Checkin' In...

Whoa! It's so hard to blog. I didn't realize how busy I am. I suppose if my company didn't block blogger, then I could keep up more. I'm a crappy blogger, and a crappy commenter. I am just crap. ;) My apologies!!

Tonight we relaxed and bbq'd and I was able to take a few more pics of our baby's room's progress. Pictures of the gorgeous view off of our deck are attached too. I Love Spring!!

~~Note: The walking stick that is shown below has a cute-to-us story. I'd like to share. About 2 years ago, Patrick and I were on one of our many walks together through a local park. We had recently experienced a storm that had knocked lots of loose branches off of the trees along the path. I fell in love with one of them. Claiming that I could wrap tons of different types of fabric all around it and make it a festival-walking stick. (I saw some diiirty hippie dude with one at Rothbury and really wanted to make one of my own) Patrick was right when he said it would be too heavy to carry as a walking stick, and he wasn't too keen on the idea of carrying this stick around for the rest of our walk, and though I begged, literally, I got over it. We continued stick in tow.

Two days later I came home to THE STICK. He got in his truck, retraced our path, found my stick and brought it home. (I love him!) So, walking stick idea out...we decided to save the stick and coat the puppy in about 6 coats of polyurithane. (My parents have a log that is also polurithaned that is special to them) Now the stick was perserved for a lifetime. But we didn't know what to do with it, so it was a corner piece in our living room for awhile. Now that the baby's sex is going to be a surprise, and we've decided on a Nature Theme for it's room, the stick makes perfect sense to be a staple in that room. Check out how the hubster purchased some twine, and hung this baby...for the baby!!

Gorgeous Spring Afternoon here in the Midwest!


  1. Great pictures. The room looks so great! I can't wait to come over and take a look:) Love Love the nature theme!

  2. The room really does look awesome. And I love the walking stick! What a great story and a perfect place to display it. I can't wait to meet him/her!

    How about some ultrasound pics!?!

  3. Thanks guys!! Anna...I believe I am going to pull out the scanner and work on those pics tonight! I totally forgot!! :) You can tell me what you think about the "boy" pic. ;)

  4. Regardless of the sex, we are doing a nature-ish theme too. For a boy, we'll do more animals...for a girl, more plants, trees, and a few not-pink flowers. I LOVE your walking stick and the story behind it!!
