A basically finished nursery for Eloise.

So excited for her nursery to finally be done, other than a few little things to add (I've kind of puttered out on hanging things for a bit).  And so excited to share it!  Now, we just need the baby!  C'mon, little El.

  1. Colleen, so sweet :) I absoluteley love it! It's actually exactly how I pictured it would be ... whimsical, stylish, and fun. She's going to love her new little pad!

  2. Totally stunning! What a beautiful room to grow up in.

  3. love this! where is the actual crib from?

  4. Thanks, Heather and Al!

    Toria - I totally forgot to put that on there! :) It's the Da Vinci Jenny Lind 3-in-1 stationary convertible crib in white (my mom ordered it from, but they have it other places!).

  5. Found your pictures looking for that cute flower accent table. What a cute nursery! Blessings on your delivery and baby girl on the way!! :)

  6. I linked to your post in my blog, have a great day!

  7. Love it. But PLEASE take down the wall hanging over the crib. Very dangerous to have anything hanging on the wall over a crib. Eventually your babe will be standing and can reach it. And if not she may bang on the walls and it can fall. My youngest daugther loves to play in her crib a bit when she wakes up, and often really rattles around, banging her water bottle on the wall, laughing etc. Sometimes I laugh at how rough she gets a,d that pic would totally fall on her.

  8. Awesome Nursery room, its very stylish. using a chandelier Nursery Lamps giving baby something to look at while she's lying awake in her crib. A beautiful addition to any baby room, nursery chandeliers add a touch of whimsy no matter what your decorating style.

You guys.  These are by far these worst videos ever made.  Yet I made them.  That's your first piece of information.  Second - why?  Why on earth would you post these silly, low-quality videos? I've had some people ask about my hair recently, specifically the waves/curls I've been doing. And, we've all talked about getting together, but sometimes it just doesn't work out.  So, here you go.  I can't wait to get my first thumbs down on YouTube.  Also, I am completely aware that there are much more important things going on in the world right now. 🙂
The main product that makes the difference for me is my curling iron, The Beachwaver (I use the S1 most of the time, S .75 less often).  I swear I'm not trying to sell it. I just really, really like it.   I realize it is a lot of money for a curling iron, so it's an investment (the 20 % off coupons from Ulta apply to this product when they're available and you can apply for their points system - I got min…

Current clothing faves.

Regular blogging, she said, right?  Whoops.  Seriously...I'm trying.  I swear I'll get more consistent.  Anyways...  
Madewell is killing me right now.  The idea of spending more on maternity clothes that won't fit in three months is too much to stand, but I am still running out of stuff to wear, so I decided to try some things on the in the store recently (Holla - store close to home!) and holy cow, they are winning this season.  Madewell is one of those brands that I find doesn't look as cute on the website or hangers as it does in person.  Here were my favorites...Some outer layers to wear over maternity tanks and tees and then a few other tops that can expand. 

This long cardigan.  I typically don't wear long cardigans because of my height, but this one seems to work - I think it must be the weight.  

Look at this you guys.  You are wearing a sweatshirt.  But you look like you are wearing a structured jacket.  BOOM. 

This shirt is incredible. Works with a belly, bu…

The move.

We've had some questions over the past few weeks as to how the adjustment is going for us.   And I kept meaning to write about it earlier, so here we go.  With a smattering of very high quality photos (kidding). 
Overall, we are doing well.  This is not to say we don't miss people, that everything is absolutely wonderful all the time, etc.   Change is really hard, but it is so good, and so stretching for our lives and our faith.  So, good is my overall answer.

Eloise at the Circle. 
For those of you who don't know the whole story of our move, I'll give you the shortest version possible.  Last fall, Zach was offered a hospital medicine job in Southern Illinois (he had been working at his old engineering job the first few months after graduation from PA school).  This decision was made after much deliberation and prayer and applications were sent out just about everywhere (seriously - we were open to anywhere).  The job in Southern Illinois made the most sense and we de…
