Stephen surprised me Friday afternoon by putting together the crib all on his own. Verdict? It's incredibly nice and sturdy for just $299. If only we could find an equally thrifty and awesome dresser!
There's still time . . .
We don't want to post photos of the to-be nursery just yet. One reason: It's not done. Of course it's not done yet -- we still have a while! But, we ordered the curtain fabric (should be here in a couple days) and continue to play with the exact scheme. You'll notice a floral rug. What's up with that?
Well. We're want the room to be a cool, new space, but also use
The pillows on the rocking chair won't be used as-is. But I'm thinking of doing some surgery on them (with my mom's help) and using the front, circle-embroidered panels to make appropriately sized cushions.
We picked up these pieces of art at Home Goods for $6.99 each. Super sentimental, no? I love how they go with our chalkboard wall! I also think they'll per a fantastic, simple compliment to the Wes Anderson movie prints we ordered.
Back to the owl for a moment. This piece was a bit of a splurge at $50. And it doesn't really match. Eh -- it's special. We bought it (her?) in Cape May at a place called Happy Baby. Made by Etsy store Mimishop, the cutie plays the lullaby song!
In other news, yesterday's run -- a 15K -- was HOT. I had planned it for a long while. It was on my list of 25 goals. Now that I'm 20 weeks, I need to start scaling back on the distance. I've read in various places that the second half of pregnancy is when you need to take it easier, and I feel it now, too.
But Stephen joined me, and it wasn't too shabby . . . I felt strong and confident the entire time.
More on that tomorrow. Along with my short-term fitness plan/goals. Let's just say that summer heat is a force to be respected. And respect it, I fully intend to do.
