Okay. So over the last few weeks I, like another fantastic mommy blogger many of us know and love, have adopted a mom uniform, much to the chagrin of my husband.
Enter my J.Crew track pants.
Now, these bad johnnies have gotten me through two and a quarter first-trimesters in what I thought was a fairly non-imposing (meaning, not stylish but not frumpalicious either) manner. They're comfortable and the best part, they're long enough for my 35 inch inseam.
Do you know how hard it is to find track pants that are long enough?
I don't usually wear them out of the house, but I have, on occasion, made a trip to the grocery store wearing them paired with sneakers and a vest.
Look! They can be easily paired with an Argyle t-shirt! (That's hot this season. Ask Liz. She knows).
Okay. So they have an elastic waistband. But c'mon. Are you really looking at that or my cute 8-week pregnant belly? (On second thought, don't answer that. It's rhetorical).
So, if you think I should let my husband burn them, then feel free to say so. I'm a big girl. I can take it. But if you think that they're not so bad and you, by chance, have worn something worse (and have picture evidence to prove it that you will generously share on your blog... ahem), then speak now.
Separately, help out my friend who is trying to finish her dissertation. She really needs your help.
Are you a mom? Do you blog?
I am a mom trying to finish my PhD; and I need YOUR help!
I am conducting academic research FOR you and ABOUT you. I have a particular interest in studying those things that make the transition to motherhood easier, or at the very least, better understood. The growing number of “Mommy Bloggers” has piqued my interest and I am researching the experience of blogging for mothers of young children. Your help would be greatly appreciated and go a long way toward increasing the knowledge of the ways in which blogging can be meaningful for people like mothers.
Please complete my survey and let me know about your blogging experience.

I know your time is valuable, thank you so much for participating.
