Snow Day #2

This snow day has been much more productive!  Yesterday, I did NOTHING and stayed in my jammies almost all day.  But, considering I had another freebie day off ahead of me, I figured I better get some things done today.  Soooo, I have:
-done 4 loads of laundry (and counting!)
-cleaned bathrooms
-grocery shopped
-went to Target
-done some much needed filing (my "to be filed" drawer was overflowing!)
-started packing my hospital bag
-worked a little in the nursery

Now I am on the couch with my swollen feet up -- I am worn out!

I have been promising a nursery reveal for awhile.  Well, I can't quite call it a "reveal" as it is still not 100% done....however, hopefully you will be happy with some nursery "progress".  It is getting very close to being ready for our little girl.

Here's the view as you walk into her room:

Her quilt is hung on the wall, and the rest of the bedding is all complete.  I finished the crib skirt and bumper pads during my Winter Break.

This corner has the glider and a couple of vintage framed needlepoints (courtesy of Aunt Debbie, circa early 80s!).  Also finally found a curtain for the window.  I was going to make one, but the bedding had me just about sewed-out.  This one was on sale at Pottery Barn Kids, and is nice and thick with a black-out lining.

This area needs some work.  I'm not sure what is going to go on the walls here, but I am just happy that I've gotten some things organized in this part of the room.  I still want to make a mobile, and was thinking it might be cute hanging above the changing table...

It's coming together.  I am losing energy by the day, so I try to go in there and do a little bit at a time.  Can't wait to have the baby here to complete it!
