Random Little Things

One thing I have learned over the past couple of weeks is that functioning on very little sleep isn't conducive to productivity. I literally feel like I accomplish nothing all day...whenever I have a spare minute it's like my mind goes blank and I can't think of a thing I need to get done. For someone who thrives on list making and planning and always working on some type of project, this is a strange thing to be going through.

But I'm trying to embrace this crazy little period in my life by enjoying zoning out in front of reality TV marathons for a large portion of my day. This is something I normally would never do because I would constantly be thinking about all the time I'm wasting, but now...it's like my brain just needs to take a break. I highly recommend Million Dollar Listing and House Hunters to anyone with a little down time. Things I haven't enjoyed so much? The Real Housewives of Orange County and Married to Medicine. Good Lord, the drama. Also, Dr. Phil is hit or miss. See what my life has come to? It's insanity!

But I do have a few things I actually need to accomplish over the next few days. Number one being thank you notes....I STILL haven't done this, and my showers were almost two months ago. It's awful. I'm embarrassed. But yet I still can't let that motivate me to pick up a pen and get it done. Also, birth announcements. We had Grayson's newborn photos done last week, and I need to pick out my announcement and get things done ASAP. But that's yet another thing that I keep putting off. I'd rather lay on the couch with little Grayson on my chest and Addie on my feet and watch reruns of How I Met Your Mother.

Mommies of the world, PLEASE tell me that I'll find my long lost motivation before too long. I'm hoping it wasn't sucked out of me right along with the baby somehow. Seems possible.

I did accomplish something last night though. I made this recipe for Nutella cookies that I've had pinned forever. I have to confess something: I'm not a Nutella fan. I just don't get what all the fuss is about. I've had this jar of Nutella sitting in my cabinet for months and I just don't ever have the urge to use it, so I decided I might as well give these cookies a try and see. And they are pretty phenomenal I must say. I made a few adjustments to the recipe because it was super duper dry, like adding a bit of peanut butter and a few teaspoons of water. But yeah, I'm definitely a fan. Highly recommend.

And that's pretty much that. No rhyme or reason to this post, just like there is no rhyme or reason to anything going on in my brain. Until I have my wits about me this is probably what you'll be getting around here....honest ramblings from a brand new mommy. What more could you ask for? And because no post is complete without photos, feast your eyes on my beautiful child.


  1. Look how productive you are--you wrote a post! That's gotta count for something :) And I'm a big fan of Million Dollar Listing too.

  2. I prefer Million Dollar Listing NY myself. And it's ok to not love nutella. It has the same nutrient content as Betty Crocker Chocolate icing. Still delicious but probably shouldn't eat it with a spoon or anything. And don't fret too much, we'll still be here to read whenever you get around to blogging but Grayson won't be a baby forever!

  3. Awwww your baby is absolutely adorable! xx


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment...each and every one makes my day just a little bit brighter!
