. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Random Wednesday

Random Wednesday

dress: forever 21   necklace: gift    cardigan: old navy   boots: dsw 

Thank you SO much for all your excitement, comments and congratulations when we announced we're having a girl! We really couldn't be more excited!


Despite my closed eyes I'm still sharing this picture. In honor of Dr. Suess' birthday my team dressed up as the "things" and even baby Vale got to participate.  I lost my shirt from last year, so I wore this instead.  
I finished my first baby room project. After seeing this adorable print on pinterest I wanted to copy.  I used a canvas that I already had, drew the elephant and used the top of a spray can to make the dots.  I had to use the paintbrush to go over many missed spaces and to even out the circles.




These are the colors we're planning on using for the room. I can't wait to hang it and add two others to each side.  Now to decide what to put on them! 

Hope you're having a good week!

First, you look great! I love the dress and necklace. Second, I love that you're writing your little girls letters. I did something similar and I'm so glad I did. Have fun shopping for her, I was a little (a lot) out of control in the nesting department. :)
