We are now officially a few days away from the journey of a lifetime and my stomach is doing flip flops and my head feels like it is spinning like a top. I was up at 4am yesterday because I just couldn’t lay there and stare at the ceiling any longer. The nerves and anxiousness have kicked into high gear and I seriously cannot sit still. Not sure how I am going to manage 16 hours on the plane knowing that I will be only hours away from meeting my girl when I land in China.
I had a really productive weekend and managed to get Reagan completely packed and got a good start on my suitcase. In addition, I finally have her room ready……. for the most part.
There are still a few things that I want to do/finish, but I couldn’t find the things that I had in mind. Does that ever happen to you? You have an idea, but then you can’t find what you are looking for anywhere. I hit a few road blocks, but I think for now it will do.
Frames from Targ@t filled with scrapbook paper, decorated with ribbon, and an uppercase living quote that has been in my closet for three years turned out to be very cute on the big wall behind her crib!
After failing to find panels that I liked, I found this black and white fabric at Joanne’s and made them myself to go over the roman shade that was already hanging on the window that just happened to match:) The little “blessings” plaque was from Hobby Lobby…… yes, after all this time, we finally have a Hobby Lobby…HOORAY!!!!
This room does not have the best light….I was trying to take a few pictures that would give you a good view of the entire room, so I tried to shoot this one in the mirror. I didn’t use my flash, so I had to crank up my ISO, hence all the grain/noise in all of the photos.
The white dress hanging on the coat rack was Sarah’s christening gown…… Reagan will be soon be wearing it on her special day. I should have gotten a close up so you could see all the detail. I will have to save that for the day she wears it.
So that is the quick tour around her room. I am happy with the way it turned out, but I will be happier when I open the door and see Reagan in there.
I will probably get one more post in before we leave and I plan to post as much as I can to document our trip to China. With any luck, you will all see her in my arms by Sunday night US Time.
4 Days and Counting!!!!
A special thanks to all the bloggy friends and family who sent us goodies that are sprinkled throughout Reagan’s room. We love and treasure all of them.
BTW, I realize that I kind of cheated this week….. but I figured there was enough black and white in her room to give me a pass on actually converting a photo to all black and white.
