MLD: Finally Felling Better!

It's been a while since my last post, and a few things have happened-- Hubby and I celebrated our birthdays last week (our birthdays are a day apart!), put together more furniture, still prepping the house, work, work, work! And then I got sick!

Normally, it takes me a day or two to recoup, but this time, it took me a whole week. I was stuck at home, in bed, couldn't really do much and just spent most of my time asleep or resting. I like a good "vacation" as much as the next person, but when I am sick and stuck at home and cannot do anything, it just makes me antsy!

Anyway, today, I finally made it back to work, I still feel blah but hey, baby stuff is not cheap, and 'ya gotta work right?! I decided to punch up a pretty blah outfit with a bright pop of color (via my bag). I love this pink/magenta bag. If you are a fan of the TV show Royal Pains", this is the smaller version of the bag Divya (Hank's Physician Assistant) carried the whole season. I have been coveting it since I saw it when the season started, and 'lo and behold, I stumbled upon it at a very good price (at the Dooney & Bourke Outlet!) and decide it was my birthday gift to myself :)

Hello, Monday!

Croc Embossed. I like the look of exotic leather, but not a big fan of real exotic leather.
Too scaly!!!!

Belt and a necklace are the only other accessories.

The Nursery Reveal Part 1

It's been a busy week, both at work and at home, and I have not had much time to post anything at all! I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. I know I did-- I got to finish putting together some things for the nursery and for the guest room, AND i got to just lay on the couch and play with the dogs and watch movies and TV almost all day yesterday.

And to top it all off, Texas is finally experiencing some nice weather. This whole week's forecast is high 95' and lows in the mid 60's! It's a welcome relief for little old pregnant me (I've been toughing it out in our 100' ++ weather for the past , hmmm, 50 days or so!).

Here's a quick sneak peek at the nursery. It seems like I change things around every couple of days, but for right now, this is how it looks like. I'm still debating if I want to paint the walls....

But definitely, the "theme" is animals + sports. Eric, my husband, who is crazy about cars wanted that to be the theme but I convinced him animals and sports would be cuter for right now. We can do cars (or robots, or dinosaurs, or whatever Baby E will want) later on.

So, what do you guys think?

I put together the bookshelves and table!
