her quarters

i am so happy with the end results. i think even the husband, who was once doubtful of the grey, is happy with the nursery. hopefully little baby girl will love it too!

my mom recovered the rocker for me, which when i used it with sweet cheeks was pink and green. it is such a comfy chair so i am so glad she was able to recover it in the pink damask fabric.

i absolutely love the book ledges. they brought a lot of color to the room. plus, i love that all of the books once belonged to big sister sweet cheeks. and how cute is the little sophie & lili doll on the shelf. isn't she adorable.

i ordered the sweet dreams banner from my baby sam.

the elephant bin by 3 sprouts will be great for her toys but for now it is blanket storage.

the garden blossom elephant in the crib is from dwell. the crib sheet is also by dwell, mini dots in grey. i decided to not use a crib bumper this go around. crib skirt was a freebie from work.

the doll house book shelf was sweet cheeks. it didn't fit in her room after the room make-over so luckily it works just great in the nursery.

the changing table is an ikea hemnes dresser. the pink zinnia knobs are from anthropologie.

the cute pink and gray fabric cat was made by a girl i work with. the little white chair is ikea kritter. hanging on the closet is a pink "little sister" tee.

so there you have it. the nursery for my second daughter!

i am getting so excited to put the room to use.


break on through to the other side

the nursery is finished! yippee. i will post pics of it later this week.

i did want to show you the amazingly special touch that the husband added to both girl's rooms. it is a tunnel! since the room's closets shared a wall, he just went in, cut a hole in the wall, and created a unique tunnel for them to go through. the trim needs to be painted and carpet installed along the inside but it is still functional in the meantime. sweet cheeks and the dogs already make good use of it.

sweet cheeks coming back into her room from her sisters room

and the view from little sister's room looking into sweet cheek's room. half of sweet cheek's closet was transformed into a mini reading space. we just put a bucket of books, bean bag chair, and some pillows in it to create a little reading room.


april showers

hello blog.
nice to see you.
sorry pregnancy has come between us... again

so how lucky am i that with my second daughter (still so weird to say that!) i have had THREE baby showers! we are more than spoiled.

the first one was thrown by my two sweet girlfriends. they did such a great job and we all had a wonderful time. (sadly i didn't take pictures. must see if they have any!) not only did we get so many wonderful gifts, they also sent home two dinners to freeze for once the baby arrives. i love that idea!

the next one was a surprise shower thrown for me at work. it was sweet because so many people participated bringing baked goods and such. one girl went so far as to have her grandmother in colorado make a beautiful pink and white baby blanket for this baby girl. so thoughtful.

our third shower was thrown for us by my amazing mother and sister. and even though i did remember to take some family photos, i was mad at myself for not taking pictures of all the cute decorations and delicious food (especially the cheese dips and cake. they were so so good!).

we really are so blessed with our family and friends.

my side of the family...
(and notice the cute BABY banner that my sister made hanging over our heads)

the husband and me with sweet cheeks, her cousin, her aunt, her nana and her great grandma (aka- GG)
and us.... sweet cheeks ran and hid from us for this picture. by then, she had enough of the picture taking.
