Sail Away

Wednesday, April 6, 2011

 

I'm 37 weeks pregnant now and today's outfit is one of the last of my dresses that still fits and is comfy to wear. It's a vintage striped sun dress with little clear buttons on the straps. I picked it up at an estate sale last summer and I really love it, especially during St. Louis' 100 degree summer days. I think I may replace the clear buttons with red or blue ones and add some fun rick-rack or other trim to it at a later date.






My little lobster pin is one of my favorite, new silly accessories. I found him at an antique mall for $1. The dish that he was sitting in had a matching lobster pin in it so I bought them both. My little "love lobsters" are named Sally and Pete.

It's been a long time since I've had the energy and desire to do something fun with my hair so today, I did some asymmetrical victory rolls. I had some fly-aways here and there but hey, I'm out of practice! I'm also in the process of crocheting all new snoods for myself. I love the way a handmade snood stays put without a bazillion pins and it doesn't sag over time like these yucky cheap ones. Waiting for Rhys to arrive has given me a LOT of time to keep my hands busy with my hook and yarn.
 




Baby Update: yesterday afternoon, I went to the hospital with contractions. They were regular and going pretty good for about 2 hours when they suddenly stopped! After an exam and being hooked up to the monitors for a few hours, they sent me home. Aww, bummer! Oh, well- it just means that my little bun gets to bake a bit longer! :)

  3. You look great!! I remember 3 1/2 years ago with my youngest son I went in 2 times and was sent home. I was having contractions for at least a week but when ever I got to the hospital nothing D was afraid to come out.

  25. What a beautiful pregnant woman you are! When I was pregnant, I could hardly put on lipstick and wanted to hide from the world. It looks like you have been taking very good care of yourself and you won't have much baby weight after, either. Lucky!

I just found your blog on IFB today (I started my own blog yesterday) and came to check it out. Congrats on the new baby too!
    Much love,
