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.
