TTUT-Prepping for the Baby Shower

Mr. Sheffield: [About Fran and her pregnancy] Ever since she entered her third trimester, her mood swings have been lethal.
Niles: Oh, I know. It’s worse than when Sylvia gave up chocolate. That was the most unbearable hour of my life. -The Nanny

  • The cold I caught last week knocked me on my ass. I am finally, finally feeling better. I developed this cough that made me sound like a wounded seal. It didn’t help that Match would tease me about waddling and said that I looked and sounded like one.
  • I can’t believe I’m just a week away from my 8th month of pregnancy. Well into the 3rd trimester and besides that pesky cold I’m feeling great!  
  • I managed to get a few things done that I’ve been needing to do before the shower. I put up new blinds in our bay windows, after my beautiful new windows were installed on Friday.
  • Here’s the before and after of the windows. I’m so glad to be rid of those ugly old black framed windows, and the ugly brown blinds that went with them. I wish I had a before pictures with the blinds. They were brown and didn’t match any of the wood in the room.


  • I finished Piglet’s height chart for the nursery. I plan on doing a nursery tour at the shower (which will include a name reveal!) and this one of the final touches.

  • There is still so much to do before the shower. Right now I’m in the process of painting the office ceiling fan, and hoping to paint the guest room one as well. I’d also like to get new drapes for the family room and have those put up this week. Then I just have to deep clean the house (with Match’s help of course!) and finalize the last minute details. I’m so excited for Saturday!!


    Windows look great. Can’t wait for his name!


    Those windows do look so much nicer and brighter.
    Sounds like with the shower happening, you are going to get all the nesting out of the way early.


    i love love love your new windows!! they make such a difference!

    i’m so glad you’re feeling better! colds are the worst.

    and i say this yet again… you are so darn crafty!!! the height chart is great 🙂


    Wow the new windows really look great! The white + no bars on the glass really brighten it up in there!

    And the height chart looks awesome too! Great job!


    The height chart is such a nice touch to Piglet’s room! And that’s exciting that you’re doing a name reveal at your shower… although I’m thinking it will be an adjustment for me to think of him as anything but Piglet! haha! Exciting times ahead, for sure 🙂


    Love love that growth chart! And oh if you are revealing the name at the shower does that mean you are going to tell us too???
