State of A-Chairs

Pinterest is full of lies.

"Upholstering is something anyone can tackle!"
"This Lazy-Boy took me 3 days to recover."
"All you have to do is fold the fabric over and staple."

The nursery has turned into a war zone as we recover a blue Lazy Boy from the 80s. I can tell you that this will be our last upholstering project that we ever do. 

Strike that from the bucket list.

Charlie's (and the guest) Bathroom



Is that not the cutest thing ever?!!? It even has matching slippers! 


I found the "Splish Splash" vinyl at Hobby Lobby and knew it would be perfect!

25 weeks

15 more to go... ish!

The dogs were photobombing the entire time this morning. Toby is licking the glass door, Ozzy is watching him, and Mayfield looks like an evil dog with her glowing eyeballs in the background.

Baby Piano Man

Charlie's nursery has a music theme, so when we went to the Charleston Repeats sale today and they had a little piano for $7 our imagination ran wild of how we could paint it and put it in an empty corner of the nursery. It didn't last long before it was already getting some play time in our house. Clay was supposedly checking to make sure that it was "in tune."

Our house is never boring.

Everything (even babies) look better in orange and purple

A Georgia fan from the church I work at and the one we attend went to the Clemson/UGA game in Clemson and brought back this cute Clemson outfit for Charlie. 
We have really been blessed by my job and a church full of wonderful people. They have truly opened up their hearts to our baby boy already and he isn't even here.

I get emails at work from people starting with "Hey Katy (and Charlie!)" or people will stop to tell me that Charlie and I are in their daily prayers. It truly is amazing and such a blessing for our little family.

Nursery is painted!

Today we labored on Labor Day and painted Charlie's nursery. We love how it turned out and can't wait to get the rest of it set up and ready. :-)
Dad is a little weird sometimes.
