I've said before that if ever I was glad to have learned to remix or to have reworked my closet it would be during this pregnancy. One thing I learned was the beauty of a plain white tee. I honestly thought they were dumb and pointless before, but I see the light now! And boy, do I need it to maximize my maternity wardrobe!

In other news, Benson is in full. on. nesting. mode. But it ain't whatcha think. Instead of assembling things like a crib, he's taking things apart. Yeah. Taking things apart and getting rid of stuff like there's no tomorrow. Besides getting rid of 1/3 of our books, two bookcases, a desk, a few chairs, and a lot of other little things, he even got rid of nearly HALF his wardrobe earlier this week!

But you bet I'll need to gear up with a major self pep talk first. And ice cream, of course. Always ice cream.
