Now I have time for all those projects I've had on my list for the last few months but have shamefully neglected! **cough**blogging**cough**
In fact, in the last 1.5 days, I have already steam cleaned my carpets, deep cleaned my kitchen, reorganized my craft drawers, washed/prepped/inventoried my cloth diapers, went to yoga, knitted half a scarf, and watched a fair amount of Netflix. I'm aware these might not sound like relaxing, about-to-have-a-baby activities, but I can't help myself.... I'm incapable of relaxation unless it's a) scheduled, and b) simultaneously productive.
I'm due on Friday! Time has really flown, and though I'm anxious to meet my daughter, I'm also enjoying these last few days of sleeping through the night (bathroom trips don't count) and being able to wander around town by myself on a whim. Since I realize I posted a little while ago about my inspiration for the nursery and then never followed up, I suppose it's about time I document what's been going on in our spare bedroom lately!
First, a look at the hot mess I started with:
|Blank walls, lots o'junk|
|A crib full of random stuff.|
|For a while the bed was doubling as my study space and my husband's ironing station.|
|You can never have too many pom poms! And no, that map is not upside down - it's meant to be that way. A perk of working for a company that makes mapping software is that you can occasionally obtain unique swag.|
|I'm also in love with this crib! It was a hand-me-down from Charlotte, bless her, and has drawers underneath that I use to store diapers. The Boppy pillow in the crib is on loan, the car seat chilling off to the left was a gift, the play mat and bouncy seat peaking out on the right were bought at a consignment sale for a total of $25, and the blankets draped over the sides were each handmade by dear friends and coworkers. This picture just reminds me how much I have to be grateful for. :)|
