Baby Room Remodel

Well, we finally completed our baby room!  Today, I'm 6 days overdue, so we are definitely ready for this little one to come out and enjoy her fun colors, great toys, and creative design.  She doesn't know what she's missing out on just yet, but here's a peek for you!

It's a Leotard Maternity!

I had an eighties leotard skate party for my 27th birthday.  I know - fun!  Now that I'm 7+ months pregnant, I decided to throw on the leotard and pull out the 80s wear for my hubby and take some fun maternity photos!  We are using the first one as the invitation for our upcoming baby party.  Although the leotard was tight, it still fit!  Check out our fun photo shoot:)

Gender Reveal Party

Well, this is a bit belated, but we had a gender reveal party in January to find out the gender of our little one to come!  We wanted to celebrate my birthday and find out the gender at the same time.  We had to wait 2 weeks after our appointment to find out - it was hard to wait, but so much fun to find out inside a cupcake:)

Well, it's been a while... again.  Now, I'm 6 months pregnant and trying to get back on the blogging bandwagon:) 

I thought I would start with a baby room update, considering baby stuff is kind of taking up a lot of my time and energy lately.

Oh, and the gender reveal!  We'll save that one for next time, though:)

For starters, this is the room we chose to transform into the baby room.  Keep in mind, this is the "before" picture.  Awful, I know.  It used to be my sewing room, and let's just say I'm a messy crafter!  Needless to say, we had to clean the room out and make some adjustments. 

The "Before"

We chose green and teal for our nursery colors before we even knew the gender, because we wanted it to be somewhat gender neutral.  Then, my husband decided to take on chevrons!  I was thrilled, of course, because I love all the pictures I see on pinterest with a chevron wall.  So, Brandon and his brother Jeremy went to work!

And, that's all of the room I can show you for now... It's almost complete, with furniture and all!  But, I am waiting to do the true Before and After pics until we have the final touches with a few last accessories.  Oh, and trust me - it looks great!

In the mean time, here are a few fun things we've purchased along the way!  Brandon and I decided we would buy something fun for the baby every month, with a limit of $50.  If we went under one month, we could add it to the following month and vise versa.  It's been fun - can't wait to buy our 7 month item in a couple of weeks!  When it comes to the bigger items, we just had to budget for those.  We weren't quite lucky enough to find a crib and changing table for $50:)
