to-do list

There were so many things I had on my to-do list when I was pregnant.

And then all this and this and this and this happened.

Kinda put my to-do list on hold (I don't really like others to do the things on my to-do list...the hubs and/or my mom would have been more than happy to attempt to complete the list, but much like the journey being more important than the destination, doing the thing, whatever it is, is just as important to me as having the finished product).

So...I'm back and ready to tackle a new and revised to-do list.

Don't worry, I'm keeping my expectations low at first. I know I have two little tinies and it will take longer than it used to to get a task done. But I'm ready for the challenge.

So...here goes:

1 - Finish the boys' room. Of course the boys sleep and play (if you can call it that, they mostly just lay around and kick their legs, which is SUPER CUTE) in their room now, but I want to finish all the things I had planned for the room. So...this number gets a few bullets underneath.

1a - Cover the lamp shade with fabric I already have - all the materials are present, just need to do the work.

1b - Make name signs for the boys' beds (we know which beds they sleep in, but once we start getting sitters, it's going to be helpful to have everything labeled.

1c - finish knitting the quilt I started for one of them and start and finish the other one. This one's going to take a while, but dag-nabbit...I'm going to finish.

1d - Sell the cloth diapers that we had intended to use but are now not (if anyone's interested in a pretty good collection of used cloth diapers, I'm your girl!)

1e - Hang the crib mobiles.

2 - I would like to rearrange some of the art in our house. I get bored rather quickly and we don't have the time and/or money and/or energy to paint our house, so I'd just like to redo some things.

3 - Wipe down the baseboards. I try to do this every spring...I'm a little late. It's so easy just to take one room an evening and just do it.

4 - Get rid of clutter (unfortunately, this is one of my MAJOR downfalls in life...I'm a collector of junk stuff and have a hard time putting things away. The hubs is VERY patient with me). Mostly I just need to find a place for a bunch of stuff and if I can't...GET RID OF IT. That's much easier said than done. I think I will have to tackle one room at a time again...we'll see how that goes.

5 - I would like to do something like this to all the plain white onesies I bought with every intention of making funny/spectacular.



I LEARVE PB & J. And it's perfect for my two boys. Wonder what other combinations I could come up with that aren't like "I was planned...I was a surprise". I don't like that one.

6 - Ebay or craigslist maternity clothes and baby clothes that the boys have already grown out of (sniff sniff!), as well as a bunch of bottles and other things that we don't use anymore. Use that money to do something fun...or buy more diapers!

That's enough for now, right? The to-do list gets so long and I get overwhelmed. Here's hoping I get at least a few things checked!

Happy Friday and have a great weekend.

  1. I love the PB & J onesies. A good friend just bought a bunch of white onsies and dyed them all fun colors. I'd love to do something like that...but my to-do list is already too long. I'm 35 weeks now. So, not much longer! :)
    P.S. I cried when I had to pack up my daughter's newborn clothes. They grow out of them way too quickly!

  3. I love the onsies! So cute! I'm terrible about to-do lists, I normally just make them in my head and then forget about it! Doh!

  4. Hello! I've enjoyed following your blog, I found it via Edible Perspective soon after I found out I too was pregnant with twins! My boy/girl twins were born in May, and am actually interested in your cloth diapers! We're ready to make the switch now that our kiddos are almost 9lbs. Could you email me what you have/prices? Thanks so much! The boys are adorable! Keep posting cute pics!

  5. Hi! I'm interested in the cloth diapers you're selling. I'm also a new mom of twins (boy/girl, born in may) and I've enjoyed following along with you during your pregnancy and the twins' first few months! Any info on the diapers you could email me would be great! Im so tired of disposables!
