I can't help myself. I've gotta show off my latest baby pictures.
We can debate for hours about what's what here, but the ultrasound tech said that's my little guy with his hand up against his cheek and I think he's looking at the camera. What do you think?
Hey, what's that? He says we have a winner! Yep, the winner of my CSN giveaway, generated by Random.Org, is the wonderful Nancy from Nancy's Tidbits. Here's a tidbit for ya, did you know that Nancy's daughter Hannah, who also has a blog, Turley Times, is due about a month after me with a little girl? Yep. And if you visit her blog, you can see some way cool pix of Hannah's baby in 3D!
Congrats Nancy. Give the lady a hand!
That is definitely a hand...
Now, I probably won't be doing much Holiday decorating around here this year given my situation. But there's nothing stopping me from tweaking what's already out. Now don't worry - I didn't move all this stuff around in my condition. That's what my slaves children are for.
After spending a month straight on the sofa looking at my coffee table, I opted for a small change.
This class hurricane was only $6 at Marshalls. Filled it with potpourri and plopped a candle in there. Good to go.
To the right of the sofa is my great aunt's old secretary. I got bored looking at that too.
So I added that there plate. I got it a while back at a yard sale and it sat on the island of misfit decor until I found a use for it. But if I were him, I wouldn't get too comfortable there.
Between episodes of All My Children I glance up at the entertainment center.
Got this piece for a steal at Sam's Club a few years ago and I love it.
Added a cloche to the top right.
Then AMC came back on and I was distracted again.
Next commercial I moved into the brown room otherwise known as my office. It's really the living room, but it serves as my office/mom cave. I've been trying to add some sparkle in here to brighten it up a bit. It was way too dark and heavy with all of the brown furniture. You can go here to see what I mean.
Well, I made another small change with this elegant mercury glass lamp from Marshall's. Only $40~
It's the perfect size for my desk.
Here's the before:
And as much as I love this tall lamp, it was too heavy for the room.
This is much better I think.
Don't you hate dangling cords?
Have a wonderful weekend!
