wedding photos

Yes, we've been married for over 2.5 years, but I've just now gotten around to making a few prints and hanging them on the wall.

the bump - week 40

There better not be a need for a post titled "the bump - week 41". That's all I have to say.

deck the halls

Now we're ready for Turkey AND Santa.

mirror, mirror, on the wall

Ikea had a nice simple mirror, but it was painted gold, and everything else in the house is brushed nickel. Nothing a little metallic spray paint can't fix!

turkey's room

And speaking of the old guestroom, it's still coming together as Turkey's room, but we're getting there. The rug we ordered was too small, so back to square one there.

The crib we're going to borrow is still in use, and we'll be using the bassinet for a while anyway. We bought curtains, but need to launder them before they go up. I'm not sure if my little desk will work as a table, but we'll try it for now.

But, unlike in other rooms, we do have art!

the new guestroom

Since Turkey will be occupying what used to be the guestroom upstairs, the downstairs has become the new guestroom. Still needs a bit of work, but we've made tremendous progress since last weekend.

Thanks again to Chachi and Jon's big guns for wrestling the sofa bed down here last night!


Well, almost.

The machines were delivered today, but we still need a few parts to connect them to the old kitchenette gas and water lines. To be continued...

ready and waiting

The birth tub is set up and waiting to be filled.

more curtains, again

New windows + new trim = old blinds no longer fit
