my pregnancy journey

random thoughts from a first time mom

week 25


big decision now…what colors to paint?!?!? the nursery is coming along and it's now time to decide on a paint color! i've always had difficulty in the past with paint colors so i decided to buy the test paints before committing to the final color. i'm so glad i did! while the blue was what i thought it would look like, i was surprised that i liked the lighter gray than my original pick of a darker one. i decided to do one wall (with the crib) a dark navy blue (Admiralty by Olympic) and the other 3 walls a light gray (Silver Leaf by Valspar) to go with the nautical theme. i basically picked the colors to match a pillow my mom got for us and our chair. i'll match the rest of the decor to the paint! aaron will be painting the weekend i'm in ohio for my baby shower (hosted by my wonderful mom, mother-in-law, and sister - big blog post to come!!) so i won't have to be around the paint fumes (love you honey!!). i can't wait to see how it turns out!!!! see the pics below documenting the preparation :)

our baby BOY is the size of a cauliflower!!!
