Is it still called nesting if you're not cleaning?

A $1.77 impulse buy at the Gee Dub (Goodwill, naturally) yesterday has resulted in all sorts of ridiculosity today.  And a sink full of dirty dishes as we carry out said ridiculosity instead of doing our regular chores.  What's that?  Oh, you'd like to see my budget-busting impulse purchase, would you?  Thought you'd never ask...

Hand painted, googly-eyed originals for just $0.59 each!  I saw them and a cheapo room do-over flashed before my eyes quicker than you can say "Put those dang things down, devil woman!".

Anyway, I snatched 'em up and brought 'em home and since then have been forcing  encouraging my children to help me clean and reorganize Cecilia's tiny bedroom so that we can snazzy it up a bit before the New Nugget arrives.

It's gonna be so cute!  And then maybe she can share it with the baby someday!  And then someday after that Paul can have it to himself!  And so on and so forth with things you don't care about!
Super duper helpful, can you tell?
Now if you'll excuse me, I can hear the hot glue gun calling my name.

Freaky, right?

p.s. This also explains why I was searching for tutorials on covering boxes with fabric to use for storage, btw.

p.p.s. For a super awesome picture of me, taken by my Katie, that you will NOT want to miss (think "belly + gun = countrified fun") and links to uber fantastical bloggers, check out Snapshots from a Sunday over at Clan Donaldson.  Trust me!

  1. Your picture, I think, wins best Snapshots picture ever. In fact, maybe two months from now (not next month, since I was Borobia baby to make her Snapshots debut!), I'll have a "Best of" round, and I'll run your picture again!

  2. Don't even bother with a Best Of, Cari... Her's wins, hands down. How about a Try And Top This contest?

  3. LOVE those pictures, and the clan snapshot too!

  4. Oh my, your picture at the Clan is awesome!! You're uber cool.

    And what gorgeous finds, love them!

  5. Spur-of-the-moment, suddenly-inspired renovation projects are the best :)

    And I love the photo of you at Clan Donaldson!

  6. Ooh, excited to see how it turns out!
