Earring organizing

I have heard of this idea before and so I thought I would put it to the test. I found a extra ice cube tray at Goodwill and organized my earrings. I tried to put hoops with hoops and studs with studs. It worked great! I can find my earrings a lot easier than before where they were all thrown into a drawer.

I can't believe I made it to 40 Weeks!



I can't believe I made it to 40 weeks! Today is my due date (May 9th). My birthday is on Sunday (yes it is on mother's day this year) Maybe baby boy will make his appearance. I am having contractions come and go and feel pressure. I am visiting the bathroom quite often and did lose my plug yesterday. It feels like he will be here before I know it. I am trying to enjoy these last moments, but to be honest I am a bit uncomfortable. I have put on merely comfortable clothes rather than trying to look put together. I didn't think I would have to use my maternity shorts but lately I have been. Baby boy is moving has slowed down but he is still fairly active. I look forward to meeting him really soon and am excited to be so close.
