I've Been A Bit Busy

Oh my, time flies when you are having fun!
Or, maybe not so much fun, but rather preparing for fun!
I am so sorry that I haven't posted in forever and a day, but I have been really busy. I have 2 very big projects to share with you!

First up, I have been working on a little number I like to call Baby Girl!

We are thrilled to be adding a little girl to our family! Now we will have a prince and a princess.
And while I'd love to say the pregnancy has been a breeze, it's been a bit more like a hurricane. I have been sick. Very sick. In need to medication sick. So sick I havent' felt like blogging, or anything else. I seem to be feeling a bit better now that I am in my 21st week, but the nausea/pukies just don't want to completely leave. But, I know it will all be worth it! Our little girl should arrive on December 9 (scheduled c-section), one month before her already very proud big brother turns 4.

And our second big project:
Selling our House!
Lord have mercy, I never knew how much work it would take to even get the thing listed let alone sold! So through the morning sickness we have packed away and stored a ton of stuff, done some home maintenance that we kept putting off, had some painting done, etc. And don't even get me started on keeping the place "show-ready" at all times with a 3.5 year old while working full time and being pregnant.
I am pretty proud of the way the house shows. I even had a realtor ask the other if we had a professional stager! I was very flattered.

We have a few prospective homes to buy when we finally sell our place. Wish us luck!

And please do forgive me for not blogging in a while. There just isn't much going on in the way of decor at the moment. However, once we sell and are ready to move into a new place, I will be ready to do some serious nesting!

Yay, a daughter! I sure hope you have a much easier time with the rest of your pregnancy, and that your home sells quickly. It shows really well on the video -- you've done a great job. When you have the time and energy to post, we'll be reading!
