Well hello again!  Thanks for letting me be a crankypants yesterday - today has started off much better.  And yesterday improved as it went on.  Oh the trials of a pregnant woman.  

The biggest bright spot in my day yesterday was getting our tickets in advance to the new Hunger Games movie.  We're going to go on Saturday and treat it as a birthday celebration since we both have birthdays next week.  We're splurging and going to a fancy movie theatre - they have fancy snacks, nice seats and a bar.  How can you beat that?  It's expensive, but it will be worth it!  Probably will be the last movie out we'll get to in awhile too, so might as well go all in!

I really love how this sweater still has tons of room for my expanding bump.  Some of my maternity items are getting a little snug already, but this one I know I can wear pretty much to the day I deliver!  It's so comfy.  And so are these dress pants actually.  I'm pretty much to the point that I'm wearing them to work about once a week I think!  Love them.  I also love that once again, I'm rocking high heels.  And I decided to bring out my favorite thrifted find ever - my patchwork Coach bag.  I thought the colors were screaming Fall, so it was time to pull it out of storage.  Just goes to show you never know what you'll find at the Goodwill!

 Sweater - Oh Baby, consignment

Also helping my mood yesterday was Mr. Monkey and myself getting a bunch more done off of our checklist for baby, every little thing we take care of makes me feel good!


  1. Glad to hear your day turned around yesterday and today is already shaping up to be better!Another cute outfit!

  2. So happy to hear that your day is a little brighter! I think a date night at the movies is a perfect birthday celebration! :) Love that! We always say we want to go see movies and it just seems like life gets in the way! I hope your week just keeps getting better and better. xo
