What I Learned Stenciling a Wall

I'm nesting and I love it. It's so much fun to take a blank canvas and create a little slice of heaven for precious BB. One of my favorite things about expecting a baby girl is that I can make the nursery as GIRLY as I want and Mr. B can't protest one bit!!! In fact, he's really getting into it. I'm pretty sure he was (still is?) slightly terrified at the thought of having a little girl but now he's embracing it, florals and all!

The first big task was to paint the nursery. I know what you're thinking, girly equals pink, but not always. I like pink but I also didn't want BB to be engulfed in it. I want her nursery to be bright, and cheery, and romantic. I also want it to have a sophisticated feel. Maybe that's ambitious for a newborn's room but I don't care. Considering I'm going to be spending LONG hours in this space, I don't want it to look like Chuck E. Cheese's house. I'm not into cartoons and "baby" looking stuff and let's face it, until she's asking me for it, she isn't either! Haha, I kid (not really).

After scouring through my cupboards, this is what I came up with:

Halfway There

So, here we are in April and that means that I am halfway done with cooking this lil BB! It's been a fantastic last few months. Apparently, pregnancy and Mrs. B go together like bacon and... well, everything. I feel so good. I keep reading about all these symptoms that I should be having by now and so far, nada. If it weren't for my growing belly, I'd hardly know I was pregnant! I know that there are women out there who truly suffer through there pregnancies and I am SO thankful that is not my case.
