Basement Update - Theater Room... Progress

So this room started out looking like...

Lovely :)

And then... a little better

Jerry has always wanted his own movie room.
But not anything with movie theater seating... just somewhere we could hang out as a family... and veg out and watch movies.

So this past Christmas I got him a movie projector and screen... and it all began :)

We have been working on the basement on and off for the past few years... just an extra area that wasn't a necessity since the rest of the house needed so much work... but I am happy to say I love having this movie room down there. We have a lot of fun on family movie nights... eating popcorn and just hanging out watching movies... :)

This room isn't close to being done... however, it has made A LOT of progress over the past few months. It's still pretty plain. But it's functional. Jerry has a few things he wants to put down in here... and I promised I would let him do what he wants... (I'm a little worried)

Here is where the room is today..

To Do List

  • Put up door to storage area
  • Let Jerry decorate... try very hard to not wince and roll my eyes when he tries to convince me we need a cardboard cut out of... Rambo.
  • caulk and paint trim
  • cut in and fix the few painting mishaps down there.... 
  • buy rug for kiddos to play on
  • build shelf for Jerry's toys Memorabilia
  • coffee table 
  • build a long table along the backside of the couch with bar stools for kids to snack and watch movies 
  • build low media center for blue ray player that is currently just sitting on the floor :) 
So as you can see... The room still has quite a bit of changes to go through... and I am hoping we can get a few knocked off our to do list in the next few months. However, Hudson's arrival date is sneaking up on us... and realistically I am not sure what will get done and what will be pushed back.
But at least for now the room is functional... and we are loving spending weekends down there watching movies and eating popcorn!

Dealing with the final trimester....

So I remember telling Jerry, after we had Maddux... the second time... I would remember to take more photos. I would be better about documenting...

Well ... that did not happen ... again

Unfortunately, I am not one of those girls that finds pregnancy to be this beautiful... glowing.... experience.
Instead.... I feel huge, uncomfortable, emotional, and lazy.

Don't get me wrong. I am so super excited to be having this little boy. I literally cannot wait for Maddux to meet his baby brother... I am anxious and excited... and looking forward to it more than I can even put into words.
However, this experience is just.. hard.
Everyone wants to tell you their opinions. Whether you ask them or not. And being pregnant, you are already on emotional overload... so the tiniest things just... set you off.

I hate the weight gain. I hate it even more this time around because I remember how hard it was to get rid of it with Maddux, and I know how much work I am going to have to do this coming spring.
All I want is a bottle of wine and a platter filled with sushi.

We are less than 2 months from changing out family drastically. Adding another precious baby boy to our family of three. I find that the closer I get… the more nervous I get… the more I worry. It seems this time around… I worry about it more. When Jerry and I were getting ready to have Maddux I didn’t have the fear of what will this do to our marriage… or how this will affect us. But now… with a five year old… I find this thought hovering constantly. How will this change our dynamic? Will Maddux still be excited once he arrives? Will he still call him “his best buddy”?

I feel guilty… and anxious. This pregnancy has made me tired and lazy. Lazier than I have ever been. I let Maddux eat his dinner lately while watching TV rather than at the table… because all I want to do is lay down on the couch. And since it’s just me and him most nights… I don’t have the energy to argue with him over eating everything on his plate. I am not up running around lately… I’m not playing… the weather is nicer and the thought of playing outside makes me want to just curl up under blankets and take a nap. And it’s terrible. I feel like a terrible mom.

I have 6 weeks left with of one on one time with him… and I am spending the majority of it... with my feet up napping on the couch... Watching endless cartoons. I need to be better, take advantage of these last few weeks… get off my butt and spend some time with him. And I give myself this lecture every night after he is in bed… and then the next day comes… and I am exhausted. And I repeat the same mistakes.

On top of the guilt… I am anxious. And worried. And a thousand other emotions. I have had 5 years of one on one time with Maddux. I know him… really know him. I love the age gap already… because it gave me time. Time with him. And for me… it’s what I wanted. But it’s hard to imagine adding another one to the mix. I love Maddux will all my heart… how am I going to love another kid like this?

