This "n" that

Hey it's Friday!  Yay!  Although I have another busy weekend on tap.  I swear I cannot wait to get to July, life will slow down just a hair then!  But for now, one day at a time.

We had some big storms move through last night.  They were a bit noisy, so I'm glad I have some coffee this morning!  Could be a long day otherwise!

It's been hit or miss finding maternity clothes at the thrift store.  I have found if I just go raid the regular shirt racks a size up from my normal size, I'm finding plenty of good shirts.  I look for some that have a higher empire style waist on them.  I have laughed too - if I would pull a shirt like these off the rack when I wasn't pregnant, I would say "This looks too much like a maternity shirt" and put it back!   Now I can't get enough of them!  They'll be great transition pieces for after baby too.

And I am giving you guys a bump picture today.  I'm officially 15 weeks.  Sara was so sweet to say yesterday that I still barely look pregnant - part of that has been how I've been standing I think!  So here, I'll bare all today!

We're moving right along.  I have my 16 week OB appointment next week and hope to talk about and set up my gender scan so we can find out just what is growing inside of me!

Hope you all have a great weekend! (And PS - my jury duty is OVER!)


  1. Cute outfit today! Yay for jury duty being over! Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

  2. The tropical print is great for the summer! I'm glad you're still able to find a bunch of tops that fit your bump. :) Have a great weekend!

  3. You do look fantastic, and the the colors look great on you! You have a little bump, but you've got a long way to go to look really pregnant!!

  4. Cute outfit! Happy 15 weeks dear! <3

  5. Yah a baby bump picture! This top is awesome and so perfect for summer with the colors. Enjoy your weekend and hopefully you can find some time to relax :) Heather

  6. I really like this colour combination - one of my favourites. I love that you're still thrifting for maternity clothes - good for you!

  7. You look cute! Good luck thrifting, I know it can be super challenging!

  8. Sweetie, you may be baring it all, but you're still looking less pregnant than some non-pregnant people you know. You do, however, look super glowy and awesome, which I assume happens anytime someone is pregnant (and excited about it). I want to jump on the baby train!

  9. Congrats! I couldn't even tell you were pregnant until you did the bump picture :). I love the colors in your top, very pretty.

  10. Your baby bump is so adorable! I love this color combination as well! Have a fantastic weekend!

  11. Awww! I agree though, you barely show your bump in most pictures. Thrift stores are rather full of empire/babydoll cuts. I LOOK pregnant when wearing them mostly, so I struggle with it. However it does work for the actual preggers ladies!

  12. Lovely Colors Bethie. You are glowing. I found out between 15-16 weeks the gender so you might be able to find out with this appointment.

  13. Beautiful color combination. And good luck with finding nice maternity wear. In my thrift-store, they organize clothes and one rack is labeled "Maternity Clothes." At first, I thought it'd be foolish to look there but then I realized they're just clothes, not sonograms. So I shop there too. Happy Summer!

  14. Great inventive shopping Bethie! Adorable top. I love the color and how you paired it with the little sweater. So darling. Watch for pics from the Wedding during this next week sometime. We had tons of laughs and food! OMyGosh!

  15. I would wear that outfit and I'm NOT pregnant. ;-) I think it looks super cute on you and I love those colors together. And (Ally reminded me) I bought one of my favorite sweaters in the preggers section of a thrift store.

  16. Cute top...and cute little bump too! :)


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
