Dylan's room is coming right along. We still need some artwork, who knew how hard that would be, window treatments, and well baby things!! Like a changing pad, and cover and some diapers and wipes! So here is it... Enjoy! View from the bathroom! Close up of the bedding, that I waited so long for!
So I am 30 weeks this week, time sure is flying by!
We've been busy parents to be. Getting a nursery ready is probably the hardest part of being pregnant. We pregnant people have GRAND ideas of what we want it to be, I know I do!!! After I found out we were having a boy, I KNEW I didn't want to do sports, boats, woodland creatures, or anything else that is generally assiciated with " Boys" I wanted something bright, and fun, and pretty gender nuetral... then the hunt for bedding commenced, I finally found it, ordered it, only to find out that it had been discontinued! Sad day, but then I ordered something very similar, same colors and everything. I finally got the bedding last Monday, after probably about 6 weeks!
Well then I thought about paint. I knew I wanted to stripe a wall( based on the bedding), and then paint the other three a solid color. Man, let me tell you, painting stripes is a pain! Here is a sneak peak at the stripes!
(You can see some of our sample swatches there!)
But honestly, I'm not sure which Adam and I disliked more, painting three walls a solid blue, or the stripes!
This is the baby blue that is on the other three walls!
So now we wait for the furniture. Which is being delivered on THURSDAY!!!! YEY!!! Adam and I went to order our crib, dresser, and glider back at the beginning of July, so it's been a long time coming now! We're soo excited!!! I'll post some pictures, once it all comes together on Friday!
This past Friday night we got hit HARD with storms here in Murphy TX. You forget about how bad TX storms are when you live in PA for two years. Yes, it storms there, but, the lightning and thunder, they just don't compare. So as this storm was rolling through, Adam and I,well, we watched the lightening through the windows. We were upstairs in the game room, when this crack of thunder and lightning hit about the same time. You know what they always told you, you can judge how close lightening is by how soon you hear the thunder. Well what about when it's at the same time? Is it in your backyard? Anywho, Adam was like " Holy Crap, that looked like it hit the pool, which is like half a block from our front door, I'll have you know.
So of course on this night of all nights, we had dinner plans, so as we were leaving, sure enough, fire trucks, ambulances, and police were swarming the pool area, but we saw nothing. So we proceeded to float/ drive to the OTHER side of Plano for dinner. Upon our return, a mere 3 hours later, the rain had stopped, but the damage had already been done.
You see, as we pull up to our street, we see that the other side has been shut down by fire trucks, so being the rubbernecker that I am, ( Don't tell me you don't do it too, everyone does) I make Adam make the block so we can see what has happened. Remember that lightening that " Hit the pool"? Well it actually hit a house. A house on OUR STREET. Yes it was on the other side of the neighborhood, but probably only 20 houses down from us. And it was gone. The roof, all the windows, and it had taken a LONG time to put out that fire, and many of Murphy, and Wylies, fire fighters. I truly felt so sad for the family that had just lost everything, even though I have no idea who they are. But who would have though something like that would hit so close to home?
On a funny note, Adam and I immediately came home and checked our homeowners policy, to make sure that if anything were to happy to our house, it would be alright. I have also been on the hunt for one of those stickers to say that there are animals in the house, and how many of what kind. Because, firefighters would NEVER be able to find Bailey. She is in our closet ( Huge walkin don't worry) in her crate, that is covered in a blanket.
I can't believe it. I've entered the third and LAST trimester of this pregnancy. That means in a THREE months, we'll have us a brand new baby boy, how exciting:) Man, there is so much that we still need to do, like, ANYTHING in his nursery. I'm, sadly, still waiting on his bedding so we can go and get paint colors picked out. At this rate, we're going to have his furniture before his bedding, which is fine, but I wanted to paint before we got that!!! oh well! I have actually checked off one thing on our list, which is to sign up for classes at the hospital. We are signed up for 3, a Baby care class, which is basically a new parent class, a Infant Safety and CPR class, and a breastfeeding class. I don't know if every hospital is like this, but all of the classes are free of charge which is nice, because there are so many good ones!!! So now all we have to do is go on our tour, which they hold on Mondays with drinks and appetizers... Isn't that cool? Again, maybe every hospital does this but not that I know of! I will leave the baby section with a picture of me from this weekend. Adam was sitting on the couch, that's why I look like I'm looking down!
In other non baby news, WE HAVE A COFFEE TABLE AND END TABLES!!! We picked them up this afternoon, and they look great! Also, I took a hint fromLauren's blog and picked myself up some fall candles. She had made a post about the Leaves Candle, and Adam and I were at the mall and I walked past Bath and Body works, and there it was! Calling my name. EVEN better was that they were on sale. Buy on get one FREE!!! So I got Leaves and Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin. THEY ARE AMAZING!!! All this talk of fall got me thinking about Christmas, and how I should start thinking about how I'm going to decorate. Since I know Christmas will be at our house this year, because of Dylan, can't have company without Christmas Decorations!!!
Well I was looking through some of the latest posts, and realized that I hadn't had any pictures in there in a while! So this is going to be a random picture post. Starting off with something probably everyone forgot about... my craft project! I finally finished it today, it got taken upstairs and kinda forgotten about... so here it is. I made closet dividers for Dylan's nursery. You can buy them, yes, but I thought these were much cuter, and cost about $1 a piece!!
These are for keeping all those cute little tiny clothes organized, so you know what you have in what size. I made a newborn one, 0-3 months ( yes this is different from newborn) 3-6,6-9,9-12,12-18... So I have a long time until I will need to change them! They look really cute in the closet too!
So there you have it folks... my craft project!!!
My next set is pictures of the house... We finally bought a dining room table a few weeks ago, and almost as soon as it was set up the cat was on it. They think everything new we by we bought for them. Luckily, since we have put a runner and place mats on it, so hasn't been up there. She prefers the chairs!!
This is probably one of the best pictures I've ever gotten of her...no devil eyes! So here is a picture of the table and the formal living room, we think they look pretty good together! Just need some curtains!
Last pictures for today are just some random ones that I have taken over the last few weeks!!!
Louie likes to play " Where's Louie" he'll lay down on the brown sofas, or the brown sheets on the bed, and sometimes it's really hard to find him. Here he is on the couch, and HE managed to put the pillow on top of him, we didn't do it, I promise!
This is a sunset picture the other night, I thought that it was pretty. It was like a fire color... no color correcting here!
So there you have it... some pictures. It looks like we are going to have a pretty good turn out for our BBQ this weekend, so hopefully, I'll remember to use the camera!!!
