Two Things

I was telling a friend today it's that time of year that two things happen to me: I decide I want a baby like right now and that I only want to wear sweaters and jeans. Since 9 months stands in the way of the first thing happening, I shall go with a simple pair of jeans and a sweater. It's the cheaper alternative, really. 

Also, this is not an announcement that I am having a baby. But this is an announcement that at some time in my life I will hopefully have a baby around Christmas time. Till then, I shall hold my dog baby tight and dress him in children's clothing and wigs.

  3. Haha you're hilarious. I don't have any pets but I've been on the lookout for a Christmas sweater for my parent's cat. Animals belong in clothes. We don't walk around naked, do we? No, we wear clothes and even blog about it. So animals should, too. At least wear clothes, if not blog about it. ;)

    Love love love that sweater, by the way. So cute.

    If the thing about your dog baby in clothes and wigs is true, which it probably isn't, then you must post photos online.

  5. Oh, I feel exactly the same way. Christmastime is the only time when I can honestly picture myself wanting a baby. Giving presents and dressing cute kids up in winter clothing is the best.

    Also, I am obsessed with those shoes! Are those cutouts or studs?

  6. 1. My dog baby doesn't cry or keep me up at night - and she totally looks adorable in Christmas clothing - so I'm with you there.
    2. I love your sweater AND your jeans. I really need to get in on the boyfriend fit thing. Two years late in the game.

  7. & I thought I was the only one... I always want to send out those sweet little announcement-picture-Christmas-card-thingys, they are too adorable. Alas, I'm not pregnant (on purpose), but my friend is & she got to send out those card-thingys, so I shall live vicariously through her! 

    Oh, & love your shoes!

  8. I still think of the lost, crazed poodle sign you posted here. Maybe he would have been cuter in a wig.

  9. Please post your dog outfits and wigs.  Maybe he needs a blog too???

  10. lol I'm trying to picture the dog with the wig. I love that sweater.

  21. Aww, my daughter was born 10 days before Christmas and it is so fun...plus it's ideal that you're not in your third trimester when it's sweltering hot summer weather :)  Love those booties - cannot believe they are from Payless!! :)

  30. Great sweater! I love it when you dress casual. It makes my casual look frumpy, but I'm okay with that. I just need to find cuter shoes w/o heels b/c heels and my feet are not friends. 

    ReplyDelete
  31. Feeling the same things around here, too! We're contemplating our 3rd, and all I want to wear is sweaters and jeans! But I only have a couple of sweaters - might need to shop!

I'm happy to hear you LIKE the idea of having a Christmas baby! Mine's a gem who turns one on Christmas Eve, and was a fantastic little Santa surprise. Plus I'd love to see 6 mos of maternity posts from you!

  68. I absolutely LOVE the shoes & the sweater! Way cute!

  69. I usually just create a Pinterest board dedicated to babies / baby clothing / baby style / baby room decor / baby activities and that makes my desire for children go away. Also I realize I'm 19 and can barely manage to put gas in my car let alone care for a human being. But ya know. 

    Cute outfit. As usual.

    Are you planning to reinstate 30 for 30? I only discovered it after the last one ended, and I, and I am sure many others, love the idea.

  73. Love that sweater! I want it! And your booties are cute too. By the way, you're not the only one who treats their fur baby as a human baby. My little Todd eats it up!

  76. This is one of my absolute favorites. You look so darling all the time but there's something so feminine and graceful you've added to the basic sweater and jeans.

  87. Well, you are just stupid adorable.  And I'm jealous because I'd like to dress like you do, and look like I just walked out of someone's catalog, but my shape and size is all wrong (I can wear a girls' size 14 jeans because I'm tiny and only 5'4" but I'm long-waisted and have superlong monkey arms.  So nothing fits right.  Ever.)

    So where do I start if I want to look cute but don't know how???????

    And you do NOT want a baby a Christmastime.  I only say this because I was once pregnant at Christmastime (my daughter's birthday is January 8) and watching everyone have holiday food and wine and drinks while I couldn't even sit comfortably made me depressed.  In my opinion, it would be much better to have a baby in fall so that by the time Christmas comes, you can dress the baby in awesome clothes AND have all the fun that comes with the holidays.  :-)

  90. Is it wrong that I want you to have a baby just so I can ooh and aaah over your maternity fashion? Of course even if you got busy rightthissecond it wouldn't do me any good since I'm already 7 months along. Ah well.
