Hola, Monday

All dresses from the sale rack at A Pea in the Pod Maternity at Macy's Herald Square.

Because last week I finally realized any day now I could be having a baby, I decided to prioritize pre-labor tasks.

  1. Schedule hair appointment. I need bangs. My child cannot see me with a big forehead, not to mention grey roots.
  2. Get a mani/pedi. Doctors, doula, nurses, husband, family + feet in air. Maybe this should be #1.
  3. Get waxed. See above. I just don't know if I can handle the pain right now. Trying to save up the tolerance, you know?
  4. Buy coconut water. I'm not sure why, but I'm obsessed with having coconut water in my hospital bag.
  5. Make a couch cover. Again, why? Inexplicable.
  6. Blog, what to do?
  7. Finish baby room and figure out how to keep cats out of bassinet. Yes, this should be #1, but my mom's coming to town. Let's just say she's the Master Organizer/Iron Hand of Pet Discipline.

Let's talk #6. Blog postings will be reduced while I'm on leave, but should be published with new content about 2-3 times a week. I'm pre-posting, and am setting up some guest posts. I'll be back in the saddle around the holidays. And, because for months I've been wrapping up work projects and thus slack in visiting blogs, I'm looking forward to spending some time catching up. Of course, every time I talk to new moms about having time to do things during maternity leave, they laugh hysterically at me. Huh.

As my friend and stylist said to me a few weeks ago, if you didn't have that big ahem balancing out that belly, you'd topple over. So true.

1. You look like a maternity model. Seriously.
2. How are your ankles that skinny?
2b. How are your feet that skinny?
3. Totally LMAO about your mom being the iron hand of pet discipline.

If you blog doesn't get updated for like four months, we all understand. Tight hugs!!

(oh yeah and quick story...the first day that Mr. Lipstick and I were on our own after JBB was born, we managed to get out of bed and feed ourselves breakfast just as the five o'clock news was coming on. Yes, that would be the evening news.)

Wait, you're PREGNANT?

So excited for baby FH to arrive, beautiful! Will miss you, of course, but please keep us updated about the little one as best you can.

Lipstick - you're really good for a pregnant girl's ego!:) And mom, well she's a farmer's daughter so let's just say they aren't easily swayed by cute kittens. Love the evening news story!
Sal - thanks! And i'll post updates while gone, also.

I have a friend who also is pregnant and she was telling me how hard is to find fashion blogs with women pregnant..I just recommend your blog! You are fantastic!!

Wow. This is so exciting! But...what are we to do without your haute maternity outfit postings? :)

Dream Sequins: Surely soon some other nyc blogger will be pregnant?! Although I should probably be biting my tongue, right? :)
