One of Those Outfits: 39 Weeks, 6 Days AKA My 33rd Birthday!

Yup, today I'm 33 years old.  It's been a pretty uneventful day, really and I'm ok with that :)  After breakfast and a little internet time, I decided to go back to bed for an hour or so and took a great nap with the big old beast which was just perfect.  After getting up, tidying some and rallying myself, I took some time to dig around in my closet to find something I hadn't already worn 20 times in the past month and to make myself feel pretty (these last few days of pregnancy are hard, mmkay!?).  
 A friend dropped by to borrow some tables and ended up hanging out for a bit which was wonderfully welcome.  I also got to catch up on the phone with a friend on the the other side of the pond who I miss dearly.  I made myself some lemon cupcakes with lemon icing (Have I mentioned my obsession with lemon desserts over the past nine months??) and may have sampled a few.  
 This evening, my family gathered at my favorite local Indian restaurant where we (me) proceeded to pig out.  It was glorious.  My sister flew in late last night so she was also in attendance which was a present in itself.  We joked about inappropriate subjects, which seems to be the norm in our family, played Mad Libs, shared fantastic food and enjoyed each others company to the fullest. 
 This dress came from an estate sale this summer (the same sale this dress came from) for a quarter.  Yes, a quarter.  The belt was previously attached and very awkward so after putting it on this afternoon, I carefully used the seam ripper to remove it and just tied it on as a sash.  I can't wait to see what some of these random dresses I've been wearing pregnant will look like when I'm NOT pregnant.  
I made the mister (and the beast) join me for one timed photo.  I figured this would more than likely be the last belly shoot before she comes so it just made sense.  The last time he joined me on one of these was 18 weeks along, when we found out it was a little girl we were having.  He shaved off the beard the other day so I keep joking that Rio won't recognize him when she's born ;)  

So when will she be here?  Who knows but we're alllllllll ready.  Very (very, very) ready.  And now one of my questions has been answered - I'll be 33 years old with a new baby.  


  1. You look GREAT! I'll be 35 weeks pregnant on Friday, and I'm starting to reach that point where I really dread getting dressed in the morning. Everything looks funny. I just bought some maternity jeans because it's going to get chilly before I can fit into my regular jeans again, and even though stopped looking good on me once I put them in my closet(they stretch out and get BAGGY, which essentially gives me the worst case of mom jeans ever). You're definitely working it more than I can be bothered to right now, haha!

  2. Yay happiest of happy birthdays!! I remember you said the little one was supposed to be due… I think yesterday, so I hope all is well for you and you're hanging in there ok! Kind of fun though I think that you were able to enjoy your birthday with friends like that instead of the hospital although of course Rio will be a wonderful late birthday gift. And I didn’t know you were 33, you look like the same age as me! That is awesome though, my mom had just turned 35 when she had my brother and me and I def want to be around that age as well when I have my first (of not many : ). But anyway, glad you had a wonderful day, enjoyed a fantastic dress (and a quarter, wow!), and have an amazing first year w/ the little one soon!

  3. You looked beautiful on your birthday, and you look just as much so now that your little lady has celebrated her birthday! Congrats to the happy couple and the fur family! That last pic is just too sweet.

  4. Glad to hear you had a nice restful birthday! You look beautiful and I am so excited that she is finally here! Hope you are doing well and enjoying getting to know your little one!~

  5. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could
    add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    amusing, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I'm
    very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something relating to this.
