Our house is starting to look like a home

This has been one very busy year and among getting married, remodeling a second home 8hrs away to sell, suffering the losses of our little ones and we bought a home in Feb., but we have not been able to afford to buy some of that "nice to have" furniture, it just wasn't a priority.  But now with our little one on her way here soon we decided that if we planned to drive the 3hrs to IKEA and 3hrs back to get some dining room furniture we better do it now, because we needed to take the truck. 

IKEA furniture isn't the best but we actually think it is just what we needed for now as this isn't our forever home.  We are having some friends over for dinner on Saturday so that will be our first true use of the table. 

We also purchases a buffet table for the dining room.  The color kind of blends in on this picture but the thought is we will paint this room at some point.

While at IKEA we saw a console table that would work well for our family room.  It gives us a place to put some of our many books and it kind of finishes out the room so we are not looking at the back of our couch.  As you can see we did find a mirror for above the fireplace (thank goodness it needed it badly).

Glucose Test:  So from what they tell me no news is good news and I have not heard anything from the Dr. and it's been over a week.  It's safe to say that all was good.  I have another Dr. apt on Friday but I am guessing that is just going to be the usual check in. 

I am thinking that my next post is going to be a brain dump of our "To Do" list of things to get done before Ms. Annabelle arrives...
