This was supposed to be an outfit post but I accidentally put the memory card into my camera bag and then into the drawer in my desk at work. So I guess you'll see that tomorrow. Instead, I have some latest favs for you.
P.S. As it is Halloween and Gianna's 2nd birthday, Jen will be taking a blog break. So this is all you get. :)

2 years ago

2 years ago today was my induction day with Gia. I try not to think of the specifics of the hours leading up to her birth too often because it was a crazy, long, scary and painful day. But I so enjoy looking at pics of pregnant me as I find it truly amazing that my body was able to grow a baby, especially one that ended up being 10 lbs! So I thought that along with today's outfit pics, I'd share what a 205 lb pregnant me looked like.

Me, 2 years ago...

And today...

sunday quickly

Birthday party round 1 (yesterday) was hours of crazy fun with 13 of Gia's bestest friends and their wonderful parents. Birthday party round 2 is about to being in a few, so I only had time for hall mirror pics sans shoes as I don't make a habit of wearing them at home.

blouse: F21
jeans: Gap
belt: H&M
watch: Fossil
bracelets: Birks & Pandora

sunday breakie at the pub

...and likely what I'll wear to Gianna's 2nd birthday party later today. Can't wait! Jen puts on a good party. And I love taking pics of the kids - although the weather is shit so I hope I can get some decent ones. Anyhoo, I had to include a shot of Lucky who darted into my dressing room while I was trying to shoot my boots and went in behind the curtains. He matched my outfit but wouldn't come out to get in a photo with me.

anthro (sigh)

I have no business poking around Anthropologie, not with these kind of prices. But I'm watching my husband assemble Gia's birthday present from my parents (an amazing 3 story wood doll house!) and I'm bored. Sometimes it's nice to pretend like money grows on trees, and if it did, here's what I would buy:

etsy goodies

I was perusing Etsy recently looking for rings. I have wanted a spinner ring for years, and then several months ago I saw and fell in love with the idea of a simple thin band on every finger. Bands are boring so I won't be showing any of those but I did come across some fun rings, including some spinners. I also found some cool non-jewelry items I thought I'd share too.
