Conrad and I had a wonderful weekend. Since Isabelle was as my parent’s until Saturday evening, we went shopping and re-did our bedroom, which I am very pleased with. We got new curtains, which Conrad was totally excited about. I had only valences up (over blinds). He just didn’t get a valence’s purpose. But was excited about the curtains that help keep the early morning sun out. Never mind that they don’t work to keep the early morning children out!
We also got a new duvet and sham’s at West Elm, and new frames and matte’s to highlight our new family pic’s in our bedroom. I’ll post pictures soon. I still didn’t find throw pillows I have been looking for in a nice autumn shade of orange, or a chair slip cover (by the way, does anyone have any good advice on kinds of slip covers to get??), and we haven’t painted the walls yet. But overall, I am still very pleased!
We topped the night off with a late dinner at the Cheesecake factory. Very crowded but the food was pretty good, and of course, the Cheesecake was really good!
I also started the washing and packing process in anticipation of Baby M’s arrival. We got much done before we picked up Isabelle on Saturday night, and by Sunday afternoon I started coming down with a wretched cold. Needless to say, I didn’t get much sleep last night and I was jonesin’ for some Nyquil. Oh sweet alcoholic sleep….I resisted the urge and sucked on sugar free cough drops all night, as I tossed and turned, coughed and blew. It’s already been a long morning.
