You’re expecting to your first! So exciting! What’s a typical day for your right now? Are you out of the tiredness most get in the first trimester?

I am SO excited! A typical day for me right now is not very exciting! Haha, I get up –go to work- come home and work in my shop. Right now in my free time I have been trying to get started on clearing out the baby room and organizing the house. (It is SO not babyproof right now!) I am out of the tiredness and morning sickness phase—THANK goodness! That was the worst!

How do you prioritize your to-do list?

Honestly, I struggle with this. But right now I go day by day and mentally work out my days schedule. I don’t like to go out during the week, there’s just not enough hours in a day to get things done and with my shop, I need to hustle those orders out in a timely manner!

Are you craving anything odd? What’s your go-to meal right now?
I have been craving fruits, smoothies, and spicy food. Hot Cheetos all day and Tapatio on EVERYTHING! 



How many hours of sleep do you get on a regular basis?
I try to get at least 8 hours of sleep a day. I just can’t function with less, and my fur babies don’t let me sleep in. They are totally on a schedule and know they want to eat at exactly 6:45 every morning.

What’s one thing that you’ve experienced so far in your pregnancy journey that surprised you?


How hard it’s getting to bend over just to shave my legs or pick something off the floor.

You’re a Graphic Designer – what’s your favorite job to work on? (Branding, web, advertisements, etc)
My favorite would be advertisements and flyers. I love putting together things that make a statement and grab attention.

Do you plan on taking time off of work after the baby comes? How long?
Yes, right now I am still unsure. Of course I want to be a stay at home mom but that’s not looking too likely just yet. I am hoping to have at least 6-8 weeks after the baby comes so I can spend those precious moments with him/her. I also have been considering part time after baby but I’ll need to see if that’s an option at my job.

You mention you have 2 pups, are you prepping them for the little babes coming?
Yes! I have been trying to get them to smell all the baby products we have so far and get used to the baby room. I need to add in some baby cry sound effects so they can get used to that too!

Is the nursey done yet? What style do you have in mind?
No we just started clearing out the room getting rid of things we no longer need and selling the furniture that we had. I was chosen to be an audience member for the Ellen Degeneres Mother’s Day show so I wanted to wait till the show to see what we can start on for the room.
Also we find out the gender June 3!

What’s one quote you stand by? Dream big, Work hard and surround yourself with good people


What fuels your inspiration for your work? How do you gather ideas?
Honestly, daily life. I could look at beautiful scenery and be inspired and spark new ideas. I try to write them down as soon as they spark otherwise I’d forget and be bummed later when trying to remember what I thought of!
