Virtual Home Tour

Nursery and Name Reveal!

I figured it was time to blog about the nursery. As we await the arrival of our baby, here’s an update of what I’ve been up to: Project Nursery.

I’ve cleaned and organized, emptied and reorganized, vacuumed, re-vacuumed – over and over again. Seriously, the baby needs to get here already because there’s only so many ways you can organize baby socks. Anyways, the room we used as the nursery is (Was? Still is) the guest bedroom. Here’s the first time I blogged about the Guest Room and how we designed it when we first moved in: Virtual Home Tour: The Guest Room.

After doing all of that, about a year later we decided to make it into a baby room when we found out about our pregnancy. It wasn’t a big project to take on since Russ and I are always switching up our room decor. But it was a slow process since it took me awhile to collect the furniture for the nursery. So let’s start the blog. (more…)

30 Week Pregnancy Update

30 Weeks 🙂

I did it! I made it to the milestone known as the 30 week pregnancy mark. Cue the anxiety and the excitement!

Then I watch their labor and delivery vlog/video and they look like they’re in a lot of pain. Then I watch their post labor video and newborn update, and they look tired…but one thing I always wait for when I watch these videos is when the mom holds her baby for the first time after delivery. I’m always crying at those parts. Or when they’re doing their post labor update and they tell you how tired they are but then they show you their baby and you see the moms light up. That’s the feeling and moment I want to bottle and focus on when I have to push this little giant out.

Anyway, here’s some specifics on my 30 week mark: (more…)

Slow Progress on the Master Bedroom

While we’ve updated most of the space in our condo since we’ve moved in, one room that we keep putting off is our own room: the master bedroom. I figured since that’s the one room our guest won’t be spending time in, we could save it for last. Well, here we are and we still have a plain bedroom.

We did paint our room white.

Virtual Home Tour: The Guest Room (Before & After)

It’s been awhile, but it’s time to continue the Virtual Home Tour. Here’s a look at before and after shots of our guest room plus some text about some things. Enjoy!

THE GUEST ROOM
 

 

I love our guest room because it’s actually very spacious, has a gigantic closet, and is the one room in our house that gets a lot of sunlight.
