We were supposed to go to a family reunion thing this weekend. Stuff happened, and it ended up being moved further away, a 2 hour drive, so (needless to say) WE did not go. I’m not sitting in a car for 2 hours willingly any time soon. Byron’s sister and her husband came up, and we were able to spend a little time with them. She’s pregnant too! I’m right at 8 months, and she’s coming up on 6!
My dress is the Morocco Cafe Wrap Dress from Fresh Produce, which I received for free to review back in um………March or something? So, big thanks to them for not like..sending a hit team out on me, lol! Anyway, this dress was super-comfy and light, which was really important to me, since it’s FREAKING HOT in Arkansas in the summer. This was actually my first time wearing it, since it looked crazy on me for a while, due to my pregnancy. I happen to think it’s super-cute now! I got complimented several times while out and about, so that’s always good, right? Fresh Produce has a lot of other cute casual wear, so if you’re the market, check them out!
So, I posted last week about Izzy moving to her big girl bed. She loves it! We haven’t had any sleep regression issues, or anything like that. It’s actually easier on mommy and daddy too, because we don’t have to sit on the floor, or do the precarious “half-sit” on her toddler bed to read her a bed time story. It’s great being able to just sit down on her bed with her, without being worried about breaking it, lmbo! It will also come in handy if we have any more nights where she just WON’T sleep, and someone needs to be in the room with her. It’s comfy enough that I’ll just go sleep in her bed with her if she won’t chill.
I think this style just isn’t for me. I probably should have used a different product or something, but oh well. This shit is fuzzy, frizzy, and f- ok, maybe I won’t drop the f-bomb, but NAWL. Not for me. Maybe once my hair is longer. I’m considering a cute curly weave though. Very soon.
The crib is in the nursery now! It was in pieces, and Byron was going to put it back together for me this weekend, but I got into a nesting frenzy on Friday while he was still at work, and did it myself. Which would have been pretty easy, if I didn’t have to put crazy metal immobilizers on the drop-side so it would be nice and safe for baby Zoe. We bought Izzy’s crib before the drop-side ban, and opted to just get the kit to make it safe instead of replacing it. I actually hardly ever used the drop-side feature anyway, since I’m tall.
Anyway, I briefly considered sanding the crib down and painting it white, because I felt like the dark wood wouldn’t look good against the chevron pattern. I also thought that white would be better with the bright bedding colors I had chosen, and contribute more to the quirky-modern theme I called myself going for. But once it was in the room…
I love it as is, and I think the crib bedding will look beautiful with it! These pictures are my attempt at a panorama shot, but the “auto-panorama” feature on the camera didn’t like the light coming in through the window very much. Ah well. I’ll get some good ones once everything is finished, including the removal of the computer desk.
I get my fabric tomorrow “before the end of the day” *rolls eyes at UPS for that vague crap* and I can’t wait to share! I’m really excited to get my hands on it, since it’s the last thing in the nursery that I feel just HAS to be done before Zoe’s arrival in 55 days or less! Can you believe that? It sounds so much shorter than 8 weeks!
