These pictures are more for my hubby who is off playing, okay just kidding, working in Europe for 2 weeks. He wanted to see some house updates. I only have a few because I didn't want to bother the workers. Plus, when I walked into our house, a loud machine was going and there was dust everywhere. I'm pretty sure they were painting. I saw one coat of paint on but didn't leave the mudroom since everything was covered and I was choking on the dust and smell.

They started the brick. It looks so dark to me but I was told that it was because the mortar was still wet. It starts out gray but lightens up to almost a cream I believe....I hope....

It was nice to at least see that my new hardwood floor and everything else was covered really well before the paint started. I'm so worried about the floor getting scratched!

Um, our back door neighbors decided to start building. So our backyard is filled with their dirt. I didn't think our backyard would be that big anyway but seeing the dirt, it looks a lot smaller than I was even thinking!!!

Baby Shower With Friends

I have some amazing friends, starting with the one I am living with right now. My good friend Kearsten has been asking if she could throw me a baby shower for months. Knowing that a lot of my friends are nurses, I knew it was going to be tricky to get all of us together. So she had the great idea of meeting at a restaurant for lunch and doing a little shower there. Worked for me.

We met at Zupa's in Salt Lake. If you haven't been there before, I HIGHLY suggest it. It is my favorite "in and out" restaurant. Kear ordered fondue for us and it was a lot of fun talking and laughing. Thank you to all of those who took time out of their busy lives to come to the shower. It meant a lot to me. I also got some fabulous gifts and now my sister can't say that I don't have anything for the baby....

Updated house pictures

The house is looking more and more like a house. They have started the travertine in the mud room, laundry room, half bath, kids bathroom and master bathroom. The dry wall and mudding is all done. We have made decisions about hardwood, cabinets and granite counter tops. So many decisions and hard not to second guess yourself. In fact, we have already changed cabinet colors which caused hardwood floor and granite color changes. But I think we are done changing our minds. The brick and stucco have been picked out. It's a lot more fun seeing everything come to together cuz I can actually picture what everything is supposed to look like.

For those that care, I will be 32 weeks on Tuesday and I promise to post an 8 month pregnancy picture of my belly.
