So – originally – when we got all our furniture from our house in VA after it sold – we had to rearrange the current “room usage” in our house.  We had planned to take down the twin daybed in our office and put our extra sofa in that room.  But it wouldn’t fit.  So we ended up having to flip our guest bed room and office.  

So the room is pretty basic.  Just a queen size bed and a dresser with a mirror.  And I had plans to spruce it up, accessorize and make it pretty.  But then those plans just went out the window…

My cat Faith can probably sum it up best. 


Yep – we are expecting!  And very excited!  I am 15 weeks along and due on July 5th.  If it appears that I am slower on responding to emails and writing posts, it has been because I am exhausted!  Plus I just got a promotion at work so I am juggling more at the office too!  But let me get that caught up and I will be back with you guys on my regular basis. 

So now … that guest room and the office will have to be consolidated.  And a nursery will have to be created!  I am super excited to start working on that.  We should find out what it is in the first two weeks of February – and I am ready to start planning and sharing with you guys soon!

Congratulations!! We are in the same exact boat as you -- had been procrastinating on doing something with the extra bedroom, but now we've got to get on turning it into a nursery. I'm 25 weeks and can't believe it's already this late. Best of luck to you!

Congratulations Jess! I've been wondering where you've been lately. Looks like you have your hands full, and in a very good way! I can't wait to follow you on this incredible journey. Congrats again.

Oh my goodness! I am so happy for you. What a great "problem" to have.
I totally get the exhausation thing. There is no exhausation like pregnancy exhausation. You sit down for one minute and find you can't possibly get up again!
Can't wait to get all the updates on your progress!
