phew. I am quite proud of my handiwork and would love any of your comments. I have spent many hours on this room because I wanted a look I could take with us to our own house when we move next summer.
Other news is that we took some maternity photos this week (36) and as soon as I get some I will post...thanks to my friend Patrea:)
Also, I'm on limited physical activity (aka at home bedrest) for the rest of my pregnancy--what do I do? I can only read and watch TV so much!
