Spring Has Sprung!

Happy Spring! The weather has been beautiful the past few days, and I don't want to see snow again until December!

We had a busy weekend, as usual. We actually managed to get a lot done! This is the point in my pregnancy where the panic sets in, and I start the nesting process. With my history of preterm labor, I never know what's going to happen or when/if I'll be put on bed rest. We have quite a few projects to complete before the baby gets here, and I'm in a hurry to get it all done before the contractions take over!

One of our projects is to redecorate our bedroom, and get all the clutter out to make room for Nugget. Our babies sleep in our room at night for the first 4 months, and there is no room on my side of the bed for the bassinet. My photo albums and Grant's CD's have taken over!

On Saturday afternoon, we decided to do some shopping. I really needed to start buying some Spring/Summer clothes for the kids, and we desperately needed a bedroom makeover. We have had the same bedding for about 8 years. Buying bedding for a king size bed is definitely expensive, and we could never decide what we wanted. We had plenty of luck this time, and left the store with new bedding, curtains, curtain rods, and lots of adorable dresses for Lexie, including a beautiful Easter dress!

The kids were so well behaved during the process, that we decided to treat them to dinner and ice cream at McDonald's. They both declared that it was the best day ever!

Once home, we went to work on our bedroom. Even though we need to finish clearing the clutter and paint the walls, the new curtains and bedding transformed the room! After we finished up, we had some friends over for the evening.

Our bed is so cozy now, and the new curtains do a great job at keeping the sun out of our room in the morning, so we both slept great last night!


Today, we visited Grant's family for a few hours. The kids always look forward to our visit with MawNaw, PapPap, and Nannie!


They had fun wrestling with MawNaw!


As usual, they didn't want to leave!


Our evening flew by after we got home. Weekends need to be one day longer!!!

  8. When you walk in your room, how can you stop yourself from just diving headfirst onto that glorious bed?!! Ok, maybe you'll have to wait until you're not pregnant.

    Speaking of which, you're going to be busy getting ready for a bit now, aren't you? Don't overdo it now. You rest up (on that bed), ok?
