1. Due to the fact that I am going back to work on Monday I made it a goal to do NOTHING this week but sit at home with my baby boy. And that is what I've done. In fact Luke and I were joking around tonight that I forgot what life is like on the outside of our neighborhood. I shall soon find out.

2. Although, I want to make sure and say, even though I haven't left the house in a couple of days, I have showered. I just shower and put my comfy clothes back on.

3. When Eli was a month old I started a post about baby products we love and planned to publish it the next day. Now that he is almost 3 months old I still haven't finished it. Hoping to do that soon.

4. I started reading blogs four years ago. When I first started reading blogs I added them all to my google reader. Over time some of those bloggers have quit, or don't blog as much and I have started reading a lot of new blogs that I haven't added to my reader. I'm thinking of just deleting all of the blogs that are in my reader now and starting from scratch!

5. My twitter account is private so in order to follow me you have to request to follow me. I was a bit irresponsible and quit looking at my twitter requests. I didn't know who was real and what was spam and so on, so I just quit looking. I then realized that some people think I have blocked them or denied them, which I have never done. SO if you have requested to follow me and I haven't approved it will you please let me know and I will go approve it. I feel totally vain writing that and I don't think I have a ton of people wanting to follow me or anything but I also don't want people to think that I have denied them. I've been denied it's not fun.

6. That was an entirely too long paragraph about #twitter.

7. I've started loving the #hashtag. I once thought it was stupid.

8. Remember that time we all got up and watched the royal wedding together? That was so fun. Can we do it again?

9. After years of resisting I finally started keeping a digital calendar. I am a big pens and paper girl but I like the idea that my one calendar on my computer can be synced to my phone, ipad and all of Luke's gadgets also. We will see how long this lasts, I'm a sucker for a paper calendar that I can keep in my purse.

10. I don't carry a purse anymore. I carry a diaper bag with a wallet in it. I also don't dress very cute anymore. I looked in the mirror the other day at my disheveled self and thought "so this is how it happens".

11. We don't have any weekend plans, which is actually nice because we have a very busy summer coming up. I know that because I just looked at my calendar on my computer. Look at me getting all techy.

Cute simple post! The calendar thing makes me laugh because I am the same way!

Don't all mommies do the wallet in diaper bag thingie? No? I have the worlds-flattest-wallet for that purpose. (Thank you Target). Also, I used to do the shower, and put pjs/yoga pants back on. ALL THE TIME when Emeline was little. I think that's perfectly acceptable.

I should probably get to adding you on twitter.

I think that I added you on twitter but not sure whatever happened :) haha

Hope you have a great weekend!

Number 10...story of my life. I'm pretty positive my husband gets aggravated everytime we leave the house because I never feel presentable.

Kodie said...

I just searched for you on Twitter and turns out I tried to follow you awhile ago too :) KodiakBear288

jessica said...

Man, am I glad you said something about Twitter and being denied, (I am going to assume that you don't hate me for some reason!). I was so sad that one of my favoritest bloggers denied my request to be Twitter 'Friends' with them! My account is Jessthenlou. Thanks so much and I look forward to reading your tweets!

Anonymous said...

I think I requested you awhile ago on twitter. I just figured you didn't check it very often especially if you tweet from your phone. I'm mrs_mcj

Stephanie Marie said...

I requested to follow you on twitter, pinky promise that I'm not a creep :) My account is private as well because I am terrified of the people who ARE creeps. @steph_krueger

Enjoy the weekend before heading back to work! I will absolutely read that baby product post whenever you finish it! We are getting ready to register in a few weeks and I am in big time research mode!

The Shabby Princess said...

Yes, can we all please watch the royal wedding again?! That was fun! I'm private on Twitter too, so, I know what you mean about accepting followers and not wanting to sound vain! Ha. I'll forget about it and then I'm like "crap, they've been pending for like a month! Oops!"

Jen said...

Enjoy your last few days at home!

Sky said...

I used to think the hashtag was stupid too. Now, I use one more often than not!

Kim said...

Can't wait to see the post on the baby stuff. I love seeing what other people recommend and even don't recommend :)

Kelly said...

I tried to add you on twitter @kellynn82

I no longer carry a purse anymore or look cute either...I guess that's what happens when you have a 6 week old.

Jenni said...

Michelle said...

I feel the same way about my pen and paper calendar! I really enjoy crossing things off! Ha, but I'm getting an iphone Sunday and I'm already torn on what to do....to digitize my calendar or not to digitize!? So let me know how you like it/how long you keep it up!

Found your blog through my friend Ashley's btw! Been reading for a while now and love it :)

I too went to a digital calendar a couple of months ago. I figured I always have my phone with me AND it automatically syncs to my computer! It took me awhile to not write things down but I think I am finally getting use to it!! Enjoy your weekend!!

I am the same way about calendars/planners. I also just switched to using my phone calendar this past week.

Happiness Is... said...

I hope you're hanging in there today and that tomorrow goes smoothly. I cried like 4 times the day before I went back to work but I am proud to say that 4 weeks later things are great. Good luck!

Waiting for Bulgaria said...

I love my pen and paper calendar even though I have an iPhone. I like marking days off. Good luck going back to work. It's not the easiest thing in the world but it gets easier as time goes on.

Nicole said...

Hope your first day back went okay!!
