The Stir Crazies

I'm not going to lie and tell you I haven't been a little stir crazy this week. We're still reeling from the post nasal drip {it came back to bite me, and the Smalls}. And of course I'm understandably struggling with my ever growing size the motherhood. Sleep is hit or miss, but overall we are hanging in there and very much looking forward to a weekend watching Auburn football and grilling hamburgers!  

I have a little philosophy to deal with the stir crazies. And that philosophy is "When in doubt, take a walk." When I'm doubting what I should do next at home particularly because I lack motivation or  because I just can't stand the thought of folding another piece of laundry or washing another dish, I know its time to GET OUT and get some fresh air.

The Smalls and I walked and played in the yard most of yesterday morning leaving my agenda to deep clean the kitchen by the wayside. It was so good for our souls. We came in around lunch time and felt like new human beings! Aunt Lu brought us over some corn chowder she made and we ate on the back porch. It was lovely.

These pictures capture an over stimulated Stephen Small playing in my favorite quilt I bought on sale at Target two years ago. I'd like to decorate {if I were good at decorating, which I'm not} an entire room - or house for that matter, with its color scheme.

I'm still working on preparing the room for the new baby and it looks like it will be early December before I finish. My mom bought some of this ADORABLE fabric for me to tackle a little project with over Thanksgiving.

I also hope to get some significant cleaning underway before the holidays. So far its going very slow.

I blame it on my largeness.

Hope you all have a great weekend!!!

Many a walk has saved our house! Smalls is too cute with all those teeth. Hilarious belly shot... Oh the motherhood.

Bless you! I'm becoming increasingly unmotivated & a little ornery. I'm blaming it on my increasing largeness & my lack of sleep. I'm just hoping that the holidays will make the remainder of this pregnancy FLY by! For me & you;). At least you are keeping up with your blog, which is more than I can say for myself!!! Hope y'all have a great weekend! We are headed to the Plains...I hope I survive!

Not good at decorating? Bah! I think you are great at it! Just from the header on your blog, it's obvious you rock with composition and colors! Not to mention your incredible talentedness (is that a word?) with all things sewing and cooking!

Love the quilt!

Can't wait to see what you do with baby blue hoot fabric!

And I love me some Wrights! And some mint julep cups!

Happy weekend to you, too!
