Welcome to the World Little One

And everything changes...

Life Update,

Meet Juliet Mira Ferguson Chiu.

Our daughter was born February 5th, weighing 5lbs 3oz. and 19 inches long. During my entire pregnancy I had been picturing an Asian baby who takes after my husband. She surprised everyone by being born with red hair and blue eyes like her Mommy.

I went to the hospital for a fetal stress test at the end of January and never went home. Juliet was born by emergency C-section after I had been in the hospital for a week. She is truly our little miracle baby. We are so in love with her!

Life Changes in a Little Bungalow

Lets talk...

Life Update

I’m sorry I have been out of touch. Thank you to everyone who took the time to send me emails and links to your blogs. I really try to personally answer each one but sometimes life gets in the way. I’m sorry for not responding, but I have read and enjoyed each email.

I have a lot to update you on. Big changes are happening at our little bungalow. I am 6 months pregnant with our first child. We couldn’t be happier!

We are in the process of turning our den and tv room into a home office. It is important to get it right because we both work from home. Our current office will become the nursery. In the past year I have wallpapered and updated the dining room and repainted our living. I have so much to catch you up on.

And…we are going to remodel our kitchen! It has taken us 10 years, sadly that isn’t a typo, to get here. I won’t be able to do the dream version of our kitchen. We won’t be opening any walls or annexing part of the back porch. This will be a kitchen done on a shoestring budget.

I don’t know if I will be able to pull this off. I want to end up with something that we both love, that is also respectful to the period of our home. Well, I guess it can only get better…and we have a deadline. This kitchen must be done before the baby comes.

Break out the sledge hammers. Our kitchen is a complete gut job, right down to the studs.


This photo doesn’t do our kitchen justice. In person, our kitchen is actually much worse.

I have lived with our kitchen for the past 10 years! Imagine me off in the distance with my hands to my head, repeatedly screaming, “10 YEARS!”

For those who have asked, the situation with the prostitution has gotten much better. I am not sure that I trust it will remain this way, but right now things are greatly improved. It is so nice not to constantly have all that negativity happening in our community.
