Vacation Recap

Oops! I went on vacation for two weeks and was too busy to update the blog. Here’s a catch up post.

Matt painted the nursery. (Martha Stewart’s Sea Glass in Glidden base — satin finish)

Then he painted the downstairs hallway. (A Restoration Hardware color matched to Glidden in eggshell finish. I think maybe this color is Gravel? I can’t remember)

Then the upstairs hallway. (Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter color matched to Glidden in eggshell)
Upstairs hallway

Then he did a second coat on the downstairs hallway and painted the kitchen the same color as the hallway. I’m not sure he’ll ever paint again.

We enjoyed a great Christmas and New Years. We hosted a Mad Men/1960s themed NYE party and had a blast (though staying up until 2:30am was a bit rough). Here I am with our niece Adi in our homemade photobooth:

And with a candy cigarette:

We also bought a 1963 Life magazine from the antique store and created a display of old ads:

I also started the third trimester. Cue freak out. We have finally ordered the crib but made no progress on the glider situation. Hopefully we will soon, though, because we’re down to 12 weeks until the due date. Time is going to start flying by.

Cross your fingers that time slows down a bit — I already know that January is going to whiz by!

  1. Holy cow that is a lot of painting!! The colors are great. Your party looks so fun! I love the photo booth, ads and your “outfit” apron.
