bump



My baby bump at 24 weeks, taken this morning by the baby-daddy-to-be. Still not a huge baby bump to be bragging about, really, it must be all baby in there. A very active baby at that, happily kicking the day/night away. We pick up the baby's cot tonight, that is going to be surreal! The first big thing we have bought for our baby. Must get a wriggle on now with only 16 weeks to go. My sister's friend had her baby 7 weeks early so you really do have to be prepared, just in case. I hope this one stays in for the full recommended cooking time. Early January, thank you very much.


We might stop for a bite to eat on the way home from picking up the cot to celebrate: 1. 24 weeks and buying our bub somewhere to sleep; 2. Putting our house on the market today; and... 3. Our house being featured in Real Living mag! 


Wait what??? You say. I can finally reveal that our house is going to be in the next issue of Real Living! Our postie delivered our copy today and I have to tell you it is the most bizarre (but amazing!) feeling to read and see yourself and home in a magazine.  I know a few of you have already got your copy too. It's on newstands on Monday so make sure you go out and buy a copy. I will share a pic or two next week.

  1. Congratulations on the bump! Coming along nicely!! I'll be sure to pick up a copy of Real living mag, just out of curiosity, did they contact you for the feature or another way? What an exciting time of your life!
    Good luck on your house hunting! Or have you already purchased something else? Can't wait to see nursery project pics!

  3. Hi Laura, the stylist contacted me about the feature and we took it from there - I think she found me through my online store/blog. Did you know Real Living had a reader decorating competition at the moment where you can submit pics of your home and if you win you have your house featured in the mag? Could be worth a go.

    We are looking at houses but will wait and see if ours sells first.

  10. You look fantastic Julie! Will definitely buy the next issue of Real Living. That's not too bad a timeline. I found out that I won't be in Home Beautiful until December. 6 months after the shoot!

  16. Loved your home in Real Living. How exciting to be featured in a mag.

    Also - congratulations on growing a baby! Even through the haze of morning sickness I have still found being pregnant to be one of the most amazing experiences. Wishing you all the best - and will look forward to popping in every now and then to catch up on your journey :)
