Things are Coming Together

So we have the final home study meeting Monday at 4:00! I am so thankful God hears and answers prayers.

This weekend has been nice and relaxing. I started the reading a new adoption book called Adopted for Life. It's been pretty good so far. I also started the final Twilight book which I automatically got sucked into. I am sure I will have it done in a few days. Greg and I rented the Book of Eli which we will probably watch a little later tonight. I worked hard on the nursery for a few hours today and made some improvements. We went to Michaels today. I decided that I like Hobby Lobby WAY better because it's bigger and they have fabric. I got a few more embroidery hooks to put different fabrics in and hang on the wall. I also bought the first letter of our baby girl's name to hang on the wall. I painted it yellow and it will hang in between all the different embroidery hooks. I love how it looks. I also painted the wood frame around a yellow mirror that I hung on the wall. I am thinking about gluing colorful buttons on it or somehow adding fabric to it to make it look even cuter. I also painted a bunch of letter blocks with bright colors, hung lanterns from the ceiling to see how they'd look and cleaned the room up a little bit. I can't wait to see what the recovered chair will look like. I know I will love it! I am glad I switched from the elephant bedding. I feel like this room is much more personal than a bedding "set." Greg and I have both worked hard on making this room as perfect as we can for our baby girl.

Here are some pictures of the room improvement. Try to picture it without the office furniture and the clutter. It will look even better when that gets moved out.


  1. It looks great! I can't wait to see it in person on Monday! :)
