Another Project in the Making…

This one has been going on behind the scenes for a little over 3 months now.  It’s the true reason for my lack of posting, our lack of taking on new renovation projects, and {TOTAL} lack of feeling like doing anything else than laying in my bed!!

Have you guessed yet? 


Mr. vB and I are so excited. You’ve seen in previous posts, how much fun we have with all our niece and nephews.  Now we get to spoil our own kid rotten!! {have no fear Maddy, Travers, or Philip- we will still spoil you too!}

We just finished up our 1st trimester and I’m anxiously awaiting the morning sickness and hyper-sensitvity to smell to come to an end!!  I literally cannot walk anywhere on the 1st floor of our house with gagging. {I blame it on the new sisal rug in the kitchen and dining room.} It REALLY puts a cramp in my everyday routine. Also no more coffee, no more fried foods, and no more cooking in general.  Poor Mr. vB hasn’t had a home cooked meal in over 2 months!!

But I am quite excited to get working on the nursery!!  We are planning on using the small sitting room right off the master bedroom, which will be just perfect.  Enough room for a crib, changing table, and a glider!  But it will require a bit of work.  We will be adding a door that will slide across the opening between the 2 rooms, as well as doing some fun painting.  I’m envisioning a very fresh, crisp nursery that isn’t overly boy OR girl.  Ideas are swirling in my head!  Can’t wait to get Mr. vB focused started on it!

Here’s a sneak peek at the room before. (Disclaimer: the room is still junked up from when we moved everything upstairs to refinish the hardwood floors.  You know I’m not normally such a pack rat!)

So now you know and I ask you forgive me for the lack of excitement around this blog recently.  Things are gonna pick up soon I promise!  Stay Tuned!

    Congrats on the pregnancy! I can’t wait to hear all of your ideas for the baby nursery and see it in the making! I hear you on the “no cooking.” It’s kind of hard when everything stinks and you’re not feeling well. “Daddy” will survive!

    Congratulations Totty and Mr. vB!
    When I started reading the post I thought there was another renovation project you’d been keeping from us for 3 months. My first thought was “what else do they have to do still?”
