Wow! Time is a thief. This time last year I was 30 weeks pregnant and so overwhelmed (and excited, and exhausted) to say the least. Sadly my blog has been put on the back burner. I love my family, friends, writing for other blogs, and sleep….so something had to give. I’ve also had a ton of varying opinions about continuing my blog. Honestly I was feeling a bit down about it. For the better part of a year I have poured my heart and soul into it and didn’t feel like it had been getting any traction. But, I’m realizing at this point in my life I still love writing and need to start doing it for me. Not to get more readers or make a ton of money. Going forward I am going to write about and share things that I love! Which are basically my family, friends and pretty things.
What’s going on with us:
I cannot believe I am starting to plan Baby Whitney’s first birthday party! She’s not my little infant anymore. Crawling, teething and eating real food! I have a ton of mixed emotions. It is coming up so soon! I’m not doing a huge extravaganza with homemade everything. I have learned that Costco and Etsy are my friends. I can make the party super cute without having to lose my mind and sanity in the process.
I am also still in the middle of decorating our home we moved into last summer. You’d think that this would be easy, but this process is going slower then I had anticipated. Doing everything I want all at the same time was something that just wasn’t possible. I lacked time, energy and all of the money in the world to just snap my fingers and have it done. I don’t want to buy cheap looking stuff anymore, so I have to take my time and prioritize on the items I buy. I’ve decided to do the painting myself (gulp) to save money that I want to put into landscaping this spring. So, it’s coming room-by-room and wall-by-wall.
I am also back in the grind of my old training routine. I am working hard these days at the gym and hoping to see results soon. I feel like I am back to square one from where I was right after I had Henry two-and-a half years ago. I’m not going to let it get me down. I will keep working because if I did it once, I can do it again. Just keep me away from the Cadbury Creme Eggs please!
So, there it is. Our life in a few paragraphs. I’m going to keep it real and keep it simple.
