And we're baaaack! Vacation was wonderful and refreshing. We spent the whole week just laying around on the beach and soaking up some much-needed Vitamin D. But, now we're back to life—back to reality. I'm currently in my 3rd trimester (34 weeks tomorrow), and getting anxious to push this baby out! There's just not enough room for both of us anymore. :) But, I guess we've got just a little more time to go. Extreme nesting has kicked in, too. I'm feeling a STRONG desire for our kitchen to be totally completed, have our cloth diapers refreshed, get some pictures hung on the walls, and paint the nursery (which is currently lavender--from the previous owners; just won't work for a baby boy and toddler girl sharing a room). One of my latest nesting desires is to dig out a nice big green glass bottle from our garage (it's in there somewhere), and turn it into a living room lamp. Since I already have the bottle, and lamp kits aren't at all expensive, this little project shouldn't cost very much. I'll keep you posted! Now, on to the main event...
