It's crazy to me that in less than 8 weeks, he'll be here. Time really has just flown by. According to this handy dandy picture up there, he's quite the little man.
- All of his furniture is now painted and done and in his room (FINALLY!)
- I couldn't decide on anything for the longest time, but I finally found some paper to decoupage his wall letters with. It's black with tiny white polka dots... and I even monogrammed a lamp for his shelves with coordinating acrylic letters. I'll post pics when I am done with the letters (that I haven't started on yet...)
- Finally stumbled across some cute baskets for his changing table today at my favorite store... TJ Maxx. Black baskets are NOT easy to find.
- I was looking for a 3'x5' white shag rug for a while and ended up finding a great deal on one... and by great deal, I mean $6!!! I was pretty excited about it.
Also, in baby news --- I recently gave up my cushy job and became a stay at home Mommy. George and I talked it over and decided that was what would be best. I stayed home with SJ and I wouldn't trade that time with her for anything. SO, we pulled it together, paid off ALL of our bills (except our house) and made it happen. Plus, with what daycare costs and my job expenses we ended up saving alot of money in the end. SO, with the stress of my job gone and all this free time on my hands I have had plenty of time to try to get it together around here.
I recently cleaned out mine and Sarah Jane's closet and eliminated 8 garbage bags of clothes - between the two of us, we gave away 70+ pair of shoes. In doing this, I learned that we have WAY too much stuff. My goal for this new season in our lives is to cut back on things like that. Who knows how much money all that stuff was? It's pathetic, really. We prob. could have gone back to Disney World had we just never spent that money in the first place. ugh.
I guess that about covers our baby news. I am working on recovering a chair, refinishing a quilt rack, decoupaging some letters, finishing up a lampshade and painting a wall sign --- look for pics and another room update soon. We have several friends coming into town in 10 days for the Albany Marathon and my baby shower, so my goal is to be done with as much of it as I can by then. Hopefully not only will I be done with it, but I will get a post up by then too.
