    Nursery Peek and a Lulu & Georgia Giveaway | Oh Lovely Day

    Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely summer weekend. I finished baby #2’s nursery over the weekend and am so in love with the finished room that I keep finding myself in there, just hanging out. So I thought I’d share a little peek (an official room tour post with source links for everything you see will come after baby is here) and celebrate with a giveaway from Lulu & Georgia, one of my favorite home decor brands and the maker of our nursery rug.

    Nursery Peek and a Lulu & Georgia Giveaway | Oh Lovely Day

    The photos (and my photography) don’t do this rug justice – it has such vibrant ombré shades of blue and it is so soft and cozy. Charlie likes to lay on it and says he is swimming in the ocean. It really pulls the ‘cali-cool nautical nursery’ together.

    I’ve got so many goodies from Lulu & Georgia on my dream wish list (like this rug for my office). If you do too, today is your lucky day because we’re giving away $100 credit to Lulu & Georgia! Enter below through 8/1/14 and the winner will be announced in the entry box below on 8/2/14, so be sure to check back.

      My baby’s nursery has bare walls. I would add wall art with the $100, like the Born to do this, be yourself or the Metron mirror.

      My first baby is due in 3 weeks & I still don’t feel like we have everything to make it feel personal for her. A little extra could go a long way in putting my nerves at ease.

      Congrats on #babyfredrickpartdeux 🙂 I have been a long time follower of your blog and am so excited, as my husband and I just found out we’re having a boy too! 🙂 Great job on the nursery!!! We currently have an empty room, so winning this Lulu and Georgia giveaway would be great! I would use the $100 to spend towards the Shoreline Rug – the colors are very calming and soothing!

    •  Continuing the Halloween theme today because I'm in a Halloween mood  Last year. My favorite movie as a kid became Charlie's favorite last year and he wanted to be Jareth so bad. I wasn't sure I could pull it off, but we did. Even down to dressing Calvin as Toby because he was the perfect age. I don't think it will ever get better than this for me. #dancemagicdance #babewiththepower #labyrinth  Motherhood is a constantly evolving state of total joy, exhausted agony, superhuman strength, and very human failures. As soon as you celebrate that superhuman successful day, it is replaced with new challenges. And just when you think you can't go one more day, you get a day so magical you want to have ten more babies. I'm in the midst of one of those exhausted phases again but I keep trying to remind myself that it is this phase that makes the magical days shine brighter. In the wise words of Miley Cyrus (I'm actually serious): it's all about the climb.  We've got this mamas. (Tag a momma who needs to get cheesy and read the words to a Miley Cyrus song ) #battlefieldmotherhood _______________________________________________ I can almost see it. That dream I'm dreaming, But there's a voice inside my head saying, "You'll never reach it." Every step I'm takin' Every move I make feels lost with no direction, My faith is shakin' But I, I gotta keep tryin' Gotta keep my head held high There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side It's the climb The struggles I'm facing The chances I'm taking Sometimes might knock me down, But no, I'm not breaking I may not know it, But these are the moments That I'm gonna remember most  Just gotta keep goin', And I, I gotta be strong Just keep pushing on, 'Cause... There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side It's the climb.
       Countdown to Halloween is on! Reminiscing about that time Charlie was @macklemore for Halloween, 2013. Kid was two weeks shy of three and played the part to a tee. What is your favorite costume you or your kids ever did? #isthatyourgrandmascoat #poppintags #charlieasmacklemore #babymacklemore #bornentertainer #charlesdashiell  We have this hat, passed down to Charlie from my friend's little boy, then passed down to Calvin. It's just a simple grey hat but it is so so cute and is the thing that my boys wear the most in the toddler years. It holds so much sentimental value for me. Well yesterday I took the babies on a walk and somewhere along the way Calvin chucked it. He also tossed his shoes but I saw those right away. It wasn't until we stopped for lunch that I realized the hat was gone. I was so sad about it that I retraced our steps to see if I could find it. No luck. I'm pretty sure he tossed it in Goodwill while I was digging for stuff for our Halloween costumes. Which means it is gone, because when you lose something in Goodwill it is seriously like looking for a needle in a haystack. I've been sick about it ever since, which I know is silly. It's just a hat, after all. But it's one of those things that I was planning to pass to Quincy and then save forever and when I was old and grey I would dig it out of the attic and take a walk down memory lane. You moms know what I'm talking about. But it's gone and all I have are photos and the memories. Luckily Calvin had started putting it on Quincy's head and last week I snapped this picture. Charlie and Calvin both kept saying "cuuuuuuute" ❤️ I hope it makes its way onto another little boy's head someday #thefredrickboys #calvinandquincy #brudders #thebrotherhoodofthegreytoddlerhat
