Getting things done!

I feel like time is flying by. When we first found out we were pregnant on Christmas Eve I kept thinking about the weeks ahead. I had so many thoughts about 6, 8 and 10 weeks. All of a sudden those weeks came and went! Now here we are almost 14 weeks and in our second trimester. Now I know what my friend meant when she said just wait....time will fly by. I didn't believe it one bit!

Ever since we found out we were pregnant we started a "list" of things that need to get done. Not urgent things but things we have been meaning to get done for sometime. This list consists of the following....
  • painting baby room
  • organizing all closets
  • organizing all drawers 
  • getting rid of stuff we no longer use
  • having a garage sale
  • building closet unit for baby room
  • replace all area rugs in three rooms
  • retouch paint within house
  • get garage in order
  • purge, purge and purge some more!
I know my list is way more but for now this is a good start. Well today Sarah decided to start on the baby closet. While she is almost done I decided to be some help and sit next to her and take pictures! LOL as you can tell I am a big help.....NOT!

We also cleaned the entire fridge inside and out and cleaned every bin. Cleaned the filter and moved the fridge. Phew!

I also decided to start putting up some of my Easter decorations. I got tired and stopped...oh what a poor excuse!

After that Sarah's mom came over and surprised us! She knew we were getting ready to buy our crib for the baby and she wanted to be the first to buy us a gift for our baby girl. She bought us our crib/furniture set! We are so excited to receive in through the mail!! I feel like a little kid at Christmas time! 

Isn't it puurrtty?! We are still undecided on the crib bedding. We are going to be searching on Pottery Barn or Amazon for our "dream" bedding. We are also going to start looking at paint colors this weekend! 

Phew writing all of this sure makes me tired!

Till next time! Toodles!

Wow, good for you! You know, i hear about "nesting" and you hear it described as this sweet little instinct you have to make everything nice and inviting for your little one. But when I think about it, I think about this sudden panic of "oh shit I have to get all of this done NOW or I will never have time to do it again!!"

What's it really like? :)

JustMe, I too also heard about this thing called "nesting" never really knew what it meant but gotta get things done before the little one arrives. After becoming pregnant this feeling of "getting ready" surely creeped up and now I have this huge list. I want the house to be perfect and clean before she comes home! It's honestly a wonderful feeling!!
