    Totally impressed by Lisa’s motivation to change out of her pajamas! Sounds funny but with how busy and talented she clearly is, you’d hope she wasn’t as super human and work from home in PJ’s. Ha. Great post. Love her.

    Great job on your video.  You’re so super pretty, and I totally didn’t notice any baby bulging at all 🙂

    Thank you, Lori! haha, it’s probably because most of the bulge went into my bra. Waiting for the belly to start competing with my top half 😉
