Inspiration Monday - Spilling the beans

Hey everyone!  Sorry for my radio silence on Friday and through the weekend.  It was a lot of work running the garage sale!  I'm actually happy to be back to work and kind of back to normal today!  I know you're all on pins and needles to hear what I'm having - but let's start with Inspiration Monday because I'm evil like that.

Here's gorgeous Anne Hathaway in a nice casual ensemble.  Band t-shirt, skinny jeans and flats - definite weekend look!  I was happy to copy this for my Sunday - my one day to recover after all the garage sale madness.

 I have yet to find any cute skinny maternity jeans, but I wore my current favorite pair of regular maternity jeans!  This is also one of my favorite concert t-shirts ever.  It's from 2010's Rock the Garden at the Walker Art Center.  We haven't gone now for a couple of years and I miss it, it's a great summer event here in Minneapolis.  2010 had a really fun line up, but I also love how trippy and fun this t-shirt is.  I have a close up in another picture I'll show you.  The best thing about this shirt is it currently fits over the bump too!

Shirt - 89.3 The Current's Rock the Garden 2010
Jeans - Gap Maternity, thrifted
Hat and shoes - Target
Necklace - Charming Charlie 

Here's a close up of the print of the shirt - you can see my fun owl necklace too.  I just love all the colors in this shirt!  It's one of those tried and true shirts I'm sure I'll wear until it completely falls apart.

So let's see, what else can I talk about?  The cold weather we had this weekend?  The fact that we closed up the garage sale early on Saturday due to rain?  Oh that's right - you want to hear my big news!  All right, our families know now, so without further ado, the baby is....

Yes he most definitely is a BOY.  We had no question at all at the ultrasound!  We're very excited - I know every mom says she just wants a healthy baby and yes, that is definitely true in this case, but we're super happy it's a boy.  And I have been finding that boy clothes are just as adorable as girl clothes, so I can't wait to dress this little man up!  He's going to be one stylish dude!

 Tank top - Motherhood, thrifted
Sweater - F21
Pants - Liz Lange, thrifted

Our families are just as excited as we are and now I feel like I can finally start shopping and planning his room now that I know what I'm working with!  We have a couple of name ideas but whatever we decide on will be secret until the birth.  Gotta leave one element of surprise!

Now I need to dive back into the grind, lots to catch up on after another almost week's worth of vacation. Doesn't feel much like a vacation after working that sale though, that is for sure!
