Happy Friday folks! I don’t have much to post about today, boo. I have my 29 week checkup a little later this afternoon. It’s so crazy to think about… when you first get pregnant the doctors won’t see you for weeks because you’re “not pregnant enough” and then you go once a month… and now I’m at every 2 weeks! That’s how you know you’re nearing the end. I can’t believe in a few weeks I’ll have to go once a week. I may as well just set up a sleeping bag in my doctor’s office! I got an e-mail this morning from my baby app that says only 74 more days to go! Insane. Our crib arrived yesterday!! I can’t wait to put that together. Right now Baby R’s room is Matt’s office when he works from home on Friday’s & weekends. He’ll have to find somewhere else to set up soon.
Anywho. I feel good today because I did a little shopping this morning. Doesn’t spending money on things you don’t really need always make you feel better? It works for me! I am in a particularly good mood though because I bought 2 maxi skirts today that are not maternity! AND they’re a size small. The fact that I can still wear normal people clothes in a size small puts a smile on my face. My father, who is somewhat of a photographer, wants to take those artsy “pregnancy photos” of Matt & I this weekend. I was on the prowl for a sheer black maxi skirt to wear in the pictures and I was lucky enough to find one at Forever 21. Now if only a hot pink blazer would appear out of thin air I would really feel satisfied. I also got some sweet new rings today too. Check it.
Isn’t instagram the coolest app ever created? If you’re on it follow me! TheRachelRoss of course.
& This is the look I’m going for during this little photo shoot…
I don’t really know quite what to do for these pictures. My dad is all about it though, so I’m hoping he’ll have some cool and creative ideas. At first I was like, I’m never taking pictures like that, they’re so lame. And then I saw some on a tv show or something and I was so drawn to them! They really looked amazing and the couple looked so happy… I was like oh damn, now I want to! I didn’t say anything though because… like… who the hell do you tell? I don’t want to hire some cheesy glamour shot photographer to take our awkward “family photos” so I just didn’t say anything. Luckily my dad brought it up on his own. I’m excited! Even if they come out cheesy and incredibly awkward it’ll still be something nice to have, and if nothing else, will give us a good laugh. We should be doing that sometime this weekend and if they come out nice I’ll post a few! Hell even if they come out a little ridiculous I’ll post some. Why not have a good laugh at my expense, right? :]
OH Also! I just want to give a little update on my last manicure. As I posted here the other day, I previously purchased & painted my nails with a polish I found at none other than Forever 21… my current favorite place apparently. Well, it was only $2.80 as you remember, so let’s not all act shocked and surprised when I tell you that it chips horribly. Well, no, that’s kind of a lie. It doesn’t chip horribly, but it does chip quickly. It started to chip the day I painted my nails… which is kind of a bummer, but for less than three dollars I guess I can’t really complain right? And honestly, I paint my nails so often that chipping doesn’t really bother me because I’m already planning my next manicure as my current one is drying. SO! Just wanted to fill you in. A cute color, and certainly a steal, but it’s no Essie, obviously. ;]
So that’s all for now, loves. Have a wonderful weekend! xo
