My $7 outfit

I was excited about this outfit I put together for $7 from 3 different garage sales recently: sweater $2, shirt $1, jeans $4. This ensemble will come in handy this winter, especially because it's maternity. Surprise--we're expecting Baby #2 in mid-March!

I'm finding out that we're in good company with expecting a baby in March. My blogging friend Jamie just announced her pregnancy, and we're due a couple weeks behind my sister-in-law, Kendra (who just started a blog to chronicle these new adventures). I also know several others who are due right around the same time, so there will be quite a baby boom this spring!
Don't you love the way I styled my hair for this photo?! (aka fresh from the shower!)

Congratulations! I actually wondered if you were pregnant a couple of days ago! Isn't that strange! You look adorable. I would have loved that sweater when I was pregnant, although I was always too hot to wear one!
God is good! Take care of yourself.

Wow am I out of the loop or what?!?!? Congrats on baby on the way!!! Hope you are feeling well!
As for your outfit, I'm impressed with what you found for just $7! I really wish I was more thrifty like that....I'm going to visit my siste(in the city) this weekend, and am hoping to get to a thrift shop to find some clothes for me...I desperately need some, and don't have the money to go buy new ones! :)

Mary said...

Congrats! That is super exciting!!!

And great outfit! It is always hard trying to find good maternity clothes at good prices!

Ewokgirl said...

Cute outfit. And, um, weird announcement timing given that I dreamed last night that I met you in person, and you were hugely pregnant! Cue the Twilight Zone music! Congratulations!

Kali said...

Congrats Carrie! How exciting!

debra said...

Congratulations Carrie!! And the outfit is really cute. :)

Frances said...

Yay!! I thought this might be the case, as you've been taking things more slowly and doing less in the past few months. Good for you! And fabulous maternity clothing find - I'm hoping for something similar very soon! Unbuttoned pants just aren't going to cut it in a couple weeks.

Amy A. said...

Congratulations, Carrie! Wonderful news and great job with the inexpensive clothing. Love it when that happens.

Dear Carrie:
I'm a 'silent viewer' who very much enjoys your blog, but, have never jumped in with a comment.......today's beautiful announcement definitely warranted me coming out of the woodwork to say that gentle prayers will follow you on this 'pink/blue' time ahead. God bless your wee family and congratulations.
