If you follow me on Instagram you'll have noticed that, in addition to putting together the baby's room, we're rearranging our house. We've been here six months, it's about time (#lolz). For real though, it's just because we've decided we can make better use of the space we have than what we're currently doing, and we might as well do it now while everything is a mess anyways!
We're moving our "office" from the second spare bedroom and putting it downstairs with our workout space, and the second bedroom will become a guest room (first spare room is going to be the baby room). Some of that stuff will stay in there - such as my knitting and board games and some books - and some of it is being moved around. Obviously the biggest change is that the office stuff - desk, filing cabinet, etc - are now downstairs.
That was part of this weekend. We took down the desk last weekend so we could move everything from the baby room in there while we painted, and then Anthony moved a majority of stuff around during the day while I was at my mom's for the baby shower (aka Baby Shower #2).
Like I said, last weekend we started painting the baby's room. We got through taping everything and putting the base color on the walls before we had to pause for a week because in the lead up to the baby shower I had some cookies to decorate...and they ended up taking me all week. It was the one thing my mom asked me to do, so I did! I'm going to do a longer post about the shower later (and you can check out the progression of decorating these guys on IG), but I'll show you the final product now:
|I'll let you guess what the shower theme was ;)|
What we really need to help get the basement unpacked are 6 ft bookshelves! I have like 4 boxes of books and knick knacks that need to be unpacked, and I'll be so much happier when everything is unpacked. My whole life feels cluttered because of the house right now, and I'd love to get it all under control before the baby comes. It's all comes down to time and money, friends...time and money. I know pretty much everyone goes through this "unpacked" phase of clutter, but it would be really nice to get out of it.
But anyways...this week's plan is to work some more in the baby's room and get the painting done (I'll probably dedicate about an hour to this each night after work) and if anyone's wondering, here's our schedule of events (so far) leading up to our due date - which is December 31st:
- November 17-18th: birth class
- November 23-26: Thanksgiving weekend (including the Schaumburg Turkey Trot again with Katie and Annie! We'll be walking this time lol)
- November 28: Bulls game
- December 2-3: Don't worry, something will come up :P
- December 10: Shower #3
- December 17: Medieval Times with Anthony's family
- The following week: Oh hey, Christmas.
- Oh hey, the baby's due.
- And frequent doctor's appointments allll up until then!
And that's if the baby comes on schedule... whatever that means!
Phew. Just writing it all out has made me tired. I'm gonna go take a nap...all night long. Night guys :P
