Big Belly Pics- 28 weeks!

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Welcome to the brand spankin' new Petal and Thorn blog!  If you found me through my now retired Treasured Petal blog, you probably know that I'm saying au revoir to the wedding flower business so that I can focus fully on Baby Brancaleone.  Here she is, in my belly, captured with love by my talented friend Trista Lerit...

I'm still managing to fit into non-maternity tops (not for long, I'm sure!).  This one is from Ann Taylor Loft.

In the background, notice our wedding pics, also taken by Trista!



Can you spot Basil?  She's enjoying her last moments as the family princess.

I don't usually do the crop top thing, but I'm pretty proud of my belly and wanted to show it off :)  My "inny" is almost an "outie" at this point.


I did my hair (thank goodness for hot roller!) and my sweet neighbor Chie did my makeup.  She actually gave me some eyebrows for once! 



I got this dress at Anthropologie for 21.99 on clearance.  Hopefully something I'll be able to wear after the birth!

Isn't Joe adorable?


Thank you Trista!  I will forever treasure these!  

I plan on updating this blog as often as life allows with fun Petal and Thorn news, family updates, DIY craft projects (including some of the projects I've been working on for the nursery!) and general housewifey stuff. Be sure to add me to your RSS feeds- you KNOW you are curious about how my home birth goes and want to read all the juicy details.  Maybe juicy and birth are two words that shouldn't be used in the same sentence ;)

I just have to say, I absolutely *adore* your yellow shrug-shirt! So fem and pretty.. you and your pix are both lovely :))

Also so nice to see where the fun of planning and coordinating can go after the wedding. I'm still enjoying my wedding planning, but when people ask what I'll do when that's gone, I know there's so much more to look forward to.. Exciting to get an early glimpse :)
