busy, busy…. FITori update

This has been a really busy week and I haven’t been on my computer much. I’ve been busy at work [it’s a short week at work] and busy with all that we have going on. I’ve spent a lot of my spare time reading about organizing and reading my baby books….makes me feel less stressed! ๐Ÿ™‚

Make sure to “LIKE” my FITori page on Facebook because when I get busy like this I still like to have fun discussions on my FB page. I love to learn from you all!!! I ask fun questions and love to read your answers and I’m always available to answer your questions, though sometimes it takes me a while to get back to you OR I tell you I won’t be replying right away and instead I’ll blog it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hopefully you’ll forgive me for my lack of well-thought-out posts!!! I have a few different posts I need to put together on some of the books I’ve recently read and been reading. I love to share with you all the great stuff I learn!

Went to a baby class today and was recognized as FITori [nice to meet you, my new friend!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ] which is always fun!!!

I had to share my new bargain with you! This is my new Nine West Bag. I’m a snob when it comes to some things…jeans & bags are two of them. I like to buy expensive and only have a few. I like good quality that doesn’t break or fall apart. ย BUT in my quest for simplicity in my life and downsizing I have bought smaller bags in recent years.

Dilemma: my fancy camera will not fit in my fancy bags!!! Now, with my Project 52 in 2011 I decided it would be important that I have my camera in more places. If I see something I want to photograph, I’ll need to have my camera in order to stop and take a pic! ย I picked out this great Kelly Moore Bag and of course it’s backordered!!! So, I needed a bag to get me through the next few months until I get this bag. ย Enter Nine West Bargain in the above pic…..$24.99 at Burlington Coat Factory! It’s excellent! It fits my camera, wallet, a book, etc in there and it’s fabulous! I love it. Let’s see how long it lasts for that price…I may be surprised!

Thought I’d take some updated belly pics since I haven’t in a few weeks…oops! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m 23.5 weeks and starting to show more but no one has asked unless I’m wearing one of my 2chix shirts! [BTW, their shirts are GREAT quality and their customer service rocks!] ย Thanks Audra for the suggestion!!! Check out Audra’s custom baby/kids designs here at Neely Bug Boutique.

I still think it’s hilarious that from the front it can sometimes be an optical illusion that I’m preggo. And, I love that my belly button is starting to come out….I have a serious innie…correction: had! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve never seen that much of my belly button before! So curious to see if it’ll pop out! Can’t wait to find out!

I’m finally sharing some fun photos of how much Toby LOVED the snow recently…was a fun time for him! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Every time he went outside he twirled and ran like a MAD MAN! So fun! ย I love this series…he was attacking the snow and it was hilarious.

I missed this snow angel moment! I ran to get the camera but I didn’t get back in time. He was making a snow angel on the snow-covered porch. I did get a pic of the finished product. What a talented boy. ย ๐Ÿ™‚

What have you been up to? Where’s your update?

Are you a discount shopper or a name brand girl?

Jess@atasteofconfidence - You look great!! and I love the pics of your pup:)

Hope - haha! So I guess I can’t continue to be the lurker I’ve been up until now ๐Ÿ˜‰ It was great meeting you..goodness knows I could use some FIT advice and butt-kicking come the end of April!!!

Christin@purplebirdblog - You are radiant. And snowy dog pics always rule… especially with your precious pup! ๐Ÿ™‚

Joanne - First, cute bag. I bought my daughter a similiar one for Christmas (not designer though)….second your pregnancy pictures are adorable…I am a bit depressed now ’cause i have a bigger belly than you and I’m not pregnant! :o) Blessings, Joanne

Lins - You look so good. Enjoy the ride!

Katy @ MonsterProof - Oh, I’m discount all the way, and you can still find bags that last, you just have to be fussy about which ones you buy and inspect first!

I was so excited! I FINALLY had a stranger comment on my pregnant belly on Sunday…and I’m 27 weeks…and was wearing a shirt that said “Baby makes the belly go round”. I know I’ll hate it once strangers start pawing me, but it’d be nice to have SOMEONE notice once in awhile.

Ashley - My word, your baby belly is so cute! I love the bag, as well. I love dicount shopping, but I always get a thrill when I can get a designer name for just a few dollars.

thehealthyapron - Ug I’ve been super busy this week so my blog posts have been lack luster…but life happens right? Anyway, love the mom tummy, definitely deceiving when looking straight on! Oh and your pup is adorable!!

Roz - Love the tummy pictures, and of course, Toby!!!! Have a great day Tori.

Jess (Daly Authenticity) - Oh my word! You are so beautiful pregnant! I hope you feel confident because you are rockin it! I am a bargain shopper all the way (mostly because I had to be for so long, but now that I don’t have to be, I find that I still enjoy the thrill)

Stephanie - I’m definitely a discount shopper! I like nice things, but I can’t bear to speand too much money on them.

Your pregnant belly is lovely!

Cailin @ Stir Crazy - I love watching dogs play in the snow… adorable photos! Our 63 lb. boxer hops like a little bunny when he’s in the snow. It’s too funny!

As for shopping, I’m horrible at bargain shopping, but I wish I was better. I just don’t take the time to look for deals!

cindy - Cute! Cute! Cute! You look fantastic!

tori - Thank you!!!

tori - I want to see your boxer hop like a bunny! Toby tends to leap around like a horse. Too cute! Deals do take time and they take repetitive visits to the bargain stores which is exhausting and time consuming AND I often wonder if I would spend more if I did that than I do just shopping for my one full price item online, ordering and being done. Hmmmmm…food for thought! ๐Ÿ™‚

tori - You’re the best! Thanks!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

tori - You are toooo sweet!! Thank you!! I feel great. I can’t complain. I have to admit I looked back at some old pics on my phone the other day and thought (and said to the hubby) wow…look at those arms! I was rockin’! ๐Ÿ™‚ But not in a way that I feel bad about myself now. I’ll get back there and be a smokin’ hot momma but for now i’m a smokin’ hot preggo momma and this whole process is awesome and a blessing. I agree w/ you on bargain shopping to save money and it just sticks w/ you!

tori - Thank you!!! You too!!
