I bought this dress a few months back with Christmas money because I thought it would be the perfect maternity dress and it definitely is. I absolutely love the linen fabric, tattered stitching, and the fact that I feel like a Little House on the Prairie babydoll when I wear it. Even before my belly popped I loved it. It's definitely a challenge keeping it unwrinkled though. I ironed it that day and as you can see, it looks like I didn't. Just have to embrace those linen wrinkles I guess ;)
One of my all time favorite shoe brands Loly in the Sky sent over this adorable pair of flats recently and they are absolutely perfect for spring. Basically ever pair of staple flats I wear are from Loly in the Sky. There shoes are classic, adorable, unique and so super comfy. Can't get enough of them so I am of course always up for a new pair as I have a tendency to wear favorite shoes until they are so dirty that they are unrecognizable. My first pair I got from them over 2 years ago is still going strong, just muddy as all get out because I wore them for anything and everything. I'll try to be nicer to this pair, but I make no promises.
Things have been crazy crazy around these parts lately. I swear this weekend was utter madness. I feel like listing everything insane that happened this weekend so I'm just gonna do that. So first off, we lost power late Thursday night and it was out for half the night. The next morning we had to get up super early and go to my midwife for my glucose test and bloodwork. After returning home, Grant realized the power outage did damage to his computer. After hours of investigating, he found that both his harddrives were fried. So that was fun! That night we spent a small fortune rebuying harddrives and promptly upon returning home, Marshmallow started acting funny. She didn't want to eat treats, play or do anything besides tuck her tail and lie down shaking really hard. After a while of trying to figure out what was going on, we ended up taking her to the puppy emergency room. We were there for almost three hours making it a super duper late night, but by the time we left, she was doing much better and the vet determined that she was having back issues. We aren't entirely sure if that was the problem 100%, but it was his best guess. Regardless, we are thankful she is back to normal, but she gave us quite the scare. Next day, car trouble strikes, oh and the fun part is that the mechanic cannot figure out what the issue is. So it still hasn't been fixed. Then Grant leaves for the evening and I decide to clean the house while outside there is some crazy wind taking over Indianapolis. While standing by the window vacuuming, I saw our very very large tree next to the house come crashing down on part of our deck and garage into the driveway. It literally fell in the perfect place to cause as little damage as possible, because if that tree hit our house, it would have been catastrophic. We still have a lot of damage, but it could have been so much worse. This tree was gigantic. Needless to say, I was screaming bloody murder when I saw it happen and threw myself backwards cause I thought it was gonna hit the house. Where it landed was about 15 feet away from the house. Too close for comfort. Sunday was cleanup day and our awesome family came over to help get the mess cleaned up enough to be able to get into our garage. I couldn't get my car out until we moved all the limbs and chopped down the top of the tree. Shortly after that, we found out I failed my blood glucose test so I had to go back in to redo the test but with even more bloodwork, fasting, etc. Needless to say, I was already in a bad mood so this just pushed me over the edge. Yesterday was my second test and glory be, I passed and do not have gestational diabetes! That news came in this morning and hopefully signals the beginning of a better week. Hopefully ;)
