Waaaaaiit, what? That is not my usual! I love structure and scheduled and predictability!

However, lately I have been finding myself leaning towards the wild and free. I'd like to blame it on this baby! I think this is going to be the most chill baby! I haven't felt much in the way of stress as far as getting stuff for baby, we are selling our house and I hadn't been stressing about that, none of this is my norm. I don't think I will ever abandon my scheduling tendencies 100% and I don't think I should. I figure if we stick to our structured and scheduled stuff, let's say 20% of the time, it will be a good balance of responsibility and fun! Actually letting us enjoy the spontaneity. I don't think I could enjoy a random beach trip nearly as much, knowing I had a heap of work undone. 
 I want to make sure we lead by example for our kids. All fun and no work is not responsible and surely won't get them far in life. We also want them to learn to enjoy their hard work.

So you might not recognize the crazy lady posting. I just am not feeling all this structure AND
We sold our house! That is great news, we close in a few weeks as long as the inspection and appraisal go well.  The other end of that is WE HAVE NO WHERE TO GO!
As I am sitting here today there are 2 houses for sale in the area we want to be in, 2!!
So we will likely be renting, you would think that would be easier right? Apparently not! It's not as easy as I thought to find a 3 bedroom (minimum) place to move to! Not to mention just 32 days after we close I am all scheduled for a C-section! Don't even get me started on how far behind I am in baby prep!

I have never been the type to rush into anything, or WING IT as they say. We are absolutely winging it and it has me a teeny bit emotional. I am not regretting listing/selling but I still have the occasional though of OHMYGOODNESSWHATHAVEWEDONE!

Our house is beautiful, has no issues, fits us great with room to grow. So WHY are we doing this?!

We just know this is not where we want to be for the rest of our lives, the market is good, we thought we would try and so far it has worked out well! Just trusting that this uncomfortable stage will turn into what we are hoping for.

So that is what is up here! Sorry if Meal Plan Monday was your favorite or you were really looking forward to some back to school posts. I think we will all be lucky if I cook a planned meal again before we move, and I have NO idea where/how/what I will be doing for school. I am sure we will get them there on time and dressed. Right now that is about all I can promise! Come follow me on pinterest and instagram. I am often up with calf cramps from 2-4AM and have plenty of time to pin stuff and I am sure there will be some baby grams!

Once we get settled in a new place (temporarily) and a new baby, I am sure I will have a lot more to share, and probably new obstacles as we downsize (by half!) and make things work.
