It has been so quiet right here that I don’t know what to do with myself! I’m attempting to work forward as a lot as doable provided that my workdays can begin at 7 and finish at 7 and my life goes to be turned the other way up someday this fall (talking from expertise!) I’ve a handful of sponsored posts scheduled for Nov + Dec that I’m attempting to deal with now in order that I can actually embrace some maternity depart this go-around. (Facet be aware: does anybody know the place I should purchase egg nog in August?! I may need to only make it from scratch!) 

I’ve been lacking my West Coast boy a lot and Facetiming with him after I can. Just some extra days till we fly out! I’ve been pulling on my invisible string and embracing our E.T. & Elliott connection whereas he’s gone. (His Abercrombie Children shirt has me all excited for fall!)

One of many largest variations I’ve observed between life with and with out having a baby round is the time I’m spending within the kitchen. When it’s simply me, cooking is one thing I like to do to calm down and unwind. There’s no rush to get something on the desk as a result of there isn’t any looming mattress/bathtub time routine and Thomas and I can simply wait till dinner is able to eat.

Regardless that Mazen may be very self reliant today, I nonetheless discover it overwhelming at instances to prepare dinner dinner and have it completely timed for our household to eat. Whereas I get him to assist out typically, that in itself is an additional problem. I feel the underside line is when you’ve got anybody relying on you to eat at a sure time, you could do planning and prep upfront.

Sandwich goals!! All that yellow is a fats heirloom tomato. Plus plenty of Seaside cheddar, avocado, a tiny slice of ham, pickle on Cville Crunch bread from Nice Harvest.

T and I’ve stored dinners lighter the previous few weeks and have been loving dinner salads. They’re heartier than they appear. This one had rotisserie hen, home made croutons, goat cheese, inexperienced peppers, avocado, greens, and Entire Meals model lemon basil dressing.

Virgin margarita for grownup mocktail hour and dinner making time! I’m all about limes proper now and squeezed a TON of recent lime juice into this!

I’ve additionally realized that earlier than having a baby round I used to spend extra time on my home. I’ve been in nesting mode and completely organized the children’ lavatory.

I purchased this teal drawers piece after I moved in, and it supplies fantastic lavatory accent space for storing. However the drawers have by no means been organized properly by class. I’d typically open 5 of them to seek out what I wanted (Bandaids, soccer pre-wrap, washcloths.)

So I labeled every drawer (minus one that’s TBD!) with letters. I thought of writing entire phrases, however the chalk pen I’ve is fats and I didn’t need it to look sloppy so I simply simplified issues with a letter. Right here’s the easy-to-memorize information:

W: Washing

M: Mazen

B: Brother


i: iphone issues (random, I do know, however I wanted an upstairs place for this with our workplace shifting)

S: Sports activities

O: Outside (sunscreen, and so forth)

On a regular basis objects are within the baskets. Additionally: be aware my Birchbox assortment. What ought to I do with them?!

Now: what to arrange subsequent?!
