Nursery Reveal!

Many people have been asking to see pictures of our little guy's nursery, so here goes...

I scoured Pinterest for months days trying to find inspiration for the nursery, but I never seemed to find anything that really stuck out to me. Then, I stumbled across the rug. I knew I wanted to bring out a bunch of fun/bright colors, and this was the perfect piece to do it. Plus... it just made me smile :D

The next order of business was picking out the crib, changing table/dresser and picking the paint color for the walls.

So long flowers!!

After 5+ samples of gray paint, we finally made a decision

I found the exact dresser I was envisioning on Craigslist. With a little paint job, it would be perfect for the changing table! I forgot to take a good "before" picture, but here are the "during" and "after" pictures...

I couldn't have done the nursery without the help of my amazing husband and parents who spent almost a week installing a ceiling fan, closet doors and recessed lighting... let's be honest, the boys did the manual labor while my mom and I went shopping for final decorating touches for the room :)

Here are pictures of the final project. It is now officially ready for his arrival!

Robot Baby Shower!

Back in January, my sister-in-laws threw me the cutest shower.

Here are a few pictures from the day...

My mother-in-law is known for making amazing cakes, but this time she totally outdid herself. She made a robot cake for the big event. 

I mean seriously... how CUTE is this cake??!

My sister-in-law Heather, who also hosted our Gender Reveal Party, was gracious enough to host another event for us. I owe her big time!!

It was so much fun to have my friends and family there to celebrate our little guy.
