The Lil House That Could
We Did It

On Tuesday morning, Rebecca made about 8 million phone calls to various Babies R Us stores. She started out calling New Jersey stores and working outwards. In between calls, she’d vent to me about no one having it. And I certainly didn’t help when I kept recommending different places to call — “call Ma...
A Nursery Setback
- Published on Monday, 16 April 2012
Tonight Mike and I decided to go to Babies R Us to FINALLY order the glider we’ve been putting off buying for months. Not putting off because we were lazy, but putting off because we were waiting for it to go on sale like it was when we first spotted it.
I received my registry completion coupon on Saturday and decided that I...
Can You Imagine

Rebecca has been asking me all week what should we do above the baby’s dresser. We know we want to rock the giraffe sconces, but we’re not so sure what to do exactly in between them.
Do we go with the classic three frame horizontal look? Maybe one large frame? We’ve bounced ideas back and forth to one another r...

Since we started planning a nursery, the Hemnes 8-drawer dresser from Ikea has been in my plans.
The question was the color. Ikea has a few options that would work– the black brown, the gray brown (pictured above), the white or we could paint it a bold color. The bold color was my choice up until we actually painted...

So I’ve reached the 35 week mark.
It’s weird, I didn’t really feel like I grew that much these past 5 weeks, but when I saw this picture I had a holy s#@* moment. I had no clue my stomach was protruding that far.
I decided not to put my hand over the center of my belly like I usually do so that my hand didn’t...

My brain hurts today and my to-do list is massive. We have loads of things in the works for the nursery, but nothing is completed for after pictures and stories. So! A random post of what’s going on it is!
First there are the things we’ve sort of done, or rather, started…
1. Buy dresser
Two weekends ago we...
All In A Day’s Work

I mentioned last week that we desperately needed some mulch. Okay, I’ve been mentioning for the past year that we desperately needed some mulch. After all, our front yard was looking like this…
So last week, Mike drove around looking for mulch places. We actually did this last year, since the first year...

Usually the only deer I post about are those that live in our backyard (who seem to have returned in the past few weeks). Mike and I spent a good 20 minutes yesterday sitting together in front of our sliding glass door watching the deer. We’re like old people… but now we’re old people with a ride on lawn mower
Au Revoir Carpet
- Published on Thursday, 29 March 2012
This weekend Mike and I came to a sad realization– our family room carpet has to go.
This was not a happy decision because a) I’ve always wanted to keep our sunken family room carpeted and b) the timing is god awful.
It’s no secret that one of our cats, Darwin, has been battling renal lymphoma. In January, he...

We had a problem when we installed our diffuser-less light fixture the other day, just after we finished painting the nursery. The bulb was insanely bright, like sun-spots bright. I think R...
