fourth bedroom downstairs. Wait, you ask, isn't that Feeney's room? One of the only bedrooms specifically for a dog floating around blogland? The one totally paper-free room in our house?
Feeney's room with his elephant dog bed that matches the elephant valances and the turquoise bookshelf interior. But when we started our basement renovation this room became our storage room for everything we'd previously stored downstairs and Feeney moved to our room, which frankly, he preferred since he's practically my shadow and we all know shadows don't deal well with doors.
Perhaps more important, is the reason why we hired a contractor to renovate our basement at all, as opposed to tackling the project as we originally planned: I've been working on growing a baby bee for the past six months; we're expecting its big reveal in December!

Now that we've managed to make it through several ultrasounds without finding out if we're expecting a Bee or a Bea, we're getting to work on a gender neutral nursery. Bold, but gender neutral. Feeney will likely continue to sleep on his elephant tuffet in our room, but we're not blind to the fact that as my shadow, he'll be spending plenty of time next to the nursery rocking chair, so we'll make sure his bed still goes well with our vision. And speaking of vision, I spent the majority of the summer in Maine, where summer weather is perfect (shhh, that's still our secret, don't tell) and nothing like the swamp-like DC summers, with my sewing machine and a project list a mile long. Just wait 'til you see all the baby-related projects that I have to show you! And don't worry, we're not going all-baby-all-the-time...after all, that patio isn't going to build itself.
