ride. I literally giggle myself silly the entire ride. It was so much fun! You definitely have to ride the tea cups at night, though. The lights are just way too pretty to miss (and the lines are much shorter)!

I would definitely have to say that Fantasy Land is my favorite area of Disneyland (although ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ is my favorite ride)! The rides there just remind me of how wonderful Disneyland must have been when it first opened. You can tell how much time and energy went into each of those rides. I’m sure pretty much everything is hand painted!

Do you guys love Disneyland as much as I do? Send me a tweet (@ChiqueChic) with pictures from your trip!

We took a family trip to Disneyland Resort Theme Park in Anaheim last month and it was so much fun! My family has always been Disney junkies, so I am always pleasantly surprised when we find things to do there that I have not done before.

One of those things (and probably my favorite) was eating lunch at Ariel’s Grotto. It is called a ‘Princess Lunch’ because you get to meet and greet with Disney Princess while you eat! I’m a grown adult, but I can tell you that I took a picture with each and every one of those princesses that passed my table. I have to say, Minnie Mouse was my favorite!

We also ate at The Blue Bayou restaurant for the first time, as well. That is the restaurant that your boat floats by at the beginning of ‘The Pirates of the Caribbean’ ride. That restaurant was fun, too, but it really just made me want to go hop on the ride! It was definitely fun to go and now I can say, ‘I have ate there!’

I stocked up on Disney shirts before we left, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t grab some fun stuff while I was there. I mean, shopping is part of the magic of Disneyland, right?

Stay tuned for Part 2 tomorrow!

Grey Midi Dress

I originally ordered this dress online thinking it was a maxi dress. I was pleasantly surprised when a midi dress showed up. It is the perfect amount of sex appeal without going overboard. The cut out on the back has the perfect positioning, too!

The trick with ordering tight dresses is to order a size up. It gives you a little more forgiveness (and some wiggle room if it shrinks a little in the wash).

I think this dress is going to transition well into Fall, too. I plan on just throwing on an edgy leather jacket and hitting the road.
