Happy Spring! This is my favorite time of the year, a reward for surviving the winter. We spend so much of the winter stuck indoors so it’s nice to get out again. Yesterday we went out for the day and even though the kids were stressing me out, it was still so nice to get out of the house as a family. It was a great way to pass the time while we await my MRI on Friday. And any stressful day can easily be turned around with a stop to get ice cream–it never fails!
I can’t believe how much of a belly I have already at only 12 weeks!! This is about how big I was with Desmond at 18 weeks. So I’m a little afraid of how big that means I’ll get this time around. I’m nearing the end of the first trimester so hopefully that means I’ll regain some energy soon. But with 5 other kids to take care of, I doubt that’ll ever happen. I’ll just have to embrace a life with little rest!
This dress from Pinkblush Maternity is the softest, most comfortable dress! Floral patterns are my favorite to wear during the spring and summer months. It can be easily dressed up for a nicer event or dressed down for a day out exploring with the family. If you read A Beautiful Mess, you may recognize this pattern as it looks like Elsie Larson’s dining room wallpaper, which I am in love with! I styled with a denim jacket and a belt for a casual look for the cooler spring months. Since it is a sleeveless dress, I will be happily wearing it throughout the summer. And the best part of all? I will still be able to wear it as a non-maternity dress!
