New things

Hello again! It has been awhile, but we have been busy - Ryan has been working like a mad man on the house. It all started with wanting to take the popcorn off the ceilings, and we ended up painting - the ceiling and walls, cleaning the carpets, putting finish on the floors, replacing all the molding . . . did I mentioned we have been busy?

In the middle of all of this I had my first baby shower, which was Amazing! The gals who threw it for me put in so much thought and detail - way more than I ever expected! I love you guys soooo much! I was also so blessed and humbled at the shower by all the gifts for the baby. I even received all the bedding and an adorable mobile to match (seen in photo below) from a number of ladies! I will share more later when I get more pictures of the event.

After the shower I was so anxious to put everything in a place, so Ryan worked hard to get the nursery done first!!! Here a few pictures of the bedding, crib (from Ryan's cousin), and of course Ryan's beautiful work on the room. The color of the paint is a little off because of the flash - it is called "mocha". Enjoy!

everything looks so cute in the nursery! Now I just need to get over and see your place all spruced up! Sounds like you and Ryan are "nesting" my favorite part of pregnancy:). It was really fun at your shower I can hardly believe baby K is coming so soon!!!

Thanks guys! I just got the bumper that Jenny gave us in the mail yesterday - so now it looks even cuter! I will post another pic soon.

Yay, I'm so glad the bumper arrived! I love the mocha color and can't wait to see it in person.

What a fun shower...I'm a little disappointed I didn't win anything but aren't I always?
