10 weeks to go

I hit the 30 week mark on Saturday (coincidentally the day of my first baby shower) and I can't believe we're getting so close! This shower was with C's family and a few friends and went well for the most part, minus some family drama from his aunt at the end. We've gotten a lot off our registry, though there will still be some big ticket items to buy when all is said and done. My best friend who lives three hours away was able to come down and stayed the night - she is due three weeks after me (first mentioned here) and it was great to spend time with her. Here's a pic of us at the shower with our girls :o)

Customary 30 week bump shot before the shower

In nursery progress news, I got down to some serious nesting on Sunday while C went golfing with his stepdad for Father's Day. I spent forever rearranging the furniture and am still not 100% sure it is all where it will end up but it will do for now.

Bookshelf from a flea market that C refinished plus the framed embroidery I previously mentioned.
I'm going to repaint the frames and they'll be hung on the wall.

Trying to decide what to do on the flat area of the sloped wall near the ceiling.
I love these alphabet and number cards from etsy, but I'm not sold yet. The bedding is buried somewhere in the crib since we don't have our mattress yet.

Garage sale dresser that my dad refinished - I'll be getting new knobs for it. I'm hoping to squeeze a glider in between the crib and dresser (you see why I have a furniture placement problem?).

Other items to do include still getting the heating/air conditioning situation worked out upstairs and C needs to fix the ceiling where some of the drop tiles are coming loose. I need to decide on some sort of valance for the window too and find some little things like a lamp and a letter "A" that I plan to decoupage with tissue paper. I'm also working on a bird mobile, not that I even know where it's going at this point! After my next shower in two weeks I hope to start washing and organizing clothes. Where in the world has the time gone?!


  1. Looks good so AND the nursery! I had some major nesting kick in over the last week too and I ALSO made a bird mobile over the weekend. Again...everytime I read your blog it's like reading about myself haha.

    Yay for 10 weeks to go! It went so fast!

    P.S. This is Lacey from Life of Lacey...blogger is having major issues with it's comments lately!

  2. Nevermind that looked like it was going to make me post anonymously! :)

  3. I love the wall color and all the garage sale and flea market finds! Can't wait to see the bedding up. You look adorable, as always!

  4. Omgoodness! 10 weeks! That is exciting. You look amazing.

    I was just planning furniture placement on this website:
    It might help you.

    I can't wait to see the final pics!
