Why is it that pregnant people usually want to start painting? Maybe we know that painting with a belly is going to be a heck of a lot easier than painting with a baby attached to the breast. I'm thinking that we'll keep our guest room a guest room, and have the kids share a room once baby is out of our room. So we're not thinking of painting the nursery, but our kitchen is in need of a new look. Currently there are beige walls and white cabinets, with a kind of creamy-coffee colored trim. Very bland. The rooms near our kitchen (dining room, living room, hallway) are all the same color: a kind of deep seaglassy blue-green. Our kitchen floor is gray.
I'll probably wax sentimental about the new baby another time, but the realities of making our new (to us) home a nest seem to be occupying my mind now. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an easy second trimester so I can make some progress on homemaking projects!

We're keeping the cabinets white, just looking for a more inspiring wall color. One that will look cool with the color of our hallway and dining room!
Oh, and we're "due" August 28th. Happy. Happy.
