Somehow even though I barely fit into anything in my closet, I find myself wanting to dress up more now than ever!  I don’t know if it’s just that I’m trying to take advantage of my last few months of freedom before the baby gets here, or if I’m just generally feeling excited about life right now (or maybe a little of both!), but I’m bursting with energy lately.

A *lot* of that excess energy has gone into our house — I’ve been on a rampage lately!  People say that being pregnant makes you prone to “nesting” and it is SCARY how true that is!  Lately it seems like I can’t walk through our house without finding a dozen things that I need to tinker with right now… and then spending the rest of my day getting them done.  It’s seriously compulsive!  I guess the good news is that our house will look amazing just in time for the baby to turn everything upside down!

I’ve also spent quite a bit of time figuring out how to dress my growing bump!  I’m starting to get really into it now, especially as it becomes more pronounced.  This dress is actually a non-maternity dress, but it’s empire-waisted enough that it still works, and the pale pink color is perfect for these pre-Valentine’s Day weeks.

But more than anything, this dress needed some great accessories.  BHLDN’s Seapearl bracelet was basically perfect for this look — just delicate enough to add the perfect finishing touch.  I’ll be breaking it out again on Valentine’s Day!  (Hint, hint, Chad — where are we going?)

    you look so awesome, especially that last picture. You look so happy, too.

    Believe it or not I didn’t nest for either pregnancy. My extent of nesting was one baby-related shopping trip a week or two before Alexander came, and one shopping trip for storage stuff for our basement a month or so before Athena came (because we were going to basically move the office to the basement so Athena could take that room.) Most people nest but some people do not. 😉
