Writing this one in advance because I know I’m going to be recovering from the March for Babies today! In the days leading up to the March, I was in Laguna Niguel at the Mom 2 Summit, a conference for online content creators. Stitch Fix offered to send me clothes to wear, and they sent me a bunch of bright patterns that I normally would NEVER have picked out, but ended up looking nice. I’d like to say that having my outfits pre-picked meant I packed light, but no. My suitcase weighed like 200 pounds. Luckily I could drive to the conference so I didn’t have to check it.

Thank you so much to everyone who donated to our March for Babies team. We not only met our goal, but we exceeded it! I am so grateful to all of you!
Happy Sunday, everyone!

It looks like Stitch Fix is on to something here. You look GREAT in the bright colors! I especially like the dress photo on the left.
Love all the pretty outfits! I’m looking for a high waisted bottom too… thank for the link!
What is the dress on the left? Looks amazing!
All I can say about Postcards from Google Earth is whee! Imagine driving on those highways.
Great job as always putting together a really interesting set of links.
Can I ask what size you ordered in that swim suit? (I know that’s not polite of me, but I think we’re about the same size and I’m not sure which one to order!)
Eh, I don’t care about stuff like that! I am an 8 on the bottom but kind of lumpy, so I got an XL. It works great on the bottom but the top is a bit big!
Thank you! (I don’t care about that stuff either.) I’m a fair amount smaller on the top than the bottom…I was thinking XL but not sure if I have enough on top to fill it out Looks like they have free returns, so probably can’t hurt to try!
The top is definitely big, BUT, it’s tie-top and tie-back, meaning you can tie them as tight as you need. So that helped. But I also have a plain black top that matches. Having the bottoms fit was worth it to me!
I ALSO love that drapey tunic from Target. I bought one before realizing how great they are for nursing. I bought 2 more!
