weekend

Monday, September 19

 Skirt: Gap, Belt: Thrifted, Blazer: H&M, Shirt: F21, Necklace: c/o LeMode Accessories, Glasses: Target
It was a slow, semi-pathetic weekend over here at the Poulton house. Husband had a minor procedure done on his toesies so there was lots of time spent chattin' it up in the bathroom while he soaked his feet in an Epson salt bath. {Somehow the bathroom is always where we have our best conversations. We just love it in there SOOOOO much.} We won't mention the fact that the removal of his bandages and a look at his toes caused immediate sweating, nausea and a ghostly pale face. Because we have full faith that husband's stomach can handle ALL things. Even birth. Right? Right.

The rest of the weekend was spent around our table, and on the couch, rock-paper-scissoring each other to see who was gonna be the one to get dinner out of the oven - the one who can't walk, or the one who has no center of gravity. That, and Dr. Dan {that's husband} discovering new ways to conquer my acid reflux at 4 in the morning. {2 glasses of milk, and 2 glasses of water people - acid reflux gone, PLENTY of trips to the bathroom here to stay}

On a less-pathetic note, our bathroom conversations did produce this gem from husband:
You know, sometimes I just sit back in my chair at work and smile cause I'm so happy that's he's coming. I just want to meet him so bad. Sometimes I think that if I ever lost my job, or something really really bad happened ... it would be OK. Cause I'm so happy. I just love our family so much.
And I am again reminded that I rock at picking husbands. I KNEW he was the one. {And yes. I did just turn that into a "I was right" moment . It's my specialty}

I ♥ this look so much - I am truly convinced I want a striped blazer now (I've had my eye on one for a few weeks).
P.S. You are for sure the most stylish pregant lady EVER.x

Whitney & Devin said...

How cute is your belly!? Ugh my hubs has a weak stomach too... I am convinced that he will be on the floor needed smellin' sauce to wake him up when we decide to have kids... he fainted when he was a kid when his dad pulled his tooth... I think there is hope for your man :-)

When I´m pregnant I would like to look as amazing as you.
The blazer is great.

I love the stripes! (Must get to an H&M asap even though my closet is full of stripes). That was really sweet what your husband said!

Elena @ The Art of Making a Baby said...

You look adorable! You have one of the cutest bellies I've seen :)

And the husband's comment sounds like something my hubby would say. Makes you melt doesn't it?

I am at 22 weeks now and cannot wait until I am at the point where you are!

Dani Ploscik said...

You have seriously got to be the chic-est preggo ever. So stylish! I have a question... do you keep all of the outfits you wear? Or do you get rid of them after you post them? I just can't imagine how big your closet must be! :-)

Jhan said...

Haha. I love that you play rock, paper scissors to see who get dinner out of the oven. You guys are so sweet.

I love the blazer!

Your husband will be fine! Mine faints at the sight of ketchup, but has managed to make it through two births. I mean sure, he had to get a chair and a cold compress, but he made it and was there for me the whole time.

{molly beth} said...

Sounds like an amazing weekend, Syd. My hubs and myself spent the weekend away in Portland---It was much needed! I love your outfit---B&W is always a good call.

I'd love for you to stop by my bloggity blog.

Aw! You guys are so adorable it makes me want to puke (that is a compliment, not a complaint). This will be the best time of your lives, trust me. I love your pretty pictures. I am done having kids, but if I ever ended up pregnant again, I would pin all your outfits and try to be as stylish a pregnant woman as you are. Glamorous darling!

Jess said...

You are the cutest pregnant woman ever and your husband's comment was too sweet. He'll be the best Daddy ever.

Sarah-Anne said...

totally in love with this outfit. like, really truly in love with it :D it looks stunning on you as well!

Teresa said...

#1 It's funny that you have to pose with your hands under the bump for us to know you're about to drop a bouncing baby boy. Black is slimming for most but magically disappearing for you.
#2 SUPER CUTE Preg-couture. You really need to start your own line. (pssst...you have a sewing machine now. It's in your laundry room. Downstairs. On the shelf. In a box. I saw it. It's lonely.)
#3 Have you instated the Dr. Dan passout plan?
#4 I love you two (three) SOOOO much! XOXOXO

Laura said...

"Awwww" to your last quote :) Seriously give husband a pat on the back for keeping the standard high.

And cute pics by the way. I love wearing maxi's to church. Gotta love those "church pajamas" like Elaine says on Clothed Much.

Jennah Watters said...

TO get rid of acid reflux with a little less liquid: warm milk and honey. I swear it works! Plus it's super delicious. I was having it for dessert every night for a long while.

You look fabulous! The pregancy suits you well...I would almost say that you look like a movie star :) All the best for you and the baby!

My hubbie almost fainted during a birthing video, but when it was time for the real thing he was right there holding my hand and stayed standing through the whole thing! I'm sure your's will be fine, don't worry....

Cristiana Nunes said...

Just came acroos your blog and this post and I found this outfit so chic! You looking pregnant only makes you even more beautiful and elegant!

Sierra said...

That is because we love to be right :P I love your top, glasses and necklace. Rock/paper/scissor is the best way to settle things. or picking a random number and see who can guess closest.But you can't do that if there is only two people...so yeah rock/paper/scissors wins!!! Sierra

Vietje said...

i just 'met' this site, i like your style very much, and your even very pretty pregnant, i wish i was as thin as you during mine!

Sara B said...

One of the cutest preggo outfits (or just outfits) I've ever seen. Nice work!!

m! said...

I have an acid reflux solution for you. My husband gets heartburn and used to quite frequently. This home remedy works quickly every time. Get 4-5 oz of cold water, mix 1-2 tsp of baking soda into the water. Stir it up and then drink it down. It won't taste good, but it should work fast. That is, if it's all kosher for a pregnant belly! Good luck, you look adorable.

Brooke said...

ADORE your outfit. Wish I would have found you earlier. You are adorable and inspiring. I still try to look cute in pregnancy every day too...sometimes it is not as easy.. :)

And that hubby is pretty darn sweet. :)
