Apples to Apples

Boy does time fly! It seemed like only a couple months ago that we went apple picking this last year, only Elz was only barely walking then. Now she's stomping through the orchard, tripping through the pumpkin patch and eating apples left and right. At 25 weeks, I feel more like 35 weeks and looking it too. I could barely last that day without huffing and puffing so I'm glad we can still get in our fall activities in before hubz will start having to roll me from one place to another. A lot of my maternity wear is re-purposed regular clothes that can be worn either prego or not - empire and swing tops and dresses, like this beautiful silk one I got from Yoox last year.

Next, pumpkin picking!

Over the Bump, across the Pond, and back again

Off shoulder cheesecloth dress: asos

I'm back from a much needed hiatus. In the past six months I found out I was pregnant, suffered through two months of debilitating morning sickness, only to ride it out while vacationing a month in the UK, and slowly getting life back in order as we prepare for bebe #deux.

Life has its twists and turns and this one has thrown us for a loop, as we weren't quite planning on another bebe coming so soon, thus delaying our expat plans to Europe. We even nixed a move down south. So for the time being, to alleviate yet another cold Minnesota winter, I've decided to freshen things up inside and flex my interior design skills. With all the aches and ailments that come with pregnancy (and this one is much much worse than the first time 'round), I'm happy to enjoy at least one of the fun parts of pregnancy - stylin' the bump. Stay tuned!
