Just a Little Update

I am so bad! I haven't posted for so long and I promised myself in the beginning that if I was going to do this, I was going to do it right . . . but I'm already slacking! It has been a busy month! I have gotten so many things accomplished, but feel like I still have so much more to do before Ellie gets here!
I love making lists. They make me feel so accomplished when I can mark things off of them. When I was little, I hated lists, because my Mom so often left them for me while she was gone at work and I was home in the summer. Now that I have my own house though, I understand why she loved leaving me lists and keeping them around for herself. Here are a few things that I was able to mark off my list for this month:
  • Paint Ellie's Room - Jimmy and Denny did a great job of painting her room. Originally, we planned to go with a light green. We decided to switch it out for a light tan . It turned out really good!
  • Paint the Trim in Ellie's Room - Most people probably think this should be part of "Paint Ellie's Room," but I tell you, it was such a job in its own! I painted all the trim in the room and the once-orange brick fireplace white. It took me about 4 nights to do just two coats! That is a lot of trim! (Not only is the trim on the bottoms of the walls and around the doors, but Ellie's room also has a double window, two stained glass windows, trim above the fireplace, and beautiful (awfully difficult to paint) french doors with glass panes. My favorite thing has to be the white brick fireplace though - it looks so AWESOME! :)
  • Pick out the "going home outfit" for Ellie to wear home from the hospital.
  • Clean out her dresser and armoire so it is ready for her clothes.
  • Pick up Beauty and the Beast to start Ellie's Disney movie collection. Jimmy thinks I am crazy to spend $25 on a movie, but my parents did it for me and I LOVED my Disney movies, so I am sure she will love them, too.
It may not seem like that is much, but trust me it has been such a busy month! I will have pictures soon to post of Luella's lovely bedroom. :) Can't wait to share! By the way, Sunday is the baby shower! Can't wait to see everyone!
