Almost Christmas!

I promise more fun pictures of baby A in the near future as we get more settled (I know you were really worried). We are just figuring more and more things out each day, it is quite an adventure...
She actually slept for 7 hours last night! It was crazy.
How cute is she in her stroller bassinet?

A couple sweet pictures!

We had a mini photo session and got a couple cute ones!
This sure is crazy just hanging out with my very own precious daughter, it's safe to say my routine has drastically changed, I can't wait until we make our own little routine, right now we are both still learning, but its all pretty great.

Love Her.

And just like that, She's here...

Well you probably have heard by now that we had our baby girl, Amelia Louise Yarbrough, last Thursday Dec. 1st at 1:09 am! Currently sleeping like an angel, we are amazed that she's ours and finally here to have and to have hold!

(More quality pictures to come...)

Well look at this!

I made this advent calendar this afternoon. A hanger wrapped in fabric, then I tied the numbers to ribbons and tied them in bows, and you just untie a bow on each day, kinda cute eh?

-picture I took this weekend with my phone-
With about a week and a half until the official due date I of course am wishing that I could meet our little one NOW! But there is just no really firm way of knowing when she will be here. So this week my plan is to continue to clean (how can I still be cleaning? because I'm nuts...) decorate for christmas more (I'm sorry thanksgiving just don't have lot of decorations for you) and sew, and see if there is ANYTHING else I should get for baby girl's arrival.

Only November 14th

But I know I am already thinking about Christmas and trying to start buying gifts for my loved ones. Especially since when the little lady hits the scene, things will no doubt get complicated when it comes to preparing for Christmas!
I can't really reveal the things I want to get people (I already have some good ideas!), since most of you reading are going to be a recipient. But of course I can always post things I have my eye on!

super cute planner from paper source, mine is almost out, and these Minnetonka moccasins, again my green ones are on their last legs...

Madewell, cute sweater.

I really want a dress form just like this one for my sewing! My mom and Meg and I have been obsessing over owning our forms for a while now... but they are not cheap...

These bags are super pricey but I like them, just fun to pick out...( Marc by Marc Jacobs above, J.Crew below)
And these awesome bracelets I love, from J. Crew

Though really I am so excited about just sitting around the house listening to Christmas music, smelling some Christmas baking (might need my mom's help on that) looking at a lit Christmas tree and holding our precious child, I mean what could be better? Probably will be the best Christmas ever...

And maybe someday...
No, definitely Someday.

Burp cloths

I've just been having fun making all these burp cloths! I started by dying the cloths different colors then sewing on scrap fabrics, easy and fun.

SO excited!

To share photos of my finished nursery!

let's start with BEFORE:



And now AFTER!
I was going for a vintage kids room feel, with an emphasis on red. I am pretty pleased with how it all turned out. So now one month from TODAY our little girl has a room all ready for her.

I made these curtains when the ones from PB didn't work out, definitely a good call.
The mobile and sign I made, I have done a lot of head scratching and eye squinting since I put up the sign, maybe didn't quite turn out like I was hoping. I'd love to hear your reaction (the words are a quote from a song by the Swell Season, I've had it stuck in my head since I heard it and wanted to have something in the nursery say this to baby)
this lamp shade was scored from a cute vintage shop and I turned it into a pendant lamp
the beautiful books Meg gave me, kind of served as inspiration for the room!
and there you have it.
Thoughts? Reactions? you know I wanna hear 'em...
(in other words, please tell me what a great job I did.)

Best baby costume !

Congratulations to Everett for winning my favorite baby costume. Kudos to Katie for undoubtedly putting this together, he looks so great! And stinking adorable!
Happy Halloween!

A busy week

Lots on the books this week, except I don't have a job, so that helps...

Here's our stroller!

Just got it today. I have been walking my imaginary baby in it around the living room, it handles like a dream.

Pictures from Tyler TX

A couple weekends ago Paul and I decided to take a little mini trip somewhere, and we ended up going to Tyler because we saw there was a rose festival going on. We had a pretty good time!
There was Putt Putt...



He beat me by one stroke :(
And Roses!!!
Lots and lots of them



Someone didn't quite finish painting these roses red...
