Recently, I made this for dinner:
Doesn't it look sooo yummy? It was. If I had all of the ingredients, I'd make it tonight. Ah well. Oh and I was so proud of Jeff- he at least ate some of the peppers in his fajita.
That was random, I know- anyway- now for the non-edible good stuff.
So, Jeff and I have done some more work on our nursery since last I've written. It is so fun to see it coming all together! I can't wait for the wee one to join our little family. I am so excited that I get to be a mom. Sometimes, like yesterday, I think about how in just a few more short months (11 weeks) my life will be forever changed. I will be someone's mom. It's kind of an overwhelming and humbling thought. Jeff and I are being entrusted with one of Heavenly Father's children. :)
Okay, so here are some pictures of the nursery. Tell me what you think! And if there are any suggestions, I am open.
Here's our baby's name. Kristen came over one night and helped me make these letters for his name. We modpodged scrapbook paper to the letters- I know the "B" kinda stands out a lot.
Here's the name from the front. :) (In case you can't tell it's polka dots and stripes).
Here is the bedding we ended up going with. I really love the little animals.
We added a tree (it's a wall decal). There are some white sheer curtains that have leaves on it to match that I really want to get, too, for the room. But I will wait until closer to when he's due.
Here is the little bookshelf/ cube organizer thingy. Do you think those cubbies look okay? Should I get another one for the top center- or do you think that's fine?
And the bookshelf and tree together. It was Jeff's idea to put the tree in the corner like that. I love it!
I also covered some small canvases with scrapbook paper as wall decorations. I kind of messed up the bottom one a little- but it doesn't look too bad on the wall. What do you think?
And here's the baby's dresser. We will get a changing bad to go on top of the dresser for a changing table.

I also love this painting so we ordered a print. Once we get it framed, I think we'll hang it above the changing table/dresser maybe? There is also nothing on the wall where the tree is (besides part of the tree) so we could put it there. But Jeff also really likes this painting- which we haven't ordered yet:
(Take My Hand- Greg Olsen)
And, as our beloved prophet suggested last weekend at General Conference, we want to get a picture of the temple to put in there- we'll probably just get a print to put on the bookshelf.
There are a lot of other things I want to update on, but time hasn't allowed for it lately. I've been really busy with school and work these past couple of days. I'm finding it more and more challenging to keep my head above water. However, this shall pass soon! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I just have to make it through mid-May when school is over. In the meantime, I keep plugging along. Spring break is next week and we're headed to Las Vegas! I'm soo excited- and before I know it, May will be here.
