{creative release}

I finally did some scrapbooking last night and it felt sooo good. :) I still have a ton of pages that I want to do, but it was a start. It was a relief that the ideas came to me quickly...I was afraid after a few months off that I wouldn't have any inspiration. Of course beautiful papers and embellishments are pretty inspirational all on their own. I love the picture of my parents when we told them we were pregnant...the looks on their faces are priceless. :)

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed today with our to do list before the babies arrive. Actually, I have a to do list in my head before our shower, since it is going to be at our house. It is on the 29th of this month, so I'm starting to feel panicked. I need to just make a list, share it with the hubby, and figure out a battle plan. I know the house won't be perfect, but there are certain things that really need to be finished before we have 20 or so guests over.

Speaking of the shower, I'm trying to figure out what to wear. It is hard to tell what the weather will be like, but since I won't have to go outside I'm determined to wear something springy. I really like this shirt from Old Navy...

I would pair it with my denim pencil skirt and flats of some sort. People don't get super dressed up around here for showers, and I really want to be comfortable. What color jewelry? I'm thinking white accessories would look cute, or a complementary shade of green.

Oh...can't believe I forgot to mention this! We finally ordered the cribs and bedding this past weekend!! Now it is starting to feel very real! Here is the crib we chose...

I'm so excited to start getting the nursery together! Hopefully my owl lamp and cute pillow from Urban Outfitters will arrive this week. :)
