What a week, boys and girls! If you didn't know, my mom was here all last week and sadly I had to take her to the airport this morning to go back home to Utah. Don't worry, I cried my eyes out. Her trips here are never long enough! We accomplished sooo much! She really knows how to crack the whip, and I am good at taking orders (not!), so sometimes I had to say, "Denise, calm down. Let's take a break and EAT FOOD!" I had to keep asking her all week, "Aren't you hungry yet?" and "How do you have sooo much energy?" Her response was always, "Melissa, I'm not 7.5 months pregnant." Go figure.
I can't believe we got as much as we did done. It was nutso and so much fun. We were able to make some good decisions about baby purchases and totally re-hauled two rooms in our house. So, you wanna see some pictures? Of course you do! (OH! I wanted to add that we are painting a darling big bookshelf that will be where the stroller is currently. And that little nightstand circa 199? built by Aaron will be painted white too).
Ok, I'll show. I was kind enough (i know, I'm good like that) to do some 360 degree shots of the bebe's room.
So, No, we aren't finished with this room. And no, we aren't going to have that picture of Aaron & I there... I don't even know where that came from. Picture cute little booties and other delights hung from the little pegs. It will be SOOO cute. Also, mind you, even though the next shot has lots of great Beatrix Potter prints, it will NOT be a bunny room. We are going to add other good things, so don't be SO mad that there are lots many bunnies. Okay? Fine. Good.
mind you, this crib quilt is HAND QUILTED by my mom. Isn't it incredible??
ok. breathe. I know, that was a whole lot of baby room goodness. But, now I have some more glorious-ness to show. Remember when I showed my OLD "craft room/office situation"? Well, we've added MORE storage (you know, we had to make room for the babe) and a makeshift desk for Aaron. (I guess it isn't totally fair for me to have 2 rooms to myself). Prepare to be blown away. I love it in this room! I took some more 360 degree shots... you know, to get the FULL effect.
this is a salute/tribute to the Jazz, and Aaron for that matter. I needed to make the room a little MANLY for his sake. What do we think?oh, I forgot to move that number thing to the right of the desk. Get excited for Sharing Time my little friends. :) My mom and I worked on that little ditty too. But, it is covering my card-stock paper holder. Sorry.
Here is a little shot of TEAM STINKIN' AMAZING. (I just decided that was our team name). We took this late Sunday night...and I am looking "oh, so cute" -- oh wait, darn. Sorry, mom, to bring down the shot a few notches. But, we had to get a shot of the Team for posterity's sake.
I know, you are all jealous of my mom's Mad Skills. It was a fantastic week and I love her soooo much. Thanks, Mom. You truly are the bomb.com Love to you!
