Weekend Rewind

Can I just start off by saying we did get snow, and we still have it, but it is just a dusting compared to what my Mom got in London - 3 feet!! I told her it better melt by Wednesday, when I have my doctors appointment. The chances of it melting though isn't good, because we are well below freezing temps. Looks like winter just might be here to stay. 

Moving on to our weekend, it was a cold one, yet productive. Is it bad I can't even remember what we did Friday night? I know it wasn't anything too exciting because M had to work on Saturday. So we will move right along to Saturday, M worked until about 3 PM, then came home and his Dad came over to help move the furniture out of the nursery and off to the farm to be painted. M is painting with the paint gun to save on time and it provides a smoother coat. 

So with a hot chocolate in hand, I went along to the farm with him and hung out in the house with M's Mom while M put the first coat on everything. We ended up staying for dinner and watched an action movie, but I have no clue what it was called... I decided I would crochet instead. 

We were home around 8:30ish and just relaxed.

Sunday, M finished the touch ups on the nursery and it is officially done being painted!! Oh my goodness we love it!! I am still in shock that this is our nursery for our baby. 

M went to the farm to put the second coat on the furniture and came home for lunch. I just worked on laundry. After lunch we put the crib up, put the rocking chair in the room, as well as the diaper pail and rug! We have decided if the rug will stay or if we will end up buying a new one. Time will tell when the textiles start coming in. 

The crib in all it's glory (minus the mattress that hasn't been ordered yet) 

I had to retake this pic this morning because the one I posted last night made the crib look pink because the lighting in there sucks for now (it's just a light bulb hanging from the ceiling) and it was dusk by the time we finished. We have yet to find a new fixture. 

Feels great to have this done! And I just love how it is all coming together!! 
We are still brainstorming ideas for the bathroom and struggling with what we are going to do in there. M is talking free standing tub and double walk in shower and I am talking keeping the bathroom essentially the same, just adding double sinks, new floors, obviously a new tub with shower in it. So we are stuck.

Hope everyone had a great weekend too!!

I bet that's an awesome feeling!! I can't wait to finish painting and we're going to pick up the changing table/dresser tomorrow. I know that will make it so much more real because then I can start putting things away in drawers.