Lots of mom’s I know have had the same feelings… apparently its common. And they say… it just happens. Which makes sense right? I am not a girl that believed in love at first sight until I had Maddux. and even though I loved him before he was physically here… while he was in my belly. The day he was born… The moment that I saw him… was… in fact true love at first site. An overwhelming emotion… of instantly just worrying about this tiny tiny human…. More than yourself. It happens instantaneously. Its something you don’t understand… until it happens. And that is what I imagine happens the second time around…

I worry about wasting these next few weeks giving into being lazy. Because on one hand… yes, it is important to rest when you are pregnant… on the other hand… you want to spend time with your kid before you change his whole world.
I thought unwanted pregnancy advice was bad with Maddux… I can tell you what is worse… the second time pregnancy/family comments. I get so many negative comments on waiting 5 years. And like most of us know… these comments come from people closest to us. It’s just the way it goes sometimes. I get told that Maddux is going to have a hard time sharing… isn’t going to adjust to having a baby easily… etc. etc. I get told that “aren’t you worried they won’t be close since there is 5 years between them” And… before I even have this one here… in my arms “are you going to try again… this time for a girl?”

I hate these questions/comments. And you are already tired and crabby when pregnant. So these comments… no matter if they mean well or not… get to you. 

I don’t think Maddux is going to have a hard time sharing. So I chalk that up to… well they don’t know my kid like I do… so what does it matter. The other night Maddux went through all his toys in his room without me knowing… and put a pile of toys in the nursery. I didn’t notice the night he did it. So I asked him about it the following night… if he was playing in the baby’s room. And he said… “No mom, I was giving Hudson my baby toys… since I am a big boy I don’t need those anymore. But Ill share my big boy toys with him if he wants” So I'm not too worried about sharing. He shares with his cousins… no problem at all. I would worry if Hudson could wear the superhero costumes… but since he will be way too small to care… we wont have any issues there J

And as stated above… I chose this age gap. I always said I wanted my kids 4-6 years apart. It’s what makes sense for us… as a family. People make this choice off what works for them. So those people that choose a 1-2 year gap. Or 3 year gap… great! Or If you choose a 7 year gap… great! I really don’t see how people find this to be something to comment on. I know that a lot of people plan for their kids to be 2-3 years apart. Which is great. And my family members have had their kids this age apart... and its a great age difference. And I know they wouldn't choose any differently.
But different things work for different people. I wanted more time with Maddux. I have enjoyed having 5 years solely focused on him.... and spending this time undivided getting to know him. And for me... Financial reasons play a role. I want time between them... so I can plan accordingly as far as daycare pricing... college tuition's...etc, etc.  But again, people want to take your plan and compare it to theirs... and then tell you why their choice is right... but yours is wrong. I always choose to make decisions on what is best for us. I try very hard to not rush into things.... take my time... and not make a decision because that's what others do around me. And sometimes its hard... but with age... and experience... I have learned that what works well for others...doesn't always work for me. And I need to take a step back and focus on that.  The other day at work, a woman I work with Veronica asked me how old my first was… and I said 5.. and I braced myself for the comment of… “wow five years apart”… but instead she replied with “that’s the perfect age to add another one.” And it took everything out of me not to hug her and thank her ... for just being kind.

"Are you going to try for a girl" question. I really hate this question. No. I’m not. We might try for a third kid… we aren’t sure yet. We aren’t sure where we are…. But when we try for that 3rd. I will not be hoping for a girl over hoping for a boy. I love having a boy. I was scared at first when finding out about Maddux. Boys are foreign to me… they play different… they like different things.. and I worried  “what I would be able to teach or bond with when having a boy” and five years later… its amazing. Its truly amazing. I won’t always be the center of his world… but for now I soak up in the bond between mother and son. Because its amazing. I am told every single day that I am his beautiful princess… and I get bouquets of dandelions…. And kisses and snuggles… and he is so animated and creative… and I have loved getting to learn about superheroes and the complete wonder of all things dinosaurs. I can’t wait to do it all over again with the next one. Little boys love their Momma’s there is some truth to Momma’s boy and it’s something I wouldn’t trade for anything. I feel lucky that I get to have 2 boys… and if I tried for the third… I would be just as lucky to get another boy as I would be to have a daughter. I don’t “have” to have a girl. I just “have” to have… healthy happy kids.
I look forward to having boys... The bond between them... Maddux gets to teach his baby brother how to throw a baseball, play basketball, teach him everything he knows about super heroes. I cant wait to see the interaction of all things boy.... and I am excited to see Hudson as an individual. In what ways will he be like Maddux.... and in what ways will he be different. I cant wait to see these two boys... and their uniqueness from each other... just as much as I cant wait to see the likeness between the two.  And plus now with my 3 boys in my life... I am just solidifying my place as princess....

