It is done

I just have to do a quick post to let everyone know, as I know you have all been wondering... I have finished all the painting!!! The basement is all done, I finally painted and put on the knobs to the bedroom closet doors, and I even broke out some other colors this evening and walked around doing touchups everywhere that needed it. It is amazing the difference that a fresh coat of paint makes in a room. I know there probably isn't a single person out there (not even Nate!) who cares, but I do, and it has been on my "To Do" list for ages, and now I can check it all off. Yay for me!!

**Note** The office is still not painted, nor will it ever be, unless Nate decides that he wants it to be!! I might give in and do the doors, just because they look so nasty, but other than that, it's all him! The front door still needs some help, but it really needs some serious help, as in scraping off all the paint and starting from scratch, so I don't think I will even attempt it at this point in time.

Are you nesting??? Good job painting 9 months pregnant! I just read your baby news post and I can't believe you are a 3 and so efaced! YOu are for sure having your baby before me (I'm due on Mar 2nd). I went to the Dr on Monday and he says, "you're almost a 2." JUst say 1 ok! I can take it! I think he was trying to make me feel hopeful???

Thats great Morgs. I cant wait until I finally have a place of our own and I can actually paint. But um, arent you supposed to be on bed rest?
I get to go try again today to see what we are having! I am so nervous that we wont find out. Wish me luck.

Hats off to you! I have so much painting to do in our downstairs and I continue to put it off, ridiculous I know... As if it's going to happen with 2 kids!! Oh well, someday!

Congrats!! That is so awesome. There is nothing more satisfying than being able to check something off your to do list...especially something as big as this!

Jillian said...

Nesting for sure!!!
Paint does make such a difference! I want to see pictures. I just painted my bathroom and got some accessories, etc. and am so happy about it!

So you will have this baby anytime? From your stories of Asher, it sounds like he will be a great older brother - and you will continue to be a great mama!

I can't believe you thought of my birthday! It must be something about the date - something that made it stick in your brain - how funny. Thanks for thinking of me!

By the way, that cake you made looks amazing! Is that your pic or the website's? Yours right?
I love epicurious too!

Good luck in labor if I don't talk to you sooner! You will do great!

There is just something so satisfying about checking something off of your list- especially one that was so big and took so long. I care, and I am so proud of you. It is so funny how many times I think "if you want something to get done, you have to do it yourself." At least some things. Connor does an amazing job of helping me, but sometimes...

CONGRATULATIONS!! I am seriously glad that you kept us posted on this since you have been writing and posting pictures all along the way!
A few notes:
A) I am pretty jealous that you completed an ENTIRE Project and i can't even manage to finish laundry for the week.
B)I am even MORE jealous that you have walls that you OWN and can choose to paint whatever colors you want to...
Hey, final thought...are you guys going to join up for the Memorial Day Camp-a-Thon this year?? I am thinking about going and would love to see you!

Nate, Morgan and Asher said...
