Chalk it up to nesting.
Blame spring cleaning.
Or maybe it’s second tri energy?
I was wild with house fury this morning!
I changed all of our bedding – into a crisp white duvet cover and matching sheets for spring
I went through my closet and sorted clothes for Goodwill that I didn’t wear this winter or are just not fitting well and not my favorite.
And I packed up anything that was wintery or too small for my stomach and put it in the attic! My closet is now wide up and freely flowing.
I had “buy hangers” on my shopping list. No longer necessary!
I also rearranged the throw pillows in our house for new colors in new places
And put pretty bedding on the nursery bed
Then changed my mind to this pillow – to start the yellow + gray theme!
I cleaned out everything from the nursery room + closet (where I had off season clothes – now in the attic) and asked Matt if he had any ideas about how to keep this bathtub secret door to stay closed. He made this awesome latch! Brilliant!
And then we hung baby art that has been sitting in the nursery closet!!
All three pieces were made by my grandmother – and the lion was in my bedroom when I was a baby
Mom, me and Gram on another wall.
The nursery is now ready to be filled with baby things. First step: a rug.
Then the real cleaning began….
I also did 3 loads of laundry. I rotate between soap nuts + essential oils and Method – just depending on my mood. I like both a lot [found that Method scent on sale at TJ Maxx]
And these are still the best product smell ever invented.
After a quick shower to clean myself, I walked down to Cville Coffee for my first mother’s group!! My friend Alice, who had her baby a month ago, invited me to join their Facebook group. Most of the moms there had babies from 6 days old to a few months, but pregnant ladies are invited as well! It was SO helpful to ask questions about local resources and their experiences at the hospital where I will deliver. And holding a few babies was also pretty fun. I can’t wait for the next meeting!
Nelle and her little one were looking fabulous just 6 days post-partum!
For lunch I had a …………dun dun dunnnn SALAD!!! Maybe I really have hit some kind of turning point today!?!?!
Love the Veggie Bean salad there – topped with tofu and full of kidney beans + garbanzos, olives, carrots and lettuce. Ate every bite!
And guzzled water. I’m still hungry though and almost ready for a snack!
I walked home and Matt and I are gearing up for a trip to buy some house supplies.
Yay for Sundays!
