One Week One Year: Nursery Inspiration and Preggers Book

Wow where has this week gone?! Being at total stay at home mom during my week in-between jobs has been WONDERFUL but busy! Today I bring you all things baby girl nursery!

It was SO. BEYOND. DIFFICULT. to narrow down a nursery theme. Color pallet? Done. I knew I wanted soft pink and gold. I love pink and gold together. Love. If my husband would let me decorate the entirefreakinghouse in pink and gold, I would.

But a THEME. I hate that word. Theme is so…. I don’t know. I picture “Under the Water Prom” when someone throws out the word theme. But alas, I needed a theme.

I made two boards on Pinterest: Enchanted Forest and Vintage Mermaid. Loved them both, still do. But we decided to go with something we felt would be a little more timeless and cozy. We wanted to give our unborn child a forest. Nothing says cozy up with a good book like a forest. (A pink and gold forest, duh.)

But if someone out there would PLEASE do Vintage Mermaid and send me pictures that would be much appreciated.

I made the prints myself from inspiration around the internet. And added a lot of very not-baby-friendly items to the bookcase which I am now totally reworking.

My pregnancy journal is one of my favorite pieces in the entire house. The second I found out I was pregnant I started a private blog so I could write down everything I was feeling and thinking from anywhere. My thought going in to it was wanted to have something for me to look back on as she grows up (and turns into a super bratty fun teenager) and something to give her down the road when she is thinking of starting a family of her own. I kept the layout modern and clean to keep it as timeless as possible. I put all my weekly bump pictures, weekly stats, stories and letters. I still tear up over it. It is never to late to document this time in you life, get to it!

For those wondering, I use Blurb.com to print all my books. Although it has less frills then others, I find the quality and customization amazing. Second favorite (will all the frills) is MyPublisher.com Always on the look out for a new printing service, any favorites out there?
