Waiting for Isaiah

Dress: Mr Price Maternity; Shoes: Cotton On; Neckpiece: Mr Price; Bag: YDE


I go on maternity leave today, and will be off from work for a while. I look forward to getting to know Isaiah during that time but for now, we wait for him to arrive! With just over two weeks left, we're so excited to meet our little guy. 

I may not post as often, but of course I will keep in touch. I'm addicted to Instagram, so that's a good place to start - follow me here. Tweet me here.  







Thanks to Lerato for these pictures.

Awkward & Awesome Wednesday

Skirt: Jay Jay's; Top: Pure; Shoes: ALDO;
Neckpiece: Sass Diva; Earrings: Mr Price; Watch: Gifted Michael Kors


Awkward:
- The bump's shape these days. It has a life of its own - oh, but it does :)
- My fabulous colleague telling me that my face and neck is big. Like that of a taxi driver. Um, okay. Thanks.
- Random bruises on my legs. 
- And bruised ankles each night, really weird. 
- Heartburn. I have myself (and Hot Tamales) to blame.
- Sitting down.
- Getting up.
- Those bathroom breaks! Really hectic lately.
- Tired eyes.
- Still waiting for the cot. Would be really awkward if Isaiah decides to come early.
- Referring to my pregnancy, or bump, or... whatever - some people say "shame". Why shame?


Awesome:
- Knowing your 'good side'.
- Hot Tamales. Heartburn and all.
- Water.
- Maternity leave, which kicks off this week!
- That means baby is practically two weeks away.
- A fan.
- Chinese food. Assorted Chow Mein to be exact. 
- Naps.
- Little elbow pokes.
- Love letters from family and friends, to our boy. Makes my heart happy.
- So much closer to fitting into high-waist everything again!
- Oh, and those dresses I have yet to wear... soon.

Thankful Tuesday

Skirt: Pure; Layered Tops: Jay Jay's; Shoes: Nine West; Bag: Sowearto; Sunglasses: ALDO; Jewelry: Gifted


[Things I'm thankful for.]
People who have patience with me. Husband's on top of the list, of course.
Husband, for a zillion other reasons.
Just three weeks until Isaiah. Three. This is huge.
Maternity leave.
Parents. Especially the kind who assemble prams, wash tiny clothes, and and and...
Friends with life experience. Really helpful.
Rain. It's such a relief after a hot day, and it's bliss to sleep through!
Opportunity. Take your chances.
The pillow that fits perfectly between my knees. 
Spontaneous date nights.

What are you thankful for today?

Favourite Two

You know I love Husband's style, so I had to show you what he wore last weekend. He's such a fashionista  ;)
 
 
 Saturday looked like this...
 
Forgive the poor quality of these shots.
 I know now not to take pictures in dark corners of the parking lot!
 





And here's Sunday...




 
 

Thanks for coming by. Have a super weekend, and in the words of the Mr - if you're feeling down, dress up!

Old Faithful

Dress: Pure; Shoes: Mr Price; Belt: Fashion Express; Watch: Gifted Michael Kors


Just a quick post of what I'm wearing today - a dress that has proven faithful to the bump. Love when your clothes do not betray you!

Oh, the blog has gone beyond the 70 000 [views] mark. Thank you so much for always coming by, I appreciate it!

Thankful Tuesday

Dress & Grey top (worn underneath): Pure; Blazer: Jay Jay's; Shoes: Cotton On
Bag: Sowearto; Sunglasses: ALDO; Neckpiece: Sass Diva; Earrings: Mr Price


[Things I'm thankful for.]
Husband, who headed out at 4am this morning to get me painkillers. Love him.
Everyone that made Isaiah's shower super special on Sunday.
...especially my mom (and dad!) who worked behind the scenes.
Water for those dehydrated early hours of the morning - just after a bathroom run. The irony.
Only four weeks until Baby! 
A house full of baby stuff.
Still being able to cook Husband a meal that has him asking for seconds. Oh yeah.
Morning, after a not-so-fun night.



The bump at 36 weeks!
