Maternity Monday

Remember how in my last post I mentioned that I have recently joined the whale species? Well, I am here to prove that I really have, please refer to exhibits 1 and 2 below.

Exhibit 1: Me, 34 weeks pregnant.

Shirt: TJ Maxx, non-maternity
Skirt: Homemade
Shoes: Thrifted, usually not a fan of second hand shoes (kinda grosses me out), but these were    barely worn Steve Maddens that were $5!
Bracelet: Vintage, wore it for my wedding

Exhibit 2: Whale on a swing

Shirt: Old Navy Maternity
Shorts: TJ Maxx, non-maternity altered by me to be maternity
Shoes: Target years ago
Child too young to be on a real swing: Caleb

Exhibit 3 & 4: Me, about 30 weeks pregnant, at the beginning of my whale-hood.

Had to show the frontal view because it shows the fact that this skirt has pockets!

Shirt: Target Maternity
Skirt: Thrifted, altered by me
Shoes: Can't remember
Necklace: Homemade
Really terrible face I should have cropped out of photo: Homemade

Be thankful I spared you (actually mainly myself) the swimsuit pictures, which do exist despite my best efforts. All in all though I don't make a terrible looking whale right?

In other news, after 50 minutes of labor (yes you read that right, 50 minutes) my sister-in-law gave birth to a healthy baby boy today. That is boy number 4 for my brother and sister-in-law, and
grandson number 5 for my parents. Will my little mystery baby break the boy streak? Can't wait to find out!

Have a good week!

The Most Terriblest Blogger in the Whole Wide World

     Yep that's me! And yes I do know that terriblest is not a word, however it was suited to my purposes here so I went for it.

     Anyways, this is the post in which I apologize profusely for my silence on the internet, shower you with lame excuses, beg for your forgiveness, and finally, make empty promises I fully intend to keep but am actually highly likely to renege on. Therefore,  I give you permission to go waste your time elsewhere, beginning here, because you probably get the picture at this point.

     Yes, I realize that I have not posted since early June. No, I am not dead or dying from a terrible disease (ask Mariana or French they have both seen me alive and well in the last month), so I really have no excuse other than laziness/pregnancy for my recent blog hiatus. So all I can say is a weak "sorry that I have not been better at keeping y'all updated, please forgive me for my lackadaisical behavior."

     During my hiatus there were several events which I will be doing separate posts on later-this is where the hopefully not empty promises part comes in.

1) Caleb turned 1!
2) I quit my job-well almost, I still try to work about 10 hours a week
3) We went to Spain for my brother's wedding-AMAZING
4) Caleb learnt to walk
5) Caleb finally decided to grow fangs-not fun for a while there
6) I have officially joined the species known as whale

Stay tuned,
