Recent Happenings

What's going on with our lives?  I feel like a lot actually.  Between trying to sell our house, building a new one and getting organized for this baby on the way we haven't had much free time lately!  I can't say I would change anything but it definitely seems like the days are flying by.

A few weeks ago Ryan and I met a decorator at the design center to start picking out everything for our new home.  We spent nearly three hours with them and barely picked out the kitchen and master bath details.  It was a little overwhelming at first but I'm really excited to see everything come together.  Ryan and I actually have pretty similar taste and while we like the traditional look we like to pull in things a little more contemporary as well. We may not have picked things that will fit everyone's taste but I think it will really look good.  Here's a sneak peak of the kitchen details....


We've also been busy lately trying to keep our house clean for any showings we may have when we're not home.  This is definitely a challenge with a black dog that is shedding like crazy right now but for the most part  we've managed to keep up with keeping it clean.  We  haven't had any offers yet but hopefully we'll see some movement here pretty soon.  I'm not sure how much longer I can keep up with keeping it clean!  I've been complaining lately on how much my it hurts my back to sweep and then mop and clean the wood floors.  I'm hoping he'll suggest we get a temporary maid but he hasn't quite picked up on my hint.  Either that or he's just ignoring me...

On the baby front we've been busy finalizing our registry.  Ryan's sisters have offered to host a shower and we're having it this Sunday!  They planned it on short notice so one of his sisters could be here since she will be in town and I'm glad it all worked out.  The invitations they sent out are super cute and I can't wait to see what they have put together and to see everyone...


Ryan's sister also brought with her two huge tubs with lots of baby gear and little boy clothes!  I'm pretty sure he is going to be the best dressed little baby in town.  My mom and I have also been stocking up on a few things as well.... :)

Lastly, we've been preparing for my brothers wedding which is only two months away.  A few other girls and I are hosting a shower for Courtney and I can't wait to post the details.  The invitations are so cute and I think she is going to love it all.  More to come on this...

Like I said, we have lots going on right now but I wouldn't change any of it!  Hope you're having a good week :)
