So it's been quite a while since my last blog again. Aside from my ever growing baby, sweet and active toddler, pile of laundry and stuffs around the house, a part-time work at home job was added on my plate. I'm not talking about my freelance contractual work I do once in a while or my photography & artwork. I'm talking about being employed "again".

I woke up this morning to take out the mail in the mailbox. It's snowing and I guess it's probably been snowing since early morning. It's white everywhere, but it wasn't thick as back in northern indiana where hubby was from.

This morning, the door bell rang and we got two packages from our post guy. Whenever this season of the year arrives, USPS always pays us a visit and sometimes, the guy in the brown shorts too! But today, one package is unexpected because I forgot my sister-in-law sent it. We got her coffees! One is our order from her coffee site and other extra FREE coffees! A lot of FREEBIES! And did I say FREEBIES loud?!

It's been over 3 months since I last blogged and of course a lot of things happened in the past 3 months. To sum it up, we moved to the house we bought even we haven't close on that yet in August, then we sold our beloved small Hyundai Accent together with our GPS as a freebie with the car then bought a used white minivan to accommodate the additional car seat and stroller.

Sometimes, when we don't see the end of the tunnel, we tend to panic or become frantic. We are supposed to close on the house last Monday but because we applied for RHS loan, the processing got delayed a little bit because of all gov't backlogged (according to our lender).

I'm trying to figure out how we're going to combine a girl toddler with the baby on the way in ONE ROOM. Actually, for the first few months...the baby will be sleeping in our bedroom on a used cradle we bought out of Craigslist.com and Gwen's old crib set will be re-purposed/re-finished for the baby boy Caleb.
Since the two rooms of the house we bought are on the first level while the 3rd bedroom is in the basement, it just make sense for both of them to be in the same room for a couple of years. We can't put the the baby or Gwen in the basement, far from our sight when the master's bedroom is on the first level. So, I kept searching and searching the net for inspiration or design concept on having two opposite-gender kids in one room and I found some!
Found this at Apartment Therapy's "OhDeeDoh.com" website which is Jackie and Joe's room. That is what I actually thought of, paint the crib set and furnitures white. It will go well with the existing room's paint color which is light green.
I can't get over the elephant in my head, so I better add this decals on the wall where the crib goes! Decals by DecalHappy.etsy.com
This decals are cool also to put in their room! Found this again at Apartment Therapy's OhDeeDoh.com website.One last inspiration I found was from TonyaJoy Photography. She posted her kid's vintage-inspired room. I'm tempted to go this route...modern-vintage black and white room. Hmmm...still deciding, but at least, there's still plenty of time to decide. I just wish my sisters are around to help me put it together as it's not fun having cramps and back pain lately.
