Week in the Life 2015 {Tuesday}

Tuesday was another at home day. Most of my days lately are.

Some mornings I wake up with AJ's alarm (between 4:10am and 5:15am, depending on if he is going to the gym). Other mornings I sleep through it and wake up later. Tuesday was a later day. Fortunately! But my mornings almost always start out with Cheerios.

I've been re-watching The Office on Netflix lately. Right now, I'm mid season 8, and definitely noticing the change from Steve Carell's departure from the show. That is the worst part about binge watching, a decline that seemed gradual in real time just smacks you in the face when you watch the episodes one after another.

I was also working on yesterday's Week in the Life blog post...and you can still see Monday's laundry hanging on the drying rack (as well as some pictures that still need to be hung).

Relaxing after lunch, enjoying how much this baby likes to move after I've eaten!

Most of the afternoon was spent working on unpacking and organizing. I'd been putting off unpacking this box of clothes, since most won't fit anyway. But I pulled out the cardigans, which I can still wear once the weather cools off, and packed the rest up into rubbermaid bins to go into storage for a little while.

Then I decided to tackle my vanity + make up. And watch a bit of Parks and Rec.

I was inspired by the result to work on a few other areas of our bedroom that are often overlooked.

All of my hair products, moisturizers and spa things were sorted through and ones that were expired were tossed. Things I use daily were put in the orange crate (from our wedding), and the others were put in the linen closet with the rest of the "extra" toiletries. I feel like I can use my things now, because I can see them!

And I managed to finally plug in my beside lamp and alarm clock. Seriously, I can't believe it has taken me this long to organize our bedroom. Well, yes, I can. Its always the last room I work on, because I can just shut the door and no one else sees it but us. But it feels so good to have everything organized in here now.

And then it was Tums time. I wasn't immune to heartburn before, but so many things cause it now that I never knew could. Like fruit snacks (which I probably shouldn't be eating anyway, but they're better than candy, right?)

We had kind of a mess up at dinner tonight. The chicken I planned to cook didn't defrost as quickly as I'd hoped (it will be dinner tomorrow night). Fortunately, I had eggs and potatoes in the fridge, so we had breakfast for dinner!

There wasn't much on TV tonight that captured our interest. So AJ decided to read while I worked on this blog post and watched the Mets game on my kindle.

And that's what we are doing now. Well, that and hoping that the tornado watch we are under doesn't become a warning. I really don't want to go hang out in our laundry room basement in my pjs with my neighbors!

You may have already talked about this and I missed it, but are you teaching tis school year or just taking it easy waiting for your little one?

Love the organizing! Isn't it funny how great you feel once you do something simple like organize your vanity? Haha! I do that all the time with dinner too! Luckily I usually have something planned for later in the week that doesn't require defrosting and we can fix that!
