The Blue Tunic


I didn't much to share this weekend besides getting an amazing facial but ain't no way I'm posting a pic of my bare face on here.  So please excuse the crappy Iphone pics but I LOVE this blouse!  It's a recent purchase from Express and on top of having the most vibrant blue color, it is super comfortable.  I'm a tunic phase of life and this little guy fits right in!


 There's Mia hanging out behind!

A Blessed Day


Lucas was baptized on Sunday in the same church my husband and I were married in and by the same priest that married us!  He was so well behaved but I doubted my little man would do so well.  I think I brought along three bottles, every blankie and pacifier I could find, and musical toys even though the mass was only an hour long.  I'm still nervous about being that mom with crying child.  He proved me way wrong though and mostly slept through the entire mass.

Lucas was also dressed in style!  When we got to my mom's house for lunch, we changed Lucas into a romper that my aunt/godmother had made for him and it was adorable!  For the actual baptism, he wore a christening gown that is about 60 years old.  My grandmother had it handmade in Spain for my uncles and my dad to wear for their baptisms.  After they wore the gown, I was the first of the grandkids to wear it.  I wore the gown as did my sisters and cousins.  Now, Lucas is the first of the great-grandkids to wear the gown. For being 60 years old and worn by so many babies, the gown was in excellent condition.  It was amazing to see my son wearing a gown that has so much history.  Thankfully, there were no accidents from Lucas.  I didn't want to be the first to literally christen the gown.

It was truly a special and blessed day.

Bright Dots


It was a drabby and rainy Saturday but I wasn't going to let that stop me from getting on the move.  Saturdays are usually my stay at home, no makeup or fuss kind of day, but this Saturday, I had plans to go to brunch with other preggo ladies.  It was fun swapping stories over breakfast especially because we are all so close in due dates.  

I copied this outfit from MK at Outfit Posts.  I initially tried to button up my cardigan but that was laughable.

Abstract Greens


I'm linking up today with the lovely Tara of Mix and Match Fashion for her What I Wore To Work linkup.  As I've mentioned before, I'm cycling through maternity clothes and realize that I have settled on basics.  Lately I've tried to still wear my pre-pregnancy clothes but as these photos plainly show, this poor Anthropologie cardi is struggling!  Oh well.  Small price to pay for a (fingers crossed) healthy baby boy :-)

Spaced Out


Pregnancy hormones are annoying.  I'm the first to recognize that I can be a world class monster biotch and the next second be super sweet (well, to an extent).  What has caught me off guard though is pregnancy brain. Whooooaaaa.  For example, on Monday, I was looking forward to watching OC Housewives on Bravo.  I got my juice ready on my night stand, positioned my Snoogle, but there was still 5 minutes left until the show started.  I decided to watch another channel until Housewives started.  The whole time I'm watching this other channel, in my head, I'm thinking how much I can't wait to watch the new OC Housewives.  I look at my clock and decide to click over to Bravo and the flipping show is over!  I completely spaced out.  What do I decide to do at this point?  Cry. Cry.  I cried.  I cried because I spaced out and missed Housewives.  This was a pointless example but just goes to show how crazy town my hormones and emotions are recently.  Can anyone relate??  Anyone??  Just lie and tell me yes...

Happy Valentine's Day!  I wore this outfit on Sunday and thought how Valentinesy it looked then I remembered that Valentine's Day was today!  Oops, pregnancy brain.  So I'll be wearing this again since only like two people saw me on Sunday.  Does anyone else do that?  

Today is extra special because, fingers crossed, we find out the baby's gender at our appointment this morning!!!!!!!!  I'm so excited I can barely stand it!  I've been reading online how some women drink Mountain Dew or something really sugary to make sure the baby is alert during the appointment.  I'm going to play it safe with some orange juice and hope for the best.  I have a feeling it's going to be a boy but will be very happy either way!

Bows, Bows, Bows


When I think of yellow and black together, I think of a bumblebee and not in a good way.  Yet, I always gravitate between pairing the two colors together and it isn't until I've been in the outfit for a whole workday that I think, "man, I look like a bumblebee."  Maybe I'll remember to pair yellow with something different and that's a big maybe seen as though these days I've been shampooing my hair three times in a row because I forget whether or not I've washed it or not.  Oy vey...

Devil in Me

I'm trying my best to channel this outfit from the movie "Devil Wears Prada."  That is one movie that I could watch over and over and over again.  One of my husband's pet peeves is that I can watch movies over and over again without getting sick of them.  But who can resist not watching films like Legally Blonde, Devil Wears Prada, Bridget Jones, and 500 Days of Summer three times in one day?  Am I right or am I right?

Over the Bump


I'm trying to be creative and expand my closet without purchasing new items.  In an effort to do so, the only way to wear this skirt now is to zip it up over the bump.  At first, I thought I was a genius but after an hour sitting at work, I remembered the magic of maternity bottoms.  Ahhhh maternity bands!

Flirty and Girly


Pink stripes and leopard together?  I'll go with it for now.  I'm not very adventurous when it comes to pattern mixing and tend to stick more to the matching side of things but every once in awhile I feel spontaneous.  For some, this mixing may seem bland but for me, less is more.

Owls in Florida


I've talked about my owl obsession here but now I think I'm just loving all things with actual animal images on them.  I find this animal trend so whimsical and fun that I'm happy I spotted this sweater at Old Navy for a reasonable price.  With trends, I don't like to spend too much and this sweater was right up my alley.  Anyone else loving this animal trend?

Village Nut


I start getting a little nutty by Friday because usually during the week is go go go but Fridays...oh Fridays.  I begin to unravel and think of all the things I need to finish before the weekend.  I'm just lucky I have amazing co-workers (husband included) that keep me sane :-)  Have a great weekend!

Autumn Grains


Two days in a row of wearing a bow top but I can't help it, bows are my weakness.  Brown isn't really a color I like wearing too much but whenever I think of this time of year, browns and greens always come to mind.  This skirt runs on the short side, for me anyways, so tights were necessary.

Vote Walk


It's Election Day and although I will not preach, judge, etc about the elections, I do encourage those of you who can vote to do so.  How cute is this video about the little girl tired of "Bronco Bama" and Mitt Romney?!

Leopard Greens


One of my best friends and her family are coming to stay with us this weekend for the Florida v. Missouri game.  I couldn't be more excited to see her little princess!  Here's to a great weekend and that the Gators don't disappoint me ;-)

Candy Aftermath


I may or may not have taken a stash of candy from my mom's house.  I like to think of it as saving those little kids from cavities.  No matter how old I get, Halloween is always an excuse for me to eat as much candy as I can the whole night long.  It's so worth the guilt I feel the next day and the urge to almost want to spend the whole day at the gym.  Almost.
