nearing its end

My nesting phase. It's coming to a close. My mind and body aren't matching up on energy levels...I have lots of ideas in my head but my arms, legs, and the other hefty part of me just can't quite get in rythym to accomplish any of these "projects", which include laundry.

Turns out dropping the laundry in the basement doesn't mean it gets done. The piles don't wash themselves. You'd think they'd know the routine by now.

So I'll leave you with a few pictures of the two window projects I actually did get done in my whirlwind nesting...

The kitchen with fabric from Joanne's.



For the one I made for the bathroom I actually ended up using quilting fabric which is half the price but still turned out really nice, considering it was more for looks than for actual purpose. If you really are wanting to block a lot of light, quilting fabric I think, would be too thin.

and for the record: I am still pregnant. Real pregnant. The grumpy, grouchy pregnant. Cupcakes aren't cutting it at this point. I've started all the tricks. Turns out I completely forgot that my due date is August 4th, not the 6th {yeah, I know...who forgets...but you see they bumped it up three times and I ultimately forgot the last change. Basically, that means that I've miscalculated my weeks, so today is my 39 weeks making next Tuesday my official due date.} I'm now spending my days trying to convince my sweet pea pod that the real world is way more of a thrill than the womb world he currently calls home. He's not listening to me, and hoping that's not a trend he continues once born.

I even tried gardening with JR, planting the juniper that mom bought us. Didn't work...

Aw, bless your heart, Nat!

I am thinking of ya'll and praying that little Hudson is going to make his appearance ASAP.

And, heads up, eggplant parmigiana did NOT work for me, so don't waste your time (or your mother's) cooking it ;)

The window treatments are just beautiful. Great job. I would love to be able to do something like that but Instead I just go buy stuff. No fun!
