Recent Projects

Well for starters, I started work today!!! It feels ridiculous, but I have never been more happy to start a minimum wage paying job. I think it will be really fun though. It will feel good to have a paycheck again and a consistant schedule. Today was just two hours of training and paperwork, but I got paid for it. :)

Other news is all of the projects I have been working on around the house in all my spare time. I have found I really enjoy interior decorating and especially being creative on a tiny budget. Below is the painting I did above our sink in the kitchen. It matches the tablecloth and runner I bought.
For Valentine's Day one of the things I got Soren was new sheets for our bed. He LOVES high thread count sheets and I really wanted white sheets. Unfortunately those are the sheets that never go on sale so when I found some 1000 thread counts on sale, I was really excited. I bought them and hid them for a few weeks until Valentine's Day. On Thursday I bought paint for our room and surprised Soren by painting the whole room and putting on new sheets in one day. It was a LOT of work, especially on my prego back. But I am super happy with how it turned out. Soren helped me put up curtains on Saturday.



Don't mind the exercise machine. Its basically a bike for your arms that we got for free. Its like the perfect machine for Soren's damaged shoulders. It's an eyesore, but we have no where else to put it. :)


Below are the flowers I recently put up in our living room. They are fake, but actually look pretty real.



Those are all my projects. The baby's room is next so I'll keep you posted.

Speaking of baby, I started my third trimester yesterday and what is insane is that I definitely feel like it. My back has started to bug me a lot in just the last few days. Its bearable, but a far cry from feeling totally normal. 12 weeks to go. :)

You are so talented. Way to go. Good luck with the back discomfort. I wish I had found some wonderful treatment for that pain but labor is the only thing...

How fun! I've discovered the same love of interior decorating, but I don't have the same courage to paint the walls. Your home looks so cute! I love the flowers. Way to keep busy! I'm trying to make more projects for myself since I haven't found a job yet :)
