Remember When...

I remember back when I was in high school and early college and I thought it was really cute to show a little belly. Not a lot, just a little belly shirt with some jeans. A nice outfit. Perfectly acceptable for public. Apparently times have changed*. Last night I insisted on starting on the nursery paint. I really just wanted to see some of it on the wall because I am obsessive and COULD NOT WAIT another day. I changed into some painting clothes and got to work. Nick kept looking over and laughing at me and I kept being like, "Whhhhhat???" Finally he said he would go get the camera to show me...

oh. right...he then zoomed out to get a full body shot...For the record I would like to point out that I AM WEARING PAINTING CLOTHES. Actually, come to think of it, I have had those "painting pants" since I was 20, and yes they are totally stretch pants and no I cannot fit in ANYTHING else I had when I was 20, but still...STILL I find it impressive that I can get them over my 29 year old six month pregnant ass no matter how much belly may be hanging over. The shirt is Nicks...which does make it a little more embarrassing that it kept rolling up over the belly. Maybe I should invest in some larger t-shirts...

*for the record, I do know times have changed since the late 90's either way. Let me assure you that even pre-pregnancy I was not strolling around town in a belly shirt. Those days are long gone.


  1. I love this post. It is so funny and cute. I was looking at pictures the other day and showed them to my husband. I have a picture and I am showing a little bit of skin of course back then I did not have a belly. Now I wish I could have that part back a little bit. But instead I have a baby girl. Have a great day.

  2. I think you look so cute! I love it!

    How did the paint look on the wall?
