    I’m so happy for you and El Hub!!!! (and of course, Tabs too ;))
    I remember reading your blogpost about wanting kids but thinking it was too late, and I was hoping you wouldn’t get discouraged and you’d be able to get pregnant. And now you are!
    Congratulations and all the happiness to you three (almost 4!!!)!

  16. Jisu Kim says:

    Congratulations !!!! I am so excited for you !

  17. jeri selinger says:

    congrats….just make sure Tabs knows he’s still your baby.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jeri,

      Definitely. I’ve bookmarked a section in my baby book on how to greet your pet when you come home from the hospital (hand the baby to someone else, and greet kitty with both hands). Tabs will always be my “oldest” baby.

  18. Amber says:

    Congratulations Karen!!! I’m so thrilled for you! I wish you a safe & healthy pregnancy!

  19. Heidi says:

    Oh, what wonderful news to come back to! I just got back from spending several months in the hospital (long story, but I’m on the mend finally), and this is just the best! Congrats to you, El Hubs, and Tabs!

  20. Sara says:

    Congratulations Karen! I am so incredibly happy for you! I nearly burst into tears. I’ve been following you since the very beginning.
    I actually just found out last week that I’m pregnant- I’m due in May! ๐Ÿ˜

    • Karen says:

      Oh wow, Sara, congrats to you and your family! We’ll have to trade notes. My first trimester was rough…the struggle is so real. LOL!

      • Sara says:

        Thanks! It’s my first too:) I’ve been feeling ok just reallyyyy tired but I’m still so early…too early to tell anyone (except for you that is!) So very excited! Are you going to be doing weekly updates? I hope so! Would love to read all about your experience. Congratulations again so very happy for you!

  21. Jane says:

    As we say on the East Coast, Mazal Tov! That is such great news. I had my son in March and they’re great babies. He’s 14 now but is still my baby.

  22. Kristy says:

    AHHHHH! I’m so happy for you, Karen! I remember reading that you were worried about potential motherhood on the blog, so when I saw the title of the post I knew what the announcement was going to be. May you have a healthy pregnancy, and thank you for sharing this with us!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kristy! I remember that post too. I really didn’t expect this to happen and am so happy that it finally did. Thank you for the well wishes. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope this is a healthy pregnancy too (so far, so good!).

  23. Tiffany says:

    For some reason, reading one of your most recent posts, I just had a feeling that you might be! Weird! Congratulations. So excited and happy for you!

    • Karen says:

      Aww, you’re so observant, Tiffany! Was it one of the many posts about weird food? LOL!

      • Tiffany says:

        Actually, it was the 10-minute smoky eye! I just saw one of the pictures and thought, “She looks absolutely glowing!” I mean, you’re normally glowing and gorgeous anyway, don’t get me wrong, but something clicked and I thought, wait a minute!

  24. Radhika says:

    Congratulations and huggggs Karen! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Tulipthecat says:

    OMG!!! Congratulations Karen!!! I wish you all the best! I’m sure Tabs will love having a little sister to play with!

    • Karen says:

      Aww, thank you! Although I think he’ll look at her more as his kitten, LOL! His very loud, hairless kitten! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Tulipthecat says:

        Tulip doesn’t mind kids. My nieces and nephew pet and chase her. She also seems to know when they are still babies. My niece who is almost 2 loves to pull her tail and and lay on her and she doesn’t seem to mind. One time I saw her trying to ride Tulip like she’s a horse.

  26. Rosie says:

    Congratulations, Karen! I’m so happy for you, El Hubs, and Tabs!

  27. Sunny says:

    OMG OMG OMG congrats, Karen!!! I am SO SO happy for you! Can’t wait to meet your precious little girl! <3

    Tabs will probably be wondering why the new "kitten" doesn't have to learn how to use the box LOL

    • Karen says:

      Hi Sunny! So funny, El Hub and I were joking about that! Tabs is gonna be like, “Why is this cat so stinky?! What happened to her fur?” LOL

      Your niece can’t wait to meet you!

  28. Jenna N. says:

    So happy for you Karen! Congratulations!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jenna!

      Thank you! How’s legal life going these days?

      • Jenna N. says:

        It’s going great! Loving being a lawyer. And I’m getting married in a month! October 10th. Currently on the hunt for the perfect long lasting lip color. ๐Ÿ™‚ congrats again! Your little one is going to be so sweet

        • Karen says:

          CONGRATS, JENNA! I’m so happy for you! Send me pics of your makeup on your wedding day. I wanna see!

