If you're in Los Angeles, I would highly recommend taking time to check out the Rain Room exhibit at the LA County Museum of Art. Tickets need to be purchased in advance and are a bit hard to obtain, but I thought it was worth the effort! I wish I had taken some more time to set my camera settings a bit better, but oh well. Iphone shots also come out decently! I found that the best photos were taken with the subjects being backlit by the only light in the room. Also, note that if you are a little person (i.e. my two year old daughter), the sensors aren't so great and you WILL get wet. This also happens if you crouch down to take a photo, as I learned personally. All in all it was a fun afternoon!

I have been attempting to wear my pre-pregnancy clothes as much as possible during this pregnancy, but there are some scenarios that just don't work. Work pants and jeans fall into that category as I haven't been able to zip up my pants since the end of my first trimester (I blame it on this being my second pregnancy). Thank goodness for those stretchy panels! I can still pull off non-maternity empire-waisted dresses with looser bottoms, but if I want to wear a dress that is fitted in the third trimester, I just suck it up and buy maternity. Thank goodness for Asos and their affordable options. I mean, $18?? Such a steal! The ruching is quite forgiving for the growing belly, as evidenced by the fact that I can wear this dress easily at 29 weeks and 34 weeks pregnant. The first set of photos are from a wedding I attended at 29 weeks pregnant, and the second set are from a date night with Dr. S at 34 weeks pregnant.
Date night at Tar and Roses at 34 weeks!
