favorites and obsessions

(as always, more faves at my ye olde flickr favorites page)

as i mentioned in the most recent wardrobe_remix(ers) o' the week post, i've been quite busy this week with personal stuff. mostly work, dr. & midwife appointments, and the like. and just resting some. so i am a little slow with things like etsy love posts and such, and for that, my apologies! will of course resume posting with some regularity soonish...my backlog of to-be-posted posts can attest to the fact that i have at least been making a stab at this blogging thing! life just happens. :P


but on with the obsessions:
-the biggest one, the one that's been unspoken to a large degree and as yet unmentioned here but HUGE for me this week: we found out that we are having a little GIRL! i am so insanely happy about that, i can hardly even speak. now that i've had a little tiny peek at her (via ultrasound this past monday), i've fallen in love with her even more, and i feel like i can actually start preparing for her arrival with the making of twee baby dresses, knit or crochet garments, blankies, and other needs. i had sort of had a moratorium against making such until this juncture, out of fear (long story). the little sea monkey seems happy...she's kicking me with vigor regularly for a couple weeks now!
-finding clothes that actually fit. i've finally started to bust out belly-wise and regular jeans and skirts just don't cut the mustard anymore. if you can believe it, i was still wearing my pre-pregnancy jeans somewhat comfortably up until about a week ago (with some clever macgyvering, natch). but such rigging measures have finally lost their efficacy. *sniffle* i'm slowly acquiring new garments that more comfortably accommodate my changing shape. i am wanting to write about my experiences thus far and more about pregnancy style. i hope to do so again sooner rather than later. so many ideas, yet, so many things to do and too little time! ha.
-going to hawaii at the end of april. oh yeah!!! looking way forward to that. resting and relaxing on the beach, woo! with a ginormous belly, woo! it will be good. i need a break from life and i think that little vacay will be just the ticket for me and the mans (and a calm before the storm that shall be a new baby in our lives).
-and, reading. voraciously. right now it's born in the usa. it's deep, it's medical, it's kinda political. it's sort of my regular fare at the moment (baby/birth literature). unsurprisingly.
(ok, it's almost all baby- or pregnancy-related. oops!)
