Last week, as I was changing out of work clothes into more fun clothes, I realized that I was pants-less. As in, all my pants are just snug enough to leave a red mark on my waist/hips. This was no good for two reasons; first of all, it kind of hurt after a while, and secondly it only added to my already exaggerated need to visit the ladies' room. So, on Saturday between my waitressing & hostessing shifts, I went a little bananas at Motherhood Maternity. Our store location is about the size of a nursery, appropriately I guess, but I managed to stay in there for over an hour trying on anything that caught my eye & figuring out more about nursing bras & nipple leakage pads (just typing that is gross!).
I walked out with an adorable pink ruffle-front blouse with small black polka dots, a warm purple & gray print dress, agreen dress I probably dropped too much $$ on (pictured), pregnancy black opaque tights, and a black cardigan. It was so much fun to try on clothes that fit my changing body so much. There was even this fake bump in the dressing room, I guess so you can predict how these pants will fit when you're ginormous, but let me tell you it was nothing like a real bump. It was kind of triangular, and though I might be new to all this preggo stuff I know baby bumps are not triangular. I finished off my shopping trip at Target, where I got some black pants on sale and a regular sundress that I love and that should fit when I'm pretty pregnant. Either way it's super cute.
Amos and I went to this goofy store last night called Whimsadoodles or something equally sugar-coated. It was fun looking at baby stuff with him; mostly I've been shopping alone, because of his crazy work schedule. We got another adorable rattle and a huge, bright turquoise Sock Monkey that I kind of want for myself. This kid isn't even fully formed but super spoiled 😉
