A little this and that

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!

Boots - Target
Bag - Merona, Target 

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!
