Nesting

Can Dixon get here already?? I am officially over the nesting period and I have every right to be since we moved into our house! Oh Yea!! (in my Trump voice) HUUUUUUUGGGGEEE News.. David and I became homeowners in October!! We are overly excited to finally have a place to call home. CD9A5323With a baby due in November, I had certain goals set that I wanted accomplished in our new home, and we have completed them all thankfully. So here is a tiny look into our very first home!
bandwhite39weeks My first priority was the baby nursery. I knew if for any reason Dixon came early that we would have to have his room ready. CD9A7064CD9A6766CD9A7020 Next on my list was our bedroom. I haven’t started to truly decorate but I knew how I wanted our bed. Luckily my husband has become quite the carpenter and built our bed, the guest bed, and our dining table. We were able to save so much money with his mad skills, and he will be adding pieces later. The most important ones came first like my dream bed…CD9A6821 CD9A6819 CD9A6817 CD9A6661 CD9A6658 CD9A6657My Mom will be staying with us once our baby boy arrives so having a bed for her was a necessity. It is always best to make sure your visitors or help for that matter are comfy!

These tables can get very pricey. My husband came to the rescue and built it for me which makes it that much more special. We have two gray upholstered, high back chairs at the ends and two wooden benches on each side. All that is missing are guests, but they will arrive very soon.  CD9A7248CD9A7263CD9A7244Week-41 Week-42 Week-44 Week-45 I added a little fall decor to our mantle, and I think we are set until I find other pieces.CD9A7081 The crystal candelabrum’s have been passed down for generations in my family. I adore heirlooms, and I have a constant thought of my grandmother in our home. CD9A7082 CD9A7084 CD9A7095 CD9A7096 CD9A7100One other thing is our beautiful, all white kitchen. What made me most excited was being able to use our wedding gifts for the first time. We have had them boxed away for a year and a half. It was like Christmas morning with each and every box. Also, don’t mind the waterfowl flying around. Marriage is all about compromise, right?!CD9A7275With the baby room completed, a place for me and David and my Mom to sleep, and a place to eat, all that’s left to do is put up some Chirstmas decor in December. Hopefully, the next thing to happen will be Baby Dixon arriving! I will be 40 Weeks pregnant in TWO DAYS! My anxiety level is at an all time high!Week-39

To Live Will be an Awfully Big Adventure -Peter Pan

On June 27th David and I learned there was a sweet, little boy growing inside of me. Ever since June 28th, I have been working extremely hard to create the perfect nest for him. Picking out a theme was the hardest. You don’t know what his personality is going to be like. What we did know is what we want for our little boy and that is an adventure in all things. We (mostly David) are clearly about pirate adventures if you haven’t noticed, but I wanted something a little more mature for a nursery. So I thought how can I relate a pirate theme, but truly use what it’s all about: Adventure, Exploring, and Seeing what the world has to offer. So I designed an Adventure Themed Nursery with help from my dear husband and sweet family. I went a little farther and made it more than adventures on the high seas, but adventures in the mountains or near the water. We have big dreams for our little one and hopefully through this room he will be inspired and know he is loved, supported and to live will be an awfully big adventure.
