We are officially 2 months (or sooner) away from meeting our baby girl! I have finally organized Hampton’s new room and Baby Girl’s closet, and I have officially started decorating! I know I know, it’s about time. With all the adorable nursery ideas on Pinterest, I just couldn’t decide what to choose. With less than 9 weeks until she arrives, I still have a lot to do around here. It’s times like these that I am very thankful for Etsy. I was so exited to find these adorable baby blocks from Blockaholic Boutique. They are so adorable and GREAT quality. I am loving these blocks for a baby boy. Are they not the cutest? They are real wood, painted and personalized. They can be customized to your specifications. Since we didn’t know our baby girl’s name until just recently – yes, we FINALLY have a name!! – I ordered the blocks to say “bebe Cantrell” instead!
Since we have waited so late to decide on a name, we are going to wait to announce it until she is born, however, you will get a sneak peek at her initials later this week! I’ve got to keep you guessing! 🙂
I’m so thankful to have finally started decorating her nursery. Luckily, I don’t have much more to do. I have one more shelf to decorate and I need to find something to put over her crib. Other than that, we are all set! I can’t wait to share more details of her nursery with you as I complete it!
Be sure to check out Blockaholic Boutique on Etsy! They have the cutest blocks and nursery decor around!
This weekend was equally crazy, scary, exciting, fun and about a million other emotions. At my doctor appointment on Thursday, we found out that when our insurance policy changed, so did the amount of money we will owe the hospital after baby. Let’s just say that number grew by an extra zero. So there was that. Even better? We had just purchased brand new furniture the day before and it was literally being delivered to our house while I was at the doctor. To say that news stressed me out is an understatement.
We are absolutely thrilled about our new couch and chairs. It is so exciting and terrifying to make a big purchase like that, but I’m so thankful we did and our house finally feels like it is coming together a bit more. I even caught Hampton enjoying his bible stories book on one of our new chairs. As soon as he spotted me with the camera, he began showing off. haha He is a mess.
Friday and Saturday, Hampton stayed with his grandparents while Ryan and I attended a marriage conference. It was such a blessing to gather with other Christians and refocus our marriage on God and putting Him in the middle of our relationship. We learned a lot about how to deal with conflict and decisions which was really interesting and definitely encouraged us.
All in all it was a great weekend. New furniture, working on our love, and a baby-free night! While I did miss Hampton terribly, it was so nice to have a night off. We haven’t had that in a very long time.
How was your weekend?
Ryan and I have been so blessed with an amazing church family, family and friends. We have been so overwhelmed by their support, prayers and beautiful gifts over the past few months. Our little boy is already so blessed and has more clothes than I do. Our first shower was held in our church building and honored us and 3 other couples. It was a very special night.
|My cousin actually had her baby 4 days after this picture was taken! We are so excited to welcome Natalie to our growing family!
I’ll post about our third shower once I get some photos back from it. 🙂
Hey lovies! I have a special treat for you today! Jackie is taking over my blog and will be sharing some spring decor with us! Please stop by and visit her! Welcome, Jackie!
Hi everyone – I’m Jackie and I am so excited to be guest posting on Logan’s blog! I blog over at Jackie Jade – where I talk about decorating and updating our 1940s home. I also blog about what is inspiring me in home decor and in fashion. We are also slowly starting to plan out our wedding and I post tons of photos of my pugs too!
I don’t think I am alone in my dreams of spring. I live in western Pennsylvania and it seems like winter is lasting forever. I can’t wait to wear t-shirts and sandals. For my home, I can’t wait to bring some spring in as well.
One of the easiest ways to update your home decor is to change up your pillows. It’s a great way to change the whole look of the room and there are some great affordable options out there too.
Here are some of my favorite spring pillows out there right now.
What’s your favorite place to buy fun new pillows? I hope you’ll come check out my blog – Jackie Jade and say hello! Thanks to Logan for hosting me!
I haven’t linked up with Michelle in a few weeks so I figured today would be a great day to share some Pinterest loveliness with you!
