Pink explosion!

I have been busy preparing for our little girl to arrive and have neglected my blog… Obviously!
The de-clutter projects have continued in full force and I am happy to report much has left the apartment.
Bedroom closets have been switched and shelves/hooks added. I know that the hooks still look a bit messy, but imagine all that hanging on the top of the door and you will agree it’s SOOOOOO much better.

We bought the hooks/shelves at IKEA and John was able to easily install them in a couple hours. We added three to the bathroom door for guest towels/robes as well.
My favorite project has been transforming the all boy nursery into a boy/girl room… Ah, apartment living in NYC!
I found the idea on Pinterest and went from there. I had a great time picking out the perfect fabric with my momma on our trip out to Oregon in September.

I cut the fabric to fit the embroidery hoops and attached it with “Tacky Glue”. (photo 1)
It was time consuming, but worth it. I also think a glue gun would work well.

We are still anxiously awaiting her arrival. I’ll be 40 weeks tomorrow and SUPER ready to get the show on the road.
Happy Thursday!!!

Hiatus…

Hello there!

I know I’ve been gone for awhile,  but I have an excuse. I would like to report that I have been doing some de-cluttering and not JUST sitting on my butt on the couch (though, I have been doing my fair share of that too). My son will be turning 8 months tomorrow and he is rapidly changing before our eyes. Today, he stood without any help for about 10 seconds before sitting down on his butt. I knew that it was bound to happen, this standing and walking business, but I think it’s going to be sooner than later.

Now for the excuse…I’m pregnant!I just hit 10 weeks yesterday. The little peanut is doing very well and seems to be enjoying his/her space in my belly. I found out the day before I left for California so I spent another Disneyland trip not getting to ride Space Mountain. It’s all worth it for the little pumpkin. It’s still early so we are not telling the world the news, except for family and good friends. I’m excited to announce it and will be using a cute idea that I saw on Pinterest (I’ll post the picture here too). This pregnancy has been far worse than with the first, but each day closer to the 2nd trimester I seem to be getting more energy and feeling less like I want to vomit. My poor husband has got the worse of it…I’m not that pleasant of a pregnant woman during the 1st trimester. He’s counting down the days till the 2nd trimester starts. Hoping Pink, but pretty sure I’ll be a momma of 2 boys (just me and Nadia the cat).

So, that is what has been going on in our world.

The de-cluttering will have to go into high gear in the next few months since our nursery/office/guest room will have to become JUST a nursery/playroom. I’m excited to paint and get ready for the new and last addition. I’ll keep you posted!

Happy Friday!
