half-arsed maternity “leave”

no bebe royal…yet! her due date is friday.

umbilical cord hat
(a little hat i made for le bebe royal)

feeling no rumblings at all…well, maybe a few, but nothing big that makes it seem like her entrance into the world is imminent. what’s going on in there, girl?? *points at belly questioningly*


i’ve decided i’m going to take a wee maternity “leave”, as i am trying to finish up some last minute personal things before she decides to arrive, and thus, i think blogging best take a back-seat, for now.

and perhaps for a bit after she’s here, of course. will be in the baby zone for a time!

which means a hiatus from some of the things i regularly post here, like (not so) random links and the wardrobe_remix(ers) o’ the week, for just a bit. hope you understand!

will keep you informed of her arrival…whenever that is!

love to all.

    Have a wonderful and safe delivery, relax and enjoy your time off. Fashion will still be here when you get back. :^)

    And a well deserved break it will be, too!

    Good luck, Tricia – here’s to a safe and happy delivery, a healthy wee girl, and a good long rest afterwards!

    Looking forward to meeting the bebe when she does arrive!

    I can’t believe that it’ already your due date! Where did the time go (I’m sure not as fast for you as what it seems to everyone else)? Good luck and I can’t wait to see photos of the new baby.

    I am so out of the loop! Congratulations to you guys. Good thing you got out of Brooklyn. (Would hate to think of bringing up bebe in this building.) Hope it’s all going well. Love from Jamie and Deborah.

    The New York Style Magazine out today (August 17) mentions “Flickr’s wardrobe remix” in an article on fashion blogging but doesn’t include your name. Grrr.
