I've been on a quest for simplifying lately. From approaching my blog differently to washing my hair only twice a week, I'm cutting back. I am giving myself room myself to not do it all.
Our days still feel full. We have too many commitments and we're working to cut back as a couple, but in the immediate future, we're guarding our unscheduled time like never before. Part of it is in anticipation of Baby G and part of it comes from feeling plain worn out.

We have been rearranging several spaces, from the kitchen to our bedroom and purging things we don't need/use. A friend asked me if I had started nesting and I'm pretty sure I'm in the pre-nesting phase. I want to nest, but I'm just not there yet. We decided to make an effort to get a few spaces more organized, like our bedroom and we'll turn our attention to baby preparations come mid-May and June.
I've recently tried to cut back in a few areas. I've considered deleting Facebook, but have yet to do so. Can you keep a Facebook page without having a personal Facebook account? Maybe I'll just purge some friends (ouch, that sounds awful), but there are so many people I'm friends with on there that are not really friends.
Momma friends, do you have any advice on things to cut back on? I'm sure some things will just not be a priority any more once motherhood is in full gear.
Until then, I'm preparing my heart and body as I try to rest up for the adventure that is ahead!
