Sneak Peek: Semi-Homemade Black & White Nursery

Because I want to prove to y'all that I really AM still here... because you haven't seen peeks of ANYTHING fun and semi-homemade out of me in forever..... because it's spring and nothing says spring like LIME GREEN!.... and because, if you're like me, it's been one of those weeks where you could definitely use a pick-me-up.....

Here's a sneak peek of Baby #3's nursery! 
There will likely be a decal in the space above the crib... Just waiting to see if it needs to be boyish or if we're gonna go girly!

I just LOVE the bedding!  I sent some fabric ideas to Mellissa at Mellissa's Boutique on Etsy and she made it happen!  She let me mix & match my own set, based on what I wanted or didn't want... and that helped me keep my costs low. 

I also got some great stuff for #3's room at my shower last weekend! 
My sister ordered a custom mobile - elephants in black, white and chartreuse! - from Lollipop Moon on Etsy.  Looks like Sarah is trying to catch up on orders, so she's taken her listings down... but as soon as mine comes in, I'll be excited to share it!

And my brother and his girlfriend (okay, let's not kid ourselves,  my brother probably STILL doesn't know what they got the baby!) bought us this cute hamper!  Now GT can have his blue one back, and the nursery is set for all the onesie laundry this kiddo can bring!

Whew!  After an evening of Braxton Hicks, lower back pain, and spending the entire evening on the couch... this momma is off to bed.  Happy weekend, y'all!

A Hangover Party! (No, not for me... yet!)

I was starting to get several emails and comments of concern so I wanted to apologize!!  And let y'all know that I AM still around... still pregnant... and very much suddenly on the countdown.  Last week the exhaustion hit and this week I am definitely moving slower.  But if all goes to plan, we'll have a newborn in about a month (and if all goes according to history... we'll have one in a few wks!)

And I wanted to share this AMAZING idea with y'all!  I have to admit, I've been pretty MIA in the blogging world lately (not just as a blogger, but a reader, too!)  But I just came across this and I'm already thinking this would be a PERFECT way to celebrate mr. fix-it and my 10th wedding anniversary next spring!

mr. fix-it and I LOVE Vegas.  We love The Hangover.  So... what better way to celebrate a big milestone anniversary than with a Vegas Hangover celebration!  Ohmigosh, this is truly amazing... and inspiring.. and SO FUN!  I'm about to make mr. fix-it sit down with the laptop and look at every last, hilarious detail.  Love it!  You can read all about the Hangover-inspired party here.

Thanks so much for all the sweet emails and comments of concern.  I promise to keep you posted better during this last month as we prepare for Baby #3 (which is still a surprise - our latest gender pool has the guesses at 60% boy to 40% girl, so it's a close race!)  And - I know this is sad - but I'm looking forward to getting in ALOT more blogging while on maternity leave... when I'll have a teeny bit more time!
