20 Things

I thought it would be fun to do another 20 things post since it has been a while since I have posted on the blog.  I have been a little busy, being a new Mom and going back to work full time is pretty hard I’m not gonna lie! Whew!  I am pretty sure it is like boot camp!   It’s nice to be back at work, I am just learning to handle the chaos on a whole new level. 

I miss blogging but it has been on back burner and I am pretty sure it will stay that way for some time.  I miss you guys and I am eager to post from time to time.  In fact I hope to post on our living room soon, we have new furniture! 

For now here is a fun look at where my current thoughts are…..

1) I love Aquaphor!  How did I not know about this stuff before, It is great for baby skin and all my skin ailments!  My feet are becoming softer by the day. 

2) I have house fever, I am itching to build our dream home…It is creeping in my mind, like EVERYDAY.  We have no land and don’t have a house plan, but I am dreaming!

3) I am SO TIRED.  7 months into motherhood and I am regularly getting only 6 hours of interrupted sleep. I’ve read 3 bestseller baby sleep books and followed the Pediatrician's advice, it’s not working.  Still, I can’t believe it’s only been 7 months, even through sleep deprived eyes my baby girl is growing like a weed! (more like kudzu)

4) I have a terrible sugar addiction, I want to quit but I love  need Dr. Pepper and that just make me crave more sugar.  I have a goal for 2016 to do better. 

5) In home d├ęcor I am really loving acrylic and gold. Together. Separate. I love it!
I am currently crushing on these Acrylic boxes at Ballard Designs.


6) I am thinking a No Spend Month would be good.  I don’t want to buy anything we don’t need for a solid month.  We are quickly running out of space in our house and I just want to feel like things are being simplified. Saving money is never a bad thing. March sounds like a good month!

7) Breastfeeding went awesome.  I stuck to my 6 month goal and  actually went 6 months and 3 weeks.  I feel so blessed that I was able to provide nutrients needed and that it went well.  I am so glad I stuck to it!  I did however learn more about boobs than I ever really needed to know.  Thanks Google.

8) I wish I’d known about Mamas Milk Box before now. It is a nursing apparel service for breastfeeding Mamas.  I never had luck finding good nursing tops and this would have been nice.  I only learned about it a few weeks ago.  

9) I love Inkwell Planner, I ordered my 2016 planner from their imperfect planner sale and I really like this one.  It is everything I dream of in a planner and I do day dream about good planners!!


10) Over night oats, my new breakfast go to.  These are easy to make ahead for the week and yummy.  I am trying this recipe for this week, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough.


11) I tried Stich Fix, wasn’t my jam.  I received 4 boxes, kept 4 pieces total and 2 boxes were a complete bust.

I2) I’ve been watching the Good Wife past seasons, it’s great.  My new binge watch.

13) The only other show I watch is Fixer Upper, love it.  Chip is hilarious. Joanna amazes me!

14) Valentines Day is not my favorite but this year my heart is FULL of LOVE, I am completely in love with our daughter, Lainey

15)  I continue to love Home Chef. It is so good, so easy and perfect for now.  You can read about my post of it HERE

16)  I love being a Mother, it is so rewarding and I love watching her learn!

17) I’m on the road a lot for work and I love podcasts, my favorite is Dave Ramsey but lately I’ve enjoyed Serial.    

18) Jelly Cats stuffed animals are so soft! They make good gifts, I hope Lainey loves her Valentines Love Bug.

19)  My hubby’s Birthday is on the 15th!  Happy Birthday Baby!

20) It’s really too late, I should already be asleep.  (It’s only 9:55 pm)
Follow along on Facebook and Instagram for the latest.  Happy Love Day!
