Getting As Much Accomplished As Possible!


Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone’s weekend was wonderful! The poor kiddo’s around these parts are headed back to school after being off for a week for March Break! I always remember being so excited to get back to school! I hated being off!

It was daylight savings time around here this weekend which means the clocks got turned back 1 hour! I am feeling slightly hung over from the time change now! But, hopefully the time change means a change in weather! Just this week it was a beautiful sunny day while I was driving home from Ottawa! So, as I was sitting at a red light I rolled down the window and enjoyed the fresh air! It actually felt very spring like in that moment. Warm sun and cool breeze! It was heavenly!

This week I also got an awesome visit and lots of snuggles with this cutie! Sophie and her Mom stopped in to drop off a gift for Baby W and we spent over an hour just chatting! I can’t wait to introduce Soph to her cousin in less than a months time!

This weekend was kind of low key compared to ones past! But, it was nice because I had a mountain of stuff to tackle! Friday night Ryan and I grabbed groceries and went out for a quick bite to eat! After a long week, we both fell into bed early!

Ryan got the playpen/bassinet put together this weekend! Sometimes I forget it’s sitting there when I get out of bed and it scares me during one of my 5 nightly trips to the bathroom!

Saturday was all about getting things done! Saturday morning Ryan had to go to work unfortunately but it was an early shift so he was home by 9 AM! Then, it was time to nest! 6 loads of laundry, 1 nursery put together and 20 nesting projects done! It was a full day!

Please meet the inside of my linen closet…

I know by the look on Ryan’s face that the linen closet was not a “need to get done before the baby comes” project in his mind. But, it feels so nice and organized now and this Momma feels good about that!

The other good thing is the ALL the baby laundry is done! Every blanket, onsie and sleeper is clean and stored away in it’s new home! Ryan really liked this washcloth “puppet” and had too much fun scaring Tucker away with it!

Dad came over later Saturday morning and the boys did some finishing touches on the nursery! It is now 90% done! I can’t help but look inside EVERY TIME I walk by now! It has turned out better then I imagined it!

After a busy morning/afternoon of doing projects around home we decided with our free evening we would head to the city and do our March date! The March date is kind of special as it’s the last one before Baby comes! It is also Ryan’s birthday month and we wanted to be sure to celebrate early in case Baby makes an early arrival!

Sunday morning I headed to hockey with Ryan and then we rested that early afternoon! Church had been changed to the afternoon for a special Covenanting service for our minister Nancy. It was a beautiful service and then a wonderful time visiting in the church hall afterwards! 

I think Ryan and I were both pretty exhausted when we got home and settled in for a night on the couch and early bed! We are both right now on high alert for Baby W’s arrival and it’s hard to believe we are this close to meeting our little one! Another weekend crossed off the calendar and not many more to go before we become a family of 3!

How was your weekend?



  1. You had a busy and productive weekend! Does it seem real yet that you are going to be a family of 3 soon?!

  2. I don't know about you, but I turned my clock ahead, not back :P
