Five on Friday

as our due date gets closer, the weeks are flying by even faster! only four more Fridays {after today} left before her arrival {if she is right on schedule} and I cannot believe it! I feel a bit conflicted – excited yet nervous, prepared but I need to do just a few more things, ready for the hubby and I to become parents yet sad to be closing our “newlyweds” chapter and physically like I’m doing well but I can barely roll out of bed myself, etc. I’m sure these are typical feelings when a couple is less than a month away from adding a little human to their world, but I can still feel a little crazy now and then! in effort to keep my mind at ease and relaxed I figured a five on Friday “brain dump” would be great to feel organized before the weekend!

I know it will be a whole post in itself, but packing a hospital bag has put on so much pressure! its only for a couple of days, but how can I possibly have everything I need for a little person I’ve never met?! I’ve found list after list on Pinterest and used them all to create my own MEGALIST. thank goodness Todd’s frame of mind is a little more logical than mine at the moment to talk me out of packing the kitchen sink!  I mean, all of our family lives within a couple miles of our house if we forgot anything but I am still tempted to pack like I did for our two week honeymoon! {I’m definitely a self-proclaimed over-packer}

miss mini michaels’ closet is already full…yet I found myself on the Gap and Old Navy websites this week! she is going to be adorable next holiday season! can’t. stop. won’t. stop.

with just 4 weeks left to prepare, I really want to step up my meal planning game! we’ve been collecting ready to heat meals in the freezer to cook those first few weeks when the babe arrives, but we need more! can’t wait to try these couple of recipes from Pinterest that I hope will freeze well and be easy to heat up in a pinch!

I saw this headband on Mint and Arrow’s Instagram a couple weeks back and I’m wishing I ordered it sooner for our little valentine! {nothing haunts you like the stuff you didn’t buy, am I right?}

I’ve been loving my 2015 Emily Ley Simplified Planner, and even more all of the free printables she has been creating! how’s everyone doing with their 2015 organization goals?!

One thought on “Five on Friday

  1. I felt the same with all 3 of our hospital bags (1 for me, baby and husband). we packed 6 outfits for her as we had no idea what size she would be and if she would need a short or long sleeved outfit. I packed way more than I needed for sure. If you are a new mom like me – make sure you pack lanolin cream. That’s the one thing I didn’t have that was a must have the first 2 weeks of breastfeeding.

    Those are some super cute outfits!
