It's been a busy week. My Nana has been in the hospital for over a week now after she got reconstructive knee surgery. But, there were complications during her recovery with her medications, which caused irregular heartbeat and her kidneys to stop working well and her. She is doing better, and will hopefully be moved back to rehab this weekend. Ellie and I have visited her as often as we can. I've also been more trying to get things done before the baby arrives. I created Instagram posters using Prinstgram and chose to print them via pdf files (no charge). I also uploaded an album to mpix (my favorite go-to for ordering prints) and made a large order to update pictures in our home from the past few months. We are also doing a three-day potty boot camp with Ellie this weekend so we've been preparing her and ourselves for this process. It's intense and strict, but hopefully will be worth it!

Since I'll be the designated person with Ellie this weekend I have a few projects for my husband to complete. Oh, and we attempted to hang the wallpaper last night and it failed! I was able to smooth it out using my palm to avoid the air bubbles, but because the way the wall is configured it was impossible for us to evenly apply it adjacent to the wall. After getting frustrated with it (and each other) we decided to hire someone to do it for us. So, it will be hung next week. I can't wait to see it- I loved what it was looking like! Unfortunately, neither of us took a picture before taking it down.

My husband will be taking advantage of the nice weather and completing lots of spray painting projects for me. We will also be either ordering the crib or picking it up this weekend. I am deciding between this one on Amazon or the Gulliver at Ikea. I will order the crib mattress on Amazon. 

Spray Painting Projects:
  • Chandelier
  • Plastic chairs (purchased for 25 cents each at a yard sale): for Ellie's playroom
  • Frames
  • Ellie's ceramic dog
  • Door hardware
I hope this weekend is a successful one in both checking off my to-do list and in Ellie's potty boot camp!
