the sisterhood of the traveling scarf

when: tuesday, feb. 21, 2012

what i wore:
dress: h&m mama
tights: we love colors
shoes: simply vera vera wang via kohl’s
scarf: c/o

where: work, life group

these photos are obviously from a few weeks back. :) i got this scarf from amy, who got it from tieka, who got it from sarah, who got it from maggie, who got it from the other sarah, who got it from stacie. did you get all that?

it arrived in this fun box, with a map and list of rules:

i enjoyed my time with the scarf, and hope i don’t get kicked out of the group for breaking the rules and keeping the scarf for much longer than i was supposed to. (something big kind of happened that kept me from the post office for a couple weeks.)

the scarf is finally on its way to the adorable liz. i can’t wait to see how she wears it!

37 weeks (aka full-term!)

when: monday, feb. 20, 2012

what i wore:
shirt: soon maternity (gift card)
blazer: target
jeggings: american eagle
shoes: sam & libby (tj maxx)

where: work

  • i’m officially full-term! although it’s best if she stays in there for a couple more weeks, they won’t stop me if i go into labor. i have an internal tug-of-war going on between wanting her here and wanting her to stay inside a couple more weeks. {i kind of have my heart set on a march baby!}
  • my clinic does not automatically check for progress, but i asked them to see what was going on this week. well, i am 3 cm dilated and 100% effaced. eek! my midwife was pretty surprised, considering this is my first baby. technically i am in early labor, and although i’ve been having lots of contractions it could still be weeks before she decides to come! i do think that being checked can “get things going,” because afterward i had contractions for 10 hours. they finally stopped when we went to bed. i was exhausted!
  • the other day it hit me and i just had to stop to stare at my belly and think about what my body has been doing the past nine months. it is crazy how it can make a baby without me doing much of anything. i have been so focused on myself and how i’m feeling (yes, i’m incredibly selfish…), but when i step back and see the big picture i am so in love with this little girl. i hope our transition into parenthood is a smooth one. {any tips are welcomed!}
  • total weight gain = 25 pounds
  • baby’s heart rate at last appointment = 140 bpm
  • we found a day care! finally! and it is seriously perfect! ahh. we are so relieved. it’s just a few blocks away from our house, and it is going to be a great place for our little girl.
  • we went to a breastfeeding class last week. turns out i am not yet mature enough for such a thing. there were lots of giggles…oh boy.
  • check out a few of my maternity photos, which were taken by my husband last weekend.
  • nursery reveal coming soon!!!

do you have any pregnancy questions for me? i’m a pretty open book…

sweater turned scarf

what i wore:
dress: soon maternity (gift card)
cardigan: wallace for madewell (via ebay)
jacket: target
scarf: gap, hand-me-down (it’s actually a sweater)
necklace: urban outfitters
leggings: soon maternity (gift card)

so this scarf, is actually a sweater. how neat is that? leave it to van to come up with something so brilliant. actually my whole outfit was inspired by her. i can’t wait to try it again…maybe next time with a cardigan! i love it because it’s super easy and my scarf collection just doubled in size!
