I have a much-overdue post for you! In my last media den update ((months ago!) I mentioned that DH and I were busy clearing out the room to make room for the the newest IKEA member of the family: a … Continue reading
I wanted to share a quick post about a little facelift going on in our master bedroom. We haven’t really touched this room much since last year when the work on the master bathroom finished. We did finally put up … Continue reading
Those of you who have been reading this blog for some time might remember waaaaay back to when I was planning a nursery at our old place for our little girl–who is now almost 3 1/2! I can’t believe how … Continue reading
So as I mentioned in my last post, not much has happened around our house since I was so sick and tired during my first trimester. However, one big thing DID happen, but only because we didn’t do it ourselves: … Continue reading
So by now most readers have probably started wondering where the heck I’d gone since I haven’t posted any new updates to the blog in more than 3 months. Truth be told, I’ve been working on an all-consuming side project: a baby.
Yup, that’s right–our little girl is going to be a big sister! We’re expecting our new bundle of joy in April and are now busily preparing for his or her arrival. I say “now” only because from pretty much the moment I found out I was expecting I was blessed with soul-crushing all-day pregnancy nausea and extreme fatigue. So since the last blog post went up in July, almost nothing has happened at our house–and I don’t just mean new projects. I mean we’ve barely had time to do the minimum around the house to keep things running, keep ourselves fed and clothed, etc. DH has been amazing through this whole time taking on all of the house-related upkeep (which he already did a large share of) in addition to taking care of the kiddo while I did nothing but moan, sleep, and try to keep little bits of food down.
Now that I’m squarely in the second trimester of this pregnancy I’m FINALLY starting to feel a bit more normal. Not 100% yet, but definitely a little better. So DH and I are going to try to pick up where we left off with the house and get some of our projects moving again. In addition to still working on the basement and tweaking some of our other rooms, we have a nursery to do! I’m most excited about the nursery project both because I love to design nursery spaces and because the state of the room currently is just so sad since we haven’t really done anything to it since we moved it. It really is a blank slate!
I might not post quite as frequently as I did pre-pregnancy, but I’ll try to at least keep up with the major projects as we go along. Thanks for your patience as I’ve slogged through these past few months!
Happy weekend! Since weekends often involve doing laundry, I thought I’d invite you to come on down to the laundry room where I’ve made a bit more progress. My last updates involved some paint and art, but the room was definitely … Continue reading
Sometimes a room comes together pretty easily–you plan, execute, and tweak and then sit back and think to yourself: this is exactly what I was picturing! You pour yourself a drink and sit back and enjoy your new space. And … Continue reading
This house has definitely been an opportunity for some creative thinking. Anyone with an old house knows that these guys often have quirks that require creative solutions. Here’s the latest example I had to tackle: Yep, that’s pretty much the … Continue reading
I’m not sure how I totally missed getting this post of up last Saturday, but somehow I did! Anyway, this is a few days late, but it is finally up! After spending a ton of time down in the basement … Continue reading
Phase 1 updates to Sydney’s room are complete! In my last post about this room I shared some of my ideas for turning Sydney’s room into a “big girl” room including this mood board: I’m happy to report that I’ve … Continue reading
