Now I Lay me Down to Sleep

Harper's bedding came today!!!


I could hardly wait to come home so I could see it. I've been so nervous about how it would turn out and I was so afraid I would not like it. But I LOVE IT!!!!!! I might or might not have done a little happy dance in the nursery when I finished putting it on. :-) It's even better than I pictured in my head. I had it made here.
(Thanks to "anonymous" who noticed in my original pictures that my sides were upside down. I'm crazy - I was in such a hurry to get it put together - I didn't even realize - but I DID think it looked kind of funny)

And here is a close up. I have a brown crib sheet - but I may also get a light pink one and either one will look good! We have to hang curtains this weekend and then the nursery will be about done. In a month or two - we'll have some wonderful things to hang on the wall and a little changing table/dresser my dad is making and then we'll just need Harper to get here.

I also got a package from Julie - she sent me this sweet little onesie and bib that say "His little lamb". PRECIOUS! And this neat willow tree figurine of an angel holding a baby.

Tomorrow we have two big events at our house - a BIG game between the Hogs and the Rebels of Mississippi and ............Dawson's 6th birthday! This is his favorite spot in our house. He hangs over the arm of our couch and looks into the kitchen. This morning it was cold so Scott wrapped him up in his favorite Cowboys blanket. He looks a little sleepy. We promised him a trip to Sonic for a jr burger and some ice cream for his birthday.
The game is at night and it's going to be COLD so I went to Wal-Mart and got me this $15 red puffy coat. My other coats don't fit so well right now and I wanted something warm to wear with jeans. This was cheaper than a sweatshirt so I'm all set to cheer those hogs on to victory! HOTTY TODDY NOT!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!!!

Hi Kelly, I've read your blog for months now and felt it a welcoming place to ask for prayers for a grieving family this morning. Last night we were at a local pumpkin patch and an 18 month old little girl was run over by the tractor pulling a trailor in a hayride. The beautiful little girl was killed last night. We were there and saw this tragedy and want to ask all of your readers to pray for that family today. Thanks and God Bless.

JKW said...

Oh my goodness anonymous....we are about to leave for a pumpkin patch and that absolutely breaks my heart!!!! Kelly- LOVE the bedding...too cute!

Kelly, I love H's bedding. Can't wait to see J's painting hung on the wall. Dawson looks so cozy all wrapped up in the blanket.

Meagan said...

The bedding is FAB!!! It fits you and therefore Harper, so well! Too cute!

Have fun at the big game! Don't get too cold!

Meredith said...

What a posh crib Miss Harper has! :) I had that pink/brown zebra in my "girl stash" too. Love it! I think the little red coat is cute.

Leigh Ann said...

Oh, Kelly, that bedding is JUST PRECIOUS! I can't wait to see it in person, and the little one that will be sleeping there. :)

Heather Bug said...

LOVE the bedding!!! That coat is pretty cute, too! We had 6 free seats in Hog Heaven for the game tonight but we ended up not going because we didn't want to be on the road all night. We're listening to the game right now ont he radio. Hopefully, we'll catch up soon. Go HOGS!!!

Laura Ann said...

The bedding turned out so cute, I love it! Okay, so be honest...how many times have you gone in there today? When I first did Emma's, I wanted to hang out in there all day everyday.

Jenna said...

Could there be cuter bedding than that in all the world??? I am gonna have to say NO THERE COULD NOT. I absolutely love everything about it, and it's only missing one thing - the little sweetbabe!

Hope ya'll are having a great weekend! And Happy Birthday to Dawson!! He looks like a little burrito in that blanket. Too cute!

LOVE her bedding!

StitchinByTheLake said...

I love your nursery goodies. We're expecting our 8th grandbaby - a boy - December 31. He has no name yet, but soon I hope. And since his daddy is a high school football coach I suspect the nursery theme will be sports. Since they already have two little girls this will be a big change! blessings, marlene

The Peterson family said...

kelly- I love reading your fun blog!!!! Harper's bedding is darling, especially with the monogram! I am doing a fun give away now with fun personalized baby items.. you may want to check it out or pass it to your other pregnant friends. I am also doing a baby shower on Saturday for a girl and taking some of the ideas you just did... How did you get the colored writing on your dress me up plate.. I have only used black dry erase???
