Gift bag turned wall art

When I went to target and saw this gift bag I knew I needed to have it. But I thought it was too cute to give away, I wanted to keep it for years to come and put it up every christmas!

I looked for a frame to put it in for a while and couldn’t find anything so I thought I would put it on our chicken wire frame, as well as all the christmas cards we have gotten! Hopefully I will find a cute frame to put it in for next christmas but for now I am loving how it looks in its new home.

Baby Shower!

Over the weekend some of my best friends held a baby shower for me and the little sir. It was beyond what I could have imagined, down to every (rustic, woodsy, whimsical) detail they planned it perfectly. There were diapers for friends to write cute/funny sayings in, rocks to get written little pieces of advice, and a tea bag that said “a baby is brewing.”

There were lots of tasty treats (my favourite being the candy obviously), and a beautiful cake with little deer on top!

We played some fun and unique baby shower games that had everyone laughing! Then I got to open all the presents! We are beyond blessed by everyone’s generosity for this baby. We are overwhelmed by how much has been given to us, and we are truly thankful.

Jello shots where a must every time I opened a present and someone said “awe.”

Nursery Progress

We have made some great progress with the nursery over the last few weeks! My friend Leah painted us the most beautiful canvas of a deers head that we put on the wall right by the door.

My good friend Niela gave us this amazing unit to put on our wall that we still need to hang! I can’t wait to find lots of treasures to put in it! So far I have a globe, clock, mason jar, and a candle. Steve found a classic old school skateboard at the antique mall, and my antlers came from my neighbour. On top of the dresser we will put a change pad which will take up most of the space, but for now I just have everything sitting on top of it.

My mom and I went to West Coast Kids and found the most beautiful glider/reclining chair. I am in LOVE! It is the perfect color, and the perfect amount of comfy.

This weekend while I was working at the salon, Steven and my brother-in-law were busy putting a wood wall up in the nursery. A few days earlier we went and got really thin pieces of pine, and three different stain colors. Steven stained them a few days before he put them up on the wall behind the crib.
