Bathroom Makeover Sneak Peeks

The bathrooms are 1000% done and we couldn’t be happier! It seriously makes me laugh that we truly thought they could be finished while we stayed up in Flagstaff this summer. We were gone for three weeks, and thought that we could get the bathrooms almost fully finished, if not fully finished. We knew pretty shortly after leaving town that it wasn’t going to be that fast. Our workers were amazing, and totally weren’t the hold up. It was the supplies, random issues popping up, etc.

So what we thought would take us three weeks ended up being 9ish weeks. Whoops! But guess what? It is SOOOO worth the wait. The Master bath is dreamy, and the kids bathroom is perfection too! ESPECIALLY since what we were starting with was so dang ugly, the transformation is truly beautiful!

For a refresher, lets check out what we were working with to start:

The kids bathroom was dark, dingy, and just around bad! We did NOTHING to it since moving in {to either bathroom actually} since we always knew it would need a FULL makeover in the end.

And here it is now! The star of the show for me is handsdown the trough sink. We got it on Craigslist, and it is literally perfect! Three kids now, three faucets, and plenty of room for them to get a little messy splashing with no worries!

Then there is our Master bathroom! The boys bathroom went through a lot of changes, but they were almost all cosmetic. Our bathroom though, well that was a WHOLE room overhaul. Moving closets around, knocking out walls, the whole shabang! Our bathroom now feels double the size, and 1000x the beauty!

Here is it now!! A massive walk in shower that is freaking the best for being able to throw the boys in with me and get us all clean in no time. We went with our favorite Moen products for the shower and sink faucets. It was the first time we have gotten to use Moen in our own home instead of just flips, and let me tell you- were hooked, and i’ll share more why later!

The clawfoot tub, well that thing is simply heaven. I cannot even count how many baths have already been taken in it. We went with a true cast iron vintage clawfoot tub instead of something new, and I am so glad we did!

I’ll be sharing the rest of the bathrooms details and shots as the weeks go on! So excited to show you it all, because they are now my favorite rooms in our home!!

39 Weeks Pregnant

39-weeks-pregnant

How far along: 39 weeks pregnant! Due September 27th. So beyond thankful to have made it full term!

Total weight gain: Unknown:) Read more about why I changed this here.

Maternity clothes: Maternity, stretchy, dresses, or no clothes at all at this point;)

Stretch marks: Not one new stretch mark this time around! Which is crazy since I am the biggest I have ever been I think AND the farthest I have ever been! But I am using a combo of old and new tricks to keep them away. The Mama Mio oil I have used with the past two pregnancies has kept me almost completely stretch mark free, so i’m sticking with it. But I am also adding in a drop of Gentle Baby and Frankincense Young Living essential oils.

Sleep: Napping every day, esp. since I don’t know when labor is going to start. Only getting up once a night to pee as well- so its actually been pretty good. I did have one night of crap sleep where I was up from about 330-530, but other than that its been good.

Best moment of this week: Getting a bunch of quality time in with my boys, eating out a lot, and soaking in these last days as a family of four.

Miss anything: Were SO close now that i’m just fine with anything.

Movement: Still crazy and so low.

Food cravings: For the first time, nothing really. WOAH!

Anything making you queasy or sick: nada!

Have you started to show yet: Haha this shouldn’t be a question anymore.

Gender: A sweet precious baby GIRL!

Labor signs: Last week my Doctor said I was 2cm dilated, 70% effaced, and shes at a -2 station. She stripped my membranes, and that didnt do anything…obviously haha. I have had about four false alarms where I have uncomfortable contractions, 5 minutes apart, for 2 hours and then they just STOP! When you google signs of early labor, I literally hit every one of them, and yet am still stinkin pregnant. It is surreal to me- NEVER did I think I would hit 39 weeks. Bray came at 38wk1day and Winston at 38wk3days, so this is nuts! I have another doctors appointment tomorrow, so we will see.

Belly button in or out: Its out, ALL the way now.

Wedding rings on or off: On!

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy:)

Looking forward to: Meeting this sweet baby girl soon! Thats basically all my mind is occupied with right now, so thats it:)
