Scrabble Anyone

So, I have had this idea for a scrabble board art work for a few months now. Its close to being done. There are some other finishing touches I want to do. But I am so excited I wanted to go ahead and post a picture. It is centered around the upcoming arrival of OWEN HAMPTON.

Oh boy the baby stuff

Things are starting to come together.
This weekend Jon and I went to our very first consignment sale together. And that will be the last sale Jon will EVER go to. He was just in a hurry to get out of there and was more a pain in the ass then the brawn I wanted. But I feel we scored. We bought a swing, a pack and play, a baby carrier, a little gym and a small breast pump. All for $110.
We then went to spend the day with his mother for her birthday. That day we went to Burlington to look at baby stuff and I bought some maternity tops. We then went to Babys R Us where we pretty much finished all the big baby stuff needs. We have the crib and changing table. The bedding, with mobile and window valance. The car seat, stroller and bouncy seat is also taken care of.
I know what colors I want to paint in the room, just need to figure out the little details.

OH to be a designer

Sometime it's hard for me to be a designer. It's always a guessing game in my head. I love design. I love color. I love paint. I love fabric. But it's so frustrating when dealing with my own space. I can never make a decision. I second guess all my decisions. I can never just let it be.
I want my baby boy's room to be awesome. And I just keep thinking it will turn out blah. But then I know that it's really not important. He will not know the difference whether the walls are white, pink or a time consuming jungle mural room. The only thing that matters is that I take care of him and love him with all my heart.

I just need to keep reminding myself of that.

22 weeks

Last week was week 22. Jon and I had to go into a genetic specialist to see if the cyst had gone away. It has. I wasn't worried. Thank God.
We finally settled on a name (i think). We have decided on Owen. Not common or "traditional" but not unique and weird. You see it and know exactly how to pronounce it and spell it. Which is something important to me.

Here is a picture of our little guy.
Well I am not sure how "little" he is.
At 22 weeks he is supposed to be a little under 1lb
And the Ultrasound tech says they estimate him to be:
1lb 4oz. Yes, its an estimate but maybe this is a sign of a big baby.

Housewife for hire

Wanted: Housewife

Position available for woman no longer wanting to work outside the home. Duties include doing dishes daily, sweeping, mopping and vacuuming floors. Washing and folding clothes never ends. Cleaning toilets is to be done weekly. Grocery shopping on a strict budget from a one income family is a must. Dusting, making beds, scrubbing tubs, wiping down counters, preparing meals and picking up endless clutter are also to be expected. There are no kids, so you are not expected to be a nanny. But there is no extra money to go shopping and window shopping will be too tempting, so it is not suggested.
When those duties are done or your bored of that you can bring excitement to your life with talk shows, soap operas and the same old websites.
The first week or two will be great but this position is needed indefinitely, and anyone who doesn't desire to be bored and feel useless should not reply.

If you are working and this sounds like the life for you please contact me immediately and we can switch shoes. Because wearing a house coat and slippers all day is NOT the life for me.
