10 months, pregnant celebrities, katie's hair

First off, 10 months ago, Jared and I were married! Fun, fun! It's crazy how fast it goes. Marriage is fantastic! And I sure do have one fantastic husband! He's been taking such good care of me. Basically I come home from work and proceed to lay on the couch for the rest of the night while he makes me food and smoothies and whatever else might be of utmost necessity. He even watches Project Runway with me.... and likes it! I love you more, babe!

Secondly, there is something about being pregnant that makes you intensely aware of all pregnant women in the world. Like suddenly, every third woman you meet is also knocked up. And with our culture's obsession with celebrity, it suddenly becomes imperative to know which famous ladies out there are also expecting little ones. Suddenly, you feel a bond with women you will never, ever meet. It's weird. There is even a whole blog about celebrities and their babies! On that note, I thought I'd share a few of my current favorite pregnant celebrities.
  • Nicole Kidman (I am so happy for her!)
  • Halle Berry (Still as gorgeous as ever!)
  • Jennifer Lopez ( Also still looking super hot)
  • Giada De Laurentiis (She's a chef on Food Network whom I've recently started watching sometimes. She also guest co-hosts on the Today Show sometimes.)
  • Cate Blanchett (She's so classy and stylish. Love her!)
  • Toni Collette (I didn't even know she was pregnant until just now, but I think she's great and very pregnant.)
Of course there are lots more out there too, and there will be even more in the next 7 months. Ah, babies, there will always be more babies.

Thirdly, I am in love with Katie Holmes hair at the Critics Choice Awards the other night! I know she's had this cut for awhile, but I especially loved it that night. I am planning on chopping my hair off this spring to donate it, and I'm thinking I will do something similar to this. What do you think?

Question: Am I totally gonna regret having short hair during my last months of pregnancy when I get super fat, or will it be nice to have all that extra hair weight gone for the hot months of summer? Just so you know, this isn't a rash decision at all. I have been planning on cutting my hair for months. I'm just letting it grow a bit more to give the layers a chance to grow out some.

*In case something crazy happens with this photo, like the last one, I got it from InStyle.


  1. Oh dear, where can a find a picture of Katie Holmes' cute hair? I will be searching the internet now.... I'm sorry you've started feeling kind of gross lately, but happy that you also seem to love being prego!

  2. Maybe you could just put the link to the pic. Its SO ture how you notice everyone being pregnant! SO true. Next comes noticing everyone with a baby, then a toddler, etc. It doesn't stop. I am also happy for Nicole Kidman. I just assumed that since she and Tom adopted she was trying to salvage her ever skinny bod. I'm glad for whatever reason she's pregnant (whether she was intentionally or non intentionally before).

  3. Ok, sad about the photo I "stole". I found it on another blog, and went back and the same message was on that one. Oops! I put another up that will hopefully stay put.

  4. I've always heard that you shouldn't cut your hair until after you have the baby, just because you want to sort of retain some sense of balance, especially as the lower bits of you get bigger. but I don't actually know anyone who cut their hair while they were pregnant and looked like a pinhead, so I don't know how true that is! (but I don't know anyone who cut their hair while they were pregnant anyway.)

    and aren't husbands awesome while you're pregnant? enjoy it, because when you have the next baby your husband will be chasing baby #1 while you are lying on the couch feeling dead and there won't be nearly as many smoothies! dang baby #1 and the ensuing craziness(although you still get pampered).

  5. I cut and grow my hair out all the time - cut it, grow it out - I am not the person to ask for this advise. It is a cute do though and Happy Anniversary. Take care. Kellan

  6. Thanks to you I've started watching Project Runway, I love it! I'm watching the second to final episode from 2005 with kara, Austin, Wendy, and Jay. Wendy won the Grammy dress challenge, I was secretly pleased because she seems like the underdog. However, Jay and Kara were disgusted that she won, Jay even said he hates her. What did I miss? Why don't like her? Thanks!

  7. Oh I totally know what you mean about noticing every pregnant woman and feeling a bond. I was the same way when I started getting boobs. I would totally look at every other girl my age and see if she had 'em's like a club.

  8. hahaha, danielle. hahahaha.
    the pregnancy club's a good one, even if it does make an ogler of you :) (i am prone to stare, just for curiosity's sake, and I always end up feeling awkward about it.)

  9. Totally cute hair. About a month ago I did the same thing - cut off all my hair and donated it. It was great. I say do it whenever you feel like it, but I'm not pregnant right now - I just got so sick of my long hair. But I love it now! I also heard that you should mail it in yourself instead of leaving at the salon for them to do. Because they just put it in a pile and then end up throwing it out; I don't know why. I thought it was more fun to donate myself. So, good luck and be sure to post it when you do (I know you will!).
