Do I look fat in this?

Why does pregnancy send you into a spin?

I would like to think that normally (ok occasionally) I am a practical women but all that seems to change when you're pregnant. I can cry at the drop of a hat, I am angry for no reason, I am miserable, I am ecstatic,

I am fat, I am fat, yep I am just feeling really fat!

My poor hubby has had to put up with me and yesterday morning during our normal getting ready for work, school etc, I walked  out of the bedroom and instead of continuing into the bathroom for hair and makeup I stopped and asked the question......

Do I look pregnant or do I just look fat?

Well if I wasn't feeling so miserable I would've laughed!

Poor hubby looked horrified, a wrong answer,

a slight hesitation and he knew it could go terribly wrong.

He answered well and a disaster was averted but I can't help feeling that I just look fat!

Maybe it's because this 2nd time round (11 years after the first time) I am feeling displaced. It is not my first baby but I feel like it is! I am excited about being pregnant but at the same time I am not in a hurry to start wearing maternity clothes. I want to look pregnant not fat but I feel it is too early to start showing yet!

maybe I should just get one of these

and just so hubby doesn't feel left out he can have one of these

On a good note, I am feeling better and not so tired!

A touch of Orange

The weather in Orange is getting cooler and the trees are starting to change colour.

I got my jacket and scarf out last week and the heater was on.

The colour orange reminds me of autumn so I though I'd share some autumn inspired pics.


Image found here, I just love the cosiness of the knitted cushions

and the leaves on the wall are perfect for an autumn interior. 

Image found here, loving the pops of Orange via the throw rugs.

Image found here, the turquoise looks great with the orange

Image found here,

the natural textures and colours in this room along with the orange accessories, just perfect!

image found here, I love how the walls are famed to match the picture frames.

image found here, The orange and the pink together on a white background... just lovely!

Image found here, what a great way to bring some colour into the house!

Have a great week,

I hope that where ever you are you are enjoying the colours of the season.

Pregnancy does strange things to your body and also to your taste buds,

I have never liked Vegemite

for those of you who have never tasted it

Vegemite is very salty and not very nice!

My husband on the other hand loves Vegemite.

Last night he had a late night snack of Vegemite on toast and jokingly offered me a bite.

I surprised him and said yes!

Then I shocked him (and me) and promptly ate one of his pieces of toast with Vegemite!

Guess what I am having for morning tea today....

Yep, Vegemite on vita wheats!

Have you ever had funny cravings 
or found you suddenly liked something you used to really dislike?

Have a great day!


PS. Thank you for all of the wonderful comments you guys left me on my last post.
We are really thrilled and excited about our news
and I am looking forward to sharing the experiences with you.
Hopefully I won't bore you silly with pregnancy/baby talk though. : )

I am sorry, I have developed a bad habit of disappearing for a while

and totally neglecting my blog.

I have all of the usual reasons too busy, lots happening etc...

But the most exciting reason by far is that I have been feeling lousy due to this little one!

For those of you who have been around for a while you know that we had a pretty traumatic miscarriage late last year and so we are thrilled to share that all is looking well with this new pregnancy and we are praying that it continues that way!

So please forgive me for my absence and bear with me for the rest of this term, 
I have a few commitments that will ease off after Easter and then, hopefully, I will have more time to spend with you!

Have a great week my friends.

PS. Baby due 23rd September 2011 : )

Autumn Rain

Welcome to the first day of autumn!

 and what a way to start the season,

with lots of rain!

I like the way that colours can look more vibrant when they are wet

 I don"t mind the rain...........

in moderation

It can be a nuisance if I have a lot of running around to do

But I wouldn't mind so much If I had some cute accessories

What about the whole matching outfit!

Or some stylish heels?

Whatever your first day of Autumn/Spring brings you

 I hope you are having a lovely day.
