Catching Up

Well, it's been about five months since I last updated the ol' blog so instead of explaining and making excuses I will just let everyone (or the 2 people that read this) know what's been going on. 

Obviously, a lot has happened, but far and away the most important being that we are anxiously waiting for our baby BOY to arrive!  Weston should be here in about 2 weeks...but if he decided to come early it would not hurt my feelings. ;-)  J and I are so excited and can't wait to begin the life-long adventure of parenthood together. 

We've been very busy getting his room ready and I have to say I love it!  I get asked a lot about what theme we are using and I always laugh because I do not do well with themes.  Trying to match everything stresses me out.  So J calls this theme "random with color" and I think that sums it up pretty well. :-)

We still have to hang some things on the walls and I have an idea in my head about a DIY mobile that could turn out to be a disaster, but here are a few pictures of what we have right now. 

We decided we wanted this twin bed in the room in case we need an extra bed for company, but I'm thinking it may come in handy on late nights too. :-)  All the pillows were made by my mom.

This shelf was supposed to lie on it's side for a bench, but we didn't have enough room.  Oh well, I still love it.  The shelf and baskets are from Ikea.

This crib is a Jenny Lind (I think that's how you spell it) and it's the same one J used when he was a baby.  My mom made all the bedding.

Embroidered quilt made by my sweet grandma.  It makes me smile. :-)

Pillow made by the best mom in the world...mine.

This is an old desk that my parents had.  They added shelves, painted it, and replaced the knobs to turn it into a changing table.

This is the one thing I did myself.  It's made from an old board from my grandparents' house and will be hung on the wall...not lying in the floor.

Door hanger made by my talented friend Amanda.

Chalkboard made by another talented friend Allison.

And I had to include this picture of Dixie just because she's adorable and I love her.  She also thinks this is her room. :-/  Our spoiled furbaby may be in for a rude awakening when little brother arrives.
 More to come when everything is completed.  I'll leave with a picture of my ever-growing bump.

This is Weston at 38 weeks with only 2 more to go!  Holy cuss word!  We will be parents soon!


  1. Friend, it looks FABULOUS! Such a precious room for a precious baby boy. I am so excited for you and J. Baby Weston is so lucky to have you two as parents!

  2. You look awesome, all belly and adorable. I almost forget what your face looks like it's been so long. Congratulations, Weston is a strong, wonderful name and his room is just adorable. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  3. Congratulations! Weston is such a cute name (which was one of my considerations before deciding on Preston for my son.)

    The nursery looks perfect for a little boy...and his big brother doggy! ;)
