May Goals...ish.

Since this is the last full month before my world gets flipped upside down (in the best way possible!) I decided this will also be my last month with a "goals" post for awhile as well. I use the word goals lightly because I'm keeping my ambitions light this month. I'm 34 weeks pregnant TODAY so excuse me while my priorities (and my balance) shift a little bit.
I'm terrible at remembering to take bump pictures... This is 30 weeks (L) vs 34 weeks (R).

A quick look at how I did in April?
+ Order 1 more photobook. It should get delivered to my house today. Is there anything better than seeing that orange package from Shutterfly on your doorstep? I don't think so! 

✔- Meal plan more efficiently. We did better in April than in previous months, that's for sure but still didn't do it perfectly. April got busier than I thought it would so there were lots of hodgepodge meals that weren't exactly planned for, but we made it work.

+ Start stocking the freezer. Over the weekend I did a small freezer meal day and got a good start on post-baby meals to have on hand. Whew.

- Keep Walking. I definitely slacked on the exercise in April. This body is getting big and tired and it's tough to find the motivation. =\

For May, I'm keeping it at simple and preggo-friendly as possible ;) 
Here are my "goals" for the next few weeks:
may 2016 goals

Finish the nursery
This is honestly the biggest one for us. It's been a challenge organizing everything, finding a place for all the tiny gifts and now we're about ready to hang some actual decor on the walls. Still on the hunt for a curtain too, but we're getting there.

Schedule a massage and a pedicure/manicure
Thanks to some great gift certificates from my birthday last month, I have dollars to spend on these things and I cannot wait. I'm experiencing a lot of back pain (sciatic nerve- fun, fun!) so a massage this month is much needed. And who doesn't love a pedicure? My feet need some pampering too!

Spend time with Jared/Celebrate our Anniversary
Obviously I spend as much time with him as possible, but like I mentioned April got really busy and it seemed to go by in the blink of an eye. We have some fun plans together this month and I am really looking forward to all the quality time we can get. Plus, our anniversary is at the end of this month and I can't wait to celebrate!

Read/Relax More
I am guilty of feeling like I need to constantly be getting things done, but as I get more and more tired and achy, I definitely pay for it when I overdo things. Honestly, if our baby came tomorrow we'd be fine and we'd be ready. So I need to remember that relaxing and taking some time for me is definitely okay in these last few weeks. Life isn't going to look perfect before our baby comes OR after he comes, so just enjoy the days for what they are.

Bring it on May- I'm excited you're here :)

  13. Hooray for ordering your photo book! I keep on saying that I need to work on ours and then I never find the time, AKA I'm too lazy to work on it!

  23. I have a giftcard for a prenatal massage and I really need to schedule that appointment.

  24. You look adorable! I wish I had gotten a prenatal massage. I was in excoriating pain the whole third trimester. I don't miss it! Every now and then my sciatic nerve flares up again, and I immediately flash back to being 9 months pregnant. Yikes. Enjoy finishing the nursery! Whenever I set foot in there after work in the evenings, it would always calm my anxious mind.

  25. Very smart to stop the goal posts for a while. Your one and only goal for June: birth and take care of tiny human. :) Enjoy the pampering Mama...yayaayyy!

  30. You're so close! Recommendation on the curtain - GET BLACKOUT ONES. Trust me, you'll thank me later when that's a signal to baby boy that it's nap/bedtime! Best investment you can make!
