What's Goin' on?

Here's a sneak peek of our exciting lives this weekend.....

 My dad built this bookshelf for Brodie's room, but it is painted in the "old" color scheme. Greg will finish painting it to match the new scheme as seen here!

I am almost done with these bad boys!

and then there's this coming in! (Can you hear me squealing from your computer? I wouldn't be surprised!)

Check the blog out on Monday to see everything in place!!

Just a little Pillow Talk

As I sit, patiently freaking out, waiting on the arrival of our sectional, I have been dreaming of the pillows on it. How many is too many? How many patterns can I use before it looks schizophrenic? 

Here are some pictures of sectionals and the many different ways to accessorize with pillows.

How many pillows do you have on your sofa?

Baby, Baby, Baby OH

As I get closer and closer to the great day of meeting my son, I am becoming more and more anxious about parenting and have been having a million "What the heck are we gonna do when..." moments.

So today is audience participation day. If you have any experience or thoughts about my questions PLEASE respond. I would love to hear everyone's opinions.

1. Sleeping baby- on his back or stomach? I see complications from both- although the norm these days is to put him on his back, what happens if he spits up and begins to choke?

2. Pacifiers-- I have heard if you are solely breastfeeding that you should not introduce pacifiers. Is this true? When do you introduce it, if you wait a while?

3. Full time mommy--full time feeding machine.  How do you make it work when you have a full time job and solely breast feed?

4.HOW in the world can I keep my house CLEAN, laundry done, and cook meals while taking care of a little one?

5. When do you sleep?

6.Since this is babe #1, how do you keep a good relationship with the hubs? When do you talk about real things?

7. How do you save for your children? Do you save for college or just a general savings account?

I can't thank you enough for your tips, tricks, and ideas!

Do you ever find yourself staring at a picture for minutes on end just basking in it's beauty? It doesn't happen often to me, but this design has me captivated.

It's clean, crisp and modern without being cold. It still feels "homey". There isn't much to not love in this design!

The designer is Betsy Brown,  a Birmingham based designer and is "On Display" (sorry for the RHNJ reference) in House Beautiful.

Check out her website- she is pretty darn good at what she does!

Sorry guys, it's been a while since my last post, but trust me, things have gotten totally crazy around here. Not much design stuff is going on--but there should be plenty of updates next week!

In the meantime, Greg and I are taking some time to have a last little mini-vacation to Lake Martin this weekend. So here are some images that have helped me get to the weekend and hope they help you too!

Catch you on the flip-side! Have a great weekend everybody!
