Maternity Jeans

Hello from Little Rock! I decided this morning at the very last minute to come down here for a few short days to hang out with my parents and do a little shopping. While I was running around town I decided to pop by the mall to see if the baby gap had anything cute that I couldn't live without and low and behold the Gap here has a maternity section!! You would have thought I'd struck gold I was so excited. I've never noticed that they have a maternity section here. I don't need any maternity clothes yet but last week I mentioned I was going to order some maternity jeans from the Gap when the time came and to my delight they had every single pair of maternity jeans they offer in the store just waiting for me to try them on.
My favorite jeans are the Gap's legging jean. I wear mine all the time….I even had them on today.
Gap makes the legging jeans in maternity jeans so I knew that's what I wanted to get but I was so excited that I was actually able to try them on first. I decided while I was there that I may as well try all of the different styles on but just like I imagined, the legging jeans ended up being my favorite.
I wasn't sure how I was going to like having a big panel come up all the way over my stomach but it didn't bother me at all. At least it doesn't right now. Some of the jeans offer a "demi panel" which is basically just an elastic waist band and I liked the way that looked better but I felt like the full panel would take me farther. I got these and another pair in black and I'm really excited about the way they look and fit. They're literally no different than my regular jeans. I also decided while I was at it to throw that sweater in with my other purchases because well, why not? 
I don't really plan on wearing these jeans until I have to. Mostly because I want to be able to feel like I can wear my regular jeans for as long as possible. (That's understandable right?) However, I must admit I'm not sad about the opportunity to wear jeans with an elastic waistband. I called Scott to tell him all about my purchase and mentioned that these may end up being my yearly Thanksgiving jeans. Who needs sweatpants when you've got these?! He laughed but I mean, I'm kinda serious.
