It has been quite the week this week, so I thought I’d share a few things that have been exciting or brought us some happiness! It’s been super busy, but all in a good way, and I’m excited to see what April will bring! There’s still lots to do before the baby comes in May, but the fact that it’s now April really lights a fire under my butt to get some of these things done. Here are 5 exciting things about this week:
ONE: HARRY POTTER MIDNIGHT RELEASE PARTY!
If you know me, you know that I love Harry Potter. And you probably also partied with me at a midnight release party before, but if you haven’t, now is your chance! McNally Robinson is having a midnight party for the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and I NEED to go! You can find more information here, but it’s going to be a blast and I can’t wait! I will bring a 2 month old baby with me, don’t think I won’t!!
TWO: CELEBRATE BY LAUREN CONRAD
I’ve been waiting for this book for a couple of months now, and I’m so excited that it’s finally here and that I have it! It came out Tuesday, but McNally didn’t have it in stock until Thursday, but it doesn’t matter because it’s in my hot little hands now and I am really enjoying reading through it!
THREE: GETTING THE BABY’S ROOM READY
This week has been filled with getting the decor and stuff ready for the new baby’s room, and I’m so happy with the way it’s been going. We’re not going to have a crib in there for a while, but we’ve got the bassinet in there for now, as well as the dresser/changing table. I just need to do a few canvas pieces and then hang everything and it’ll be done! This is so nice because we didn’t really have a “theme” for Autumn’s room beforehand, just a colour. It’s nice that this is coming along and it’ll be a real room even before this little one gets to sleep in there
FOUR: APRIL DECLUTTER CHALLENGE
My declutter challenge starts today! If you’re wanting to join, make sure you share the things you’re getting rid of on instagram and use #aprildeclutterchallenge. It’s such a great time to get rid of a bunch of stuff. It’s a nice excuse for me to do some spring cleaning at the same time, and it frees up space as well! When my husband and I moved into our house two years ago, the H-word got thrown around a little bit by one/some of our friends (*whispers* hoarders) and ever since then I’ve been trying to purge the useless things in our lives as much as possible. I’ve gotten rid of things between last April and this April, of course, but my MAJOR purge is in April. This is the second annual declutter challenge I’ve done, and I’m looking forward to it. (And don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @Alysalovely 😉 )
FIVE: SELF-HOSTED WEBSITE!!
You’re probably wondering why my site looks like this right now. It’s because I’ve been in the process of transferring it over to being totally self-hosted for the last week and a half… and believe me, it’s been a process!! It finally got fully transferred over last night (yay!!) so I’m going to be prettifying it later on today when it’s not 1:00am with a baby crying to be fed at the same time. I’m excited that it’s all there though and that I can go forward and make the website even more me! 🙂
