WIWW: Preggo Edition

Hey there! So I'm a day behind ... what else is new? :) Not many pictures to post for the last week -- had several days where I felt like crap and literally wore the same jammies for days.

And after looking at many of the posts last week for WIWW from fellow bloggers, I must say you guys are getting oober creative with your photos! You guys are starting to look more like models and less like us everyday folks. It's just little ol' me and my Evo, and you guys are getting fancy with outside photos and tripods. I'm jealous. Or envious. Or both? Makes me think I should Windex my bathroom mirror ... or at least move that pile of hangers. ;)

Forgotten Projects

I'd started several projects pre-preggo. Then, when the intense tiredness hit, they all got set aside and left for a rainy day. Well, we've had oodles of rainy days and they're still sitting! But, I'm hoping to get them finished -- and get the house {remotely} organized -- before baby arrives in early July.

Like, organizing our closet...

Painting the laundry room...

Finishing the picture wall upstairs...

Installing the knobs I bought for the guest bathroom...

Finally doing something with the old cabinet door I bought at the Habitat Restore forever ago {Hey, at least I primed it! Something for the baby room, perhaps?}...

And finishing re-vamping my Granddad's old lamp...

Not to mention everything we need to do to get baby's room ready...

Guess that would be priority numero uno? :)

WIWW: Preggo Edition

WIWW is back! And this week I've been feeling uber preggo. It's hard to tell in these photos, but I love that my belly is finally taking shape. I'm starting to look less like I ate too many nachos and more like I'm growing a baby -- and at 15.5 weeks, that's a good thing!

Many thanks to my awesome friend Brit for letting me borrow some of her maternity clothes. Will really help to stretch my wardrobe -- and dollar -- farther. And, it helps that I got several maternity store giftcards for Christmas! :)

{Oh, and I forgot to post last week, so there's a couple of extra days ... making up for the days I missed this week!}

Wish List: Poppy Earrings

While it's snowing outside, I'm snuggled by the fire dreaming of warmer weather. Which is why I'm drooling over these lovely poppy earrings from Spotted Moth...

Is it too early to buy for spring? :)

Favorite Things Friday: 2010 Moments

Well, since I never posted what I was thankful for in 2010, or Christmas decorations and treats, or my New Year resolutions, I figured I'd post some of my favorite moments from last year. Like...

...the crazy Texas snow at the first of the year:

...snowboarding in Angel Fire & Taos:


...days on the lake in our boat:

...a weekend get-away to Galveston, complete with tar balls:

...celebrating our anniversary with a sunset sail:

...J's wine adventure, from hand-picked grapes to opening his first home-made bottle:

...exploring the west coast, from San Francisco into Oregon:

...and, the day we found out I was pregnant:

And after that, the rest of the year was a blur of holidays and morning sickness :). Of course, there were many other favorite moments -- from times with family and friends, celebrating new babies, and other moments not captured on film -- that I'll treasure as we move into 2011. I can only imagine what this year will bring!

Oh Baby!

I know, I know -- I've been MIA. But I have good reason! If you've been following my tweets, then you know ... I'm preggo!! And we are sooo uber excited, we're chomping at the bit to get started on the baby room and alllll it's many projects. But, I'm only 13.5 weeks so far, so we still have awhile before we find out what it is.

Now that I'm not struggling as much between sleep and work, hopefully I'll feel more up to blogging. Thought today would be perfect to share some of the baby room ideas I've collected so far. I'm really digging the blues and bright greens...

Excited for the journey ahead! :)
