Shameless Self-Promotion

Check out my guest blog over on The Domestic Wannabe to read all about my day-to-day life as a new mom, of course, new pictures of Lizzy are included!

Do you all remember the long design process where I fretted over every little thing in Lizzy's nursery? You all were such great help and offered excellent advice. Between my ideas, your advice, Justin's labor, and a lot of help from friends and family, we ended up with a non-traditional nursery that we LOVE.

I love that the walls aren't pink. I love that Lizzy has an awesome tree mural painted by her amazing Aunt Renee that will hopefully grow with her. I love that Lizzy's bedding was made by Lizzy's Grandma Joyce. I love that her dresser was Justin's growing up (which we refinished). I love that in a moment of craftiness, I made some DIY wall art.

In all honesty, Lizzy's nursery was the first time that I was able to take an idea (or a "DESIGN CONCEPT" as I'm sure they'd say on design star) and actually implement it in real life. And we did it on budget {read all about the total cost here} And I am so proud of the nursery. I hope that you all like it too.

If you do, I hope that you'll vote for Lizzy's Nursery in The Bump's Real Nursery Contest. The grand prize is a family vacation to one of the Beaches resorts in Jamaica. I cannot even begin to explain how incredible that vacation would be.



  1. Ohhh hope you win! I voted! I personally loved everything you did with the nursery, the colors that you picked are very similar to the ones that I hope to use if we are blessed with a little girl someday!

  2. Oh, it's so gorgeous. I love that the walls aren't pink too :) Good luck!

  3. I love your nursery, it gets my vote every time! :) I just read your post about Mommy and Me swimming. Did your local pool conduct this class? Do you do it during the week or on weekends? It looks like a great class and something I would love to do with Jillian. Let me know whenever you get a chance, thanks!
