Let's talk about changing times..

Hi there.
If you're reading this it means one thing, 
I'm already gone...
I cannot believe that one year could go by so quickly.

^ Me this time last year at 40 weeks, waiting for Mr. Elliott to arrive.
Spoiler he didn't come for 2 more weeks.

I can't even go there with the whole pregnancy/birth story because its just too much, maybe someday I will dedicate a multiple blog post special but right now nope.

Today is my first day back to work and leaving a babe behind, (I always hated to leave my pets but I knew they could hold down fort for a few hours) this time it is different.

I am not a schedule person I need a big commitment like, working for pay to hold me accountable. A work place that requires me to show up at a particular time so I can't procrastinate; I think it's going to be helpful keeping me on track in all areas of life.

& I've worked at the post office a long time so I'm not scared of the job, I'm actually really excited to go back!
I'm just scared to leave Elliott, what's he going to do without me for 4+ hours a day????
Seriously he's a really, really exhausting child..
I'm worried all the babysitters in town are going to go running for the hills after the first day, babysitters must prep themselves for this kind of thing right???

So that's that, I'm back at it.
& what's this going to mean for the blog you ask??

I've been mulling over that one for a long time myself.
I know a blogging schedule is the way to go, but I just admitted to being a terrible scheduler..
However this blog has become way more to me than just a disposable hobby so its on my high priority list to keep going.

At first I thought I could stick to posting Monday, Wednesday, Friday..
I tried to do that the past few weeks and well it was pretty disastrous.
Now I am committing to you Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Hopefully that will allow me to get one post ready on weekends and 1 throughout the weekdays.
(That being said don't hold me to it... looky here this post is posted on a Monday! ;))
(Tomorrow does have a scheduled post though, how organized of me ;))

Trust me I have TONS left to say, I've become majorly blog-vested and I can't wait to see how my posts/life changes in the coming months. Stay Tuned!

*Ooh also- don't think its lost on me how amazing it is to have had the opportunity to stay home with this little ham for an entire year!

It's been the shortest year ever but its also been the longest, was there ever a time Elliott wasn't in our lives????? Oh yeah there was, it was glorious times of freedom.. trips to the grocery store all alone whenever I wanted and sleeping in until noon, I remember ;)

Wish me luck!!
Comment tips and tricks for working/blogging/babying
Help a girl out! :) xx


  1. Good luck Mama! I just decided last week that I will not be returning to work. I was having major anxiety about it and Blake is only 9 months old!
    Hope everything goes smoothly for you. xo

    1. Oooo good for you! It is seriously a tough decision!
      Blake is going to be so happy to have his mama all to himself :) :))

      Today went well, I missed Elliott so much but he was super excited when I got home. One day down, bring on the weekend!! ;))

  2. So... How was it Hun? Good to be back? A bit anxious??

    1. It went so well!! :)))
      The day went by really fast and Elliott was super happy when I got home.
      One day down.. 4 more to go, bring on the weekend!! ;)

      I'm definitely going to sleep good tonight though, I definitely used muscles I hadn't used in a while lolol

    2. Ooooh actually Canada Day!! Forgot about that whooo hoo! That will break up the week a bit :)

  3. Good luck. I found it tough to blog, work, and maintain a family life, too. So I committed to a minimum of two days a week, too. You will do fine. :)

    1. Thanks so much :)
      Blogging is a tough business!
      Here's looking forward to the weekend ;)

  4. awe hope your first day back to work was great!! It's so hard to maintain a blog and a family plus work, sometimes girl I take a break too.

    1. Thanks so much Jessica!
      It's definitely a handful, I have to thank all you ladies because you keep me inspired!

      Today went so well, I'm going to sleep like a baby tonight though ;)

  5. I'm not gonna lie, when I clicked over from Facebook I thought you were announcing you were pregnant again. I was already planning in my head what I was going to make for you. :-) But this is very exciting to! Definitely don't give up on the blog, I just "met" you, and I love following you! Excited for you to be going back to work.

  6. Your pictures are so precious. I know those mixed feelings. So great that you're having them, though---because you loved the past year so much. I hope you stick around, but I totally get how some things just have to take a backseat. Babies get the front seat---figuratively...literally that's not safe :)
