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.”

Notebook

IMG_8651

A little over a year ago I read Ashley Ann‘s blog post on her “thankful” journals. The next day¬†I went out and got some notebooks to keep in my bed side table. Every night I think about one thing in my day that I am thankful for, and I write it down. Some days it’s a big and important thing I am thankful for, and some days its just a small detail. I love that everyday, even if it’s a bad day, I find some good in it. Writing it down makes me thankful for every day that I have. The best part is reading back on everything I have written down, you can tell which season it is or what I was going through in my life at that time.

Nursery Inspiration

It’s time! Time to start planning our baby’s nursery. In this post I am going to show you a few different photos so you can get the idea of what I am thinking of doing for our boy’s room. These next few photos are the crib that we bought and have set up in his room already…

I am thinking of going with a rustic/industrial/antique looking room.

Behind the crib we are thinking of doing a wood wall, in a lighter grey/brown tone. On the wall we are thinking of putting the baby’s name up with the metal letters from¬†Anthropologie, like the letters we have in our¬†bathroom.

Yarn wrapped antlers are showing up everywhere now, and I’m hoping that we can incorporate it somewhere in his room!
