So... Surprise? TMI?

via google images, doughbasket.com

Luckily for me, no-one who reads this blog knows me in real life.

I got the surprise of my life yesterday at the doctor's office.

I'm 7 weeks pregnant.

dun dun DUN...

We've been trying for the last 9 months, and I had almost given up hope at this point.

At least I have an excuse for the extreme exhaustion on this side.We don't plan on telling anyone for another month, but I need an outlet so here you go. : ) I just really hope everything goes well and I have a healthy pregnancy and child. We're both very excited.

I found out because I was having some serious cramping and (TMI) thought I had a UTI... turns out I have a yeast infection and a baby. Lol. I missed my period this month but took 2 pregnancy tests a week apart which were negative, so I missed figuring out I was pregnant and thought I was just hormonal and stressed.

I don't expect this blog to become a 'mommy' blog.  :) But, I had to let the cat out of the bag SOMEWHERE!

March Week 3

I didn't get yesterday's outfit, so yet again a short week- Monday-Thursday. Which is your favorite? Least favorite? Any suggestions?

old standby

Dress- Lirola Etsy Shop
Shoes- 6pm Seychelles
Necklace- UO
Bracelet (not pictured)- JCPenny

Just a short OOTD. 80 degrees and needing to run errands in the heat plus work in the office = easy dress, ponytail, and simple accessories. This dress is just a flattering dress that works pretty much in all seasons, accessorized and plain.

Do you have a dress that you default to like this one?

Goodbye Cardigan

Dress- Loft Outlet
Belt- came with a top
Shoes- Seychelles via 6pm.com
Necklace- Maurices
Bracelet- JCPenny
Earrings- too old to remember (05'?)

Today did not feel like spring. It was 80+ degrees outside! So perhaps this dress is not super office-friendly, however I went to college where I walk a ton then drive in a car without a/c for an hour and a half and arrive at work in the afternoon on Wednesdays (hence the messy hair pulled back). The dress has such a pretty back detail- but hard to photograph with a cell phone. I had a sweater to cover up to make it more office-appropriate. I had buttoned it right where the belt is (it was quite flattering). Unfortunately my trusty pretty sweater met its end today and I was unable to wear it past early afternoon, and therefore did not get a picture:

So sad. I wear this cardigan a lot, despite that I have no recent photographic evidence. I'm very sorry to see it go!!! Here is a little ode to my sweater, bought in January of 2010. It was too small anyways. Photos courtesy my old blog:

Happy Spring

Pants- Thrifted
Shoes- Nine West
Bracelet/Necklace- F21

Today is the first day of Spring!! And nearly 80 degrees in March- it has been amazingly beautiful the last several days :) I'm stuck inside today for 12 hours, but at least my top is spring-like! These pants I thrifted last fall- they were brand new The Limited (with tags!) and fit like a dream, except they were a good 8 inches too long. I got them tailored to my highest heels (my favorite pair, and most comfortable). The tailor pressed really hard for me to let him take in the ginormous flare, and I have to say he was right- they look much better this way. All in all, I love this outfit and feel quite sexy (but professional enough) in it!


Top- Kohls
Shoes- 6pm (Seychelles)
Jeans- Old Navy
Bracelet- F21

So just a very casual day yesterday :). I had chemistry lab, so I brought my sneakers with me and switched into them so that I fit in the dress code. Just my favorite pair of stretchy jeans. Wish I could have worn a skirt! The weather is so beautiful here, it's amazing for March!

Hope you had a great weekend! I'll be back later tonight with today's outfit.
