My Super Bowl Sunday

I've spent the last few days in a gown...
No, not a ball gown, a hospital one.
It was like a vacation having one baby, lying in bed and eating meals,
but it was also a little like being in prison (since I couldn't leave the 3rd floor).

SHEARLING VEST - Bernardo (via Loehmanns)
BLUE MATERNITY SHIRT - Pea in the Pod
BLACK DENIM LEGGINGS - Hue
BLACK BOOTS - BCBGeneration


Here's the "Inspiration Monday" outfit I wore on Saturday (my last "maternity" one maybe ever!). We went to Target, I cleaned up the spare bedroom, then ate a huge bowl of frozen yogurt. Afterwards I felt a little guilty so I did some push-ups, light weights and squats. Camouflage teased me that I was going to make the baby come out.  Oops...

It's a BOY!!!

Baby "Bucket" (nickname c/o Princess Sparkles)
Born at 5:22am on February 5, 2012
(sorry Frannie, he didn't quite make it to your birthday)

I'm going to be a little busy but I promise I'll be back soon to check out what everyone else is up to!  Hope you all had an exciting Super Bowl Sunday too!!!

Yay! Congratulations Claire! What a cute baby! I was kind of guessing you must have delivered. You are fabulous from first term all the way to the last. And you're always so inspiring for me as a stay home mom, to look good even though we don't go to office. And I'm always amazed how you managed the kids, home and blogging. Have a really restful time Claire! Looking forward to you coming back.
