Oh eBay

This outfit comes to you courtesy of eBay. Shirt, shoes and purse: all eBay. Pants not so much, so I guess I should say most of this outfit comes to you courtesy of eBay. 

Have I been hitting the eBay a little bit hard since becoming a stay-at-home mom? Maybe so.

But, um, a tooled leather purse and a pink Anthropologie shirt with Swiss dots? If these things are wrong, I don't want to be right! (Shoes: sold at Modcloth for a much higher price not so very long ago.)

I wore this to go eat Thai food and see a movie with a couple of child-free chick friends. They both met Thomas, and they both were like "Yep, no kids for me!" I'm all for people choosing to be child-free. I think it would be terrible for someone who didn't want to be a parent to do it just because that's what they feel they "should" do. I think if you have kids (or a kid), you should really, really want to be a parent. 

I love being a mom to Thomas. I so badly wanted to have a baby. In fact, it was right about this time last year that I was hanging out at the ocean and feeling really melancholy about my inability to get pregnant. I'm so happy to have Thomas now, and to share him with my friends. They can ooh and aww and then hand him right back. That works for us all!
