Feeling Good

Bear with me while I brag on myself for a moment.

Today I went to the grocery store. No biggie, in and of itself. I go to the grocery store all the time. I would say that in the past six months, I go to the grocery store on average 3-4 times a week. That’s because I just buy stuff as we need it. We’re out of milk…head to the store. No bagels? I’ll run to Randall’s. Major craving for strawberries and ice cream? Be right back!

But today, I did big grocery shopping for the first time what feels like forever! I even planned a few meals for the week. This is big time! (Just ask my husband…being pregnant has not been good for Meg the Chef.)

Not only did I stock our fridge and pantry with good food, I even cooked dinner tonight! We had cheese tortellini, meatballs, salad, and bread. It was a winner in everyone’s book. Even my biggest critic (Logan) ate it all up.

Besides making a good dinner and going to the store, I ran a bunch of errands, kept the house picked up, and did the budget. It feels good to make a big list of stuff to do and actually get it done.

I know this is just every stuff, but it feels good to look back on the day and feel like I accomplished something. Do any other moms out there ever feel like they never accomplish anything, no matter how busy the day feels?

Since I kept things pretty clean today, I took the official after pictures of the kitchen. I am so happy with it! Like all house projects, I think it looks better in person. And, like all of my house projects, there are always things to add. Like now I want to paint, and I still have my eye on a stainless steel fridge if old faithful ever stops working. But the next house project is for sure the nameless baby girl’s room. Suzy Q is coming to visit in less than 2 weeks, and she is going to help me paint. It’s so cute in my head, and hopefully it will turn out in real life, too.

Anyway, here’s the kitchen:


And some side by side comparisons of the before and after:
