Well here I am at 27 weeks. I can barely believe it. Almost in my third trimester.

I just LOVE these turquoise maternity jeans from GAP they're so comfortable and just plain awesome!

26 Weeks

So nothing really "important" was going on this week so I thought I'd challenge myself...I'll go ahead and let you know I failed. I thought that I would try and take pictures all this week of my "outfits" and that I would try to wear non maternity clothes this week as an example of making your clothes work...well I didn't make it...I got lazy and simple didn't want out this might be TMI...shave my legs. Here's what I wore

This is a regular dress from Old Navy. I absolutely LOVE it and I don't think it's because I was able to still fit in to a MEDIUM!!!

Another Old Navy Dress...Old Navy is a great STAPLE for maternity clothes that are not maternity!
Old Navy Dress, Old Navy Cardigan, Old Navy Belt...note a theme
Target cardigan, Old Navy tank, Gap MATERNITY green pants (this was the first day of failure)

Followed up by the second day of failure...Old Navy MATERNITY tank and GAP white MATERNITY pants

I have to admit that even though not much happened this week, I'm so excited for the weekend. My parents are coming in town to help "start" to get Caroline's bedroom together...the bedframe, new chandelier and bedding will all arrive when they do at some point tonight. 

The nursery is starting to take shape as well. My parents are bringing the dresser/changing table that I had painted/lacquered as well as this fabulous lucite side table that will be THE perfect spot for my wine while I spend some good quality hours back in the rocking chair. My Dad will also be hanging the chandelier for the nursery.

Also, on Saturday some painters are coming by to give an estimate about painting Caroline's big girl room. So hopefully they'll be able to get that done before the arrival of her headboard and lacquered dresser.

So there will be lots of room updates to come next week.

Also coming next week is the 4D ultrasound and all the family that is coming in for that...lots of stories to come

25 Weeks

Well this week has been a milestone. Not a pregnancy one but a milestone in my own adult I mailed in my bar card along with my request for inactive status...It was a little bit more painful than I imagined...I mean that gold card cost me and continues to cost me (and Kyle) quite a pretty penny. Right when the panic attack set in I quickly realized what I was trading it in for...once that realization hit I laughed to myself and thought, Hell they can keep it if they want to...I'm most definitely on to bigger and better things!!!

24 weeks and a HUGE announcement

So heres another picture of the bump in my work restroom (I know I know it's getting a little ridiculous). I'm getting rather big and so are the girls (DD)!! Went to the doctor and got weighed and I'm up to about 15 pounds total weight gain but I think I could shave at least 1-2 pounds off that since it was a late afternoon appointment...duh one can use pregnancy math when calculating her weight's a privilege earned during pregnancy.

So on to the big announcement because the 15 pound weight gain although BIG is not the HUGE announcement. Today I told my boss that I would not be returning to work after the baby is born. I was so nervous and I still am about what the future will hold but I'm really excited for this new phase in my life. I know it will be the absolute HARDEST thing that I'll do in my life but I'm so ready for it. Spending at best 1 1/2 hours with C a night simply wasn't enough. I'm also blessed that I have such an amazing husband that works so hard to make this move to STAY AT HOME MOM possible.

Check back in on my after the adrenalin wears off and see if I'm still this excited. Stick around and check out the shenanigans we get ourselves and my expanding brood.

23 Weeks

So I realize that most of my pictures occur in various bathrooms (be it at work or home) but that's where I find the largest mirrors.

This week I had my dreaded glucose testing. Just hate that stuff! Hopefully I won't have to worry about that again.

Here are a few pictures of me in different outfits this week. Obviously I have a thing for green but watch out I've got some turquoise skinny pants/jeans heading my way that I couldn't be more excited about.

I hope that everyone has a fantastic Easter and is careful if they're traveling.
