Welp folks, I've done it again. Run off and not posted for a million days. I'm truly sorry. You're never far from my heart and since getting pregnant aka puking my guys out, and getting out of the habit, its been really hard to stay on top of it!!! And I really haven't done much thrifting due to the fact that I just don't know what to buy!!! I am definitely on the up and up with the sickness though, so lets pray it stays that way.

My boobs got too big for most of my clothes prior to my belly getting in the way, which was really frustrating.:) I know I'm probably the ONLY person on the planet to say that, but I really don't mind being smaller chested and every single sundress of mine turned me into a whore, rather than a nice lady in a sundress. So. Its been a challenge finding things at thrift stores, but I will admit that its been mostly my stubbornness about not wanting to buy new clothes that I won't wear much after the pregnancy that has kept me from finding things.

As most of you probably know by now, we are having a GIRL.:) I am SO SO SO excited. I was completely convinced it was a boy but now, I'm so completely in love with having a girl that I think it would be hard to be immediately excited if she popped out a boy.:)

Her name is Britt Louise. Not Brittany or Brittanica (yes, someone has actually asked me that) - just Britt. Eric's middle name is Britt and Louise is my mom's middle name. I absolutely LOVE that she is named after her daddy and Nana.:) I wouldn't have it any other way.
On top of being a horrible thrifter/blogger, these are my first belly pictures. I really have only popped out the past couple weeks and felt like there wasn't enough to show before, but I promise to be better at all of the above. I am 24 1/2 weeks today and can't believe I have another 3 1/2 months to go but at the same time, can't believe its only 3 1/2 months before she's here!!!
I found this dress at the Goodwill the other day for $4.50. I actually think it might be a bathing suit coverup. Well, not anymore.:) Its super comfy and perfect for a growing belly. I love that it doesn't have a tie in the back. I personally don't like tiebacks - it SCREAMS maternity to me.
Overall update: met with my midwife for the first time yesterday (I just switched from a doctor to a midwife, which also switched me to a different hospital) and I LOVE her. She is exactly what I want and talking with her actually made me excited to give birth. I'm naive, I know.:) I've gained 12 lbs which is just so weird. I haven't weighed this much since my Jr. Year of college so its definitely a funny feeling.:) I am getting more and more uncomfortable sleeping - its been rough the past couple nights. I'm convinced it has more to do with our bad mattress that it does me being pregnant, but I'm sure the combination doesn't help.
Okay I think thats all for now. We are starting on Britt's room this weekend and I'm SO excited. I ordered her bedding yesterday and it got me SO excited!!!:) Love you all (for those who still read this, and thanks for your patience with me!!!:)


  1. You look beautiful! I'm sure Eric is glad to have both of you home :)

  2. AHHHHHHH!!! omg this made me want to see you even more now! you're ADORABLE! love :)

  3. You look gorgeous, the colour REALLY suits you.

  4. Anna, you look wonderful! I am so excited for you guys!

  5. It may sound silly coming from a blog friend, but I was planning on e-mailing you soon to make sure everything was going ok. As for being afraid to buy things you wont wear again. Buy it, wear it while you can, and give a generous donation back to Goodwill. consider it a good deed and make peace with it. You know someone else will find it and fall in love.

    (or find a consignment shop and make a little "after baby clothes" money)

  6. You all are too sweet. Thank you for your kind words.:) And Rachel, you are such a good blog friend. Seriously.:) I'm just a horrible blogger.:)

  7. anna! so cute... love the preggo pics. i, too, am wondering if it's the mattress or me, but having trouble sleeping! must be the 5-6 month pregnant blues...haha

  8. you look GREAT! love love love your preggo belly. Britt is popping out just like phoebe did - kinda long instead of a basketball.:) you're such a cutie. love you!

  9. YaY!! you have a belly. That color suits you and you look amazing. How exciting to think in several months you will have an adorable baby girl.
    thank you for the update.

    try getting some extra pillows between your legs when you are sleeping on your side, they will help out alot.
