a jumble

Monday, July 18

Dress: c/o Ruche, Sweater: Target, Watch: Gift, Necklace: c/o Pree Brulee, Sunnies: Cassettes
I would just like to announce that I wore this dress to a BBQ, where I had a plateful of fruit salad, beans, BBQ chips and lots of stuff with mustard and ketchup on it ... and I did not have ONE spill. Proud moment in the history of me and white clothing. Proud moment.

In other news, I think I'm finally ready to drop dead. If you hear from me at all this week it'll be a dang miracle. So if you happen to get lonely, you can just picture me stomping and sweating around campus, typing furiously behind my computer, or hucking piles of stuff into cardboard boxes. That's bound to make anyone feel better.

I think baby can sense how this weeks been going though. Like last night, when husband and I were having serious conversations in bed, husband laid his hand on my belly and baby butterfly kicked both of us furiously for a solid 2 minutes. Like he wanted to say "you can do it Mom and Dad!" We both went to sleep with smiles on our faces. Already, he's our little sunshine.

Anyway, Happy Monday Friends!
{P.S. If you just so happen to like my dress, you are gonna LOVE Ruche's newest lookbook. Launching later today! The photography is heaven sent I tell you}

Good luck with finals and packing!

Though I am rather sad that you're moving farther away from California and not towards it. *grins* That would have been awesome.

Hah! That is indeed a proud moment because I truly can't imagine the mess I would make wearing all white to a bbq! You are brave! I guess if it were me, I'd do the same if it's something I really want to wear. The dress is gorgeous on you!

That is a gorgeous outfit & dress. Yes, I would probably spill something down me too ... something red, like tomato sauce usually.

but you can do it, for sure! you're so close to being done and then you and loverboy can go set up your new home, with a room for baby included :)

Lou said...

Woop woop, well done on not spilling anything. I tend to be pretty good, but my other half - every meal has to share it with his clothing. It does make me laugh.

Hope your week isn't too stress full.

Cori said...

I'm impressed! I went to a barbecue the other day sporting a brand new floaty white top, took the first bite of a hotdog and squelched ketchup all down myself.

Husband's response: "Already??". It wasn't a question of "if", but more of "when", it seems.

I saw this "clothing competition" and thought of you. Show a pic of yourself wearing red, white or blue tshirt and have a chance to win free clothing (from the Olsen twins, no less?). Umm, hello Daybook? This may be your calling. I found it on people.com
