The Tree Of Lauren

One of my incredi-friends, Lauren, painted this tree on a friend's nursery wall. I am going to have her paint the same one on our wall except no birds, we are going to have an owl. Jed loves it too, and I'm so excited!
And guess what! Downtown Presbyterian Church begins tomorrow night. We are so excited for the services to finally begin and cannot wait to get started....

The Hoodlum's Room

Jed has been in Bulgaria and Slovenia with Blake and his dad for the last week and so he has not seen this. But he returns tonight and I'm sure he'll be ecstatic (note extreme sarcasm) about all that we get to do together this weekend-approve nursery fabric, register at Target, sign up for a birthing class, etc. I asked if I could plan a Saturday date for us soon (meaning an actual date, NOT doing baby/house stuff) and he wanted to know what we'd be doing. I told him it was a surprise and asked him why he HAD to know, and his response was that my idea of a fun date was doing chores. Ha!

SO I think Mom and I decided on these 2 fabrics. The first will be used for a skirt for the crib, the 2nd for curtains, and we will use brown minky dots for the bumper pads. I am still going to have Lauren paint the tree mural and will show you the one that she just finished for her good friend in the next blog. Yay for choosing!

Okay, I know I haven't been on in forever. And, I don't know if this will be the start of my actual blogging again, but I wanted to give a short update and get some opinions (which might take awhile since I probably lost all 3 readers that I even had in the first place).

1. I'm pregnant with a boy and due May 27th. We are beyond excited. Sometime I'll share about's a real long story.
2. My parents are back in their house following the fire, total gutting, and rebuilding of their house. It is BEAUTIFUL! My parents worked their hinies off all day every day for 6 months and it really is remarkable. Sometime I'll have to show before and afters.

SO-I am in the process of figuring out what to do for the nursery. I don't want to go crazy but my mom said she's make some curtains and bumper pads (she's amazing if you haven't figured that out) if I found fabric. I really LOVE owls but couldn't find pre-made bedding with owls I liked and that was affordable (yes, I've seen Dwell Studios $360 set). SO-what do you think of this??

The last picture is my FAVORITE. I also have an amazing friend who could paint some of this on the wall.
OK-that's all the blogging I can take for now, but hopefully I'll come back soon.
