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!


  1. Love maternity Monday! You look great! Stop saying your a whale!

    Also, congrats to your brother and sister in law!

  2. If I didn't have my wits about me, I wouldn't be able to help but remember a certain affliction you and French both suffered from after our trip to the beach in Rome. But I do, so I can, and won't bring it up.

    Instead, I'll just say that while I didn't burn the beer, I did forget it in the carboy for 6 months and it got a little potent. Maybe I'll share some.

  3. Haha! I remember that affliction well! I spent the whole evening with my feet propped up against the wall hoping and praying that somewhere under all that swelling my former legs still existed.

  4. HA! I think my ankles disappeared for a short while that day...
    Completely forgot about that!
    And are you referring to the pictures I took of you in a bathing suit? Because I love those pics and you are certainly NOT a whale.

    Congrats to your brother's family. And that being her fourth labor, I guess she is allowed to have a quick one, though I won't mention my envy.

    And I'm with you about second-hand shoes but those are gorgeous! Worth any strange foot fungus that may come with them ;) hehe
