Living Room, Spring, Ernie... (7QT)

As foreshadowed in Monday's post, the crappiness has continued this week with a four day lull between my visits to ye olde blog.  Mea culpa!

Did you know it got spring up in this piece?  It totally did!  Mr. Camera came with me outside on Wednesday morning (because God is being so so so so merciful to me with this pregnancy that the 2nd trimester is actually.....wait for it....bringing some relief from the barfy sleepiness.  Can you believe it?  I thought that thing was a total lie!) and I snagged a couple of shots of what's going on in the yards:

And open windows and breezes and flip flops and sliced apples on the picnic table outside and chickens laying eggs faster than we can eat them.  And sunshine!  And the garden!  And oh my gosh, I feel like the world is a place I can love again, especially because I can be awake in it.  Amazing.

I'd like to submit the above paragraph for the highly aclaimed "Most Letter As Used in a Single Quick Take" award.

Hey, wanna see something genius I did?  Sorry, I'm showing you anyway.  

So I had this desk frame but I wanted to make it a wall frame.  Check it.

I'm a reg'lar Martha Stewart or sumfin.

About that living room....

Here was my Pinterest inspiration (yes, I actually use Pinterest for practical things!  Pick up your jaws!)

Of course I am still not done, what with this modified fake not-bedrest business and all, but here are is a sneaky peek:


Found this against the barn.  Wha....?

  1. Oh, your living room looks beautiful! I am looking forward to the finished pictures.
    And your yard! I miss spring appearing like that. It's just not the same in San Diego.
    And the bald Ernie is bizzar-o. Really, really, truly.

  2. Wait. #1. Is that a real bird nest? It looks so perfect! It must be staged!

    # 6 So excited for the reveal!

    1. Doesn't it though? I couldn't believe it when I saw it!

  3. Picture frame fix up...genius! i love it!

  4. So excited to see the reveal, more excited you are finally getting some good weather.
    Frame fix ~ genius indeed.

    Happy Mother's Day!

  5. Oh to be where there are real lilacs! Not that I want to live somewhere else, but that's got to be one of the BEST things about living in Michigan (no lilacs in SoCal, that's for sure!). It seems like you get more energy to tackle big projects when you're pregnant. The living room is looking SO nice (color wise - that's all we can see so far).

  6. Pretty, pretty photos. Hope you feel bettter sooner than November. :)

  7. We are having Spring here in Seattle like no other-in fact, it is better than the last 3 or 4 summers, we are outside constantly. I don't even want to come in at all-loving spring, and congratulations on your baby on the way and easier pregnancy!!!!

  8. Love the picture frame fix. And yay for spring! I've been so much happier since we got some of that around here.

  9. Congratulations on the new littlest one in da belly! I love your random #7 pic. You should do a themed photo post of all the funny and unconventional uses your kids find for various objects! Kids are great at that. :)

  10. You keep taunting us with the big reveal! It's killing me. I'm gonna cut you some slack since you're pregnant and all....

  11. Oh my goodness...I'm loving these little sneak peeks of your living room. I can't wait for the full reveal!!!!

    And I'm glad to hear that you're starting to feel better. Nausea that goes past the first trimester is no fun!

  12. SO excited for #6!!! And also, #7? Ultimate time-out. Wonder what he did wrong?

  13. Spring... *sigh* I'm just gonna stare at your breezy-licious pics as I swelter and stew in our ninety-freakin-nine degree weather tomorrow.

  14. I can't get past #4. Tell me it came from a beer can b/c I would LOVE it lol

  15. Can't wait to see the finished project!
