maternity photos


It is hard to believe we are less than one month away from baby Mason's due date!  When we were home for my baby shower a few weeks ago one of my dear friends and fabulous photographer, Lori Wilson, took us out to take a few maternity photo's.  She captured some great moments that will be perfect for remembering my pregnancy and baby bump!  (All photos courtesy of Lori Wilson Photography)  















Thanks Lori!

project nursery - phase 3


After painting and furniture next on my nursery list was picking out baby bedding!  This was not an easy task.  There are so many baby bedding options available and each one is just as cute as the next!  I knew that I wanted to use white, grey, aqua blue and bright green for the colors.  Paired with chevron stripes and polka dot's for the patterns.  During my search, I stumbled upon Carousel Designs, a web site where you can design your own custom baby bedding!  They have tons of fabrics, colors and patters to choose from.  I promptly ordered several fabric swatches and went through several design versions before we settled on a winner.  It was a fun process and I LOVE the finished product - perfect!  


The website is totally interactive and you can customize every detail of the bedding!  Plus, you can change the wall, crib, and floor color to see exactly how the bedding will look in your nursery.  Warning - many hours can be spent designing and re-designing your bedding!  :)

My design...

And, here is the finished product...















I must say - I LOVE it!  Next week...nursery decor!

bits & pieces

Happy Friday lovelies!  The weekends are much needed as I near the end of my pregnancy (35 weeks tomorrow!).  I am one tired mama by Friday at 5!  We have now completed the nursery and all of our "baby classes" - so this weekend should be relaxing (my toes are begging me for a pedicure).  Here are a few fun bits & pieces from my week...

at home - coffee table style


After talking about coffee table styling last week, I did a little "sprucing up" project in our living room over the weekend!  I scoured the house for some odds and ends that would fit the project (treasure hunt!) and added them to the items we already had displayed on the coffee table, then picked up a few additional items that fit the look I was going for.  I am super happy with how it turned out - it is amazing how adding a few items can make such a difference!  Here is the finished project...
