Maternity Clothing

Well I just broke down and purchased my first items of maternity clothing. They were on deep discount at so hopefully they'll be nice!

Since the baby is due in December I figured I'd mostly be able to make it through the summer improvising with elastic skirts and belly bands but that I'd definitely need some cooler weather clothing (hopefully I won't need to buy a maternity winter coat!) So here's what I purchased:

Smoky Quartz During and After Two-Piece Nursing Top, Originally $92, on sale for $27.60.
I thought this top looked comfy and dressy enough to wear to work and for special events if necessary with a pair of black pants or a skirt. Plus I can wear it after the baby is born for nursing. It also comes with a black tank to wear under it which I can wear with other things too.

Supima 3/4 Sleeve Deep Placket Top in Royal Blue, Originally $58, now $28.99
Should be good for fall and winter weather...

Bamboo Mock Turtleneck Top (in Black), Originally $60, now $11.99
Thought the blue was really cute but black is more practical! And bamboo is so cozy!

So that's the start of my maternity wardrobe. This weekend I'm heading to Old Navy as they had a bunch of things on clearance on their website. Am looking for a bathing suit so I can get back into going to Aqua Aerobics classes, some inexpensive capris to get me through the summer, and maybe some jeans and a few tops. After that I'll need some pants and skirts for work and I should be pretty well set!

Checking in....

Thought it was time for a little update on the projects we're working on at Casa LeBaron.   In living room news, our fireplace is almost finished!  The new tile has been grouted (no pictures yet) and all we have left to do is seal the grout and install the new fireplace doors.  Then I have to figure out how I want to style the mantel- I usually just throw a bunch of frames and things up there but am not sure if that's the way I want to go right now...  Here's how it's looking (or, here's how it was looking before we grouted the tile): Below is a close up of how we fixed our cabinet doors.  Originally they were oak with horrible brass hardware.  The panels on each door front was cracked and they were U-G-L-Y.  So we popped out the panels, painted the frames, and used my handy dandy glue gun to inset new panels.  The new panels were made from one sheet of radiator screening that we cut to size and sprayed with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint.  We added new handles and…

11 Days, 2 Parties, 6 Cakes, and 600 Miles...

Phew!  The past two weeks have been pretty hectic and LP and I are just starting to recover! 

We started last weekend with a big bbq bash at our house.  We had about 30 people over (about half were under the age of 3- yikes!) and made a ton of food.  Grillmaster Paul smoked 3 racks of ribs, made pulled pork (which he started smoking at 7 a.m.!), grilled chicken wings, and made all of the various rubs and sauces to go with each.  DELICIOUS. 

Unfortunately, I only got one photo of the whole thing:

A few days later it was Paul's birthday so his parents came over to celebrate over a big meal of Paul's favorite pasta dish.  It's a dish he ate while we were on our honeymoon- the restaurant chef was nice enough to send me the recipe so I could recreate the meal for our first anniversary and it has since become the go-to dish for Paul's birthday every year.  Yummy smoked gouda, pancetta, and artichokes tossed with pasta- delicious!

He blew out 9 candles on his cake (I didn't…

Things to Remember: Eliza Rose, Age 3

Today our sweet little Eliza Rose turns three.  Like all moms, I'm sure, it's hard for me to believe that she's already out of toddler-hood and becoming a preschooler.  It seems as though we were just preparing for her to join our family yesterday and now, of course, it's impossible to imagine what life would be like without Eliza around.

Eliza might be the smallest person in our house but she has the largest personality by far.  Shy in public, she's boisterous and energetic at home- running all over, squealing with excitement, bossing everyone around and trying to take charge at all times. 

She's stubborn and sensitive, sweet and sassy, and over the top spicy.  

At three Eliza's favorite things are her brother, her doggies, mermaids, stories, and princesses.   She loves to play tea party, help in the kitchen and go swimming.    Sometimes she says she's "Eliza BaBaron"- other times she's a "puppy doggy" or a "mermaid with a pi…
