somegirl- Cute photos! It looks really beautiful there, so green!
coffee- I am also a (32)D/DD when not nursing or pregnant and I've always had trouble finding bras that fit and are comfy (if regular stores have a 32DD, chances are it is out of stock). I am still in nursing bras now that I got from the Bali/Hanes/Playtex outlet. I don't know if you have outlets around you, but that made these totally affordable and easy to find again. I imagine that they also have lots of options for non-nursing bras, I just never looked!
melly- Congrats on the boy, and glad you are well!
Calladona- I like the comparison picture! Take care of yourself. Hope the belt helps.
Cathy- Woohoo! Great news on the house! I hope the next steps are expedient and you are in there with your hands in the dirt in no time. And take care of yourself too (no more cat rodeo)!
Crunchy- Thanks for the tip on the sunflower butter, I haven't found one yet without sugar in it... I'll check out MaraNatha (I usually get their almond butter, don't know why I haven't seen sunflower). And hooray for lots of thumping and the return of your kids!
AFM- We finally have a break from visitors. The first one was a joy! But since then it has been more stressful than enjoyable. The last friend here was a vegetarian. I was a vegetarian for 8 years, but for some reason all I can think of right now is meat. I don't even eat that much meat on a daily basis, but when I realized I/we would be making veggie meals for five days I couldn't think of a single recipe that didn't start off with a large slab of meat! My poor friend! We made through though and ate a lot of delicious food.
I have been trying to do little things to get the gardens in and some stuff ready for spring and summer. DS and I got plastic over one bed to protect it from squirrels, dogs/cats, and frankly him! This afternoon I hope to get the wood cut for some raised beds.
I need help with maternity clothes... I have never been pregnant in the summer before. Usually I would wear cutoffs, khaki shorts, durable skirts, and t-shirts or loose cotton shirts in the summer. I am used to spending most of the days outside, in the garden, hiking, or with animals. All of the maternity clothes I have seen are business casual to fancy (definitely nothing I could wear in the dirt). I went to a couple of thrift stores with no luck. Now, I am at a loss... any suggestions?
