First and foremost, the little unexpected summer sabbatical that I took, well there was a reason for that. It's a big secret actually, and I've been waiting patiently to tell you guys. You see, I've got this little baby growing in my stomach that's been sucking up all my energy and made me feel like crap for most of the summer. That's right people, I'M PREGNANT! We're expecting our little baby blogger early February. We couldn't be happier. I know that sounds so cliche, but it really is true. This little peanut has already made us so happy and he isn't even here yet. And before you start asking, no, we're not going to find out the sex. We prefer the surprise at the end and I also secretly love how much it irritates everyone else who can't fathom why we don't want know.
But this is a blog about interior design and DIYing, not about babies. So fear not, I promise not to go crazy posting about baby things. I mean, I will tell you every intimate detail of the nursery, but aside from that I'll try to keep it to a minimum.
So aside from living in babyland, I have a few other things going on in my life that I can't wait to tell you about. I've got tons of projects - big and small - that I'm ready to start. And I've been busy busy busy all summer working with some new clients. So stay tuned for these projects:
- Design and furnish the nursery
- Add a bedroom to the top floor
- Design a custom barn door for new bedroom, kinda like this:
- Pick out a new kitchen carpet
- Find a new bench for the master bedroom
- Accessorize the picture rails on the 3rd floor
- Stencil the 3rd floor hallway, loving this one:
And I'm also hoping to use some of my recent client experiences to give you guys some pointers. Here are some topics that keep coming up:
- Picking out paint colors
- Finding decent window treatments
- How to make a bedroom a haven
- Accessorizing your space
Ok, so don't get mad if these posts don't come as quickly as you'd like. The little thing swimming in my belly leaves me completely exhausted sometimes. But I've got lots of momentum right now and I'm super excited about all to come.
Hope you guys had great summers! I missed you all :)
