Guest bedroom... finished. since maebri was born we will be having a lot of out of town visitors so wanted to have a place for them to stay. got the walls painted & the room decorated, it looks so much better. now we just need a new queen size mattress for the bed & it will be complete. the quilt is from an antique store in missouri, dresser was jeff's from salvation army, artwork from ikea & mirror/lamp from sample sale. love the color combo, nice & cozy :)

A few things...

we did this weekend. I added the handmade 'm' to maebri's door with a velcro backing so it could be removed easily. my mom made it for the shower out of the fabric she used for the crib skirt, adds a nice final touch to her special space. the boys & i went to mom's to go swimming, they love it so much. my 38 week pic which makes it very evident maebri needs to make her arrival soon, she's running out of room lol. sunday we moved boats down to the trade center for jeff's boat show this weekend, we are hoping ms. m doesn't show up this weekend while he is there, but i guess it will happen when it happens. we made a nice little bed for the boys in the backseat of the truck, they love being with us, are so well behaved & ride well in the car. i know maebri will be a good little girl just like her brothers, who has a go with the flow personality like jeff & i. finally, spotted this cute little bench, would love to make something like this eventually for the living room. i know it might not happen for awhile, but colorful inspiration for the future. it was a nice weekend & it's going to get even better very soon :)

37 weeks...

...and counting. i'm not a summer person to begin with, so being pregnant in this weather is making the heat more unbearable. what i do have to look forward to is the fact that our little maebri will be here soon. so it's all worth it. she's healthy & very active so now it's basically just a waiting game. she's measuring at 38 weeks, so maybe she'll come a little earlier than planned. either way everything is ready for her, bags are packed, carseats installed, jeff & i are so excited. received one last outfit from the amazing zulily & rescued mr. rowdy from the sherman shelter this weekend, thank goodness because they gas them there :( sadly, due to irresponsible pet ownership, he is one of three of ours that is hw positive, so i have to work on fundraising for his treatment. at least he is comfortable in a nice foster home, makes it all worth it. so cheers to saving adorable heeler lives, enjoying the quiet & air conditioning for another few weeks & looking forward to the future.
