Baby's nest #2 - Creating a pretty big nursery by transforming the kitchen ...

In my last post, I told you about our project to move our bookcase from the guest-room (nursery to be) to the kitchen. So guess what we did yesterday night ? Yes, we gave our kitchen a great makeover just by moving some furniture, and I absolutely LOVE the result ! And now the nursery looks so much bigger (this baby is already spoiled ...). Dans mon dernier post, je vous ai parlé de notre projet de déplacer notre bibliothèque de la chambre d'amis/bureau/future chambre de bébé vers la cuisine. Alors devinez ce qu'on a fait hier soir ?...

Baby's nest #1 - Getting the place organized (réorganiser l'espace avant bébé)

Another great thing about expecting (besides eating a bit more than usual without feeling guilty - especially when your cravings are mostly clementine/orange related, so I guess it's ok ...) is that it makes you reorganize the entire home to make room for the baby, and it's a great time to get organized and to take advantage of every inch available in the place.Une autre joie inhérente à la grossesse (au delà des fringales souvent assouvies sans scrupules, d'autant qu'en ce moment, ce sont plutôt des envies d'agrumes, donc ça va ...)...

1st time in my life that I'm proud of my belly !!

I don't usually feel so great about my body, but ever since I got pregnant, I don't care anymore about my curves, I even enjoy them ! Of course, I use many lotions and oils to prevent stretch marks ...Je ne suis d'habitude pas particulièrement à l'aise avec mon corps, mais bizarrement, depuis je suis enceinte, mes courbes me gênent beaucoup moins ... mieux que ça : j'en suis fière ! Bien sûr, j'applique religieusement des crèmes anti-vergetures au cas où, car tout ça pousse très vite ! I started showing quite quickly, and now... [Lire la suite]

Welcome 2010 !! Bonne année !

I wish you a great new year, full of projects, laughs and joys ! I hope you had a good new year's eve ; Je vous souhaite une excellente nouvelle année, pleine de projetsde rires et de joies ! J'espère que vous avez passé un bon réveillon.

Big big big news for Christmas !

Hello everyone !   I wanted to explain why I've been away from the blog for quite a while ... Actually, I'm pregnant !! Je voulais expliquer mon absence du blog depuis quelques mois. En fait, je suis enceinte !!   We've found out in the middle of October, I couldn't believe it, even if we were trying. I've been a little bit anxious at the beginning, as a lot of 1st time mothers must be, but after the first sonogram, I felt relieved and happier than ever. Nous l'avons appris courant octobre, je n'en croyais pas mes... [Lire la suite]
