We have officially reached the halfway point, and will be meeting the bun in only 4 and a half months! Which means we should probably get on this nursery planning. A few days ago I got sucked into pinterest and started a board of ideas. Painting the nursery was job one and I had previously settled on gray with a bright aqua and maybe some golden yellow or lime green accents. We finished clearing the room, formerly a guest room, this past weekend and painted the walls gray (Valspar Coastal Villa). It actually turned out to be a quick project, and included a short stop to order Girl Scout Cookies our neighbor came by selling. (They are for the bun. The bun likes cookies.) The crib, which we picked up a couple weeks ago when we found a serious deal at our local Furniture Outlet, is “backporch white”. A fancy way of saying “cream”. It is currently in a rather large box outside the room. All 150 lbs. Of box #1. We’ll save that project for another weekend. I’m looking forward to having the main furniture pieces in so I can start with the fun decorating accents. Thankfully my mom will be coming to town later in February to help with sewing projects and other details. The bun has been moving more lately – I’ve started feeling little pokes the past couple weeks here and there, but yesterday they were going to town. I’m wondering if that is a hint about what is to come. 😉
I love chocolate and snow. Art supplies are my favorite gift. And cooking for my husband and soon-to-be little girl makes me happy. My art supplies of choice change depending on the day, but quilting and painting usually rank pretty high. I have an amazing husband and together we do family and lifestyle photography. It's a crazy, messy, imperfect, fun life!
