Operation: Baby is Coming

You guys, my house is like a construction zone.
Since we have t-minus 3 months till this little guy is born, I am implementing Operation: Baby Drop.

What is Operation: Baby Drop?  It is a list of all the things JEGs and I would like to have accomplished in the house before this little bambino turns our world upside down.  I'll even give you the room-by-room play.
Living Room

  •  replace subfloor
  •  carpet installed


What, you don't have lamps on your kitchen table?  Weirdo.

  •  remove living room furniture so we can eat at the table again
  •  add in office area to unused nook (see below)
  •  Bonus Points:  Prime and paint? (hardy har har)

Baby's Room

  •  paint
  • decorate
  • add furniture
  • get my dresser out of there and into the master bedroom
  • remove all the crumbling plaster in the closet and replace it with drywall
  • install Closet Maid (so help me jeebus, Closet Maid if you leave another ad in my comment section, I will be contacting you about giving me free stuff)

  •  fix the gap between the baseboards and floor.  I just imagine creepy crawlers coming out in the winter.  Ew. 

Guest Room

  •   ... I don't even want to talk about it.  *le sigh*


  • I was able to repaint the hallway, but I would love to have the woodwork repainted as well

Master Bedroom

  •  figure out if we are constructing a brand new closet, or hanging some bars  and a sheet in that cubby where the dresser is now.

So yeah.. not too much, right?   We can totally get this all done in less then three months, right guys?


Always & Forever,

Oh my goodness, we have so much catching up to do! I have been out of the blogging world because of lack of inspiration in my boring apartment, but now we are buying a house.... And you are pregnant!!! Congratulations! So happy for you and JEGs. Even if it wasn't planned, I know you two will be fabulous parents. I'm going to be checking your blog often again! Congrats on the new house, too!

Oh Lawdy, do I feel your pain, LB!! The never ending list just keeps growing....and that's even before we get to pulling the nursery together. I keep referring to life as "Before Baby" or "After Baby".

We have to keep each other motivated, mmmkay? Because there's nothing hawter than a couple of preggo chicks doing home improvement.
