July has absolutely flown by! I can't believe we are in the last week of the month, and then August hits. I am officially in the 3rd trimester now, which is so exciting and yet a little intimidating. This means that in 13 weeks (approximately) Tessa will be here, in this crazy world! We have been very busy this month, with working non stop, working on the nursery, and my other crazy nesting needs. We have redone the living room, updated the dining room a little, and of course, our bedroom.
I convinced Joel we needed to go to Ikea. So this past Tuesday, when we were both off, we ventured up to Minneapolis. 5 hours and lots of money later, we had a complete bedroom set, a bunch of kitchen stuff, some things for the nursery, and a few misc. items we couldn't live without. We also stopped at the outlet mall and found a couple cute little outfits. Overall, it was a great day, although we are now catching up on sleep. We don't set alarms often in our house, so the mere fact that the alarm was set that day was pretty amazing, let alone the fact that we got up and around when it went off.
