Happy Monday and good morning. I’m dragging a bit with this time change stuff, but the week is looking up and I’m excited to get moving on my to-do list. I swear Daylight Savings had little to no effect on me prior to being a mom, but now that I have four littles and way less sleep, Daylight Savings is a real and impactful thing in my life. I’m already tired! Why another thing to add to the tired? I’m sure you can relate so here’s hoping you and I both recover from it quickly!
We had a great weekend that involved a lot of hanging things on walls and Spring cleaning. Soren and I did make it out on a date on Friday. We just went to a local restaurant and then picked up a few things for the kid’s Easter baskets. Baker came along and now that he sleeps less and less, we definitely notice our increasingly loud third wheel. He has become very vocal with squawks, hollering and a lot of what I call belly aching. Its so loud! He does giggle and smile up a storm too so we’re generally pretty happy to have him around.
Last week I bought a bunch of decor for the kids’ bedroom from Target’s Pillowfort line and after a thorough cleaning of their room on Saturday we convinced Dad to put it all up.We went with a shark/pirate theme. I asked Kesler and Easton to paint/draw a shark or an anchor and then we framed them for a cute gallery wall. I just love it! Their room by no means ‘done’, but it looks much better now and it feels like a cute space for them. Once we move N&S out of our house and into our new space we’ll finally have space to have a playroom downstairs. And when that glorious day arrives I am excited to really finish the boy’s room and get most of the toys into a designated space in the basement. Currently we live with a lot of extra stuff around us- like all of the kids’s toys in their bedroom. It’s not ideal, but it works for now.
On Sunday I gave a talk/lesson in church about finding joy in the changing and uncertain world that we live in. I think it went well. That topic has kind of been a theme for me in the last few years so I had a few things I could say about it. And there were also few things I learned as I prepared my thoughts. We ended Sunday visiting and sharing Oreo browines with some friends that we love to chat with.
I hope you had a great weekend too! Don’t forget that tomorrow we’ll be sharing Nickel & Suede’s new Spring line. You won’t want to miss out!
