A Finished Nursery

This morning we were woken up by a buzz at our gate at 7am! It was the crew with the iron guy and they have been happily working for the past 2 hours drilling holes for the iron posts.

I think we are having an inspection today so *fingers crossed, rubbing rabbits foot* I am holding my breathe we pass. It’s such a relief that they are working again but there are still some obstacles and the crew has to reinstall our floodlight *my Mom is bringing us a new one from her house in Apple Valley*, fix our garage sensors, the garage won’t close because they had to move the sensors so it needs to be re-configured and put back a part of our stair railing. If everything keeps going like it is, they have 5 more days of work so it’s a tight deadline.

8 Months of hard work!

My honey bunny took some pics of the nursery with the SLR this morning which look much better than the ones I took last night with the Canon powershot. Voila! Our finished nursery!!

We are going to email these to the lovely woman who sold us the Oeuf furniture from craigslist today. She is preggers with her 3rd child and she had 2 boys and she really wanted a girl but she was having another boy. Which is why we scored such a deal on the Oeuf furniture.

Today I am going to World Market to buy some pretty pillows for the couch. I also need food for Maxie. I still need to find an electrician to fix the light in the closet and the kitchen. Tomorrow my Mom is coming to LA for her art show Saturday. YAY!

I just found out we passed the first rough inspection!! I can’t believe I am actually hearing good news. Whew! Now they can finish the railing to and the next 2 days they can start working on the roof. SO RAD!!

The chick who sold us the furniture wrote back:

You guys are the cutest. Thank you for sending the pictures and the nice words! I love the orange–so happy. As for us, we are figuring out our new family dynamic with Zac. It has been fun but hectic. Bryan and I send our best wishes to you 3. May you have as much love as your hearts can bear!


Awww, tear! I can’t believe we got such a deal on the furniture *saved $700!!!*
