Nursery beginnings...

Picture this.

6 month pregnant woman squished in the back seat, ear to the roof, sitting indian (well, Native American) style ON TOP of the seat folded down, next to 2 gallons of paint, a large box containing a gazebo, a bag of chips, and peanut butter M&M's (hey, don't judge, all this shopping made me hungry).

We had so much stuff in the car, that I couldn't fit in the front seat. It was a short ride... and now we have all this new stuff! This is what happens when you make a home improvement trip in your car... instead of your truck. Lesson learned.

So in nursery news, we picked out the paint. Which was overwhelming to say the least. We decided on Lake Country (I tried to find a paint chip online but I couldn't find one). Here is a room with walls that are "Lake Country"


I think we're going to skip the lady painting in Ezra's room.

The fabric's that I picked for the bedding are here:



The striped fabric is for the crib skirt, the circles and swirls are going to be for the bumper. Since I'm sewing my own bumper, for less than 20 bucks, I'm not concerned that I might only be able to use it for 5 minutes - until it becomes a safety hazard for the babe. I also bought enough to make some other things for the room, possibly curtains, pillows, who knows.

All we need now is a nice white ceiling fan, and the room's complete! (well, the getting the things for the room is complete, assembly is for another time)

Here's me at 24 weeks 1 day



I officially lost my feet this week somewhere between here and Washington DC. The adventures in DC will have to be for another day... M is still having a hard time laughing about it all.
