. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Confessions

February 28, 2013

Confessions

I confess that this is the first pair of full panel maternity pants I've worn and I love them.  I don't understand why some women try not to buy or wear maternity clothes.  They are SO comfortable and were only $10! 

blazer: tjmaxx     maternity pants: h & m     boots: target

I confess that I always want to pin these healthy dessert recipes but then I click on the recipe and see ingredients like agave syrup, raw cashews and cacoa nibs?  Nevermind.  I'll stick with my cheap, known unhealthy ingredients.  

Like this dessert that I want to make.  Hey it does have bananas in it? Healthy right? 


I confess that I want to buy everything on groopdealz.  I just bought this necklace yesterday and can't wait to get it.

I confess that I just finished re-watching all of the Hills episodes and am a little sad that it is over.  However, I won't miss watching their rich tan selves and all their vacations. 


I confess that I know our sweet baby's gender!!  We just have to tell Chris' parents and I will share it with you! 

I am ready to go shopping! 


And I confess that I already have a little. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Still scoring deals on your outfits! Can't believe you found maternity clothing at such a great price. and, that blazer is perfect, love it! I know what you mean about health food items, they def aren't ones you always have stocked. Enjoy the banana cake, you deserve it :) can't wait for the reveal!!

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love that necklace!!! I'm ever hopeful my sister could make something like it lol!
I am the same way with recipes! I'm not a fan of trying new things, although right now I don't really have a choice!

Love the hills as well!

Can't wait to hear what baby V is! I hope is a girl, because then you would be having te only girl I know being born around the due date! Everyone seems to be having a boy!!

Maternity clothes are amazing.

I'm so excited for you guys! Yay baby!! :)

CC said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I didn't buy maternity clothes because I couldn't find any that fit! I am super short waisted and once I got past a certain point my kiddo threw a fit if anything pressed on him. That included maternity panels. :) I can't wait to find out what you are having. :)

Jodi said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ahhhhhh can't wait to hear the gender!!!!! :)

Alyssa @ Sugar, Spice, and a Dash of Advice said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I'm 19 weeks and just got my first pair of maternity pants last week - most comfortable pants ever! Im with you, not sure why people try not to wear any maternity clothes, I'm wearing these afterwards...every pair of pants should have an elastic band!

Nice pants! I never had full panel maternity pants until my 3rd pregnancy. I wish I had had them sooner! I love groopdealz! So dangerous! Love the u/s picture of your sweet baby!

Amanda said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I'm excited to know whether you're having a girl or boy! That must be so fun to know just a big secret :) I'm gonna guess boy. And love the blazer!

Whitney Cypert said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That banana dessert looks and sounds yummy! I'm the same way, I always look at "healthy" desserts and am like never mind when I see the ingredients. I am so excited to find out if you are having a boy or a girl!

Casey said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Can;t wait to find out! And I love the Hills. I also really miss Laguna Beach.

Sybil@PeaceitallTogether said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

What a great blazer! I have never heard of groopdealz...looks like must check it out. :) So exciting that you were able to find out the sex of the baby!!

Kristine Foley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Eeeep!!! You tease!!! Cant wait to find out :) And if I looked stunning like u in maternity pants Id wear them too!!

Beth @ The Goad Abode said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love wearing maternity pants! I only bought one pair and have been fortunate to borrow several pairs from friends. Sometimes I feel like I'm wearing sweats b/c it's that comfy!

kateprs said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

At my local Target, it's really hard to tell where the women's section ends and where the maternity section begins. I've found myself (unintentionally) looking at maternity clothes before... and considered purchasing some for myself. Why can't a (non-pregnant) girl have a little stretch in her clothes? Anyway. You look great! Hope pregnancy is treating you well. I may have to take this outfit idea, too :)

Allison said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love the Hills and I'm not ashamed. I should probably go back and re-watch too. Haha. And I love that necklace you just bought!

Brittany said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ahhhhhhhhhhh I can't wait to hear the gender!!! So exciting!

I love the hills too...just good quality trash tv. And I love your new necklace! Oh and yes, maternity clothes are awesome. I found a lot at Goodwill on the cheap and they were super comfy.

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

So excited for you! Shop, shop, shop!

They also have blazers like that at Target, but the "clearance" price is still $20. I'll wait it out.

Laura @ Chaotic Domestic said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

So exciting that you know the baby's gender!! It'll be exciting to start planning around that, picking out decorations, clothing, for him/her.

Audra said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Did you buy those pants at your H&M store or online (I'm guessing online)? Our H&M maternity section SUCKS! They have like two things, and those pants are so cute!

TheTinyHeart said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

So exciting that you know the baby's gender! I love the Hill's too but then Heidi/Spencer got crazy annoying towards the end!

Awesome maternity pants and great price! I think it's funny too when girls don't want to wear maternity clothes, with the way they make them these days they are so cute and trendy AND COMFY! So way to rock your maternity jeans :)

I can't wait to find out if your little one is a girl or boy. Having already done some shopping for him/her is the right choice. ;-) I'm guessing girl. :-)
