punch drunk




things are moving and shaking around here...house projects for days, sis is a 25 week along rutabaga, and my nesting has reached full effect!
the wallpaper for a wall in baby girl's room came in today and we've been sitting on the floor all morning long, that paper and i, just staring at each other.

the colors in person are so much darker and intense than the swatch online...and my pregnancy brain, the one that let me eat 12 cupcakes yesterday and forget max's name, has me terrified of making a decision. but one thing's for certain...i see punchy colors with this little lady! corals and reds and anything in between!
 and maybe some yellow...turquoise? definitely a little bit of grey....

who needs a cupcake?

thank you, lauren, much and much for having me!

  2. sometimes your beautiful pictures are all that gets me through a hectic work morning :) also, we are going to be official dayton residents one month from today, and your blog makes me excited for it! also maybe a bit dillusional because i picture all daytonites (daytonians?) to be just as lovely as your little family! i am sure this cannot be so, but i am holding out hope ;) i do hope to meet you in dayton sometime!

  5. I love the combination of coral, turquoise and yellow! Would be so beautiful for a little girls room. My girls room is done is pastel shades of pink, turquoise, yellow, and lots of white.

  8. I love your palette! That paper is amazing and it's going to be bold and special. Oh how I am having baby girl envy (although boys are fantastic- my floral needs just aren't getting met).

  9. Ohh, I love it! Not sure what your plan was but perhaps, if you feel like it's too much, you could just do one wall as an accent?

  11. Terrific colours... don't second guess anything. It is perfect... that little girl of yours in probably sending you a vibe. ;-) Yes would love another cupcake please (terribly jealous that you ate 12 yesterday... a huge perk of expecting... well done you). And congrats on your feature in the magazine... don't know how I missed that post (that is amazing).

  25. Love that H&M dress. I love it so much that when I saw it on your blog, I made my hubby take me across the river to the mall that evening and I bought the very last one my H&M had. :) and if it fits her, she's coming home from the hospital in it. Thanks for the inspiration! ;)

  26. Hello! I used to follow you on LJ a few years (my name was pezywvu) ago and somehow found this blog through another blogger's suggestion. You seemed so familiar and I recognized the Ohio Dewey pizza box, then I realized I used to follow your LJ!

    Congrats on the baby girl! We are expecting a girl just after you on August 4th. Love the color inspiration! We are starting work on our nursery now too. Here is our vision board thus far:
