So first, check out my sweet new blog design thanks to Shannon (designer) and Kate (giveaway hostess)!
Isn't it pretty? 
I love Shannon's designs and she is so easy and fun to work with. 
Thanks to both of you ladies :) 

I've been really thinking about blogging and my lack there of lately.
Mainly how I miss it and I really should be better about being on top of it but in the same breathe I realize that right now I'm not completely into it.

I think this is mainly because my brain has been a million other places.
I feel like there is so much to be done before BabyO arrives.
Not only things around the house but just generally educating myself on what to expect, birthing methods, nursery safety, etc. 

When I get inside my own brain I tend to overwhelm myself.
I don't do well with prioritizing and it feels like Kev and I are always on the move, on top of working 8 hours a day.
I really have no idea how some people work, blog, and have social completely throws me for a loop. 

We have had a lot of fun things going on with friends and family lately so I can't say that I'm to upset about blogging falling to the wayside.
I realize I'd rather be out and doing then sitting and writing about it, but I suppose that's why I started a blog! 
I wanted to document all of these memories!

Things like this pregnancy.
I've been wanting to document my pregnancy without boring the pants off of all of you because I know it reality you don't care that much.
I've been writing things down on my own but have yet to meet my own expectations. 

I've decided to set up some rules for myself once some of the upcoming events we have are out of the way to take some time and actually be productive.
I'm very good at having the intentions of getting something done but end up just hanging out and relaxing instead.
 Well no more.
I hope in the near future that blogging becomes one of those productive points in my life again.
I suppose right now I can't even promise that, but here's to hoping!

How do you guys find the time to work, go out with friends/family, and get things done around the house?
Do you have a set of rules for yourself?
How about any good time management tips or even better motivators to get me off my butt at times?

Love the design :)

As for finding time to get everything done.. I typically work out as soon as I get home from work. Sometimes I work out first thing in the morning (love the feeling of it being done for the day). I usually clean the house on the weekends and if it doesn't get done one weekend that's ok. It can be done the following weekend. Laundry day is Sunday afternoon while I have my weekly pot of sauce on the stove, and we typically go out with our friends on Saturdays so Sundays are more for relaxing and getting things done around the house.

LOVE the new look! I was the exact same...I Couldn't find the interest in blogging because everything I went to write about seemed so insignificant compared to the huge changes I was going through. I wanted to write about the pregnancy, not just all the time. I'm trying to find a happy medium!
