We had a visit from brother bear and Chris for Thanksgiving and this time they were able to stay for nearly a week. It was a great visit. As I posted last week, Grandpa George, Dean and Chris painted the nursery and it came out great! The painting is done and George is going to install the new fan in the next week or two. Not only did we make progress on the baby room, but after searching for baby furniture at every single store in town, we found our crib and dresser/book shelf! With it being black Friday we purchased everything earlier than we had planned to. We just couldn’t pass up on the great deals :)
A Roybal Thanksgiving!
Sneak peak of the nursery!
Two walls are a Tiffany turquoise and the other two are white.
Below is a picture of our crib! We were looking for something in a dark cherry wood that could convert into a toddler bed, and while I thought this would be easy to find we ended up visiting about 10 places in total. Nearly every crib we came across was huge and had bulky headboard looking things on the back. After much searching we came across this crib and fell in love! We loved the color and the fact that it’s solidly built and not gigantic. My moms gift to us is the crib so special thanks to Nani :)
My BF Sara had her baby shower on Saturday which was so much fun. It was great to see all the High School homies and to shower Sara and baby Olivia with love and tons of gifts! I’m so excited that Grace and Olivia are only going to be 6 weeks apart. Sara and I have already begun to talk about family trips we will one day take together and the girls aren’t even here yet. First up, Disneyland! Sara and I have been close friends for 20+ years and have been through so much together so it was pretty wonderful to share in this special day with her!
