It's been a long time...

It's been a long time
I shouldn't a left you
Without a dope beat to step to

I feel like I've been here before: Checking in after a long winter that was short on daylight and remodeling progress.  When we last left you, we had just completed the half bathroom and the kitchen was next on our list. Well...it still is, but our regularly scheduled remodeling plans have been pleasantly interrupted in order to convert the office into a nursery.  That's right -- exciting times ahead (on so many different levels).

Here's a look at the preliminary design board that I threw together about two months ago in order to surprise my parents with the news.  Quite a bit has changed since then, but this gives a peek into the general direction we are going:

We put the board together before we knew we were having a boy, but we were generally going for a fun, modern and gender-neutral nursery. 

As mentioned above, the kitchen is still technically the next project, its just been rough getting motivated to actually start it.  Most of the material selections have been made, its just making the calls to get some quotes on new cabinet doors that seem to be holding me up -- just don't want to deal with it. Its one of those things where once I make the first call, I suspect everything will fall into place.  With our first child on the way, at least we I have a (somewhat) solid deadline!

Stay tuned (and thanks for visiting)...

Congrats on the expecting little one. I don't think we had a nursery done for either child until 6-8 months after they were born.
