Along with all my fall projects (which are coming along nicely- I’ll post about those soon!), I have several projects that I want to do to Baby Girl’s room that had to wait until AFTER she was here!

(Ha, she must’ve known I was writing about her, and she wants to know what I’m saying because she was happily playing in the other room on her floor mat, and just started to yell! She’s hangin out in my lap now so she knows what’s goin on!)

I have several things that I want to re-do or touch up in her room and since most involves painting, I decided to wait! Plus I just didn’t have the energy! It took me forever as it was just to decide on a theme for her room! I knew that I wanted Hot Pink, Black, and White – with touches of Aqua Blue. It was next to impossible to find anything I liked in stores or online, so I put my head together with my wonderful friend Chaundra and came up with her decor!

Here’s a few pics of her room! (click on them to see them better!)

(See that balloon way in the left corner? Yeah, it’s a day younger than her!
It has been alive for almost 11 weeks!! Talk about some super helium!)

Most of her decor is from Hobby Lobby or Target. The bedding, curtains, and glider cushions were all made by Chaundra and the material is Michael Miller Fuchia Plain Jane (small for the curtains and bedding, large for the glider). Fell in love with it instantly!! It was brand new so we had to special order it! The reverse side of her bumper is also a Michael Miller polka dot, and I think the aqua blue blanket hanging over the crib may be Michael Miller as well! (I’ll have to ask Chaundra!)

Here’s my project list for this room!

  1. Paint and add flowers to little heart shelves (Done!!! See my next post!)
  2. Paint the chest in front of her window and make a cushion top for it
  3. Paint the glider white
  4. Get the changing pad for the changing table (it’s a towel on top of a scale right now because it has been out of stock!)
  5. Paint the shelf bar the monogrammed burp clothes are on
  6. Rearrange the shelves
  7. Put pictures in the frames! 
  8. Possibly line curtains (they keep the room pretty dark, but I’d like it to be darker!)
  9. Make aqua blue tie backs for curtains
  10. Make magnet board (out of same fabric as the blue blanket hanging on her crib
  11. Possibly make “stems” for the flowers hanging above her crib (I feel like it need something else!)

Lots of work to do, Baby Girl!!


It’s been over a year since I’ve posted, and I have been dying to get back to writing and sharing my favorite things! Who knows if anyone does or will still read this, but here goes……..

Here is my newest favorite thing, AND part of why I’ve been completely absent from the blogging world lately!

This little beauty entered our lives in July! I can’t describe the amazing feelings that motherhood has brought to my life. Everything seems fresh, new, and hopeful! She is a doll!!!

I am sooooo in love!!!

Along with growing a baby the past year, I’ve moved TWICE (uuugghh, not our choice!), was sick a lot with baby, and was working on getting ready for her! Its a lot of work!

I’ve been inspired to do lots lately along with tackling the daunting task of motherhood! So far, so good- we’ll see how it goes now that I’m starting to share! I’m on an organizing, cleaning, decorating, crafty kick and have lots of plans up my sleeves. I’ve also just started a “Biggest Loser” type bet with some members of my family! I’ve got lots of baby weight plus some to go!!

To end my first post back, I’ll share Baby Girl’s current favorite thing……

Her WubbaNub monkey– a small stuffed monkey attached to a soothie pacifier.  Courtesy of Auntie Linda. She LOVES it. Already holds onto it, although it’s way too early for her to be able to put it in her mouth herself! Man, I’ll be glad when that happens! She can be screaming like crazy, pop it in and she’s a happy camper. It falls out, and she screams again! Love it! Love HER!!
