We made it to the Sugar Bowl

It’s kind of sad how short college football season is. It’s always fun to sleep in a little on Saturday mornings and wake up just in time for kickoff. I have to say, I’m pretty dang proud of my Michigan Wolverines this year, with a 10-2 season and all. We’re going to play against Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl this year. It would be a fun game to go to but with a little one on the way, travel is out of the question. However if I were to go to the game, I’d probably wear this outfit. Yellow (maize) + blue has always been one of my fave color combos, and not just because it’s my school colors. And I kind of like it paired with creams and browns too!

Bump update: 38.5 weeks
– Still dilated 1.5 cm
– 27 pounds gained
– Craving caprese salad(and I had it too)
– Have tried walking stairs, pineapple, raspberry tea, spicy food, massage and bouncing on exercise ball to induce labor (obviously none of those worked)
– Still lots of Braxton Hicks contractions but not any real ones
– Hospital bag packed in a carry-on roller bag (don’t laugh!)
– Have caught myself snoring

What are your school colors?  Are they a good color combo, fashion-wise?

    My school colours are white and green. I think they are a fantastic colour combination, fashion wise.

    You are so cute!!! I can’t wait for your little bundle of joy to get here! My high school colors were blue and gray, yuck! My college colors were royal blue and kelly green, even more yuck. I’m not a huge fan of those color combos. Why can’t a school choose pink and gray??? or pink and brown? Or PINK?

    You look incredible!!!! My husband is an ob-gyn resident and says tons of people bring in rolling suitcases!! You are not alone πŸ™‚

    Though I’m a Buckeye fan (the “big” game was brutal on me this year…) I still think you look adorable here. In fact, you’re probably the cutest Michigan fan right now because of that bump… πŸ™‚ Hopefully your baby will make an appearance soon!

    This little one will come when he is ready! You look beautiful…try to enjoy these last days when your son is closer to you than he ever will be again…it is a precious time! And watch lots of movies, and really enjoy eating and doing things with two hands, because that is about to change!! πŸ™‚

    Our school colors are close to yours, but a bit better if you ask me. Blue and Gold – GO IRISH! πŸ˜€ Ok, enough of that rivalry done. I’m actually glad football season is over this year. I got a little too heated about it during S. Carolina/Clemson time (Oh yes, I’m also a Gamecock fan… a big one).

    I bet you are SO excited that it is almost time! I hope he arrives before Christmas Day because what a present that would be!

  8. December 12, 2011 / 10:23 am

    Seriously cute outfit. I’m an OU girl..the colors are crimson and cream. A good color combo this year, especially with the red denim trend! I’m kinda glad this season is over though…it was a tough one for OU. My fingers are crossed that you go into labor soon!!

  9. December 12, 2011 / 10:49 am

    I love dedicated you are to your schools. So fun! My college colors were blue and white, a combo which I love. Go BYU!

  10. December 12, 2011 / 10:54 am

    I don’t really have school colors because I never really stuck to a certain college. I always liked my high school’s colors though, blue and white.

  11. December 12, 2011 / 1:35 pm

    You’re one hot (soon to be) momma! πŸ˜‰ I hope Baby a la mode shares the same birthday with me, toooooooo! hehe. My fingers are crossed for ya! (I mean, how cool is 12/12?! hehe.)

    Oh man, caprese salad is SO good! I don’t know how many times I had it when I was in Italy! YUM!

    Ahhhhhh two nights ago I had a dream I was in labour! It was so crazy… hahahaha. & Keith said he had to go to the bookstore instead of the hospital! Bahahahaha so strange!

    I think a rolling suitcase is genius! While all the other soon-to-bes are balancing big bags, you or hubby will be pulling that cute little roller behind you with ease! πŸ˜‰
