Where I've been

I have what I hope you will find to be a very good excuse for being blog absent for over two months,


I'll be 17 weeks tomorrow, and just starting to regain some energy. I've had pretty rough morning sickness that still hasn't left me yet. I tried to go without any nausea medicine this past weekend, and ended up sprinting from the car to the church bathroom on Sunday morning. Our little baby will be worth it though!

In other news, we've been in the dream house for a little less than a month. We still have a lot of settling in left to do, but I do have some pictures from move in day so you can at least get an idea of the house. Warning: they are not the best photos in the world. I need to take some better ones pronto - or at least as soon as I can count on not falling asleep immediately after getting home from work :-)


The front - we still need a sidewalk of some sort. We are over budget, so pavers are not something we can swing at the moment. I'd like to plant some limelight hydrangeas out front as well - we'll see how that goes with my black thumb!



Living room

Library - my dad built the beautiful shelves


dining room



kitchen


craft room




Master - the tub is one of my favorite things!


Upstairs hall



kid bathroom



guest room - super dark, but you get the idea at least.


nursery - we're planning to do a vintage circus theme. When we know the gender in a few weeks we'll know whether it will be lion tamers and monkeys or trapeze girls and Ferris wheels.

That's what I've been up to all this time!

Hattie, I am so excited for you both. Congratulations on the baby and your move into your dream home. It is beautiful - I pray that you are over your morning sickness quickly and can enjoy preparing the nursery.
Oh, and I love your kitchen!

Oh my goodness, Hattie!!!

I'm so excited for you guys! A baby and an absolutely gorgeous new place!! More baby details, please! Did you tell your hubby in a fun way? Are you finding out the gender?

Also, your house is incredible. My favorite part is that kitchen- holy wow!

Congrats, Hattie! Can't wait to hear all about everything!

Congrats! What a fun year for you guys! Looove the kitchen. Looking forward to new posts!

Okay, I just went back on here to check out that kitchen again (LOVE the farmhouse sink and those stools!! Those are the same ones that YHL has, right?) and realized you already answered the question about finding out the gender, so you can ignore that one. Hope your week is going well!

Congratulations! Both of those tidbits are perfect reasons to be gone from the blogging world. Must be great to have a place to nest once you get ready to!
