I've not had any desire, since I was about 8 weeks pregnant, to do anything baby. I feel like I've been so sick and focused on Max that I haven't even had the desire to prepare for this little one. Up until this last week, I hadn't even purchased a single baby outfit. This is so not like me, I am the type of person who likes lists, likes crossing things off my lists, and likes being prepared.
So I went online and started looking at crib bedding. First of all, I forgot how dang expensive this stuff is. Second, I had no clue what I was looking for. I have been somewhat obsessed with the color grey and I love the chevron pattern, and I was lucky enough to find something that was exactly those two things. I figured it was pretty gender neutral as well, so I can use it in the future IF and WHEN we decide to have more kids.
The only problem was that the off white furniture that I had would absolutely clash with stark white bedding. My "decorator" and I decided I would have to paint the furniture black. It was a very bold color, but I couldn't be any happier with how it turned out. I have an armoire that I am going to paint an antique blue, and we will accent with that color as well.

The nursery still looks so plain and bare, and I still have so much to do before he gets here. Being on bed rest isn't going to make that easy. At least I feel like I have made some progress, and the big project is complete!