Just 6 more weeks... and I might start feeling like myself again... well an exhuasted version of myself. And if any of you want to visit in 6+ weeks and bring me a bottle of wine and plate of sushi... I think we might just be best friends forever.

Basement Update _ Wine Bar

I am finally back with a basement update!
After the holidays... and nursery planning... and pure laziness that comes along with being pregnant.. And this week we took a break from the nursery. We have one more area to complete... and I am still undecided so while I figure it out... We are back at it on the basement.

We left with the to list of... 

1. put the doors on the Ikea cabinets and buy hardware
2. paint the shelf that will hold the glassware
3. paint all the wood framing out the cabinets and wine storage
4. add a wood shelf to the bottom of each window
5. finish the rock wall
6. add another coat to the walls.
7. paint the window panes
8. put up trim and doors in the basement
9. add wine glass storage in the open shelves

The last update I gave you on the basement the wine bar was looking like this...

It was coming together... but still pretty much a GIANT mess :)

And now our updated list

1. put the doors on the Ikea cabinets and buy hardware
2. paint the shelf that will hold the glassware
3. paint all the wood framing out the cabinets and wine storage
4. add a wood shelf to the bottom of each window
5. finish the rock wall
6. add another coat to the walls.
7. paint the window panes
8. put up trim and doors in the basement
9. add wine glass storage in the open shelves

So after completing 95% of the original to do list... I am excited to show you the "almost" finished project which was heavily inspired by Jenna Sue

And just a quick reminder where we originally started at...

Which led to...

And now...

I love this little area. It is a great area to set up for when we have people over... or movie nights in the basement. The rock tile we added is by far my favorite focal point in the entire basement and I love how it turned out. 
We still have some small finishing touches to add to this space... but for now... we are calling this project done and moving onto the other rooms we have down here.
(Don't mind the dirty windows... once the snow melts... Ill get out there and clean them off)
We still need to style those shelves and add in a few things here and there which I am sure once the basement moves along we will get those things finished too... Right now the few glasses I had in a cabinet came out and just kind of... set there. randomly.
We also need to purchase some blinds... watching movies down here during the day is quite impossible. We need to be able to block out the light! 

We are currently trying to finish up the movie room and play room. 
At first we weren't going to include a playroom down here... but after a few nights of watching movies... we quickly realized that with soon to be two kids... this was unrealistic. We needed an area for them to play. 

We have two decent sized areas that need quite a bit of work... I plan on sharing some photos of where we are with them.. and our plans going forward. I am sure as our lives change and the boys get bigger this area will grow with us as a family.. but for right now... I realize an art station, lego station, and superhero station are necessities :) 

We are going on 2 years of working on the basement off and on. I am happy to say we are closing in on some decent progress for once. 
Do you have any projects you have put off? 
Do you get bored and move onto the next like we do? 
Starting a project and finishing it ... is one of the hardest things to do. Getting it like 90% there... and losing interest seems to be my trend. and going back months later and finally finishing up... :)

Hudson's Room - Part Three

I am back with another small update on Hudson's Nursery!

So I left off with showing you the reading corner Here.
And while I work on filling those empty frames I thought I would share with you the wall across the room from that area.

I am usually off and on with the whole accent wall thing. I went back and forth on painting Hudson's walls all dark (I'm on a dark wall kick lately) and I wasn't sure if that was the route I wanted to go or not. So we decided to just do one dark wall. And I LOVE it.

Above the crib I DIY'd some artwork. I searched all over Etsy and came up with 3 quotes that I liked... and then asked Jerry to choose.

He likes this quote because for some reason... it reminds him of superman. :)

So I got out some stencils and a couple plywood boards and started painting.
Its not perfect, especially if you get up close. But i ended up really liking the end result.
Jerry framed it out with stained 1x2 boards and then we attached them to the wall.

And you can see a glimpse of the green armoire we redid. I am hoping to put a few finishing touches on it and share this next week. A sneak peak of my favorite part.... the map knobs. Aren't they cute?

