It's Friday, Woo Hoo and Jackson's Room

Happy Friday Lovies.
Man this week has kicked my bottom been long.

 1. Being sick is no fun, watching Jackson not feel good is worse than being sick yourself.
 2. Dad got bit by a Pit Bull {not kidding} he is fine thank god, don't get me started.
3. We are finalizing plans for our trip for Brian's 30th Birthday. 
4. Also planning one heck of a Super Bowl shin dig for our Saints.
{umm I can not wait for next sunday}

 On to the eye candy
I realized going back that I never shared pictures of Jackson's nursery on here.
Let me be honest.
We are a cosleeping family.
Translation, for those of you going huh?  
That means Jackson sleeps in our amazing King sized bed, all cuddled up with us every night. 
Yep, 19m and he still sleeps with us.
We love it. 
I mean seriously every time we have the conversation about moving him out we just can't do it.
It's just to sweet and we know it won't last forever.

But, like every other couple planning for a baby. 
We dreamed, planned and created a precious space for our sweet baby to be. 
{We didn't find out the sex.} 
I am into surprises. I love them. 
Brian not so much but, being the good sport that he is and the fact that 
I was the one waddling around, he went with it.
{he already says IF there is a #2 we will find out, I'm down with that}

Designing a baby room is tough,
Not to mention if you don't know the sex and don't like yellow.
{um, that's me}

I love to watch HGTV and had seen a plan for a nursery paint job that I loved.
{actually, I think it was a girl from HGTV but, was on Rachel Ray 
and I can't stand her show so it must have been fate}
I showed the idea to Brian and he loved it. I had him pick the colors.
 The nursery on the show was done in yellow's and green's. Not our style really.
Who am I kidding. I have no style but, Brian just has a great eye for design. 
So here is what we ended up with.

At the time I would have sworn this room was for a boy or girl.
I was going to bring in a pink chandelier and pink bedding for a girl.
Looking at it now, I must have known it was a boy even though I had no feeling one way or the other.

I will admit this paint job was very ambitious for two people who hadn't ever tried something like this.
I remember telling B we'll only have to tape once and be done in one day.
Ha! Here is our journey in pictures and each step was a day so the paint could dry.

Nice with my mouth open. 
{I'm sure I am trying to convince Brian to let me stay standing on the chair. haha}
Step 1

Step 2

{the jackson before we knew if he was a jackson or a jane}

Step 3
{We did this on two walls. That is why this one is a corner}
{{so really times these steps by 2}}

Step 4

Step 5

and ...

Ta Da!

He does love to play in there and one day I know he will have sweet dreams in this room. 
When he's older we do feel like the look is cool enough to grow with him. 
The "All because two people feel in love" vinyl words do peel off. 
So he won't have to be 6 with this above him even though I think it's swoon worthy.
So there you have it. Our little man's room.

Hope you guys have an amazing weekend!

the nursery is stunning, I really like the sophisticated look and that it's not too babyish. What an awesome job for first-time painters.
