15 weeks: Baby, It's Cold Outside!

I know it's below zero in a lot of Northern states right now, but it's only in the 50's here in Southern Mississippi…For this Florida girl, that's COLD! :) So, this morning I broke out my tights, and this weekend I made some DELICIOUS soup! (recipe below)

I'm so glad I'm starting to have some more energy and motivation to "look cute" again. I was coasting through the first trimester with safe outfits I've already worn, now I have more energy to actually plan my outfits again. So hopefully, it stays that way! I bought lots of maternity dresses over Christmas break, I'm actually excited to get big enough to wear them, although, I know I will regret saying that when I'm actually big enough..lol

I love these chevron black tights, I think I found them brand new at Goodwill last year, haven't worn them yet! I've had this dress for years, I never really wear it, because it pooches in my stomach, but now I can fill that pooch up and it looks normal! :)

Now for my FAVORITE soup recipe for winter! My best friend's mom from Baton Rouge made this for me, and ever since then I was hooked!!
