These are pictures that they sell at Pottery Barn Kids. However, they're ridiculously expensive, so I'm going to try to duplicate them. I also want to make one with a firetruck, since we're undoubtedly going to have lots of fire related things given to baby Will - I already have a bunch of baby fireman gifts lying on the floor of his future nursery. This theme also allows me to use a ton of color, since I love all colors and can never focus on just a few in decorating.
After hours of looking around, we went home and got ready for Stake Conference.
On the way home from shopping, my mom got rear ended by a brand new teenage driver. My mom was so nice to him and did her to best to calm him down. He looked freaked out and super stressed. I was so excited to be in town for Stake Conference because I haven't heard my dad speak in a long time. It was also great to hear Elder Larry Wilson speak at the Sunday session - he's our previous Stake President and my friend, Brig's, father. I was also really excited to see a lot of my old Danville friends from high school.
Michelle, David, Spencer, me, PJ, Matt and his wife Nicki. It was great seeing my super cool friend, Marisa, too. We couldn't find her, or her husband for the picture though. In addition to the fun Danville trip, I've also taken up gardening (with encouragement from my mom). She brought up two clay pots last week and planted tomato plants for me. She also brought me some beautiful white petunias and red geraniums for my front yard. I've been researching how to care for these plants, and hopefully I will have success - so far anything I've planted has died within a month. She taught me how to prune them, and even bought me a watering can, fertilizer, a shovel, and gardening gloves, so I'm all set. I'm actually surprised with how much I enjoy gardening. I've always wanted to learn, and this should be a great place to start.
My petunias and geraniums - Scott was so sweet and planted them for me (he's such a great husband). The flowers aren't on them right now because it's better for the plant if you pinch the flower off after first planting them. This allows all of the water and nutrients to go to the roots first, so they can settle firmly in the soil. (Hopefully they won't die before the flowers have a chance to grow back.)
What the flowers will eventually look like:
