The fun begins

Though I am not officially supposed to be getting our nursery ready until after our home renovations are complete (we're closing in the garage for added playroom/den/guest bedroom), I cannot help myself. The contents of the garage will soon be taking over the nursery so painting, decorating, etc is not an option for at least another month or longer.

However, my friend Rebecca (aka Little Miss Home Decorator Princess of the World) is just as excited as I am and is really helping me think through it now so I don't get overwhelmed at the last minute.

Kara gave us this awesome canvas as our Christmas present (that I may or may not have pointed out about eleventy seven times in conversations with her....hehe). It was made by our good friend Laura Kirkland who is a creative masterpiece! Check out her goods here, but be ye prepared to fall in love with many a product.
So this canvas is the inspiration to the twins' nursery and tonight I found the perfect bedding to go along. Overstock.com was having $1 shipping and I couldn't resist. Felt kind of funny purchasing TWO crib sets.

The colors look pastel on the screen but are actually a lime green and bright blue so they will look great together. And we'll girlify one of the beds - maybe pink fish pillows? - so Baby Girl won't feel surrounded by all those boy fishies.
Wall colors, wall decor, rugs, etc will be handled by Consultant Rebecca as she has the mad skillz that Preggers here ain't got.

UTTER PERFECTION! You scored big time on those crib sets. They will look awesome in the nursery and with the print. Can't wait to see what you and Rebecca come up with!

Love the bedding and nursery theme. Rebecca shared the ideas at the girls night- which you were very missed at- and I can't wait to see it all come together!

Whoo Hoo!! A shout out. But an even bigger shout out to the nursery idea. That is too cool. And I do not think that the fish are too boyish. VERY CUTE!! I'm glad that you love living at the beach!
