Tagged...and a bit of stage fright!

Wow, that's a lot of love on one blog entry! Now I am getting nervous...! I had so much fun reading them and finding so many awesome new blogs out there. I will add a few more tomorrow, but I am loving my long list!
I will try to post some new bump pics tomorrow, since we are now officially at 14 weeks. I went on a shopping adventure with my best friend Jess today. She needed a power suit and I needed any and all things elastic. Maternity clothes, though...I think I'll pass. Who decided that people don't want to LIKE their clothes when pregnant?? SO I got several pairs of calf length leggings and a bunch of cute long shirt/short dress tops. I did find one good pair of jeans...And a pair of black flats...and black boots. Okay, AND some makeup from Sephora. I feel much better, and can finally give my poor pair of brown yoga pants a much needed break. And of course, we found a great suit for Jess that will surely land her the teaching job of her dreams...right here in Lamar County, right Jess?? ;)
There was big news over on my friend Catherine's blog today...go have a look, and give some CONGRATS!!
Now for the fun survey, brought to you by Chandra and Virginia.

Hey! I think maternity clothes have come a long way! I accidently bought a maternity top at Target, not knowing it was for someone pregnant. It was really cute.


And I'll get right on my list... tomorrow.

Catherine and Dustin said...

I did mine!!! Go check it out!

Nooo! Don't tag me—I'm terrible at these things! I would have trouble coming up with 8 interesting things about myself combined, let alone 8 interesting things in 8 categories. Eek. But I'll think about it. :-)

Regarding maternity clothes: I'm living on hand-me-downs and Gap and Old Navy Sales. I've actually found some great sweaters for super cheap, and I'll be able to wear them even after I have my body back (if that ever happens).

2 things-

No, apparently pregnant women are not supposed to care about their clothes, I finally found some I liked in San Francisco.

And, now I have to go pull out my Steve Earle. I'm a big fan of Christmastime in Washington. (as well as Galway Girl)
