For weeks now I have been pinning my ideas onto my nursery/baby board on Pinterest but I needed to streamline those ideas.  So I decided to put together a more concise inspiration board. 1.  I adore this paper airplane nursery from Project Nursery. 2.  I love this Maskros Pendant lamp from Ikea and I think it would look great in our nursery. 3.  I pinned this image onto my nursery inspiration Pinterest board from here.  These dolls are called Ugly Dolls and...

Skip ahead a couple of weeks and I'm actually at the half way point!  Oh and we had our ultrasound on the 18th of this month and guess what?  It's a boy!  We are very excited but just to be honest, I was shocked.  I had such strong feelings that it was a girl but he surprised us all.  Since we thought it was a girl, we don't even have a boy name picked out yet.  We have a few that we like, so hopefully we...

Link to Girl or Boy? Using Old Wives’ Tales for Gender Prediction

I can't wait to find out if we are having a girl or a boy.  Honestly as long as the baby is healthy, I don't really mind either way.  So I thought it would be fun to look up some old wives tales for gender prediction and I also looked at the Ancient Chinese birth chart from Parents.com According to the Ancient Chinese Birth Chart, we are having a Girl! All of the following Old Wives Tales are from Parents.com Body Changes If you prefer sleeping on your left side, you'll have a...

Recently I have been planning our little one's nursery and the one thing I know for sure is that we will have a gallery wall on at least one of the nursery's walls, so I have been keeping my eye out for cute prints. I think one of these adorable prints from The Black Apple on Etsy will be perfect.

This little kitten reminds me of Olive.  I can't decide which one I like better.  Which...

I am officially in my 2nd Trimester!  We had a doctor's appointment on Friday and got to hear our little lemon's heartbeat again, which was 148.  Although my doctor said that is doesn't really mean anything, according to old wives tales 148 falls into the girl range.  That is kind of exciting but even more exciting is that on Friday we made our appointment for our sonogram which is next month!  I can't wait to find out what we are having.

Pregnancy Stats Weeks Pregnant:  12 weeks and 6 days Size of my tiny baby:  A Peach  ( Length:  3  in. ) My Weight:  122 lbs.  Total Gain:  7 lbs.  Starting next week, I am going to start weighing myself at the same time of the day which I feel will be more accurate. How am I feeling? Emotionally:  No change really.  I have felt really guilty lately for not getting things done because I would rather be sleeping.  I feel guilty that our Halloween decorations are not up yet and I know that seems silly.  I also feel really guilty that I haven't been posting...

Lately I have been really into looking for vintage baby items on Etsy and Ebay, especially vintage baby blankets.  I am planning a nursery or should I say trying to plan a nursery since I can't really plan anything until I know the gender of our tiny little baby.    But one thing is for sure, I really want the nursery to reflect our love of vintage. Here are a few baby blankets I love right now: 1.  Cutest 60s 70s Soft Cotton Baby Blanket from Old Growth...
