Nursery Ideas

Now that we know we are going to have a sweet little girl, the fun begins. Shopping, decorating the nursery and more shopping! Girls are so fun and the clothes out there is too precious!

My idea for the nursery is going to be very elegant, classy, vintage and a tiny bit of sparkle. I want to do lots of whites, soft pink, mint and gold with gray walls. This weekend we are going to start painting her room with the perfect gray. Benjamin Moore's Rodeo, like the room below.

Our Gender Reveal Dinner

On Monday morning, November 10, 2014, we had our ultrasound that would reveal the gender of sweet Baby Martin. The appointment was at 9:00 a.m. and we planned on having dinner that night at a local seafood restaurant with our family to find out. The same seafood restaurant that Mike proposed to me at and where our rehearsal dinner was at. It is kind of our place. We wanted something more than just opening the envelope and saying it was a girl or boy, so we decided to have a cake reveal. It was easy and we knew our family would catch our reactions on film. Immediately after our appointment we drove over to HEB to drop off the envelope and to have them prepare a small cake with either pink or blue filling inside. We had to get that envelope out of our hands before peaking ensued. The day drug on with anticipation and just wanting to know what we were having. We both came to the conclusion that it was probably a boy, because we both wanted a girl so bad. We would be happy with a boy or girl, as long as it was healthy. We got to dinner that night at 6:00 p.m. and didn't begin ordering our food until after 6:30 and having that cake right there was just too much, so we cut the cake before dinner. You can check out our reactions HERE. I am so glad we did it this way and we now have a video to remember that day for the rest of our lives. We can't wait to welcome this sweet little girl to this big ole world!
