The Sunday Post #84: Makeover Time



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ Its a chance to share news ~ A Post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

This week my husband and I had the week off from work. And it was a very busy week since we are doing a makeover for our future baby room. When we first thought of what we wanted to do in the room, it didn’t seem like so much. But boy where we wrong! We had to choose and buy a new floor. We had to get paint for the walls, windows and doors. And then we had to lay down the floor and paint everything. In the meanwhile we also spend a day in baby stores to get the furniture for our baby. It was hard work.. but we managed to do everything in a week, and I’m happy to say we are almost done. The furniture is coming in May, but the room is so far ready that we finally have room to put the baby stuff in. It was a busy week, but we’re so happy to be done with the biggest part of the baby room. 

Other than building, painting and shopping, we found out our baby is a girl. A baby girl!! We are so excited and I just can’t wait for it to be August. Now we are busy thinking of a name. Thankfully we finally made some progress there. Which was a surprise because we didn’t seem to like the same kind of names at all.  

On Thursday it was my husband’s birthday, and we spend the day doing what he wanted.. finishing the baby room and enjoying some nice food. It was a perfect day, and we celebrated just the way he liked it.. low key and with just the two of us. 

And now the week is almost over and it’s time to go back to work. I didn’t read and blog as much as I wanted, since I was pretty tired at night, but I did read a little. And that is saying much since I’ve had trouble reading for the last view weeks.  

How was your week? Did you read any good new books?

  6. Oh how exciting! I loved finding out the sex of my baby. I don't know why but it made it feel even more real somehow, like this isn't 'just' a baby. It's a boy!
    Good luck on choosing names. August will be here before you know it!

  9. Congrats!

    Wow at getting all of that done in a week! That's impressive.

    The name thing will happen. We struggled with both of my kids. My son didn't even have a name until I was 7 or 8 months along, and even then it was only because we thought I was going into early labor. (We went with our daughter's choice.)
