Thursday Randoms

1 - I finally bought my first pair of "grown-up" sunglasses, the Ray Ban Wayfarers!  I have never really spent any more than $20 on a pair of sunglasses, but after the last pair that I bought at TJ Maxx - a super cute pair of Jessica Simpson glasses that Brad somehow managed to snap the arm off within literally two hours of me owning them - still shaking my head over that, like what happened?? - I decided to buck up and buy a nice pair.  I've been after these forever and finally bit the bullet and bought them on Amazon for about $50 cheaper than the retail price.  They're totally legit, just goes to show how Amazon is on track to become the next WalMart (by devaluing all the things they sell.  My company sells on Amazon, can you tell we hate them?)
I debated going with a cute pair of Kate Spade sunglasses, or something a little more feminine...but I'm learning that my style really leans more towards classic and timeless rather than trendy.  I love them so far!



2 - I have a wedding coming up in a couple months for one of my best girlfriend's, and I'm having a hard time on getting a dress.  The bridesmaids were told to pick a dress in a blue shade, so that's nice and flexible.  I'm [obviously] looking at J Crew, I think they have the best selection of bridesmaids dresses.  Only thing is that the ones I like are all on Final Sale right now, which means they can't be returned or exchanged.  I'm currently 17 weeks pregnant, but at the time of the wedding I'll be 25 weeks...so question is, how do I buy a dress for a growing belly that's NOT a maternity dress??  Here were my favorites...

I'm definitely leaning towards the top one - I would just have to order it 2 sizes up and then have it altered down, which probably wouldn't be such a bad thing.  And have that deep v-neck pinned a little higher, ha.  Any thoughts?  

3 - I've started back up with Zumba and yoga, plus walking in between, which is really, really good considering the fact that I drove to the gas station yesterday and bought a Coke, a package of mini-coconut donuts, 2 Dove candy bars and a package of Peanut Butter M&M's.  I only drank 1/3 of the Coke, had 2 donuts and 1 of the candy bars but I still feel like Will Ferrell in this scene from Elf:

4 - Our trip to Florida is in 3 weeks from tomorrow!  And our gender ultrasound is in 2 1/2 weeks!  SO EXCITED for both!  You can expect to hear lots of moaning and groaning from me about how I hate summer maternity clothes :)
