Grey Hooded Sweatshirt

I love my grey hooded sweatshirt.  I always have.  I found this sweatshirt at a thrift store when I was in college.  Or maybe I was in high school.  It is the most comfortable thing I own.  Justin hates it (but really he loves it) because it has holes in the armpits and the pockets are literally falling off, but I love it.  It also has a weird pointy hood that makes me look like I am part of some racist group, but still, I love it.  I wore it out tonight because it is one of the few articles of clothing that fit over my belly, as I refuse to buy any new clothes for just five more weeks.  Well, on the way home

it started raining, and that means, I was able to put my hood on.  In our old neighborhood I would have never dared to wear my hood in public due to the looks I would receive.  But tonight, as I proudly wore my hood, not one person (that I noticed) looked at me strange!  I love my grey hooded sweatshirt.  Justin thought I looked so “cute” that he did a little photo shoot of me in the sweatshirt.  Here are some pictures.  I hope you are all happy people who want to see me huge!!!  Here is the proof!

    You, Jen, are so adorable! I love the grey hooded sweatshirt, and it brings back memories. Glad you and your baby girl (and papa too!) benefit from making new memories in the grey hooded sweatshirt you love!

    You should have lifted your sweatshirt up a little (or a lot) so we could see the baby’s dwelling place for Petes sake. I am not even going to be able to see your big belly when I am there!!!! Baby will already have moved residences from belly to bassinet. I want the belly! SUCK MY BELLY!! Do you remember! I started laughing cause I literally JUST remembered! Love you!

    Two things: You know what this blog reminds me of? Your red hooded sweatshirt that you wore every day in college. Something about air conditioning.

    Second, I remember “Suck my belly” and I too laughed. Good times!

    You are so adorable!! And I’m glad you’re huge now, because this is probably the only time in your life that you will be (unless y’all have another little one;)! I can’t wait to see y’all sometime next year. Love all THREE of you!

    oh, how fun! You look great Jen!

    And please, oh please, let Justin rub that little belly of yours as much as he wants. It’s all we’ve got, really, as expectant husbands.

    You are just the cutest little pregnant lady ever… and I love your gray hooded sweatshirt, because I have my blue hooded sweatshirt that has the exact same sentiments! Love seeing your face JEN!!

    Jen…I think this is the most response to any blog post you’ve written. I think it is a directive from God that you are to have many children…. hee hee
