Pregnancy Wishes and Chocolate Dreams

I may be 34 weeks pregnant and I may be using that as an excuse to polish off the chocolate cake left on my kitchen counter.

Thanks to some lovely ladies at my church, I had a baby “sprinkle” last week with some of my close girlfriends and church ladies. One of the hostesses, Becca, made a super yummy chocolate cake. BTW, “super yummy” doesn’t do this cake justice. No, this isn’t the pregnancy talking. This is seriously the most amazing chocolate cake I’ve ever had. Several other attendees agreed with my sentiments.

The unfortunate, yet fortunate, thing was that there were many slices left over and, of course, they got sent home with me. And I might have gotten up in the middle of the night 2 nights ago and had a slice with a glass of milk at like 4am. :-/

I have 2 slices left and I’m certain they will be polished off today. I’ll spare you the gory details of exactly how many slices I’ve consumed in the past 5 days.

If you’re interested in the recipe you can find it here!!! Now I just need an excuse to make this cake myself. I mean, The Husband doesn’t like sweets but maybe President’s Day is reason enough to celebrate.  You think?

Until next time Mommas 🙂


Adventures in Organizing

I’m an organizing machine these days. I’ve tackled just about every major organization project I had on my list and OH MY GOODNESS have we purged A LOT of stuff over the past several weeks. In addition to purging, we’ve finally started taking advantage of our attic space that we rarely used before.

In the midst of all this cleaning, purging and organizing I’ve started to really take notice of ways to make my life more efficient. Being a busy mompreneur means I don’t have time to waste digging through a messy closet to find something or walking from one end of the house to another for the 47th time to get something. So, here’s some of my organization/home efficiency tips…

  1. Take advantage of every available space! Is there room under your bed to fit anything? Think storing vertically…not just horizontally! Think about utilizing backs of doors for additional storage or stacking storage bins.
  2. Speaking of…storage bins are a gift from Heaven above! They are affordable and declutter any space in an instant.
  3. Command hooks are a woman’s best friend! I hate hammering nails into the walls and even more so when The Husband is not home to help me. But I can manage a command hook all by myself and there’s no damage done to the walls in the process.
  4. Keep a stash of basic cleaning supplies stored in every bathroom and under the kitchen sink. This is something I’ve done for years now. Both of our bathrooms have clorox wipes, toilet bowl cleaner and a toilet brush on hand. This makes for quick and easy cleaning when you notice things are getting out of control. No running back and forth through the house to grab the cleaning products when you need to clean.

Now that the organizing is nearly done we are moving on to some deep cleaning projects. I hate deep cleaning. Hate. It.

Did I mention we are also in the midst of trying to complete Baby Girl’s nursery? When it rains, it pours.

Until next time Mommas 🙂
