Slowly but surely



We finished our bedroom...sort of! We have been living in this completely under-rated gorgeous master bedroom for the last year, due to my partial color blindness (or at least that's what I blame). When we first bought the house, we painted a nice accent wall in our master. Well, it wasn't the warm taupe that I envisioned - it was gold. Yep, like purple and gold - go Dawgs. Who can decorate around that?! So for Christmas, my wonderful husband said that I could get new bedding for our room, and that we could re-paint the wall (he had originally told me that since I picked the ugly gold, I just had to live with it). Man, was I excited! We spent all last Saturday taping, cleaning, prepping and finally painting our room Elephant Grey (that's what the paint color was called). I LOVE IT! It adds a level of sophistication to our master that sure as heck NEVER existed before. Granted, I still have a few finishing touches to add to the walls (hang a couple more pieces of artwork, possible drapes, etc.) but as you can see from the picture above, we had a lot of work to do to make it look like anything like a married couples should.

The picture is slightly misleading because I realized I never took a picture of the ugly bedding and ugly gold that existed prior (for good reason). I'm also starting to see a pattern with my pictures. The last two posts, I have to put in the disclaimer "slightly misleading" - haha. This isn't my real life, just the life that I want you all to see. :)




Next up - baby's room!

Inaugural Post

Well, this is it! I have truly migrated into mommy-ville I feel like with an official blog!

I gotta tell ya, I have been waiting for this moment for a long time because I do follow so many fun blogs of other families and think...hmmm, I can't wait until I have something to blog about and can have randoms looking into my life without me knowing! :)

But with baby boy on the way, I know that my parents, Blake's parents, and many others would love to stay informed about my belly growth, nursery stuff, and just how life is changing rapidly around us even though they can't be here to enjoy it with us. Next on my list is to get a legit camera so that we have fun pics to upload onto this blog!


So here is the first public belly pic.

I semi-cheated because this was actually like 3-4 weeks ago and I definitely have grown since then. :) But YOU try posting pictures online of how much weight you're gaining and no longer fitting into your clothes. Give me a break. It takes time.

I actually have my first baby shower next week that I am SO stoked for (staff gals) and will prob have some fun pics from there since I'll be able to rope my friend Leah (the other pregger) into being in the pics with me.
