Inspiration Monday - Junetober

First of all - THANK YOU all so much for the well wishes!  It's just another reason I love this community so much. I would love to thank you all in person, but it would seriously take me all day long - but just know I appreciated every single comment.  I have to say, while I intend to keep my promise of not turning this into strictly a pregnancy blog, it is such a relief to not have to keep that secret anymore!

Secondly - was anyone else's weekend too short?  Man, the time flew by this weekend.  Then again, we were pretty busy, so I suppose that is part of it!

And thirdly - it's Inspiration Monday and well - I did another "if you blink" type inspiration outfits, mostly because of the weather than anything else.  Here is Lauren Conrad in a very cute summer dress and hat.

And here is me all bundled up because it's not going to be all that warm today!  Seriously, yesterday it didn't get out of the 60's.  Today I think it's only going to be about 70.  And it's June?  Yeah, that's been the name of the game around here lately though.  We seem to be one month behind weather wise this year.  Or maybe we skipped ahead to October.  It feels almost fall like in the air!

So for anyone curious, a large majority of my clothes still fit which is pretty nice.  The good news is, I have a ton of flowy sundresses like this one that are going to allow for growth as I get bigger this summer.  And peasant tops seem to be in this year, so I've already bought a few in slightly larger sizes than normal.  I am trying to not shop too much if I can help it, or I've stuck with my consignment shops/thrift shops for anything I have bought so far.  And I did splurge on this bag.  Kind of a treat for myself after a bad day a few weeks ago.  I had seen this bag with Megan from Feathers and Freckles and I realized it just might be the perfect bag ever.  I'll talk more about it in another post though or we'd be here all day!

 Dress - VS, gift from the Pants Monkey
Sweater - LOFT, consignment
Sandals - Mootsie Tootsie, from cousin
Necklace- Bead for Life
Bag - Lulu's

I think June is going to fly by.  We have a busy schedule with our music group.  The Pants Monkey and I are also re-taking golf lessons once a week to work on our skills some more.  We're trying to somehow get ready for and find time for a garage sale.  I'm helping out a good friend and hosting a 31 Party.  And in the midst of all that, I also get to call in and see if I actually have to report for Jury Duty next week.  Yes, that's right, I was summoned.  Nothing makes you feel more like an adult than getting summoned for Jury Duty, I'll say that much!

Whew.  So there you have it.  It's all happening friends.  This baby isn't slowing this chick down, that's for sure!  For more Inspiration Monday outfits, head on over to two birds over here.
