Landscaping Complete

The morning I went to the house to check on the progress and found the landscaping complete was such a happy day.  It was about 9:00 a.m. and so very serene and peaceful here.  I am so enjoying praying over this home and thanking God for all of the blessings He has bestowed on our family.  The only things left to finish the exterior are: 1) install shutters; 2) paint the window frames; 3) add house number and mailbox; and 4) install front door.

Here are some other shots:

Looking forward to those backyard barbeques.  There is a rose bush and room for me to plant a small herb garden:)

Nursery Inspiration (Jungle)

How fun to have a wee little one to decorate for!   Here's a glimpse of the beginning of the nursery:

We have a crib very similar to this and matching changing table:

via Babi Italia  We got ours at BabiesRUs.

and this rug with "J":   

I was initially thinking of doing some type of mural and found this adorable image:

I ultimately decided against the mural since we have wainscotting, but I still loved the scene and colors so I decided to do a play on a jungle theme. 

We have some jungle animals:

and this giraffe that I couldn't pass up from Z Gallerie

I'd like to get a bookcase and maybe a small dresser, but his clothes may all just be fine in his closet since it has a built-in shelf.   We are also going to hang his baby portrait in the room (sorry for the blurry pic, the canvas-wrapped photo is still in the plastic for safekeeping until we move in 2 weeks:)

How cute is that?

Style Saturday: Wedges

I love wedge sandals for summer.  For starters, I'm really short (5'1) so I love the height they give.  Plus, they are generally more comforable than heels and dressy enough for me to wear to work.  I've literally worn these everyday to work since I went back from maternity leave (I have them in gold and silver so they go with everything).

And they come in other summery colors:

First Major Purchase for the New Casa

While the house is being built, I've been busy planning how we're going to decorate it.  I've made many a purchase in my head:)  First things first, we're going to need a new couch.  The couches we currently have are old, dirty, smelly, and have been generally demolished by our dogs.

I spent a long time researching couches at various retail stores and online.  We determined that we wanted a sectional so that we could lounge comfortably (we spend a lot of time on the couch) and accomodate several people.  The requirements were:  comfy, simple style, durable and easy-to-clean fabric, in a neutral color.  I like to keep the basics neutral and use color in the accessories so they are easily exchanged when you get bored or want to switch things up. 

After much searching, we finally settled on this:

The Piece 4 Piece Sectional Wedge by Pottery Barn in Light Wheat. 

I like that it has a chaise at the end- I'm claiming that as my end of the couch:)  The only problem is, I'm not 100% sure that it is going to fit.  I've measured the room and the couch dimensions and I think it will work, but I won't know for sure until we see it in the room.  I hope it works!
