What's happening around here...

Hope everyone is having a great Monday (as great as it can be that is!).  I finished up with work last week and Josh (hubby) and I are now off for the summer.  Remember, we are both teachers? This is great timing as our little one's arrival date is getting closer so we have some time to finally rest and finalize preparations.  Unfortunately I've been feeling horrible the past day or two. Doctor thinks it's not pregnancy related, maybe just a bug.  Our AC decided to stop working again last night so we slept in our basement bedroom which was still warm but bearable.  Not what an 8.5 month sick, pregnant woman living in the south needs.  Anyhow, it's working again for now so fingers crossed for no more problems!

Preparations for baby are coming along.  I wish I could say that the nursery is ready to go and the hospital bags are packed but with wrapping up the school year and showers, weddings, birthing classes at night, birthdays, etc. there just hasn't been much time.  We're very blessed to be apart of it all but man have I been exhausted! Josh has been getting the nesting bug too.  This little girl already has him wrapped around her little finger, which he'll proudly admit.  It's so cute to see him go into her nursery to spend time in there and to get excited about putting together the car seat and stroller.  He's also been wanting to help decorate the nursery- helping to pick out the paint color, furniture, and planning where the decor will go.  I count myself very lucky that he is so involved!  I was planning on posting some pictures of the progress in the room but it looks like another bomb went off.  I will however, show you all this awesome rug that I found at Home Goods a few weeks back that looks pretty darn identical to the sheepskin one I've been eyeing at Restoration Hardware.  This rug was $16.99 though and not $99.

A pretty close match, right?  Below is an elephant picked up by Josh when we were in Pottery Barn Kids that couldn't be put down.  Again, wrapped around her little finger...

BTW, how does the new design layout look!?  Time to get some more rest and catch up with the DVR!
