Kiss, Kiss



We had a little family photo shoot last night before the rain got to us. Sebastian was not as interested as we'd hoped but he did cooperate and got his cookie when it was over. I'm not too proud to bribe the kid when it comes to family photos. Elsie was our photographer and did a great job as always! I love how these colors turned out. We may be doing another when the weather clears up a bit which means getting to dress up again! What you can't see in this picture are the cute cowgirl boots I found at Goodwill last week and Sebastian standing off to my left playing with his toy airplane that we brought to keep him occupied.

Currently at 29 weeks and into the third trimester. I went into a mom & pop furniture shop today to ask about an armoire. The man had to call his Mrs. to get the price and told her he was talking to a woman who looks about 9 months pregnant.

...umm....

Yeah. I forgive older men for their pregnancy remarks as most of them are quite inaccurate but what do they really know about it. Right? Plus he gave me a GREAT deal on the armoire and I can't wait to pick it up tomorrow and get to work on it! It's old without being in bad shape and simple enough for me to 'trick out' without having to work around any strange details. After a good sanding, paint job, added rods and maybe some paper lining, I'll show you how pretty it is.

Thanks for stopping by!
xoxo,
Rachel

You look great! I totally know how you feel. When I was pregnant I got those comments too! A few days I gave birth, a woman in the grocery store said to me "Oh my..you are sooo BIGGGGG!"

oh i remember that feeling- some people just really are clueless when it comes to a pregnant woman's feelings!!! there was a lady at lowes that i pretty much wanted to kill, after she just wouldn't stop staring at me/my belly/it's hugeness (i was past due at that point) and she literally followed me around a few isles before hitting me up with the oh-so-original "whennnnn are you duuuuueee??!!"

so glad to hear about the armoire score!!!! i know you will do something gorgeous, can't wait to see!

I'm 27 weeks pregnant and get those comments too! It doesn't help that BIG babies tend to run in our family! I LOVE the colors you are using for your burpies...our baby didn't cooperate at our ultrasound so we have to wait to find out what it is and it's KILLING me! I had so many plans to sew and non-gendered colors just aren't that much fun ;)
