Finally around 7am, I crawled back into bed while Alex fixed us decaf coffees and bagels for our usual Sunday breakfast. After eating, we laid around in bed a little longer until I just couldn't take it anymore. So up and at 'em. We cleaned the bathrooms, hung shelves in the nursery, assembled the Pack n' Play and took a vacuum to the floors. All this and it was only 9:30! We could still make it to church if we wanted to. I'm not thinking I want to.
Every day is day of preparation for little Eleanor. We are anxiously awaiting her arrival and in anticipation I obsessively clean the floors, bathrooms and kitchen daily. On Saturday we ran errands to Target, Babies R' Us and Ikea to pick up a few final items that we needed. So Sunday morning was a matter of finalizing all the preparations around the house. Now I can't think of a single thing left to do until she arrives. Check out her beautiful nursery that we put together! Photos are all compliments of my dear friend and talented photographer Sadie Culberson.
Pinterest and decided to attempt it myself. I hand-stitched 5 little elephants and stuffed them with cotton balls. They are strung together and hung on a simple wreath from Hobby Lobby that I also spray painted with the same buttery yellow paint. I am not a very crafty person so I was very concerned this would not turn out. After hanging it I was pleasantly surprised. I think it is simple and darling!
Also hidden in the photos above is Alex's amazing wallpaper job. We bought this wallpaper shortly after moving into our house. It was on sale at Lowe's for 25 cents a roll. I had nowhere to use it but just loved the soft and cheery pattern. When we started piecing together the nursery I just knew we had to use it. It is my favorite part of the entire room!
