We had such a productive weekend this weekend. It is a good feeling to get things accomplished.
First and foremost big thank you to my Dad who painted the nursery for us. He really is a master painter. He is so tall he can trim with no ladder and no tape and he paints fast! I went with Pratt and Lambert’s Quartz Moon for our color but halved the strength of it. It was my first instinct and my mom and sister both picked it in the blind test, so I had to trust my family. The color went best with the rest of what I envision in the nursery. I could not be more pleased it is the perfect purple gray. Here is a peek this is the first coat.
Another big thank you to my in-laws who gave us a King size bed. Our queen bed was always so cramped with the two of us and we both like our space sleeping. This literally changed our lives this weekend, I will never go back to a Queen Bed again. I still need a dust ruffle, duvet, and headboard but for now we are just happy we have a larger bed to accommodate our growing family. Sterling is already smitten with it and wanted to nap in our room.
Lately I have been obsessed with Thai and Vietnamese food. If you have any good recipes send them my way. My mom is equally addicted and every time she is in town we always pick up Vietnamese Tacos from Ban Bah Mi. If you have never been you must. The best tacos ever. Our favorites are the 5 spice pork and beef.
While mom was here we of course hit up an Estate Sale. Mom is so good at scouring these sales for amazing finds.
We have trained Sterling well at these sales, this is him patiently waiting to enter. He was not so patient inside especially when he found the toy room:)
I scored this abstract signed painting for practically nothing. I mean prices at Estate Sales are so good! It is hard to see but it is a cream and white abstract and we hung it in our bathroom.
Saturday was a pool and boat day. I may have fallen asleep on the boat, I have been so tired lately!
We did manage to see another amazing rainbow. We have had the best luck with rainbows this summer! As usual once the camera comes out Sterling does not cooperate.
I realized I have entirely too many book on my night table. Sad thing is I am reading them all.
Sunday I took Sterling to see Smurfs 2 while Matt went fishing with a buddy. I can not go to the movies and not order buttered popcorn and coke. It is so many calories but so worth it.
Lastly, I am 6 months along- although I still have a little less than 4 months til my due date. I forget you are really pregnant for almost 10 months and not 9.
I have been obsessed with the brand Riller and Fount for both my pregnancies. The dress I am wearing is by them and so comfortable. All their clothes are made out of the softest tee shirt material.
I leave you with this, my child has turned into a picky eater wanting peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for every meal.
