Can you believe that there is actually a part FOUR of maternity clothes?
I think it’s a emotional thing for me. Like getting new clothes is a part of me getting a new identity. Gettting a new role. Getting a new job and a new life. It’s like when Julia Roberts really needed new duds because she stopped being a hooker. With everyone but Richard ‘gentle eyes’ Gere anyway. I am the same. I am no longer gonna be a hooker. I’m gonna be a mom. A MOM TO A HUMAN.
You would think I would have gotten used to that thought by now. But no. Even though I have given full hours, no… days fully dedicated to the realization that my life is gonna change forever….and not just that. My family, my priorities, and even my heart is even gonna get a full makeover. Will’s birthday will be like Extreme Makeover: Bower Edition. I know that I haven’t fallen head over heels for Will…not yet…but I’m praying that on that very special day, when I look at my baby boys face, and I hold him in my arms, that the transformation will be instantaneous. That I will fall. That I will fall so hard that every bone in my body will be broken for my little boy. That my heart will be paralyzed with love. That is my prayer.
I also pray for great sales at Gap after I deliver. Which brings us full circle. Ok. So back to the clothing. I wanted to show ya some of the beauties that I scored at Gap & Target. Everything was on sale…except for the boots. But all the Gap items were AT LEAST 50% off (most were more than 75% off!!!).
I really love the velour suit…it’ll probably be my ‘coming home unpregnant’ outfit. Plus it’s super slimming…which is pretty much on my desired-factor list (as well as every other woman’s). But my absolute favorite item so far? This sweater:
It’s soooo soft and comfy…and long in the back. Which is very important when you are me…my pants are constantly falling down…and frankly, this sweater helps me not moon anyone behind me. And eliminates the boyfriend’s urge to stick a finger in the plumber’s crack.
How this post went from clothing to newborn emotions to “credit-carding” is beyond me…but I deeply apologize 🙂
