David surprised me with a date night this week and took Atticus and I to a fun apartment he rented with an amazing view and its own private deck. He told me to dress up so I wore my new Ingrid and Isabel white lace dress! They have the most flattering maternity pieces and I love that I can still feel dressed up and pretty while being pregnant. David made us homemade pasta which is my absolute favorite and we ate out on the deck after we put Atticus to sleep and then watched the sunset and sat and talked! It was a really really really good night :)

What color are these shoes. I cannot find them anywhere ? These are manolo’s right. Style Bb?
I can’t find the exact link either 🙁 so sorry!!
I love this dress on you!! I am wanting to order it for a wedding next month, what size are you wearing? I see it runs small and I’m thin like you:) Thank you!!
Hi love!! Thanks so much! And I believe I am wearing a size small! So that should work great for you 🙂 xo
Hey girl! What size did you order in this dress?! It says online it runs small. So im so wondering what size to order.
Hi!! I am so sorry I am just seeing this! I got it in a size small 🙂 Thanks!!
I loved your hairstyle! Please tell us how to do <3 You're lovely, I'm from Brazil and I love your blog. God bless
Thanks so much!! You can check out my hair tutorials on my YouTube channel 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/user/fillerup8/videos
Where does Amber ever advertise being LDS? She never mentions the church or doing anything with the church in anything she posts.
I am really wanting to order this dress for my shower and am wondering on fit and sizing. I was a 0-2 pre-pregnancy, so it looks like I need to order the xsmall but am wondering if it will be too snug and I should size up. Thoughts or recommendations? Thanks for your help and you look stunning!
I am so sorry I somehow am just seeing this comment 🙁 I am sure this is no longer relevant haha! But congratulations!! xoxo
You are so gorgeous! I came across your page on instagram and now found your blog. I am so jealous of how often you can travel. If you don’t mind me asking, how do you get to travel so much?
Aww thank you Kylie!! I am so glad you are following along now 🙂 Luckily, I can take my work with us anywhere so we love to incorporate traveling into our work and make it a family vacation along the way. xo
You are just so gorgeous.. after reading this post I said to my husband: “I also want to be pregnant!!”
Wow you are too sweet!! Thank you!! Pregnancy is so beautiful!
You are so pretty, how do you keep your hair so healthy?
Thanks so much Emma!! And I will post a post I did awhile back about my tips for healthy hair 🙂 xo
love your stories
Thanks so much!! 🙂
You should not be commenting things like this on her posts. Keep your thoughts to yourself
Amber I love your hair and your dress! I always use your tutorials on youtube to braid my hair and people compliment it so much! I always tell them to check out your insta, and youtube! I adore you sweet girl (:
Thank you so much!! I am so glad you like the look 🙂 And yay!! That makes me so happy to hear!! Thanks for following along gorgeous! xo
It was a great night!! 🙂 Thanks so much for reading Angie!! xo
You are just the loveliest there ever was. Love keeping up with yalls life. You just seem to be the sweetest soul.
Ahh you are soo sweet!! Thank you so much beautiful!! Love ya! xo
You look amazing, this dress suits you perfectly and is a perfect match with the shoes :). It’s wonderful to see fashionable pregnant women. You look always very happy and that makes your pictures look even more special.
Aww thank you so so much!! You are too kind!! Thanks for making my day! Have a great weekend! xo
Thank you so much!! xo
Lovely shoes! I don’t think I can pull off this color though 😛
Thank you gorgeous!! And yeah right! You totally could 🙂
I love your blog and I am obsessed with braids. I recently found this pin of a cute braid hairstyle which I would love to see you do a tutorial on…if you are interested in seeing the pic I am referring to please let me know…..and how I can get it to you. Thanks for all these great tutorials!!!!
Thank you so much!! I love hearing that 🙂 And I would love to see the pic!! You can email it to me at [email protected] xoxo
Love this, you are a beautiful woman with an amazing family but should you be drinking during your pregnancy??❤️????
Aww thank you so much!! And oh don’t worry it isn’t alcohol 🙂 xo
This is not original, but a woman can never hear too often how lovely she looks. Especially when she’s pregnant (I actually think I felt my prettiest when I was pregnant.) What a fun surprise as well. Have to ask: is your husband your photographer for moments like these? I need to train my hubby….;)
You are so sweet!! Thank you so much! And I agree, I love how I feel when I am pregnant, so that means a lot to me!! 🙂 And yes, my husband took this pictures and pretty much all of the pictures on my blog!! xo
Looks like a nice time. I’m wondering though – it’s OK to drink alcohol when you’re pregnant nowadays? I was told it was a no-no and I wouldn’t risk it, but maybe it’s a new thing now?
Hi Addison, good note. They still advise against heavy alcohol consumption while pregnant, but most doctors will say a glass of wine or champagne every once in a while while pregnant will not cause any harm. But from the looks of it, I bet they’re drinking sparkling cider (non-alcoholic) here. It’s a bit dark in color for champagne or sparkling wine.
Yes, you are right! It is sparking cider 🙂 Sorry for the confusion!! Thanks love!!
Hi Addison!! Sorry for the confusion, but no worries, it is not alcohol. It is sparkling cider 🙂 Thank you for the concern, I appreciate it anyway!! xo
Wow! You look AMAZING! And your hair! OMG! 😀
Greetings from Sweden. 🙂
Thank you so much Jessica!! I am so glad you love it 🙂
awe such a nice surprise, you look amazing Amber, those views are amazing, although but high for me:)
Thanks Katie!! You are so nice!! And it is high!! I think I have gotten used to being high up from living in the city but I know what you mean 🙂
I have the same dress! Wore it at about 26wks pregnant, it was very comfy & flattering. That said, I haven’t worn it since (now 34wks) as I’m not sure how much stretching it will do. I originally got it as my pregnancy splurge dress (it’s pricey shipping it to Aus these days), but I’ve since found I’ve got a couple more splurge items from that can be used after bubs arrival from HATCH during their sales. Hehe you have to feel nice when pregnant.
No way?! I love how it fits!! But I know what you mean, I may not be able to wear it as I am getting bigger and bigger 🙂 I agree!! It’s a good feeling!! xo
What an inspiring sunshine u are Amber, beautiful inside and outside !! Keep making us smile with ur posts
Warm greetings from Ukraine 🙂
You are too kind!! Thank you for making my day!! I am so happy you follow along from the Ukraine, how cool!! xo

What a perfect date! I never would have thought to rent an apartment for a night, but what could be more romantic? Especially with a little one 🙂 Beautiful view, and gorgeous dress! Also, I love that hairstyle on you. Do you wrap your hair around something to make it look so full? <3 it!
It was so nice, we loved it!! Haha and the little one 😉 Luckily he was fast asleep!! And thanks so much!! I wrapped the braid around the bun, but I think it’s my extensions that are adding that fullness to it! I am hoping to do a tutorial! xo
