Rustic Farmhouse Bench

I'm so excited about this next project I've finished up - my RUSTIC FARMHOUSE BENCH!  

A few months ago, I asked my husband to make me a bench.  I told him I would find the plans, and it didn't have to be perfect.  With the help of his friend Josh and Josh's dad (but, mostly Josh's dad) , my husband came home one night with this:  
It was perfect!!  Just what I wanted.  It took me a while to finish the rest of the process; the staining, painting, and sanding; but once I did, I was so thrilled with how the bench turned out.  And because those are all 2x4's, the materials for this project were under $50.  It would have been less, but my husband decided to buy the Kreg Jig that's mentioned in the building plans.  

I spent the next few months finding time here and there to finish the bench, and here are the results.

Mint & Peach Nursery Inspiration

The nursery we created for Peanut was my favorite room in our last house.  I have so many memories of cleaning out the guest bedroom and painting to get ready for our little girl.  I loved creating one of a kind artwork for her room and adding personal touches as she grew.  

Preparing for the arrival of baby #2 has been quite different.  I haven't felt the need to get everything ready and just so...even though I'm 32 weeks along already (yikes!).  Maybe it's because we're not buying new and are slowly bringing baby things out of storage; maybe it's because there's already a little one in the house to take care of.  Whatever the case, I'm a little (OK, a lot) behind when it comes to getting this little cherub's room ready.

But, I do have a plan!

15 Thoughts We've All Had While Waiting for the Doctor

I've spent plenty of time in doctor's offices lately and there's just something about sitting there alone, in that sterile room that gets my mind racing.  Especially when my phone dies.  I'm sure these are thoughts we've all had while waiting for the doctor at some point.  Right??
