So this is happening....

Maybe you've noticed my posts lately - for the last couple of months in fact - have lacked their usual stories and fun anecdotes.  You see, I've been keeping this really big secret that I haven't really been able to blog about until now....


There's not much to see there around my belly yet - but there is a baby in me.  Yes folks, this chick is pregnant.  If you are FB friends with me or follow me on Twitter/Instagram you probably already discovered this news.  We're finally to the magic 12 week mark, so it's just time to put it out there.  The Pants Monkey and I were quite surprised to discover that we were expecting in early April.  It's been an interesting ride since then.  I'm VERY fortunate to be feeling reasonably good - save for a headcold that hit just this week, the worst of my symptoms have been tiredness and extreme hunger.  No sickness, thank the Lord.

 Shirt - F21, thrifted
Jeans - Old Navy
Shoes - Merona, Target
Necklace - Bead for Life
Bracelet - S&D
Arm cuff - thanks to a routine blood draw


So, we are due December 13th.  I do not intend to make this a pregnancy blog or even a parenting blog too much - nothing against mommy bloggers, I have another friends/family type blog where that stuff will likely go.  Instead you'll get to see me attempt to stay fashionable as I grow and adjust to life as a mom.  I'll never stop loving clothes, shopping, thrifting and remixing my wardrobe - so this just adds one more challenge for me to attempt!  There are many stylish mamas out there in blog land whom I look up to and admire and many of them will be my muses in this little adventure.

That's my story!  It's nice to finally let the cat out of the bag so to speak!  Hope you all have a great weekend!

  23. It's hard keeping the secret on your blog isn't it? You have/had extreme hunger. I had a severe aversion to food and had to force myself. I was always nauseous. I kept back reading your posts to see how you announced. My posts on my blog lacked before my reveal because of moving and lack of internet and then I had some coding work to do for my class that was very time consuming. But now I have internet and the work is spread out so you'll see me post some more.