        • Jenna N. says:

          Embarrassed to admit that I’m actually hiring someone else to do it! I’m too intimidated by the idea of applying fake eyelashes and trying to apply my eyeliner straight while my nerves are through the roof! The makeup artist has much better skills than me anyway! I just need to find a lipstick because her selections sucked ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Sam says:

    Congrats!<3 Best wishes ๐Ÿ™‚ so happy for you<3

  30. Kuz says:

    Congratulations to you and El Hub, Karen! And Tabs, too! This is such wonderful news and I’m so very excited for you and Baby MBB! Sending hugs and (early) baby cuddles from Canada!


  31. Holly says:

    YAY!! So so very happy for you & El Hubs & Tabs! I have 2 family members (sister-in-law & cousin) due in March as well, so now I’m even more excited for spring! Sending good & happy thoughts & prayers for you & baby’s health. <3

  32. Celia says:

    Congratulations!!!!! I’m sure she’ll be your super chic partner in makeup adventures ๐Ÿ˜‰

  33. Alli says:

    I am so so happy for you! I am also expecting a bundle of joy…a baby boy in January 2016! You did a post/poll a few weeks ago about breaking out and I was like yes! I’m breaking out because I’m preggo, and it turns out, so were you! So beyond happy for you and your growing family:)

    • Karen says:

      Congrats, Alli! I hope that things have been smooth sailing for ya! My first trimester was rough but I’m glad to have made it through it. Can’t wait to hear about your baby boy in January!

  34. XO, Noelle says:

    That’s amazing news! Congrats! ๐Ÿ™‚

  35. Vanessa says:

    My heart is so full for you! I remember a few years ago that you noted in one of your posts that you wished you had tried for kids earlier, so seeing this made me feel incredibly happy for you! You are going to be an amazing mom, and will be surrounded by so much love in this community! Sending only the best thoughts to you, your hub, and that sweet little girl that you’re bringing into this world!


    • Karen says:

      Thank you Vanessa! I remember that post and how sad I felt when I wrote it. I’m so happy that this happened. It was such a wonderful surprise.

      Sending good vibes right back ‘atcha. ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. Katalin says:

    OMG!!! Karen, Congratulations for you guys!!
    Now you have to re-do the cat logo at the bottom of your website, as a tiny baby girl is pulling on Tabby’s tail.. Perhaps riding to Tabby as she is arriving to our new family! Yay!! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I wish your family the best and for many more joyful moments to follow!!! <3

  37. Mandy says:

    Congratulations Karen! Wishing you and your family all the best!

  38. Rhia says:

    I love when I guess correctly. Congrats, Karen! I see a future makeup and beauty blogger in the making!

  39. Elena says:

    Congrats Karen!!!! How exciting! I’m so happy for you!!! Woohoo! Here’s to a happy healthy pregnancy! Kids aren’t my thing but I am so happy for you because I remember reading posts about how you wanted a child. Very exciting!

    Have you started thinking of a name for her??

    • Karen says:

      Thanks Elena! We haven’t started thinking of names yet. I figure she’ll let me know when I meet her in person. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Elena says:

        So excited again for you Karen! The name will come! Haha, I wonder what Tabs will think! My parents have a new kitten (I know, not the same as a kid) and our cat Mario, who is king of the household, is apparently rather displeased

        I just watched your announcement video (I was at work earlier but saw your post on Instagram)…Don’t worry if your daughter ends up being a tomboy (I was such a tomboy growing up…now I have found the perfect balance between being a makeup addicted girly girl and a tomboy). The bright side was, I saved my parents a lot of money presumably because I wasn’t super big into fashion or makeup until much later! LOL!

  45. Ruchita says:

    Oh Karen, I am so so happy for you! I got a bit teary eyed hearing your news, but in a good way. Wishing you all the best and praying for a smooth pregnancy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ruchita (and kitties!), Aww, I got a little teary and emotional too when I filmed this. I tried not to cry! Thank you for the well wishes, my daughter and I will take them. ๐Ÿ™‚

  46. Ginger says:

  57. Kate & Zena says:

    I just had to come by (I know I posted on your Facebook all ready!) and say I am so happy for you! I know Tabs isn’t probably all THAT thrilled, but he’ll warm up to her! If you have a P.O. Box for me to send a card or even a gift (I may not LIKE babies, but I do like shopping for a gift!), let me know!

    But, seriously, I love sending cards.

    Enjoy ur pregnancy!

  64. Christine says:

    Pagbati/Congratulations are in order!! How nice of you to post a “moving/talking you” to share your wonderful news!

    If Tabs has lots of high up, safe spaces just for her (open book shelf, fireplace mantel, etc.), she’ll be just fine with her younger sister. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Looking forward to seeing the new family member in March!


