Don't ask. Don't tell.

Dear anyone who is listening-

I always heard that when you are pregnant everyone and their mom will offer their thoughts, ideas and opinions about anything and everything pregnancy and baby related....its true. What these people don't realize is that just because you have a child does not mean you are an expert or that I want to know what you think.

If you know me in real life, then you know I am opinionated (is this an understatement?). The difference between me and other people is that I have learned when to offer my opinion and when to keep my mouth shut.  I understand the value of other's opinions and have been asking a lot of questions throughout my pregnancy and really appreciate everyone who has provided me with their ideas and advice.

The moral of the story: if I don't ask your opinion, PLEASE keep it to yourself.

Thank you!

A new year and a new you...

I have never been a resolution person, but this year I have decided to make a list of things I will strive for. Our lives are going to be turned upside down once this little one comes, so hopefully if I can make some changes in the first 3.5 months they will be habit by the time BK (baby Kelly) joins us.

Be a better housekeeper: I want to be more organized when it comes to cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, etc.

Workout at least 3-4 times a week: I want to keep this up post baby. I have only gained 11 pounds in the last 24.5 weeks and hopefully will keep the last trimester weight gain to a healthy minimum since I started the pregnancy overweight. 

Clean up my mouth: I swear ALL the time and I need to stop!

Pin and make: Pinterest is great but I need to start actually following through with my pins.

What are you resolutions?
