Our guest room redecorated for under $300, with the kind assistance of Super Target and my mom. Too bad it’s only going to look like this for 7 more months.

Congrats on the Blurbodoocelette! Do we have a due date?
Wow! I’m SOOO Happy for you!
Chuck will have a partner in crime.
Take good care!
I’m so happy for you and I’ll echo the others who said Woohoo! for smart, nice people having babies. I’m really looking forward to hearing about the whole bun-in-the-oven and baby thing through *your* eyes. I think anyone who assumes talk of babies from dooce will be like the typical parental gushing found elsewhere is way off base. Babytalk away, if you want. Very best wishes to all four of you!
Jesus H. Chr…errr…
There’s a navajo custom that whoever makes the baby laugh has to throw a party. A BIG party. Keep that in mind. p
addendum: whoever makes the baby laugh for the FIRST TIME has to throw the party.
How awesome! What a terrific way to make your announcement.
long time reader…first time poster. Congratulations !!! I wish you all the best.
Congrats!!! Now you’ll have your own 5 year old one day asking why your dog’s front bottom is pink and sticking out! The best of both worlds under one roof. : )
wait, i don’t get it, the baby’s going to stay in the guest room?
Congratulations from yet another lurker!
Congratulations on the baby!
That’s gonna be one pretty baby. I hope Chuck approves.
Congratulations from a loyal reader.
Speaking as the mom of a 2 year old, this book (Baby Bargains) will save your life:
i don’t think i’ve ever been so happy at a stranger’s pregnancy! but congrats, and we all look forward to some great stories!
note to getbacktoworkjim: i would think the teletubbies would be the _best_ thing about having babies. not that i would know.
Congratulations! From someone who was born and raised in Utah – take it from me – DO NOT live in an area that will subject your teenage child to the ridicule and mockery of going to a high school with the mascot moniker of BEETDIGGER. I will never hear the end of that one. It’s painful, yo.
Congratulations! With one more mouth to feed, you better get crackin’ on updating your *year supply*!
I love *year supply* jokes. They’re so easy.
I’m so perplexed I don’t know what to say. Horny yet horrified at the same time. yay!
You should name it “Dooce”.
wow. wow! that is so amazingly wonderful.
Woooooohoooooo!! (Texas frat boy style congrats)
what does *year supply* mean?
Well, call an exorcist.
Dooce is pregnant.
Pregnant? How in God’s name did that happen? I didn’t think Mormans did that.
I hope your baby doesn’t poop on that bed.
…”my boys”… plural???
I wish I could put a nice guassian blur like that on my whole apartment, it would look so much better. And of course, congratulations #7,358! It wasn’t until my sister had a baby a couple of months ago that I understood what the hullabaloo was all about. I can’t wait to hear all the strange, wonderful things that Abcde Blurbodooce Armstrong brings to your life.
first time poster, and recent first time mom here. Congrats!
Love the new room…make sure to get the baby room done sooner than 7 months though….more like month 5 or 6 of your pregnancy.
I didn’t get the baby room finished and it’s still in a state half-assedness. (5 months postpartum)
A *year supply* is a Mormon thing… good Mormon families (read good Mormon wives)are supposed to keep a year’s supply of food around so that all of the smug Mormons will have something to eat during Armageddon while the rest of us heathens starve. They’re totally not going to share, either. Dooce is a detoxed Mormon… I’m sure you got the joke, right Dooce? There’s nothing more satisfying for a non-Mormon than giving a Mormon bride a big bag of cornmeal as a wedding present.
heh heh … thanks for the clarification, estelle. now i know where to go a-knockin’ for staples (cake batter?) when Gabriel’s trumpet blows.
An April baby — I’m sooo happy for you two!
Good luck on that name thing. I’m sure you’ll find something wonderful on that UBN site. Latrina? I like Hereditary Armstrong. My 15 y.o. dd spent all school year working on an autobiography, which she titled “They Should Have Named Me Spike”. Which just proves that you can’t win–please yourselves.
is Spike Lee going to sue her?
oh yeah… and wonderful interior decorating. at only $300, no more! not bad, not bad..
holy crap! that’s the nicest room! completely martha (peace be with)… scandalous and all! thanks for sharing! i too have a arts and crafts bungalow (circa 1924) which is in mad need of some handiwork and decorating. now like youth hostile, future looked bleak… now i’m at least definite on sheer window treatments long and wispy! yeS!
omg!!! and i was so excited about the room i didn’t get to the last picture!!!! CONGRATSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!
ouu-la-la! congratulations! please, promise you won’t make one of those baby-blogs…the ones that sound like the baby itself is writing.
Congrats, but I must say – I’ve found I’m pretty much done with this site. Nothing personal, but we’re a long way from the shit talkin, booze drinking, running into stars, getting fired from her job, Dooce. Now it’s just puppies, babies, and Martha Stewart. Hello LifetimeTV.
Don’t say, “well don’t read it then!” Because I won’t – it’s just that it was at one time exciting, hip and cutting edge.
I wish you the best Dooce and Blurb, but I think it’s time I sailed into the sunset. Yeah I know, you’re saying “good riddence.”
shawnrok, i believe you are a cunt.
Wow. Someone thinks that putting “Congrats” in front of a slam adds tact. Someone is wrong.
holy preggers, batman! mucho congrats.
congratulations on the baby!
This blog entry, your delivery of this announcement….just phenomenal. Hands down phenomenal.
Oh, I get it. Congratulations.
You’ll be a fine mother; you have your poop issues well in hand.
…and the world became a better place. Water rises with joy.
Hooray! What a great way to announce a pregnancy. You’re so damn funny!
congratulations!! i don’t think i’d ever have the guts to have a child… or redecorate a room like that! at least we know that with taste that good, your baby’s gonna have a cool name
very happy for you!
