So, I’ve been thinking about the blog a lot lately. I didn’t post through my pregnancy, mainly cause I felt like I had nothing to blog about, since I wasn’t doing projects. I kind of regret that now, blogging doesn’t have to be formal, actually I find that I like blogs more when they are more personal. So why did I stop?! I dunno, silly me I guess.
I don’t have a project for you today, and I’m beginning to be okay with that. This is for fun and its not suppose to be a lot of work. So I’m just gonna start blogging about life and what I’m making, thinking, and doing. Sometimes that will include a recipe, project, pictures, inspiration, or just ramblings(or maybe a combination of all of thee above…).
So here we go:
We are currently working on the basement, and have made awesome progress but slowed down a bit, due to Mr being super busy at work right now. Just to remind you what we started with…(minus the furniture and pictures, the previous owners took that…oh and don’t forget about the hanging christmas lights!)
Currently we have ripped down the wallpaper and boarder, and Mr spackled. Next he has to sand and possibly spackle and sand again, hopefully not though.
We’re planning on breaking up the room into three parts; tv area, kids area, and guys/pool area. I’ll try and get a floor plan put together to give you more of a visual, soon.
Here’s what we’re/I’m planning on doing:
1. Paint walls
2. Paint and frame out bar – to update it a bit
3. Get/buy bar stools
4. Get/buy 2 TVs
5. Find/buy kids table – diy?
6. Get all the furniture moved down there
7. Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize!
8. Figure out toy storage solution
9. Figure out pictures to hang
And probably more but that’s all I can think of right now.
I found an amazing rug at Homegoods last week for the TV area! I can’t wait to put I down and start accessorizing! I also scored FREE old schoolhouse chairs for the kids area on Craigslist. (thank you wonderful husband for picking them up for me!!) More on all this later, and I will keep you up to date on the progress as well.
In other news, my baby boy turned 3 months old on Monday. :( it’s amazing to watch him grow, but I’m sad to see it go so fast. I almost cry when I look at pictures from the hospital, he’s changed so much and looks so different already. But I’m looking forward to watching him grow and learn. There’s nothing like being a mom.
These are some samples I got back from the photographer for his 3 month pictures.
I’m a pretty proud mama.
He’s pretty darn cute. (:
I am slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things, and it feels awesome. I’ve got so many ideas floating around in my head, I don’t know how I am going to keep up with them! I also got lots of recipes I like to add, now that I’m back into my cooking grove. Here’s too the start of some fun!
