Organizing my Chaos

I really try to keep things organized around our home and in my life. However, since about 1/2 way thru my pregnancy with Hudson I feel like things have just been spiraling out of control around here. I have managed to get a little bit of our house back in order but with a newborn, 2 1/2 year old, a husband and two dogs it never seems to stay that way too long. But this weekend I have set some goals for myself and one is to come up with an organized plan for my days. I am going to break up my cleaning duties into a few rooms each day in hopes that it will not be too overwhelming to me each week and I can actually manage to get thru the whole house in a week. I will let you know how that goes.

I have also decided to start Weight Watchers on Monday. I only gained 10 lbs while pregnant with Hudson and I have managed to lose about 20 since his birth. Which is great I know, but I am not happy yet. So I have decided to do the WW thing and see how that does. I am also going to try and manage a little workout or walk as much as possible. I will also keep you posted on how that goes.

I am also going to try and cut back on my time online during the week-it just keeps me from the things I need to be doing. So I am going to only get online 2 times a day-once in the morning and once in the afternoon/early evening. Hopefully this will make a difference in my day.

Well if you are still reading this long rambling post-thanks!

Easter Fun

Brad went out of town this week for work so Grandma-ma & Papa came to help us! On Wen. we backed some bunny cupcakes to help celebrate the upcoming Easter holiday. Austin had fun helping with the cupcakes (he really enjoys helping me in the kitchen recently). Of course he also enjoyed tasting the cupcakes. Once they were all decorated and cute we took some over to our neighbors and then Austin took some to school for his Easter party, and we also sent some home with Grandpa for him and Grandma.

Some photos of Grandma-ma and Austin decorating the cupcakes!

We made these cute little "carrots" for Austin's friends at school.