Up next we are working on the changing table area.

I am loving the idea of a simple shelf... or baskets as storage... or buntings... or mobiles.
I haven't completely decided what I wanted to do over there. A few inspiration photos I have collected are ...

I am really leaning towards the mobile or bunting above the changing pad... Hopefully we can decide on a plan this weekend. Which inspiration photo is your favorite?

Home Style - Surrounding yourself with things you love....

Once in awhile I get questions about inspiration for our home. And to be honest... my "home style" changes as we go. We are adapting to changes in our family... Maddux growing up and now... getting ready to welcome another little one. I have learned that our home has to work for us. 
I love surrounding myself with things that make me happy. Surrounded by smiles and memories. 
You won't walk into my house and find an expensive piece of artwork. Instead you will find that almost all of my walls are filled with photos... or quirky signs.... children paintings or doodles.... or some cheap DIY art that probably has a personal meaning behind it. We have a place to put toys in almost every single room. I embrace our family into our "home style"  My library shelves are filled with kid art and board games... and I wouldn't change it for one second.

I read a blog, Little Miss Momma and she did a post on "A Beautiful mess Happy Handmade Home" and it inspired me to purchase it. I love the message this book delivers for decorating. 1. Don't be afraid to mess up 2. Our ideas are only starting points and 3. If you love it, love it.

I realize that my "home style" is not everyone's cup of tea. I have a family member who hates white trim and white kitchens... and for me... there is nothing better than a home filled with white trim... and a big white kitchen to gather around. White scares some moms... I get that. But I find it easy to have white. I can see when its messy... and a quick wipe down takes care of it. For me, white feels clean... and is easy to keep clean and instantly brightens up a home

I especially love this book because it gives you a little quiz before you get started. To get you thinking... and I think if you were to walk through it... it could help all of us out.  

1. List all your favorite spaces (stores, restaurants, etc)

  • Urban Farmgirl - I love everything about this local store. I could spend hours there.... It is filled with painted furniture, old maps, wood letters, collections of antique items, chalkboards (complete with a local chalkboard artist...who is amazing!), and .... one of my favorite Rockford, IL pillows. This store is what I want my home to feel like... 

  • Arch Apothecary - I fell in love with the wood floors in this store. I still can't get over how much i love them... mixed in with giant mirrors with huge rustic frames... and then mixed in ... candles...and make up.. its amazing.  I want my future bathroom renovation to pull from this store... i want pretty glass counter tops mixed in with rustic wood pieces... and a stack of shiny lip gloss. If you haven't stopped by this store in Rockford... you should take some time this weekend and check it out. 
  • Edwards Apple Orchard - Fall is my favorite season and every year I look forward to the opening of Edwards. What is better than mums, pumpkins, apples, fudge, cider donuts, sweet corn salsa, and apple pie topped with cheese? 

  • Land of Nod - I normally cannot justify the prices of this store... although I love walking around and collecting inspiration for the kids bedrooms and playrooms. Ana-white often uses plans from Land of Nod in her kids collections.... and I love seeing it in a show room to get the full effect of what I could do with that furniture mixed in with colorful patterns. It's impossible to not be inspired when you walk through their showrooms...

  • Ikea - pretty much the reason I fell in love with gallery walls. And the amazing things they do with storage.... truly inspirational on how you can personalize the smallest things. I love the bright colors, organization, and budget friendly ideas. Right now our family is growing...and rooms evolve quickly and we are constantly changing so anything to help us budget for something we may outgrow in the next few years... is always a good idea. 

  • Jenna Sue Design - I pretty much want her entire house.... starting with her kitchen. Her house is absolutely stunning.if you don't follow her... You should start immediately. I would love to take her combination of white & grey mixed in with rustic charm - and then throw in my ridiculous amounts of family photos plastered all over the house... :) I love pretty much everything she is doing right now...and anxiously await the beginning of her next project. 

