A "Honey-Do" Weekend

Do you ever write lists for your hubby? I do. And I really put him to work this weekend...but he took it like a champ...and he got it all done! Love him for being patient with me!

Don't worry...I didn't just sit on my butt while he worked. I worked my pregnant booty off too! But...verrrry carefully. It just takes me a lot longer to do anything, now! 

We are in the process of trying to finish our basement, converting D's bedroom into a "Big Boy Room", cleaning out closets, organizing, doing little DIY projects, and turning our guest bedroom into a nursery for Baby Girl (no name yet - but THANK YOU for all the suggestions...we are working on it!!).

Lots to do around these parts. We still have a ways to go...but it's coming along! Just 3 months and counting until Baby Girl gets here! EEEEEEK!

We painted it...PINK! Which I SWORE up and down I would never do if I had a girl. But I couldn't find a good neutral color I liked..and I just fell in love with it. So sue me. A pink girls room - I know - suuuuuper original, eh? Hehe.

One wall I'm painting with dark grey chalk paint. It's not finished yet (it needs a lot of coats)...but I pretty much L O V E it so far!!

Davis is such a good helper...really...he colors on the newly painted walls with his crayons and everything! ;) Gotta love a two year old!

I finished my "Project Yarn Lamp" (that's the official name dontcha know?) and I love it too! I spray painted an old lamp gold, and then wrapped..and wrapped..and wrapped pink yarn around the lampshade.

Ya ya I know, more pink! I promise there will be other colors in there when it's done!

I spent the majority of my Sunday cleaning out the Guest Bedroom closet (now the nursery closet). That was our Winter/Summer clothes closet...so I had to give away about 7 bags of clothes to GoodWill. I mean...SEVEN BAGS of our old clothes. It feels so dang good to CLEAN!

There's still half of the closet filled with my clothes (which will soon be in our finished basement)..but it's a start. At least I can hang up some of her clothes now! YAY!

She's gonna take after her Mom and fill that closet up quick..I can just tell!

Ty spent his Sunday putting together D's new bed. Good man! We still need to repaint, reorganize, get some new accessories, a night stand, etc...but it's coming along!

He just loves sleeping in his new bed - and sleeps in there like a champ - I am so so soooooo grateful for that! He has only climbed out twice!! Gotta give him big props for that!

Then, I spent the rest of my weekend cleaning, organizing and giving away lots and lots of clothes & accessories that I don't want anymore. I had to take a pic of all the bags we filled up. YAY FOR ORGANIZING!!!! Makes my heart so happy. I'm weird, I know.

We are getting there....and I will do a post when everything is all done!!
