Late post days 25-29

1 Nov

Sorry for my absence in productivity posts. We have been going 90 miles an hour every single day lately it seems. Lots of organizing, cleaning out, and car shopping going on around our house. Unfortunately, not a lot of work on my list completed. But, productive progress none the less.

We spent almost the entire day
Saturday car shopping, but we did get in some organizing of the front hall closet that morning. We had several boxes of stuff to go sort through, but now we have a great place to store our strollers and coats. I hope we finish up the car shopping by next Saturday. Sunday we cleaned out the garage to make room for a larger vehicle (we had a lot of stuff stored in there) and cleaned up the house (that is becoming a weekly routine). I also worked on cleaning up the dressers for the nursery and made Liam’s name banner. It turned out really cute! I almost ordered a rug for the nursery because it was on a great sale, but it isn’t the one that I love so I decided not to pull the trigger. We are still waiting on the bedding to arrive from RH. It was supposed to be here last week. Now it is supposed to be here on the 2nd. I’m going to be a very unhappy customer if it isn’t here by then. This has really thwarted my progress on the list. I did find a cute crib sheet at Pottery Barn Kids that I bought. It was gray with white polka dots and so cute. I added his new Liam stuffed rhino to the crib (a company sent it to me…why, I don’t know). It is the first item we have with his name on it!

I’m still searching for a newborn photographer. I need to spend some more time on it soon. I’m picky and they are expensive. This is not a good combination.

And that’s about it around here. Super boring post.
