I can't even describe to you how much I love it... I don't know if you remember, but I was never fond of that rental that we moved out of. Especially the color of the walls...and ceiling.... yuck. (if you care to refresh your memory, here's the post)
I feel like this house is a gift... a pure and wonderful gift. This past year has been very hard for me. Life has changed so much. We left our home and family, entered into full time ministry, moved to a new town, new church, new friends....
I would call myself an adventurous person, but for some reason this all was especially hard. And oddly enough, the "home" part was one of the toughest things for me to adjust to. I do everything at home. I'm kind of a homebody. I stay at home with my girls, home school, and have a home business... And I also happen to get a lot of enjoyment out of decorating the spaces I live in. It never felt comfortable...settled... at home in that rental.
But now God has given us the gift of a comfortable home. We were not expecting to buy a home here so quickly, but God lined up every single detail. It was nothing short of a miracle... sometime I'll share the story with you all in more detail. But for now... I'm just stating how incredibly grateful I am for this amazing gift. ...just in time for baby, too :)
Here's perhaps my favorite room... it's far from decorated, but it is functioning as my workspace/office. Check out the HUGE window.... love, love, love it. And it was already painted that wonderful aqua green color!!!! perfect.
The other room that is obviously getting alot of attention right now is the nursery. Baby boy Jordan is scheduled to arrive by c-section February 8... 2 weeks from today!!!! And this is what the nursery still looks like :( We painted the walls a cool gray color, but we are still working on the wood work. What a pain. JJ is still trying to figure out the best method for painting it...
I also wanted to show you what I'm thinking for bedding/and color scheme for the room. My mom-in-law is going to make the bumper pad , bed skirt, etc...
This is the bedding I would love to buy... but alas... I could never afford it!
Here's some fabric I found that I really love... I think I'll do the bumper pad out of the cars... with the orange polka dots on the inside... and the skirt the funky blue print.
Anywho... lots to do!!! I haven't even begun the other "normal" baby preparations.... wash clothes and bedding, get out car seat, set up cradle, pack bag.... I suppose it will get done eventually!
