a lazy day at our house {in pics}

We are having a very lazy day at our house today. :) I was so tired this morning, I took a bath first thing and then took a nap at 11:30 {!}. I think the baby must be growing or something! {Please don't get too big, little one!}

Instead of what I had planned, I thought I would share a few pics of what life is looking like today {other than me sitting on the couch, hahah!}:

Rob and the boys assembled this bookcase for me last night... I scored it on a big clearance in store at Target several weeks ago, and I was excited to see it come together as our new "hutch". I had to immediately decorate it with our serving dishes before I went to bed. As I was pulling out dishes and moving chairs around, Rob kept asking me what I was doing and I kept telling him I don't know, I just need to re-organize the house! ;)

i love it with my coral globe and instagram poster

I also finished the last of the living room gallery wall last night too. At some point I'll take a few real pictures to share with you! {Probably after I change it three more times. ;)}

Tonight we're having spaghetti for dinner, and I started the marinara/meat sauce early and made a lunch out of it too. {yum!}
my dutch oven steal- I use it all the time!
Of course, no matter what I do, this little baby stays on my mind as he changes position all day. I feel entire legs rolling around in there and wonder how he manages to stay put in such a tight space. I think I'm going to miss feeling him move in this big belly, but I keep telling him mama's ready to see him. :) 

I washed all the sheets and towels last night too, and his first outfit, diapers, wipes, and blankets are all ready to go on the bassinet:

Now we're just playing the waiting game. :) We're having friends over for dinner, and I have to teach a weightlifting class tonight, but for now I'm intentionally resting more and enjoying a little bit of nothing which includes browsing the newest PB catalogs:

Do you have lazy days too? I'm trying to learn to listen to my body and chill out before the next big thing happens. :) Who knows how much longer I get to rest like this with just four older kids! :)


  1. Good for you, having enough energy to do such a beautiful job. The shelves are lovely. I am 51 and have two girls, one 22 and one 11. I miss the baby days too. Everything goes by so quickly. I pray you will continue to do so well. My oldest daughter and I enjoy your posts. Thanks for all the great ideas.

  2. you deserve to have days like this although i can relate to how difficult it is to do. i had one myself today - i also woke up and wanted to turn right around and go back to sleep. the difference is....i had breakfast and then i did it! two more hours - it was great.

    oh and the decor photos were lovely!

  3. active resting (follow that?) is not laziness.

  4. Love what you did with the hutch it's beautiful. You are doing a great job...you've carried him for almost 9months and your body is letting you know you need to rest. Get all the rest you can before he gets here. I have been resting for past month...in a way it's nice but I have so much to do. I have to learn to give up control on that and allow my body to do what it's got to and that's get better. Thanks for sharing I always look forward to your post.


  5. Your home is beautiful!! I loved reading about your evening with the kids on the other post. I have a lot of evenings alone with ours and sometimes don't enjoy them like I could. You get so much done! It just blows me away...definitely makes me feel lazy! ;) I challenged myself to unplug last weekend and it went well! Planning on keeping it up, it felt so good. Hopefully it will carry on through the week as well :) have a wonderful weekend!!

  6. Nesting much? ;) lol Enjoy it. Love your globe!!!
    Lazy days aren't really lazy when you have a baby on board - you are busy growing important stuff!!! :)
    Praying and waiting. :)
