Yesterday was one of those days that you just can’t bring yourself to get on the internet. I needed a little break. I woke up- I sewed some stuffed animals for a Friends new baby boy and then I drove out to the hospital to go and visit them. I have to say sitting in the hospital room holding a brand new baby, talking with a friend about birth and life and just exciting things was really refreshing and totally enjoyable. Kev and I are so, so happy for our Friends. The baby is beautiful and the proud new parents are glowing. I also got to stop at the outlets for a bit and use a carters gift card I got for some adorable baby things. When I got home we had some friends come over for pizza, delicious salads and some games. I love game nights. Yesterday was a day that I am grateful for. Its always good to have days surrounded by good friends. Last night I was having some very uncomfortable contractions though. Kinda crazy. Kev rubbed my back for a long time, then I took a hot shower and relaxed on the couch and watched Rachel Zoe and ate a creamsicle. They died down eventually and off to sleep we went.
I really love my outfit in todays pictures but the photos and I were in a fight while we were taking them. I hate those days. Sometimes photo shoots go so easy (like 5 photos and everyone is a keeper) and sometimes like today they are so painful. Every picture is eh and it just gets worse and worse the longer you stay out there trying to take pictures. I had a few errands to run this morning so I woke up right after Kev left for work and got dressed. I have had this blouse for a while- its really flowy so it still fits good even though it’s not maternity. I love the ruffle around the collar. The skirt is not maternity either and if I was going to be out for a long time I would not have worn it. It doesn’t zip up the side anymore so I just pull one of my maternity tanks down over it to hold in place and cover it up. haha. oh the joys of pregnancy! I am hoping fall will come sooner if I just keep wearing outfits a little more inspired by fall than summer. Fingers crossed!
