It's Saturday night.
I'm 38 weeks pregnant.
I could start labor any time between now and 2-4 weeks from now.
I'm a planner.
You can't plan childbirth.
But you can plan out your perfect nursery!
Over the last 5 months, I've been planning and pinning my ideal nursery. I wanted a tree as the focal point that covers two walls, but I also fell in love with a turtle theme so I combined them both. At first, I thought of ordering a decal and putting it on the wall.
But I work in advertising which means I have tons of creative and talented friends. None more talented then my amazing illustrator friend Meg. When she first found out I was pregnant, she said "Let's do a mural!" So we did. Meg did 90% of this artwork and Dave finished the rest. Yes, my husband, the left brained scientific PhD man I married who can pretty much figure out how to put anything together can also DRAW and PAINT. Who knew? He drew the frog and the top turtle.
So without dragging this out any longer, here's a little video I put together quickly that shows you our finished nursery. Hope you enjoy!
