random phone pictures...

The highlight of my weekend was getting a few more things accomplished in Cullen's nursery!
I hung the curtains and valance all by myself! 
I climbed up onto the window ledge and used a drill.
It only took me 3 tries to get them hung perfectly.
My mom bought Culley the alligator at Ikea last weekend.
I think he looks perfect sitting up on the window ledge.
The gator has his baby in his mouth. 
I think I'll cut him out, I just don't want Gus to think it's for him.
He already claimed one little gator from Culley's toy bin.

Yesterday we had a blizzard, I hung out in bed pretty much the entire day.
I did get up to help Billy hang these letters. 
I have better pictures taken with our camera, I'll share them later this week.
The room is so close to being done!!

Our other spoiled baby Gussy. 
I clean up all his babies and he just digs them all back out.
I love this picture of him, licking his chops.

For Valentine's Day dinner I requested bacon cheeseburgers and sweet potato fries.
Billy cooked and brought me my plate with a bun he attempted to cut like a heart and a ketchup heart around the plate!
He is so creative and sweet :)

Yummy Valentine brownie treat from my hubby :)
Of course Gus thought it was for him. 
I shared a little bit of the frosting with him.

some other random info...

We are getting the ceiling re-painted on our main floor tomorrow.
We had an ice damn on our roof and it caused our ceiling to get wet and it left nasty water marks.
We thought our HOA would cover it since it was caused by the roof, they wouldn't.
I have no idea why we pay them such hefty monthly dues, they do pretty much nothing!
& 34 other units reported leaking!
Thankfully our insurance company is covering some of the costs.
Having a ceiling re-painted is expensive!
And it's popcorn ceiling (ick!), hopefully it doesn't make too much of a mess.

I have a doctor appt today so I'm only working until 2. Yay!
Can't wait to hear our little guy's heartbeat!
Not looking forward to hearing the # from the scale ;)

We had another blizzard yesterday, 10 inches of snow fell. 
The snow will probably be around until June...

I hope ya'll had a good weekend!!

Aw, what a good hubby you have. a ketchup squiggly heart, what more could you ask for?! :D

P.S. spaghetti squash is kind of hard to describe because it is different than regular pasta. It is sweeter tasting and really delicious in it's own way so I would definitely give it a try!

Great job on the nursery!! I love the theme :) That STINKS about your roof...sometimes I LOVE being a homeowner and other times (think, thousand dollar repairs) I wish I was still renting!!

I hope you have a great Monday :) I'm so glad mine's almost over!!

xoxo

Cullen's nursery is looking great! Hearing the heartbeat is the best! I don't know if anyone else has told you about this but go to Build-A-Bear and purchase one of their recordable sounds. Take it with you to an appointment to record Cullen's heartbeat and then go back to BABW and put the recording into a bear. You've a got a sweet keepsake! My mom runs a BABW and told me about this. I made one for me and her of Emma's heartbeat. I keep Emma's bear in her nursery.

Tara said...

Ok, your vday dinner looks delicious! And the nursery is coming together! The letters look great!

Tatiana said...

girly you are SO close to being done with everything and meeting your boy! I know that feels amazing! And how cute is your hubby to make you that dinner :-)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Jessica said...

Billy did wonderful with your VDAY dinner! Loved it! It made me smile, so I can only imagine what it did for you.
I'm stunned that the HOA would not pay for the ice damage. That seems off to me. Second Opinion????

Good Luck at the DR. today. Baby Cullen is so lucky in so many ways!

Melissa said...

Our dogs do the same thing!

Kerr said...

My HOA never pays for anything either. So frustrating! Glad you were able to get the insurance company to pay for some.

Marcy XOXO said...

ICK on the snow! Love the pics! Can't wait to see more... his little room is going to be sooooooooo cute! PS Billy is da bomb... how cute is he?!

MrsB said...

amen to HOA fees. they're ridiculous and always want their money, yet dont do anything when you ask. right now im in a battle with them regarding the last snowfall - they NEVER came to plow our driveway. so poor MrB not only had to shovel our driveways, but also had to shovel through 6' of piled up snow at the END of our driveway (thanks to the streetplow). jerks.

Brown Girl said...

Haha, the valentines plate is too cute and Gus with all his toys sounds just like our girls. As soon as I put them away, they drag them all back out. ugh. little brats. ;)

ajs {of MN} said...

Gwen said...

Billy is too sweet with his Valentine's foods. :) Love the photo of Gus and his toys. Is it wrong of me to want to see a photo of Gus pulling Culley around the house? LOL!! Love the look in Cullen's nursery!!!

HOA fees are ridiculous! They never do anythign but always fine you for stupid things! Ours used to fine us for parking on the street after 10, for keeping our garage open, and not painting our Dish on the roof. They are theives. ha!
