Still here.

Hey my lovelies. Yep, I’m still here. Remember back in January when I said that I was going to focus on my peace of mind, and not have guilt about not blogging too often? Well a few things came up which made me entirely drop the ball on the blogging since then, at least on this blog.

First of all, that kitchen reno? It’s started. In a major way. And while it might seem crazy that I haven’t posted about it, that’s because I’ve been too busy blogging about it over on Apartment Therapy! I’m participating in their Renovation Diary program, where I post my weekly updates there, and they pitch in a little dough to help out with the renovation. So far they’ve only posted the first three weeks of my reno, so you can catch up on everything here. I’ll post updates here when new content goes up every Wednesday. We are actually much further along than their posts let on, which is good, because of this second thing.

Secondly, this other thing has been taking up a lot of our mental space.


Yep, at the time of writing I’m at 30 weeks (the photo is from 24 weeks I think, I have grown exponentially since this photo). Only 10 more weeks to go already! I’ve been pretty shy about posting bump pictures in general on social media – I am not one of those ladies who likes to document every single week. But despite my radio silence, I have really enjoyed this pregnancy so far. I’ve felt great and had lots of energy, which is good because the last few months have been the busiest I’ve had in recent memory. And we are so, so excited to meet this little jumping bean (gender unknown!).

Thirdly, work has gotten really insane the last few months, and has taken up every last scrap of my spare mental energy. I am glad to have gotten the chance to work hard before taking a well-deserved maternity leave, but I’m hoping things calm down a bit for my last trimester.

Does all this mean that we have abandoned other work around the house? Well, yes and no. The entryway is sort of on hold (although we’ve progressed since my last post!). And oh, we also need to decorate a nursery. Hahah. I actually have the design in my mind already, so that’s like more than half the work right??

So that’s what’s happening with us. I’m hoping to post a few more updates on what’s happening elsewhere in the house, time permitting, before this baby arrives. I’ve missed this little blog, and you readers out there. Happy summer everybody.

    Wah! Big Congratulations!!! That is so awesome about the pregnancy, you’re gonna love being a mom! I’m with you on the baby bump and the internet, I never felt comfortable with belly shots either. Glad to hear you are enjoying the pregnancy, you’re one of the lucky ones!

    Also, awesome on the AT renovation diary! I’m curious to see how far you actually are in real life, but I’ll just sit tight and wait. Your inspiration space is the same kitchen I have in mind for when the time finally comes over here. I’m really looking forward to seeing how yours turns out.

    Again, without sounding crazy, I’m totally excited for you. Yay for summer babies!

      Aw, thanks so much Alison! I have been dying to get back to posting, it got to the point where I had so much to share it just seemed like too much all at once. And yes, I definitely feel lucky, this pregnancy has been very smooth (knock on wood!).

      We are already a good 8-9 weeks into this reno! I would love to share more but I’ll try and channel that sharing excitement into posts about other stuff. But I might post a few sneak peeks on Instagram. :)

      I am SO appreciative of your comments! So glad to share in the excitement.

    Love your bump Chris!! And so cool you’re doing the reno diary on Apartment Therapy! I didn’t know they had that — now I might want to try that… I love your writing style! I want to see this baby room come to fruition now…!

      Lisa, me too!! I have all the elements in my brain, I just have to make them happen in real life. And soon! I’m really starting to feel the clock ticking…

    Your inspiration photos is EXACTLY what I’d love to do with our kitchen someday. I can’t wait to see how yours turns out. And the whole baby thing? So excited. Motherhood is wonderful and awful and the best thing in the world. You’re going to love it :)
