I'm in love with this owl:

Other really insanely cute items on the Tiny Warbler Etsy site too.

I heart Letterpress

But a letterpress clock!? Come on, that's genius.
Pretty darn cute for a baby's room.

Come on, get social

Once upon a time, I was merely dreaming of decorating a nursery. Now, the work is in full swing. We've taken over our "office" (more like storage room) right across the hall from our bedroom, slowly but surely transforming it into a gender neutral (sort of) nook.

(* Side note and funny story ... when I told my mother that we weren't finding out the sex of the baby and were designing a pretty "gender neutral" room, her response was "Oh honey, how wonderful. Now you're really giving the baby the option." Uhm, of deciding it's own gender? I think not, mom.)

For whatever reason, from the time a baby was even a thought in my head, I was obsessed with finding bedding. Since the journey to conceive was a long one, many of the sets I found were discontinued before I was ready to purchase. So, imagine my surprise when my dream set (the unattainable, uber expensive Caden Lane bedding I longed for) showed up on The Mini Social for 1/3 of the original price! (I might have pulled my husband out of court to request the go-ahead to purchase.)

This is just a sneak peak of what's the come with the nursery. We're wrapping things up this weekend, so before and after pics will be posted shortly.

(PS - If you'd like an invite to The Mini Social, drop me a line. I've already spent WAY too much money there.)


Maybe it's just the hormones, but I think this ice cream cookie is JUST what I need right now. (Also, can I just say,, how did I not know you existed! It's like a dream come true.)
And, Pretty Little Thing, you constantly entertain and inspire.

Old Navy inspiration

It seems like just yesterday I was preparing for a wedding and enjoying the generosity of family and friends at my showers, but eee gads it's been over 2.5 years! Suddenly, I'm preparing for the baby shower festivities to being. (I don't know about you, but I've always thought baby showers were MUCH more fun.)

I've been shopping around from some attire inspiration, since to be perfectly honest I feel like a bit of a heifer, and would like to look pretty darn cute at my shin-digs (yes, plural). Here are two pics from Old Navy that I've got in hand as I set . Stay tuned ... actual outfits will be posted soon. Wish me luck!

Thawing out from a long winter...

This post will come as a surprise to many of my loyal followers ... my dear friends. My absence from this site is quite unforgivable, but I promise that I have an excuse:

(Well, maybe it's not a 9 month excuse, but as of today it's a 30 week excuse!)

Clearly a lot has been happening in my life, and though I've remained addicted to all of my favorite blogs, I seem to have neglected this one a bit, no? But, with this post, I am officially back. Promise. I have a plethora of house updates to share, plus the most incredible Internet finds and lots of little baby treats too!
So, stay tuned (if you're still out there!)
