last night, while wasting time on the internet, i came across this:

“modern world map” print, via these are things.

and it hit me like a ton of bricks.  yellow and aqua.  and just like that, travis and i decided on the colors for little k’s nursery.  they are absolutely perfect!  it’s gender neutral to start, but with the right accents thrown in it can become decidedly feminine or masculine.  to me these colors are sunny, warm, and so wonderfully happy.  of course, this snowballed into me spending all night on my computer, seeking out the perfect matching components.

first of all, the crib.  you may remember this crib in espresso from this post.  now we’re thinking we might like it better in white:

crib by simmons, via buy buy baby.

i quickly found the perfect crib set on target’s website, which is perfect for a boy or a girl:

crib set via migi, available at target.

our nursery space has a nice-sized window, which faces where the crib will be.  this, of course, necessitates curtains:






curtains via: 1.  bed bath and beyond, 2.  modcloth, 3 & 4.  urban outfitters, 5.  land of nod

we  will likely live in our current apartment for less than a year after the baby is born.  this, coupled with expenses, makes us unwilling to paint the space.  the perfect compromise are these wall decals, which are easily removable and reusable:

alphabet wall decals via threadless for blik.

now for all of those little extras!

clock via modcloth.

wooden arabian rocking horse by plan toys, via bloume baby.

poster via studio violet.

random vintage print.

so there you have it!  these items are the inspiration for little k’s nursery.  travis and i love every single item listed here and can’t wait to start putting it all together!

evening sickness.

i think i’m finally seeing the light at the end of the nausea tunnel.  i only get mildly nauseous once or twice a day, usually after i brush my teeth.  yes, my gag reflex is so sensitive that brushing my teeth sets it off.  twice it has led to actually throwing up.  it’s the worst cycle ever.  brush teeth, throw up, brush teeth again, throw up again and so on.  i have to say that so far this is the weirdest unexpected side effect of pregnancy.

my fatigue seems to be subsiding as well.  i’m still more tired than usual, but now i’m able to fight through it and stay a bit more lucid.  sleeping for 12 hours a day/night was no good!

p.s. how amazing is this kitchen play set?

play set via pottery barn kids.

travis and i seem to favor toys like this, which encourage imagination, instead of those which beep, buzz, and over-stimulate.  i still think that i’m having a girl.  i feel mentally prepared for a girl, but we would be thrilled with either.  i can’t wait to find out in just over 2 months!

on an unrelated note, fruit snacks have never tasted so good!
