Baby Nursery Complete!

After a slow start this morning (I slept until after 10:00am for some reason) I ended up having a fairly productive day! Our house doesn't look like a tornado hit it and I accomplished quite a few things. First off I cleaned out our refridgerator. I know that this doesn't sound like a huge accomplishment but trust me, when you save food like we do but don't ever eat leftovers, it adds up. Now I feel like I can actually see into our fridge again. After the fridge I tackled the even bigger task of cleaning out our garage. It wasn't that there was that much STUFF in there but there was so much dirt and leaves that I don't even know where it all came from. I moved our bikes into the basement (since god knows how many times I have "tapped" mine with the front end of the car) and all miscellaneous things OUT. I swept out the whole thing and now it looks fantastic. There is nothing in there now and if I come home to find out that "someone" has started storing things in there again, we are going to have some issues! :) Friendly warning.

After my cleaning frenzy I decided that Evans' nursery was probably never going to look as good as it does now so I took a few (okay 28) pictures of it to share. I know that I have shared most of these at some point so this is the last you will see of it, I promise. The only thing left that we are waiting on is the glider/rocker and god knows when that will arrive.Evans' bath towels.View from his room. Nice huh? Sure beats his parent's view!Evans' cute lamb chair from his great Aunt Kay and Uncle Frank!Picture over the door from his Grandmother Susie (even though we are not positive this is what she will be called!).Super cute laundry basket.His name letters made especially for him by his mother. :)The AWESOME Jonathan Adler rug that Susie bought him. It was very interesting getting this to Germany from the States!Some shots of his crib and bedding.Inside of closet. This will probably be the one and only time it is organized!And last but not least his cute lamb sign from his Aunt Tate that hangs on the outside of his closet.Taa-daaaaaa......That's all! Believe it or not I had more but I realize that some people will probably stop reading my blog after this post!

I fetched Deaner from the base this afternoon when he got back from Brussels. I was lucky enough to get this from him when he arrived!!And look what was inside!!!!YUM!! I can't think of a better treat than handmade Belgian chocolate!! Now I will just have to restrain myself from eating them too quickly!! We have just enjoyed a nice SPICY dinner (maybe a jumpstart for Evans) and now I have to go clean up! I hope I didn't bore everyone to death with pictures! Happy Hump Day!

Gosh, his nursery turned out SO cute! I love it! I love the rug, the lamb stuff, the mural, all of it!!!! I wasn't bored in the least! :)

I feel like I am going to loose followers all the time since all I talk about is wedding and sewing! haha! I bore myself! Somehow I get new followers all the time though!

I love your cute nursery! I wish I could have done something as cute for either one of my kids! My son was luckier than my daughter. She was a surprise and my son was only 6 months old when we found out we were expecting again, so there was no money for elaborate nursery things. Plus she came 6 weeks early and we had medical bills up the wazoo. So, I'll just be jealous of your cute nursery and think about all the cute things all do for the next and last baby!

You really did a fantastic job on the nursery! It might be the cutest one I've ever seen. Now I can't wait for Evans to come ;)
