If it were more green/springlike outside, I'd put some pictures up. But everything in our neighborhood is still brown and icky, so I won't bore you with blah photos.
Instead I'll update you on the nursery's progress! It's been awhile since I posted about it, so here's what we've done (in total):
1. Tore down plaster/lathe wallsLeft to do:
2. Installed insulation (there was NONE before)
3. Installed drywall
4. Wired and put in ceiling fan and light in closet
5. Primed & painted
6. Bought, cut, & painted trim
7. Installed trim (including old baseboard)
1. Install new windows when they come inHere's some pictures to prove what we've done:
2. Sew & install curtains
3. Finish furnishing

We've also been updating the bathroom, because our house didn't have an exhaust fan in the only bathroom in the whole house. (who in the heck knows why). That meant we (cough David cough) had to re-drywall the ceiling after installing a new light fixture/fan combo, so we had to paint the walls as well. I decided to go crazy and paint the ceiling + a couple inches down the walls a blue as well, to match the tile in the tub and because I like blue.
Just last night, David installed the trim separating the two, and I LOVE it. It turned out much better than I even imagined...and I had pretty high hopes.
We're hoping the windows get here in the next few days, so we can finish the nursery and breathe a sigh of relief, since the baby's due date is approaching quickly!!
For funzies here's a bump shot:
|excuse the water marks on the mirror. gross.|
also I'm wearing shorts already, don't judge me.
How was your weekend? I'm already looking forward to the next one, which for us is gonna include some high school basketball games, my dad's birthday party, and more nice weather. Yay!
