holy moly!

I am so beyond excited about this! 
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ 
MAC is debuting a line of makeup inspired by the Disney Villains we all know and love [except for Maleficent - she scares the crap out of me and I don't love her]! 
But the rest of the line looks 
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!





I can't wait!!!! ♥
Can I buy them all??? Pretty please?!?!

craftiness?

Not really....

But I did update our doors at the house!

This is the baby's room:

Here is our bedroom:

And my office:

I got all the decal sets at the dollar store! Super deal! We even got some more for once the baby's room has been painted and set up.

Now I'm working on making a baby notebook so I can write down all the things I need to do before she gets here that I'm forgetting at an alarming rate...


I just hope I don't get distracted and forget to make the notebook! =P

Update:

I buckled down and did the notebook right away - next time though, remind me to not get contact paper at the dollar store.... It's a little thin. =P




i love this guy....

Isn't he just the cutest??? ♥


work in progress...

I'm working on the garland for the upcoming baby shower. I've cut out a ton of felt triangles and I hope I have enough. I need to get some rickrack so I can test out the length and see if it's going to be long enough. Luckily felt is pretty cheap so I can always add more and more triangles if I need to...



There's just so much to do by October! And my brain is slowly disappearing and I'm forgetting more and more each minute it seems... I need to break out one of my many composition books and use it to start documenting what I need to remember and do for all the baby stuff! ♥

ch-ch-ch-changes....

We had the big ultrasound Friday and it looks like we're having a GIRL!

And now that Nick is adjusting to the idea of having a little girl, he's chiming in with his ideas on the nursery... And apparently he's not super down for the whole foresty theme that we were thinking about originally. =/

So after some intense brainstorming in the car on the way to San Francisco to see Wicked, we compromised on "Neverland" - and no, not the Michael Jackson version. So now I'm scouring the internet, looking for inspiration...

I absolutely looooove this print from Red Velvet Art:
I think it's going to be the inspiration for the walls in the nursery... That way, we'll still get to have pirate-y things as well as mermaids, fairies, little lost boys and Tiger Lily!

My mom found this awesome website that has some cute ideas for the shower... But all I really want to have is a dessert table, so everything is secondary. =] Amy Atlas has some really awesome presentations and I love this idea:




Plus, Nick bought me a little sewing machine so I can get to work on making pillows for the room! Yay!
