This is it … we have nearly made it.
Four days until we close on our new house.
People keep asking if we are excited … that could the underestimate of the year.
I am screaming from the rooftops excited!
This week, carpet was installed.
See the three choices above … the lightest taupe is for the great room and entire upstairs. The decorative carpet is for the office and the darker taupe is for the basement.

|Future "Movie Room" … We shouldn't have told Emmett what this room was. |
He is now laying on the pressure to Brad to get a TV for this space right way.
Completion of this room will be a future project.
This will be the last weekly blog update until we move in … a few last photos … everything is nearly complete.
The kitchen is looking amazing …
The floors are being cleaned …
Our shoes feel right at home in the mudroom …
I can't wait for the basement bar to open up for Happy Hour …
The last painting project should wrap-up today. A last-minute color change to the sunroom …
And the best news of all … Baby J has seemed to have held out. I am going to lie-low all weekend in case he starts to get any ideas of an early arrival. Tomorrow marks the 37-week mark. I officially carried this little guy full-term!
The hardest part of building a house has been not being able to properly "nest" and get the nursery set-up. I have an entire corner (well, lets be honest, half of a room) dedicated to storing nursery gear for this little guy. It will be my first project once we get in on Tuesday.
Every Julkowski Baby gets a new and custom nursery. Emmett had a Baby Farm Animal theme … Fletcher had an Owl theme …
This room will be grey and taupe … combining fun patterns and giraffes and elephants.
Here are a few items that will go inside …
|How adorable is this Giraffe? Doesn't every baby need a 5-foot fall Giraffe?|
This is a gift from my dear friend Niki after I took a new baby pictures of her little girl last weekend.
Thank you so much!
