It has been a looong week of work and chores for us, we even had "jury duty" to content with,
so we are really looking forward to the weekend.
We are expecting lots of rain for the next couple of days, but we can't complain, our weather has been gorgeous
and full of sunshine. Our temperatures reached the 80's just this past Wednesday.
A rainy weekend is just a great time for some indoor projects. :)
As you all know, we are getting ready for the arrival of our son and his wife. After five years of Navy life, he decided to put to good use in the civilian world all the schooling and training he has received during his military time.
The will be home in just four weeks and if everything goes according to plan, their first son
will be born two weeks later.
They will be staying with us while she recuperates and they find their new home.
No complains here since I have not seen my son in 12 months. :(
Many changes had to be done around here. Every other room in this house is taken, so we had to make due
with the space we have available.
This is his room.
This room has been empty for so long now, for not for much longer.
I have been busy purchasing new pillows, towels and linens for them.
First, let me say I never thought I see a crib come into my home again. Never say never!
We had the kids choose the crib they wanted and we purchased it for them as a gift.
They choose this beautiful Thomasville convertible crib, which converts all the way into a full size bed and I think it will serve their son well for many years to come.
His room is not huge, so it has taken us a while to figure out how to arrange everything to make it the most comfortable for everyone involved.
They have purchased all the bedding, so for now, it sits empty. Isn't it pretty? :)
And I couldn't help myself when I saw the matching changing table, so I bought it for them praying the whole time
it was going to fit in the room. :)
The door you see on the right goes into the bathroom, so I think that spot will be most convenient.
The cute baskets I found at Ikea.
I thought they would be great for extra storage and if later on they don't need them, all you do is unzip them
from the bottom and they collapse. Pretty neat, right?
The room is not big, but I think they will be able to survive in it for a few weeks until they buy their home.
And since we know they are going to have many sleepless nights, we made sure to make room for his TV cabinet.
This weekend I will be organizing and decorating their bathroom, which is a "Jack and Jill" bathroom, that until now,
it has been used by our teenage son.
Enough said! That is why you have never seen any pictures of it. :)
Thank you all for stopping by.
Have a super great weekend!
