Well good news on the home front – the co-op approved our addition last night and supplied our contractor with a permit. Now we need approval from the county but that isn't a biggie at all – they know our town and co-op to be so anal they just sign it. This morning as I left for work, there were guys in my back yard digging holes for the footings/foundation/technical stuff to keep my new rooms from caving in. Contractor said the work will be done before Christmas. Talk about the best present EVER! 🙂

    Allie, you really do look fabulous! I think you pull off the polished but still youthful and fun look perfectly. I wish I had snagged that dress while it was still on their website.

    THanks for all the inspiration – we’re due about the same time and I get some great ideas here.

    Great news about your building work!

    Love this black dress and it always looks fresh on you no matter how much you wear it. Pregnancy must be a nightmare when it comes to dressing and getting the balance between looking fab and not buying too much stuff. You manage to pull it off fabulously!
