Sweet Dreams

We've, well mostly, I have been thinking a lot about how to decorate Beanie Baby's bedroom. The key words I've been thinking are adorable and affordable. We are not planning on finding out the sex of the baby (we're totally crazy, I know!) so I've been trying to find some gender-neutral ideas for bedding and decor. For some reason, I think it's a boy. I don't really have any legitimate reason for thinking this but I just do. Obviously, we'd be thrilled either way but in the back of my mind, I just think it's a boy! That said, I've been trying to find nursery ideas that aren't too feminine but would work for a girl just in case. I've ruled out pink and blue and am leaning towards oranges, yellows, greens, etc. I did a little googling and found some sweet images that sparked some inspiration...
I really love the picture frame cluster in this picture and the contrasting curtains and valence!

In this picture, I really like the brown modern pattern bumper!

I like the rug in this picture and the wall hangings. My dear former roommate Haley had some of these hanging in our house and they are super easy and cheap!

This is the favorite bedding I've found so far. I came across it a few weeks ago online and I can't remember where I saw it! I should have bookmarked the link! Sigh. I like the light green and the gray wall is really sweet. We haven't decided if we are going to paint the room yet, but if we did, I'd like a lighter gray maybe...
So many ideas and decisions and thankfully... a lot of time to figure it all out!

We are...

thrilled to announce some great news...
Baby Johnson #1 is on the way!!!!
So far, he or she is only about the size of a lime! Even at my first ultrasound, you can tell how adorable he or she is going to be...
Just kidding - how can you even that that's even a baby?!? It's so blurry and miniature - but we COULD see it's little heart beating and flickering and that was pretty incredible!
Baby Johnson is due to arrive sometime at the beginning of August - I am due August 4th!
We praise God for creating this little life and we are so excited to watch His plan unfold over the next several months!
