{a few last projects for us}

if isaac doesn't get here too terribly early, i have a few more projects i would like to get done over here. we never really know, though. our timeline is totally wacky right now. the 37 weeks could end up being 38 weeks. or 39, because of his {good} growth spurt. but the contractions i'm starting to have could also mean not quite 37 weeks. & a number of things in between.

so maybe this is our last weekend without coleman number three. but maybe we'll have four more weekends like this, too.

this week has been all about interviewing pediatricians, finally putting together some kind of birthing plan, phone numbers, packing lists. & today is all about wintertime laundry & packing a hospital bag.

it seems much too early for that, but i guess better too early than be running around the house trying to pull things together later.

so in the meantime, there are a few more things we'd like to do around the house if we can.

one of my fun projects is to make fun looking dish rags.
all of ours are about as nice looking as our old pot holders. too many wiped up spills, i guess. & i'm ready to just toss them all & move onto something fresh & clean.
maybe just not pink.

a few others things to do {hopefully} will be:

-tidy up isaacs room//hang bookshelves, etc...
-insulate under our kitchen {we had our first taste of fall weather & our feets are already freeing. i had forgotten what it was like…}
-maybe find ii a crib. just maybe.
-finish organising our office {the most never-ending project EVER}
-& freeze up a bunch of meals to make things a bit easier on ourselves for awhile. its going to be a crazy couple of months, i think. but i can't wait…

so, did this taste of fall visit anyone else around here, or was that just in the carolinas? we are loving it so much. as long as it doesn't get TOO cold…


  1. Those dish rags are adorable! :)

    Yesterday and today have been very fallish in Virginia. I love it, but unfortunately next week is supposed to be in the 80s again.


  2. I'm so excited for you guys! I know you can't wait to meet Isaac! I hope you can finish a few of these projects!

  3. Really enjoying your blog! Very exciting time you and your husband are entering into! Good luck with the projects and enjoy the last few days/weeks of being just the 2 of you :)
    Much love, Bailey from Vanilla Blonde

  4. So happy and excited it is getting close. I'm still praying for a healthy mom and baby! :) Hope you are able to get everything done that you hope to before your little boy gets here!
