Sunday Stripes

Nothing much to report here...just, you know, FREAKING OUT that we are now less than four weeks away from baby's due date. Sitting in a 7-hour intensive birth class yesterday didn't do much in the way of pacifying the psyche...

This morning we had a plethora of errands to run, so we decided to power up at Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen before facing the insanity one knows as Trader Joe's on a weekend. 

I'm wearing my new Frye boots that I purchased at Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. I've kept the catalog at my nightstand for weeks, and most nights before bed I would sneak a peek at these boots. It had been months since I had bought myself anything new, and I was counting the days until I could buy these! They are the most comfortable boots ever; it's all I can do not to sleep in them! The dress was one of my first maternity purchases; I'm surprised I haven't posted it before now. It's very comfy and I feel like I've worn it a thousand times, but I really didn't want to throw down too much cash on my maternity wardrobe

Anyhow, hope you all had a nice weekend!! 

One last note, I wanted to give a quick shout out and thank you to Teal of Expecting Chic, who recently posted on her wonderfully cute & candid blog a snapshot of a few pregnant bloggers, including moi! Check out her site for a great style & parenting blog!

Tahoe & T- 6 weeks!

Why is it that 6 weeks away sounds so much scarier than 7 weeks away? I can't figure it out either. But this past Friday was 6 weeks from my due date... YIKES! 

Aaron and I took a 5-day trip to Lake Tahoe to experience  some of what you folks who don't live in the Bay Area call "summer." What a phenomenon! Sun, heat, bathing suits, sandy feet... glorious! Not to mention getting away from work for a few days to spend some quality time with each other before you-know-who arrives and demands all of our attention. Of course, I absolutely cannot wait for that day, but in the meantime, it was nice to have some 1 on 1 time with the hubs. 

I had high aspirations of making this post a montage of outfits from the weekend, but let me tell you, this is the only outfit that should be seen! For any of you who believe I take the time to put myself together every day, thank you for your faith in me, but rest assured--most days I am tired and a wee bit raggedy. I did clean myself up Thursday night for a date night (dinner & a comedy show). Never underestimate the ease and comfort of a maxi dress and a belt when pregnant!

Speaking of moms and babies... so cute! I couldn't help myself.

Dress: Loveapella (purchased off HauteLook)
Shoes: Enzo Angiolini (these gladiators are ancient and stretched out and uncomfortable...but I can't part with them)
Bag: Big Buddha
