Heres the finished product of Britt's nursery! I thought I'd post pics since all of her furniture is used/Craiglist, excluding the chair, which we got from Ikea. Even the painting, paper lanterns, fan - its all either from something I already had in the house, or from a garage sale of some sort.

I LOVE how it has turned out. Simple, bright and clean looking. We haven't spent a ton of time in there since she is sleeping in a bassinet in our room right now, but I'm excited for when she officially moves in.
The mirror and dresser came from the same antique shop. I painted them both and added new hardware to the dresser if you didn't remember. I LOVE the way the mirror turned out. I love the hugeness of it and the teal color.
Her crib was off of Craigslist too if you remember from my earlier post, oh a couple months ago.:) And that is the painting I found at the same antique shop that I got the dresser and mirror.
One of my friends gave Britt these initial blocks as part of her gift and they matched her room exactly! I love them!
Hope you like it!:)

Britt Louise is here!!! She arrived Monday, November 29th at 10:58am, weighting 7 lbs, 2 ounces and was 19 inches long. She was delivered via c-section since she was a complete frank breech and just refused to turn around for us.:) But its okay... she is here is and absolutely perfect. Eric and I are so in love. I'm recovering well. We were discharged 48 hours after delivery and got to go home and settle in. She has been absolutely incredible at getting on a schedule all by herself. She is a champ at breast feeding already and is SO patient in learning the whole process. Being a mother, all 5 days that I've experienced, has been one of the best experiences of my life. I absolutely LOVE it.

I am so sorry I've been so delinquent in posting these past two months... well lets be honest, since getting pregnant. It was a difficult ride for me. Between being incredibly sick for the first 5 months, all the traveling we did over the summer and into the fall, and then I slipped a rib and have battled excruciating pain for the past 1 1/2 months, spending a TON of time and energy on trying to get her to turn since we found out she was breech at 32 weeks, I really lost motivation to blog. Somedays it was hard to just to do life. I have thought of you often and have felt guilty at times for being more diligent, but knew I needed to do what I needed to stay on top of my health and sanity. So thank you for your patience... its been much needed and much appreciated.

Love you all... thanks for sticking with me.:)
