As of late:

We are almost there!

 I am almost 33 weeks pregnant. I cannot believe how quickly this thing has gone by, yet sometimes- mostly at night- how slowly it seems to go, too!

I can't wait to meet my baby. It's going to be so surreal, I know. I want to soak up every moment I can with him. I want to read to him, sing to him, teach him about Jesus. I just can't wait.

I recently quit my job, and have been pursuing other ways to make money. I do have a stay-at-home job I will be doing, but I have also been stocking up my Etsy shop, as well as selling items we don't need/want anymore to make this thing work! Both Josh and I have a total peace about this. This is what we're supposed to be doing.

Anyways, I thought I would share with you some of my newest items. The creative/nesting bug has hit, I think. I have been going nuts creatively, and have been a cleaning fool! 

Anyways, without further adieu, I give you pretties! Please be sure to "like" my page on Facebook, too, if you haven't already! :)

Nursery sneak peak!

Here's some pictures of things happening around here... Of course I'll do a nursery reveal once it's done! :)

There's still so much to do, but I'm so happy with the results so far! :)

Laundry Room Re-do!

So our laundry room is tiny. Just a walk-way from the garage to the rest of the house, really. There wasn't any changing the size of it, but it just really didn't work for us functionally.

Here's the laundry room before:
(For the record, this is more of a "during" and it didn't always look this trashy. Promise! There was a wire shelf up (that was totally impractical because it didn't even reach both sides of the walls so stuff fell off all the time) And those cupboards are the dumbest. They were so tall I couldn't reach anything in them without climbing up on the washer/dryer. So, those really needed to come down.)

And this is after, minus all the laundry supplies up on the shelf. I just wanted you to see the beautiful wood shelves. :) I love them so much! My husband did a fabulous job on the whole room. I was just the one who picked things out. He did everything! I'm blessed. 

So here's one side after:
I want to eventually get new labels for everything. Cute ones. But for now, these work. And they were $2, so that's a perk...Also, please note my cute laundry detergent holder. :) Love it!

Here's the other side after. I love it so much! It makes so much more sense to me now, and as an added bonus I can now reach things easily. :)

In the end, "we" painted, added shelves, changed the light fixture, and spent a few dollars on some organizing items. 
I think I eventually want to have a little "clothesline" up above, since I plan to cloth diaper. I don't want little bum covers drying all over my house. But we'll see. I am always changing things up around here, so who knows how long this re-do will even be done.

Kidding, husband. Kidding. ;)
