I hate putting away holiday decorations. I postponed it as long as I could but even I have limits.
Now that we are in our own home, I’m trying to be as organized as possible. Plus, with the “office” turning into the nursery, I’d like to be as space savvy as possible. Love me some storage containers! Who else goes a little crazy for organization?
I’m a neat freak at heart, but not to the point of labeling everything and making my cupboards pretty. As long as it looks tidy on the outside, I’m good.
Any hooters. With babies, there seems to be an inordinate amount of “stuff” that this minimalist will have to get over. True story: I get anxious walking near the baby aisles in stores because there is SO MUCH! I have several friends who know they are on call to tell me what I really need.
My first born. Long time readers, know Cooper has been a fixture on this blog and my best buddy. So much so, that we brave the frigid temps for daily walks. Doesn’t bother him a bit.
The cold temps mean his energy level is higher, making him a great running buddy. Golden retrievers aren’t exactly distance running breeds, but our 3-5 mi runs are perfect for him (and me). For outdoor runs (which I’m really enjoying lately), I use my Polar HRM. Like I mentioned before, I get pissed at my slowing pace, so I don’t want that to be a factor. I just want to run.
So, I downloaded this app for my iPhone: What to Expect When Expecting. You may have heard of the book.
Well, I usually have my phone handy (who doesn’t these days), so it’s pretty convenient to check this little app out, giving me insight to what’s going on in my belly.
Mangos are cute. Manageable. Just think when this mango turns into a watermelon. Yikes! During the 19th week, I’m also supposed to be able to feel movement, but I can’t tell so far…
With my skin inevitably stretching, I have been reading about stretch-mark prevention and moisturizing your skin is one of the best weapons. Plus, my hands are super dry in the winter.
This coconut body butter from Trader Joe’s smells amazing & is so luxurious. I tried using straight up coconut oil, but that tends to be pretty greasy.
1. Do you considered yourself organized? Any tips?
2. How do you combat dry skin?
