Sorry for my long delays between blogs! Between our internet being down (grr Mediacom), our constant projects (to be blamed on my nesting!) and our busy schedules with work, it's been neglected. So, I'm sorry. I have kept us busy with projects. We recently decided not to buy a house in here in Webster City, but decided to fix up our rental house a bit to make it more like home.
This is our (mostly Joel's since he's the heavy lifter!) to do list:
Empty out guest bedroom, which currently is guest room/Joel's work stuff/gun closet/computer room/extra storage. This will become Tessa's room. Once the room is empty, we need to put the dresser and rocker/ottoman in there, then build the crib, paint the changing table, and arrange the furniture, all of which is sitting in the living room right now.
Rearrange living room. We bought a new tv stand and bookshelf so once we have space in the living room (after the above project is complete) then we will build the new furniture for the living room, get it rearranged, and hang curtains. Since it is a rental, we can't paint so we are stuck with decorating it in other creative ways.
Finally, we will create a guest room in the basement using wall dividers and bookshelves to create a room for when the grandparents come visit.
I will leave you with my most recent photo, at week 22!
