A Big Step for Me...

So, I debated on whether or not I should even blog about this because I've kept most things like this pretty private, but it seems we go so long without having any real news to post, I thought, what the heck. We took a big step over the weekend and decided to paint our daughter's future nursery. I actually had already purchased her bedding earlier this summer because it was on final sale at Pottery Barn Kids. I got a great deal, and it was fun making the first (of what is sure to many) purchase for her.

Here's a picture of her bedding (although ours is lilac, not pink as shown; PBKids doesn't even show the lilac version b/c it's sold out. Also, I didn't purchase the bumper b/c I think she'll be too big for one anyway):



And after much debating, we decided to paint the whole room one color. Initally, I wanted to do something special with paint, like stripes or something to that effect, but the thought of painting over my hardwork in such a short time period (like when she moves to a big girl bed) made me think we should stick with simple. Here's the paint color we chose (the one on the top left):

So there you have it. Her room is starting to look less like a catch-all storage space and more and more like a real nursery. It gives me great delight to know that this time next year I'll actually have real baby to go with it.

I love it, Sarah! You're expecting like any other mom-to-be, just without an exact due date. I'm praying that your little peanut comes quickly!

Hi, Sarah! I lost your blog address after losing my computer for a month. I found it on my sister's computer so now I'll be able to keep up with you! I LOVE the color of the room and can picture the bedding in lilac. I bet it's beautiful!
