Stretch Across the Sky

This is one of those dresses that is constantly worn but never photographed.  It never actually occurred to me until someone complimented my outfit while running errands yesterday.  So I decided to take some pictures of it while I was up, running, and motivated.  My belly tends to make my dresses waaaaaay shorter in the front so pairing everything with tights has been my rule of thumb.  Not like I wouldn't be doing that in fall anyway, but it was a nice 75 degrees!  I'd rather be a little on the warm side than flash the goods to unsuspecting people.

On Friday night my husband and I ventured to downtown LA to see Nine Inch Nails.  I've seen Trent Reznor perform in a different band but never an actual NIN show.  I was absolutely impressed with their live performance.  It's not too often that a band sounds exactly the same live as they do in the studio.  Although at eight months pregnant I probably shouldn't be going to many more shows.  Of course, everyone around me was smoking weed so I was doing my best not to breathe!  I actually felt guilty that I was inhaling all this second hand smoke, I really didn't want to get B high.  I was probably just fine but my anxiety really got the best of me.

Something else that apparently annoys me: people taking pictures/videos the entire time during a show.  I usually keep my phone in my purse, especially if it's a band I really enjoy.  But I felt like most people were watching through their cell phones.  I find that so odd!  Considering those tickets were pretty expensive at face value, I couldn't imagine spending my time trying to get a great shot/video that I probably won't even look at after that night.  Don't get me wrong, I love technology but sometimes it gets in the way of actually enjoying real life.

Does anyone else feel that way?  Maybe these last couple months of my twenties are really starting to transition me into my old crotchety thirties!
