I really didn't intend on watching the entire Academy Awards ceremony last night but, eh, I did... and I am certainly glad that I did because Lordy, Bette Midler belted out Wind Beneath My Wings and myself, along with the rest of the world, shed a tear over our joint memories of weeping over Beaches. But in any event, before the event, I was watching the red carpet for my favorite and least favorite looks of the evening. I have to say that I was a smidge disappointed with the selection I had to choose from this year but I managed to pull through ;-)
Olivia Wilde in Valentino- Not only does this dress have a 60's/Mod like vibe to it but dang girl, you look so amazingly beautiful and pregnant that I cannot stand it. She is a vision of loveliness. Dress is simple but really, her best accessory is that baby bump, which she wears so well.

I was recently introduced to a girly little deal site called Jane.com. At first, I was like "Eh, another daily deal site... do we need one?". This one is kind of special. There isn't extravagant merchandise, as in something that would break the bank, but there are cute little goodies that you can grab for nieces and nephews or a sweet add on to a friend's birthday gift. From accessories to doo dads, there is something for all of us sassy girls who need a sweet little pick me up with spending a million dollars. I won't check out the site every day, since the deals usually last a couple of days, but I'll definitely be checking in once in awhile or when I need a little something special.

The man and I just recently took a trip to Washington State. Neither of us had been before, we wanted to take that "one last trip" before the baby comes and also, one of my oldest friends was recently relocated to outside of Seattle ... all the very best reasons that we could think of to make the 6 hour trek across the US. We had a great time, especially since there were up to 3 snow storms while we were gone and a good Samaritan snow blowed our driveway after each one... trip made! We visited, we ate, we went sight seeing and we laid in bed watching the Olympics. It was pretty much a great week. Want to see some snapshots from our trip?

I am happy to announce that I am in an awesome program called the Barely There Blog Squad. We are lovers of our intimates and most importantly, lovers of our Barely There intimates. I was first given a taste of Barely There at last year's Blog Better Boston Style Summit and have been a hug fan ever since. The folks over at BT shared goodies with my readers over the holidays and are now ready to have the best year yet!

This past Tuesday, there was a dinner to attend and in order to attend said dinner, I had to dress up the baby bump. Now for anyone who is or has been preggers, dressing up the bump can be a challenge not only physically and literally but also for the self esteem. It's hard to wear something with confidence and feel good about yourself when you are gaining weight in all the wrong places, well except that actual bump. I think I managed to pull off something worth showing off and I wore heels, which unfortunately we didn't get a picture of haha but overall, the man did well capturing the evening's look.
