What a day!

Our Finished Nursery

I love to decorate!  While working a full time job as an instructional designer, I worked on this mood board of the nursery.  I then went from there creating the baby registry, then taking all the amazing gifts people bought us to decorate the nursery.  I hope you enjoy!  Please comment and tell us what you think!  Here is more baby stuff on Lisa's pinterest page.

Chandelier from IKEA 

My Husbands Uncle created this dresser for us.  We used a Ikea dresser as a reference.  We think our is more sturdy.

To Do:Dresser, organizing, and more waiting :). 


The baby is coming soon!  When we purchased the house we were passed down a washer and dryer that worked great, but the dryer made a loud squeaking noise.  This noise would have been too much for the baby.  Last weekend my husband and I went on the search for a new washer and dryer.  I have been looking for sales for weeks and veterans days sale were where it was at!  They were delivered and set up yesterday.  We tried a load last night watching the close wash and dry in the windows.  These LG models even sing a song when they are done. 

We also made our first craigs list sale!  We put the old washer and dryer on the site Saturday night and made a sale Sunday afternoon.  When we put that money towards the new set, we are very happy with our purchase!!

Couponing/Recycle Bank

As I learn how to coupon I am finding many  ways to find coupons. 

Recycle Bank is one way to get coupons for kashi cereal and can be found in kashi cereal.  See the cycle already? Last night I saved 80% on groceries at weis!  Good deal!  Last week I purchased 25 boxes of tissues for just tax! 

32 Weeks!

Cravings:  Caffeine and Sugar.  Still trying to stay away from both of them. 

Energy:    Tired.  I am very lucky and I am allowed to work from home 2 days a week now.  It helps!

Weight Gain: 20ish. 

Baby Movement
: She is still moving around!  I am enjoying most of the movement.  A really neat feeling!

Surprises?: I can't sit up using my abs anymore... I need to use my hands that are swelling! :)

To Do: Parenting classes and put things away when I get the new dresser.
