And now, for your viewing pleasure, a never before seen photo of the total chaos that is our new house!
That there room is allegedly the office. Or will be someday soon, as soon as all of the office-type things are out of those boxes. I don’t care that it’s in a shambles. It’s ours and it’s a mess and I love it. We spent our first night in the house last night, so we are finally in the same place as all of our belongings and our very own bed, which is a feat in and of itself. There’s a mountain of work ahead of us, but I’m so excited to tackle it and get the place ready so we can settle in and wait for the little guy to get here. Follow along on Instagram for more house updates — the place has its own hashtag now, y’all. Check out #alovelyhomeindeed (and thanks to Kelly for the hashtag inspiration!).
This weekend my sweet sister is throwing me a baby shower, so I’ll be crossing my fingers that I still fit into the only appropriate dress I own for the occasion! Have you ever had a shower thrown for you? I always get so overwhelmed and shy — it just totally blows my mind that all of these people are willing to come together and help you set off on the next stage of life. It feels so overwhelmingly kind, ya know? And I feel so bashful about it all, I kind of get squirmy with all that attention and present opening and fussing. But it’s just so heartwarming and I’m so grateful for the people who are helping Baby Foy get a head start.
Whatever you’re up to this weekend, hope it’s a beautiful one! xoxo
This Week’s Faves
I want to make one of these for every room in the house.
If I didn’t already have the barcart of my dreams, I’d be all over this one.
Pretty sure if I got this I’d wear it on the daily this fall.
And these have no calories, right? So I can eat all of them?
You gotta make this for your kid… or yourself. College!
Can’t sleep. Bah.
Been thinking lots about the chemicals we have around the house, because of the little one!
Mr. Lovely’s world-famous Trader Joe’s pizza.
Get a jump on Halloween, ya weenies!
