A wee update

We rejigged things a little in here to make the room more workable and added a cute little rocking chair - lucky baby - our bedroom is not nearly as fancy!

Getting Ready for Baby

Well we may be a tad early - still 108 days to go, but we are anticipating that the next few months are going to fly by so we got an early start on the nursery.  My mom and dad were here just after Thanksgiving and were eager to help out - mom could hardly wait to get a paint brush in her hand!  We have a teeny little bedroom that is perfect for a nursery - but it was an uninspiring room with cracked walls, no baseboards and no color...

Now...we LOVE this little room!

...still some finishing touches to go but we are really happy with the way it's shaping up - we were wanting to get a little rocking chair in here but it may be too tight.  Lot's of ideas for art and accessories...more to come!

Catching up

Back from my last big trip last night - 2 weeks in Asia, and I was so happy to get home.  Traveling is great but I really am a home body.  As I am not inspired to do a whole heck of a lot else today - thought I would update with a few pics of our continued progress on the house.  The exterior of our house was one of our biggest projects this summer and we had Eric come to visit in the spring and put him to work for 3 solid weeks...what a treat to have a Carpenter brother and a very handy hubby!  
Before...a blank canvas, not a lot of privacy and a view of a really ugly rusted shed!

 Progress!  The boys taking a beer break.

Finished product - so pleased with our new yard!  This is furniture that I purchased for Home Outfitters for our spring summer season - it was one of my best sellers.  Fortunately we were able to score a set before they all sold out.
