I've been on a cleaning spree...has nothing to do with the pending arrival of the little guy, just some belated spring cleaning I keep telling myself...yeah, right! Truth is making room for Hudson has me rethinking every nook and crany of our home and really trying to simplify.
Part I was the massive garage sale we had memorial day weekend. It was a huge success, but man oh man, what was I thinking doing that at 35 wks. I had forgotten how much work garage sales really are. Definitely glad that's over!
Since then, I've been working on Part II - moving things around and repurposing things we already have at home (fastest, cheapest decorating for sure!). I changed out the photos and frames on this side table and now I really like the warm, eclectic vibe of this little spot. And I cheated a little bit 'cause I bought this new rug for the living room, but I LOVE how it looks with our sofas and decor. I then moved on to our bedroom. After taking down this display from Grace's old nursery *sniff*sniff* I used some of the decorations along with her old nursery shelves to create this little photo wall in our bedroom. Isn't it sweet? Prior to the change, I had just the two weathered frames one above the other, but I really like how it all looks anchored now, thanks to the shelves. And I'm sure I'll tweak it even further after we have photos of Hudson :)
Speaking of...yes, it's the wee hours and I'm up rather than snoozing. I've been having contractions all day, painful ones. And now leg cramps too, and I can't seem to get comfortable lying down. Instead of tossing and turning I decided to do more constructive thngs...like blog (ha, ha). That is, after I washed all of his 0-3 mo. clothes, packed the hospital bags, and laid out Grace's clothes for when we go to the hospital. May not be too long now. At my doc's appt. this morning - I'll spare you the details - let's just say she said things were moving right along :) so it looks like the little guy may be making his debut sooner rather than later.
