Baby’s Room

I can finally say that Baby Hicky’s room is ready and the only thing missing is Mr Hicky himself. I’ve never experienced this type of anticipation before…

I now introduce you to my little prince’s nursery. 

  The little toy train we got from Pottery Barn Kids and the elephant collection belonged to his Daddy. Most of those elephants are antiques.  
The dresser, changing table, crib and floating shelves were hand-me-downs from family members. 

 The curtains were hand made by my mom. The painting was a gift painted by a local artist. We didn’t even realize at first how it matched our front yard…we’ve got a big tree on our front lawn and a river across the street 🙂

   
We saw this little puppy when we went into Walgreens today and his dad said he had to have it!

His bedding (and the fun, colorful rug) is all from Pottery Barn Kids. 

As you can see, we opted for a bright, boyish room with some eclectic details. We didn’t want the room to be too “babyish” and have to redo it again a year later. It’s all ready and waiting for you, Baby!

I’m really happy with the results! What do you think?

Really glad that it’s Friday! The hubby is currently busy painting Baby’s room and I’m so so excited to see how it will turn out. I’ve been helping by doing a little online shopping… I still need to find the right curtains and a rug, but I think I’m on the right track.

Speaking of shopping, do you guys use Ebates? In the past year, I’ve gotten over $200 cash back by using their site every time I shop online. I love it. Basically you type in the name of the store, for example Reebok, it will show you how much cash back you get (currently 5%), and you go to their website through the Ebates site, shop, and then get money back. Click here if you’d like to sign up and start using it too. It really is greaaat. 

I haven’t been working out as much this week because the pain increased a little bit :/ But here’s  a good one I did the other day using a Bosu ball- great for keeping your core strength.

Do 4 rounds of:

30 second side plank on floor, switch sides 

30 second plank on Bosu 

40 butt kickers on all fours

30 seated side bends 

I’ll be at CrossFit this weekend- hopefully I’ll be able to get a WOD in on Sunday…

Bump update is below. I’m almost 27 weeks and up 11 pounds.
