Our Nursery Reveal....Again


Feel like you're experiencing deja vu? That's because you kind of are.  
If you're not a regular here on the DN let's play catch up....we've moved.
Yep, that's right, about twelve months after pouring my hormonal sweat, tears, and some blood into making over our baby boy's nursery we decided to relocate to a new nest. 
I decided to reincarninate Little B's nursery at the new house, after all, if ain't broken don't fix it. Okay, maybe it also had to do with the fact that I'm now a sleep-deprived mama whose brain is about as useful as a steering wheel on a mule these days. I just didn't have the energy to create and decorate an all new nursery! Either way, I'm here to share our nursery reveal....again.

But first, let me refresh your memory on what this room looked like when we moved in.
Yes, it's the room that was swallowed by the one eyed, one horned, flyin' purple people eater.
You can see more about this purple monster here.


And here it is today........

For the most part, this room layout is very similar to the nursery at the old house.
The windows and closet are probably the only difference. 
Old house had one window, and two closets; new casa has two windows and one closet.

You can view my thoughts, inspiration, and pictures of the original nursery here.
With that being said, I'm going to try my best to stop babbling and just let you tour the new room yourself!

Phew! Do I need to resuscitate anyone? You deserve a lollipop for surviving that photo dump!
Or better yet, why don't I have a drink in your honor? Cheers!

We're moving on to the playroom next, so stay tuned for more fun home adventures!
You can check out the outdoorsy themed mood board I have planned for it here.

Valentine's Day Wreath: The Cinderella Story


Today I'm treating your eyeballs to my Valentine's Day wreath.
In a far away, long away kingdom (aka my basement), 
I found Cinderella (aka an old Christmas wreath gone bad)....
     
DIY Valentines Day Wreath. Easy, inexpensive, and takes just 10 minutes!

She had a wicked stepmother who treated her badly. 
I mean just look at how unkempt she was!


One day there was a ball at the King's palace but Cinderella was very sad because she didn't have a gown to wear. Suddenly, a fairy godmother appeared (that's me in case you haven't been following along, which is odd because I was also the wicked stepmother) and waved her magical wand (aka my new cordless glue gun) and turned her old clothes into a beautiful new gown! It was really simple, all she did was wrap ribbon around the dress and finished the waist off with a  pretty, burlap lace-trimmed bow.




Everyone was struck by Cinderella's beauty when she entered the palace for the royal ball.
And by "everyone" I mean my 18 month old offspring who believes he's a dog and insists on eating his dinner by licking it off the floor. He is my little prince though and he fell in love with Cinderella and together they ran off together..........no really, I mean he really just took off down the hallway with her.


THE END.

Valentine's Day Wreath. Easy, inexpensive, and just 10 minutes to make!

Let me know what you think about it in the comments below (about my wreath not my ridiculous storytelling, silly!), find me on Instagram, or come chat with me over on Facebook.
