It’s Wednesday. Can I get an AMEN to the simple fact that this week is halfway over? This week is my four day weekend. Every other week I work so that I can be home for four days with my sweet twin babies (Friday-Monday). So, today is really like my Thursday..and tomorrow is really like my Friday. Next week I’ll work Tuesday-Friday and be back on Monday. Did you catch all that?
It’s okay if you didn’t..
What really matters is that today is my Thursday 😉
How about a little color to help you over your mid-week slump? Remember when I told you all about my love for Loft cords? I sort of fibbed a little. Unintentional, you see.
I told you I only have 2 pairs of colored corduroy pants. I lied. I do in fact have a pair in hunter green, red, and these in oh-so-pretty Easter egg purple. I feel so festive wearing these!
The sweater is last season from Loft- and looks more navy than plum purple in these pictures. But you’ll just have to take my word for it that it is indeed purple. Hopefully I haven’t lost too much of my credibility with you due to my little lie. But, really.. it has been almost a year since I wore any of those colors, and when I was searching for something to wear to a baby shower over the weekend, these popped out between my jeans and dress pants.
I was like ‘ooohhhh yeaa, I remember these!’ I had only worn them once before becoming pregnant, so they were easily forgotten.
I had to get over the fact that I would never be one of those women that wear their normal clothes with a belly band through their entire pregnancy. Curse you women. I went from having a 13 week belly to 8 month belly within like 3 days.
True story. I was in my third trimester for like 6 months.
Anyway, bed rest prevented me from getting much less use of any clothes, maternity or not, further than yoga pants and a tank top.
Shopping in my closet has been a lot of fun. I’m finding all kinds of ways to mix and match my wardrobe- and since I haven’t worn a lot of what I own in almost a year, it is like I’m wearing new clothes all over again!
Anyway I can save a buck these days. Diapers have consumed all of what was left of my clothing budget.
I’ll see the inside of a shopping bag full of clothes again one of these days.
