Master Bedroom

The next complete-ish room we have done is our master bedroom. I am so happy with the way it has turned out.

Gender Reveal

This past weekend we went home to celebrate Easter and host our gender reveal. It could not have gone better (with many thanks to my family and hubs).

I posted about the reveal board here and stuck to the theme through and through.
I am not a pink person so found some other inspiration colors to incorporate. We had a beverage table, voting station and light foods including an ice cream bar, cake, cheese straws and mixed fruit.

In our confetti lanterns, we revealed....
A BABY GIRL!!!

We were SHOCKED when we found out two weeks ago. I was dead set it was a boy based on hubby's family history of generations of men. Honestly, it is hard to imagine ruffles and bows but I feel like I will adapt quite quickly. And I already have a feeling this little girl will have her daddy wrapped around her little finger.

Nursery Inspiration

With baby comes nursery decor. Being the planner I am, I am super stressed about it all coming together. The hubs is a lifesaver and has painted the room but we still need to move furniture, redo carpets, order new furniture, etc. Needless to say, I have to-do lists everywhere.

Before we even knew the gender, as in like the day I found out I was expecting, I knew I wanted neutral basics (crib, dresser, bedding, paint color). I plan to bring in pops of color with it being a boy or a girl.... which will be revealed on Saturday :)

Tassel

With my expanding belly everything, I am relying heavily on jewelry to spice up my work wardrobe. I figured my daily go-to black pants can look drastically different on another day with another necklace. Again, this is what I tell myself each morning so just go with it.

Tassels are everywhere and I am kinda digging it. I think it is just a fad but I will follow.

Zara Home

I think I could be nesting for the next 4.5-ish months. I have the urge to get everything completed in the house before bambino. That is only a wish, a very large, large wish.

Speaking of home, I love perusing Zara during my monthly mall lunch distraction. They have some great classic pieces for decent prices. My big wish is that they would open a home store because their website has some great items. I like to see my items in person (but I usually end up ordering online).

Here are a few new faves (and though they are favorites they truly have no place in my current home decor):

Spring Festivities


Spring is here... thank goodness! Spring parties are some of the best and mainly (I think) because of the weather and florals.

I have been loving all the outdoor festivities with canopy string lights. It makes the setting so intimate and warm. Fun table settings with pops of color and pattern are makes their rounds as well.

Cheers to parties!

He or She

We are "revealing" bambino's gender over Easter weekend to our families. I am so not a pink person so  I came up with another scheme with a little Pinterest inspiration.

Think greens, reds, blues and blacks with tissue garlands, flowers and printed papers. While we are having a cake, I am also making paper lanterns filled with confetti for our parents to "reveal" the gender. 

Of course, I am probably going a little overboard with all this but I truly can't wait to find out if little one is a he or she.

Two Years Here

Today marks the day we closed on our house two years ago. My how things have changed.


As much as I fully intended bringing you new pics, my energy just does not have me dragging myself down to get my camera. Here is a recap of the past changes:
