Christmas in January

The title of this post describes how I felt like when I came home yesterday afternoon to find this box on our front porch :) You see, my beautiful friend Britney (who lives in Oregon) offered to send me some of her maternity clothes to enjoy during this last leg of my pregnancy...how thoughtful is she??

I put Brooks down for his nap (in record time, I was pretty excited to open it up;) and then proceeded to have a little fashion show in my room trying on the fabulous (and insanely comfortable) skinny jeans, comfy sweaters & tops, adorable peacoat, and beautiful white maxi skirt. Being pregnant I don't feel cute or attractive the majority of the time...and comfortable clothes with style are a luxury! Welp, Britney helped me with all of that. Thank you, thank you!

Read "Concern for the One" by Joseph B. Wirthlin...A wonderful General Conference address from April 2008, the month before Adam and I got married :)
"The Lord did not people the earth with a vibrant orchestra of personalities only to value the piccolos of the world. Every instrument is precious and adds to the complex beauty of the symphony. All of Heavenly Father’s children are different in some degree, yet each has his own beautiful sound that adds depth and richness to the whole."

We'll see ;)

was a sweet friend. Pregnancy is hard enough without feeling like you have NOTHING to wear.

You are one beautiful mama to be. You could wear a paper sack and have it look darling;) however it is amazing what a few new adds to a wardrobe can do for a girl!

I completely understand the insane decrease in feeling attractive while pregnant but you, my friend, are an exception. I have NEVER seen you looking unattractive! I am happy for you getting all those clothes- that is so awesome! Jealous!

What a nice friend! I totally know the feeling of not feeling attractive during pregnancy. Nothing fits, and I don't want to buy too many maternity clothes because I only have 4 months left...sigh. That is so awesome!
