been a while.....

Well I have basically fallen off the blogging map for quite some time. Unfortunately my dad has been sick for about 12 weeks, and recently diagnosed with Wegeners Disease. Though this disease has been quite traumatic, we are so thrilled for a diagnosis- at last! He has been in the hospital for 2 weeks now, and we are seeing tiny bits of improvement daily. We are PRAYING, WISHING, HOPING he can be home by Thanksgiving. We have been blessed with an many many prayers, emails, phone calls, and a few special visitors. Thank you to everyone that has reached out to my dad and my family in the past few weeks. Today, a designer that works with my Dad sent these flowers after hearing he was sick. I thought they were so beautiful, such a kind gesture from someone who barely knows my sweet Dad....he always has had quite the effect on people :)

So just about everyone I know 'owns a baby'....I don't mean own, I mean lovingly brought precious bundles of joy into this world. But for me, I own a dog, and it will stay that way for quite a while. Though I must say, my young mommy friends (sister in laws especially) are some of the best mommy's ever! For me though, I tend to day dream about 'rooms of the future', and I recently have come across some very sweet things for a nursery.... This bedding is the 'brooke' from Pottery Barn- just love those cute birds and trees!

And with my 'bird bedding' I will have beautiful grey walls- and the TREES! the TREES! I would sleep in here if I could! This is the stunning nursery of Tiffani Amber Thiessen's daughter, Harper- so maybe I'm bias, Kelly Kapowski was my hero for a good 10 years, I was possibly a member of her fan club.....

Clearly I'm a big fan of grey lately..... (ignore the clutter) this is our new living room, in the works! The paint is Stormy Monday by Benjamin Moore. My fabulous boss' at 24e. had their living room painted in this and it was 'to die!!'
