Angel Wings and Elephants
I went shopping for a hoodie long enough to cover my jellybean shaped body. I found the perfect one at Victoria's Secret.
I brought it home and proudly showed Jared. I tried it on. He was clearly unimpressed.
He asked me:
First how old are you? Aren't you almost 30?
Second, are gold sequined wings on the back of your jacket a good idea when you're pregnant???
Maybe he has a point.
A sparkly, flying pregnant chick is not exactly the look I was going for.
Of course I had already washed and worn it, so I couldn't return it to the store.
I felt a little bit better wearing it around while I was visiting Utah for Christmas.
EVERYONE loves sequins and bedazzled clothing there. Even the men.
I have never seen so many glittering butts in all my life. (Except for that one time I went to a Gay Rights Parade.)
I also bought a cute silk shirt from Lucky. I bought it a size bigger so I could wear it while pregnant. I clearly was not thinking ahead.
I don't know how I feel about wearing elephants when I kind of feel like one. I'm bigger than normal, and I stomp around all day looking for food and protecting my young.
From now on, I should probably shop in the maternity section. I don't think they have angel wings or elephants on any of their clothing.
