We are finally *almost* settled in our new house. The first week was super stressful with only half a day in the house before our giant international shipment with all our things arrived. Unpacking is still a work in progress, though most of the boxes are finally gone. We had some small projects to do around the house, even though it was basically move-in-ready (a necessity since a baby could have arrived right as we were moving in...). But now that most of our projects are done and almost everything has a place (with the exception of the piles of things in our garage... but we'll worry about that later), it's finally starting to feel like home!
The most exciting change we're making to the house is the nursery (which sounds like a silly word, so from now on, "baby's room" will be used...).
What seems like a million years ago, I posted about the artwork I was creating for the baby's room. While I sat around in our temporary housing, I painted, and painted, and painted- a total of 15 jungle animal canvases to hang as a mural on the wall.
We painted the room in orange and pink and green stripes (for grass) and just have the finishing touches of putting up the chair rail and arranging the furniture, which hopefully should be done tomorrow!
SO, until then, no pictures (wouldn't want to ruin the surprise!!)...
And in other exciting news, we finally have reliable, full-time internet (and cable- I love you, HGTV and DIYNetwork) so I will be posting much more frequently. At least for the next 10 days or until the baby decides to arrive... not sure how that's going to go, but there are lots of other blogging moms out there who do it, so hopefully I can step up to the plate and make this blog what I intended when I started it a couple months ago.
