A Tale of a Nursery...

We have two and a half weeks till we find out what the gender of Baby Pate is, but that has not stopped me from constantly thinking about what his or her room will look like. Nurseries are addicting! Ha! So, while nothing has been decided on color or bedding etc, we do have a few things for sure....
This canvas will be our base point for the whole room. It has a funny story really. We bought this picture from Kirkland's last May... I got pregnant in October.... Yep we bought it before we were pregnant. And we were not even specifically trying to have a baby. But I saw it and knew that if I ever had a baby I would want this, so I begged Mr.Pate to let me get it (it was the last one on clearance). We actually bought it the night Mr.Pate's grandma passed away, so it reminds me of her every time I see it and I think thats pretty neat. Anyhow, it is the color scheme that we always gravitate towards in our house and it is babyish but with a modern look to it. Very us. I LOVE IT!! And it has funny animals like a---

 Narwhal! Ha!

We also recently bought these two pieces from Kirklands bc they were on clearance and seemed to fit.

So thats a sneak peak into the makings of our nursery so far. Colors that are being talked about for the wall are a light yellow, greenish blue or slate blue. I have no problem with a blue room for a little girl, but I am not sure the rest of the world agrees with that. We shall see!


  1. love those! and we already painted the room that will be a nursery if we ever have kids a pale blue--i think it can work for either

  2. The jungle theme worked for us for a girl and the blue room too. :) Since we were told 99% boy I had already started and jokingly said, "heck, I will just put bows on all the animals if it is a girl!" Well, we have bows and the elephant has pink toenails! Nursery's are addicting and FUN!!!! Enjoy the registering part!!!! You look so cute!

  3. LOVE IT! Sarah is doing a jungle theme too in her nursery, and I am ALL about it!
