the great wall

So I bet several cat owners share my opinion. One of the most difficult things about owning a cat, is figuring out where to put the nasty litter box. The cats need access to it, but you don't really want it in a high traffic area.

When we first looked at buying our house, the previous owner kept her cat box in the closet in the family room. Thanks, but no thanks. I'll pass on hanging out with cat poo while I'm watching TV. Since we've moved in the cat box has moved between the guest room and the soon to be nursery. Well it isn't really awesome to have the cat box in with your guests, and it most surely isn't ok to have a cat box in the baby's room. So what do we do?

Well our house does have a basement, and up until yesterday it was a garage entry basement. Our solution to the cat box problem? We built a wall in our garage so our basement is now an inside entry. Previously there were two ways to get into the garage... you could go through a door in the dining room, or one in the family room, which just happened to pop out right by the basement.

In the garage before we built the wall, looking at the door coming from the family room:

And here is the man after he got all of his studs put up:

And here is the wall after the drywall was up:

So it isn't currently the prettiest thing. But it is functional. Next step? Install a pet door so we can keep the family room door closed while still allowing our little guys to get down the stairs to eat and poo :o).

the places we go...

First I have start this post off with a conversation Chris and I had today...

: I want to write a blog post today, but I'm not sure what to blog about.
: hmmm, I don't know...
: Well I thought about posting about a project I'd like to do for our family room. I want to make a map for the wall that we can stick pins in. But every time I post a craft or project I want to do I never actually finish it. My blog is going to turn into a bunch of posts with other people's projects that I never get around to trying.
: Well your blog is called the domestic wannabe isn't it? :o)

Valid point Christopher, valid point. In that case, here is my post about the map I want to make, but may never actually get around to.

Chris and I have this goal, to visit each and every one of the 50 states together. I think right now we are only up to like 5 or 6, but eventually we hope to hit the 50 mark. To track our progress I thought it would be fun to have a large framed wall map in our family room, so we can put pins in the different places we visit.

Below are some pictures of the map that Leslie G. created to track her and her husband's travels. You can also view her blog post where it was featured on The DIY Show Off.

I'm having a hard time deciding if I just want to do a US map, or if I want to have a world map instead. For Chris and I's little project we would really only need a US map, but I have traveled out of the country a teeny bit, and thought it would be fun to put pins there too.

What do you think?

'09 holiday decor

My Christmas decor didn't turn out quite as I'd hoped this year. I just never got around to putting everything out, and I was missing a few things but couldn't find them in the stores. Hopefully next year (who am I kidding, I'll have a kid!) I will do a better job. For now, this is what I have to show!

In all honesty, this little silver tree is one of my favorite decorations this year. Its simple, and just sitting on my bathroom counter, but I think it is so cute!

I was paranoid that the cats would steal this snowflakes from the guest bedroom. They aren't very heavy and could easily be knocked over. Surprisingly the snowflakes have stayed put since the day after Thanksgiving.

Thats about all I have to show this year. I'll leave you with this lovely shot of Chris and I after we opened presents with my family Christmas morning. No, I do not generally wear shades in the morning, they were a gift!

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

bump check: 25 weeks

Crazy what a difference ten weeks makes. The picture on the left was taken at 15 weeks, when I was just first starting to get a little itty bitty bump. The picture on the right was taken today. I apologize for the sweats. After the holidays and the four hour drive in this wonderfully snowy weather there was no way I was putting on cute clothes for a headless photo :o).

This week our baby girl should be about 13 and half inches from head to heel, and weight about a pound and a half. She is finally starting to put on some baby fat so her skin doesn't look so wrinkly. Supposedly she is also starting to grow some more hair, and it is sporting a discernible color and texture.

Baby J got some very fun little things for Christmas. From her mommy (and daddy) she received a cute little owl onesie that I found on Etsy, and a blankie from Pottery Barn. Her grandma got her an extremely cute dining set (plate, bowl, sippy cup, etc.) that also featured some owls, and also the book "Why Grandpa Rides a Harley". From her auntie she got some super cute KU booties and a hat, a KU burp cloth and a book about Big Jay. This poor little girl is going to be brainwashed to love KU and owls from the very beginning!

How far along: 25 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I haven't stepped on the scale in a while...
Maternity clothes: do you think that stomach would fit in anything else?
Stretch marks?: none yet
Sleep: it comes and goes
Best moment this week: ordering the nursery furniture

Food cravings: onion rings
Gender: girl
What I miss: holiday cocktails
Milestones: only 15 weeks left!

sleepless in... Omaha

(this was written at 6:30 am, but the iPhone wouldn't play nice...)

