Yes, there is still a bun in my oven. My disappearance is due to "nesting" vs. a new little babe in our home.
And equally exciting, okay not equally, but still exciting, is that there is now a working oven back in the mommycoddle kitchen! It has been so long that when I sat down this morning to plan meals for the week, I couldn't think of anything that didn't require only the use of the stovetop. I'm definitely out of practice.
I am very close to being able to utter those three little words : "I Am Ready". But there is still a short list of things that I'd like to accomplish before the baby arrives.
In a last minute burst of enthusiasm and inspiration, Dan and I are talking about painting the old baby crib versus using one that was given to us. Thumbing through old issues of Martha Stewart baby can be a very dangerous thing when you are nesting.
I truly mourn the loss of MS Baby and Kids. They were full of so much inspiration. These are a few clipped pages from and old MS Baby. And two are the nursery style that has always been in the back of my mind as I decorate and prepare my baby's rooms. Timeless. Simple. Peaceful.
Hope your Monday is full of inspiration and sun, as it is here. Spring must be around the corner — my yard is littered with bicycles, skateboards and chalk. And the chickens are doing a good job of scratching through my dormant flower beds.
Happy Monday, friends.
