The Nursery!

My sister came to visit this weekend and she painted a tree on my wall for me! The tree is done in paint and then we took different scrapbooking papers and made the leaves. She cut them out with a template and I ran them through a little adhesive machine. As an afterthought we decided to add an owl to the tree and I begged for 3 more to put over the closet. I have an owl theme going on, I have a really cute nightlight and bookend with an owl on them. So she made 3 more and they went above the closet. It all turned out sooooo freaking cute!

In addition to the hard work on the tree, I also got all the clothes put ogranized and put away. Set up the baskets under the changing table and just generally got the nurery into working order. I cannot tell you what a relief all of this is to me. Not having the nursery setup was really stressing me out! Tina and I also went to Pittsburgh on Sunday. We went to Ikea and had dinner at Bahama Breeze ( we had the best tuna steak and key lime pie!), then we went to see Fleetwood Mac at the Mellon Center downtown. It was a FABULOUS concert, we had a really good time. If you ever get a chance to see them, it is worth the high ticket price. I was up until 1:30 AM on Sunday, which believe me is the latest I have been up since before I was pregnant. It was tough, but I managed okay. I'm sure I was probably the only 8 month pregnant woman at the show :) Well the only one with a 2.5 hour commute at least.
I did get in a few good workouts last week, but nothing this weekend. Other than house cleaning/organizing stuff, which believe me feels like a workout these days. We are supposed to get some more warm days later this week, so I look forward to getting out for some long walks. But I really need to get to the gym as I am paying for it and I haven't been in 2 weeks!

I love it! What a creative approach. This is so much better than going out and buying a matching set from Target or something. Good job!
