30 in 30

So we have approximately 30 weeks before due date...which is really a LONG time. But when I think about our "to-do" list and try to get realistic about how much we will get done in the first couple of years after baby, suddenly we don't have much time! most of the things we would like to do involve our house, but not all of them; there are a few items that are easy to check off we just need a little reminder to complete them. 

With this said, I decided to put together our own little version of ESPN's 30 for 30.  For ESPN's 30th anniversary, they developed a series of 30 different sports documentaries, directed by 30 different directors.  Well, the Spearman version is just a bit different...our 30 in 30 will be a list of 30 "to-dos" in the next 30 weeks.

I have added a tab at the top of the blog labeled "30 in 30", and that is where the list will live.  Once we mark something off, I will update the list on this tab...hopefully we can complete most, if not all of these things before we lose all motivation.   And here is the list...

1. decorate the nursery
2. buy office furniture and finish the office
3. unpack/furnish the bonus room / "in law" suite
4. improve my "green thumb" and lay a border around our flowerbed
