In the Moment: Things I Miss

Come Friday I may not fit my gorgeous, black lace vintage cocktail dress. I definitely won't fit it come New Year's Eve. Up until last week I fit it, I had inches to spare even. Now I don't.

If the baby bump was the culprit, I'd be less sad, but it's not. The dress doesn't fit across the bust. I do have other options: a less formal dress that still fits and a floor length, magenta linen gown with matching evening coat.

Rather than focusing on something I can't control, I'm going focus on what I'll be able to have again soon (we've only got 1/3rd to go!).

What I'm Most Looking Forward to About Not Being Pregnant

  1. Oysters on the half shell

  2. Medium rare steak

  3. Bacon

  4. French toast

  5. Poached eggs

  6. Charcuterie

  7. Hot dogs

  8. Hot dogs with cheese beans

  9. Potato salad

  10. Hot toddies

  11. A steaming hot soak in a bubble bath

  12. A dip in a hot tub

  13. A hot stone massage

  14. Small talk about the weather or what I did this past weekend

  15. Personal space

  16. Sleeping comfortably on my back

  17. My waist

  18. My wardrobe: vintage shoe collection, vintage dress collection, coat collection, evening gowns and cocktail dresses, vintage petticoat and crinoline collection

  19. Energy

  20. Bending over and touching the floor in front of my toes

Ciao Bella!
