Ok these have got to be the cutest little prints ever. I have a small obsession with birds. Not real ones but images/knick knacks that involve birds. I have no idea why. Anyway, while searching etsy for some cute wall art for the nursery, I found these! There are just so many options. I love them. There will be at least a few of these in our little ones nursery.

Love, LU

This week was a crazy one over here at the Phelps residence. We had basically my whole family in town, and it was non stop commotion. Though it was hectic and at times somewhat stressful, I am really sad that everyone is gone. Luckily everyone (including my little brother who will be back from his mission) is coming back for thanksgiving. Hopefully our little girl will be on time, so that everyone can meet her. I'm sure it will be here before I know it. So until next time my fam!


So in all my spare time these days, I have chosen to be a little crafty. Crafts were the last thing on my mind for the months I spend in bed and leaning over the toilet. It felt so good to finally be a little creative.

The first craft was inspired by my oh so creative and talented friend ashley. She is constantly coming up with the cutest DIY crafts. So after many visits to her well decorated apartment, admiring her bedazzled books, I though I would give it a go myself. So here are mine! I love them. Suuuupper easy. All it took was a stop at the local DI for some colorful hardback books, a handful of buttons, and some glue.

I have had the intention of doing this second craft for a while. A chalkboard! I was waiting to find the perfect frame but gave in and just bought an ikea frame. I painted it a pretty blue and I couldn't be happier with it.

Lastly is a photo project. I absolutely love the series of pictures we took in our wedding photo booth and I was dying to find a way to incorporate it into our new place. So I took a trip down to kinkos and had the images blown up and then I framed them to hang in our room. I love them!

Sooo here are the the options for baby bedding. I thought I was set on the coral colored one so I bought it, and in the process of waiting for it to arrive I found a couple other options. So here they are. I want your input! Though white is very boring, I like the simplicity of it. It would just make designing around it so much easier. And to make it less boring I could paint the crib a fun teal or coral. Oh the possibilities. Let me know what you think because i am lost. Thanks!
