Before I start, I’d like to throw out a big fat congrats to my dearest Paloma. Today she received the best handbag she will ever own. I realize this is a bold statement, but I own the same bag (and may have pressured her into buying it), and it is indeed the best handbag ever. And I’ve been lugging my Madewell Transport Tote around now for over 6 months… so the honeymoon period is over and I’m still head over heels in love.
So here, here Paloma. Here’s to a lifetime of love with your new tote. Let me know where y’all are registered 😉
Today we had our monthly baby checkup and the little guy is growing perfectly! But lately I’m starting to feel like I’m growing too much. I’m guessing “feeling huge” is a pretty normal pregnancy feeling, and I’m trying my best to not let the number on the scale freak me out too much. But to be quite frank, as those digits start to creep to numbers I’ve never seen before, it’s a struggle.
My doctor says my weight gain is right on track, and my husband keeps reminding me that “gaining weight” is what I’m supposed to be doing. And shit, I’m just gonna gain more, so I guess I need to get over this scale-shock sooner than later. Or else I’m gonna drive myself (and my hubs) bonkers.
My outfit today was pretty last minute, I think it works. But I also think I need a new long black boyfriend cardigan. You can’t tell so much in the pix but this one appears to be on it’s last leg. It’s lived a long and well-worn life, and is starting to show signs of age (pilling, weird stretching, and a couple holes).
Bumpdate: 22 weeks and HOLY MOLY he’s a spaghetti squash! But I think that has to be a smaller sized one, cause those things can be HUGE. Actually maybe, he’s like a smallish-medium spaghetti squash… which is the size I would buy to make my famous spaghetti squash pad thai!
