This week has been UBER crazy with recovering from my sister in laws wedding weekend in vegas (which just so happened to be my first destination wedding gig), unpacking and trying to catch up on laundry (Im not gonna lie there are a few bags that are shoved in the corner of my room untouched), and editing a clients engagement shoot to finish before the deadline! Look… I’ll even sacrifice laundry for my clients lol! Can you say SACRIFICE! –haha a lil Kat Williams moment! I love him before he turned crazayyy! Its probably a good thing I didn’t fully unpack because we’re off to another weekend trip for my ma-n-laws bday! Packing + me = No Bueno!
Anywhoo before I get even more off track I’m going to leave you with a little blog post that I had in my draft box for awhile, since I promised to have a blog post at least once a week and I like to keep my promises…
When we found out that we were having a boy I was super pumped for so many reasons! One of those reasons was because it would be easier to have Jack share a room with a boy than a girl. Im so glad that I didn’t have to split Jacks room in half and have a girl side and a boy side… cuz that’s how it would’ve went down!
Before the nursery was added to his room, he didn’t really have a theme. He had a cool race car bed, with a gas station locker and a bunch of super hero decorations! Oh I cant forget about the toy story posters! It was very random! I called it the Scrapbook room because anything and everything was in it and people just kept adding to the madness!
I didn’t want to make it too baby-ish so I stuck with the sports theme and deeper colors. Let me just say that I love to paint rooms! But the doggone owner doesn’t allow it so I had to work with white walls :( So here it is… our nursery/big boy room :)
I purchased most of the décor at Hobby Lobby and Living Spaces. Dont forget your coupons!!!
I love these little guys! My father-n-law bought us them from the Salvation Army.
So there it is… my boys room! Ill probably never see it this clean again lol! Now I gotta get these little nuggets in the bath… so ta ta for now! :) Have an awesome weekend!!!
