Today was a pretty productive morning in the Tree house.
I've found that I either have very productive mornings or very productive afternoons. Today it was morning, I cleaned out the fridge, took out all the shelves, hand washed them all and threw out all expired food. Now we have a nice clean, empty fridge. Well don't worry we still have Reeses Peanut Butter Egg's in there. Gotta get that pre-preggo body back remember? Peanut Butter Egg's are the first step.
This afternoon was not productive around the house, but it was still productive for me because I had an old friend stop by to see Eli and bring us dinner. We spent the afternoon talking about mommy-hood and all the crazy things that happen that nobody tells you about before you have a baby. It was so fun and I am so thankful for friends that I can share life with.
This morning, during my productive phase I tidied up Eli's nursery so that I could snap some pictures for the ole blog.
Several people asked if I was going to show his nursery, and I planned on it but never got around to it, until now.
I didn't really have a "vision" of what I wanted for a nursery. I spent a lot of time in the beginning of my pregnancy looking at various fabric websites and putting together bedding designs.
I thought about ordering from those websites, but decided to have my mom make the bedding. Why pay someone when my mom could easily do it?
So one Saturday in the fall my mom and I went to some fabric stores to find the perfect fabric for baby boy's room. We didn't shop long because we quickly found two pieces of fabric that I loved (one for the bumper one for the skirt). They weren't fabrics that were typically for a nursery but I loved them and wanted them.
After we found the fabric everything else was built around that color scheme. I'm not the best "decorator" so I just kinda went with the flow. I still have some items I would like to add to the room (like his newborn shots and a picture of me and Luke). But I figured I can show updated pics when that time comes.
Oh my word, with a mom that can sew like that, who needs to buy anything???? Love the fabric! Love the room! Love an afternoon with a mommy friend!! :)ReplyDelete
Just stumbled across your blog via Story of My Life and I'm in love! Read through your birth story and will probably spend the next few days catching up on archives!
So, nice to meet you :)
I love the way your nursery turned out! So nice that your mom can help with the sewing. I'm hoping to have my MIL help with that when the day comes. She doesn't know it, but that's the plan :)ReplyDelete
Mr. Eli is one stylish dude already! His closet is as full as mine!ReplyDelete
I love love the color scheme in the nursery! It's so classic and beautiful!ReplyDelete
And I'm totally jealous of his collection of kicks - he has more shoes than I do!
CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!! :)ReplyDelete
I saw you write that you were not the best decorator and was so excited that maybe I'm not the only person on Blogger with no vision and lacking Martha Stewart's talents. NOT! Eli's nursery is SO cute and well decorated! He's a lucky boy. And when do we get more pictures of him? I was hoping for a pity shot. :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful nursery! Loving all his clothes and shoes haha :)ReplyDelete
His room is so cute! I love the fabric that you chose! How lucky are you that your mom was able to make all of that, that's so awesome, not to mention her knitting skillz.ReplyDelete
Picture perfect nursery! I love that your mom made the bedding - what a special touch!ReplyDelete
The only thing this post is missing is a picture of Eli!! :-)
I love the non-traditional color scheme! It's sophisticated and something that will be able to grow with him over the years.ReplyDelete
Love the nursery!! Bedding is adorable!! I ordered the same furniture for our little boy but in the cinnamon color. How do you like the quality? Ours is still in the box until we get ready to do the nursery.ReplyDelete
Eli's nursery is so cute! Great job! And, you look great too. I have a 16 week old daughter. It's a very fun job!ReplyDelete
It's super cute! Great Job!ReplyDelete
I love the nursery! I really like when a nursery scheme can "grow" with them. I think you've made a room that Eli can enjoy for years!ReplyDelete
Love those fabrics! I just love it when baby's have non-traditional color schemes! It looks fabulous!ReplyDelete
i love reese's eggs.ReplyDelete
it is my personal opinion that the eggs are the best of all the holiday reese's... something to do with the pb to chocolate ratio...
Love the fabric choices! And your mom is a talented lady :)ReplyDelete
Love that fabric! I tend to love the stuff that isn't really baby-ish, too! And it looks like you are a fantastic decorator!ReplyDelete
LOVE it!!!!! Super cute!!! And now I must go get myself a peanut butter egg!!! Those things are the bomb! :)ReplyDelete
So, so cute!!! Love the colors!ReplyDelete
