cribbuilding

i can't be sure, but i think i might've just spent the weekend nesting.
it started saturday morning, where all weekends start. but instead of cold cereal and toast, on a whim i decided on scrambled eggs and smoothies. a small spontaneous decision, but i think it might've been important. because from there saturday snowballed.

i was up at the sink doing the breakfast dishes when i decided to make bread. i was making bread when i decided to do some laundry. i was doing laundry when i decided to scrub the sink with baking soda. and soon enough, i was working my way through a whole list of little things that i've been meaning to get at for who knows how long. wiping cupboard doors, scrubbing the stove top, taking down that garland that's been up since christmas, sweeping the bathroom floor, planting my basil seeds, putting new bedding on our bed, wiping walls (seriously), vacuuming upstairs, getting sticky spots off the kitchen floor, rearranging random stuff that collects on my counters, and finally getting at those cobwebs that have been bothering me (actually grant had to reach those for me). and while i was up and down our house with my impulsive cleaning missions, grant was putting up crown molding in the baby's room. together we made a pretty productive team.

the rest of the weekend was spent filling in nail holes, making paint touch-ups, and putting together our crib (yaaaaay!) and jogging stroller (a pretty complex gadget). there was no nap. no movie night. no computer. (although we did have the nfl draft streaming in the background.) it was all good, clean work. and weirdly enough, i'm not ready to drop today. where did the energy come from? it must be baby magic.

speaking of baby magic, have you read psalm 139 lately? amazing. my plan is to spend the next weeks thinking on it. happy monday! let's have an awesome week. only a few to go until baby time!

Christina said...

Yep. You're definitely nesting all right! I'm just waiting for it to kick into gear for me to make the now-daunting task of cleaning our room and getting the nursery-nook ready seem possible. : )

We have that crib and love it. Love that room with the angled ceilings. Very pretty. You are looking super cute too!

We built our crib this weekend too! Makes things feel so much closer!

Look how cute you guys are! And I am a bit in love with your slanty ceilings. I always wanted a room like that when I was little. :)

saw that some other people mentioned your crib, but i can't help saying how much we've liked it... baby #3 is still in it- but we're gearing up for switching it for baby #4 (july!). for being so reasonable in price, i've been so happy with how it has held up. we were supposed to use the money we got for our first for mainly the crib, but we used it for a crib, dresser and chair. so worth it! :) - and i'd say that you took advantage of the healthy energy burst quite well. go harms team!

We've got the Gulliver crib as well and love it! Been in use for 14 months so far and am getting excited to turn it into a toddler bed someday. Hope you love it as much as we do!

Miranda said...

Ha! Too funny. You are certainly right about the nesting. The crib is lovely as is the sparsely furnished room. Of course you are lovely too. :)