  65. Shelby says:

    Congratulations to you, El Hub, and Tabs! When I saw the heading for this post I thought “oh girl, you pregnant!” I’m so excited to be an invisible internet auntie! ๐Ÿ˜€
    You can set aside that highlighter, because now you’ll have that natural glow! (Well… maybe just a little highlighter… and some contour… ah, the life of a makeup addict)

  70. Jennifer says:


    I’m so, so, so happy and excited for you and El Hubs. This is the best news. I was holding my breath when I saw your Facebook post. I was like, please, please, please let it be a baby announcement ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was wondering if something was up when you mentioned having a stomach bug a few weeks ago. It sounded like morning sickness to me, which I had all the live long day, by the way.

    Congratulations!!!! You’re going to love being a mom, even if she does end up a tomboy. She’ll have friends, right? They’ll be dying to come over and play makeup ๐Ÿ™‚

    p.s. We just found out my niece is due in March with her first baby.

    So psyched for you guys. And Tabs, is he okay with becoming an uncle?

    • Karen says:

      Aww, thanks my darling! I’m very happy too. ๐Ÿ™‚

      LOL, what was it that tipped you off? The fact that I fell asleep at the Cheesecake Factory in the middle of the day with a french fry in my mouth?! LOLOL!

      Oh, and I’m pretty sure Tabs is going to think of her as his kitten. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  71. Kwmechelle says:

    Ok, I’ll say it again. TOTALLY having an inner ugly cry moment right now. Worth every bit of ruining my They’re Real mascara for. You couldn’t have ended my day better if you tried. Sending you & uncle Tabs virtual hugs. I’m thinking of a baby basket complete with pink bows, tutus, lace booties, & pink blush. What say you? Too much? At least I left out the pink lippie. I can save that until she’s 3! Best. News. EVER!!! Mommy-hood looks good on you already ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Karen says:

      Thank you my sweet friend! And you can totally add the pink lippie in. Gotta start ’em early!

      • Kwmechelle says:

        Then that settles it. The pink lippie stays. Reading through the comments, it’s pretty clear that you’ve made this a special moment for all of us. Thank you for sharing something so sweet, personal, & private with your virtual family. Time to stock up on Kleenex. Pretty sure I’m gonna have many more happy, ugly cry moment as we embark on this journey with you. As for the lippie, it’s GOT TO BE from Chanel. Or Tom Ford. Because, you know, that’s how we roll. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Let the count down begin. Yippee!!!!!

    BTW, when my daughter was a toddler and in elementary school she was a complete and total tomboy. She even wanted to wear boy’s clothes at times. Now she’s a dress wearing, makeup loving college grad. She worries that people might judge her to be less intelligent because she does love fashion and makeup.
    More than anything else I’ve done in my life, being a parent was the most challenging and most rewarding job. Wishing you all the joys and rewards of being a parent.

    So thrilled for you Karen! Novato has changed so much since I was little girl growing up there. Yes, back in the last century when we came from Germany it was a one stoplight town! (Grant Ave and what is now Redwood Blvd, which used to be Highway 101 before the bypass.) One movie theater (Grant Ave), one Hardware store (Pini’s on Grant Ave then), and city hall was the Presbyterian Church. Where you live was open space–the only thing down your way was HAFB which was very active back in the days of the Viet Nam War. I lived out by Atherton Ave (wrong side of the tracks literally and figuratively) and we’d be awoken many a night by an Air Force Scramble (I don’t know what they call it) where all the pilots on call run to the planes and take off in a big hurry. LOUD! Will Baby (Call her Tabitha after Tabs?) be born at Sutter in Novato or Kaiser in San Rafael? Hope this is an easy pregnancy for you! So happy for you and El Hub! –Jen

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Jen! How long did you live in Novato? Do you still have family here?

I hope you’re having an easy and joyful pregnancy (I loved been pregnant with all my kiddos)! Will be checking back here more often to see how you and baby are doing!

    I’m so late to the party but I just had to say congratulations!!!!! I remember, I guess it was months ago, when you shared that you thought you were pregnant but then found out you weren’t and how disappointed you were. My heart was so sad for you. I’ve thought about that since then, hoping only the best for you! And now that you are prego I am so happy for you!!!!!! Best wishes!!!!

    Hey Karen, late seeing this post as I’m WAY behind on my blog reading (I have a 7 month old girl who keeps me MAJORLY busy, prepare yourself lol), but a ridiculously HUGE congrats! I’ve been reading your blog for years and years and you’ve mentioned having a child has been something that’s been on your mind in various ways at various times, so I’m just so pleased it’s gone this way for you. I can’t even tell you how much I love being a mother so every time someone else gets this chance I’m just over the moon for them! And re: beauty & little girls, I’ve been starting her early, taking her on regular trips to Sephora and letting her watch mom doing her makeup all the time so I’M SETTING THE TONE EARLY mwahahaha. Sending you the absolute best of luck wishes!!!
