Reclaiming the Garage + Early Christmas Prep {November Goals + October Goals Recap}

I just hit my 30-week mark in the pregnancy today, and lemme tell you—I am FEELING it. That being said, I’m also feeling a strong nesting urge to attend to All the Things, just because I still have a hunch this baby might come on the earlier side (like Mathias did, who came at 37 …
