How did this happen? ... and a HUGE announcement!

Do you ever look at a room in your home and wonder, "how did this happen?" That how I felt this morning walking into my office/craft room. Since my craft show in November things have gone from good to bad in here. I finally got most of the craft show leftovers {what a horrible way to refer to them} put away. But I still have a box full of shipping supplies to put away. A pile of fabric that I ran out of time to use for the craft show. Items waiting to be photographed. Spools of ribbon - wound and unwound thanks to a helpful little 3 year old. Toys that have made there way in here from the adjacent playroom. 

Projects that are half done. Supplies that are waiting for their turn to be turned into something fabulous! My sewing machine in it's traveling case. Clothing that needs to be mended. You name it, it's there. I can't help but wonder what in the world happened for my once super neat and organized craft room/office to get to this point. 

...and then I remember this....

Yep... I have a bun in the oven! I suppose this little guy {or girl} may have had a little something to do with the chaos and clutter. Especially when the last 3 months or so have been spent going from the couch, to my bed, to the bathroom floor! To anyone who never experience morning sickness... let me start by saying.. I think I might hate your guts! Thankfully I am starting to feel better and getting back to semi-normality {including working on this mess}. 

{Unfortunately this is the BEST ultrasound pic I have. Baby is face towards you - head on the right!}

Me, my hubby, and the kids are so excited to soon be welcoming the newest addition to our family. My daughter wants a girl so she can share her bedroom with her {little does she really know what they means!}. My son wants a boy so he can share his toys -- uhh... yah, I'm sure that would happen. He also thinks I have a baby and a mommy in my tummy. I guess that makes sense to him... otherwise, who would be taking care of the baby!?! 

We'll find out the gender in about 3-1/2 weeks and can't wait. I am already brainstorming a fun way to share that news with the family. So far I have come up with: 
• Taking a picture of my kids wearing t-shirts to announce it. 
• A gender reveal party.
• Mailing out homemade scratchers. 
• Just being boring and posting it on Facebook. 

Any other ideas?

  1. Congrats! That's great news! I wish you the best!

  2. I think you should do a reveal cake party... That is what I will do next time.

  3. Congratulations.
    Your craft room looks nice compared to our playroom. I am in my last month of pregnancy and the last trimester has left me completely wiped out.
    I actually like the t-shirt picture idea.

  4. Man... Brenda stole my cake idea. However you decide to do it will be fun... just don't make me crazy with waiting, I can't stand it already!!!!!!


Thank you so much for stopping by. I would love to hear from you!
