Those 4 bedrooms do sound great! It's probably cheaper in idaho than in Washington. Housing is so expensive here in the city in southern california. A super nice house by by grandma in Oklahoma is the price of a cheap house here.

I hope you're right kathy! I have to go back through our posts to find your pic again!

It's a tiny town, so the median house price is about $200,000. We would be renting, but this house is only $750 a month! You can't even get an apartment here for that!

Change of subject... did you ladies know there's something else to pee on that we haven't tried?! Baby gender test is $27... I'm sorely tempted, but it's not necessarily 100% accurate. You can read up on it here: http://www.intelligender.com/home.html

Dang! That's awesome! You can't rent a house here for under 1200.
I have read reviews for that on amazon, it's got a lot of mixed reviews. So I figure its still 50/50 maybe slightly better.

Yeah, Jessica, I just went through the amazon review of that test and some other brands. It seems like most of the people who had it read correctly were having girls which really doesn't tell you if the test was working anyway lol. Not worth the money, but I didn't know they even existed until a few minutes ago!

I was all excited when I first found it on amazon, but then I read the reviews. :( if I thought it might actually work, I would have gotten it!

I would love five bedrooms haha. 3 bedrooms, a toy room (that becomes more than necessary!), and an office. 2 bathrooms. 1 for us n 1 for kids. And a basement for all Scots junk (not all of it is junk but my bedroom looks more like a 15 year old boys room with guitars and metal posters, than a married couples room. I literally have 2 feet of space for my stuff! Therfore I have very little stuff)
also a dining room would be nice because our kitchen is tiny. And I'm pretty sick of hand washing dishes, so a dish washer would be great. :) it feels good to dream!
At least your dream is more of a reality Becca haha who knows what will come of mine. Debt stinks

We live in a 1 bedroom apt right now and it's upstairs. I am an excellent organizer and make use of lots of those storage cubes and organizers from target. Dh and I sleep in the bedroom and have all the dressers and shoes in there. We have a sofa bed for the girls. Toys are in these nice laundry baskets I got at ross and a matching ottoman. I know we will be moving either while I am pregnant or before baby's 1st birthday.

Oh, to have a dishwasher! I feel your pain there! We even got a counter top dishwasher a few months ago for cheap on craigslist. It was small, but our kitchen has never been so clean. It lasted about two months before the motor burned up and they don't make replacement parts for it any more. It was devastating lol. That happened right around the time the morning sickness showed up, so luckily I have delegated dish duty to Russ for now. ;)

Yeah, 3 kiddos would be a bit much for a 1 bedroom apartment Jessica!

I know lol! There is a surprising amount of space here though. Right now we aren't cramped at all. I imagine if we are still here after baby it will get that way!

Organization is something I've never been good at haha. I try to keep the place as clean as I can but I feel like she is just getting into something else while I'm cleaning up the previous mess. Hard to keep up with!
And yeah dishwashing is no fun! Especially with these winter months, my hands get so dry and cracked. If I put lotion on it heals up quick after that burning sensation goes away. Scot will help out on the days I'm feeling bad too and that's pretty nice! He comes home and makes dinner on those days too which I feel bad about but it's hard to think of a meal to make when everything sounds awful. I've only been feeling nauseous at night now. The old myths say that means boy haha.

I really like to organize. Clutter bothers me. Dh had to build a shelf for all our blu rays and of course I have them alphabetized. Kids toys are separated by toy type. I love organizing the pantry and kitchen. :) I have never had a dishwasher in all my life. I hate dishes, but of course I have to do them! I only might get out of them if dh's sister comes over and I cook, then she usually washes the dishes after.

I am so sleepy today. I want to take a nap, but don't have time for one.

I hate clutter too, it stress me out. But Scot has so much stuff, he likes having lots of things and covering up space.
I think less is more and like having free space but I moved into his house so I just have to deal with all the stuff! Add all of Jadyn's books and toys and it's just crazy. None of this stuff is mine. I miss being able to have a little bit of stuff but I just have to accept how things are!

I use 2 of these stacked vertically to organize all the girls' books and coloring accessories. http://www.target.com/p/room-essentials ... dSlot=_1_8
I have 3 of these stacked vertically to organize all of our shoes. http://www.target.com/p/closetmaid-15-u ... closetmaid
And I have 6 of these in the closet 3 across and 2 high to organize little things like board games, the kids' play dough and paints, extra art supplies and stuff like that. http://www.target.com/p/closetmaid-31-h ... closetmaid
I have lots of other stuff to organize, but these have saved me a lot of space. Think vertical!

This is half my living room but every room of the house is like this. There's no empty wall to add anything. Bedrooms, bathroom, laundry room, kitchen, they're all the same. The closets are filled with his memoribilia that he will forevermore refuse to part with but absolutely never uses. Our garage is just the same. All his stuff!