2. List the activities you envision doing in each room. 
  • Library - Blogging, reading, watching the kids ride their bike on the sidewalk, board games on the floor, Christmas traditions (our tree goes in the library), Christmas morning
  • Dining Room - Eating meals together, boardgames with the family, drinking wine and playing cards with friends, going over homework after dinner, family game nights, holiday get togethers
  • Kitchen - cooking with Jerry, baking cookies with the kiddos, breakfast around the island, morning coffee alone - before the chaos begins, Nala's favorite spot to hang out, 
  • Family Room - TV area, Kids and dog play on the rug, Maddux performs in front of TV, sitting by the fireplace, cuddle and watch movies
  • Hallway - chalkboard wall decorating, kid stuff drop zone
  • Loft - Play room, video games, reading books in the tent, Train table, Lego building, pretend play
  • Kid's rooms - Sleep, Desk/Art area, reading books, watching movies, sleepovers with cousins, stuffed animals take over their bedrooms, wrestling
  • Master Bedroom - cuddling, getting ready for the day, end of day TV watching, conversations, morning coffee in bed, sleep
  • Basement - Movie Theater room - family movie nights, popcorn, treadmill running, work out area, playroom kitchen, bat cave, pretend play, holiday storage, entertaining, parties, hosting area, family game nights
  • Back yard - swimming, playing catch, Nala chasing Maddux, garden, sprinklers, collecting worms, picking flowers
  • Office - Jer's place to study for grad school, blogging, shopping, printing 
3. Choose colors that make you feel something
  • Navy - This color works for everything, It's my favorite color in my closet and easily matches any accent color in my wardrobe or my home. It's my go to color
  • Yellow - Happy, Playful, Young
  • Turquoise - Trendy, Bright, Vintage feel
  • Grey - neutral. Love mixing this in with a bright offset color in my home or wardrobe
  • White - clean, crisp, bright
  • Kelly Green - this color... just always makes me happy. I would paint everything Kelly green if Jerry would let me. 
  • Black - dramatic, sophisticated, always in style
  • Fuchsia - feminine, playful, needed in a house filled with boys :) 
4. List 100 things about you. Things you love, quirks, aversions, memories, dreams, etc. 

  • Photographs_ Thunderstorms_ Sweatpants_ Messy Hair_ Scrabble_ Lip Gloss_ Action Movies_ Cuddling_ Messy Beds_ Maddux Giggles_ Good Morning Hugs_ Flavored Coffee_ Funny Coffee Table Books_ Fountain Cokes_ Disney_ Fall Boots _ Hoodies_ Margaritas_  Saturday Morning Family Cuddles in Bed Watching Cartoons_ Twinkle Lights_ Scared of Grasshoppers_ Summer Braids_ Kid Crafts_ Home-made Cards_ Cupcakes_ Greek Salads_ Subway Tile_ Ceramic Animals_ Gallery Walls_ Cocoa Wheats_ Summer Nights_ Lighting Bug Catching_ Musty Basements_ Barn Wood_ Apple Pie With Cheese_ Paper Garland_ Kids Books_ Sunday Morning Breakfast after Church_ Running_ Tiny Tattoos_ Weekends with Girlfriends_ Family Game Nights_ Niece Sleepovers_ Farmers Markets_ Star Wars_ Superheroes_ Work skirts_ V-Neck T-Shirts_  Starbucks_ Handprint Kid Art_ Hot Chocolate_ Tulips_ Rocky Beaches_ Watermelon_ Green Smoothies_ Fresh Highlights_ Weekend Living Room Forts_ Summer T-ball _ Chicago Cubs_ Heels_ Tim McGraw_ Throw Pillows_ Flannels_ 80s Rock_ Board Games_ Netflix Marathons_ Sprinkles On Ice Cream_ Fuzzy Socks_ Kids Singing_ Red Vines_ Paul Rudd_ Picnics_ Champagne_Shopping With My Mom_ Pinterest_ Personalized Jewelry_ Building Furniture_ Family Get Togethers_ Laughing so hard, I snort_ Baseball T-shirts_ Aviators_ Nala Kisses_ Road Trips_ Window Seats_ Hydrangeas_ Pineapple_ Instagram_ Home Movies_ Smores_ SidwalkChalk_ All things Christmas_ HomeGoods_ Sledding_ Sweet Tea_ Big Hats_ Euchre_ Candles_ Being Barefoot_ Dandelion Bouquets From Maddux_ Smiling

I do believe in surrounding yourself with things that make you happy. So walking through this exercise is fun and helpful. I love pinning beautiful inspiration on pinterest... but when it comes down to it... I need to find design ideas that work for us. We are slowly figuring that out as we go. Our first house has been quite the adventure and I look forward to sharing our projects and ideas along the way. 

