So the pottery barn curtains did not work out, they only sent me one panel, when I thought I was getting two, so it would have been too pricy. But I am glad because of course City Craft fabric had way cuter options. So I got the fabric today and finished my curtains today! Here is your "sneak peak" picture. When the nursery is done I will take pictures of the whole room, it's gonna be so great!

Maternity Pics!

So I dragged Paul out to the Dallas Arboretum yesterday morning and made him pose with me and take pictures maternity-style. We took our tripod and set it up and ended with some pretty cute shots! I have been putting most of the good ones through the instagram app on my phone to give them some interesting colors and textures, so I'll post all those later on.

Going with these

I have ordered these curtains from good 'ole Pottery Barn for the nursery.
I'm hoping the red and yellow will look good with my plans for the room!

Tootsie Approved!

Here is the changing table all dressed up and ready to use! I'm so thankful to Barry, Paul's step dad, and future grandparent, for making this excellent table. I told him what I wanted and he delivered, and it is made impeccably because he's great at this kind of stuff.
I made a cover for the changing pad out of oilcloth (not sure why it is called this, but it is like vinyl but thinner, which means I can wipe it clean!) bought from City Craft here in Dallas. I stained the wood very imperfectly but I like the color.
And I added the little heart cuz I'm cute.

Of Course

I have been keeping my eyes peeled for some cute curtains for the nursery and haven't seen anything good. I was cruising Target's Web site looking at all the Missoni stuff, which is pretty much all sold out on the second day they released the collection! I came across these curtains which I would have purchased in a heartbeat because they would have been perfect in the nursery!
But no, I guess they are sold out and I don't know if they will get any more...


I just feel like I've been kinda busy lately!
My changing table for the nursery is in my posession thanks to the wonderful Barry, and I am about to go stain it. So I'll have a pic soon of a finished item ready for my baby's sweet little bottom.

just a recent phone pic...

Here's some pics from Last weekend

We went to Ft. Worth on Friday night and had dinner with some friends. I wore this 12 dollar H&M dress and rocked it maternity style.

Then we went to Waco on Saturday and spent the day with Meg and Mark, topped off by attending the Salsa-Margarita festival and country music concert. We sampled some salsas and margaritas (only 2 little marg samples for me) and then people watched.
