Nesting Syndrome

This weekend Ben and I came out of the closet...after...we spent a lot of time cleaning them out!

I guess the nesting syndrome has hit. Ben seems to have caught it as well. Ever since seeing our little boy via the 4D ultrasound, we have kicked it into overdrive to prepare for his arrival. Ben put together 4 bookcases to help with organizing our current closet clutter and things are really starting to look great!

He has also started trimming out the nursery in the perfect blue color!

While I am excited about getting the nursery done there are also a lot of other things on my to do list. Here are the things I would like to get done before Asher makes his debut:
  1. Move former Bama room to ??? (I guess the future...I don't see us having an extra room for this for awhile) - CHECK!