Where do you gather inspiration from?

Hudson's Nursery Part Two - The beginning of a gallery wall

Last week I left off with the reading corner we put together. As of right now, Maddux wants to be involved with everything to do with this baby. He will tell me he will feed him, read to him, sing to him, etc. So I thought this corner with the glider... would be a good little reading nook for us to do that. Maddux picked out all his favorite books to put in his brother's room, to share... and I can't tell you how happy it makes me to see him so excited for his "new best buddy" (his words)

So the wall space above the bookshelves were looking a little bare.
So we decided to put in a gallery wall. After a trip to Michael's I decided to go with the Lexington frames they have there.
1. Because they were 50% off and
 2. We haven't done a gallery wall with black modern frames yet. So I liked the idea of something new.

A lot of people I talk to are nervous about gallery walls. I love them, I think they are easy and make a huge statement. But I love surrounding myself with things that make me happy... and right now filling these frames with photos of my favorite memories and inspirational quotes.... nothing sounds better than that. I don't put a lot of planning into these. I wish I could tell you I sit down with a plan. I look at the space... and run to the store... I try and concentrate on large frames because, when scrolling pinterest at all hours of the night. The one thing the gallery walls I pin have in common are large frames.
Then I start with my largest frame and just work out from there. One frame at a time.

This past weekend Jerry started putting them up while I would say... "no... a little higher.... no... I don't like that... take that down" for about 3 hours :) He's a good guy :)
We  I finally settled on a layout of frames mixed in with a few animal heads. .

The frames are still bare. I need to fill a few of them, but a few I will leave empty because Hudson's baby photos will fill in quite a few of these eventually.
I'm still searching Etsy for some cute personalized prints also.

But here is the reading corner... all filled in with frames.

I might fill in a few more above the chair and bring them down lower. We aren't sure if we want these frames in reach of tiny children though.

I think my favorite part is the animal heads. I think I could fill a whole wall with them if I had enough!

Thanks for stopping by, Cant wait to share the other side of the room!
Getting exciting, Hudson will be here in just 2 short months!

25 Things

1. I am finding it harder and harder to concentrate.

2. I think pregnancy has given me adult ADD.

3. I am not one of those people who just... "love" being pregnant.

4. Its uncomfortable. And exhausting. And nothing fits.

5. Then you have to go buy clothes that you will only wear for a few more months. Which is a huge waste of money.

6. I'm a little nervous this time around. Probably more than the first.

7. Maybe not nervous... well partly nervous... and partly anxious.

8. What will he look like? Will he look like his brother? Will he look nothing like him? Will they be similar? Will they be opposites? Maybe this one will be a better sleeper... and maybe less picky? At least I can hope...

9. How will Maddux do with a new brother? Sure right now he is ecstatic... Will that last? Will he get jealous? What can I do to to help him with this transition?

10. I can't for the life of me finalize my plan on the nursery.

11. This might be the hardest room we have redone yet.

12. Only because I keep changing my mind.

13. We literally painted the whole room. For me to look at my husband and say... I don't like it... I want to change it.

14. He didn't leave me over it. He might have rolled his eyes. But the next day... he helped me re- paint it.

15. Because he is amazing.

16. I'm lucky to have a husband that lets me decorate and doesn't get upset when I decide... "I changed my mind"

17. Speaking of decorating, I finally bought new furniture for the library.

18. Once that is delivered, I cant wait to share it with you. I am so excited.

19. Did I mention that we have to replace our windows this year? Seriously..

20. Have you sat through window quotes? They aren't fun.

21. I know it will be worth it though. Completely worth it.

22. Now trying to fit in when to pay for all new windows, and have a baby all around the same time... talk about fun.

23. That's life for you though. I guess.

24. Just have faith it will all work out.

25. Speaking of faith, what did you all give up for lent? I decided fast food. Because, I know me.. and now that I am reaching that "I am always hungry" phase of pregnancy... fast food is easy. And I don't need to eat that junk. So hopefully this will keep me out of the drive thru line. :)

And because no post is complete without a photo. Here is Maddux...celebrating his beloved stuffed animal puppy "Candy Butt"'s birthday with all her friends.
