Weekend Musings + A Big Announcement

Today’s edition of Weekend Musings is very special to me because I am sharing some pretty big news in my life. I am so thrilled to announce that my husband and I are expecting our first child. We recently found out we will be welcoming a baby girl this May and we couldn’t be more excited!

Its a Girl 2 Weekend Musings + A Big Announcement

Over the past few years, I have watched many friends and bloggers go through the process of decorating their first nursery and I can’t wait to start working on ours! So in addition to the many house projects I will be sharing with you this year, I will also be highlighting the inspiration and design process as we create our new nursery. I will be working on putting together an inspiration board on Pinterest, so if you’ve worked hard on making a chic nursery for your little babe or know of one you think I should see, please let me know!

Here’s what I’ve been reading this week:

- If I could eat goat cheese right now, I would totally whip up this roasted pumpkin and goat cheese frittata with arugula salad from Naturally Ella.

- I love Jenny’s revamp of her vintage Baker sofa with some pretty green velvet and a contrasting dark teal welt.

- This DIY weaved artwork from The Red Thread would be a perfect project to frame for my master bedroom!

- Jamie from Crafty Scrappy Happy is getting me in the mood for Valentines crafting with her sweet heart embellished candle.

    Congratulations, so happy for you! (I don’t know how I missed that post here, probably because I was on vacation until 7th January and hadn’t time to catch up with all my favorite blogs… ) Anyway, you said just today that it’s funny how similar we are in some aspects and now after reading this post here I must say the same thing… Namely I’m also expecting my first child and guess what – due date is in May :) The only thing different is that we’ll have a baby boy! I haven’t made a big announcement yet in my blog, but I just had to share it with you!

    • Sarah

      Oh my gosh Anu!!! I am so excited for you! A boy, how fun! What a funny coincidence that we are both due with our first in May. I can’t wait to see what you do with your nursery, I know that little boy will be sleeping in style!
