This has been such a great and exciting week. Monday, the crown molding was installed (it's so big, I love it!). Tuesday, my dad came up and painted the crown and touched up the room. He and Chris also brought the changing table/dresser and hutch in the nursery along with the glider. Wednesday, Chris built the crib and my parents brought up the bedding. Her room is almost complete. There are still a handful of details that need to be done but we're getting there! I am thrilled with how it is coming along. I walk by her room and my heart melts. It's my new favorite room in the house. I sat in the glider all last night just staring at the room and dreaming of the day that she will be in there. I ate breakfast in there this morning. It's pathetic really but I am just so happy. It's all becoming so real now. I honestly can't even think about holding her because I get way too excited and antsy. My new favorite hobby is shopping for the peanut. She officially has the cutest wardrobe I have ever seen! She is so loved already. Her closet is my second favorite place in the house. So fun. Our house feels complete now as I walk by all the rooms. Kate has already blessed our life so much and we are counting down the days until we get to meet her!! I'll be posting pics on her blog soon so stay turned!

And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it. All because we put the tv on the wall! Here’s a little walk down our DIY family room makeover. Before . I started with this old corner cabinet that i got for free years ago and painted chocolate brown. I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace. Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
