This article is from a blog at Glamour.com and it’s so positive and it brought a huge smile on my face! Hope you enjoy reading it :)
OK, so maybe I’m being a little dramatic with the whole superhero thing, but for a woman who appears to be ready to give birth, Jessica Simpson is unstoppable!
You may have noticed that I am slightly Obsessed with the Fashion Star’s pregnancy. There are a few reasons: 1) I feel like she’s been pregnant for a long time. So whenever she appears on my TV set, rubbing that Buddha belly, I marvel: Wow…She’s still pregnant!? 2) I think I’d look like her if I was pregnant. I’ve never been pregnant but, being the same height as Jessica (that height being…short), I have this feeling that I would look exactly like she does–with an extra 60+lbs on my frame–and it’s an overwhelming thought. 3) There’s no slowing her down! Clearly at the end of her pregnancy, she’s out promoting her reality show–and over the weekend alone she did more than I do in a week.
While I watched seven hours of television yesterday–including everything from the NCAA basketball tournament to the two-hour season premiere of Mad Men–the first-time mom-to-be traveled to Palm Springs for a wedding. And not just sit in the front row and look pretty–she was in the wedding. Her friend (and former assistant) Lauren Zelman got hitched and Jess was on bridesmaid duty for the weekend at the rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception. Of course she was dressed to thrill at both events–complete with high heels.
And if that’s not enough to make you want to put on your own slippers and elevate your feet, Jessica was also photographed running. No, not marathon training or anything like that but she was still hot-footing it. Out to dinner at a BBQ joint with fiance Eric Johnson, when they exited the restaurant the skies opened up and Jessica, who has said her walk has morphed into a waddle, had to run to the car. Here she is…
And in case you’d think being photographed at 9 months pregnant while running in a rain storm would have killed her good mood, her status update from the weekend:
So cheers to her for her motivation and great attitude. It’s inspiring to me because, not having had a kid, being pregnant looks like hard work. And if I had a billion dollar fashion empire, a TV show and residuals flowing in from music and movies, I can’t say I’d be doing more than laying on my couch deciding whether my favorite snack was an Oreo or a Girl Scout Cookie. And I certainly wouldn’t be donning a bridesmaid dress and six-inch heels. Or running in the rain.
Love love love it! I want to read more stuff like it!
