Our New Lair

Phil and I worked hard this weekend! After making the fastest possible Ikea trip Friday evening (second trip in a week if you will recall), we spent all day Saturday assembling our new closet, bathroom sink vanities, extra storage towers and medicine cabinets. We made a trip to Home Depot, two trips to the hardware store yesterday, and an additional trip today. This morning we did the seemingly endless back and forth between the old bedroom and bathroom to the new bedroom and bathroom to relocate all of our toiletries, clothing, shoes, etc. We did some cleaning and managed to take showers in our new bathroom! Phil did all of the plumbing on his own, devised a system to get hanging rods in our closet, hung our new curtains, and carried all the heavy boxes. He disassembled our bed and I helped him move the mattress so that we are now officially moved into the new bat cave bedroom and will sleep in it tonight! Charlie loves it already. He loves the carpeted floor and the coziness of the place. I almost forgot! Phil also did more taping and mudding of the nursery so that we may be able to paint this week and move all the baby stuff in this next weekend! Woohoo! Things are really happening fast around here.

Ikea building headquarters...I did a lot better this weekend since I started earlier in the day and it wasn't as hot out. It was still pretty warm though...notice Charlie keeping cool by our fan :-)

Adding shelves and drawers to the master closet

Our new bathroom vanities and storage. We will be getting a large framed mirror for the wall and vanity lighting as well

So cool to have so much storage and have it be his and hers!

Bed and bedside table are in. Now we just need to get one more decorative curtain, some more lighting, trim work, etc.
Such an exciting weekend! To top it all off, our wonderful neighbors hosted a baby shower for us! We got to meet a bunch of our neighbors that we didn't really know and get to know others better. It was so sweet! It was also a gorgeous day and nice to get outside (and be forced away from organizing and cleaning). It is so hard to believe that Micah could come at any time now, but definitely is just weeks away! Only weeks! Crazy!
