kicking it into gear

With my due date set for January, I am trying to get as much done as possible on my decorating to do list before the barrage of holidays. I have been wanting to get window treatments up in my daughter's room since we moved in last November, and as usual, designers don't ever get to their own projects! But, I finally got moving and ordered fabric for new window valances and a throw pillow in her room.

Here's a link to my previous post about her room... changin-it-up

It is in a navy and hot pink color scheme, which I absolutely love! But, it is definitely lacking!

I preach to my clients all the time how window treatments can really change it a room and completely finish it off. So, I am taking my own advice! She has three windows in her room and I decided to do a faux roman shade in a fun navy and white geometric with a wide fabric border down the sides and bottom. I also had a pink greek key trim I was dying to use so I am going to have a little bolster pillow made for her bed with the trim along the ends.

 I am so excited to see this room come together!!! I will definitely post pics once it's all complete!

missing in action

July?! Has that really been the last time I blogged? Yikes!

I feel so out of the loop in the blogosphere and I look forward to catching up! I have a perfectly good excuse for missing in action recently! We are expanding our family, not by two feet, but by four! That's right, we are expecting twins!! You would think by the middle of my 2nd trimester it would have sank in by now, but I still feel shock as I type!

Lol, it definitely didn't feel like I had any superpowers the first trimester when I could barely move and spent most of my time in the bathroom! The second trimester is proving to be better with less sickness but the bigger I get, the more it takes to get me moving. 

I know there are a plenty of moms out there with experience with twins, so please any advice is much appreciated!!!
