Over the next couple weeks, I’m going to step away from all the typical organization posts to share some of the fun pregnancy and baby related things I’ve been learning along the way. On April 24th we welcomed our first, Declan, and it’s been quite the wild ride since!

There’s been so many home projects that I want to get to before the baby is born. I had grand aspiration of organizing every nook and cranny of our home. Then reality set in and I’m having to really prioritize which projects MUST be done now and which I could live with being unfinished for a while.

There’s so many creative & impressive decorated Easter egg tutorials on the web these days. Some just absolutely blow my mind. With my DIY decorations, I’m more of an easier the better type of gal. I’ve had enough Pinterest Fails to write a book (or at least a really funny blog post), so today I’m sharing my tried and true way to color Easter eggs that always turn out the way they’re supposed to.

With spring cleaning tips spreading across the web this time of year, I like to change it up and showcase an organizing process that I’ve been using for the a while now.
