Sneak Peek

Whew...what a weekend!

I have lots to update about - showers, babymoon, etc - but those posts will come later.

This weekend my Dad & Mark came in town to help us put together the nursery. Let me just say, when they come to help - they mean business! If you can't run with the BIG dogs...stay on the porch. They are AWESOME! It was by no means a relaxing weekend, but lots of laughs & lots of fun was had. Hopefully, next time they come to Houston we can all relax & there will be NO tools in sight!

Here is a sneak peak of the nursery because the bedding is still being made, the canvas is still being painted, the curtains are still being sewn, the glider is still being upholstered & knick knacks are still being purchased - but here is the SHELL of the nursery...

Hanging the Mirror

Putting the Crib Together

Lucy didn't know what to think, but...

she probably hoped this was all for her!

My one assembly project...the changing table!

While I did that, the BIG dogs helped Tim
install our new wrought iron stair rails.
(A VERY challenging task!)

My favorite part of the rails...

Mom & Dad to Be

Pop & Grandpa

Once everything is in place & it is a baby ready I will post more pictures...
like I said this is just a SNEAK PEAK!

We were sad for the weekend to be over,
but happy to be well on our way to a finished nursery!

Thanks Dad & Mark for EVERYTHING - you guys are the best
& we LOVE the way everything turned out!
(In fact, I just found Tim in the nursery admiring our work.)
Alright, I am off to bed...I can barely keep my eyes open.

Blame it on...IKE?

First order of business, I would like to apologize to my husband. He was really sad that I had my LONGEST blog stall after I posted about him painting pottery. Oops! I had begged him to go with me forever & the one time he actually said he would do it AND I blogged about it - I got stuck! For the record, I was there too & here is my pottery to prove it…

I'd like to take a minute to blame my blog stall on a little something we call Ike - as in Hurricane Ike. I had all these intentions of posting about my BFF's bridal shower/bachelorette party, but then Ike happened & we lost electricity for several days. No electricity = no blogging. One thing led to another & I just lost my motivation. So here are some highlights from the past year…

My Best Friend Forever got Married

I Broke my Foot stepping off our Porch to Walk the Dogs
(really cool move)

Tim's mom took us to London & Paris

Walked the 3 Day Breast Cancer Walk with Sunni, Sarah Beth & Annalee

Clara Beara was Born & I became an Aunt AGAIN

Tim & I went to North Carolina to visit his Family

Ava Woo turned 3

Tim & I celebrated our 2nd Anniversary in Costa Rica

We Floated the Guadalupe for Tim's Birthday

My Best Friend moved to Alabama

My Dad & Mark took us to Seacrest Beach, FL

My sister, Emili, moved to NYC

BUT, the most exciting thing that happened…
We found out we were pregnant on May 11th!!

It's a girl & we are due at the beginning of January - just in case you didn't see on Facebook or on my sister's blog or on the sidebar of my blog! I guess if I wanted it to be a surprise then I should have kept blogging…that IKE!!

Hello, my name is Tiffani.

It's been awhile.
Actually, it's been 1 year, 1 month & 17 days - but who's counting?

I needed a blog break & let me tell you it was GOOD. I have a lot to catch up on, but I don't have the time tonight…so it will have to wait for another night. BUT, I just wanted to show off my new blog look created by Becky at "Cheese My Head". I am in LOVE with everything about it & I can't wait to start blogging again. If you need a little update on your blog - don’t hesitate to contact her…you WON'T regret it!

Thanks Becky - you are the BEST!!
