So...I may not have been telling the whole truth the other day when I said that I have been MIA because of my job.  That is part of it, but I also have something else going on that is taking up all of my time and energy......

B and I are expecting our first baby and we are SO excited!  I am 16 weeks along now and starting to show a little.  It just started to feel real to me the other day when I couldn't button my "fat" pants.  Uh oh.  And even though we have talked about this for a while, read a million books and mentally prepared for what is going to happen, it is still amazing to me what a woman's body is capable of.....I can't believe there is another life inside me!!  It is CRAZY, but so unbelievably exciting at the same time!  We can't wait to meet him/her. 

So along with the laundry list of projects that I have planned for the house, we will also be focusing a lot of our attention on nesting over the next few months.  I have so many ideas for the nursery and can't wait to share them with you.  I actually may have a few too many ideas floating around in my head though; enough to decorate 10 nurseries......but I still have a few months to work that out.  A little over 5 months to be exact.  Little B (which is just one of the names that we have been calling him/her) is going to be here on August 13th (or so the doctor tells me).  All I know is that if its any later than that I'm going to be waddling around cursing everyone in my path.  "Damn you, husband, for convincing me that A/C was not a "must-have" on the house-hunting list"....

But I digress....

So that's the news on this front.  What's new with all of you?  Any advice to share?  Maybe some great design inspiration for nurseries that you've seen lately?  I can't wait to share my ideas with you and even throw in a few nursery-room DIY projects!!  There are so many things I want to accomplish!  Oh my! 

So once I get the energy to lift my head up off the pillow I will get started on that.....
