Living Room

Here is our living room before we moved in.

And this is it now!

We are just now getting around to decorating. I've been so sick with this pregnancy that once we were unpacked I had no desire to do anything else. I still get sick sometimes (usually in the evenings) but it isn't so bad. And now that we are 4 months away from having our new baby girl, that "nesting" instinct is kicking in and I'm frantic to get everything ready before she gets here!

This clock is so cool. It's vinyl directly onto the wall and then you just hang the clock hands!

And I love my little flower that I don't have to water :)

Emery loves our new couch. After 5 years of marriage, I think we were definitely ready for it!

PS- We still haven't gotten around to making my cool organization unit for the kitchen. Last weekend it rained. This weekend they say it will be super cold and rainy or snowy! So I guess I will just keep working on other rooms in our house. We still have some painting to do. Plus getting baby girl's nursery ready!

Painting the kitchen

Let's just say I never really liked this color choice for my kitchen!
But, we finally got around to painting it :)

I know tan is so boring, right? But I couldn't decide on another color, and it goes well with the brown in the living room. Plus I will be able to add a pop of color with decorations :)

Our next project?

This sweetness! Can't you just imagine it on that empty wall?
I just love it! And Pottery Barn, I love the idea, but $1,600 -really? I think not.
I think I'll just build it myself with some help from my new favorite blog Knock Off Wood (and maybe my hubby too).
It's a pretty big project though, so we'll see. I've got a huge long list of house projects I want to get done before the baby comes and right now the nursery is pretty close to the top! I guess it's that nesting thing taking over! Better get to work!

We spent Christmas this year in Nevada and also stopped by in Utah for a bit. I was relaxing and enjoying the vacation so much I didn't take very many photos :(
But I did take some of Christmas Eve and Christmas day.
Emery loved helping in the kitchen.

Here we are enjoying our Christmas feast!

Emery putting up his stocking and putting out cookies for Santa on Christmas eve!

Christmas morning!

We had a great Christmas and hope you all did too :)
