This is the outfit I wore to my date night with Sam this week. Thanks for weighing in on what movie we should see. We went with Moonrise Kingdom and it was so refreshing and tender and everything I thought it would be. These jeans you may remember from way back when. I was a little too excited when I could still zip them up. Great in theory and while standing, but as soon as we had dinner and made it to the movie, that zipper was on its way down. I actually didn't have it in me to zip them back up so I carried my bag in front of my crotch as we were leaving the theater. I'm classy like that. Speaking of classy... the ticket girl asked to look in my bag. Is this a new thing? We NEVER go to the movies anymore and I thought this was pretty shocking and was real glad I wasn't packing any extra treats.
The top I got from Anthro forever ago (actually I bought it after I had Matilda) and it's so pretty in the back. It has a big ivory bow. The shoes are Jcrew outlet and the jacket is from Forever 21. None of it is current. I have been feeling a bittt on the frumpy side so it was nice to get semi dressed up. I feel incredibly pregnant already and have been feeling really tired. I think a lot of that stems from me not exercising hardly at all or eating great. Ugh. You can read more about the struggle over at my blog for Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine. Kinda feeling like a failure lately, especially as my weight keeps going UP (rather quickly I might add, I realize that I have to gain weight, I'm just gaining more than I'd like). Also, my hair feels so dry. Not sure what to do about that. I'm sure getting a haircut will help (I only do this twice a year).
All of those trivial things aside, this week has led to more mourning as someone that I've known my whole life and who was very dear to some of my closest friends has also passed away. She left this earth in the most beautiful way possible, but it's so painful to lose someone you love so much. As I have this sweet baby growing inside me, I feel acutely aware of life and death. I just want to savor every day. The weight of that feels palpable.
