This weekend was pretty good. Friday I had to work late so I pretty much came home, had dinner and went to bed. Saturday we went to the Maryland Reneaissance Festival with our friends. It was the last weekend and packed with people, which tired me out faster than I expected. We stayed a couple of hours, and then headed home and my sister and I had dinner with my mom and her boyfriend.

Picture 012Picture 020These pictures are from Saturday – In the first one, I was taking an empty beer bottle (not mine) to the recycling bin and bringing in the broom and my husband thought it was pretty funny. You can see how the house remodel is going – the whole front of the house is all torn up, there's a 4′ ditch around the house perimeter (which may be filled today if the county comes by to approve what has been done thus far), and a huge pile of clay in the middle of the yard. Definitely not pretty, but it will be once it is complete! 🙂

The second picture is a picture of me with my sister at the Ren Fest.

So for the Ren Fest I wore my black jersey dress from Boob Maternity, orange crinkle scarf from Banana Republic, tan boots from Bern, silver necklace, cuff and hoops. Hair down, simple makeup. I knew there would be a lot of walking and standing and my Duo boots are by far the most comfortable footwear that still fits me!

Sunday was cleaning day. We had the Ravens and Redskins games on the TV, but pretty much did chores throughout the entire time. It felt good to get so much accomplished.

    I have read your blog off and on for awhile, and today I was going over some recent posts, and was struck by how chic you look pregnant. I am a slightly plus size woman who is TTC, and I have looked at some of the options out there for pregnant women who aren’t itsy bitsy and been terrified. Can you recommend any favorite places to shop?

    You look adorable! I stopped by your blog a few times this past Feb/Mar so it’s been awhile and was pleasantly surprised to see you with the belly. Too cute. I am also a fellow D/M/V resident and admired your girl next door style. Can’t wait to see the baby fashions. :0)
