Happy Monday friends! Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend.

What’s that you say?  Oh yeah, look at that!  I’m almost 5 months pregnant!  Sorry to hold out on you but I’m not much into announcements and I’ve been so sick these past few months. I thought my bloated face in the Kohl’s videos gave it away but you are all so kind and had nothing but encouragement.

So yeah, a new baby…by end of summer!  I’m still getting used to the idea myself and have been so busy with the nursery school process (Bubba’s in!), looking for a new babysitter (damn your ambition Valen!), and puking my brains out (don’t worry, obviously I’m gaining weight like a pro).

This time around is so different from my pregnancy with Bubba, complete with a whole new set of fears and paranoia.  Hopefully I’ll get it all down in a post but in the meantime, I’ll leave you to marvel at how big my boobs are…already.  Enjoy, because my nose isn’t far behind.

Have a glamorous week!  xo

  28. So this is going to sound totally creepy, but I’ve known since I saw you at IFB! I just have a weird sense about these things. In the past I’ve known before members of my family have told anyone, and at only two and three months in. Congratulations!

    P.S. Your hair looks amazing!
