I did it all by myself!!!

I woke up this morning to a beautiful day so despite all the things on my "to do" list I first had to sit up on the top balcony and soak up the sun for about 2 hours. It was so warm that I finally had to throw in the towel around 1pm or so and decided to get on my chores for the day. I started laundry (so my husband will have clean clothes the whole time I am gone) and then set about unpacking the crib so that it would be laid out and ready for Deaner to put together when he got home from work. The crib mattress did not arrive today, which was semi disappointing, but I figured I would want to see the crib put together anyways before departing. One thing led to another and after putting the crib together backwards, not once, but twice, I put the whole crib together by myself!And finally......Taaa daaaa!Doesn't it look great even without the mattress? I can't wait to see it with ALL the bedding but I just couldn't resist a sneak peak. Isn't the lamb bench to the right super cute? Here is a close up shot of him.I am so happy that Deaner talked me into getting him because he is SO cute. Hopefully when I return the mattress will be waiting for me and I can put the finishing touches on the room. I think I will buy the closet at Ikea and then start the search for a glider. Then all I have to do is wait for the bambino to come!

So I will be up at the crack of dawn tomorrow. Well, not THAT early, since it is actually light that early these days. Deaner will take me to the airport on his way to the office in the morning. I am sure I will be super sad to say goodbye but I am definitely looking forward to my trip home. So many oppertunities to buy things for Evans! Not to mention how much I am looking forward to seeing all my college friends! I don't even know if I have mentioned but I am having a baby shower on Saturday the 1st and 5 of my college girlfriends are flying in and staying with me at my parent's house. I can't wait to see everyone! I'll be blogging all week so y'all can follow along with my vacation! Wish me luck on my never ending flight!
