Nursery Progress Vol. 2 *Movin’ right along*

What a different a day makes. Last night I was so impressed with Antz for putting up the curtains. It felt so official like this room now belongs to Olivia. Well today, we have outdone ourselves.  Story came by with Spuzz and brought us Chipotle for lunch *yum* and hung out for a couple of hours. We […]

Nursery Progress *hint still very much in progress*

This evening Antz put up the curtain rod and the curtains. Back in February, his Mom hemmed the bottom of the curtains because they were way too long, we totally measured them to stop just at the baseboard. When she finished sewing them we held them up to the window and they seemed fine but […]

Paint Schmaint!

It’s an ongoing saga of painting this tiny 10 x 10 room! We orginally painted the room the second day we moved in here 4 years ago and I don’t recall it being so tedious. So far the day is almost over and we are just on the second coat of primer. We’ll most likely […]

Fortunate smiles upon us!

This morning we rose nice and early, about 8ish and got started on actual paint! 15 minutes into priming the ceiling I was already tired. I traded trim duty with roller brushing which wasn’t any simpler. I managed to sprinkle paint all over myself but we got the first coat of primer on the ceiling […]

Craigslist/My husband Rules!

I was a skeptic but now I am a believer in craigslist power. Antz found the exact Oeuf crib in birch brand- new in box for $750!! The chick selling it called us and said it was still available. She lives in Bel Air which is a swank neighborhood and she told us to pick […]
