Our Home in 5 Years

We moved into our home five years ago, and each year we've been able to make it more our own. I was going to do before/after of most of the rooms, but then that seemed like a lot of work ;) We've been able to update our main floor in significant ways the past year, so here's some updated pictures of our living room at least:

This spring we are looking forward to redoing the patio underneath our deck to make it more user-friendly. As in, we can actually use it! We're getting concrete laid, adding some textiles and florals, and changing up the seating. Will has been asking for a "tall excavator" for his birthday, so we're excited to surprise him with a digger (hello cheap on amazon!) which will also go in the back.

We also moved Will to a twin bed last month! The beloved teepee went to the basement, and now he has a tiny reading corner. Maggie has been enjoying sleeping with Will (and waking him up too early!) too

These home updates are most important to us because we want to utilize the space we have and ensure others feel welcomed and comfortable while in our home. Although we've done less hosting the past few months, we are eager to have friends and family over more this summer before baby arrives!

It's a...


We are thrilled to share that we are having another boy! We were able to find out the gender exceptionally early, so it has been fun having this sweet little one seem more real.

On Friday we had a casual gender reveal with family. Will pulled out a blue stuffed animal from a bag. My parents will now have seven grandsons and no shot at any granddaughters! It will also make zero girls and three boys for the Osbeck side.

We will name the baby Callan Clair. There is really no significance to the first or middle names except that we just liked them...and apparently all the boys in our family need girl middle names? :P 

Although I still feel anxious each day, focusing on the name/nursery have been positive distractions. Here are a few sneak peeks for the safari theme.

Again we are deeply grateful for this little blessing. I think I will feel cautious the entire pregnancy, but we are choosing to focus on the exciting times ahead. Thank you to all who have shared in our joy!
