What I Wore :: 20 Weeks

So here we are folks. Halfway through.... already or finally? Not sure which. I think having kept this a secret for so long made those first months just draaaaag along. But I do strongly believe the time that you and your husband have where you are the only two people who share this 'secret', is something special you only get to encounter a number of times (unless you're the Duggar family). Now that it's out in the world(thank you all for the overwhelmingly sweet notes!), I wanted to do some quick housekeeping. I'm sure you're wondering if this will turn into a full-on mommy blog..... frankly, I am too. Right now, that is obviously what is mostly on my mind... I mean, have you seen my Pinterest boards lately?! But, I also want to share things that aren't baby related to keep my sanity before all attention really does go to raising a mini-human (that's the technical term for them, right?). 

Honesty has always been an important thing to me. I haven't used this blog yet as a place to discuss anything super duper personal, but now that I'm feeling extra emotional and all, I've been prone to want to write on a more relatable level about this whole pregnancy thing. Don't start running to the 'exit' button quite yet (this means you too.... all three of you men who read this blog). My hope is to share the things I have found interesting about this whole process, how I'm navigating the weeks and be open about the questions I have in hopes of utilizing this massive thing called the 'internet' to pull as much information out of you already mama's out there so I have even the slightest fighting chance of surviving motherhood. Cause let's face it.... you're never fully prepared, have any clue where to find the right answers and can convince yourself in all of five minutes that finding fashionable maternity jeans may end up being the fight of your life. Scratch that.... the fight of your life will be the first time you have to put on maternity tights..... but more on that later. The normal programming of outfit posts, DIY projects, fun weekend adventures, new food finds and design inspiration will all still be a part of my life, and thus, a part of this little corner of the blogging world. So have no fear, I am not completely going all baby mama drama on you.... just like 60%, maybe 70%. 

It would bring me much joy if you'd love to join me in this adventure, learn with me, tell me all your baby raising secrets and be patient as I navigate my way through this time in life. I think this post officially takes us to the next step in our relationship! So, shall we?
