weekend recap

Weekend Recap: The Breakdown

  1. Take some Melatonin an hour or so before bed works for me.

    I also have a friend that tries a cold icepack under her head and she falls right asleep…(it’s some study that just came out and in the future they are making some helmet thing with a ice pack built in) but she just uses an icepack.

    Can’t wait to see the closet…room is looking great!


  2. After three kids, I decided that the cruel irony that you can’t sleep during the last few months that you are the boss of the hours that you sleep is your bodies way of getting you ready for the lack of sleep that is just around the corner…..it’s like training for a marathon….sort of….except at the end of the marathon you’re tired in a good way. 🙂

    I found releif sleeping with a pillow between my knees….I hope you are able to get some rest before you have your baby!!

  3. sarah says:

    I never found relieve either, I was up every hour at the end with my twins!
    However, I heard lots of people talk about sleeping in a recliner…

  4. I’m with the others. Your body’s just practicing to get up with the baby. Hope and pray your son will be a good sleeper! If not, know that you’re not alone, because my daughter didn’t sleep through the night until she was a year old. Good luck!!

  5. Barbara says:

    You’ve done so well in so little time, the nursery already looks great! Good luck for the few months you have left!

  6. I can’t wait to see you transform this room!!!

    And the waking up thing…I think it’s nature’s way of preparing you for when the baby arrives and gets up to eat!

  7. Yay!! I can’t wait to see how this room transforms!

  8. Katrina says:

    I so remember the sleepless nights and days of being so tired!! 🙁 My only tip would be to take lots of naps thought out the day and kick you feet up

  9. Congrats on entering your 3rd trimester! I hit my 3rd trimester this week too. We spent the weekend buying a 4 wheel drive and testing gliders. So many decisions to make. Can’t wait to see your nursery.

  10. Donna McCandless says:

    there was a cool crib on this site today is you haven’t decided yet.

  11. You made a ton of progress!! That is one beautiful guest room, but I’m excited to see what you do with it! Happy Halloween!

  12. Camilla – Can’t wait to see this room finished! As for sleep, I had three and is it terrible to say in hindsight it’s so much easier to sleep when you’re pregnant when you don’t have two toddlers as well? So it’s all perspective – just nap, nap nap whenever and wherever you want!

    Happy Halloween!


  13. Tara says:

    I had trouble sleeping with my twins, too. Every once & awhile I broke down and took a half dose of benadryl… not saying I recommend that, but, well, I was desperate.

    Good luck!!

  14. Aja says:

    🙂 I must say, your middle of the night wake ups sound surprisingly like a newborn wake up schedule. I can’t believe you are already in the 3rd trimester! It’s flown by! Can’t wait to see the nursery all done!

  15. Beware those shelves in the closet! Remember that you’re having a boy, and he WILL try to remove everything from the shelves and then climb up them like ladder. Goodbye, sweet little shelf vignettes! 😉

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
