andrew's nursery!

finally getting around to posting andrew's nursery! 
we've had his room done before he was born but hey 6 months later i'm sharing it. 
i won't ever forget the memories of painting, decorating and getting all the furniture for this room with the hubby. we had late night paintings and putting the crib up and driving to ikea late at night to get the dresser. those memories i'll always cherish.
when i found out i was having a baby boy i looked on pinterest for ideas for baby boy rooms and everything for a boy was dark green or navy and i'm not the biggest fan of those colors. 
i wanted something different and my style! 
finally we decided on the colors mint, black, gray and white. 
i loved how it all turned out. brandon and i always say its our favorite room in the house! 
here are some photos of andrew's little nursery below! 
nothing is more fun when you're pregnant and you're getting your baby's room ready!
also thank you to my wonderfully talent mother who practically sewed everything in this room.  
you're the best and we're so lucky to have you!
here is a blog post of what the room looked like before it was all done. 
boy it sure has came a long way! ha

 we always talked about taking our children there and feeding the ducks and now its actually happening! we're doing what we always talked about! so crazy. 
ps. andrew looks so big and long in that photo!! he's determined to not stay little.

happy 23 birthday to me!

im 23 years old! 
i feel like that's soooo much older than 22. ha!
andrew woke up extra early because i think he wanted to get the party started and to see daddy before he left for work. it worked out good because i got to open one gift
 in the morning from brandon. which was a birthday shirt! 
later on my mother and i went to gardner village and shopped around and had some lunch. 
i love that place. on my birthday is was super rainy all day long. i can't remember the last time it has rained on my birthday or if it ever has so that was a change. we had to carry umbrellas around! 
after we went to brandons work and hubby and i and andrew went to city creek and did a little more shopping and went to the cheesecake factory. (which was delicious!) 
afterwards we came home and finally opened some presents ha!
it was a lovely day and i got spoiled! 
i'm exicted to see what happens in this next year! 
^^my brother and sister in law decorated my bedroom. 
it made my day and made me feel so special!^^
^^it was a down pour at gardner village all day! we were crazy to stay and shop around in it!^^
^^my mother and i in her favorite fabric store. i don't sew but i will admit there was darling material and she was totally in heaven!^^
^^THOSE BLUE EYES. (waiting for daddy to get out of work!)
^^my talented mother made me this pillow and i LOVE it.!^^
^^hubby bought me a cake and honestly that jester was so thoughtful and cute!^^
^^andrew being all mesmerized by the candles!^^
