In the words of Maxwell;" Tartar sauce! "
That mirror needs some serious cleaning.
SO here we are in all my 36, 37 ish weeks of glory. Double chin and all. Nobody really knows when I'm due, but I'm measuring 37 weeks...and my belly is GINORMOUS!
Today I was checked, about 2 cm dilated, and 60% effaced. To those of you who don't know what that means, I really don't either.
All I know is, I'll take it.
I didn't dilate or anything with Maxwell or Evan. So I'll take what I can get at this point.
Besides working on getting this child out, I've been nesting like a mad-woman...oh who am I kidding, I'm mad-woman all the time. But this I did on the wall between our kitchen and living room. It really is an odd space to decorate and I've changed it a kabillion times, but for now I'm digging this...

And for those of you coming to visit us soon...I've been working on the guest room. This room is WAY to french/country/girly for Justin and is the reason it is the guest room. (still working on our room, but it's coming along quite nicely I think...I know y'all were on the edge of your seats wondering what was up with our guest room...never fear it will come...someday)
Anyway, here is a little sneak peek of the guest room which is about 80% done. And I want to add(mostly for my husbands sake) I didn't spend ONE DIME to update this room, I used materials we already had.

Oh, and OF COURSE I forgot to take before pictures. The best way to describe the room before would be fiesta. The curtains were really bright and stripped and I really only had a few accent pieces on the wall to mimic that. It was blah in my opinion.

I painted these tables to have that vintagey( yeah I made that up...you dig?) beaten look.

Thanks for such a nice comment on my blog. I really love your birdies, they look very Pottery Barn-esque! Good luck with the new baby.

Anne you look totally amazing. Your face is glowing and beautiful. I wish I had an ounce of your beauty during this pregnancy. I am looking tore up from the floor up :) hehehehe!. My stomach already looks like I am due any day. I am definitely posting picks after this weekend. You have to see so you will feel much better about yourself :) hehehe.

Also, I love what you have done with your decorating. I too am starting to have the early stages of nesting that take place around 3ish months. I love how you get so much done despite how unbelievably awful you feel.

Your baby will be here soon I feel it!
