Sleep, you elusive fiend.

I knew when we started trying for a little bundle of joy that there would be rough spots along the way. Morning sickness and lack of sleep were certainly expected, but boy, not to this extent. Never had I expected to still find my head in the toilet every other day (at least!) past 15-16 weeks, let alone while in my third trimester! Baby boy certainly let's it be known when he doesn't like something!

And sleep, oh my. I'm up until 5-6am most mornings. It's the strangest thing I've ever experienced; even when I sleep I never actually feel rested.

Is anyone else experiencing this or have you experienced this before?

The weekend was pretty much a bust, depending on how you look at it. We stayed out our current house, so nothing on the to-do list got done, but we did do some shopping and I picked up the blue glass bottles I had my eye on at TJ Maxx for the beachy theme I'm going with at the new house.

Today was seriously warm, the high was 81 degrees! We decided to go and find a couple of caches (geocaching is likes giant treasure hunt, it's so much fun! Go to geocaching.com and look it up if you're interested. You do need either a handheld gps or a smartphone with gps capabilities. C:geo is the best app I've seen for Android.) but I gave up after finding one, it was waaaay to strenuous for this mama to be. I had forgotten how easily winded I get these days. (:

So, we didn't do what we had planned to, but we still had a good weekend!

What did you guys do this weekend?

Mood Board.

So, I'm watching Love and Other Drugs and scouring the internet for some inspirational photos for our new home.  In case you're wondering, the movie is absolutely adorable; I fell back in love with Jake Gyllenhaal within the first five minutes. (:  And, Anne Hathaway's hair looks really cute all curly.

Anyway, here are the inspirational photos I found.

I dig the cool tones.

 How adorable is that bird mobile?

Simply beautiful.  If only my bathroom was bigger!

I have had my eye out for the perfect dresser to restore.  I love the shade of yellow they used here. (:

The plan is to do our master bedroom in greys and whites with touches of yellow.  I really love the throw pillows and comforter/duvet here!

I'm up in the air between leaning ladder bookcases and floating shelves on either side of our fireplace.  Opinions?

This weekend I'm going on a hunt for unique photo frames to paint white to do something cute like this.  I plan to use the fabric I bought a few weeks ago...

....along with these:

I simply adore this painting with the Ingrid Michaelson lyrics.

Here's hoping our baby boy ends up with a book collection like this!  And, how cute is this striped ceiling??
