Weekend Rewind

Our weekend was a productive one to say the least. Although we were nailed with yet another snow storm, as in 4 foot snow drifts kind of storm.

Friday night it all started, the productivity and the storm. The recliner for the nursery came in, so we could finally decide on the room layout, as that was the last big thing we were waiting for in there. 

We opted to change the room around despite my original plans, but I actually like the layout now. The chair is big, and so very comfy - I will have no problem feeding the baby in in, or falling asleep in it:

Mike had to get up early to take his parents to Toronto for their flight at 5:30 AM. Needless to say I didn't sleep well, knowing he was going out in the storm and it was nasty out. But they made it to the airport alright and M made it back home, just in time before they shut the highway down. However, the next issue was him trying to get into the driveway. We had 4 ft snow drifts on each side (we have 2 driveways). 

So he headed straight to the farm to get the snow blower on the tractor and had it blown out in no time. Our little snow blower died last year, so luckily this was available. 

By the time he got home, it was lunch time, so with very little groceries in the house, we managed to make sandwiches. Needless to say we weren't about to go into town to get groceries. 

Saturday was Brandon's Birthday, but my sister ended up having to postpone it due to the weather. So I washed all the baby clothes, swaddles, blankets, towels, etc, folded them and found homes for them all!! I also made the crib all up: 

We will have to add some color to the wall above the crib with the babies name, once s/he is here and we decide on one!  I'm sure the mobile will help too. I got a lot of organizing done in the nursery, so that was a great feeling. The only things really left are shelves to hang, bookshelves to make, growth board to make, and books to put away. The one thing with gender nuetral, is that you can't fill all the drawers yet, just the gender nuetral stuff. 

With the baby living on the main floor for the first 3 months, diapers will need to be stored on the main floor, as well as some sleepers. I fully expect to still use the nursery, but for convenience it will be nice to have a place for this stuff. 

While I was busy upstairs in the nursery, M emptied the bathroom, and started gutting it!! 

We made homemade macaroni and cheese for dinner (desperate measures over here) and relaxed in the evening after M walked the dogs. 

Sunday I got up and started the morning off with baking homemade chocolate chip cookies (Grandmas recipe of course), actually the dough was frozen leftovers from Christmas, so I really just had to scoop and bake them! I will make sure I freeze dough next time, it was soo easy and I used convection bake on the oven for the first time!! 

M was helping my Dad move the pool table and a freezer during the morning. When he got home, we went and finally got groceries. 

We headed to my sisters for Brandon's birthday and guess who forgot her camera and has no pics?? Oh that would be me. I also almost forgot my purse when leaving there... Can we say baby brain? 

Once we were home, we put away the groceries and relaxed on the couch. I watched the bachelor wedding and Grammies (flipped back and forth). 

Today I am working on some more baby projects. Which I started off with building the pack and play and it was rather frustrating. Glad we have a small one to travel with, because I would not want to be tearing this thing apart if I planned on using the bassinet/change pad portion!

Josh wanted to get one of those recliners, but I vetoed it based on our space - that thing would take up the entire room! Our glider is supposed to be here tomorrow.

I picked up a basket at Target for keeping diapers in the other room. It'll most likely go in the bedroom for now, but it can easily be carried to the living room. It's got different compartments for diapers, wipes, creams, etc. I think there's 5 compartments altogether and a convenient handle for carrying.
