Here it is! We had so many projects lined up, we were able to complete almost all of them with the exception of the custom closet. There is just not enough time in the day to tackle everything. We decided to move the custom shelving project to our pantry which would be 100 times more beneficial to us. So that will be a future project.
Since we are not finding out the sex of the baby we decided it was best to go with something gender neutral for the nursery. Most of you know I love pandas! This was the perfect opportunity to incorporate pandas into the mix. I did not want to go black and white theme and base it just on the pandas, so I thought why not make it jungle themed/ABC themed. That way I am not limited to just buying panda items. My goal is to keep the nursery colors fairly light and pastel-like. That is just always how I envisioned our child's nursery to be.
So its official, we are going to be parents!!!
We are due October 17th, 2015!
We made the announcement on Easter weekend to all our family and close friends. Everyone was really excited for us. It was super hard to keep it a secret until 12 weeks but we did it! We told a few of our close friends very early on and we told our parents after our 8 week appointment.
Give someone the gift of recipes:
I cook alot, people are always asking me can I have that recipe? As I cannot claim the ownership for a majority of my recipes (thank you pinterest) I thought it would be nice to share a few simple yet delicious recipes as a gift. It was super easy, I just printed the recipes, laminated them, then purchase a few small kitchen utensils and attached them to the recipe cards. I chose to laminate them because after all they are in the kitchen and things can get a little messy when cooking.
We had a large crowd of family and friends visit us for Christmas this year. I spent alot of time pre-planning the foods we were going to have and less time on holiday projects this year. This was a fun and inexpensive project AND best of all these can be reused for years to come!
I planned a little surprise party for my Husbands birthday. I thought it would be fun to make my own decorations. They turned out to be a hit! Of course I cannot take all the credit for them, the ideas came from Pinterest.
