We moved into our house! It took 1 year and 3 months of remodeling on and off by my dad, hubby, father-in-law, bros-in-law, uncle, dad's friends, and random other friends. We are living surrounded by piles of stuff and I don't know where half of my possessions are, but we are IN. We have no internet and no windowshades, but we are IN. Our stove isn't quite hooked up and we are living by microwaveable meals, but we are IN! I know you thought I was teasing you all these months. I know you thought, "Suuuuure she has a crooked little house that is being worked on. Living with the parents for over a year and saying she's moving in soon about once a month? Sounds like crazy talk to me." Well, I'm not crazy! (Okay I'm a little crazy...) I tell the truth! And the truth is- we are in our little crooked house and we couldn't be happier! Well, we might be a little happier if we had some awesome organizing superpower where we could snap our fingers and everything jumped into place, but that's probably the only way. So excuse me while I purge and organize and decorate (and take frequent breaks to rest and eat- after all, I am almost 32 weeks pregnant). I'll post pics when I am able and can't wait to share actual decorating projects with you rather than random wishes and inspirations. It is a good day, friends! Hugs to you all!
Hubs and I bought ourselves a flatscreen for Christmas. From us to us. Since we spend many a date night watching movies in rather than out at the theater, it seemed like a nice date enhancer. But once you buy a big 'ol flatscreen, you need a big 'ol entertainment center that it can go on top of. Today we found just the one we never knew we always wanted.
Unfortunately it is out of our price range of $0 - $0. What do you think: diapers for the little stinker growing in my belly oooor this shiny, pretty cabinet? Okay.... diapers it is. Gosh. Poop sure costs a lot.
Well, I definitely have baby on the brain these days. With nearly 10 weeks left until my due date and 2 baby showers coming up, I've been reading, researching, and registering all things baby. In my baby travels, I have found a German toy designer I love. I am anti-plastic and anti-overly complicated, annoying toys, so Haba is right up my alley. Haba makes adorable wooden and fabric toys in bright basic colors. I am having to refrain myself from registering for 20 or so of their toys... and I might have to learn to share with my daughter too.
