Catching Up

Hello everyone,
 I haven't posted in a few weeks. There hasn't really been a lot going on so I will just put everything from the past few weeks into this one post.
First of all, on Feb 7th, I had the most amazing baby shower. I have some pretty amazing people in my life that made sure that Baby E feels the love already. I snapped a few pictures from the shower, but they definitely do not do it justice.

 I also took a few pictures of some stuff that my Mom made. She is very talented with her crochet hook. I am so amazed by her talent!

After the shower, of course, it was time to start getting the nursery ready for baby. I still have so much more I need to do in the 5 short weeks before he gets here, but I think we have done quite a bit considering how it looked before.
I also decided to make Thank You cards for all of the wonderful things we received from our shower. I don't havve a picture of the finished product yet. I still have another shower coming up. Once I finish those I will do a more detailed post. I am doing quite a bit of DIY projects lately so I will just do one post on all of them.

We have also been getting quite a bit of snow lately, as most of you know. But, with it being so cold we haven't really had a chance to go outside and play. We finally had a day that was reasonable enough that we could go outside for a few minutes. S has never really played in the snow before. She was afraid of it last year and she was too young the year before. I had a feeling she would really enjoy it. And thanks to Frozen, she's been asking to build a snow man for 3 days.
Anyway, sorry for the long post and overload of photos. I hope to be able to stay on top of this more. Especially in the coming weeks since we will be going into full baby prep mode.
Thanks for taking the time to read about our life!

Kitchen Organization

Hey again!
 I decided this week I would make a post about my kitchen. It is probably my favorite room of the house, but also the most neglected. We bought our house almost 3 years ago. At the time I was a month away from giving birth. We pretty much decided that as long as everything was put away, that was good enough for us. As I am about to give birth again, I have a slight advantage this time. We aren't moving- so I am able to nest my little heart out. I decided I would start in the kitchen and I am so glad I did! I'm not sure how long things will stay where they are. But it's definitely a good starting point. Below are a few before and after shots of the cabinets. Feel free to share any helpful tips you have. Or any organization you have been recently doing.
Thanks for reading!
