Don't Judge Me

I was hesitant to post this picture on my blog but here you go world, I am airing my dirty laundry out for all to see: the before picture. We are in the process of clearing out the room that will become the babies room. Everything has been moved in the middle of the floor and this is what my lovely little nursery looks like right now. GASP.......

It was my husbands home office / my junk room / place for anything that did not have a place. We have moved the hubs office into the guest bedroom and still trying to clear out some of the stuff. We got our rocker delivered today by my beautiful lovely sister in law all the way from Houston and our crib is in route!!! Things are moving fast, but this room needs clearing out before anything else gets done. Sigh.

Horrid before pictures makes juicy after pictures!!! I can not wait.

Going Gray

I ordered a few swatches online from Lewis & Sheron Textiles. I am hoping to make some drapes and bedding for the nursery!!! I hope they are a beautiful in person as the picture on my computer.

I love fabric.

Week 15

An orange - that's right our little baby was the size of a navel orange last week. This week (16) we are growing into an avocado then an onion. I love how they compare baby size to food, it's so relatable.
Only 165 days left!!!

(15 weeks)

Deliciously Organized

My necklaces have been sitting in a cardboard box for about a year now. I know that's just horrible, but I had no place to put them. And wearing a necklace meant digging through the box and spending time untangling the mess of jewels.

I came across this idea and ran with it. I got a towel bar and shower curtain S rings at Walmart and hung it up in my closet. I spent less than $20 and now every time I get dressed in the morning I pass right by my necklaces and throw one on!!! It's just delicious.

Goodnight Moon

So yes of course I have been thinking of all the fabulous ways to decorated our new nursery. I have pretty much narrowed the wall colors down to gray. I tried a little sample of BM-Revere Pewter and it was a shade to dark and different shade to cool. I am really feeling this Edgecomb Gray, it seems more of a warm tan gray color. My goal this weekend is to get a little sample of it on the wall to really test it out.

Here are some inspirations I found on the internet and instantly fell in love with. We don't know the gender yet so everything is still up in the air.....

What Was I Thinking?

I have decided to take up crocheting. Don't even ask how I came up with this hair brain idea expect for the fact that I found this adorable little lamb's hat for sale and really did not want to pay 45 bucks for it......

O dear the more I look at that adorable picture the more I want to just buy it.

Instead I paid 5 bucks to get the pattern for this earflap bear hat......

Looks like I will be knee deep in yarn for the weekend!!!! They promise it's super easy to do, but I have never crochet anything in my life. I have an aunt who is super at it so I might be calling her for lessons!!!!

If all goes amazingly well I might try my hand at this little sleepy owl next (no promises).....

Anyone think I am in over my head???

First Comes Love

Then comes marriage. In January we will be pushing a baby carriage!!!!

Went to the doctor again today to hear the little heartbeat, it was so amazing!!! We are 14 weeks and officially in the 2nd trimester. I started a little journal (with pictures of course) to document my pregnancy. I am hoping to make a book out of it once our little bundle of joy has entered the world.

I am very excited to start decorating the nursery, and excited to keep you in the loop with every little detail. I have felt great the last few weeks but my energy was zapped, I could hardly peel myself off the sofa much less write a blog post. I was very uninspired the past 3 months. No fear the nesting is slowly kicking in and I will have mucho material for my little blog!!!
