You guys KNOW I am not a fashion blogger. I’m definitely NOT a pregnancy fashion blogger either. I finally wore a hole in the inner thigh of my favorite yoga pants. They were brown. They were ugly. And I didn’t care. I still don’t. I WILL wear them around the house until this baby decides to vacate. Either way, I am enjoying my morning ALONE time that won’t be so ALONE once she arrives in all her infant glory.
And during this alone time, while Q spent some time reading, I perused my fashion catalogues. Somehow, in some way, my name OR current resident, got on a BUNCH of mailing lists. It’s awesome. Honestly, I don’t spend a lot of money of clothing. IF I spend $ it’s normally for workout gear…until recently where I dropped BIG BUCKS at Lululemon. It wasn’t by choice, it just happened. I will have to tell you about that ANOTHER day. Fashion is ONE area where Q and I differ.
Q ALWAYS dresses nice. Always. He got best dressed on the Hill when we worked in DC. He’s gotten best dressed here in Colorado. He looks sharp in a suit. This man knows fashion, and he’s not gay. CLEARLY. (Hello BABY BUMP!) Oh, and our gym says he is among the top 5 fittest male members. (Meanwhile when we workout together I am among the BIGGEST belly group! Which I like because Sooner is going to be Ahmayzaing!) I digress…sorry…the point is when you are dressed well and it doesn’t have to be NEW or EXPENSIVE in order to be, you command a certain level of respect. People treat you better, you feel better… There is a reason why a GREAT “diet” tip is to GET UP AND DO YOUR HAIR AND WEAR JEANS.
The point is…I want to do better. I’m not talking about now, I mean baby is so low that my pants are lucky to stay UP and ON! I’m 40 + weeks pregnant, I’m allowing myself a little bit of frumpy, barefoot and pregnant look. I used to judge women like me when I was like 18, OH HOW THINGS CHANGE. Heh. And when Sooner is here, have mercy I will be rolling out of bed lucky if I notice the drool crust on the corner of my mouth until…3 pm. So yah. But when I DO stop wearing adult diapers and Sooner passes the infant crazy stage, we are LEAPING to the fitness and feel good stuff. I’m so excited!
Baby Update #3: I’m still pregnant. 40+3. It’s ok. Blizzard warning for this evening; here’s to hoping the storm does its job! I’ve been sick TWICE this morning. Two times. This whole pregnancy I have ONLY had about a 3 week reprieve from toilet worship. I know some of you feel that I am complaining a lot, and that I need to enjoy my time with Gooner, and my alone time but it is hard when I am about to head to the bathroom for my THIRD time JUST while writing this post. Just know I am doing my best to enjoy everything that is soon to change.
PS: Sorry for the lack of pictures…it is directly related to my lack of energy. It takes ALL day for me to clean our humble abode, make supper AND parent Gooner.
