Baby L Watch 2012.

October 11, 2012 in maternity leave

I’m two days past my due date.

And this is my third day of maternity leave.

So far?

I’ve deep cleaned every carpet in our house;

I’ve made several freezer meals — including chicken pot pies, mexican dip and buffalo chicken dip {recipe + directions to come!};

I made a batch of homemade pop tarts to be frozen for easy breakfast snack {directions to come!};

I crafted a Halloween wreath;

I hung all of our wedding photos throughout the house;

I made awesomely delicious — and organic! — pumpkin spice coffee creamer {recipe to come!};

I hand painted our street address on a pumpkin for the front yard;

I cleaned out, organized, and wrote down an inventory of our refrigerator, freezer and our big free-standing freezer;

I, finally, found a set of placemats that I love;

I washed all the sheets and towels in our house;

I made a yummy fall trail mix — which I’ve been snacking on non-stop!;

and I slept for a good 9 hours for two nights straight!

I would call the last few 2 days a complete success! If Baby L decides to stay put for today — which, let’s face it, he likely will — I’ve got a lot more nesting up my sleeve! πŸ˜‰

Maybe if I was pregnant I could accomplish all of my house cleaning and reorganizing. I still have wedding and shower gifts to put away!

I took forever to put that stuff away, too. I promise! Haha! πŸ™‚

LOL – apparently, yes! Haha! It really has lit a fire underneath us for the last 9 months, too. We’ve gotten a lot of household projects done that were long overdue! Haha!

And that pumpkin is too cute. I may have to steal that idea.

Dang, your nesting is in full gear!! I never got quite that ambitious! I love the pumpkin, I may need to be a copycat.
