Six pounds of baby weight is nothing, in fact, the extra six pounds is kind of sexy-meow-prosh-num-nummies – but lady needs some new summer garb that will last as I grow this season with baby goodness. I’ve been so patient, tamed/leashed and caged that bitch, haven’t bought a gahddamn thing in 2mos.


Waiting-ever-waiting to see what happens with baby-belly, preg-bewbs and the rest of me (which is in stasis, ass-in-check, huzzah!). So you could say I’m materially starving ~
feed meeeeeeeeeeeee.


Empire cut tops & dresses + sweet shorts, skirts + funderthings + stretchy + jersey + lacy-lycra + cotton = not busting bank-wad on pieces I can’t keep when the baybay weight melts off in the new year. I’m’a g’wong strettchit this budgitch.


A pamphlet from 1944 shows how to make beautiful art using our favourite, stand-alone, most awesomest food – yes folks – BACON.


{I’m starting to believe I should have a weekly bacon feature on this blog…}


“White Art in the Meat Food Business. A Practical Handbook for Butcher, Pork Stores, Restaurants, Hotels and Delicatessens on How to Make Lasting and Transferable White Art Decorations out of Bacon Fat Back for Window Displays, Ornaments on Meat Food Cold Buffets and for Exhibits and Advertising”



How am I feeling these days? Bloated, fleshy, full, jiggly, chubby, excited, anxious, loving, sleepy, lazy and great J



Having slept all of mid-March to mid-April ~ literally, then terrorized my not-yet-hubby {the “nyhubby”} mid-April to mid-May, I finally seem to be balancing out. Hormones in check ~ Nubbin must have developed that helpful pituitary gland to relieve me (and Marco) of the hormone raging nasty I was feeling for a good time-chunk there. But we made it, through the slumbering & biochemistry warfare, to arrive here.


So what is here? Second trimester, my womb is filling with juicy baby goodness, doubling in size almost weekly, my brain is rather placid, I’m not even all that bored anymore. The asian food cravings have subsided (mostly), the replacement being all things chewy ~ gummy bears, swedish berries, sour peaches, gummy worms…


I’ve settled into a nice routine of work + nyhubby time + reading + spending time outside in the sun + seeing friends + pg-activities + taking lots of bubble baths. I’m nesting. I’m waiting for my 6-lb belly to pop out & look more like a baby bump. I’m anxious for the next ultrasound when we find out if Nubbin has an innie or outie. I’m counting down to November when we meet Nubbin.


I’m *gasp* chipper.
