Random Ramblings

Life has been pretty boring lately in our household, which I am thoroughly enjoying.  I think we both need this down time right now before the babe comes in less then 7 weeks...ahhhhhhhh.

We had our plaster ceilings re-done as well as the walls repaired and painted for the last two weeks.  I was stuck in the bedroom or studio while the work was s.l.o.w.l.y being done.  Maisey certainly didn't like her house being invaded and had a hard time adjusting to her new routines.  Those two weeks made me a bit anxious with how she'll adjust when her routine and wonderfully spoiled life will be less then 7 weeks.  I keep saying that, hoping it will set in and become a reality.  It's not working.

I started the chalkboard window project, which is taking me MUCH longer then I anticipated.  However it's coming along and I am loving the result.  More to come on the finished product!

And in other stupid hormonal news, I made a major measuring mistake.  I had a vision for the baby's collage wall for the nursery to include a canvas of Maisey, since she IS part of our family after all.  Well, it came in the mail and let's just say, it was a bit creepy.  I ordered a 16X16 canvas of a close up shot that I took this summer in Maine. WHAT WAS I THINKING??  It is about twice the size I wanted and envisioned for the collage wall. Now it hangs in our bedroom, staring at us every morning. Hubs says it creeps him out. I would have to agree.  I blame the measuring mistake on the hormones. I only have less then 7 weeks to use that excuse.  Again, it's still not working. 

Just some random ramblings for you all.  Have a great Thursday.

  • The Lemon Chicken recipe I talked about here turned out good!  Not sure it was the hubby's favorite meal, so it may not make it in the meal plans in the future, but it was SUPER duper easy and tasty, in my opinion.
  • We had a doctors appointment to check on the 2 vessel cord situation with the babe. The echo cardio gram of the baby's heart turned out the be great news- heart looks healthy and beautiful. Baby's growth is right on track, so doc's are optimistic for a healthy little one. Praise God!

And I'm glad your baby is doing okay :)

P.S. - Just started to follow you a little while ago! I haven't read too much but I do like it!

Emily, you can use the hormonal excuse for at least several weeks after baby Mancini is born...and then it's lack of sleep that gets the blame for everything for the next couple years! Hope you're doing well. I'm so glad to hear your little one is healthy!
