Missing in Action

So, my motivation for blogging as really been missing in action lately. Not because I don't enjoy it, but because I have been a little busy getting ready for the holidays. We only have three family events to attend, with very little travel, so that isn't stressful, thankfully! However, it never fails that no matter how organized I was the previous year, I never seem to find all my decorations or they don't fit in the same place that I thought they did last year!

I have several "projects" that are in the making right now, so I will post those as soon as they are complete. But in the meantime, while I was finishing up winter semester in school, we also found out the most exciting news: we are having a baby!

I find that I use the baby as en excuse for a lot of things: " The baby is craving a long-john so I need to have one" or " The baby is tired, so I think I will lie down instead of folding laundry"
I have to admit though that in the second trimester I am getting a little more energy and am excited to get our home ready to the newest edition.
We are currently in the process of updating our kitchen/dining room on a very tight budget. My husband put in new lights a few weeks ago that he found on sale for under $50. Now we are awaiting new appliances and I'm working on a backsplash...more to come...
We have been busy cleaning out our office as it will be the baby's room. This has led to our office being crammed between my husband's hockey room and my craft room. Since we are both only children, we are finding this "adjustment" a little challanging, mostly because we like our own space so much!

I am really hoping to use this blog as a way to stay in touch with our family and friends who are not close to us here in Rochester, and will share with you as we prepare to bring the next generation of Hesbys into the world!
I hope everyone is healthy and happy and has a safe and happy holiday season!
