Pregnancy Fashion Tip and Update

Hello lovelies, I want to share with you my newest and most favorite discovery. DRAWSTRING SHORTS!!! Now I realize there is nothing new about drawstring shorts, but I was at Target the other day and saw that they were selling them in about 10 different colors (all of which are super hot this spring/summer) and that they looked sort of lineny (not a word, I know). So I bought one pair, tried it on with dressy wedges and a cute blouse and I screamed “YES!!!” Why? Because I am challenging myself to not wear maternity clothes or sweats (out of doors) through this pregnancy and I have always categorized draw string anything as “sweats.” But nnnnooo mooree people! I am going to snatch up these shorts in a few colors and wear them to the beach, on a date, to the store and to church!  Because the material is not stretchy and the colors are so appealing they can be dressed up or down. (Big sigh of relief now that my normal shorts are leaving deep marks in my tummy…. 🙁 )

Blouse- Gift, Shorts- Target, Shoes- Naturalizer

And here is just a little update on my pregnancy:

I realize that I do not look very happy in the pictures above. I honestly don’t remember what I was thinking or if I was actually unhappy, but maybe I was thinking about this…..

I have peed my pants 3 times this week

1. When I made myself gag while brushing my teeth

2. When I got mad at Joe and exerted myself too much by throwing my daughters shoe at him

3. When I sneezed from this awful cold I am fighting

That’s it, that is my pregnancy update. And you are welcome. xoxo!

    HA! Laughed so hard. Do you think it goes away after said babies? After 4, this post *might* have made me pee a little too 🙂 You are looking so cute these days! My mom said she really liked your short cut. Can’t wait to see it shoulder length!

    I am still laughing…your honesty and sense of humor are so incredibly entertaining – and they give me yet one more reason to stop at two children and not push my luck with a third. Thanks for sharing, and for the smiles!
