Nursery Decor with a Hula Hoop!

I’ve been a little lazy on the blogging lately… actually a little lazy with a lot of things.  I had a nesting spurt go on for like 2 weeks, but the last few weeks, I’ve started to feel like I’m in first trimester again and all I want to do is nap and relax. ::yawn::

It also doesn’t help that we recently came across a small patch of mold on one of our basement walls and are trying to decide what to do.  So we’ve had contractors in and out of the house for the past few weeks. Sigh.  More on that soon.

But I need to really just enjoy some “free time” right now before things get busy with TWO little ones.  The nursery has been done for a little while, but I was dragging my feet on this little DIY project and also of taking pictures of the room.  BUT!  The time has come.  First I want to talk a little about this over the crib decor, and then next week we’ll reveal baby girl’s room!

Excuse My French… Drain

We’ve had a water problem for awhile, and we’ve known about it since we bought the house.  We talked about it a bit in this project goal post HERE. Now, I know water problems scare people away, as it almost did us. BUT, we knew we could probably get a handle on these.

The driveway to our home leads up to our garages, which are technically in the basement since we’re on such a hill in our neighborhood.  To the left of the garages, next to the stairway, is a wall that basically holds in the dirt/landscaping on the first floor level of our home.  The builders of this home in the 90s had a a major flaw in this design that took awhile for it to come to light.

Whatchu know about CSAs?

CSAs have been a big part of our “food shopping” for about 5 years now.  If you’re not familiar with the term, CSA, it stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.”  You can read more about it HERE, but basically, it is a program that is run either through farms or a cooperative of farms that gather fresh, local produce and food from small farms and provide it to their CSA members every week.  The CSA member pays up front every season to the farmer or co-op to provide funds for seeds, planting supplies, and other needs to grow your food.  It’s a win-win, but could also possibly be a risk, as you accept the fact that if the farms have a bad weather season for the crops, you may not get as much produce and/or food.

Nursery 2.0 Plans

I’m so excited to be working on a nursery with some girly touches!  I mean, I absolutely LOVE Connor’s room, but this one lets me add in some touches of floral 🙂

For Connor’s room, we went with an adventure/navy blue theme.  I wanted something that was basic enough that he could grow up with for the next few years and not have to make any major changes.  That’s our goal for baby girl’s room too!  If you want to check out some more details on Connor’s room, you can read about the plan HERE and the execution HERE.  Here’s a reminder…

2018 Home Goals

So, it’s not a big deal that we’re starting our 2018 goals in mid-April, and are kind of considering the end of the year in August, right?  I mean, after #BabyHam2018 arrives in August, it’ll be kind of crazy, and then next thing you know, it’ll be Thanksgiving and Christmas… essentially no time for major house projects.

So without further ado, here are our goals for things to finish this “year.”  Please, hold us accountable hahaha.

Our Next Big Project!

We’ve been working on this one in the background lately, hence the radio silence, and decided it’s finally time to share a bit about it!

These shelves are looking pretty spicy.

Did that corny title grab your attention to this blog post?  I thought so.  😀

After we finished taking the wall down between our living room and family room, to make one big room, I had my eyes set upon the kitchen.  We have lived here for a little over 2 years now and we have a pretty good idea of what we really want and need for our future kitchen renovation.

Remember, we wanted to go from this:

Built in Cabinet Shopping

Last week we talked about our plans for the new built ins in the family room, and how I’ve been dreamily staring at this picture…

and trying to figure out how to turn it into this picture…

I eventually got here, with the help if the Ikea kitchen planner tool.

Planning the Family Room Built Ins!

Ahhhhh. Built ins.  I’ve been looking forward to doing a project like this. It’s the perfect way to make your home look more customized and also increase the value. I’ve been dreaming of built ins in our living room since we moved in.  I knew it would be the perfect thing to add to the long, empty wall in the family room once the wall came down.
