Oh yes


Rumba Pants!!
At least that's what my mom calls them, I think they could also be known as diaper covers.
I found a wonderful pattern and tutorial on Dana-made-it.com (I think that's the address?).
This fabric was super tricky to work with, but probably worth it, I mean look at all those ruffles!!
Baby girl I can not wait to see you in these...

Love this post

On J. Crew's blog, showing places they scouted out for their photo shoot and then the actual photo that ends up in the catalogue.
I would take that job...

Big Belly Jeans

I turned these into maternity jeans today! I feel pretty good about how they turned out. They are comfy, and I think I will be able to wear them even when my tummy is super huge.

So now I have designer maternity jeans that cost me 27 buck, you can't even get maternity jeans that cheap at target!

Non-Maternity Maternity clothes, a.k.a., Clothes.

Went to Nordstrom Rack today in search of some new sunglasses. I haven't been interested in shopping for clothes much lately because I am kind of at a loss for what to buy these days.
I ended up stumbling in to some cute stuff!
That will work for my baby belly as well...
I got a pair of super stretchy super low Seven jeans (for $27!!) that I am going to make in to my maternity jeans by adding a bit of elastic and/or a little belly band action. score.
I got a cool crochet top that looks super cute on.
and this long skirt that totally works for maternity because of the jersey waistband.

A day with baby Everett, Katie and Paul

Everett Sterling Clark

I was so fortunate to be able to get up to Amarillo on Wednesday to see Everett and Katie and Paul, I got to spend the whole day hanging out and giving some love to this sweet little man. No surprise that Katie was a champion during labor and everything went great, I think she had only slept a handful of hours since his birth when I was there, but she looked refreshed and happy to be holding her new little son. It is truly an amazing miracle to see her holding that precious being, who just days ago was still in her tummy. My mind reels with excitement when I think about holding my own baby in just a few short months!

In other news

For our anniversary Paul and I bought ourselves a new King size bed, and we love it!
Yesterday we went to Lowe's and bought some wood and we made a headboard, I think it turned out pretty well.

Emotional morning

Been being updated about the birth of this little guy all morning. My sweet Katie has given birth to her first baby boy on her own birthday today!! I don't even know his official name at this point, they were waiting until he was born to say for sure. I am going to try and hop on a flight tomorrow afternoon to go and see him and my friend, who I have known and loved since we were just babies ourselves.
