It always amazes me what a little paint and artwork can do. We recently updated our kitchen door, and I love the drama it adds to the room and how much more sophisticated it feels. Keep reading to see the before and after!
The countdown is on! Only three more weeks, give or take, until we meet our baby boy. I love how the nursery is turning out so far, and wanted to share a few snaps with you guys. While most people like to have the nursery fully done before baby’s arrival, I guess I’ve learned that’s not really my style ;). It took us a while to finish Piper’s nursery, but we loved it so much it was well worth the wait. Looks like we’re on the same track with this little guy, since we’ve had a lot of other projects going on as well. We’ve completed a complete bathroom gut and renovation this year, and are working on a master bedroom revamp, so we’ve been busy!
We still have to get a changing table, hang and decorate some shelves, and put up some curtains. One thing I have to constantly remind myself if we don’t get it all done is that he’ll never know the difference ;). He’ll be in our room for a couple of months anyway, so we’ve been putting a lot of energy towards that room to make it nice and cozy.
We’ve been trying to talk to Piper a lot about the new baby. She knows ‘baby boy’ is in mommy’s tummy, and she loves to go play in his room. We also have doctor’s appointments once a week now, so when we go she knows we’re going to listen to baby brother. I’m planning on taking her to pick out a gift for him, and then we’ll have a gift for her from him when she comes to meet him at the hospital.
It’s all getting so real, and it’s hard to believe we’ll be a family of four in a matter of weeks! In the meantime, you’ll find me cleaning with every spare second and soaking in time with Piper as our only little one.
I struggle so much with dry, flaky skin and chapped lips in the winter. But, I’ve found if I’m really on top of it by caring for my lips, it makes a huge difference. There’s a few products that have been lifesavers for me, and I use religiously in the winter months. Keep reading for how to keep your lips hydrated and healthy.
This bump has really decided to make it’s debut. It’s funny being pregnant in the winter …. I guess because you’re wearing more clothing, a lot of people don’t really even notice you’re pregnant until the third trimester. But there is now certainly no denying it!
