So apparently, I’m nesting. I guess this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise since we’re less than 3 weeks away from our due date. But for a long time, I thought I was just doing the “it’s a new year, I should clean and organize” kick that I go through every year. But it’s February. And it years past, that kick was long over by now.

So it’s nesting.

And let me just say, nesting is a little exhausting. Because when you add those projects onto your job, naps (absolutely necessary now), making dinner, regular cleaning, and time with your husband, there’s not much time or energy left. But I find that some of these organizing, cleaning, and to-do projects become obsessions. Ones that I can’t stop until they’re completely finished.

Take that day Shannon and I cleaned the office. That was hours worth of work! I could have stopped long before we did, just from being too tired to really be efficient. But I couldn’t…. because it was on The List.

Ahh yes, The List.

The List is this ever growing creature that keeps getting jobs added to it that I want to get done before the baby comes. Things for baby, things to deep cleaning, things to make for the house. And purging. Lots of purging. But as soon as I mark off a few things, a few more magically appear. Like when I cleaned the fan in the master bathroom and realized the shower curtain liner needed cleaned too. Or when I had Logan move the living room around and realized just how badly the woodwork needed dusted.

I do realize that none of these things are important for the actual arrival of the baby. But does that make me less obsessed with getting them done? Nope.

Here are some projects I’ve completed from The List that are worth sharing. I’ll post directions on the projects in the next few weeks!

My sister-in-law made the taller cake stand for Christmas. Love it.

Okay, this was important for the baby coming.

Since Baby Girl will be born in March, we'll need something cozy for a few weeks until Indiana weather warms up.

This was actually Logan's job, but I'm loving it when I cook!
