nesting. . .

We have been looking for the perfect bedding to compliment Lucia's aqua crib and silk off white bedding. Everything I found was so expensive and just not right. Of course Grammy Sparkle to the rescue! She make anything and decided that would be her gift to the new baby! There is a new fabric store here in town that has every designer fabric you can imagine. . the fabric is so FUN! I love the retro bold prints. We spent 2 hours picking out the perfect combination. I am so proud of our little town for having such a HIP fabric store . . we are not known for hip shopping! Here is the link to the shop I just love their stuff. .. . http://thetopstitch.com/
The picture above this text is going to be the quilt. The one below is the dust ruffle and then the following picture is all the prints with the sheet and bumper fabric included. I can't wait to see it all put together.


Major nesting project that I have been losing sleep over. My pantry was so YUCK! I wanted it organized and sort of cute! I think I veiw my entire life especially home like my First Grade classroom. I want everything to have a basket/bin with a label! I wish my kids sat in a basket labeled. . . okay so wierd, maybe I shouldn't admit this. If Carla and Ang are reading this they are so making fun of me. I had been trying to figure out how to re-organize the pantry on a small small budget! Well here it is.. . .new contact paper. . cheap bins, tags and the final touch polk-a-dot and ric rac ribbon to hold the tags. I do not scrap book or do foo foo. . . I just like simple, organized and clean and LOVE LABELS! TA-DA . . . !
More new bins and labeling! Above the closet was driving me nuts! Much better! More pantry. . .

Oh yes, I made all the boys in the house clean behind the refrigerator . . I think there was major diseases growing back there. . it was so gross!

There has been a lot of nesting around here lately or maybe it could be called frantic spring cleaning. I am sure I will never get another thing done after our family expands to 4 kids and a newborn in the house. I have completely caught up on the memory books and prayer journals for Keagan, Kinkade and Lucia and started a prayer journal for the new baby with ultrasounds and stories from the pregnancy. The carpets and furniture have been professionally cleaned (had to practically take out a second mortgage for this:) I just wanted to document my insanity in this post to remember this time. Oh yeah. . in case you are worried Easter outfits are all taken care of! Well. . . except for me I will be the big mom in the black sweats with the handsome husband in his Spring BR button down, the cute twin boys in their new polo's that Grammy bought them, and of course Lucia in the cutest Easter dress ever that I purchased 9 months ago for Easter from the Gap on big time sale! Next year I might attempt cute this year "No Way" as Lucia says.

Darc--I LOVE the pantry! You've rubbed off on me over the years--I've even purchased a labelmaker (shh...don't tell anyone). And I really LOVE the bedding. Can't wait to see it all together with Lucia's. We're praying for you these next couple of weeks! Ang

I love the Top Stitch...that is where I get all my fabric that I make Maddie's blankies and burp rags with. Carrie who owns the store is awesome, she has a stitch cafe which is so much fun too :) Can't wait to see all the bedding put together!

At the end of a looong day I can always rely on getting a good laugh from you! Love the bedding, the pantry and the cleaning frenzy. And the black sweats at Easter!! A labelmaker, huh?!! I will go to bed tonight with a mental image of the pantry and the almost 4 kids and Aaron in baskets on the shelf. Properly labeled!
Rest up!!!

Adorable! I firmly believe that all things deserve to be in cute baskets with labels and ribbons! Oh and I LOVE that the boys cleaned behind the fridge---you are training them to be awesome husbands some day :)

I love the bins and labels... LOVE THEM. You know me, I am totally the same way. :) Are you seriously wearing black sweats on Easter?! The Whitworth Volleyball ones?!?? Oh well, you always look cute, even in sweats!! And by the way, I would love to come help clean once the new baby gets here, so sign me up! :)

What a crack-up!! We thought this was hilarious. Of course it brought back memories of emptying every drawer in our house when I could barely stand up so that all would be ready. Keagan sounded so grown up on the phone the other day. He wanted to know if the girls could come with us in April.

By the way, you look lovely.
Mom and Dad

cute cute cute! This makes me very excited to get a house and do the same! For some reason our little apartment just doesn't inspire me the same way...maybe it's because I know we won't be here long. Question though...why do you have 3 things of cooking spray??? haha! Love ya
