Curtains Complete Missing Pic

Missing curtain pic. This was meant to be on the first post about Le Curtains.

Heyo hubby!

Baby's Room Tour

Just some pics of the completed room. This room originally had a wood panel wall that peeled back to reveal old timey animal print wallpaper. It kind of creeped me out until we repainted.

hubby built the 6 cube bookshelf. I am super proud of his skills! I made the curtains, bed skirt, baby blanket, and lovie.

Now all it needs is a baby!

Prints say things like "Baby Chewy says Auuuugghh" and little Han playing with his toy ship. Plus there are hidden vinyl droids, Luke, and Leah among the vinyl solar system. Oh and a few Dr. Who references to appease me :)

Curtains Complete


Done and hung. $25 for the fabric (sewn and serged by moi) with hangers and the pole creatively done by the hubby (stair rail as the poles and brackets he routed himself).

Now guests in the loft will have privacy and when hub's nephew stays with us for a few months I will have privacy to nurse and watch TV! Huzzah!

Please excuse my not Pinterest perfect house. We are a constant work in progress!

What not to say to a Prego...


So I am 33 Weeks and 3 days along.  Today three different things happened to me that really upset me. However, I will just tell the two that were work related and leave the other for the innards...

#1 - Candy bar NEED attacked me, so I went to the cafeteria to fix the problem.  Shop guy in overalls loudly asks in front of about 20 of his peers... "Excuse me young lady, you know what causes THAT (obviously meaning my belly) right?!  It isn't in the water anymore" cue 20 of his piers laughing at me!  I tried to feign kindness, but that quickly turned to me ignoring while he continued "don't turn me into Human Resources...blahblahblah" as I try to hold back tears, choose the candy bar and escape with some dignity (meaning, don't cry don't cry don't cry) 20 men are staring and laughing at me!  What am I supposed to say!?  If I wasn't a self proclaimed Mr. Snuffleupagus my sister told me I should say something very explicit about how this baby might have come to pass and embarrass them, but I so don't have that ability at all!  I'm no Honey Badger!

Now go search references on Snuffleupagus and Honey Badger, off with you.  But come back when you are done...I will wait.

#2 - "You must be about to pop, huh?"..."I remember when I first met you and you were like a rail"

Telling someone that they used to be skinny and implying that they are no longer skinny is offensive.  I have had plenty of people tell me how I am "all belly" and that from the back I don't even look pregnant.  To that I say, "thank you kind ladies, what a very nice compliment".  I say lady, because women are much nicer about what they say to prego's in my opinion.  Men just blab blab blab and don't realize when they were offensive.

I have had a handful more occasions that have hurt my feeling and made me cry, but two in one day is a pretty busy one!
