Momma bought your crib today!

I went ahead and did the inevitable…and bought a crib for our little one since Mr.Frank has at least another year and a half or two in his (he just turned 1 two weeks ago)! Finding one that would work was a bit tricky because I needed the crib to be under 40 inches in height for […]

That is a GREAT crib. Love it!

and paint color is totally important–I am right there with you 🙂

I remember how excited I was the day we got our crib for Isaiah =) How fun! And thanks for sharing about the colors…I'm a first time mom so I was excited to see that my color choice, light blue, was in the calm category. You'll have to share a picture when you've got his cozy room ready!

I've been thinking a lot about painting my son's room a light blue. When I was pregnant with him we were remodeling THE ENTIRE HOUSE and I was so sick of painting at that point. We painted it beige before we knew he was a boy. But, I think I'm ready for a change now! You're right about setting the mood though! =)

Our master bedroom is a pale mint green and the curtains and bedding are all white … it's so light and airy! I never have any trouble falling asleep and relaxing with a book – now I know why!!

We're planning on doing our nursery with simple solids too (though I love pattern too) … and I think we want to continue the muted, pale green

Thanks for all the color info! 🙂

You have such great insight on decor. 🙂 By the way, your last comment to me meant so much…I love how you "get it" and know exactly the emotions I feel. Thanks for validating my thoughts! 🙂 Any more updates for ya'll?

uh…so you're saying my mod polka dots might be a bit too much huh?? ha! oh well…I am a pattern kind of gal. nothing in my house is serene and quiet! although Frank's nursery is beautiful!! And I LOVE the new crib! I think it is a good mix of modern and classic with the dark wood!!

I love Frank's room. It's so precious. The new crib is beautiful.

This makes me feel more confident about choosing lilac and sage for our LO's nursery! Hopefully those colors will balance out the black and white damask, stripes, and polka dots . . . . 🙂

Mama should never be the photographer;)

Being a photographer, I always have to laugh when mommies tell me they count on ME to get their Christmas card portraits or those coveted sibling shots that they have NOT been able to get no matter how hard they try! Well, I always say right back that it’s not my camera or me—it’s having […]

LOVE the big pics!!! These are SO fun….and just real! : )

Amy - November 21, 2009 - 3:40 pm

I still think the pictures are cute and funny 🙂

That is funny that you can't get your kids to pose for you 🙂

I am so excited for all the families traveling and I am really hopeful that numbers will start going down in December!!!

The Morgan's - November 21, 2009 - 5:12 pm

This post made me laugh out loud! I love it!

Love the pics- bigger is great! Hey, it is the memories behind the pics that make it fun anyway. Just reminds us that our lives are real….not fairy tales 🙂

Kim - November 22, 2009 - 6:30 pm

Adorable! Love the bigger photos. Please let us know how you to post them in the larger sizes.
Blessings from Hong Kong,

Our drama continued…

OK—promised I’d post about our final movie filming, but I got side-tracked with our MAKING THE WAITLIST…and the “real life” stuff trumps the movie making ANY day! Last Wednesday, we returned to the set to complete our filming in the movie “Life As We Know It” starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhemal which will premiere […]

I can't stop laughing at Laney-loo's picture with Katherine Heigl!! This is probably the funniest picture she's ever taken.. and when she's all grown up, she'll look back and think, "I was with a movie star and this is the face I made!" haha!!!

I love her sooooo much!!!!!!

Katie - November 18, 2009 - 10:26 pm

What a fun opportunity! Very cool that you got to share 147 stuff with Katherine, too! I was just at Gwen's house tonight getting more necklaces for Christmas gifts. Love them :).

I love the picture of Laney and Katherine…priceless. Thanks for sharing about your fun. I think I will stay out of the movie business, but it was fun to see it though your experience 🙂 So, glad you are on the waiting list too! Did you see all of the court and travel dates that were given this week. I can only guess that lots of referrals will be given after December 🙂

Jenn - November 19, 2009 - 6:53 am

what a hoot!! such a fun memory for your whole family!!


Lauren - November 19, 2009 - 8:32 am

too cute!!

Great story – love Katherine Heigl, she is such a sweetheart.

[…] as I cleaned our files, I stumbled upon 6 random checks from the movie we were in last Fall (another crazy story of God’s provision). We also randomly last week got a check in the mail from a past photography job that I decided […]

Ahhhh…the life of movie stars;)

Well, we were down for a day of shooting tomorrow in the movie “Life as We Know It”…but one of the kids in the birthday party scene apparently is sick and unable to come. We’ve already filmed the birthday scene from one angel–now we are going back for the same scene from a different angel. […]
