I look at this little piece of perfection and I'm amazed.   

I can't look away.

How did I get so lucky, so blessed to be made the mother of this little one?

Sometimes the love I feel takes my breath away. 

I hope she always knows exactly how much I treasure her.

Presley: 3rd Month

Yeah, I'm behind, but the "picture a day" goal is still there.  

Here is Presley's third month!

Presley's Nursery

I don't think I ever posted a blog with pictures of Presley's completed nursery.  

Here you go!

This hung on our hospital room door.  It says "It's a girl!" 
She's been in the crib at night since the beginning.  There have been a few  exceptions.
We have a 2 bedroom house, so the nursery has a guest bed too. 
Mom got us this picture frame at Mistletoe Merchants.
The colors coordinate beautifully with the nursery.
Changing table is in the bathroom.  Our guest bathroom is huge.
Behind the curtain is a little storage area.  
My friend Catherine gave us that bookshelf, which we sooooo needed.
We try to read to Presley every day. 
Family pic that has not yet been hung sits on top of Presley's chest of drawers. 
One of our wedding pictures hangs above her chest of drawers.  
That hawk is very special.  My uncle and his sweet girlfriend gave it to us for Christmas.
Since my grandfather passed away, he seems to show up during certain special times as a hawk.
This hawk watches over Presley at night. 
Presley's first babysitter, Fran, made this beautiful growth chart for us.  I can't wait to start using it!

Stitch Fix #1

So, my friend Janice told me about Stitch Fix.

It's a super cool idea.  

1.  You go to the Stitch Fix website.

2.  Fill out a really long survey about your style.

3.  Schedule your "fix." 

4.  Pay $20 styling fee.

5.  Wait for your fix.

6.  Try on everything.  

7.  Decide what you want to keep.  Return what you don't want to keep within 3 days.  

8.  If you keep anything, your $20 styling fee goes toward the purchase of your items.  

So, here are the items I received in my first fix.

I need help! What do I keep? What do I send back?! I've got three days! 

Hildie Tie-Neck Abstract Print Blouse $44

Sedona Dot Print Shirtdress $78

Marana Carved Scroll Strand Necklace $32

Kerman Tribal Print Tab-Sleeve Blouse $58
