You guys, I’m so excited about my husband visiting today (the first time in two months) that I woke up at 4am!!!! That or it’s the first night in forever a child hasn’t been all snuggly buggly with me in bed (aka flailing limbs all over me) and maybe I finally got enough sleep. Who knows?!  Oh and also I was absolutely starving. With all my extra time I cleaned out the old coupons from the subscription box coupons list, updated WordPress, and did all sorts of housekeeping.

We have a big huge weekend planned, mostly around the house. Maybe the most exciting thing is that we’re telling the kids they are getting a new baby brother at the end of summer! E’s getting a new bed and Daddy is in charge of that (it’s here, I was in charge of carrying it down half a flight of stairs last week).  We have a modular bed for our daughter, so they are getting stacked! E’s bed is brown and A’s bed is white and we are just going to ignore it for the next 2 years. I’ll post a photo of the finished product on Monday. My awesome neighbor is going to help us get the mattress home from Costco on Saturday!

We also have Kiwi Crate, Kidable AdventuresDarby Smart Easter crafts, Darby Girl will be here (Daddy is going to be SUPER DUPER BUSY because Mommy is writing her final papers for school), and then I have a gigantic pile of squigglies from boxes and Easter gifts and I know he is going to come up with something absolutely amazing because we totally don’t have baskets. Oh and I’ll be defrosting some cupcakes we made with My Bakers Box! It’s also his birthday (day after Easter) so we’ll have to have a party for that too. I admit I ordered a tin of cookies and a cake from Cheryl’s and pressed the easy button on that one. I did get the kids a few pieces of candy for Easter this year (like TWO, seriously TWO) but otherwise that’s MORE than enough sugar.

When you clean your face and you’re not taking a shower, do you actually go in and use cleanser, or just wipes? I cannot stand getting my hair wet for just cleaning my face. It’s dumb. I should just get in there and do it, but I hate it. I forgot to take off my makeup last night so I got up and removed my eye makeup, used wipes, and toner. But actually getting everything all wet? No. I know this is probably bad. I had so much left on my face I was like, ugh, I’m just going to take an extra shower. So I did.

My sitter took the kids to the big regional playground and they have a train. He looks so giant in this photo. Like an actual boy. I think it’s just the iPhone camera because A looks the same size.IMG_2796

And because I have nothing else interesting to say with a brain that woke up at 4am, I speckled my nails!

I’m linking up with Thursday Thoughts with Jennifer!

    Ahhhhh, your husband is there! Yay!!!!

    I will not step foot in the shower without getting my hair wet. It ends up getting all damp and the ends get wet no matter what, so I just get it all wet and don’t wash it. But if I am just washing my face, I just push my hair back. Somehow it does’t get all icky that way?

      I don’t understand showering without washing your hair. I think because my hair is so fine, if I get any part of it wet, it’s basically all wet. I just have an issue soaping up my face and then basically flicking water a=t it to rinse off, doesn’t work for me.

      Yes, he’s here!!!

    Oh, I usually take a shower at night but, if I don’t I put my hair up in a ponytail and wash my face with Clean & Clear and then use some makeup remover wipes to take off any residue. Then I use eye moisturizer and night moisturizer.

    I am so happy for you that your husband will finally be there to take some of the pressure off you for a few days. I can’t imagine what is going to be like for you with a newborn and him gone. Well, I can. My husband lived with me but was in graduate school and commuting 3 hours per day…so he didn’t help out at all. It was so hard, and one of the major reasons I stopped at 2 kids.

    I usually use wipes on my face at night. I don’t use wipes on my eyes, though, since my eyes are too sensitive. So on days I have eye makeup on, I either leave it on, or I remove it at night with water.

      Oh we are still waiting to see how everything shakes out, we’re waiting on a lot of things, but if for some reason I don’t have to be in DC but he still has to be in VT I will probably go be with my family. It’s too spendy to move everything to VT without something firm. Especially real estate wise. It’s more expensive to live there than here even.

        The joys of contract work. Uncertainty. I hope that everything works out so that you can be with your husband.
