i’m really bad at this “wannabe fashion blogger” stuff, but i don’t even care. blogging is something i have thought about for years and one day, when i get better i will look back at all these embarrassing photos and think to myself that i did everything that i had to when starting out in something new. just like when it comes to photography! i look back at some of my photos and think to myself, “how did i get paid for that?” but i did. and i worked hard. and things got better. i got better. i got bigger. and now photography is my job.
i bought these cute overalls from h&m in a size 4 and had to exchange them for a size 6 and i still can’t button the top button (enter eye roll emjoi here). i am in that awkward stage of, “is she pregnant or is that a beer belly?” whelp, it’s definitely not a beer belly, but instead there are two growing babes in there. i constantly have to remind myself of that (there are TWO) because the changes that are happening to my body are pretty interesting. to be honest, i have packed on the pounds and it’s kind of hard for me. i have never in my life weighed what i weigh now. i obviously know that gaining weight is part of pregnancy and that it is good for the babies, but i guess i feel like, “come on mariann… these babies only weigh 1.5 oz each… so why have you gained 8lbs?!”
we have so much to do before the babies get here and things are moving fast! i’ve been hoping to get it all done, but i am so unmotivated! i don’t know what it is? i am definitely going to designate a whole blog post all about things i swore i would never do while pregnant, because this would be on here. i always said i would never be lazy or just sit around, especially when there is so much to do! but if you need me, you can most likely find me sitting around, being lazy!
right now we are more than halfway done with painting our door and window trim in our home and luckily my dad said he would help finish it so hopefully that will be done soon. however, i also have a whole list of things that i want done before the babies come… such as putting turf in the dog run, wainscoting our whole house, painting (and have tuned) a piano that i bought, finishing our bedroom… which means buying a dresser, nightstands, and an electric fireplace, john wants to repaint all the cabinets in our home, and then on top of that we need to buy cribs and get the babies room started and finished. this is all doable, right?
these photos took a major amount of airbrushing in photoshop because my skin is out of control!!! why?!? did anyone else’s skin get really bad in pregnancy? i have never had great skin, but was thinking that once i got pregnant my skin would clear up. nope! quite the opposite, actually. it’s so much worse than it has ever been. and you can’t really use much when you are pregnant, but what i can use, i am using. i am really trying anything at this point. when does that ‘glowing pregnancy’ thing that everyone talks about kick in? (more eye rolling) if anyone has any tips or tricks please send them my way!!
