The Nursery is DONE!

And good timing, because I feel like I am too!  It seems like we started the nusery really early in the pregnancy, but of course we wait until the last minute to finish it up.  But we are very happy with it, and we hope she loves being in there as much as we do! 

37 weeks

Baby bedding & book shelves

From the moment we found out we were pregnant, we wanted to do an ocean theme for the nursery.  When we found out she was a girl, it got to be much more difficult...they don't make cute girly ocean bedding.  But that wasn't stopping us!  We found a cute kids quilt at target in turquoise and pink with some bright accents and went from there.  We decided to paint a wave on the wall in a really bright turquoise and a very light shade of the same color (the pics don't do it was hard to get the lighting just right).  And then from there, lots of splashes of pink and fish decor and the room came together! 

Lots of thanks goes out to several people who were key in pulling it all together: the bedding was made by our friend Laura, who did an incredibly amazing job making a bumper and bed skirt out of a twin quilt! 
Word wall & MIA letters above changing table
The shelves were made by my dad, (Papa), to match the furniture perfectly!  The word wall inspiration came from Deb, my mom's friend and my second mom growing up who had the quote framed at my Garden City shower.  The "MIA" letters were meant to be a joke from my college friends, but Christy went over and above and made them too cute to throw in the closet!  And then some of the decorations include gifts from Brady & Jenna (Uncle BB & Aunt Ninna) with the scuba piggy bank and maternity pics, the picture frames and lots of books from my mom (Nana) and others, and the adorable monogrammed blanket on the back of the chair from my friend Amy.  It all came together so perfectly, and we love the way it turned out!  Now we just hope she comes soon so she can enjoy it too! :)

    The nursery is too cute! So glad that the blanket is a special addition. Good luck with the next weeks and enjoy "just the 2 of you" before Miss Mia makes 3! Life as you know it will NEVER be the other words go out to eat & enjoy one last movie (really). Take care & if you need anything we are just a phone call away. Can't wait to see Miss Mia.
