Y'all. Life is weird. And it seems like I do a lot of blogging from my yard this summer. But it's too gorgeous not to!
But life, lately, that's what this post is about, right? Well, for starters, I was in a wedding on Saturday. My best friend's wedding, in fact. And it was a blast. A busy day that started with bridal party coffees and ended with post-reception tacos.
The bride was gorgeous. The groom was radiant. And? We. Got. Down. So much so in fact that Monday I called my OB's office to ask why it felt like I had a water balloon instead of a uterus.
Yeah. That totally did happen.
We were also able to reconnect with some friends from college. Friends who, without us knowing them? We might not be married because we probably wouldn't have met. How is that for serendipity? We spent a solid afternoon out with them exploring downtown, enjoying tater tots at Lachey's, and buying a fun shark clock for the nursery.
In addition to that there's been a lot of cat snuggling. A lot of reading. And enjoying some of the lovely weather we're due to have this weekend. I finally broke down and bought some maternity shorts (more on that later), because I'm short enough that well, I literally went from able to zip into a slim-fit taffeta gown on Saturday to popping by Monday.
And I never truly understood what ladies meant when they said they popped overnight, but that totally did happen, and now I feel like I can't get enough of the elastic waisted clothing. I'll be doing a "what I'm wearing" post eventually, because I'm still able to mix and match a lot, but I am starting to favor maternity tops. With those I at least look pregnant and not just like I ate too many burritos.
I've also developed quite the obsession with figs lately. They're delicious. But impossible to find. BUT. I had an exceptionally long drive home from work on Wednesday night and necessity led to a stop at Whole Foods. Where I totally bought some Mission Figs. And I cannot WAIT to roast them with some prosciutto and honey and devour them atop some whipped ricotta. Cannot. Wait.
But really, that's been the basics of life lately. At least for now. It's been pretty simple round these parts, which makes me happy. Simple, sweet, and fun. I'm still figuring out where my belly is in space, which sounds odd, but it did pop up overnight! And I am eagerly looking forward to what is going to be a jam-packed but fun weekend.
I'll be back soon with some early pregnancy favorites of mine! Have a great night!
