Heather's Pregnancy Compendium: Part 4

25 weeks!
more topics to tackle:
hair:  i have mentioned before that my hair has felt healthier than ever. it is thick, full, and growing. i am tempted to cut it a little but i've always admired the Farmmidwives and want to have that long-haired nature-mama look. best hair plus: i hardly have to wash it. it never feels dirty or looks greasy. it just looks messy, but you all know i don't mind that! another fun fact: i am growing tiny baby-hairs all along my hair line and best of all, they're coming in both brown and silver! you know you're an "older" mama when that happens J

headaches:  this was a pregnancy symptom I had never heard about.  in my life, i've never had a migraine or struggled much with headaches, so when i started getting a headache every day it came as a surprise during the first trimester. of course, you don't take advil when you're pregnant and even though it is supposedly okay to take tylenol, i never did. i wasn't even drinking te…

Our Love Story

someone once asked me to write how darin and i met. now, with a baby coming and all, i feel even more nostalgic and happy with our relationship than ever, so it seems like the perfect time to share our love story.
we are both from placerville and we have known each other since high school. darin was two grades behind me in school and he was a jock, mvp of the basketball team; all the girls liked him. he claims he just stayed home and watched movies all the time and that he was shy and stuff, but i remember him being "popular" and someone i never really thought i'd know. (i was a mormon band geek)
then, the year after we graduated, darin was working at the movie theater and my best friend kim had a crush on him. they started hanging out and went to his homecoming together. i took this photo of kim and darin, circa fall 1994:  we went over to his house to hang out and watch saturday night live. he and i talked a lot and laughed our asses off and became friends. even thoug…

"Some are born to sweet delight...."

my sweet things this week:
grapefruit! ultimate craving lately, so good i drool over it.
this is my new favorite drink. it is a very tart and yummy lemonade, comes in regular, mango, strawberry and raspberry...i love them all but they are definitely a treat drink.
speaking of treats....i couldn't resist these easter candies at the store. they were my squishy sweet favorites as a kid and i find them immensely satisfying. darin says, please don't show that on your blog.
this sweet little ferny belly. when she gets the chance she rolls in the sun with pure delight, falling over in one irresistible swoop and just rolling and rolling.

more random sweetness: my boys before a graveyard shift.
this is what i wore to my doctor appointment friday, feeling a bit jaunty and sporty.

big little belly!
stripes, plaid, stripes. i thrifted this hoodie last week and it has become another new favorite.

march has been a sweet sweet month. it is a pleasant springish time to be pregnant.  i'm …

Wilcox's Dictionary of Costume

i recently picked up Ruth Turner Wilcox's Dictionary of Costume at my work. perusing it provides long lazy moments of entertainment and i thought you guys might enjoy a little peep inside.

the illustrations are totally captivating. i want to create an entire wardrobe from these drawings.

 this little sailor outfit just might be my favorite right now. i am fickle though, my favorite might be a french striped 1920's bathing suit too.


many different periods:

 and good information for someone interested in the way our clothing is (and has been) made.

see anything you'd love to wear?
