Total Nesting Mode in Progress.. these are my plans for my 3 weeks off unless lil miss wants to show up early. I am definitely not opposed to this idea.
♥ I think i'll start my first day with a day full of watching my new favorite show Parenthood on Netflix.. started getting into it last weekend and now can't wait to have a marathon and watch em all. I especially like how right now I feel like I can relate to the show.. not any particular character or family but just the whole thing of becoming a parent and what they're all going through with all the different kids' ages/stages. Also it's a plus that it takes place in Berkeley.. kinda cool to hear some of the references about the bay area.
♥ Tuesday is our anniversary so I'll probably spend more time doing nothing- but lounging, maybe poolside and then once hubs gets home we'll go out to dinner.. can't believe it's been 2 years already.. Feels like just yesterday we were celebrating with all our family and friends.
♥ Pack my hospital bag! I know i know I still have to do this.. and install the carseat.. oops
♥ I've already re-arranged the living room and our master bedroom.. so next on the list is the office and the kitchen. I have to make room for all the baby's kitchen stuff right?
♥ Add finishing touches on nursery. I don't want to share anything until every last detail is up!
♥ Celebrate my birthday! I'll be 26! I feel so old! 26 is close to 30 and the thought of me being almost 30 is just weird! It's next weekend and really this is the first time I don't really care to do anything (like go somewhere.. every year we go out on a vacation).. I'd be perfectly fine with maybe a movie and dinner or somethin..
♥Go through my pinterest board and clean up and organize. (sounds so silly but I'm actually looking forward to this!)
♥ Do lotsa walking. I plan on if not going outside (I don't like to take the dogs out by myself) getting on the treadmill every day a couple times a day.. why not while i'm watching Parenthood?!
♥ Having a garage sale! There's so much lil crap I want to get rid of!
♥ Go to my mom's "Grandma Shower". Isn't this the cutest idea? Her work is throwing it for her.. they just love her so much it's sweet..
♥ Go visit both of my grandpa's... I forget from time to time how important it is to make the most of your time with your loved ones..
♥ Get a tan for the hospital? ;) kidding kinda.. hey if I'm gonna be home during the summer, mind as well lay out and enjoy the sun!
♥ Make sure i'm prepared for after baby.. for myself! Up until this week I've been all about preparing for her.. now that that's ready and I'm as prepared as I'm gonna be I started realizing like shit! all these things people don't tell you.. I've gotta stock up on the essentials for "Mama Care- post labor" and nursing clothes.. btw how the hell am I supposed to know what size nursing bras to get? Or do I just save that for afterwards?
Any other things I should be doing with all my free time? I know the number one suggestion is to SLEEP, but I can't really just sleep.. I have all this extra energy to just get shit done!
