Today was a pretty productive morning in the Tree house.
I've found that I either have very productive mornings or very productive afternoons. Today it was morning, I cleaned out the fridge, took out all the shelves, hand washed them all and threw out all expired food. Now we have a nice clean, empty fridge. Well don't worry we still have Reeses Peanut Butter Egg's in there. Gotta get that pre-preggo body back remember? Peanut Butter Egg's are the first step.
This afternoon was not productive around the house, but it was still productive for me because I had an old friend stop by to see Eli and bring us dinner. We spent the afternoon talking about mommy-hood and all the crazy things that happen that nobody tells you about before you have a baby. It was so fun and I am so thankful for friends that I can share life with.
This morning, during my productive phase I tidied up Eli's nursery so that I could snap some pictures for the ole blog.
Several people asked if I was going to show his nursery, and I planned on it but never got around to it, until now.
I didn't really have a "vision" of what I wanted for a nursery. I spent a lot of time in the beginning of my pregnancy looking at various fabric websites and putting together bedding designs.
I thought about ordering from those websites, but decided to have my mom make the bedding. Why pay someone when my mom could easily do it?
So one Saturday in the fall my mom and I went to some fabric stores to find the perfect fabric for baby boy's room. We didn't shop long because we quickly found two pieces of fabric that I loved (one for the bumper one for the skirt). They weren't fabrics that were typically for a nursery but I loved them and wanted them.
After we found the fabric everything else was built around that color scheme. I'm not the best "decorator" so I just kinda went with the flow. I still have some items I would like to add to the room (like his newborn shots and a picture of me and Luke). But I figured I can show updated pics when that time comes.
