Naptime = Cleantime

I've been really unmotivated to blog lately as I'm very sure you can tell by my weekly posts. I think it's because I just because I have so much organizing to do here at the house. Elias' first birthday and my return to work are creeping up so quickly and I have so much I want to get done before that happens. So I've decided that for the next month or so I'm going to be starting #speedyclean. Basically I'm making a list of small things that need to get done and each nap time I'm going to do at least one of them. I'm hoping by the end to have a relatively clean house. Below I started my list of things I want to do during nap time. We shall see how it goes! I plan to share before and afters to Instagram so I hold myself accountable with the hashtag #speedyclean. I would love if some other people wanted to join! If you do, just use the hashtag with your pictures so we can cheer each other on!

  1. Yay! I love this post!
    I will do something with this hashtag for sure!
    LOVE organizing!

  2. Hey Melanie, I saw your comments over on another blog during the Pinterest Challenge.. makeup removal isn't really my thing, since I'm a dude, but I'm going to let my wife know about the recipe.

    We have a 2 yo and another baby on the way in April and I can tell you that nap time projects are huge. It only gets harder as they get older. Once they start running around, you end up spending half the nap time just catching some rest. Enjoy it!

  3. I'm lucky enough to still have two nap times and let me tell you that one is usually spent sleeping and I only have one little guy! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your wife likes the recipe!
