Welcome to the world...

Welcome to the world Penelope Reese!


Born Thursday, November 7th, 2013
7 lbs, 0.5 ounce - 19.5 inches



We're doing great over here! Got home from the hospital yesterday and we're busy adjusting to life as a family of three! As soon as I have some time, I'll fill you all in on Penelope's birth story and how everything went down.  

Until then, I'm totally in love with my new bundle of joy! I might be a little biased but she is just perfect and the most beautiful baby I've ever seen! :)

Nursery Reveal!

Happy Monday everyone!

Well, I had my weekly doctor's appointment today and it looks like I'm 4cm dilated and 90-100% effaced now so I definitely made some progress from last week!  I tried to get the doctor to tell me when she thought I'd give birth, but she played it safe and was like it could it be a couple of hours....it could be a couple weeks.  YES-weeks? I was like no no...don't even talk to me about weeks here!  Lol sooo fingers crossed I have this baby in the next couple days!  With being so progressed, I would be surprised if a week goes by but who knows.

In the meantime, I thought I'd finally give you a treat and post my baby girl's nursery reveal!  You may recall this post from back in June--I was thinking I'd do her nursery in a pink and grey theme. I was all on track for that when I found a fabulous rug on RugsUSA.com during their July 4th sale.  It was 70% off and I couldn't take my eyes off of it and I knew that was it!  That was going to be the center of my inspiration for this room! The room is small so it was hard to take a lot of pictures in it.  Without further ado, here is her nursery:


Taken from the doorway



The card in the mirror is my baby shower invitation. I might frame it and hang it somewhere or just find a special place for it!


The reading corner. It looks so empty right now but we have more books coming from my mom and from my in-laws!



I wanted you to see the chandelier! I love this piece! It transforms the room.



Nursery source list:
Since I took these pictures, I made some small changes to the changing table.  I got a cute diaper caddy from Pottery Barn Kids and I now have all my things organized in there.  I've also added some more stuffed animals around the room.

I hope you like the nursery!  This is the first room I've done, top to bottom so I'm very excited about it!  I love pink so I couldn't resist using a lot of pink in her room but I tried not to make it super "baby-ish". I wanted the room to have a classy, glamorous feel to it and I think I accomplished that.  These pictures don't seem to do the room much justice but I can't invite you all over here to see it for yourselves! :)

Now, keep your fingers crossed and hope that the next time you hear from me....I will be announcing the arrival of my baby girl!
