Sprout | The Crib

Alright, a disclaimer... I am participating in NaBloPoMo, but it's not working out the way I had planned.  I'm hoping to pull it together for the rest of the month, but I cannot promise anything...

We purchased our crib from Amazon.  When I purchased it, on 1/19 from Amazon, I did the free shipping and thought in about 2 weeks I'd have our crib.  WRONG.  I got a nice little confirmation message that said, "your product will ship between February 12 and March 11".  WHAT?  After a minor freak-out session, I realized that it might not be in stock and I'd just have wait.  About 3 weeks later, on 2/9, it arrived!!

And now... the first pictures of our nursery...

The before...

The during...




The after...

It doesn't look like much now, but once you see what we've done over the last two days, it will start to look like a whole new room.  We're so thrilled with the way it is coming together, we can hardly stand it!  So with this, you have your first sneak peak at how it's all coming together...

You'll see the notebook papers on the wall.  That's how I kept my insanity with talking about the room.  I drew one for each wall so that as we started to get more and more things on the walls we could piece together what it we had talked about it looking like before we had everything.  It's been funny seeing what people say about them as they see them in the room.  I'll have to document them and show you what I had talked about/drawn from the get-go and how it actually turned out.

So, there you have it, there is our crib!

Sometimes after I read your posts it makes me laugh how similar our personalities are. It's nice to "know" someone out there is just like me! HA! Crib looks GREAT and I really can't wait to see how the nursery turns out, something tells me I am going to LOVE it!

Love it :) How exciting! I remember putting up the crib and the mini-freak out that accompanied it. It makes it so real!

I remember how exciting putting together the crib for the first time was. Fun!

Love the wall color!
Love it! That's the same crib(s) I have for Lila and Vivienne. LOVE it.

Memories, memories - so excited for you. And I cannot WAIT to see how great you make this room. I just know it's going to be filled with the sweetest, most thoughtful little pieces.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
