Inspiration Monday - Birthday Girl

Hello everyone!  It's my birthday!  I'm 32 today. And we had a good weekend of pre-celebrating!  First up though, is Inspiration Monday with two birds.  Today's model is Sienna Miller in the cutest leopard dress ever.  I'm seriously going to look for something like that for post-baby!

My take on the look is pretty laid back - but I do what I can at this state of my pregnancy!  I'm comfortable, so I guess that is good right?

So back to my weekend, I started my day on Saturday with a manicure and pedicure with my bloggy buddy Lori - it was fabulous.  We had bought Living Social deals awhile back and I tell you it was a great deal and I'm so glad I had it done this far into my pregnancy - it was the best treat to have my feet done!  I highly recommend it if any of you ever find yourselves pregnant, do yourself a favor and get a pedicure, seriously.

After that I met back up with my Pants Monkey and we headed off to the fancy theater to see Catching Fire. Worth every penny I swear, the seats were comfy, they had gourmet snacks, Mr. Monkey was able to have some alcohol, no kids, best way to watch a movie!  The movie was fantastic too, maybe even better than the first.  I really can't wait for Mockingjay now even though I've heard rumors they're splitting it into two parts.

Shirt - Oh Mamma!, thrifted
Sweater - Style and Co, consignment
Pants - Liz Lange, consignment
Necklace - S&D
Shoes - Mudd, Kohls 

We finished out our evening on Saturday with dinner at a nice Irish pub near the movie theater.  Sunday we slept in, had a great breakfast at home and then headed out into the frigid, but beautiful day to have our maternity photos done.  I think they're going to be really nice based on the one preview I already saw!  Then we went to Babies R Us to return a few things we got duplicates on and were able to purchase a few items off our registry we hadn't received but really wanted.  Did a late mass with our music group and then more or less crashed!  Good kick off to our birthdays though.  Today after work we're just chilling at home and then tomorrow we'll celebrate both of our birthdays with our families since tomorrow is Mr. Monkey's birthday! We've always shared our birthdays but I wouldn't have it any other way!

For more Inspiration Monday looks, head on over to two birds over here!
