She is the cutest little bundle and we are absolutely head over heels in love with her.

I have been busy busy with her so I’ve had to put the blog on the back burner for awhile…but I’ll try and post when this little princess will allow me.

In other news, I just got her nursery photographed so I hope to have that up soon! You are going to love it!!

We’ve been featured!

Hi All!

July 1st was my baby shower, and I wanted to share with you the pretty photos that were taken by the lovely Michele Beckwith

I absolutely loved how everything turned out and I definitely couldn’t have done it without my sister in law and besties!

Bathroom & Belly

22 Jun

Hi!!

Wow I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since my last post.

I apologize for such a long absence, it’s just been so crazy over here.

We (mainly the husband) have been working on the bathroom every night and weekend to get it done before the baby shower on July 1st! yikes! We have one week left and still have a good amount to get finished.

paint bathroom & hallway walls and trim

seal tile and grout

install shower trim

install toilet

install pedestal sink

install faucet

hang mirror

install vanity and chandelier light

finish electrical (fan, switches etc)

install door hardware

install shelves

install towel and tissue fixtures

Woo!! Did I forget anything?

Anyway here are some progress shots so you can see what we’ve been up to.

We decided to open up the wall to install a pocket door, which has made a huge difference for the space.

Here it is all framed up and installed. I love it!

So here we got the tub in, insulation in, and are starting to drywall.

The drywall going up has made a huge difference, now we could really visualize it!

Day 2 of tile install! (I’m saving the finished tile for the reveal)

And now today has been all about paint, Left to Right: Wickham Gray, Horizon and Moonshine all Benjamin Moore colors. We actually already primed the walls, tinted to Horizon so that’s why you can barely see it.

We are painting tonight so I’ll surprise you with the color I chose ; )

Oh and by the way I’m 30 weeks as of yesterday! Yeee!!

Here’s a belly shot from week 29

Hope you all enjoy your weekend! Wish us luck on wrapping this bathroom up! My poor husband will be busy all weekend ; )

26 weeks

I’m a little behind on my weekly belly shots.

I’m actually 26 weeks as of yesterday but here’s some shots from last weekend while we were in Carmel celebrating our 2 year anniversary.

BTW I finally decided on a paint color for the nursery and we finished painting it last night! Once I clean it all up I’ll post some photos.

Have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!

the perfect mint paint

23 May

I’m on the hunt for the perfect mint paint.

I’ve actually already tried about 10 colors, with still no luck.

This is what I’m looking for

The above color is actually Robins Nest by Ben Moore. But of course with lighting and camera settings it’s a beautiful mint color. Which I must have!

BTW I tried Robins Nest and it’s way too dark for the space and of course not mint.

This one is Spearmint Stick by Behr…pretty right? well the swatch is almost fluorescent green. Not exactly what the photo reads. But I still love this color and want it!

More colors I love…

Lately I’ve been pretty consumed with the baby shower, although I have my sister in law, sister and girlfriends all helping me. I can’t help obsessing over it, plus its at my house so I love that I will have full creative control on all the décor.

IMG_9244

Still no real cravings. Which I guess is good, because the scale won’t stop moving! Pretty crazy to see it go up each week, something I’m so not used to.

It’ll all be worth it though, once I meet my sweet girl.

In other news, we started working on the nursery. I’ll post an update on that soon.

Have great week!
