Up and Coming

Adam and I have lots of projects that we're hoping to do before the baby comes. We are planning on redoing the office. And by redoing, I just mean actually doing anything to it. By the time we had painted all the other rooms in the house, we kind of gave up and said the office was "fine for now". But while I was in Miami, every time I would think about the office, it would drive me nuts! It's still painted the weird green color that the whole house (including ceilings) was painted in. And we literally have done nothing to it!

I finally got some ideas together and decided on what we want to do. We're going with fresh white paint, with the colors black, white and a pop of tealy blue. We're going to wallpaper one small wall as an accent. Most likely in this wallpaper.

I'm hoping to add this poster, as the room is an office/craft room.
Remember this? I'm excited to work on my clock. I posted this clock awhile ago, and my awesome mother in law gave it to me as a graduation gift! I love that it is completely customizable, so I can make it fit in with the new look of the office. I have the perfect wall for it!
Once we get the office finished, we'll hopefully be ready to start on the baby room. The baby room doesn't have a closet, so my Dad will be coming to help us build one. We're also hoping to have him help us expand our own closet and hopefully redo our kitchen. I feel very lucky to have such a helpful Dad!

I hope to post Before/Afters when we finally get around to working on it. I'm hoping this post will bring motivation!

P.S. On an unrelated note, I'm dying to grab up this pair of baby boots! However, I'm holding off until our ultrasound next Monday! {found via Your Heart Out }

Not That Coolpix

I almost don't want to post these pictures because they are awful, but I will for my family! My nice camera needs repair and so we're left with our point-and-shoot, which really isn't doing it for me these days. Blech...But hopefully my camera will be back and running ASAP so I can actually have some good pictures of this pregnancy.

I realized that these pictures make it appear as if nothing is there. I'm not sure how that happened because I think it's noticeable now! In other exciting news, I started feeling "her" move and kick around. It makes it much more real!

Here are the first 2 outfits we got when we found out it was a "girl".

Since she's a Valentine's baby and all...

Here "She" Is

Well, Adam and I just couldn't wait. When we came back to Utah (yes we're back and so glad!), my doctor scheduled our next ultrasound at 20 weeks, at the end of this month. Well, in Florida we were on a different schedule and would have gotten our big ultrasound a few weeks sooner. So, we went to an ultrasound place in the mall. Our tech was a man who was a former European OBGYN. He was quite positive we are having a girl. However, I'm a bit skeptical since she was in this lounge position the whole time and wasn't giving us the clear toilet shot. So I guess we'll get another confirmation (or big shock) at the end of the month. But here "she" is...

Not sure what the arrow is supposed to be pointing to...

Here she is propping her feet up!

Either way, we are so excited for this baby! It has been a bit of a journey to get here and we're not taking anything for granted.

I'm hoping to get back to blogging now that I'm home! I'll also post a few belly shots since pretty much all of our family is out of state!
