on a to-do list...

I love this little nug.

This week I will:

…enjoy and any all snuggle time with this little peanut. Even when she decides that a thirty-minute nap is sufficient for the entire day and I get absolutely nothing else done.

…perfect babywearing with my new Maya wrap! I want to use it at least once a day—even though the weather is supposed to be in the 90s on Wednesday and I will surely die a slow and violent death with a baby sleeping on my chest. (Are we sure it isn't July? Really?)

…add at least five new items to my etsy shop. At this point in the game, there's no knowing how much crafty time I'll have in each day, but I want to try and get at least one thing done each day. I need it to feel like "me", if that makes any sense at all.

…continue playing catch-up with my email inbox. Hold me.

…do one brave thing.

…do six silly things.

…rock the messy-bun without shame.

…talk with each of my sisters, who I miss like crazy. And also secretly plan a future where we're all living on the same street and everything is perfect and happy.

…decorate for the new season. Although I'm not really a Halloween-decorating sort of girl, I'm definitely all over autumn colors. I adore wreaths, leaves and pumpkins. And tea lights that smell like baked goods, of course.

  1. My to-do list this week also includes autumn decorating. I'm currently enjoying my pumpkin spice candle and planning to make a sparkly fall wreath. I just wish the weather would cool about twenty degrees.

  2. I think this is a wonderful list! And if nothing but snuggling happens that's alright too ;)

    You have 90 degree weather and here in Colorado Springs we had high 70's one day and then snow the next! Melted within a day but still, nuts!

  5. I also live in southern California and was disappointed to see it will be 90 Wed & Thurs. Last week was so nice! Hopefully the cooler weather will come back. Good luck with your list!

  10. Hey there little nugget!

    Also, October is the hottest month in So Cal. I remember that from my San Diego days. WTH is that about, am I right?

  11. Ah, pictures of Eisley. Always makes my day! :)

    Here in Florida, it actually feels somewhat like fall. Cool in the morning (like 70s cool which is laughable in the Northern states I suppose, heh) but then back in the high 80s, 90s in the afternoon. Fall? What is that?!

  13. Sounds like a great to do list. I especially love that part about you and your sisters all living on the same street. That really would be perfect.

  14. What a great list! :) If only we could have a street like the gals on Desperate Housewives....just the locations...not all the scandalousness! ;) It would be awesome to have all the people you love on one street!

  18. She's a doll! I prefer fall decor over Halloween too. But may have to put some Halloween stuff up this year, my 7 yr old came home from the bus yesterday and the first words out of his mouth were "Mom, I really think we need some Halloween decorations outside, like all the neighbors"

  19. The extent of my Halloween decorations is pumpkins and leaves, so I'm right there with you! I love Halloween, but I prefer the more homey, traditional decor.

    Eisley is such a pretty little thing! What a sweet little smile. You must melt on an hourly basis :)
