Wishes Granted

I've been looking forward to two things since last week: finding out the gender of baby, and seeing the stain and poly applied to our new floors.  As of Saturday, I got both of my wishes!  Here's our floor looking as polished and sexy as Ryan Gosling...who has really come out of nowhere as the hottest guy on earth, no?
Look at that wood grain, people! 
Gorgeous.  We are excited to continue our renovation with the installation of our cabinets on Tuesday!  As for baby.....
It's a boy!  And with that, all my nursery plans go out the window and I start over from scratch....

Oooh, congratulations on your little BOY!!!! Ha, I was the exact opposite - we were expecting a boy and were shocked to find out we were having a girl. So much for mother's intuition, right? :) So excited for you! (And the floors are TOTALLY gorgeous.)

Nikki said...

Congratulations! I've got 2 little boys, and they are precious. He will have you wrapped around his finger in no time.

I was convinced my second child was a girl and had mentally decorated the nursery in all pink when we found out he was a boy. But boys are pretty awesome too. :-)

I'm not sure which is making my heart melt more: the wood grain, or the baby! Congrats on both! I cannot WAIT to see your nursery plans. I'm counting on copying your and Kelly's (Tearing Up Houses)nurseries to a T when that time comes for us... no pressure.
