New Year + Nesting

New Year + Nesting

If only every day could be as peaceful & relaxing as today.

Unfortunately, this week was one of those crazy cleaning weeks. We did have 3 great beach days, but let's be real--in-between all that, it was quite stressful. Our week mostly consisted of un-packing, getting caught up with laundry, de-junking, organizing everything, moving (we switched the kids room), shopping for & setting up a new bunk bed & dressers for the kids ALL WHILE getting on each other's nerves & fighting over dumb little things that don't even matter. Haha! (Let's just say, we're not used to being around each other this much & we both hate cleaning.) But aaahhh today's reward was sooo nice & made all that work worth it. Being able to relax on the beach & read (as I'm doing here), while my hubby and kids swam and played, KNOWING how clean and organized things were back at home felt SO good. It made our beach time today feel that much better and truly enjoyable. {Clutter & mess = stress to me.} So even though this week inside the house sucked (minus our beach time, of course), I feel so good now & am ready to finally start our "new year." Well, officially on Monday, of course. (Yes, I'm one of those.) Aaaanyways, Happy Aloha Friday, everyone!

So is anyone else as crazy as me when a new year starts? For some reason I just can't "start" until everything is in order first. (The fact that I'm pregnant and in nesting phase just makes it that much worse. Haha! ;) But hey, my home is winning for happy place right now. You just can't beat this clean feeling. Ahhhh.....

Hope you all have a happy weekend!

Much Aloha,
