LOVE a long weekend!

Especially one where we don't go anywhere. Or have any plans. We didn't even get together with either fam this weekend! Everyone was visiting family further away so Darin and I had a nice Easter pot roast and a nap. It was wonderful. =) We did get a few things done, though.. thought I would share.


Finished up a page on Thursday night.

It was nice to do a pre-pregnancy page. I'm feeling rather fluffy so scrapping a "normal" pic of myself was good. Makes me motivated to get back to that after the baby is here. And ready to grow out my hair again. =/ ANYWHO, just a page about some of the things I worry about. And then I remember that I'm blessed beyond measure. Yep. Then I do a self kick in the hiney and trust again. Journaling reads:

Sometimes I worry if I will be a good mom.
Sometimes I worry too much about what I eat.
Sometimes I wonder if our house will ever be finished.
Sometimes I wonder what life would be like with mom here.
Sometimes I get anxious about where Darin's ministry will take us.
Sometimes I worry about our finances when I become a stay-at-home mom.
Sometimes I take my life for granted and worries and apprehensions overcome me.
And then I realize that God has blessed me beyond measure. And I trust again.

Totally inked the raw chipboard and love the way it turned out. Put two coats on it to make it darker.



Oh yes.. it's a good feeling to not have that over my head. BUT, I thought I was finished on Friday and then I made two more pillows yesterday. And I will probably cover the changing pad when I get it. And possibly the glider chair's cushions if we get it off our registry. So yeah, I'm *kinda* finished with the sewing. =/ Can you say "nesting"? And proud of it!

And yeah, it's all in a pile because the crib isn't finished yet. And all my scrap stuff is in the nursery. Sooo... once the crib gets in the room and my scrap stuff is retired to the basement, I'll show you the end result of the room. the pile includes the comforter, bumper pads (with the ribbons... ribbons in case it's a girl and blue ribbons in case it's a boy! Like my reasoning?), 2 window valances, 2 pillows and a crib skirt.


And... we live in a glass house!

Yeah, we have a LARGE sliding glass door in our kitchen! 12 feet to be exact! This house didn't have a back door. Yeah, strange. Guess back doors weren't a necessity in the 50's??? So we got the sliding glass door.. it was one of the freebies from the soon-to-be demolished lake house. Can't even DREAM about plowing through a gorgeous window like that. And we have the custom window covering for it too. They were gunna trash the window treatments too. Crazy people out there, I tell you! Darin and I aren't too proud to pluck windows out of houses. =) No sur-ee. Specially when they look like that!

And ignore the trash in our back yard from putting in the window. Poor Darin put the window in on Saturday when it was like 30 degrees and snowing. I don't blame him for not totally cleaning up!


And I was busy growing a baby too.

Yep, getting huge. We were 32 weeks on Friday. Erin always tells me that I look like a graduate with that wall hanging behind my head. Yeah, I probably should take the pictures elsewhere but that's where I started taking the pics and I've got a page worked up in my head. You know, priorities. =)

WHOO this baby is going to be here before we know it!! Now baby H and I will have a big ol' window to look out and get to the backyard if our heart desires! CAN'T WAIT!

Wow Darcy- you were so tiny at the start we could hardly see you were pregnant but Baby H is now making it's presence felt. Do you have any feelings about what you're having? I think a boy! :) Or maybe a girl. From what I've read of you I can tell that you're going to be a GREAT mum! And Darin a great dad too. God bless in these last 2 months! (or so!)
love Beck in Aus! :)
