Hey there frugal followers!  We hope you are all enjoying your summer... well, what's left of it anyway!  Crazy how time flies!  We can't believe our teachers go back on the 12th... that's 10 days away!  YIKES!  I will be starting my maternity leave at the beginning of this school year so my summer will be prolonged a little bit... but it's not like having a newborn in the house is in ANY way a "vacation"!  I have to admit (and I'm sure I'm the only one who feels this way) but this has been one of the longest summers of MY LIFE!  Usually my summers fly by, but this one seems to be creeeeping!  We are still anxiously waiting on little Tyler Matthew to make his debut.  His official due date was July 31st... and here I sit on August 2nd with no baby in my arms!  I feel like I've been doing nothing but sitting and waiting on his arrival!  I had really convinced myself that he would come early... I was thinking the middle of July.  But July came and went, and now we're in August!   I feel like I wake up everyday thinking "today could be the day" only to find out that we're still playing the waiting game!  I've tried spicy food, walking... you name it, I've tried it!  On a positive note, the doctor said he is head down and ready to go, we are just waiting on something to happen!  I tell you what though, there is nothing more uncomfortable than the last month of pregnancy!  TRUE STORY!  I'm too uncomfortable to even go shopping... shocking, I know!  I have managed to get out of the house a little bit and was able to spend several relaxing days by the pool with my good friend Kelly, but other than that it's been pretty uneventful around here.  I guess I should embrace the quiet and calmness because all that is about to change! 

On a more school related note, Melissa and I stopped by our classrooms last week to drop off a few things we had picked up over the summer.  I had all intentions of making it a quick trip BUT before I knew it, my husband was calling me wondering where I was!  We had made dinner plans with his mom and grandma and dinner time was fast approaching.  My "quick trip" had lasted almost 8 hours!  I don't know about you, but I can ALWAYS find something to do in my classroom! haha  Here are a few pictures of what we walked in to!  The custodians actually did a great job cleaning our rooms this time!  Last year, we were greeted by tons of creepy crawlies (ewww!) but this year they were sparkling clean!  I know that part of living in Florida is dealing with the bugs, but they are still my LEAST favorite thing in the whole world! 

After a bit of reorganizing and talking (mostly talking) Melissa and I took a break to have lunch...
Don't judge!  Gummy bears, sour patch kids and Munchies make for a delicious lunch!  I know you're jealous!  We ran across the street to the gas station for something to drink and of course, the pregnant lady had to grab all of her favs haha  After binging on junk food and catching up on summer happenings, we got back to work in our rooms!  Although our classrooms are side by side, they don't connect... meaning, we can't talk to each other while we're working (which sometimes is a good thing so we actually get stuff done haha)  We've joked about asking our maintenance man to install a secret window or door that will connect both our rooms but I know that will never happen.  So although they are a work in progress, I'd say our rooms are off to a good start! 

The very next day, we had people come and install carpet in the nursery so Matt and I could finally put his room together!  Here's a quick pic of the "before".  We had already painted the room a light gray color but we decided that carpet would be better than the hardwood floors that were in there.  And by "we"... I mean "me". Matt couldn't care less about the floor, ha, but thankfully he agreed with me anyway! 

After the carpet was installed we could get busy placing and organizing all the furniture and décor.  It's not quite finished, but here is a glimpse of how it's coming along.  I still have a few things to hang and put up but it is definitely ready to welcome our little man! 

When Tyler finally decides to enter this world we'll be ready!  The anticipation is driving me crazy!  I have heard from so many people that your first child will usually come late, but I must admit I've never been that good at waiting! haha Especially, not for something this exciting!  Fingers crossed he decides to make his debut soon!!!  If not, we go to our next appointment on Tuesday and we'll discuss being induced!  We hope you are all making the most of your summer as it quickly comes to an end!  Hopefully I'll have some exciting baby news to share with you next time frugal followers!
