Yesterday was Baby Flynn's final baby shower. My mom and her friend Amanada hosted such a lovely little event for me and the baby! We are seriously so lucky to have so many friends and family that love us and want to shower us with their time, attention and sweet gifts. It felt like such a wonderful way to end this journey and I'm over the moon with how everything turned out. I'll share more about the shower another day, don't worry! But this outfit is what I ended up wearing to the little shindig. I ended up tossing an oatmeal cardigan over it since the shower was indoors, but it felt really nice to wear a short, fit and flare dress again. Every time I'd look at myself in the mirror (from the front) I'd be like "Whoa! I don't even look pregnant!" ...And then I'd turn to the side and be like "WAHBAM!" haha! I'm in love with the oversized collar on this dress. I know Peter Pan collars are overwhelmingly twee, but it's such a change of pace from what I've been wearing recently. Don't get me wrong, maxi dresses are so comfortable! But this felt like a nice little pre-pregnancy throwback haha. I probably won't be able to nurse in something like this, so I might as well get a little bit of wear out of it while I can! To be honest this shouldn't even count as an outfit post because I'm wearing two articles of clothing... a dress and some sandals that you've seen a billion times. I guess fashion really isn't the focus of my blog anyway though, so whatever. (Let's get real: at this point my blog might as well be a "look at how I hold my bump" maternity blog haha! Bear with me!)
Mike, Toby and I spent the day traipsing around Nashville on Saturday, running errands, seeing friends, and trying to tie up some last minute details before we settle in for newborn life. I'm kind of stoked on how much we managed to get done in just a few hours! I feel like it was probably our last weekend outing before this kiddo comes. Maybe we can squeeze one or two more errand trips in, but even if we don't, I think we'll be okay. We headed over to my friend Jenna's house in the evening and she was kind enough to snap a few family photos of us in her lush backyard. I was sweating buckets though, so who knows how they turned out! We're sending off the film today so I guess we'll know in about 2 weeks or so! If we just get one good family photo I will be so stoked! We don't really even have any family pictures from our wedding, so I really really wanted to try and get at least one moment captured.
Today I'm hoping to work on the last couple design installations that I have, and churn out some nice progress on a logo client. After that I'm going to work on the nursery's final touches and shipping sign orders. I'm crossing my fingers I might be able to unload one last load of clothes on Kaelah's Closet before D-Day. I went through my closet the other day and found so many pieces that need to get the heave-ho. There are also a few pieces from my Stitch Fix hauls that weren't perfect, but were cheaper to keep than send back (thanks to the 25% discount) so they'll be in there, too. Let me know if any of you might be game for a Kaelah's Closet update and I'll try to make it a priority. Maybe it'll be a good use of time while the weather is gloomy and rainy outside. Anyway, here's to a new week! xo
