Christmas Pictures

I'm still struggling to get out a Christmas card this year, but thought I'd take some pictures of the kiddos just in case I find the motivation.  With Sean's crazy work schedule this month, family pictures weren't in the cards – and honestly, not sure I could handle the stress of trying to look presentable in a family photo right now anyway.  I took these pictures wearing my finest grey joggers, with a big fluffy sweater, and my hair in a crazy bun.  Sure made the whole process less stressful and boy do I sure love this Christmas crew :)

Isla's Boho Nursery

I feel this strange need to caveat this post with a list of excuses why this room isn't exactly the room I had designed in my head – which is silly, I know.  There are lots of hand-me-downs and hand made items, the walls were already painted with colors I didn't pick (and honestly it's hard to find the motivation to paint in a rental), and I didn't want to break the budget getting too many new things right now.  However, I've had friends and family ask to see Isla's nursery, which I get!  I love a good room reveal as much as the next gal.  It has been so surreal buying girly things and making a girly room for my BABY GIRL!  It's a work in progress, but this is what I have going so far :)

The wall above the bed was painted with black chalkboard paint so I drew some floral designs to try it out, but, I will probably be switching that up soon.

Ballerina handmade by my friend, Nicci.  She's amazing!
My friend, Kristi, made this floral "I" for my baby shower. Love, love, love :)

This room doubles as a guest room so it makes it a little tight with a bed and crib, but she's not exactly playing in there yet.
