A little catch up

I guess I kind of just made a huge announcement and then left for awhile...I'm really sorry about that! I've been a little on the spacey side for the last couple of weeks. I'll be 6 weeks (I think) tomorrow and for the most part I'm feeling...pregnant. Much more nauseousness this time around then what I had with Jaelynn. But if that means that I'm growing a healthy baby in there then I'll take it!! My due date is around December 20th by my calculations!! What a wonderful Christmas gift for our family!! The first appointment is May 17th. They will try to listen for a heartbeat then but can't usually hear anything until after 12 weeks.

Things have been very busy around our house the last few weeks. It seems like we are always on the go! I did find time for a nap Sunday though which was great. A couple of months ago we decided to do some revamping in the kitchen. I had all of this dead space that I was filling up with junk because I didn't have storage. So I did some measuring and we went and ordered some new cupboards. Yep...I did the measuring...what was Kevin thinking!!

After some trial and error we finally got the right cupboards ordered and in the right sizes. A couple of weeks ago they finally came in and I couldn't wait to get them installed! Kevin is back to work but they are only working 40 hours so he had last Friday off and decided to get them done. I'm not allowed to touch a tape measure again...ever. Kevin had to do some cutting and we had to completely change the layout but my new cupboards are in and they look great!!
The big pantry cupboard is what is new.My 'walk-in' pantry!!

Unfortunately we could not get rid of the ugly wallpaper in the nook. The people that put it up did not prepare the wall properly and as we were trying to tear it off the drywall started coming off too. But I am going to paint the ceiling and trim in there. I think that will make a big difference. I'm also going to put up a big white board above the freezer so I can keep my inventory there. I just love how my kitchen looks now! I have room to put everything in a place and things look so clean!! The next home improvement project is redoing another upstairs room so we have room for this new baby!!


  1. Congratulations on the new baby! The kitchen looks great - glad you have the space you need to feel organized!

  2. Paint the wallpaper with Kilz it will cover it up and then you can paint with whatever you would like to do, or you would get 1/4 drywall and cover mud then do whatever you want to do with the room......good luck on the project in the room and the project you are working on internally.....
