Wish List: Fish Hook Bracelet

I love to fish. Seriously. J and I call it couple's therapy. Since being preggo, though, I've missed out since last summer. So when I saw this Miansai hook bracelet at J. Crew, I immediately emailed the link to J. Who knows, maybe he'll surprise me with it some day soon? :)

WIWW: Preggo Edition

Yeah, I finally remembered to link up! :) The weather's getting hotter (100 degrees, anyone?) and the laundry pile's getting taller, so some of these aren't so great. I think I got them in the right order, though -- it's amazing how different my belly can look just day-to-day. Just a little over three weeks to go!

Oh, and I'm starting to think I pay Target's light bill...

Thought the outfit was boring, so I tried to do something extra for the hair ~ a little pony with a flower band from Target... eh, alright I guess...

Hi Baby

As we get closer to baby's arrival, I've been casually searching for cute birth announcements. Not sure if these are my favorites because I like the actual card, or because the babies are just adorable!

I also like the idea of doing a magnet version for close family and friends. We all end up sticking them on the fridge anyway, right? :) Know of any other great places to find announcements?

Baby Room: Before & After

Guess I missed WIWW again... oops! Maybe next week? :)

Super excited to get new bedroom carpet installed today, even if it means our house is now littered with bedroom furniture and crap. Over the last few months, we've finally gotten around to fixing up our room, so I'll show it off after the carpet's in... and every thing's back in order... maybe a week or two? :)

In the mean time, the baby room is really starting to come together. Which is a good thing considering we only have 4 weeks to go, if that!

So incase you missed the "true" before, you can see it here. But here are a few of the clean befores:

And the afters:

You can read more about hanging the moulding here and the not-so-great paint experience here. It was hard to find curtains in the right length without having to special order, but we finally found these brown ones on sale at Pier 1. Will be perfect for blocking out the afternoon sun!

LOVE this curtain rod from Lowe's. J thought it was a little girlie at first, but he likes it now that it's up.

J also hung the new ceiling fan (Lowe's again... I think we're paying their electric bill...) in place of the crappy gold flushmount.

And also hung a new light fixture over the sink. Guess where we got it?

Still need to paint the bathroom (probably just a brighter shade of white), but it's starting to look cute. And most of the accessories for the bathroom? Baby shower gifts from Target!

So the Potterybarn towels I ordered don't exactly match, but I still like them. Maybe I'll just stick them back for when baby's older...

Still loving the crib my parents bought us and the Target bedding (geez, maybe we're paying their electric bill, too!).

Added the little sheep rug...

And the vinyl tree from Babies r' Us.

We flanked each side of the crib with storage cubes from IKEA and storage boxes from various places for books and toys.

Still need to get the dresser upstairs, which we'll also use as the changing table, and I need to finish his letters and pillows. Also have some other adorable baby shower goodies to put out, too. Overall, I think it's pretty darn cute, and it's fun to finally see it come together!

I'm sad I missed linking up to WIWW this week, but I'll just add the photos to next time. Baby caused a little excitement over the last few days ~ some really nice contractions and mucho uncomfortableness. While I guess he's decided to stay put, it did give us a chance to practice our breathing techniques, and I got some awesome back rubs :)

With just five weeks to go, this cartoon definitely sums up my thoughts right about now...

We've got some of the details up in the baby room, so I'll share over the weekend. Happy Friday!
