*Bump status: 22 weeks

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a good weekend. I watched a couple of movies, ate yummy sushi (cooked, don't freak out), spent an afternoon in the pool and had some great talks with Eric. We have so much to figure out with this baby-thing (registry! name! schedule!) so it was nice to just go out and talk about adult things. Like, what our dog does when we aren't home, and stuff like that.

In other news, my friend Emily bought me this dress for my birthday. It's the perfect non-maternity, maternity summer dress. I have worn it to the pool, to dinner and I might even be able to pull it off at work with a blazer. So thank you, Emily. Can I use this blog post as a substitute for a thank you note?

  5. this dress is gorgeous!! and bump! you are so cute.
    meanwhile I know way too much about babies and registries cause I like to read and dream and plan so that equals knowing exactly what crib, stroller and breast pump I want. Ok maybe a little too much info, but hey. If you want to ask a non mother who knows nothing about babies her opinion, hit me up.
    Oh names! the most fun. I cannot wait to hear it :) You can tell me, I can keep a secret. I won't tell you mine so you don't steal it though... jk. but not really.

  7. I absolutely love this whole look. Unfortunately I live close to Target, so I'll be heading over to see if I can find it then catch it on sale. This is one of the good things about blogging. Strangers become your shopping friends. I wouldn't have given it a second look online, but the in real life photos shows just how pretty it really is. You can easily pull out any color from the bottom and match cardigans and accessories. Emily has great taste, thank her for me as well!

  13. Awwww yay! So excited for you. Cute dress, you look radiant. How has spending most of your pregnancy in the spring and summer been? I spent the most of all my pregnancies in the fall/winter. Rachel xo

    1. It's been completely good! I think it would be tough if I was 35+ weeks in the heat of the summer, but the weather will have cooled off by the time I get there and I am so glad :)

  18. KEEP EMILY AROUND FOREVER. She has fabulous taste. Tell her I said so. The colors are so wonderful, and you just look stunning, my friend. I laughed out loud at the what our dog does when we're not home. Have a laugh at this: What our pets do when we're not home
    You're welcome in advance.

  21. Yay for fun maxi dresses! The pattern on this one is gorgeous. You seriously can't even see a baby bump unless you put your hand under it. Crazy how that works!

  22. You look beautiful and that is the perfect necklace to pair with this dress! Susan

  23. This really is an amazing dress. You look adorablleeeee!!!! And my only recommendation for "baby stuff" is to get the book, Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child. It saved my life in terms of getting baby to sleep!

  24. Your friend is awesome! This dress is amazing! I really love the colors and the pattern. Oh and this necklace is the exact perfect length with this dress.

  25. you look SO cute pregnant. and in this dress!

  26. Cute dress. I probably wouldn't be brave enough to wear a strapless dress to work even with a blazer - I'd feel like I was cheating.

    Legit conversation my husband and I have 99% of the time we are not at our house: "What do you think the animals are doing right now?" "Probably sleeping." "Yeah, they're cute."

  27. Don't you just love Maxis! I think they are the perfect summer dress! I only have two in my close though!

  29. Your bump is looking so cute! :)

    Your friend gave you a gorgeous dress - really like the print! I found non-maternity dresses worked really well during pregnancy, empire waists and stretchy maxi dresses accommodated the bump all the way up to the third trimester!

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
