23 weeks

Not a whole lot going on around here baby/pregnancy wise. Just enjoying the little kicks that are getting stronger and stronger. So while things are a little boring around here, I'm going to leave you with a not-so-boring video my dear sister-in-law Tamra shared with me... you will enjoy. I promise. I laughed so hard I cried.

a colorful tip

Every time I go into a home improvement store, or any place that sells paint, I grab a few paint chips that catch my eye. I now have a collection of paint chips in a variety of colors. Now whenever I'm working on a project, from home to apparel, and I need help deciding on colors, I whip out my paint chips and feel inspired. Best thing about this... paint chips are free! Hope this helps you add a little more color into your life.

a 20 week bump

Goodness you guys. I've hardly put any baby bump pictures up! These were actually taken a couple weeks ago. My belly is a lot more belly-er now. I'm at 22 weeks. On the downhill! And this little lad is growing like crazy. Which means I'm growing like crazy! More pictures to come. Promise. I'll stop being a slacker. 

Let's take a moment to talk about my pants. They're maternity! What?! Aren't they awesome? I got them from Old Navy and I'm sold on maternity pants now. Talk about comfort! I'll be wearing these to Thanksgiving dinner this year. {Yes, my baby is due in July. No, I won't be pregnant in November. Don't care.} I tried the hair-tie-thru-the-button-hole trick one time and felt like every one I saw knew that my pants were secretly bursting open and my gut was hanging out. That was the first and last time I used that trick. I bought maternity pants soon after. Anyway, these have become my lucky pants. They're what I wore to find out that it's a little boy in there and when I wear them he gives me extra kicks thru out the day. I think I'll pack these in my hospital bag for labor day. I know I won't need them, but I'll take comfort in just knowing they are there.

trashion show 2012

Things are moving at full speed around here! The trashion show is coming along and I've started fitting models for their dresses. The show is just over one month away and I CAN'T WAIT to show you my next round of trashion dresses! In the meantime, I do an upcycling portion for the show and you can expect to see some of those projects very soon on here. 

In other news, my blog redesign has gone to the Photoshop/Illustrator stage. It's moving slowly, but it's gonna be good. 

And in even better news, the little mister has started kicking me A LOT. Nothing makes me more happy right now than to wake up and feel a few little kicks before I get out of bed. I love the kid and I can't wait to meet him.

all this silence

(the current state of my desk)

Things have been so silent around here lately! This blog is currently like a duck in water; looks still on the surface, but underwater its legs are kicking ferociously. Although the posting is slow now, I'm working like a crazy lady behind the scenes! It's been wonderful! I'm currently in the middle of the Trashion Show and am beginning to meet with models and get everything fit. I'll be posting some fun things over the next few weeks. Lots of upcycling! If anyone is in the Boise area, the show will be on April 20th at 7PM. More details later. 

And more fun news! The Lazy Saturdays blog is going to get a major face lift! It will be a lot more user friendly. It's all still on paper, but it's coming along and I'm stoked! You may not see anything for another couple months, but it's in the works! At the moment, I plan on switching to Wordpress. Just a heads up for all you wonderful Google Friend Connect followers. I don't want to leave you behind, so I want to give you ample warning that a change is coming. 

Also, if you want to follow along with what I'm working on, I have an Instagram account now. My user name is @lazykrista and I'm also now on Twitter, user name @LazySaturdays. 

Thanks for reading the update! More to come! Life is good.
