Nursery 2 Details

       This nursery was a guest room and the room where junk came to collect. I do everything on a budget so when I wasn't re-using pieces from Abram's nursery I tried to DIY or buy from discount stores.         We moved the full size bed into Abram's room with a new frame {his toddler room update is coming soon}, and moved his crib into the nursery.  I also used the glider we had in his room and shopped my house for other decor.        I made a simple,...

Don’t Stop Make Believin’ Nursery | Home Tour

       A full 6 weeks after having our little girl I finally "finished" her nursery. If you've seen my first nursery for our son, you know that I try to mix and match elements to allow the room to evolve so it is never really finished. I also don't love specific themes, just general ideas to give me direction. My son's nursery was all about adventure and being "wild and free". I seriously thought about doing a gender neutral nursery this time around, but quickly...

1 Month Old | Baby 2

       We hit the 1 month mark on Sunday, and daddy and I had our first night away on Saturday. We went to the LSU game which was amazing. When we got back it seemed like Julip grew over night! Her going home outfit no longer fits...

Little Miss J

We had Julip's newborn pictures schedule for 5 days after her due date {which was Wednesday}, luckily the photographer {Jasmin Chen} worked us in 3 weeks early so we could get them when she was only 6 days old. Some of my favorite newborn pictures of Abram's are the ones where there is nothing covering his head so I avoided buying hats for her. I wanted a simple look, and honestly I hadn't finished getting everything bought and decided on for the pics when she arrived so we...

Introducing Julip Pearl

So much has changed since my last post. I took my 36 week picture at my baby shower and hit 37 weeks the following Wednesday. That day consisted of trying to finish nursery projects, organizing our house after the carpet installation moved EVERYTHING around, and making returns with Matt my chauffeur because I couldn't drive. At dinner that night I mentioned to Matt how strange I had been feeling all day, but we brushed it off as a long day in the summer, while being 37 weeks pregnant. The couple of nights before...

8 Months

I have officially hit 8 months {I'm actually 37 weeks now} and crossed the threshold into pure discomfort. I've also kicked nesting into overdrive now that I am home all day. I'm not sure why the arrival of a new human in your family makes you want to purge through all of the "things" you thought were important in the past. Our garage is full of goodwill/habitat donation items.  If you follow me on instagram, you may have noticed that we got new carpet this past weekend too. We really...
