The bedding arrived yesterday!


I experienced what felt a little bit like Christmas last night after work.  The bedding arrived and I was so excited to see it.  I had hoped I wouldn't be disappointed because I loved it so much on-line.  I wasn't.  It's perfect.  Worth every one of the hours I spent searching for it!  J likes it too which is great.


Here is the room itself with just the crib and changing table in it.  The two plush blocks on the floor are from two of J's Aunts/Uncles.  Very sweet.  I put the bedding in the crib just to get an idea of what the room would look like.  I have been thinking for the past few days that the tan walls wouldn't work.  I think we need to paint them a pale pink.  With the brown carpet and tan walls, it's just not girly enough.  We're still waiting on the mattress, that is why the bumper is sitting so low in the crib.  I love my two pieces of furniture for $110.00!!!!  Who says new is better?  I love these two used pieces from craigslist far more than anything I saw in the stores. 




I love the spindles.  The antique style is a perfect match for the bedding.


Here is the changing table.   It just fits between the two windows in the room with a half inch to spare on each end.  The changing table that matched the crib didn't have room for the wipes and stuff on top like this one does.  That was important to me.  I wanted the important things in reach.  the spindles on the end of the table match the ones on the bed even though they are from two different manufacturers. 


We went back and forth about which guest room to use for the nursery.  We ultimately went with the room I wanted but the real winner is Wilson...he gets to keep his boom-boom room where he can hump his pillows all day.  This is him after the ultrasound last week learning he has a baby sister on the way.  He seems a little worried.

So cute!! I definitely think the room needs to be painted pink though. It would make it so much more feminine.

Love your doggy too, he is so adorable!

Cute! How fun to get to get to decorate a nursery. I looked longingly at our designated nursery room today . . . hoping to use it someday for that purpose!

Thanks for thinking of me! I can't believe it, and am so proud of myself, but I have not POAS yet. My beta is tomorrow! I'm nervous . . .

Love it! I agree with you though, a pale pink would look beautiful on the walls.

P.S. - Love that Wilson can keep his "boom boom room" :)

I hate surprises too, but I hate negative hpts more! I have seen too many of them. I am having weird (symptoms?) lately. I am nervous, though, because they could just be progesterone-related or they could be bad signs. I just am driving myself nuts analyzing everything that's wrong with me. I guess tomorrow will be soon enough to find out!

Lovely and cute!
Give the dog a hug from me. He is cute too! I have two dogs and I know that Coffee (our smaller one who sleeps on the bed) would be so jealous if a baby came along.. well she is our baby for now..
