  1. Our new furniture came in! I know it sounds immensely dumb, but I have been overanalyzing this decision forever. Furniture is expensive, and I feel like we have found the perfect balance in our home (finally) of classic investment pieces, family antiques, and budget items that are just so functional and special to us.
  2. I’m 32 weeks pregnant! So, essentially, it feels like I’m giving birth tomorrow. But my due date is April 5th. And with it not being Valentine’s Day yet, I might as well be pregnant for another year.
  3. I keep having a recurring dream that I’m in the hospital with our new baby and everyone keeps calling her by the name we picked, and I cry because that’s not her name. I have no idea what that means.
  4. Tomorrow, I’m doing my first professional photoshoot for my business in YEARS!!! And it’s all so I can launch my Pinterest Master Course by Valentine’s Day. I could throw up. I’m so nervous. Check back here for more details as it all launches.
  5. Speaking of my business, I am in a really good place right now, for the first time in a long time. I just really love my clients and I’m passionate about the work they’re doing. It feels amazing. I always knew I would work in the marketing industry, but working one to one with people I hand pick just feels so rewarding.
  6. If you’ve been living under a rock (or just not paying attention to my socials) I have become addicted to “stripping.” And no, it’s not what you think. It’s a spring cleaning thing, not a new side hustle I’ve taken up.
  7. Monday is the launch of my Spring Cleaning series on YouTube! It’s going to look a little different than it did last year, because I’m super pregnant and can’t do all the things I would normally do. But there’s still plenty to be done around this house, and lots of motivation coming your way.
  8. My heartburn this pregnancy has been UNREAL. It was really bad last time, but with this baby, I keeping waking up in the middle of the night choking and gagging and it scares the crap out of Tanner. I know that’s probably too much information, but just in case someone is out there experiencing the same thing, I want to let you know – Alka Seltzer Chews work approximately 1000 times better than TUMS. And even though the TUMS smoothies taste better, I’m pretty sure they don’t do anything at all.
  9. Annie is in the thick of independent pretend play right now, and it’s adorable. She dresses up her rocking horse in pearl necklaces and has a “mommy” doll and a “daddy” doll that always go on car rides.
  10. On the first day of Spring, Millie will be celebrating her fifth gotcha day with us. And even though we don’t know for sure how old she is (rescue problems) the vet seems to think she’s about 11. She’s really started to show her age this year, and I’m on the verge of tears just thinking about it.
  11. I got an orchid. Now placing bets on how long it takes for me to kill it.
  12. I made these two phone backgrounds for you! Hope it helps get you in the mood for Valentine’s Day! Enjoy!
