Finishing touches

So, it feels like I have a bunch to do before this baby comes, but not a lot of time. But, on the flip side of the coin, I am not in freak-out nesting mode yet either. I have slowly but surely been checking some things off my list!

Still, we have to look over our baby registry and take a shopping trip to grab some items that we need, but didn't receive...I'm excited for this!!! I think we will do this Sunday, (our 1 year anniversary), before we celebrate Father's Day and my sister's bday.

Next up, I need to find my baby-to-be a photo album...I have taken lots of baby-prep books that I'd like to have in a book, as well as on the pc. I have the pics printed out already, just need to finish the process!

And lastly, Patrick and I have SOOOOO many soccer t-shirts from over the years...his military jerserys, our college t-shirts/jerseys, club & tournament t-shirts, coaching t-shirts, Beer-League t-shirts....AAAHHH, so freakin' many to part with, but way too many to keep in drawers any longer. So, about 2 months ago, I contacted a friend of mine who recently had her late mother's clothes put into a quilt and asked for the lady's name who did the work. Finally, that lady and I made correspondence and now we need to round up our goodies. Oh goody goody! I can't wait to see the finished project~~she only takes two weeks to do so too!!!

Not that I HAVE to have the pics/quilt finished before the baby arrives, but for some reason, these things are weighing on my mind and have been lingering for so long now, I'll be happy to just have them finished!

Next up...DEEP cleaning, like washing down each wall in my house, I don't know why, but I feel like this is something that HAS to be done before the baby arrives.

Perhaps I am nesting.


  1. What a great quilt idea!

    Would you believe I never got the nesting bug? Wellll...if you knew me really well, you'd believe it. :)

  2. Guess what, you are nesting! That feeling of having to have those things done is nesting, at least the way I experienced it anyway. I knew the baby wouldn't be crawling around on the floor for at least a few months, but I also knew that I didn't want to have to clean for about that long, so I wanted to get it done!

    I love the quilt idea and can't wait to see the finished product! He/she will be here so soon!
    BTW, did you decide on a name yet or what you will call him if it is a boy?

  3. Gina--funny about the nesting bug, from your posts, I probably could've guessed. ;)

    The quilt idea has been 3 years in the making, my mom ordered one for her mom's clothes when she passed, and is STILL waiting for a finished project...I am glad this fell in my lap a few months ago.

    Anna...we haven't decided on a girl name yet, just tossing around a few and seeing if they stick...but if it's a boy, we've decided to start a tradition and make him be a JR. We will probably nickname him PJ, for Patrick Junior.....(I hear Zach will be taking full credit for that! If you remember him mentioning the nickname at Jeremy and Jackies awhile back) :)

  4. Ummm, that was ME who said PJ, so put Zach in his place! I knew someone named PJ which is why I said it. Stupid Zach. :)

  5. OOOOO Damn girl! I don't actually remember how it went down! My apologies!!! The credit is yours and yours alone! :)
