Getting Excited


I know I have not had a post in a long time and I’m sorry.  I have been busy scouring Blogs, Pinterest, Etsy, and anything else I can think of to get ideas for the Nursery.  It has been so much fun.  I have several DIY Projects in mind and almost ready to start.  I few things that we have to do to the actual room before we can start putting the room together.  When I say we, I really mean the Big Man.  He is such a sweet man and is humoring me with my decision to put up beadboard/wainscoting in the room.  Will post some before and after pictures when that’s done.

PROJECT #1 – Baby Mobile using the pattern below!

Okay, that’s it for now!  I will hopefully have some “look what I did” pics soon!

Makes me SMILE week 18


Little’s game.

My finds at garage sales and thrift stores for some DIY projects. (Wish I had more time and money for this type of stuff)

An afternoon with the Besties.

A lazy day at the house with Big and Little watching the rain.

Spending time with Little at the park on sun-shining days.

Putting Little to sleep and the dark quiet moments when he is laying in bed and I am bent over the side with my head next to his “laying in bed” with him and we cuddle and talk and he asks for another hug and kiss or a couple.

Two days off from running.  Actually it went more like this, when I was done this morning with what seemed like a tougher run then normal, I was stretching and I literally said to myself, “Ah, two days off from running!”
