Today I am 36 weeks pregnant. In one week I’ll be 37. Full term. WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN?! It feels like we just announced our pregnancy and at the same time, it seems like I’ve been pregnant for eternity. I’m so excited to meet this little guy! I can’t believe how close we are to that point. It’s surreal. If he’s like his dad, we’ll be meeting him sooner rather than later. If he’s like his mom, we’ll be meeting him in the middle of August. And he’ll weigh 10 pounds. My poor poor mom. I came 3 weeks late, at the end of summer, while living in Minnesota, and weighed ten pounds. My mom is a rockstar. It’s strange to not know at all when our lives are going to drastically change forever. I guess the mystery is part of the fun.
Anyway, it’s the last few weeks if Mason and I as just us two. What did all you mommas out there do during this time? What did you wish you did? I’d love to hear it!
Outfit details: Dress c/o DownEast Basics, Steve Madden Shoes, Nordstrom sweater.

Have you made anything inspired by Lazy Saturdays? I’m working on an upcoming post, and if you’d like to see your work on my blog, send me your pictures! You don’t have to have a blog to be a part! But if you have one, please be sure to include your url in the email. Also, your projects don’t have to be exact copies of things I’ve done, though it’s totally fine if they are. You just have to have had the inspiration for your project come from one of my posts.
Send all pictures to LazySaturdayDesigns@gmail.com. Please include your name, picture(s), and blog url if you have one.
I can’t wait to see your work!

First of all, I think it’s important to point out how hideous this jumper originally was. The color, the length. Oh my. When I found it at the thrift store, I thought that it was one the worst pieces I’ve purchased, but it fit my belly so I had to come up with something to do with it. And I like a challenge. I’m pretty stoked with the result.
I did three easy things. First, I used dark brown Rit dye to dye it a chocolate brown(how to dye your clothes tutorial here). Then I adjusted the straps so that the waist seam didn’t hit me at the largest part of my belly and added new buttons. Lastly, I took the hem up. It was one of the easiest upcyclings I’ve done and the results are pretty drastic. It will be noce to have a roomy skirt now that we’ve officially hit summer. It’s summer! Woot!
