Nursery Love

I can't tell you how relieved Taylor and I are to have jumped the 11 week hurtle with our little nugget! I feel like I can start enjoying my pregnancy and start planning his/her entry into this world.  My blogging the past couple of months took a serious slow down because every time I sat down to write a blog I wanted to type "We're having a baby!" over and over. I can't express how blessed I feel knowing that in 6 short months I will be a MOM! It still all seems so surreal.

Now to the fun stuff :) I've had my nose in pregnancy books for the past 3+ months so I took a little break to play Nursery. For all you future/expecting Mom's out there, Lucie's List has really helped calm my nerves  with her breakdown on important purchases for your baby.

I have a couple rough drafts in the works for the Baby's nursery. A little Mid-Century modern because I just can't help myself.

5) Conure Rug from Anthropologie

2) Tao Lamp from Bungalow 5- Linen Shade

5) Accent Table with Drawer from Target: Laquered Cream

6) Burr Velvet Pillow from Ryan Studio: Caramel

7) Nyvoll 6-Drawer Dresser from Ikea: Light Gray and White

8) Flakes Stone Woven Wool Rug from Capel


I still can't decide which direction I want to go with the nursery. I am tempted to do something a little more "sweeter", but for now this is what my mind keeps leaning me towards...we will see where I am in another month or two :)

3 Super Stylish Planners for 2013

2013 is going to be my most organized year yet! I have vowed to cook in more and be more organized! I haven't really used a planner since I graduated college, but now that I have one again I don't know how I ever survived without it! Tayphill thinks I'm crazy for not keeping my schedule on my iphone but kids, I need a reminder to set a reminder.
Here are planners I had in my top 3.



I have always heard great things about this planner. This is for the SUPER organized wannabe. Complete with tabs and colorful stickers.
