The bees have been busy

by Juliemara



With my pregnancy coming rapidly to an end and my energy level dwindling to almost nothing my sweet husband has been working non stop to get our house finished before the babies arrive. While we are hoping we have a few more weeks, this is week 35, 38 is ideal for cooking twins, we both know that it could be any minute of any day that we head to the hospital. While I am ok with it if they want to stay in, I will be very relived if they decide to come, um, yesterday. I am ready for all these pregnancy symptoms to start clearing up, the carpal tunnel is agonizing, the ice packs feel good while I hold them but they don’t offer any extended relief if I put it down and I still wake up from hand pain at night, several times. I am also the lucky recipient of Puppps, itchy red bumps that suddenly appear all over the skin and itch like crazy, day and night. I took a steroid pack to help and it did a little, but it’s still very itchy. And my belly has gotten so heavy, it is actually hard to carry around. There is no more rolling over at night to the other side, I now have to sit up and lay back down on the other side of I feel like I’ll be crushed by my own belly.

So while I know my aches and pains are OH SO Interesting, I still need to update you on other progress we have made around the house!


The Kitchen

It last looked like this

And now it’s done!

Wewith the whole stainless steel appliance trend. I love the extra large  sink, it’s not exactly what you would find in a resturand but it will be fun to  give the babies bathes in!

Since we have a Kosher kitchen (Jewish dietary laws) we have to have seperate sets of dishes for meat meals and dairy meals, so to make it easy and fun we went with square for dairy and round for meat.

I was worried we wouldn’t be able to reach the middle of the 5′ x8′ island, but it’s not a problem, we are loving the wide open prep space.

The aqua glass subway tile backsplash are finally in!

The resident chefs’ gadget drawer!

Come on over we’ll make you a fancy cup of coffee

A little peice of our past that we always want to remember, that was a fun day and the beginging of the rest of our lives.

      Tylenol, ice packs, wrist braces, milk with tumeric at night have all helped some, maybe they will work better for you.

    Julie, the kitchen is beautiful. I wish I could be there for a cup of coffee this afternoon! Hang in there, you are doing great keeping those babies in. I can’t believe it will be any day now. Love you!
