In other news, we painted the nursery this weekend!!  Brandon was such a champ, he did almost the entire room since technically I'm not supposed to be around paint much.

 For the parts of the trimming that I did, I wore a stupid facemask that made me breathe my own hot burrito breath. I was NOT a fan. So I volunteered to leave in the middle to get another gallon of paint when we ran out... and came back with ice cream. Go figure.

The color is called "Toasted White" by Glidden. I am beyond happy with the results! Even though it is still very light, the grey really makes the trim pop & gives the room an airy, soothing vibe. I will post before & after pics soon! Also, thanks to all for the comments & suggestions about the nursery, I loved reading all of your advice! I definitely noticed a consensus about the changing table being unnecessary.. which is good since I already purchased this cabinet to use. 
I feel like I am getting very far ahead in nursery decorations - which is totally my style since I've also been listening to Christmas music for about a month now. Fa LA LA LA LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!! :)


  1. I just started following your blog. First of all, congrats to you and your husband! Looks like you are both excited and you are a beautiful pregnant woman. Second of all, if you haven't already, you should defintely check out It's awesome!

    Have a great week!

  2. Hi! I recently started following your blog after finding a pic of your cool chalkboard on Pinterest. Congratulations on your bump, what a great time for you and your hubby! You look really well in your pics btw.

    Re the changing table, my friend had an attachment that went over the top of the cot which effectively used wasted space. Then when the baby is in the cot sleeping, you just take it off and put it underneath. Great space saver! I love the grey colour for the nursery you chose.

  3. A friend recommended your blog to me a few weeks ago. As a result I was inspired to start my own baby blog... How fun to track your pregnancy and prepare for the little one's arrival! I'm a little behind you at 9 weeks. I wish you all the best :)

  4. So much fun! I love that your baby is the size of a Chipotle Burrito because that's what I had for dinner last night. Yummy.

    I can't wait to see the whole nursery put together.

  5. We used Olympics VOC free paint for our nursery. You can have a color from another brand color matched to it. But it's a good option for you and your little one being around the paint.

    Can't wait to see how it comes along!

  6. We put a giant giraffe in our son's room 1-because she (I named her Zoe) was beautiful and 2-because we got the giant leaf from ikea and didn't want to go too jungle-y. This is the one we have:

    ps: I love both your blogs! I found you on Pinterest :)

  7. I stumbled on your blog through pinterest and discovered we are due 3 days apart. Good luck! Your way ahead of me in the nursery aspect I'm very jealous. Suggestions for nursery, big comfy chair and easy to access night light :)

  8. You and your blog are too cute!! I love your chalkboard art... your typography is beautiful!

  9. You are adorable!! I'm 19 weeks right now too! Check out the blog about it all:

  10. Congratulations to you as soon as there a new life, however, really happy for you.

    As a mother, the children grow up healthy and happy is important, but the child's development is also very important, whether it is physical development or brain development. And I know a great influence to bring toys to the children, so I always give my baby to buy a lot of toys can enhance brain development, this is home to a good shop for baby grows.
