I Made an 8 ft x 3 ft Desk with my Baby Bump

  When we bought this house, we saw this amazing space that most Floridians don't have. A basement! Thankfully, our basement was finished and we already had ideas of how to use it. Thank you to the previous owner who left the not one, but two t.v. mounts in the same room to automatically claim that space as the "man cave."
