Maternity leave – FINALLY!

Today is my first day of maternity leave. I woke up with a cold but felt better as the day progressed. But in true VF style, I could not sit still. I did the washing, walked the dog, did some weeding in the yard, vacuumed the nursery and wiped down the kitchen cupboards. More importantly, I packed the baby bag for the hospital and will be packing mine tomorrow. 

Now that I have a bit more time, I should be able to post on a more frequent you'll all be hearing a little (LOT) more of me!

I have 18 days until D day……OMG!

P.S. Will be drawing the winner of my giveaway and announcing on tomorrows’ post. Last chance to enter here.

Baby Shower

A few weeks ago my sister S and a couple of my closest friends KT & HT organized a beautiful baby shower for me!

We played a few pregnancy/ baby games and ate and ate and ate some more. The boys (Hubby K ,RE and CC) stayed for the party and were in the background preparing the food or taking pictures.

Thanks so much to everyone who helped that day in preparing, attending and cleaning. I am blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful family and kind friends!

Another big shout out and thanks to HT, S and KT - what an amazing day!

My attempt to clean out the garage

Hi! I hope everyone had a safe and happy Easter! I ate too many chocolate eggs and still trying to recover…..can you really overindulge on chocolate during Easter?

A few weeks ago the nesting instinct bit me in the butt- AGAIN! At 8.5 months pregnant, I had a strong urge to clean out our garage one Saturday morning. I don’t think we’ve ever cleaned the garage and we’ve been in our home close to four years. It has come to the point where it is super dusty, dirty and full of junk my collection of furniture to restore. Anyway, it took me a whole Saturday to clear and move items around  – drag rest drag rest drag rest – I even wiped down and cleaned the walls. Crazy? Probably.

Unfortunately everything took me twice as long as I am twice as big. OH so much to do so little time eeek!

Here are the before shots:

And here it is tidy, fresh and so clean clean (this is the best I could do at this stage of my pregnancy!):

Now we can actually use the garage for its intended purpose…to house the car!
