Another day of meetings and then the ever evolving process of getting the room just right for the new students. I may be on maternity leave but I still want it to work, be inviting, and nott oo crowded with stuff. Sometimes you just need a tee and a denim jacket to start the day, this day was no exception.

Today was the day we secured our daycare - they start in two months - traversed the zoo while many strangers asked us very nice questions about the babies and then finally had a very flat tire. So tomorrow is now the day we take the lemon minivan to the dealership to be fixed. So much for just hanging out at home.

This post could also be titled “This is what sleep deprivation looks like…” three nights of the babies waking up every two hours, unfortunately alternating every hour of who wakes up, and the bags beneath my eyes are the size of tote bags. However, that did not stop us from heading to a local corn festival with some of the most delicious sweet corn around.
Oh and did I mention the rides? Thea got to try every single one and I got to conquer my fear of heights in the ferris wheel. Top it off with fresh squeezed lemonade and cheese curds, yup, that spells Wisconsin summer for you.

I have to admit getting dressed has been a chore. This huge belly is not cooperating and the weather has been too hot to bust out all of my long dresses… so my poor husband gets to see me every day in a mini skirt and a white t-shirt, thus the lack of posts. Although if I had been a true fashion blogger I would have made it the white tee and mini challenge, oh well
36 weeks of twins there
Thea was also taking pictures throughout this

The heat returned and the wasps came out of the logs. We enjoyed another day with a pool, great friends, cake and perhaps even a fish fry.
Woke up realizing that today I have a 35 week belly which is so amazing and at the same time so huge and I don’t know how it can get even bigger but it will and oh well. My feet are swollen, the airconditioning feels amazing and we have a movie to watch.
You know when life gives you one of those moments that you didn’t expect but it stops time for a second, this picture captured one of those moments.

It’s still hot and my belly is huge, so I picked up this shirt well knowing that it would just cover it if I kept on tugging down on it. My eyes are on the prize at the end; our babies, and not having to wear any maternity clothes ever again.
This day consisted of taking Thea to daycare, one shop stop, and then reading a book on the couch. Sometimes you can get a little dressed up when you have nothing else to do, I am ok with that.

The heatwave broke late last night which meant open windows and a breeze that didn’t bring in more unbearable hotness. We celebrated this morning with a trip to our amazing free zoo, which coincidentally was the same place I had promised Thea to go to when I ended up in the hospital instead. So for two weeks I have had a very urgent request from her to please take her to the zoo…
Even though the heatwave broke, we still hover close to 90 so this insanely basic outfit served me well. And I am also at the point where most shirts do not cover the belly, so things are pretty limited…

I thought to spice things up here I would do some pictures seated on the deck. BUT…when you are 31 weeks pregnant and the self-timer only gives you 10 seconds, there is no way you can get into position and look decent. I thought I might faint from the exhaustion and Thea was quite concerned about me falling off the ledge. So no more fancy poses from here, just back to the good old wall
And why not mix a stripe and a plaid?
