10 Ways That I'm Currently NestingCasi Densmore-Koon
Well, with the good news I had at my last appointment, I am able to be up and around a little bit more. With common sense in mind, I’m finally able to get out of bed. Of course I can’t go jog around the block or anything with joy but I am thrilled to start getting some things off my never-ending to-do list. Nesting is in full-swing ladies. I am here to report that I think I have finally driven my husband insane. Poor guy. He has been home with me the entire pregnancy because of everything we went through and at times feels more like my assistant than my husband. And well now, since my to-do list is getting checked off, his to-do list is getting a little longer. Team effort right?
While I am not able to physically do everything on my things-I’ve-been-wanting-to-do-all-summer-before-baby-arrives list, I can manage the projects right? Hey, at least I am doing something! With some light shopping thrown in the mix of course.
After the jump, browse through the 10 thanks to nesting projects I am currently working on while counting down the weeks until our due date!
Command Center 1 of 10School for my two oldest girls will be starting in less than 3 short weeks. EEK! And this time, I need to be extra organized with 2 in school. Our 5 year old is starting Kindergarten and our oldest will be heading to 4th grade. With that said, I am in complete organizing chaos. I am feeling the need to get it together, STAT. The end of summer really creeps up on you right? Which is why this project is perfect to get things going! I want everything school related to have one easy place.

Renovation #1: My Home Office 2 of 10
Renovation #2: Our Basement 3 of 10We have begun renovating our basement and I mean, serious demo going on. I know, as if we don't have enough on our plates. But, the end result means even more space, stylish space, for us! So, I look forward to helping my husband organize the end result and of course, decorate it. That's the important part right?

Painting Stripes 4 of 10I've been dying to stripe big ole' black and white stripes down our hallway. Complete with a gallery wall. I thought it would be fun to chalkboard each door to match too! Just an added eclectic little touch so each of us can have fun decorating our own door. I am so thrilled I was able to hunt down a picture to show you my exact vision!

Decorate My Dining Room Table 7 of 10I know, it's the little things right? But, my table hasn't been decorated at all lately. It totally missed it's summer tablescape and only briefly was accessorized during a photo shoot at my house last weekend. I am ready to decorate for Fall!

Paint A Canvas 8 of 10Next week, I plan to head to Michael's pick up some paints and a few canvas to get back to painting. It's a fun way to be creative and ease anxious times.

Hello, Fall Curb Appeal 9 of 10I love Fall. The mums, the pumpkins and the crisp air. I am ready to start getting my curb appeal on and head back to the front yard which neglected my touch this summer since I was on bed rest.
