Uhhh...kinda just crept up on me!

Well I had a busy weekend! Since I paint for a job at school my pregnant sister in Rochester asked if I would like to paint the baby boy's nursery...and because I love to paint soooo much I agreed!! My brother, sister-in-law and nephews joined us on Saturday for a great weekend of family bonding (I'm sad that I didn't take more pictures of the actual bonding :( .The theme for the room is JUNGLE!!!!
This is the thing that hangs on the side of the crib
 We went to an indoor garage sale at the Armory, which was a change of pace since it's not even garage sale season...countdown about 2 1/2 more months until warmer weather!
Closet full of baby boy clothes...it will definitely fill up after the baby shower!

We thought the yellow color really made the quilt thingy pop! 

They are planning on putting a bamboo looking wallpaper on the bottom half of the wall (just so you don't think we forgot the bottom half!).
My sister and bro-in-law also did some work on the downstairs bathroom
I wish I would have gotten a picture of my sister's growing belly! She really has gotten bigger since I saw her a few weeks ago!

Along with being super productive with housework and painting, we planned my sister's baby shower, which will be the first weekend in April!!!!!! AND IT"S JUNGLE THEMED!!! My sis-in-law is going to make a animal print fondant cake kind of like this:
She's definitely going to do the cute saying on the tree too!

Oh and the little tidbit of information I forgot about...my Valentine's 5K this weekend around Lake Harriet in Minneapolis! I've been sooo busy with this semester starting up that I have to keep reminding myself that it's this weekend! The past few weeks I've been getting on the treadmill a few times a week for about 30 mins, but my running buddy Rebecca and I are thinking we're going to walk the majority of it (since she has been bogged down with projects and hasn't been running much).

I'm super excited for the 5K though! It's Valentine's themed and the event website says that you can wear different colors or signs designating if you are "single", "taken", or "it's complicated."

It shall be fun to participate in....and maybe I'll even find a Valentine ;)
