So guess what? Dresses are really comfy at this stage of pregnancy. Which is sort of like, duh. Even if it makes it more of a "tunic" than a dress, I am so comfy in this entire outfit! And it still looks nice for work! I seriously love this Japanese Weekend dress and I fully intend to still wear it next spring and summer too as long as it doesn't look too big. I love the colors and the print.
How much do I love that it's a short week? Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I love the family togetherness, I love the food, I love celebrating the blessings in my life. I do like Christmas and I'm anxious to get my house all decorated and ready for it before baby, but I like to do it after Thanksgiving if I can. I like keeping the two holidays separate. Don't even get me started on how stores will be open on Thanksgiving to get the holiday shopping started, we'd be here all day.
I have the day off after Thanksgiving, I wasn't going to take it off because I'm saving all my time for baby, but I just really wanted a day. Mr. Monkey is going to work so I'll miss him, but I plan on still enjoying my day. I have my weekly OB visit and then I'm going to work on decorating the house for Christmas, at least a little bit. Maybe watch some movies. I just need a day like that and I'm not going to get another one for about 18 or more years, so I'd better take advantage of it while I can!

And yes, mama got a new bag. I know you guys. I'm weak. I broke No Shop November for myself. But in fairness, I was given a Target gift card from a dear friend for my birthday and I wanted to use it on something for myself and not for baby or groceries. Target was having a buy one, get one 50% off sale on bags and wallets - so I treated myself. I'm loving them both! Target is on fire right now with clothing and accessories I must say!
Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! I'm guessing my posting will be sporadic if non-existent over the next couple of days here - so know that I'm away celebrating with family and it's not baby time! I fully intend to still be around posting next week, I don't think this little guy is showing up anytime soon. I wish you and yours a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving here in the US! I'm thankful for all of you!
