a mixed bag

thumbs up to finishing the first draft of the article i was seriously stressing about:

thumbs down to no longer having a good excuse to work from home.

excited to have decided to book the [short!] trip to LA 2 weekends from now

not too excited to have been woken up by a stealth bout of [very early] morning sickness that left me vomiting pure gastric acid at 4:30 am. [really REALLY hoping this is not a harbinger of what is to come.]

loving the entire missoni for target line!

i want!!

not at all loving the thought of being hit with a category 2.

come ON, irene . . .

because it is important to end on a positive note:

thrilled with my first TOMS purchase

comfortable AND sparkly!

8 1/2 weeks

because the progress pictures have to start somewhere . . .

nice face, SHU


not much action yet. but it’s coming . . .

i think i will do pictures every 3 weeks or so . . . we’ll see how things go! oh, and thanks for all of your feedback on yesterday’s pregnancy weight gain query; i am going to take your advice to heart and try not to worry about it — especially not at this point! it sounds like a lot of people don’t follow the ‘textbook’ pattern, and the truth is that every body [and every pregnancy] is different.

    Oh nooooo! I was so hoping you wouldn’t have to deal with morning sickness – crossing fingers this was an isolated occurrence 🙁 Loving the sparkly Toms – I might need to get some soon.

    Lol…"come on Irene"…I have walking around "singing" that! Hey it fits…;) My aunt that lives in Wilmington just left Tuesday to back to Wimington, I’m kinda expecting to see her again this weekend if they end up evacuating them.

    Those Toms shoes are too cute, I’m thinking I need a pair! Are they super comfy? I tried on my cousin’s a few weeks ago, but it was a day or so after my daddy died…so I can’t remember how they felt on my feet…:(

    I had no idea TOMS made heels. On-line shopping right now…

    And congrats on getting your draft done – that must be such a relief!
