Vacation!?!?!

Ryan is out of town for a few days, and I have a week's vacation. How's a gal to keep herself busy????


Girl's Weekend! Annie came to town and was a HUGE help in registering for the little lady. To be honest, I just followed her around and pointed the gun...I have no idea about these baby things yet....thank goodness she was here to help!

On Saturday night, Annie and I went to dinner with our college friend Amanda, who has the most beautiful 6 month old girl Taya. We had such a great time catching up. Plus I appreciated the brutal honesty about birth and the first few weeks of being a new mom....ok, maybe they were a little too honest and I'm freaked out now....Mom, can you move in with us please!?!?!


I've also been busy with a few projects while on "vacation"....

Ehlers helped me read all the directions prior to putting together the crib (yes Ryan, I swear I read them all and didn't skip any steps!!! I'm not known for having patience when it comes to projects....)

Oh so cute, I love it!!!!

I regrouted a few nasty tiles the Master bathroom

Before..............


Elhers helping me...............


After........


Then on a whim decided the bathroom trim, cabinets, and wainscotting needed a fresh coat of white paint!



Ehlers had surgery to guarantee Little Lady is the only "baby" around here, and as you can see, Lynnie is not nearly as helpful with the house projects! Bad dog, sneaking up on the coach (and typical of me to think it's cute and take a picture instead of yelling at her to get down....I'm afraid I know who the disciplinarian of our kids will be...not me!)
After all these projects, I think I now deserve a few days of retail therapy...good thing Ryan is out of town until Wednesday! :)

Sounds like you've been quite busy and I have to agree that you're nesting! The crib looks so cute all set up!! Thanks again for letting us stay last week--it was great seeing you guys and we really appreciated it (and supper was YUMMY)!!!:)

At first I was so sad I missed out on the girls' weekend, but after reading your post and knowing how amazingly and brutally honest our friends are, I'm glad I missed out on the pregnancy/new mom stories. Not sure I could handle them. Guess if it's ever my turn, you can pass along the wisdom to me. Hope you enjoyed your week off - way to be so productive! Bathroom looks amazing!!
