This Week's Craziness

I cannot believe it's Thursday already... my how the days are flying by! I realized this morning that next week Caroline will be 1 month old-holy moly.
This week, I made a huge to-do list, but broke it down by tasks for each day, and I am finding time to tackle most everything that I had been pushing aside for the past few weeks. Makes me think I am finally starting to get the hang of this schedule.
Occupying my free time is party planning for 3 of my friends wedding parties/showers, working on Caroline's birth announcements, and finishing my blog revamp...and thanks for all your sweet comments on the refresh. I love it. I am also attempting to nap at any given moment-Mom and Gran caught me the other day doing this...
Speaking of something else I love, look at what Mimi and Pappy surprised little bit with for Easter-her very first set of luggage! I know we're going to get loads of use out of these essentials for all our trips and overnight stays. {Tote Bag: LL Bean; Rolling Suitcase: Pottery Barn Kids}
And in other great news, another one of my friends had her little one on Monday-Leslie and Dusty welcomed Davis Charles Walker! It was so exciting as they had waited until the delivery to find out whether they were having a girl or a boy, and just as everyone guessed, a healthy baby boy was brought into the world! I think Caroline is going to have a good number of boyfriends on her hands ;).
So check this out...I've had a few of you out there ask questions about working out post-delivery. Yes, I have started back going to the gym 2-3 times a week, and it feels SO GOOD to run and lift weights again. I assure you though, I am taking it very easy and trying not to overdo it...I know the rest of this weight isn't going to fall off overnight and I am going to have to work harder than I ever have before.
Not to mention when you've got grandparents bringing over dinner and sweets 2 times a week, things could get ugly...I'm trying to treat myself every now and then--deprivation has never been my style. I am also writing a post all about my workouts so stay tuned!

  7. I'm impressed you have kept your blog about you and your interests not just your love life or baby. Baby blogs get boring for people like me who are far from that stage in our lives- I love your blog's originality!

  21. a few post birth questions for you.. did you wear the spanks? And, where does Caroline sleep throughout the night? I am petrified for the initial transition to life with baby and would love to hear what worked/didn't for you. Thank you!!

  23. Such a sweet pic of y'all napping!

    I know it's only been a month, but I would love to hear what baby products you have really found helpful and what's worked for you so far (and what hasn't). It would be helpful for any soon to be mommy's ;)
