Nursery Talk

So, as I mentioned in our previous post, we’ve known about Baby T being on the way for several months now. In these past few months, we’ve mostly been reading books to learn about what to expect during the pregnancy and how to prepare for when the baby comes. But, a couple weeks ago, CJ and I were talking about how we’d like to decorate the nursery (what is currently the guest room) and I decided to start looking for some ideas online. I found a few cute ideas that went with what we were envisioning on Pinterest and decided to “pin” them.

Once we made the big announcement, we had at least three ladies tell us that they suspected something when they saw me pinning nurseries. Maybe I’m just an amateur Pinterest user (I only went on when planning our wedding, to find ideas for a baby shower that my sister and I are planning for our lovely cousin, and occasionally to get cute outfit ideas) but I would never have suspected anything if I saw someone pinning nurseries. Maybe because I’ve pinned cute baby outfit ideas years ago and was pinning wedding ideas before being engaged, but I tend to think that pinning is for you to save an idea for later… whether or not that “later” is in the near future or way down the line. But anywho, I learned my lesson. No “pinning” unless you don’t care about people suspecting something before a big announcement. 🙂

So, what are our plans, you might ask? The room is currently painted a light gray which is a nice neutral color so we are thinking about painting large white stripes on one of the walls as an accent wall. We might have the color scheme stay gray, yellow, and white. But we’re not sure yet, we want to wait to see if we are having a little boy or girl.

Here are a few ideas we have:

Nursery Idea #1 – Love the branch idea

Nursery Idea #2 – Love the stripes. These are on all walls but still super cute.

Nursery Idea #3 – Here’s closer to what we were thinking for the wall color.

I like the overall theme of the first two photos better and how light and airy to room feels but I think we might just paint one wall like in the 3rd photo. We’ll see. 🙂

For all the moms out there, how did you decide how to decorate your nursery? We’re pretty excited to get started on the project but are planning on waiting until after the holidays.

Coming Together

I just realized we haven’t updated you on our formal living room! The room is quite a bit different than the last time we posted about it.

Here’s what’s changed:

  1. Painted & retextured the room
  2. Bought a coffee table, area rug, side table, and little tree
  3. Hung blinds
  4. Finally hung our beautiful painting!

We love how everything has come together! It really feels like a cozy little room now. We love it.


I still need to take a photo of the room with blinds… I’ll get around to it soon enough. 😉

I have been super busy lately at work which has shown in the frequency of my blog posts. Not to worry, I’m having a ton of fun and soon enough, I’ll have more time to update you on the changes that have happened in our house lately.

I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend! In 2 weeks and 2 days it will be our 1-year wedding anniversary!! We are soo excited to celebrate and can’t believe how fast time flies.
