Progress-Craft Room/Office Makeover

We are slowly making a little headway on MY craft room/office. This space used to be our old kitchen, so it is full of cabinets (storage!), but it needed some work.

The computer has been located on the bar, which worked out fine.

But…we had this gapping hole where the stove used to be located. So, we figured it would be a great place for computer shelf.

Nick is going to finish the counter top (needs to be cut off) next weekend. I plan on spray painting and getting new prints for the frames. Organization is then high on the list!

Here is some inspiration!

I love the blue with the white.


Everything has a place!


LOVE the green!


Love glass storage!


Plan on painting the chair white!


So what do you think?

Work starts back tomorrow! I am not looking forward to running around like crazy and missing my baby!

Thanksgiving and Black Friday

We had a great Thanksgiving filled with family and food. It doesn’t get much better than that! We went to my parents and celebrated with my side of the family. We had a ton of great food!

Andrew had such a great time playing with his cousins!

I failed to take many pictures. I guess the food kept me occupied. Smile


My mom, sister, and I headed out at 7 am on Friday to find some deals. We really found everything we were looking for and I am so glad we went when we did. I do not want to fight anyone over ANYTHING! The stores were not crowded at all. Look at the truck!

I hope everyone has a peaceful and relaxing weekend. It will be back to work before we know it!

I hope everyone is have a thankful Thanksgiving! I have so many things to be thankful for this year.

For starters, I am very thankful for a wonderful husband. He is always there for me and is the best father!

I am thankful for my sweet Andrew. I could not have dreamed of a better child. He is polite, funny, smart, and so loving! He has started giving me nose kisses (he rubs our noses together and then wants me to kiss  his nose). Can this age last FOREVER!

I am very thankful for my family. My side, Nick’s side, and friends that feel like family. They make my days happy and they are always there for my little family.

Last, but not least, I am thankful for my faith in God. He has never steered me wrong and is such an important part of my life.

I hope everyone is thankful today and everyday!

Psalm 107:1

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Church Photo Session

I decided to do a little mini photo shoot before church Sunday. Andrew was just so handsome and of course Nick was too!

DSC06171(rev 1)DSC06180(rev 1)DSC06173(rev 1)DSC06175(rev 1)

See that grin in the last picture? This is Andrew's new idea of smiling for photos!

11, 12, and 13 Weeks

13 weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 11, 12, and, 13 weeks

Size of baby: 11 (fig), 12 (lime), and 13 (medium shrimp) weeks

Gender: ??? I will not find out till 20!

Maternity Clothes: Maternity pants and some shirts.

Weight gain: 5 lbs

Movement: I SWEAR I feel something, but I logically know it is too early. However, I know what the early feelings are and I am pretty I have experienced it a few times. Just saying…

Sleep: I am still going to sleep early and have started waking up and having to walk around. It is almost like restless leg syndrome. I literally feel like I have to get up and move. I had this with Andrew also. I also had 2 panic attacks during the night when I was pregnant before and I pray that does not happen again!

Symptoms: My energy during the day is back to normal. I do have back and hip pain on days were I physically have to do a lot. I did not have this with Andrew till much later. I frequently visit the restroom, which is very normal.

Cravings: Anything cold! I could drink milk and orange juice all day nonstop! I have very little appetite around dinner. Lunch is my big meal for sure! With Andrew I could eat nonstop and anything (especially red meat). I have way more food aversions this time around. I am not a big fan of red meat or pork. Some things make me sick to even think about.

Best moment this week: Having more energy during the day is a huge plus!

What we have been up to and Andrew’s Christmas Tree

Wow, it has been awhile. I guess life can do that sometimes. I am enjoying my week off and loving all the time I get to spend with Andrew. He is changing so much and I hate that I don’t spend this much time with him everyday.

Nick and I managed to buy all of Andrew Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers last weekend. We also purchased a few things online for others and are well on our way to being finished! We tend to be last minute shoppers, so we are doing great! My mom and I are going out on Black Friday, so maybe I can finish the rest then. Either that or we will be trampled!

Yesterday I managed to put up all 3 of our Christmas trees! Yes 3! I have always dreamed of going all out for Christmas, but we never had the space. With our addition, I now able to decorate the way I have always wanted to. Andrew is very much into Christmas! I have already read A Night Before Christmas 20 times. Christmas is my favorite holiday, so I am glad he shares this with me!

I put Andrew’s tree up with his assistance of course! I found this tree after Christmas last year for $5! It is very thin and scraggly, but Andrew could care less! In the past, he had a small tabletop tree, but his ornament collection keeps growing. Here is the new one!

The tree is upstairs in his playroom. I used a blue theme and it turned out so cute!
