Even Miracles Take a Little Time

  Well baby berto is still taking her sweet time and cooking away. I just wanted to share a little update with you. We had a doctor’s appointment yesterday and I’m currently 1 centimeter dilated and 70% effaced. So making some progress, but still not really a good indication of anything. And P.S. those internal exams are NOT fun. Nope. No thank you. Our midwife gave us the option to induce today or wait another week until next Friday, which… Read more »

DIY Sawhorse Desk

New year, new logo, new makeovers! Here’s how it works; every month I get together with some fabulous furniture flippers and we all create a piece of furniture based on a certain theme. And this month is Shades of White.

2016 Thoughts

  I thought long and hard about this post. As the new year begins, everyone is sharing their goals, or word of the year or 43829 ways to get organized. While all of that is on my mind, there is certainly one thing that pushes all of that to the side. Baby Berto. Of course I have goals for this year and things I want to accomplish with this blog, but instead of rushing around trying to squeeze in a… Read more »
