|My little sister and I goofing around with our baby bumps...She was 11 weeks ahead of me, which made this pregnancy even that much more enjoyable!|

Nathan will be here next week! We had intended on just making small changes to the nursery here and there, but then one thing led to another, and I have a revamped room for my little guy. I stuck with the same color palette as my previous nursery, kept the painted ceiling, furniture, and window treatments.
I wish I could take credit for this painted tree, but we left the wall art to a professional! Maybe one day...
|For Nathan's name, I bought some whimsy wooden letters from Hobby Lobby and covered them with patterned paper and Mod Podge. The edges are covered with ric rac. I sanded the top between coats of Mod Podge and applied a clear coat to finish.|
|I saw a similar frame at a baby boutique for $65...I made this for under $15 with an inexpensive frame, two shades of acrylic paint, crackle paint, ribbon, and a piece for the center of the bow.|
|Samuel and Jack both had a FIT when they realized that I was buying this lamp for Nathan's room -- apparently it is just for girls, as there are too many flowers on it. Sorry, I must not have gotten the memo! :)|
|That's Kase pretending that he actually likes to paint (his least favorite project!).|

|Here is my 3 year old "baby" trying to manage the 2 youngest at Christmas. These pictures crack me up! Next Christmas will be much different! I was inspired by and lifted design elements from a layout created by Celeste Smith at Jillibean Soup.|

|I normally don't created theme-type layouts, but Mario always gets the best of me. :) Samuel chuckled when he saw this. Apparently the "helping flower" is not supposed to come out of the pipe. Well that's how I had it on your cake, buddy!|
Thanks for stopping by!

As my husband would say, this is what happens when Pinterest affects your real life. I have been nesting like crazy. I saw an idea on Pinterest about hanging a small shelf above your washing machine. Perfect! That is ALL I wanted...or so I thought. Thankfully, I am married to a handy guy who also likes to gets his hands dirty with fun projects around the house. Somehow, a simple shelf transpired into a total revamp of my little laundry room.
BEFORE: I promise. It wasn't always this bad. Girl Scout's honor!
(I was never a Girl Scout.)
|New cabinets and shelf above the washing machine - yay! The wicker basket is for all the mail that used to just pile up on top of my dryer. Now it can just pile up inside the basket until I am ready for it.|
|This lamp used to be in my nursery. I loved it and didn't want to part with it. I purchased one of those self-adhesive lampshades at Hobby Lobby and some fun fabric and trim. For less than $10, I got a "new" lamp!|
|A little matching memo board...|

I am such a sucker for 8X10 prints.
