This is how my day started.... waking up at 6am next to my husband of two years to the song "Amazed"...it's my favorite song and every time I hear it my eyes well up with tears. Today was no different. In fact the tears streamed down my face as I laid in bed listening to the words,"Lord, I'm amazed by you..." I can't even believe how full my life is and how much more complete it will be tomorrow. Chris and I talked about these past two years and I was literally at a loss for words. I honestly don't deserve all of this. The Lord has been so gracious. I have been a bit overwhelmed today as the birth of our daughter is literally hours away. I have been doing my best to cherish every second I have left of her in my tummy. It has been a great 9 months and to be honest, I am going to miss being pregnant. There is nothing better than feeling her kick, squirm and hiccup from within. I have loved carrying her everywhere with me. I know it will be 100x better when she is in our arms but I will miss the closeness that we have shared. I consider myself blessed to have had such a great pregnancy. I thank God everyday that He allowed me to carry this baby girl, His child that He has created perfect in His sight. I can't even begin to think about what she is going to look like, who's personality she will have, if she will get my out of control hair.... so exciting. Tonight our hearts are full of nothing but pure joy and we are so ready to meet this little one that we have prayed so long and hard for. Tomorrow will be one of the happiest days of our life as we wait to welcome Katelyn Marie Andrews into this world....please keep praying for us! She's on her way!! Ahhh!
Remember that one time my husband bought a tv wall mount and then I decided we needed a new tv stand? And then it made me realize our dark furniture would look way better if I lightened it up? 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
