Confessions of a Nightstand

My friend Brooke did this post a while back and just the other day I noticed that my night stand has a bunch of random stuff all over it and I was reminded of her post.
Mine is not nearly as cute as hers and that's why I thought it was so funny.

It was also not staged. If it were, You'd think I'd at least put scriptures somewhere on here...

A: Water. I have always woken up in the middle of the night for water...interestingly enough, I never wake up to use the bathroom.
B: Books. I am currently reading a couple, but oddly not the ones on my nightstand.
C: Carrot Cream from The Body Shop for my hands.
D: An expired can of Coke. I was cleaning out my running bag (that I keep in my closet) and found it, but I guess I couldn't bring myself to throw it away.
E: Headphones. I sometimes watch shows on my laptop in bed...when Luke's sleeping.
F: My cute little jewelry holder.
G: Chap stick. A must.
H: Hair ties. Imagine having hair as long as mine and not braiding it or tying it back while sleeping. I have woken up with my hair wrapped around my neck multiple amounts of times.
I: Rings and necklaces. Can't sleep with them on.
J: Tags from new clothes. These in particular are from Hurley leggings that I bought in stg.
K: A pamphlet on infertility and a referral card. Yep, I am one of those.
L: A reading light. Another stg purchase that was much needed.
M: More books stacked under my ghetto nightstand. All Harry Potters to be exact.
N: A first aid kit we got for Christmas from Holly. I was figuring out everything that came in that nifty little thing.

And there you have it. I think I need a night stand makeover. Desperately.

I love this post idea {I may just "steal" it for myself} it is nice to know I am not the only one with a night stand that is also a collection bin :) except , I would have an extra letter for all the dust mine has. I always take tags off new clothes and toss them on my nightstand, for some reason that is just easier! haha drives AJ nuts :) Also, I was sad to read about your infertility troubles :( we have gone {and will continue go through} our own infertility problems so although, I'm not an expert, if you have any questions or just want to talk or vent, please send me a message, I'm really open to talking about things like that. Hope you guys are doing well!

So sorry about the infertility thing. It is just crappy. If you ever want to chat, we have about 7 years experience dealing with it (before little Jude out of the blue). Love the pic of you cutting Oliver's toenails. So sweet to catch one of those mom moments that you don't normally take pics of.
