Yep, I'm pregnant. It's no excuse for how absent I've been, but holy crap, those hormones are no joke and I just felt knocked down for the last three months. Hopefully things begin to improve a bit, although I doubt I'll be getting back to my new-blog-excitement-five-times-a-week-posting anytime soon...or anytime in the next 18 years. ;)

Of course one of the first things I thought about is what to wear for the next six months. I plan to stick to my general minimalist philosophy and try and buy as few items as possible, although I am planning to splurge on a pair of designer maternity jeans (at a discount on ebay or at consignment). However, if money were no object, I'd buy everything from Hatch. I love the styling and the aesthetic of the clothing. I really love that the clothes are meant to be worn before, during, and after pregnancy. Even at that, they're not in my budget, but a girl can dream...
