Our Sunroom

Last week we had our sunroom painted. All that is white used to be stained wood. It was quite a project and took four coats of paint! This weekend we were able to move all our furniture back and settle in. Mr. C. and I painted our cute little end tables, the white coffee table at the end of the room, and the white chair beside it. We also painted the blades of our ceiling fan white (they were dark brown) and it turned out so well! The room now has a beachy, cottagey feel.

In other news, my last pregnancy test came out negative!!!!! After 5 weeks, the HCG has finally gone away. I never thought I would be so happy to see one line on a test! Now I can enjoy feeling normal again. (Physically, at least.)

Saturday we went to our friends' house for dinner. She is 39 weeks pregnant and we haven't seen them since she's been pregnant. (They were the ones I found out about the same day I lost the first pregnancy.) Anyway, I was terrified of seeing them...but we had a great time! I am so happy for them, but it's difficult because of those m/c memories and because they got pregnant on their first month off birth control. I sucked it up and tried to put my own jealousy and pain behind me. I was proud of myself!

Love the colors and what a great view.

I'm glad you're getting back to normal. I still can't believe it took soon long to get out of your system.

I'm glad you finally have the HCG out of your system.

The room looks great. And good for you for going to your friend's house and trying to have a good time. I know how hard that is. I'm not sure I could have been that strong.

You should be proud of yourself. I am sure it is so hard to face the thought of someone else's pregnancy right now, let alone be haunted by memories.

I am glad you can finally get some closure. And it sounds as if you are being to do better.

Love your sunroom and the white trim!

I'm proud of you too, Kelly! I know that is a hard thing to do- I have similar situations that seem to come up often with all my friends who have recently had babies and with ones who are pg.
I love your sun room! It's so welcoming and cozy! Great job!

I love your sun room. It looks like it would be refreshing in the summer and cozy in the fall. Glad you are feeling better.
