two things. that's alls i need before she arrives.

before i pop this baby out, i decided 2 things need to happen: i've wanted a new headboard for, oh, since we got married. they are so expensive and you definitely want to get the right one because of this. but if i think back to what i would have purchased when i got married and what i would purchase now, i'm really glad we waited and didn't spend any cash-money on this.

you can kind of see the old headboard here. it blends into the wall...look, look with your special eyes(have you seen that commercial?). btDubs, we've changed some things up in here to make it not so boring, so i need to do re-tour or something.

so there was this door in our basement that we inherited when we moved in. who leaves a pretty door? sillies. anyway, i love it and asked nato to put it as our headboard-- like a couple months ago.and he was like, don't you want to buy one? i'm all yes...but it cost one trillion dollars. so NO. plus, he went and bought me a new camera for mother's day and a push present so we have no money for that craziness. but ya, who invented the push present? that is genius. when nato has a vasectomy i'll throw him a "slash bash" and get him something nice for all his pain. and by nice, i mean, a bag of frozen corn. blahahaha.

so i was like, she can't arrive until the headboard is up, babe. and what do you know, that superman made this yesterday in 15 minutes because:
a) procrastinators prosper
b) he is motivated by a very emotionally volatile pregnant lady that happens to sleep next to him and
c) he is a genius because he simply screwed it into our previous headboard i made when we first got married. BAM.

anyway, the last thing i want to get done before i go into the slammer, i mean, hospital-and-subsequent-hermithood, is to get a pedicure.  my feet are nastola. like the kind you see in public and make a face at even when the person is standing right there. because they're that bad.

but i'm just going to make nato paint them instead. he'll do it because he's scared to say no. plus i can't reach them and it's painful to watch me try.  that is one good man, people. and really cute too, i must say.

mkay, so now i'm going to organize my pantry or something. and my fridge is nasty...so much to do, so little time.

  7. Dude you bust me up. Why didn't I think of slash bash when my hubs got slashed. Bahahaha.
    And seriously NATO is clever... a push present... I didn't get one, and I gave birth on Valentines Day.

  8. lovely! I've been wanting a door for my headboard for about a decade now, & what do ya know? I still don't have one- or any headboard, for that matter. our fifth anniversary is next week. maybe I can talk my hubs into some sort of headboard...? ;)

    Congrats on your babe! Can't wait to see photos! :)

  9. what the heck is a push present? seriously i have never heard of it before. I had to push for 2+ hours before my daughter made her tiny premature self out of my miniature birth canal. is it too late to ask for on almost 4 years later?

    Headboard is Amazing.

  27. Nice job, Nato! Can you make us a headboard? And did you grow a mustache since we last saw you?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I was going to say that I got jipped on the push present, BUT my hubs went out THE DAY I got induced and purchased for me a mini van. Procrastinators DO prosper! I guess that can count for all 3 deliveries :)

  29. LOVE the headboard! So creative! Congrats on the new baby tomorrow! Can't wait to see pictures!

  30. Ditto on the need for a pedi (hold your breath .... I have NEVER had one, gasp!). I will be thinking about you as you welcome your sweet new little wonder into the world tomorrow. And on a side note, hilarious that Mark has a pen in his shirt pocket. Only thing missing is the plastic pocket protector :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. LOVE the headboard. I actually have all the original doors to our house in the basement. Guess who's getting her craft on manana?? I'll be crafting while you be pushing.

    Hope the pedi was as wonderful as you hoped.

    Get that baby here!!! Prayers and happy thoughts to you guys tomorrow!!

  32. i can't believe you used my frozen corn joke and didn't give me props. stealer.

    and on a sidenote, a pedicure will not help those nasty toes.

    yes, i'm bitchy.
