One Weekend Off

I finally had a weekend off! Mark and I quickly decided that this weekend would be less about relaxing and more about scrambling to tie up loose ends around the house. First project...tiling the guest bathroom. To those of you that had to use the disgusting mess we called a guest bathroom, I am eternally sorry. The bathroom looked like it had never been cleaned (for the record, I had scrubbed multiple times and the mold/mildew and stains were not coming off).

Both pictures are before...

We will have the tub refinished in the next few weeks. Then we will paint the walls and the cabinets and change the faucet on the sink so that Chloe can have a cute, clean bathroom to primp in (don't tell her dad that I said primp).

My handsome hubby hard at work...

My projects were a little easier this weekend. I spent the entire time deep cleaning and doing laundry. I also bought a few storage pieces for Chloe's room and tried to finish hanging the decorations. I still have a little left to do but I'm going to try and wait for the shower to be over so that I know what I'm working with as far as organizing goes. We have 9 weeks left and we are so ready to hold her!

I'm going to take a moment now to rave about my awesome husband! I could not have asked for a better partner through all of this! Without being asked, he has helped pick up around the house, cook, clean, and do laundry. He has been getting the projects that I deem urgent completed so that when Chloe gets here we can spend time with her instead of working around the house. I can't think of single time that he has complained about any of it. Except yesterday when he had to use the tile saw in the cold weather. It's never fun to be wet and cold. I'm sure that in his nightmares he hears me say, "Babe, can you do me a favor?" His answer is always, "Anything for you." What a great guy with amazing hubby skills! I can't wait to see him use his daddy skills.
Lastly, we went to the lake for a bit today. It was pretty cold today but that didn't stop Clyde from jetting out into the cold lake. What a goofball!


  1. Mark is now a master craftsman. The tile looks so good. I know he is so proud!

    I love the book shelf in Chloe's room and the bubble mirrors too.

    Clyde is a goofball. I'll be the fabulous Miss Pepper Ann knew not to get her paws wet. She was probably thinking "dumb boy". :)

    Belly is looking good. Chloe is taking up a lot of room.

  2. Kim, you look so happy and proud of your lover who likes to keep you smiling. you don't look like Chole is getting very big. What a fun weekend you had and let Mark out of the bathroom for a few hours. The nursery is so pretty too. I'll be glad when June gets here so I can pay you a visit. Enjoyed your phone call last night. Thanks for being so thoughtful. I love you and like the shower invitation.

  3. Your house is beautiful, I wish Noah was handy! Thanks for your sweet comment, we are so excited! I stole your pregnancy countdown ticker, I hope you don't mind. I just wish my numbers matched yours; I was ready yesterday to meet our child!
    You are looking just great, and can't wait to see pictures of her soon! Praying for a fast & easy delivery!
