master bedroom inspiration

I pinned this bedroom picture a few months back on pinterest and thought it was just perfect for our new master bedroom. I just love the dark gray! Our new bedroom is quite bright so I think it will work well in there without making the room too dark.

I'm looking to get two small dressers to use as nightstands so we have a little more storage space.

And this sunburst mirror from Home Depot would be perfect over the bed!

news on the homefront

big news... our house is under contract! We are so lucky that we worked out a contract in just 9 days! It's such a relief to be done with showings! And I can finally get ready for this baby to arrive... We had the inspection last week and everything seems to be moving forward for us to close at the end of April. Having actual dates really makes everything seem more real.

So we will be arriving at our new home in Atlanta on May 1st! Everything is moving along on that front too and we're so excited about the new house! I'm already busy looking for inspiration pics on pinterest! Here's a little preview of the house...

36 weeks!

I can't believe I only have a few weeks left! I went in for an ultrasound this week and was told I'll deliver a week early! Which means we're down to about 2.5 weeks!! Ahhh! Maybe I should pack that bag... The little man was right on track at 6.2lbs! So we're starting to put the baby gear together and the car seat is in the car! Any last minute tips for a first time mom???

the return of Domino?

I have to admit I loved Domino Magazine from the very first issue. I was Lucky subscriber when it launched and they offered it to subscribers for something like $5 for 3 years! I was hooked. Then, sadly, just as I was really getting into decorating and buying my first home it was shut down. You can still find great images from the magazine online but it's just not the same.

Now, after years of hearing how much we've all missed it Conde Nast is bring it back with a special issue! It comes out in April and will be called "Domino Quick Fixes."

Because it is a special edition it will cost more than your typical monthly mag but hopefully will be worth the $10 price tag. Apparently it will feature both new and previously published info. Can't wait to check it out!

where do the days go?

The days are just flying by right now... good thing since I'm 35 weeks pregnant! Although it's mostly because our house is on the market! It went up on Feb 1st and the showings are starting to come through! Fingers crossed.

A few weeks ago we finished up a project that had been hanging over our heads for literally months. Framing the bathroom mirror. Last year I won a Moen Mirrorscapes kit from my friend Roeshel over at The DIY Showoff! It was on my list of things to do before the end of 2011 and I got it done with days to spare!

Let me show you the before pic... just plain standard builder mirror. Boring.

And the after... really wish I did this earlier so I could enjoy it!

I chose the Mirrorscapes 3000 series in Antique Nickel. Here's a close up from the Moen site:

Thanks again to Moen and The DIY Showoff for sending this great product my way!
