Lessons Learned

Here we are, another Monday, another fresh week! The last week of February in fact, gosh has it went quickly or what?! The beautiful weather we had this weekend was totally a tease, as I know there is still plenty of cold days coming to us in Ohio but Spring- come quick, please!! It was so nice opening up the windows and having that fresh air flowing through the house- I need that all the time :) It was a solid weekend complete with some lessons I learned and thought I'd share.

- Putting furniture together is something I weirdly enjoy but apparently a lot of people don't. We got our crib assembled in less than an hour and I'm so happy with what we picked out! It looks great against the bright blue accent wall. I have walked into that room to run my hand along the railing no less than 200 times in the past 48 hours ;)

- I'm officially pregnant. Yes, I did in fact learn that just this weekend. Jared and I did a lot of stuff around the house Saturday and I'm still paying for it two days later. Don't worry, I wasn't doing any heavy lifting or anything dumb like that, but a day of cleaning, organizing and laundry and up and down the steps all day wears a girl out apparently. I was shocked at that wake-up call. Gotta' take it easy and be okay with that, I guess!

- Sometimes you just have to say no. Last week was a doozie for Jared and I. We've both had a lot of stuff going on at our jobs and it made for a long, stressful stretch of days. This weekend we just needed time to unwind, be together and get some things done without a million errands and obligations squeezed in. It was worth it and much needed.

- Mellow Mushroom is still just as tasty as ever. Okay, maybe I've always known this but it had been a looong time since I've had it. Probably last Spring, actually! Becky was in town this weekend visiting Kayla and I got to join in for a girls night Friday night and indulged in the Red Skin Potato Pie pizza.

-Walking Dead is making a comeback for me! Before they did their mid-season break, I was really losing interest in the show. It felt too slow, too predictable and I wasn't sure if I could keep watching it. However, the past 2 weeks?! SO GOOD! Who else is still watching??

Hope you all had a great weekend and an even better Monday :)

  1. Can't wait to see the whole nursery! Looks great so far! I enjoyed the warm weather in Philadelphia here too, but it was hard to accept the fact that it was a tease! I wish it would stay!

  2. Hitting the 'whoa I got to take it easy' moment is something all of my friends learn too. Keep listening to your body, you've got this! Can't wait to see the nursery reveal!

  3. <3 I remember when we got the crib for my older toddler put together. I swear I stayed in her nursery just staring at it. I love putting stuff together with my husband. Oh & pretty much anywhere I have lived we have had a Mellow Mushroom nearby but we have yet to try it. I always hear good things though.

  5. Yes, sometimes you do just need to say no, and slow down! Glad you guys were able to get that time to relax and recuperate. The nursery colors are great--I dont blame you for going in there a million times--Id be doing the same thing! :)

  7. A crib!!!! A crib that will have the sweetest baby in it before too much longer! How exciting.

    Okay, we are like a month before on The Walking Dead...I guess we need to catch up. I've been ehh about it, but my co-workers have been going nuts for the past two weeks' episodes .

  11. Ahhh yay for getting the crib set up! We went to do that this weekend too... and then realized the 'cloud white' color in our house looks like a dirty gray so we're sending it back :( Such a bummer! And I feel you on the lack of energy - even a good long walk will get to me now!

  13. Awhoo hoo on getting the crib put up! I am getting more & more excited to see the finished product! Eeek! :)

    As for The Walking Dead, I felt a little awkward watching the end...I don't dig that coupling at all. Seems to brother/sister for my liking. :\

  14. How exciting that the crib is assembled!!!!! I bet it is starting to feel even more real now, huh?! Mellow Mushroom is always delicious and I always seem to forget that! Hope you have a great week :)

  15. That's so awesome that y'all put the crib together so quickly! I've always heard horror stories about that, but I'm glad to know that it's not all scary. That pizza seriously looks so delicious, and the perfect way to start off a girls' night. And yes, TWD is seriously insane! We didn't have a chance to watch last night's episode, but the mid season premiere was crazy!

  16. I think it's always a wakeup call when moms-to-be are like wow, that tired me out. Good for you for noticing and being okay with it!

    God Bless you loving to put furniture together. It is not in my wheelhouse. hahaa

  19. I'm so thankful that when our crib was given to us, it was fully put together haha. I used to just sit in Mav's room and imagine him laying in his crib :)

  20. I'm with you - I don't mind putting furniture together at all. And I feel uber accomplished when I can manage it without assistance! Can't wait to see the whole nursery :) :)
