A peek into the nursery...

Man 'o man, I thought holiday seasons past were busy.  But this one took the cake.  On top of the usual hustle and bustle, we have been busy preparing for our newest family member.  But it has all been welcomed chaos, and we are so excited to be so close to meeting our baby girl. 

That being said, certain things have taken a back seat, like this little blog.  And as much as I'd like to think I will pick it back up while I have some time "off", I know I need to be realistic.  I'm pretty sure all I will want during any free time will be a nap and a shower. 

I wanted to at least put a quick post together though, to show where we are with the nursery.  It's about 90% complete.  Just need to finish a couple sewing projects, like the crib skirt, and get shelving hung to create some display space.  Other than that, the room is ready, the linens and adorable little clothes are washed, and we are just waiting on the baby! 

Here are a few photos of my newest favorite room in the house...

{Don't worry...those pillows and bears will come out when baby goes in.}

{Still need to hang two long white shelves on this wall}

{My parents brought me home in this little sweater and booties, and we will bring our little girl home in them, too.}


{My parents helped us sand and paint this estate sale armoire.  It's more coral, less pink in person.}

{Along with this Value Village dresser.}

 {Love the original pulls!}

So there you go - a little peek into our nursery.  I should have some better photos, of the fully finished room, a little later on...once its tenant is all settled in :)  I hope she likes it!
