I know this outfit doesn't look like much, but during these last few days of pregnancy it's a mission to find clothes than fit, much less go together. Oddly enough, none of the items I'm wearing are maternity pieces. Thanks to the cold front we've been experiencing in my neck of the woods, I was able to wear this blazer for the first time, after having it sit in my closet for six months. I was so determined to wear it to church service yesterday. Apparently I wasn't the only one who came up with this "genius" idea because everyone who had a red blazer wore one, lol. The Christmas program was so much fun and naturally the children stole the show!
Church was followed by Pre-Christmas dinner at Cousin Kim's moms house. Any time with my family is a good one, although truthfully many of us need to be institutionalized. We're all very intelligent and calm people separately but when we're all together it's as if we share one brain. It get's very loud, we all start spilling the tea and you need to be able to take a joke or two. I laughed so hard last night I had to run to run to the potty before it was too late (ahhhhhh, the joys of pregnancy). Completely out of control!
For my hair, I slicked it down the night before with the Ampro Gel. I'm usually an Eco-Styler Gel user, but I'm fed up with the flaking. I love this style! It's so easy to do if you're a natural looking for a way to get your hands out your hair for a few days, and even easier if you're hair is already straight from a relaxer. I meant to film a tutorial for you yesterday, but as I was setting up I realized the camera battery was dead. In the meantime, you can use this past post as a guide.
Anyhoo, if you celebrate Christmas I hope you have a wonderful time with your family tomorrow. If you have other traditions, I wish you safety and lots of love as well. Also, I'd like to wish my Aunt Annie a Happy Birthday today who just launched her blog "Live, Love, Laugh"! And also stop by "Eat 2 Live Beautiful" by my cousin Zenann, a blog that was launched over the weekend as well. You may remember her from the video my husband and I filmed with her and her husband called "Miscarriage During Marriage". Check my family out and tell them that I sent you :)
MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY HOLIDAYS
TO YOU AND YOURS
