Nursery Sneak Peak!

So I know I haven't blogged in a LONG LONG time, but I am determined to start up again to keep all our friends and family updated on our upcoming new addition! I am due on September 26th, meaning 11 days and counting people! At my 36 week appointment my doctor freaked me out and said I could have this baby within the next 1-3 week because I was already dilating and 80% effaced. So that news was pretty nerve racking, but here I am over 38 weeks and still no baby. I feel like a ticking time bomb. Every night I think to myself "This could be the night!" I guess this little girl is just being stubborn.

Anyway, I thought I would do a nursery sneak peek before the baby is born. I have been working on this room for quite some time now and have really enjoyed designing/putting everything together!

Here is a full room shot (sorry I'm not a photographer).  It took me a while to come up with a color scheme, but I finally decided on a muted turquoise, pink, cream, with gold accents. I am pleased on how everything came together.

Luckily my mom gave me her crib, changing table, and cradle! They are pretty old, but all in great condition!
I made these storage totes out of cardboard and hot glue and covered each one in fabric. I also sewed the changing table pad cover to match!
I made this mirror out of plastic spoons, cardboard, gold spray paint, a mirror, and hot glue. This project took a while, but it is by far my favorite thing in the room. I also made the "You are my sunshine" frame. I bought the frame from DI, spray painted it white, and created the quote on Adobe Illustrator. The miniature banner was just some of the left over fabric I had.

 I found this glider chair on KSL for only $15! It is in great condition and I didn't have to do anything to it! 
I bought this chalkboard from JoAnn's and just painted the frame and added the flower and ribbon to hang it.

I made these cute headband holders from some wood samples I had from when I worked at the Standard Plumbing kitchen and bath showroom in Rexburg. I knew I could use them for something! All I had to buy was the hardware and then add the ribbon to hang. 

My sister Tasia made this cute plaque and I absolutely LOVE it!

Can't wait to bring out little girl home!

My mom is the best. She is such a calm person and is always thinking of others. She has always been a great listener when I need someone to talk you and gives me the advice I need to hear. She is a great example to me and I'm so lucky to have her in my life! I LOVE her so much and I wish her the best Mother's Day!

My new mom ( mother-in-law), Julie, is AWESOME! She has been there for me ever since I started dating Chad in high school. We have had so great conversations throughout the years and I wouldn't take those moments back for the world. She is so fun to be around and love that! I feel so lucky to have such great in-laws .... so Happy Mother's Day!

Day 30

Today I am headed down to Utah to catch my flight to go home to Colorado tomorrow! Before I leave I get to spend some time with my best friends in Provo! YAY! Here is a picture of my parents lovely home. I'm so excited to get away for a little while, but at the same time I will miss Chad (I wish he could come with me!). P.S. I checked the weather and it's suppose to be 70 degrees! WAHOO!

Day 29

Going to the zoo is always so fun! It takes me back to my elementary days when we took field trips :) It seems like every time I go I see something or learn something new! These pictures were taken at the Dallas World Aquarium a few summers ago when I went to visit Chad and his family.


Look at the detail on this thing! Amazing!

Day 28

I'm so thankful for church music, especially on Pandora Radio! This type of music helps me feel calm and remember what matters most in life. When I have a tough day I know I can turn on some church tunes and feel SO much better. There is something about music that instantly soothes bad feelings. I love this quote.

"Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul"

Day 27

I am so grateful for my wonderful husband Chad. He is the most selfless person I know and I always feel so safe when I'm with him. He has such a strong testimony of this Gospel and is a great example of faith. He can always make me laugh no matter what mood I'm in. He is always there to talk to and somehow he always knows the right things to say. I love him. I love the way he makes me feel and his genuine personality. It is hard to believe that Chad and I have known each other since our Junior year of high school! So here is a look back in the old days...

Day 25 & 26

My Uncle Dave is the most talented artist I know! Dave has worked on many Disney films including Alladin, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, 101 Dalmations, and more. Here are just a few of the many caricatures he has done.

Isn't he great?!?
