Yesterday was one of those days where absolutely everything on my mile-long to-do list seemed insurmountable. So what’s a girl to do? Target. Always Target.
In an effort to snap out of my overwhelmed funk, I picked up a new pillow to decorate the crib (and no, I won’t leave it in there once the baby arrives), power strips, iced coffee packets, heart-shaped baby sunglasses, Greek yogurt, and white picture frames to finally (!) house two of my all-time favorite prints. All the essentials for a successful retail therapy trip.
As soon as I got home, I immediately popped my two prints into the frames and hung them in the nursery / office. I bought both prints long before I knew a baby was in my near future, but when I found out I was having a girl, I knew these two female portraits would work swimmingly in her room. Later on when John got home from work, we tore the room apart in an attempt to divide up the space equally between the nursery and office. But if you saw the room now, it would appear that all we did was make a gigantic mess in the process. I keep reminding myself that like all moving attempts, it will get worse before it gets better. And right now, it is most certainly worse. While the mess didn’t exactly assuage my feelings of being completely overwhelmed, it did remind me that little by little, everything will come together, be it items on a to-do list or the organization of a dual-purpose room.
But if all else fails, there’s always Target.
