I’m holding down the fort here with two kids in tow these days, so life has been a bit more busy to say the least! It’s all good though and we are loving every minute with our two little dudes. On that note, I happen to have a couple minutes here while both of them are napping and thought I would finally share the (mostly) finished product of my big boy’s modern/rustic hockey bedroom. A few of you have asked to see the progress from previous posts and in honor of the NHL playoffs right now the timing seems fitting. Plus, lets be honest, I don’t have as many opportunities to jump on here, so enjoy!
My best friend, Eileen, from college is due with her first baby (bonus…just two months after me)! We dreamed about the timing of our babes happening like this and it just so happened to work out with her first and my second. And they are both boys! I cannot wait to share mama-hood with her and watch these little guys grow up together!
Here is a look at the travel and safari theme baby shower (to coordinate with her adorable nursery) that a few other ladies and myself hosted for her at my house this past weekend.
Whoa! Where did time go? My little bambino and I are at the 9 month marker! Why does it seem like the first 8 weeks drag by and the last 4 weeks fly at mach 10 speed? Either way, I am so excited to meet this little guy! One more month of this belly growing even bigger.
This past weekend I was beyond blessed to experience an amazing maternity session with my bestie at Photography From Eileen. She never ceases to amaze me and I cannot wait to share her work with you! Here are just a few of my favs from my snowy outdoor and snuggly indoor maternity shoot.
I’m officially in total nesting mode over here at 34 weeks. After finishing little Luca’s nursery this past week (with a ton of help from my pro-DIYer mama), I am excited to share it! Here is Luca’s woodland style nursery with a modern approach to coordinate with the rest of our home.
All of the furniture is from Rocco’s nursery, so this time it was all about the fun stuff! My vision of a reclaimed wood accent piece kicked off the planning process. The current home decor trend of combining rustic with modern inspired me to create a fun focal point above the changing table dresser. After explaining this idea to my mom one day, she was certain we could bring it to life. The wood is actually leftover from a basement renovation at my parents cabin. My mom and dad put it together and I added the marquee letters and an arrow from local craft stores. I love how it makes the room feel modern yet classic.
