The earlier this week I noticed a few blog's traffic views coming from a reddit thread. Curious, I tracked it down and basically someone asked for recommendations for "average-to-chubby" size fashion bloggers and my blog was mentioned - in conjunction with Work Clothes I Suppose - which was super exciting because I love her blog. The part that gave me pause was when the recommendee said that my blog "wasn't groundbreaking." Well, dang, was she saying I'm bland? And then I realized, she's right ... I'm not the most exciting dresser, and that's okay. There's no wild fashion choices to be found here, no cutting-edge photos, it's just an average blog with an average - okay more chubby-sized girl - and that's the way I like it. 'Cause that's me, perfectly, shamelessly vanilla. :) She goes on to say that she "takes inspiration from them for my non-groundbreaking life." Which, let's be honest, is pretty awesome. So if you're reading this, many thanks reddit user for the blog love!
Plus, thanks to that thread, I discovered Frocks and Frou Frou and she's fantastic! Lilli has seriously the most adorable style with great little custom touches - like a hand embroidered collar or a DIY dress.

Since today makes 19 weeks - almost halfway there! - here's a baby boy update: Since I'll (barely) be 35 by the time the baby is born, my husband went with me for a high-risk ultrasound on Tuesday. Everything went perfectly. He's 10 oz. about the size of a heirloom tomato and healthy as can be. Everything is right on track and I'm getting more and more excited about seeing this little guy in October.
