This has been an amazing ride for Keith and I. We moved in December and started the new year in full swing preparing for our little one, decorating and organizing our new home, and working to pay for all these future expenses we have.
It has been hard to keep up with bullet journaling as it takes a lot of time to create the layouts. I decided to keep up with my organization by printing out some pre-made layouts from some bloggers I am familiar with. This is something that I have used since graduating college before getting into bullet journaling last year. I'm a planner, but I'm also a visual planner and I am not successful using digital programs or apps. I like to physically see it and write it down, scratch things out, etc. It really helps me wrap my head around what I need to do. I can use my phone for some things, however, it is hard to remember to check these apps. When I unlock my phone, the first thing I do is go to Facebook out of habit and it leads to an hour of unnecessary surfing unproductive things.
The attached link is where I got all my printables for my planner. I have used her printables since 2014 and have always found them very useful and productive. They are simplistic and keep my brain on the right track(and they are free). My favorite layout is the bills paid layout that I used when creating my bill layout for my bullet journal. It puts a year of bills on one page and allows you to keep track of when and if you paid them. I've used it every year since I found it.
I also created a binder for Adaline to document daily activity, growth charts, doctor visits, etc. (more on that later)
I have been finishing up baby Kiesch's room over the last two weeks. It has been so much fun planning and researching all these ideas. I'm so excited to share pictures I took yesterday of the finished product. The only thing missing is our little one.
Every grandparent and great-grandparent has contributed something to this room, which was something so important to me. It turned out better than I imagined and I'm so glad that it is ready and waiting on her rather than the other way around. Keith and I stayed up late a few nights putting the furniture together. Keith, also brought out his handy-man skills to refinish my old toy box that my dad built for me when I was younger. I'm just so thankful for such a supportive family that are just as excited about our little girl as we are.
Now that May is here, the countdown begins and it is just a waiting game for me. I know she will come when she is ready, but the anticipation is nerve-racking. Prayers for a safe delivery and healthy baby are much appreciated.
Until Next Time