So as I was coming home from work yesterday I was on the phone with Chris, and he informs me that if we didn't leave last night to drive to Omaha, we most likely wouldn't be going. He wasn't about to risk driving in the bad weather. Well I wasn't going to miss Christmas with my family, so after getting my dad to add a night to our hotel stay, calling my boss to make sure it was ok if I didn't come in, and canceling my hair appointment for the evening, I tossed my clothes in a bag, grabbed a pillow and a blanket and we were on our way.

We got in at about 10 pm, watched TV for a little while, and were asleep by 11:30. Unfortunately I must have rolled onto my back around 5 or so this morning, and that combined with a baby pressing on my lungs and the drainage from my lovely cold, I woke up coughing and slightly unable to breathe. I tried for another 30 minutes or so to go back to sleep, but it wasn't happening. And I was just keeping Chris awake. (No he wasn't complaining, I just feel guilty)

So here I sit with my iPhone and my 'What to Expect' book on the floor of the hotel bathroom trying to entertain myself until a more reasonable hour. Lame.

Hopefully a little bit of Robitussin and my fleece blanket will make tonight go a little bit smoother...

bump check: 24 weeks

24 weeks. Really? REALLY?!? I seriously can't believe it. That means there are only 16 weeks left until my due date. And personally, I'm hoping she comes slightly earlier than expected, which means I would have less than 16 weeks to go. That is crazy.

Making it to 24 weeks is a pretty big deal in my book. From what I understand, 24 weeks = viability. No, no one really wants their baby to come into the world only having been baked for 24 weeks, but at this point there is a chance she could make it outside my body. I'd say that is a pretty big accomplishment.

Baby is now about a foot long, and still weighing just over a pound. Supposedly she gained about 4 ounces in the last week. Her brain is growing quickly now, and her taste buds are continuing to develop. Her lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help her air sacs inflate once she hits the outside world.

I can definitely tell that our little one is getting bigger and stronger. For the first time last night, Chris could literally see my belly moving from across the room. He is still the only one besides me who has felt the baby move, but I'm hoping soon she'll be moving often enough and um, big enough? that other people can feel it.

How far along: 24 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +8 pounds
Maternity clothes: yep
Stretch marks?: still none
Sleep: the cough I've developed isn't helping the sleep situation
Best moment this week: Seeing my belly move like crazy
Movement: its getting stronger!
Food cravings: onion rings
Gender: girl
What I miss: margaritas
Milestones: reaching viability

chicken and broccoli alfredo

This is by far one of the easiest recipes I have made. Although it wasn't the most incredible dinner I have ever had, it was definitely good, and something I would make again.

The recipe was found on, drumroll... :o). Check it out here. We seriously spent more time waiting for the water to boil for the pasta, than we did actually cooking the meal. When we make the recipe again we plan to add more broccoli, and also probably some sliced mushrooms. The recipe doesn't necessarily taste like alfredo to me, but alfredo isn't my favorite thing, so I was ok with that.

Hope you enjoy!

bump check: 23 weeks

Personally, I think the belly growth has really slowed down... which is definitely ok with me! I was really nervous based on how much my body changed between the 16th week and the 20th, but since then I feel like my belly has just been rounding out a bit more, and maybe moving a little higher. Not necessarily getting too much bigger. I'm sure I'll have another growth spurt at some point, but for now I can deal. Plus the semi regular pain in my ligaments makes me think they are stretched far enough!

Our little girl should be a little over 11 inches long, and weighing in at just over a pound. (The growth specifications on the internet become a lot more vague after 22 weeks...) says that my baby can now really sense movement, so I should turn on some music and dance around. Her movements are becoming strong enough that you can see them happen on occasion. Also, because her ears are getting more sensitive, loud noises she is hearing now (such as the vacuum cleaner) most likely won't faze her outside the womb. I however, find that hard to believe!!

I had my monthly OB appointment this week. Nothing too exciting to report, blood pressure was fine, weight gain is fine, no crazy symptoms or terribly horrible pain. I was able to get the H1N1 vaccine, something I wasn't really planning on. The nurse mentioned that they had some available, so I took her up on the opportunity. I also scheduled my glucose tolerance test for my following appointment, so I got to go home with what the nurse described as orange flavored liquid sugar. Yipee, I can't wait to chug it next month. :o)

How far along: 23 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +7 pounds

nursery progress

Well I'm not sure you can say there has been actual progress on the nursery. It still looks like this:

However, I have selected some items and really started to think about the overall look of the nursery. Here are the fabrics we plan to use to make the crib bedding. The fabric on the left will be for the crib skirt, the middle fabric will be the outside of the bumper, and the fabric on the right will be the inside of the bumper. I hope to just buy some yellow crib sheets at the store.

