Week 36 - Here We Go...

Greetings! I have a few sneak peaks for you of the nursery, as well as an updated belly shot. This is my final week at school & I must say, I'm awfully sad. Normally on this blog you would see a countdown starting for the end of the school year, right about now. This year, I'm ending sooner than everyone else & it feels weird & not something that I'm excited about at all. Wednesday will be my last day with my students, then I have parent/teacher conferences Wed. night & all day Thursday. That's it. Thursday - will be my last day. So strange. So...no countdown to summer this year - I'm just hoping these next few days go quickly, as I'm dreading them greatly.

That being said - here are the sneaks of the nursery (which will *hopefully* be finished by this weekend) & a week 36 baby belly:

Yes, I am as tired as I look... :) (Notice the wall & adorable chair-rail behind me - part of the sneak peek)  PS Does anyone know how to spell chair-rail?

The curtain & curtain rod...

And my adorable diaper bag. Any guesses where it came from? :)


And a HUGE thank you to My Andrea & My Nicole for all of their help with the nursery, painting, organizing, you name it - they did it. Thanks to them, I am *almost* ready for baby...

I think you look great ... seriously, I miss the belly (well you too) already!

So happy I could come and help get the "nest" ready for little miss. I can't wait until I see you again and I can snuggle her all day!

Lots of love and prayers for you this week! As much as you love your current job, you're changing to the best job in the world!

**MWAH**

I will be praying you can enjoy these last couple days and then the days of "rest" to follow before little Ellaroo makes her debut! 4 weeks! Can you believe she's almost here?
Her room looks so cute and perfectly girly! Can't wait to see the rest!

Good morning mama-to-be. Ella's room looks delightful. Your mattress misses you...it's currently sitting on its side in the hall, patiently waiting for me to finish with the library tea.
Looking forward to seeing you all the first of April. Have a peaceful week.

That chair rail and patch sure look great. I did n know those two girls new how to re-texture a wall and cope the chair rail. Either way, wow!

Someone needs a "new" keyboard.
