Our favorite trio!

I was so excited for Jen, Jeff and Charlie to come visit this past weekend! We always have so much fun with them.

Jen and I set off Saturday morning for the bi-annual Northern Virgina Moms Of Multiples consignment sale. Their sale last fall was the first one I had ever been to and it was so good I just couldn’t pass it up again. Needless to say, it was once again successful!

I scored some cute outfits including yet another fire outfit, a few striped outfits (of course) and another hooded onesie (from the Gap). I found a perfect onesie for OBX that says, “don’t wake me, I drank too much last night”. I also got a ton of pants which is what I was mainly looking for.


I also found a travel Boppy, a ton of Trumpette socks (thank you Jen!), a few hats (so he doesn’t need to borrow a pink one again!), shopping cart cover, Snugli Carrier, 3 bags of Snappies, and…

… a Go-Pod. A Mommie had brought this to one of my Mommy Bootcamp classes and their little played in it for an hour. I hadn’t gone to this sale looking for one since P is still a little young but it was such a great deal I just couldn’t pass it up!

The six of us also trekked out in the Momma mobile for a fun IKEA and Ci Ci’s trip. It was a perfect weekend full of shopping, laughing, great food and friendly company.


31 Days to a More Organized Life ~ Day 1

When Rob and I found out we were expecting, the conversations of me becoming a SAHM started. While I really liked my job, the commute was long and expensive. Since I always wanted to be a SAHM, I was happy that we were in the situation we were. I had all these grand ideas of being able to do EVERYTHING in the home so Rob could focus on work and then relaxing/playing with P when he got home.

P is three months old and I don’t know what I was thinking! I guess this is one of those situations where you don’t really know until you are there. Most days, I don’t have time to shower, clean up the house or make dinner. I will never regret the hours of cuddle time with P but wouldn’t mind being a little more productive during the day. I know this is possible if I just take a step back and look at everything I want to accomplish and create a clear plan to do so. If you know me, you know that means getting out the notepad and making to-do lists.

A challenge hosted by The Nester, couldn’t have come at a better time. Every year, she hosts a link up where bloggers can take the challenge and blog about a certain subject for the 31 days of October. Originally, I wanted to focus my 31 days on making a happier and healthier me. After brainstorming a little though, I realized that my time would be better spent focusing on organizing my life. That in itself would make a happier and healthier me.

I hope you follow along as I reflect on what I currently do to organize my life and what I can do to make it a little more organized. I will be focusing on every room in the house and even on organizing with a baby and living with what I call, “the unorganized”. With a few giveaways sprinkled it, I am very excited about the month ahead and how things will look on October 31st.
