A Couple Nursery Pictures

Ok, so I was finally able to upload a couple pictures of the nursery from our computer. The lighting wasn't great, but you should get an idea of what the space looks like. I'm working on a much larger post that has some before pics. I also still have some hanging and arranging to do before the nursery will truly be done. I'll make sure to include details on everything in the larger post. In the mean time let me know if you have any questions. I hope you enjoy. It's definitely one of my favorite rooms in the house!

Valentine's Day Traditions

Do you have any Valentine's Day traditions? Growing up we always had a special dinner. My mom would decorate the table and get us some little valentine treats. The meal would also be something we didn't get all the time, like a good steak! My sisters and I always looked forward to this special dinner. My husband and I have continued this tradition. We didn't start continuing the tradition until after we got married, but we've done it every year since we've been married. We decorate the table and cook something we wouldn't normally cook. The last couple years we even switched it up a little more where one year I planned the menu and fixed everything and the next year it was his turn to do the same. We've enjoyed these special dinners and look forward to adding a family member to next years special dinner. I've include a couple pictures from the night. We kept it pretty low key this year on the food side, but it was still so yummy. We (really Dan because my back was killing me) made Penne a la Betsy via Pioneer Woman's cookbook. It was so yummy and so easy, definitely recommend trying. For dessert we made oreo milkshakes. I was going to make Pioneer Woman's Red Velvet Cake, but wasn't quite in the mood to bake. I think I'll try tackling that this weekend. So, what are some of your Valentine's Day traditions?

Target Find

So, I went to Target on my lunch break today to get a few things and ended up finding this outdoor pillow for $12.99. Yes, it's a copy of KWID Imperial Trellis, but I just can't get enough.




I got the navy and white, but they also had a brown and green trellis. I'm sure they will go fast, so you might want to go ahead and do some spring shopping!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Having a nice lunch and afternoon with some of my best friends. It's a good day off work!



Some flowers I picked up last night at Trader Joes. I'm so ready for spring.

8 weeks away!

I can't believe in 8 weeks (give or take) I'll be meeting our precious baby boy! It's amazing how quickly the time goes. It seems like you'll never get to the end, at the beginning, and then all of the sudden your like, the baby could be here any day.

***The photo is mainly for my family and friends who aren't around to see my grow.
