from where i stand #ourproject52

FWIStimbs partially eclipsed by the bump.

Shame on me for failing to keep up with #OurProject52. I’ve missed week six and seven and here we are in the 8th week.

The reason for my absence is simply a lack of time. The last few weeks have been spent trying to clear up our home of … junk!  It’s amazing how much one can hoard  collect year after year. I’m big on less is more when it comes to my personal style, and I’ve decided to extend that approach to my home life as well; and with a newborn on the way, I’m trying to be as effective as possible and keeping things simple. When you have less things, to clean, and put away, it makes life better, hence making time for the things that matter.

The bigger I get the more difficult it is for me to tend to my day to day activities. Cleaning is rough y’all, and although my husband has been stellar in assisting me in keeping our place clean,  my slight OCD tendencies have been in overdrive. I’m from that “if you want something done well, do it yoself” school! I like things done a certain way hahaha. Thank God for a husband that is patient, kind and very understanding of my hormonal imbalance. God bless you Trez, God bless you!


“From where I stand”

From where I stand, I’m amazed at how quickly my bump has grown. Most mamas can agree that pregnancy seems never ending as one begins the final stretch better known as the third trimester. This pregnancy had a rough start but I can say that it’s been for the most part a wonderful journey and we can’t wait to meet baby Betts.

Just a few more weeks to go. I rather count in weeks than months, it makes the time go by faster… it really does.

Until next time.

      Girl, while cleaning, I found a huge bin full of Neriah’s newborn clothes… I was like dang where did this all come from?
      It’s amazing how much stuff we can hold on to. I got rid of clothes, shoes… You know when you get so overwhelmed with stuff and you start throwing things away in hopes of accelerating the cleaning process? that was me this weekend! Smooth Sailing… I look forward to it. xoxo

    Sounds like you’re “nesting” which happens in the 3rd trimester. :) Congratulations on your baby and I wish you the best. Take it easy and try to get extra sleep. :)
