maternal

Have I mentioned that my sister and I often show up at a function and discover we're wearing the same outfit? It's strange, and it's only developed in the last few years. I guess our tastes - and budgets - are finally meeting in the middle.

So here we are - Allison at 35 1/2 weeks pregnant, and me, not. Dressed the same (coincidentally, again) at her baby shower:



Isn't she adorable? Pregnant bellies are so cute on other people.

Also, OH MY GOSH MY BABY SISTER IS ABOUT TO BE A MOTHER. New babies are so FUN and EXCITING when other people are having them. When it's my turn, I am so overwhelmed that I usually miss the forest for the sleep deprivation, but when it's other people doing the birthing - and hopefully not the c-section recovery - I get all philosophical about it.

Happy Monday everyone. And yay for my sister!

Allison does look great. It's a boy right? Do they have a name yet?

What a great picture! I have a friend Heather, and throughout the last couple years of college (of the 6, were both got our masters in engineering), we started dressing alike ALOT, disturbingly so. Sometimes we would literally wear the same t-shirt from some church or school function, and the same shorts or pants from Old Navy. Thankfully she's like 5' tall, so no one got us confused!
