Our Pretty and Pink Nursery

Even before I was pregnant with Eli I knew the babies room would be yellow and grey.We didn't find out what we were having with Eli so it worked great as a gender neutral room.

It was my favourite room and I still loved it to this day but once we found out we were having a girl I had to go full on can you not!

We didn't need anything for furniture as Eli is out of the crib and into a big boy bed. So it was all in the details. I jumped right into to Etsy and found a pink grey and white polka dot blanket on the Posh Pea Boutique, and started from there. 

I bought all the bedding and pillows on Etsy isn't Etsy just the greatest they have everything! Although dangerous I love the site. 

After I got over the shock of being pregnant in the first place I purchased this black and white blanket I really love it I am a font person and this was just me. I think it goes perfectly with her room.  

So here is the room complete with polka dots, and pom poms 

Everytime Eli walks into the room he says "oh wow" 
We are pretty much ready for baby check back next week and see what we have packed for the hospital and a special treat for Eli when his sister arrives

Gender Reveal

We were on the fence about finding out the gender but late in August we decided we would. We decided on a balloon box gender reveal and had our photographer do something up and capture it for us. 

I had a feeling it would be a boy so was shocked and obviously super happy when the pink balloons came out. It is great now to have one of each. Eli doesn't quite understand I don't think that there is a baby coming home with us but when we ask him about the baby he always kisses my belly and just recently has started pointing to the carseat at the door saying where baby? 

Here is some pictures from the gender reveal

I am Back!

I am back again!
I applogise for going months without blogging. The summer went by super fast and I can't believe in 5 short weeks our baby will be here.

We spent our summer at the park, the outdoor pools, the racetrack, and took 3 race holidays. 

Eli loves it outside and loves it at the racetrack. He is such a good traveller and we are thankful for that.

We travelled through North Dakota racing and then to Iowa for more racing we managed to get in some fun family time at some waterparks and ate at my favourite restruants. Cravings were big this summer and we had to take care of those. 

The best part of summer is fresh vegetables I loved getting fresh veg from Aaron's grandma's farm. I ate cucumbers like they were going out of style. 

Aaron and I took a trip alone without Eli we were gone 6 days to Boone for Supernationals it was a great trip. Hot weather, good racing and a we came home with a Top 4 finish in the big show. So proud of Aaron. Our team ate a total of 16 famous Boone Supernational steak sandwiches. I am not sure if that is embarrassing or an accomplishment all I know is they were great! Eli had a blast at home but when we arrived home he realized hey my parents left me and now I am going to make them pay for it he gave us a few days of terror but we managed. 

We took on a lot of projects this summer and accomplished most of them!
Our backyard got finished

Eli moved to a big boy room and a big boy bed The Nursery was changed from a neutral yellow and grey to a pretty and pink room once we found out we were having a baby girl. A post about those rooms to come soon 

We did lots of crafting took home 7 feature wins and most importunely just enjoyed the summer with Eli he is at such a fun age and we love it.

I am feeling well-and looking forward but somewhat nervous to bring a new baby home we are all ready and I am nesting up a storm and being super weird at the same time. I am obsessed with sausage, garlic crackers, mr.clean and organizing.

Check back soon I got lots of fun stuff to share!