And here is the nursery 'mood board' thus far (click the image to view it larger). I have ordered and received the yellow curtains from Urban Outfitters and I LOVE them. They are going to be so cute. I just need to pick out a curtain rod and get them hung.

The gray rug is from Anthropologie. I hope to have an owl mobile custom made in colors to match the nursery, and I want to paint a large letter (whatever her first initial ends up being) to hang above the crib. The crib we picked out right now is from the Munire Urban Collection. I know which glider I would like (the Quinn chair by BestChairs) but I'm not sure what color I want to have it upholstered in. I am hoping they have either a blue or a green fabric that will match what is in the crib skirt. We figured blue or green could work later on in a boys nursery.

That is all for now! When some real progress gets made I'll let you know :o).

beautiful curtains

Semi recently we hung some curtains (found at Crate and Barrel) in our guest room. I absolutely love the way they look!

Now I just really need a headboard...

bump check: 22 weeks

Due to some technical difficulties this post is coming to you just a teeny bit late. And secondly, I apologize that these stripes are a bit intense on camera. I thought they were kind of cute in person :o).

Every time I realize how far along I am, a little bit of disbelief follows. Now there are only 18 weeks until our little girl is due to arrive. I'm really trying to enjoy the pregnancy, but I just can't wait to meet her! Plus, all of these stretching ligaments are really starting to drive me nuts. This week I went to sit down on a chair in our house, and ended up in the fetal position on the floor because my body just didn't want to cooperate. Eh, the joys of being pregnant!

Baby is a whopping 11 inches long and weighs almost a whole pound! According to, our little girl should look like a mini newborn, with lips, eyelids and eyebrows that are becoming more distinct, and even tiny tooth buds developing beneath the gums. Her eyes are now completely formed, but are still lacking pigment. Come on baby blues! She is also more capable of hearing noises from outside the womb. Sometimes I feel like I should talk to her, so she isn't so bored floating around all by herself in there :o).

This week I've been spending a lot of time thinking about names. Picking one out for our baby girl stresses me out just a bit. What if she hates it? What if other little kids make fun of her? We have a few names that we are considering, and one that will most likely be the one, but I just can't say that it is officially what I want to call her. I've gotten the suggestion 'just wait until you meet her and then decide' but I just don't believe that when she pops out I'll know any better what her name should be. Hmm...

And a little laughable tidbit? I've pretty much lost all the strength in my abs. I have a tendency to get slightly stuck on squishy couches, or if I'm laying down in bed I have to roll over to sit up. Chris laughs and calls me a pregger turtle. Isn't he a sweetie? :o) (Ok he really is, but I have to give him a hard time now and then!)

How far along: 22 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +6 pounds

Best moment this week: receiving some sample nursery fabrics in the mail

steak stir fry

Before I was pregnant I cooked recipes that had chicken in them ALL THE TIME. I loved to bake chicken. Now, the thought of chicken generally makes me want to hurl. (Classy, I know) So I haven't really done a whole lot of cooking lately. Last week however, I decided to make some beef stir fry.

When Chris and I first started cooking, we didn't think the recipe was going to turn out well. I was partly bitter because we dirtied 3 pots and probably 4 or so bowls with all the prep and cooking. I figured a recipe that took that many steps was going to get messed up somewhere. But surprisingly, the dish was rather good.

This recipe comes again from my favorite place, We substituted our own veggies (mushrooms, water chestnuts and green pepper), and I forgot to add the green onion. Both of us agreed that the flavor lacked a little kick (next time I think we will add a little bit of hoisin sauce) but overall was rather tastey. Hope you enjoy!

And if anyone has some suggestions for easy recipes that don't include chicken, or tomatoes (I hate tomatoes!) let me know!

November 28, 2009

bump check: 21 weeks

We are in the teens people... and I'm talking weeks left! That really freaked me out. I have no idea what I'll do when I'm in single digit weeks. Probably hyperventilate every now and then :o). In order to calm my nerves Chris and I discussed what baby really NEEDED when she was born. We came up with a place to sleep, something to eat, diapers, some onesies, and her carseat. Well we still need the place to sleep and the carseat, but other than that technically we could survive. That made me feel a little bit better!

According to, we are now just measuring the baby from head to toe. Lengthwise she is comparable to a banana at around 10.5 inches, and weighs in at around 12.7 ounces. Apparently her taste buds are really starting to kick in. Studies show that after birth, babies are most interested in tastes they've already experienced through amniotic fluid. So our lovely little girl is going to crave soup, chocolate and ice cream as much as I do? I better start eating more fruit :o).

