Look! Little tiny baby bump!
I am LOVING the second trimester! Finally, I don't need a nap everyday! Okay, it's not that I mind nap-taking, but Boo's nap times are my crafting times, me-times, and cleaning times. Yes, by the end, I even missed being able to clean.
So what have I been doing with my newly-regained couple hours of quiet? Well, I've made two and a half of the skirt I showed you last week. (I now have a green skirt, too, and a waistband for a black/white skirt.) And I've spent hours scouring the web for great maternity tutorials. (If you're interested in what I've found, I've pinned them here. Not everything on this board is for maternity, but currently most of it is.)
I also made a maternity band (from this tutorial), which I love. You can see it poking out under my shirt in the picture above--it just looks like a cami, right? But no, that wonderful invention is holding up my unbuttoned non-maternity jeans. Because I'm still in the awkward too-big-for-regular-clothes-but-not-big-enough-for-maternity-clothes stage. So I love this little guy. And it was really super easy to make, so be sure to check out the tutorial--it's definitely worth your time.
And speaking of things I love during maternity time, these are my favorite summer maternity shoes:
You got it--$2 flip-flops.
Because who wants to have to deal with tying shoes or buckling straps when you're 9 months pregnant? Not me. And it's (soon-to-be) summer, so flip-flops are totally appropriate. When I was pregnant with Boo, I wore flip-flops almost every single day. Those poor sandals have gone to Shoe Heaven (may they rest in peace), so now I'm looking forward to breaking in these new guys. Come on, warm weather! I'm ready!
