and the fun has begun...


After finding out we were expecting, I couldn't wait to find out what we were having so we could start on the nursery! In the mean time of waiting to find out, I had convinced myself we were having a boy. And because I KNEW it was a boy, I had decided exactly how I wanted the nursery to look. I would share, but it was such a great idea, that I hope I get to use it one day! :) So hopefully sometime in the future, the idea will be revealed! Once we found out we were having a baby girl, I moved back to looking at girl bedding and ideas. I had already book marked the bedding I ended up getting some time ago, but I continued to look to ensure I didn't find something better. I am still SO happy with my bedding choice and the ideas I have for baby girls nursery...I just CANNOT wait to see the finished product!
Justin's uncle is painting the nursery for us and he started TODAY! Justin and I spent about 4 hours last night cleaning out closets, rearranging things and getting everything ready. We cleaned the carpets and all! Here are few before and during pictures. Hopefully I will get to post the finished product tomorrow!
 
First, this was our office and then a storage room...now, empty and waiting for paint!
Half-way there! The bottom will be black and cream striped to match the bumper!
Quick shot of the closet since I was in the room...filling up FAST!
I had a friend from grade school call me one day last week and she was getting rid of ALL of her baby girl stuff...clothing, shoes, blankets, bows, etc! Her baby girl is almost 2 and she has a baby boy on the way. They do not plan to have anymore kids and she didn't want to give the clothes away to just anyone. I am SO thankful she chose to contact me! There are FOUR bags of clothes, sizes 0 through 9 months. The best thing is... her baby girl was born in December too so the sizes couldn't be better. Her mom and mother-in-law have GREAT taste so most of the clothes are Old Navy, Gap, Children's Place and even a few Ralph Lauren dresses!
So this is the back of my car...which will have to find a place in that room! :)
