Bumpilicious

Hi everybody!  Let’s address this bump again, shall we?  I think bumpilicious is a slight exaggeration because there is a difference between attractive pregnant and “going to pop” pregnant.  I’m now getting to the point where people stop me on the street and in stores to make comments about how close I am.  Sure, I’m so close but still so far… Thanks to the heat and my extra baby weight, my feet have continued to swell beyond my wildest nightmares.  I rarely hold anything back on my blog Read more […]

To the Basement!

I know it’s been baby central over here at Drama Happens, so I figured we were due for another house post.  This time it’s not going to be a before and after type post but rather a, this is what our basement looks like with some stuff in it! We only painted the rooms on the top floor so all the color choices shown here were picked by the previous owners.  We had very limited furniture downstairs because we’ve never had 2400 square feet to fill before!  I’m dying to get new furniture for the Read more […]

HELLO FRIENDS, GUESS WHAT? I SURVIVED CAMPING, IT WASN’T SO BAD, AND LIFE IS GOOD, NO WAIT, LIFE IS GREAT! OK, I’m done yelling and my apologies because my title is misleading as I didn’t cry much on the trip, but it made me laugh so it stays! I am downright jovial about the fact that I’m done traveling (and moving) and that we’re at the point where we can just wait for baby boy to make his arrival.  I am lucky because camping went so well and was overall uneventful, which is definitely Read more […]

Talk to Me

“A quotation is a handy thing to have about, saving one the trouble of thinking for oneself, always a laborious business.” -A.A. Milne I absolutely LOVE words, and I’m assuming that is clear to everyone by now.  First off, I blog. If you don’t like words, writing, thinking faster than you can type, and over-sharing, blogging is probably not for you, but in my case, it fits my personality perfectly. I collect quotes and quotation books and have collected them since I was in high school.  I Read more […]

Who wants a sneak peek of the nursery??  🙂 I have a real How-To for you guys today, shocking I know!  Unfortunately, it only applies to those of you considering large-scale decals in your homes, umm this is just a guess but that’s probably not the majority of you, so most of you can read for pleasure. And if you ever decide to put up a decal and need a few tips, refer back to this post! (I took pictures of each step, eek!) The Mother was nice enough to come over and help with applying the Read more […]

BumpyLand

Hi friends, welcome to BumpyLand, not to be confused with Disneyland.  Magical Terrible, disgusting things happen here in Bumpyland that include but are not limited to heartburn and gross burping, constipation so bad that it makes my first trimester look easy in comparison, and swollen extremities so large they look scary. We finally have a working light switch in the babies’ room and the damaged closet door has been replaced!  We have art on the walls and almost everything has been put away Read more […]

Naming This Baby

Posted by & filed under Blogging, Drama Heavy, Pregnancy, The Scottish, The Wee One.

Before I go any further I want to sincerely apologize for even talking about names on DH because I’m probably going to keep The Wee One’s name off the blog.  Writing this post makes me feel like a big tease and maybe I’ll change my mind later on, but for now I don’t plan on parading him around DH too often (of course they’ll be pictures here and there!) but that means keeping his name private as well. The most commonly asked question once your bump begins to show is, “Have you picked a name Read more […]

Showered in the Cities

I realized that this shower update is long overdue so here I am finally getting around to sharing it!  Also, is it clear that Cities is short for Twin Cities?  In case you’re not from the great white north, Twin Cities represents Minneapolis and St.Paul and basically the general surrounding area of suburbs.  We call it the Cities for short.  #themoreyouknow The Mother and The Sister did a wonderful job putting everything together.  I know The Mother did a lot of prep work and was really trying Read more […]

This is Progress: Bedrooms and Kitchen

FINALLY.  I have a before and after post for you lovely people.  We’ll go slowly, a few rooms at a time.  This week I’m going to share our bedroom, the guest bedroom, the entryway/kitchen, and the black bathroom (which is the lamest of renovations because it’s scheduled for a full overhaul at some point in the future and the stuff we did is very minimal). You’ll  see that we don’t have the vent situation figured out yet.  It’s proving impossible to find the correct size so that’s one item Read more […]

Starting the week off on a semi-serious note, I decided it was time to do a mental health check-in post so I can remember how I was feeling during this time in my life (pregnant and buying a house).  I haven’t been quiet about my recent emotional ups and downs but I haven’t shared the most intense moments as of yet. Right now, I’m feeling good, if not great.  All of these events happened weeks ago or even a month ago now, so I’m far enough removed that I can write about them.  And guess what? Read more […]
