Nursery Mode

Our white Graco crib was delivered to my porch today. It was a very prompt shipment I might add but, the box is a bit messed up so I'm hoping it is all in tact inside. I love decorating and always dream about the fun things I could do with my house if I had more money but, let's face it....what is money?? haha. So, that being said, my goal is to create a very simple, yet girly room that requires very little money to decorate and minimal effort on my part to prepare as I just don't have any of either of those things at this point in my life. I am going to be painting the walls a bright green, hence a few of the pictures above for inspiration but, our little girls room won't be looking like a designer showcase as most of these pics do rather more like the second picture. Basic yet, cheerful:).

In other news: I am 6 days shy of the 6 month mark but, my stomach would like to disagree because it looks like a 7 month belly. I basically popped all of a sudden about 2 weeks ago. Now my stomach itches on a regular basis from the rapid stretching (yes, I am using lotion as best as I can) and our little girl is kicking much, much harder:). I sleep horribly at night. Scratch that. I don't really sleep much at all these days because my back is really achy and I still pee 5 times a night so I feel like a walking zombie most days. It's all good though. I'll take exhaustion and back aches over depression and nausea any day! I have started getting a pretty regular headache everyday now too and I have found that drinking a small amount of caffeine really helps take the edge off. The doc. says that is aok so no worries. I will post a belly picture soon I promise. I never knew it could be so difficult to consistently take a picture every week on the same day in the same spot. That requires me to get dressed and look halfway presentable and I just don't do that every Tuesday folks:). haha. Anyhoo. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! God Bless each of you this Christmas month!! xoxo.
