the first cup with cream and sugar: after that black

I haven't posted a lot (okay, at all) lately; because I just haven't liked my outfits.  This one I liked.  And I think it shows in my adorable cuteness.  I can say that because lately I have been feeling less than adorable cute (not that any sort of modesty has stopped me before). But yes, being pregnant is annoying when you have to try on five things in the morning before you find one that fits.  Just because it fit last week, doesn't mean it's going to fit this week.

This grrs me.  But yeah, here I am contented with an outfit.  So here I am.  I bought this sweater at Gap for 3 dollars.  It's men's XL.  I like it.  A lot.  I love extra large tops.  Only now they don't really fit extra large anymore.  And sometimes I just look square in them. That's what you want to avoid most of all when you are pregnant: looking square.  Not square as in "uncool", but square as in the shape.  Yup, square.  I much prefer to be more of a triangle.  Or maybe a hexigon.

And hey!  Because I probably won't post tomorrow (given my track record as of late), I want to tell you: tomorrow is my son's second birthday!!!  So happy birthday Soren!!

Heart: Kimberellie

outfit total: $508.25 (yikes)

jeggings, jacob: $20

    And Kimberellie, I sympathize... stupid big clothes and clothes that dont fit and tummy that makes getting dressed a PAIN. But whatever, you still look FAB in your $500 outfit. ;)

  12. Preach it sister! I have been not loving a lot of my outfits lately... especially as my options are getting more and more limited! But then a friend dropped off some of her maternity clothes for me to borrow, and voila I am back in business.
