Harry Potter inspired maternity outfit {The Bump Week 32}

I am finally reading the Harry Potter books. When they first came out I was not interested at all. I don't know if it was all the hype, but I had no desire to read them. Well my interest was sparked recently and I'm all swept up in Hogwarts and am now on book #4. Harry Potter is slowly creeping it's way into my life and I even bought this owl dress the other day unintentionally and then realized when I got home oh my gosh this is so Harry Potter. #imanerd

So I know I'm a little late to the game, but better late than never right? This week's bump outfit is purely influenced by what I'm reading...
Best moment this week: Making freezer meals with my dear friend Theresa. We found some great recipes, shopped together and then made the meals together to freeze and enjoy when our little guys get here!

Food cravings: Nothing new...just Chipotle 24/7.

Movement: Baby boy is definitely getting cramped. I am feeling him move around all the time now. Feeling frequent hiccups is still my favorite.

Symptoms: My back hurts and I can feel my belly stretching, but I'm thankful not to be swelling up and I'm still not at the place where I have to waddle either. Win, win.

Nursery: After 2 Ikea trips in one week Aiden's dresser drawers are now super organized. I bought a few spice racks to stain and turn into mini bookshelves (thanks Pinterest) and the artwork is now hanging up! 

Prayer for Baby:
Dear Aiden,
We are getting closer and closer to actually meeting you. It's crazy to see foods in the fridge with an October expiration date! I had a dream the other night that you made your appearance early and really you could come anytime. I'd rather you wait until your due date, but whenever you decide to come into this world I will be ready (or try my best to be.) 
Love,
Your Mama

Dear Lord,
Thank you for continuing to watch over Aiden as he grows. I know you know the very number of hairs on his little head and that brings me comfort. I'm trying to read pregnancy books and mentally prepare for motherhood, but I know I will never know everything and could never be truly prepared for this journey. Help me to not worry and to take everything one day at a time. I'm so glad you are always with me.
Amen.

You are almost there! You will be holding your baby boy in just a few weeks!!!

I can't believe you hadn't read the Harry Potter books! But how fun to have the whole series to work your way through right now. Good thing you didn't have to go back to school because it would be hard to pause in the reading and get back to work :)

Also: I always want Chipotle (and ice cream). I'm like a perpetual non-pregnant pregnant lady.

You committed the ultimate Blogger sin! You modeled a super cute dress without sharing where you got it from! ;)

Seriously, though- I'm loving that dress- tips on where to purchase similarly adorable belly-friendly clothes are much appreciated <3

Jenna Griffin said...

Natalie said...

Who could blame you for the Chipotle?! I want Chipotle 24/7, and I'm so not pregnant.

Aren't those hiccups the best? I used to love feeling them!

JK Rowling is my spirit animal. I'm so glad you're reading the best series ever...I'm sure one day you'll share it with your little guy! :)

Oh my goodness I'm so glad you're reading Harry Potter AND letting him inspire your wardrobe choices. That owl dress is terrific!

I love the HP series. As you know (I'm sure), I read them for the first time this past year and now Kevin is reading them ... and I'm reading them again over his shoulder. So so good!

Hard to believe you'd never read the books before! I'm so glad you are now, though! And that you are loving them! I don't re-read a lot of book series, but I totally re-read that one! :)
