Nursery Work Weekend

So a couple weeks ago my wonderful parents came to town to help us work on Brylee's room. I had looked for weeks for nursery bedding I liked, and could not find anything. So my mom offered to help me make our own. It turned out wonderful! I'm still working on finishing touches & decorations for the room, but here are some sneak preview pictures of our work weekend and our home-made bedding!
We started Saturday morning around 10 am and worked all day, and then finished up Sunday after church. It was a quick weekend, as my parents had to leave on Sunday evening, but we got a lot done!

Bryan and my dad painted the nursery a bright yellow....not lemon or sunshine yellow, but a deep, pretty yellow. I love the color!

They did a great job!

Horrible picture, I know...but I did help sew all weekend (although my mom was the mastermind behind it all)

My talented mom

Room furniture assembly time

Changing table with quilt (although not a great picture of the full quilt)

Crib with home-made bumber!

Overall room...I love it!

I have done more since these pictures were taken, but I'm waiting until I've finished the room to post a full "Nursery Picture" blog. Until then, hope you like it as much as I do!

Garnet Hill Baby Shower

Last week my wonderful team at work threw me a baby shower! It was our first "official" baby shower for Brylee, and it was really fun! Here are a few pictures from that afternoon.

The cake was the cutest thing I had ever seen! A sweet sleeping baby made out of fondant...and it tasted DELICIOUS! We had so many goodies from Annie's Bakery!

They made me take a picture, which I wasn't fond of, seeing as how by the end of the work day I'm usually sweaty & dirty (especially since it's been so HOT lately!)

Brylee got some of the cutest outfits! I'm learning that I don't need to buy her anything early on, because friends & co-workers have showered her with cute clothes!

Thanks, Rehab Team, for a great shower!
