Painting the Nursery

So, since Rebekah was here from AZ, we decided to try and paint the nursery. Let me just say - in the 6 years we have been married, we have never lived anywhere where we could paint. So, let's just say, I didn't really know what I was doing. Rebekah knew a ton more than me, but we still winged it. I of course picked out colors a little too dark - but at least you can get a little glimpse. I still have the blue wall to do the strip on, put on a trim, and do touch ups - then we can move in the furniture. Even though it is a little darker than I envisioned - I think it will grow on me. So the final product will be, pink on half, blue on half (if you look close they have a light stripe) and dark brown on the bottom throughout! We'll see... to be continued!

Oh my gosh, so cute! I have been telling all of my friends here (who have no idea who you are)your big, exciting news and I always assure them, "She's the kind of mom that can totally handle this!" That's how much I think of you as a mommy! Oh, and I love Joseph's hair shaved!
