Best Dress Purchase Ever

dress: belk, jacket: from suz, tights: gap, shoes: target
This dress has to be one of my best clothing purchases ever.  I got it when I was in high school or just after graduating, and I think I've had it 7 years now, and even better... it fits the bump!  
And can I just say how much I love these booties? Because I do, I love them.

shirt: ross, skirt: made by me, shoes: tjmaxx

These photos were hiding in my iPhoto, so even though this outfit is from the summer I though I would share.  This shirt is one of my favorites, but because of the pearl collar I have to hand wash it.  Which means I wear it once or twice and it sits in my dirty hamper for months.  It's currently sitting on top of my washer waiting to be cleaned.  Maybe one of these days I'll get around to washing it before my bump gets too big to fit.

Fall Ball

 sweater: tj max (viv's), skirt: made by me, shoes: f21

On Friday night I remembered that our church was having a Fall Ball. It actually sounded pretty lame but I wanted free dessert.  I forced Jordan to dress up fancy and we went to get some food.  Once we got there it was as lame as we thought it would be :), but they had water color painting stations set up and I actually had a lot of fun. I feel like I'm in my element with all the other bad dancers and bad pop music.

I made my skirt following this tutorial. I love it but I feel like I need a reason to dress fancy to wear it. My goal for this fall/winter: find as many reasons to wear this skirt as possible.

Thanksgiving Round One

dress: target, sweater: gap outlet, boots: famous footwear
My husband is from Canada which means in our house we get two Thanksgivings!  Canadian Thanksgiving is this Monday so we're having some friends over Sunday to celebrate.  That also means I can put up my Christmas decorations as early as I want, because the rule is to wait until after Thanksgiving right? ;)

Hope you all have an awesome weekend with our without Thanskgiving dinner.

Hello fall

sweater: hand me down, shirt: cotton on, jeans: h&m, boots: target, necklace: mama
Happy Fall!  Fall has finally arrived, and hopefully it's here to stay for a while.  We had a few days last week that felt like we had already skipped to winter, and even woke up to a few inches of snow one day, but the past few days have been beautiful!

PS. I hope none of you get tired of seeing the same pair of jeans over and over.  My belly is getting too big to wear a hair elastic to hold my pants together, and maternity jeans are just too expensive to buy more than one pair.  Any tips from you mama's out there for what to wear while pregnant, especially to church? I've seem to already run out of church clothes that fit.
