Lisa, my adorable pregnant buddy, tagged me! Thanks for giving me something to do this morning. :)

  • Post these rules to your blog.
  • Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names.

My Joys:

  1. Being in a new, clean, and freshly-decorated apartment (finally!)
  2. Spending a day inside, watching movies and eating junk food with my Justin.
  3. Minimal stress/drama with the in-laws. That would be just lovely.

My Fears:

  1. Bunions. Seriously!
  2. Spiders of any sort.
  3. Never getting my body/cuteness back after the baby.

My Goals:

  1. Read my Bible every day
  2. Cook 3-4 meals a week (so far, so good)
  3. TRY not to be so negative

My Current Obsessions/Collections:

  1. Umm, my growing baby, maybe? Kind of obsessed.
  2. Yard sales!
  3. Google Reader. Can’t. Get. Enough.

Random Surprising Facts About Me:

  1. I’m extra gassy these days, which my mom/Justin/random acquaintances say is not very Mrs. Priss-like.
  2. I don’t know if this is very surprising, but I have a serious case of road rage. I accidentally took it outside of my car the other night, and yelled at a guy who was standing in my way. How rude am I? I blame hormones.
  3. I absolutely HATE grape-flavored anything. GAG.

The Look for Less – Katherine Heigl

I love this girl! Usually, I automatically despise any woman that my husband finds attractive… but is it wrong that I agree for once? His whole Uma Thurman phase drove me insane. I don’t get it. Anyway, Katherine Heigl is always so put together, has that lovable, all-American thing going on, and just happens makes some pretty hilarious movies. Knocked Up, hello? One of my favorites.

This look was so inspiring to me. The yellow jacket is what drew my attention at first — the whole kimono thing is really adorable. It takes a confident woman to pull off that color!

So here’s what I came up with using the ever-fabulous Polyvore. If you guys haven’t checked that site out yet, pop on over there soon. It’s so fun and addicting. It’s like playing with paper dolls… without… the dolls. I don’t know. It’s just fun. :)

  • Scrunchie Skinny Jean – Wet Seal: $29.50
  • Three Tier Tank Top – Wet Seal: $9.99
  • Hoodie Cape Jacket – Forever 21: $27.80
  • Pearl Buckle Peep Toe Heel – Go Jane: $16.99
  • Large Hobo Bag – Target: $29.99
  • Gold Twist Bracelet – Bees: $19.80

I could have done better, I suppose… but go ahead and try to beat my prices!

Have a great weekend, everyone! Love!

13 Weeks

Another awkward facial expression (how depressed do I look? I promise I’m a happy person!), ginormous boobies and an almost-13-week baby bump for your enjoyment. Or maybe just for mine… that’s cool too.

Anyone have stylish/affordable maternity outfit suggestions? My wardrobe is dwindling… I can’t fit into my small-mediums anymore!! :(


I was just told that my cheeks are looking chubbier than normal.  Thanks, lady.

I Wish I May, I Wish I Might…

Lately, with work being somewhat slow, I’ve had a lot of time to catch up on my Google Reader and do a substantial amount of web surfing. I’ve developed quite a list of wants/needs (let’s be honest here, they’re mostly wants), and decided to share a few. Doesn’t everyone do this from time-to-time? :)

Wish List – 5.19.08

  • Sex and the City – The Complete Series — I know, I know, but I’m allowed a guilty pleasure (when I even get to watch it… Justin hates SJP for some unknown reason). Thanks to the adorable Miss Jamie over at Oh! How Lovely! for reminding me how badly I wanted this… and for making me extremely jealous that she found it for so cheap! :)

  • I want to jump on the mineral makeup bandwagon and start using i.d. bareMinerals foundation. It’s received rave reviews from those of my friends who have used it. What do you think? Is it worth the little splurge?

  • Yeah, I’m a bit late on this, but Dooney & Bourke’s Giraffe Large Sac makes me drool anytime I see it (it is usually being toted by undeserving 17-year-olds without jobs, might I add). It’s big, it’s leather, and it’s animal print… what more could I want?!
  • To grow a healthy baby. That means no more fast/junk food for this girl. I stocked up on fruits, veggies, and whole grains yesterday, so I have no excuse! This is killing two birds with one stone, essentially — in growing a healthy baby, I’m avoiding growing an unhealthy extra chin. Win-Win(-Win if you watch the Office).

  • Speaking of… is Pam and Jim’s engagement too much to ask? COME ON!
  • To someday have a laundry room as sweet and girlie as Talia’s. Loving it! This lovely little mama is so inspiring. Check out her blog!
  • Take up sewing, as I originally planned to do 3 months ago. Alyssa’s super cute apron just kills me! I need to try my hand at craftiness.
  • To be more domestic! This is a priority, my friends, as I have slacked on cooking and cleaning the past… well, my entire marriage. With moving into a new apartment (tonight, woohoo!), I have made a goal to make a home-cooked meal for my Justin at least 4 times a week and not let laundry pile up to the ceiling (I hate doing laundry).

Can I get an amen?
