I have never seen such a pretty "junk drawer" in my life! And everything else is super cute, too. Totally random, but I want to add pink highlights to my hair, but I haven't been brave enough yet. Maybe someday. ;o)

I always use the freezer meals that last month of pregnancy when I don't feel like cooking. I also give myself a break and buy some already prepared meals i.e Stoufers lasagna's tyson prepared chickens etc. It just makes my life so much easier.

Amy said...

Man girly, I'm impressed! You go off bed rest for a week and BAM! You accomplish all that?!? I love the quilt! It's one of the cutest baby quilts I've seen (and I've seen a lot of them)

Kimberly said...

Trade houses with me? Please?

Because I still haven't finished the nursery. And I would luuurve to have that much cupboard space and my junk drawer could totally take yours on in a grudge match.

You rock!

I had two activities of choice while nursing:

1) Get a book, and read aloud to my other kids with my free hand.

2) Put on a show, lock myself in my room, and try really hard not to care what the kids destroyed while I was gone. Good luck!

Wow.

gigi said...

Good luck with the rest!

Stephanie said...

Seriously..Im impressed!

DeNae said...

Isn't the nesting instinct the craziest thing? Looks like YOU are good to go, lady!!

Come oooonnn, BABY!

Jocelyn Christensen said...

Wow, my junk drawer is calling out to you! You look ready for sure...especially with your toe nails painted! That is the thing I always do before giving birth! :)

Kazzy said...

You couldn't be any more ready! Now for the waiting game, huh?

Melissa Bastow said...

I never did that whole organizing/cleaning/nesting thing. Ever. And my junk drawer...yikes. Maybe it would throw you into labor to come clean my house? That would be a good thing, right?

You know what I did when I had to nurse? I let the other kids watch me hang my boobs out. But I was pretty much a baby and/or milk machine for quite a few years in a row, and I was much too lazy to think of anything better to do. My kids are well versed in all things boob. A practical knowledge, I'm sure.

Stephanie said...

Is it weird of me to think that, with all those fantastic accomplishments, the most amazing one to me is that you could paint your toenails when you're nine months pregnant?!?

You go, girl!

The Prices said...

you can do it....'cept maybe the loving laundry part.

rad6 said...

Yep, that is nesting to the Nth degree! Nice job. Happy 4th baby... so soon!
YAHOO!!!!!!! I love babies.
I love the whole hospital experience... a little bit of heaven coming to earth... creating life with our Father in HEaven... so beautiful. Enjoy it for all of us!
:)

Tobi said...

With nesting anything is possible! Did you make that quilt? You are one talented lady! Love your nursery.

MNM: Mangum Family said...

Awesome! I'm pretty sure that's the coolest junk drawer organizer I have EVER seen. Where would one find one of those?

Oh, and good luck with the rest of the list!

Kristi said...

WOW!!! You need to come and net at my house!!! With #4 I broke my arm two weeks before and was unable to nest properly... and the house has still not recovered! ;)
