Free time!!!

Hi Lovelies!!

I finally have some free time to sit down and write a blog post!! Sorry I have been MIA for the last couple of weeks! Life has been busy with appointments, birthday parties, and just life in general. 

I will be back to a regular blogging schedule starting tomorrow. I will be posting some pregnancy updates, a birthday party recap, and just some random posts. 

Tonight I will leave you with a quote that I found while surfing the net!

Have a great night Lovelies!! See ya tomorrow!!

Motherhood is...

To me, it is---

- waking up every time she makes a noise on the monitor and find it nearly impossible to go back to sleep.

- finding new and creative ways to get her to eat because she is such a picky eater. 

- sneaking into your child's room when they are sleeping to watch them dream.

- kissing boo boos and telling them it will be okay.

- cleaning up the pile of toys and books only to have them scattered all over the floor five minutes later and realizing that it is okay and to just go with the flow.

- crying at random times because you hope you are not screwing them up.

- going shopping only to find yourself spending money on clothes for your kid instead of on yourself without even realizing it.

- loving another so unconditionally and knowing that you are willing to sacrifice anything just make sure that their needs are being met. 

What is motherhood to you?

March Goals

Hi Lovelies!!

I decided to sit down this evening and organize my March (in my planner)  and to jot down some goals that I want to accomplish. Now, I can't recap my goals for February, because I didn't make any (oops). 

So here's what I'm planning for March in the terms of goals:

1. Implement a cleaning routine. 

In order to accomplish this I will following The Flylady. I have seen this on facebook and it seems to be working for most. I just hope I can stick with it this time. I have tried a few times and have just given up. This time I will stick with it and my house will be clean and decluttered by the end of the month. 

2. Plan the Little's birthday party.

We have the place reserved for the day that we have picked and all we need to now is to order the birthday cake and buy the decorations. 

3. Have a fun spring break.

We need to plan a fun trip.

4. Work on the nursery.

The room and closet need to be cleaned out, the crib needs to put together and there is a list that just goes on and on and on.

5. Work the Little's bedroom (Frozen theme).

She wants a Frozen theme, so I'll see what I can pull together. Pinterest, here I come!!

Well, those are my goals for March. What goals do you have planned for March?