Other than finding it impossible to sleep comfortably I'm doing really well these days. I am loving feeling her dance around inside me. I swear on Thanksgiving she was having a dance party without me. She was moving all day long! Usually in the mornings and at night when I'm laying in bed, Chris can feel her kicking a little bit. It just makes me smile. Gotta love family togetherness.

On Thanksgiving Chris's family had a little surprise shower for us. We had some cake and got some really nice and adorable little baby gear. Our little girl is already so loved. Thanks guys!

excited grandma alert

Here is a look at Baby J's closet before my mom came to visit:

And here is Baby J's closet after my mom came to visit:

I think it is safe to say we have an excited grandma-to-be on our hands! Aren't little girl clothes the cutest? My only peeve with little girl clothes... do they really all have to come in just pink? I know there is a little variation here and there, but when we have been in BabyGap or Old Navy it looks like someone threw up pepto everywhere.

Oh well, I am still going to have one of the best dressed daughters ever!

the beer cheese soup adventure, part 1

Before I begin... Happy Thanksgiving! Hope everyone had a great day stuffing their faces with turkey and potatoes... or whatever it is your family eats on this day :o).

Now, the beer cheese soup adventure, part one. From my baby posts you may know that I have been craving beer cheese (or cheddar ale) soup like crazy. So I thought I'd be clever and make my own.

First attempt? Relatively good flavor, but for some reason the soup came out kind of grainy. I felt like even though I hate too much spice, this soup was lacking a little kick. Overall for my first attempt, I would call it a success. But I decided that I need to try out a few more recipes, hence part one of the adventure. I have a few more recipes that I will try out in the next couple months or so.

I used a modified version of this recipe from (I have tons of cookbooks, but still love finding recipes on that site. So convenient!) Based on some of the reviews, I added an extra cup of cheese, and mixed the cornstarch with a little bit of chicken broth instead of adding water. Who knows, if I had followed the recipe exactly maybe the soup would have been perfect. Oh well!

November 21, 2009

bump check: 20 weeks

The reality of this situation? I am halfway done with my pregnancy. In approximately 20 weeks I will meet my daughter. I've completed more days than I have left. Seriously? I can't believe it. As much as I imagine it, I can't actually picture my life with her here. I wonder when that will set in...

For comparison, here is where I started (4 weeks) and where I am now!

If this is only halfway... what am I going to look like at oh say, week 38? Eek!

This week our daughter is being compared to a cantaloupe. She is about 6.5 inches from head to bum, and weighs about 10.6 oz. My brief search on the net provides me with no interesting information about what she is doing in there this week. Oh well...

As for me, life has been fairly good. Most of the time I feel great. I get tired a little more quickly than I used to, and I definitely am starting to have some pain with all my ligaments, but overall I shouldn't complain too much.

Our little girl is going to be active, I just know it. For a while I was getting discouraged that I wasn't feeling any movement at all, not even a slight flutter. But now I feel her wiggling more and more each day. Last night I got up to use the bathroom, when I came back to bed I tried to snuggle into my usual position... half on my stomach, half on my side. Well she wasn't having it. Every time I was more on my right side she kicked me over and over again until I moved. Demanding little one!

typical man

Here is a conversation I had with Chris yesterday morning...

Me: I don't see myself as someone who will go into labor early, but just to be on the safe side, I think we need to plan on being ready for a baby around 36 - 37 weeks.

Chris: Yeah, that makes sense.

Me: We should probably go register next weekend, and kind of figure out all the things we need, the nursery will need to be ready and stuff...

Chris: You know what I'm worried about?

Me: What?

Chris: That KU is going to be in the National Championship this year, and you're going to be in labor...

(photo take from here)

I reminded him that the hospital does have TVs, and as long as I'm not actually in the process of pushing the kid out, I think we will be fine. :o) Plus who wouldn't want to have a kid and win the national championship in the same day?

Rock Chalk Baby!!

November 14, 2009

bump check: 19 weeks

Getting bigger and rounder everyday! (I'm not sure whether I'm excited about that or not :o) I'm also starting to feel what I think is the baby moving around. No distinct kicks or jabs yet, but I feel some random pressure, like maybe the baby turning from side to side. Hopefully soon I will know that it is for sure baby!

