An Exciting New Room Redo

Phew, it’s been a crazy few weeks…in a very good way!

I guess I should start by saying ‘Merry Christmas’ and ‘Happy New Year’ (cue streamers and those roll-out party horn thingos).

Now, I should explain my recent absence. I’ll blame it on the following ten factors….

1. Beautiful weather
2. Pure laziness
3. My parent’s beach house (which forced me to stay in it for a whole week!)
4. Over-eating
5. Over-sleeping
6. The baby in my belly
7. Family and friends (the non-virtual kind :-)
8. Pure laziness (again)
9. PC problems
10. Menial boringness

Okay, so did you notice the biggy I kinda slipped in there? If you’re a bit of a skimmer (like me :-) and missed it per-chance, then for a more obvious visual clue I’m excited to announce that the next of my room makeovers will be along these lines….

Due early July (both baby and nursery reveal!).

  15. Congratulations! The room from Decorpad makes me swoon it’s so pretty. Poor little Han Solo (due in late April, but trying to escape already) isn’t even going to get his own room. I don’t get to decorate a sweet little nursery. I’ll have to live vicariously through yours. Can’t wait to see what you do!

  16. Kristine, congrats! I cannot wait to see the beautiful nursery for your baby!

  17. Fabulous news…and no, I didn’t miss it! Good for you. Look forward to seeing the new baby AND the room reveal!

  18. Jackie says:

    Congratulations Kristine, how wonderful. Cant wait to see how you decorate the nursery.

  19. Ange says:

    Congratulations!!!!! I’m sure you both are so excited to start this new journey! I was just wondering where you’ve been lately and now, here you are! Excited to see the room but more excited for the arrival of a sweet baby! Take care!

  20. Melissa says:

    Congratulations! Baby’s are so much fun!! Have fun being pregnant, it can be yucky at times, but also so much fun!

  28. Wow, congratulation!! :)

  29. Elaine says:

    What??? Congratulations!!

  30. Yeah!!! I’m so happy for you! I can’t wait to see what you do in the baby room. I am currently due with No. 3 in May and I’m in the middle of redoing the room. So much fun (and work!). I understand the absense from blogging. I sat on the sofa the first four months of this pregnancy and did nothing! (well except be sick:-)
    Good luck!!

  31. L.A. says:

    Congratulations! So looking forward to the 2 big reveals! Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy :)

  32. Jennifer says:

    Congratulations!! What great and exciting news :) First babies are so exciting – not that second and third and fourth…babies aren’t exciting too, but there’s nothing like the excitement of your first pregnancy! Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy and can’t wait to see the nursery reveal!

  33. Darlene says:

    YAY! Congratulations. It is the joy of a lifetime!

  34. Deanne says:

    Congratulations, I have been waiting for this announcement to confirm my suspicions that you were having a baby, you lack of posts and not feeling well etc were just some of the clues!

  35. So so excited for you! I didn’t miss that in your list at all! What a blessing. Wishing you all the best. And can’t wait to see the nursery reveal {I love that PBTeen chandlier in the second photos!}
