on a completely unrelated note, this rug is a ridiculously good price at crate & barrel online and it is taking every OUNCE of self-control I have not to buy it and have it shipped to my parents (because shipping to HI would be disgusting, I'm sure) to wait for us to move back in a year.
I haven't had a new piece of clothing/shoes/accessory to wear since September. It was my choice- I have used my personal monthly budget to buy my Michael Kors watch to commemorate Liam's pregnancy (as talked about here) and then the rest to put toward my Christmas bed set (as talked about here). So it has been worth it. And when I'm pregnant I never spend money on clothes to wear because 1)it's not going to fit in a week and 2)it doesn't look great. But that means by now- the final 7 week stretch- I am tired of wearing the pathetic remnants in my closet that still fit the belly.
I have one pair of jeans, one pair of jean shorts, 2 above-the-knee skirts, 2 long skirts, black leggings, 2 cardigans, 1 sweatshirt, 2 flannel button-ups, and 5 different colors of maternity tank tops. That is it. I knew my daily closet selection seemed pathetic but seeing it in writing makes me sigh. (Yes, this is why you haven't seen many "outfit pictures" lately.)
In December, Jerry and I donate our monthly personal spending money to the general budget since there are gifts to buy, gifts we'll receive, and extra holiday expenses. So, finally, in January I can buy things again. And the baby bump will be gone. Oh, won't that will be lovely.
Until then, if you see me walking around in the same clothes that you saw me in last week, don't say a word. "Poking" a preggo is hazardous to your health.