Our little girl has reached the size of a mango (I LOVE mangos!), 6 inches from head to bum and about 8.5 ounces. On Tuesday the ultrasound tech said she measured at around 8 ounces. Her arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of her body. She is also starting to form a waxy protective coating on her skin to prevent it from pickling in the amniotic fluid. I mean come on, what would you look like if you sat in a bathtub for 9 months?

gotta have ruffles

For our little girl's nursery, I don't want something too cutesy. No little baby animals, Disney characters, things of that nature. Its just not my style.

We originally painted the walls gray, and hung a fabulous chandelier when the room was going to be mine. Thank goodness like I said, the chandelier can stay! I think I want to leave the walls gray, and then incorporate yellow, white and a little bit of hot pink into the room.

All little girls need some ruffles in their life right? So I am thinking these curtains from Urban Outfitters might be necessary. What do you think?

November 10, 2009

the chandelier stays...

The votes were close, and we almost didn't get to see the goods, but...

We are so incredibly excited. This morning I was just sure it was going to be a boy, so when the tech finally said 'she's a girl!' I asked her multiple times if she was sure. I believe her, and she printed me a picture so I can check multiple times if I need to, but I can't believe I'm going to have a daughter!!

Our baby girl has already snagged a couple of cute sale items from the BabyGap. (Sorry for the horrible phone picture!)

Now I can't wait to start decorating the nursery!!!!

November 8, 2009

soft and subtle

The rug that I ordered for the living room early in September finally arrived on Friday!! We decided since there was so much color in that area of the room already, that something a little more subtle would be perfect. So we ended up with this fun brown number.

It is the greco rug from Home Decorators. I like that it adds some more texture, and another soft spot for feet to land amongst all of the hardwoods.

November 7, 2009

bump check: 18 weeks

So I've gone from almost nothing to huge in like three weeks. I'm not even halfway through my pregnancy (almost though!). I am pretty sure I am going to be the goodyear blimp.

Baby is now the size of a sweet potato, 5.6 inches and 6.7 ounces. The baby has become amazingly mobile, passing the hours yawning, hiccuping, rolling, twisting, kicking, punching, sucking and swallowing. And the baby is finally big enough that I should (my fingers are crossed!!) be able to feel the movements soon.

laugh it up

I am posting this mildly embarrassing photo for your own personal entertainment. This is one of my work shirts... I swear I wore it last week with no problem. I mean it has always been a little short, and I've always worn a tank top under it... but this morning I was getting ready to walk out the door and realized crap...

... it had gone beyond short. My belly button was right at the line where the blue shirt ends and my tank started. Good news, the HR girl said she would trade me any company issued shirts for larger ones.

And my bump is still tiny!!! Oh man...

November 4, 2009

i want these...

right about, oh, now. If someone wants to bake these delicious brownies and bring me some I would be ever so grateful. I found this recipe here at, and it turns out some of the most amazing brownies I've ever had.

Seriously, try them. They really are the bomb. (Click the link, you'll understand!)

November 3, 2009

one week!!!!

We are at one week and counting until we find out if Baby J will be a mini Chris or a mini Ashley :o).  I can't even begin to describe how anxious and excited I am.

Originally we all thought I was going to have a boy.  Now I'm starting to lean towards a girl (maybe because I am love with all the little girl clothes an nursery decor :o).  Of course either way I will be happy, and just thrilled to know, but if there happens to be a little girl in there I will be over the moon!

So what do you think?  Participate in my poll and we will see who is right!

October 31, 2009

bump check: 17 weeks

Nothing too exciting going on this week. Just anxiously awaiting our ultrasound on November 10th. I am ready to start decorating and shopping!!

This week baby is the size of an onion (not the cutest food comparison I've seen...) measuring 5.1 inches and weighing around 5.9 ounces. The baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. The umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes are now topped by one-of-a-kind prints.

he told me not to...

When I told Chris that I wanted spinach and artichoke dip and chocolate milk for dinner, he told me it was a bad idea. For starters, that combo is kind of repulsive all on its own. Secondly, the only thing that makes me queasy lately is milk and cereal. He told me I would have a stomach ache. But I told him that is what I wanted. And when I actually want something, dang it I am going to have it.

I have a stomach ache. :o(

But the chocolate milk was delicious!!

take a tour

You can now take a short tour of our home! See that little link at the top of the page that says 'Our Home'? Well I finally updated that site, so you can now browse a few pics of our house.

I still need to add pictures of the kitchen (it wasn't in the best of shape this morning when I was taking pictures) as well as the outside of the house. However right now our yard is a leaf convention, so there isn't really much to see. Maybe in the springtime...

If you have any questions about paint colors or furniture we have, just ask. I would be happy to share the info. Hope you enjoy the tour!
