Preparing for Baby!!!

I JUST DID TWO POSTS, SO MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT THE ONE BELOW :)

So with everyone around being so generous with letting us use their baby stuff, an entire room in our house had been taken over! I needed to organize, consolidate, etc... I didn't take a before picture, but I did want to show you what we did this weekend.

This is ALL the storage stuff, packaged up nice and neat for the garage. It doesn't look great right now, but we're planning on getting a big shelving unit for the small stuff so it's not just piled. I am TERRIFIED of the thought of Scorpions getting into our stuff, and I hate the cockroaches and crickets that are around anyway, so everything that was not in a tupperware container got put in a big garbage bag and vacuum sealed :) Now I just need my shelves to finish organizing!


My friend Celeste and I were talking about nursery stuff and she told me that her sister had embellished regular plastic storage baskets with ribbon to match her baby's room. I decided to take a stab at it, and they turned out so cute. Thanks, Celeste!
Below is the finished product with the baskets on the changing table. Joni and Shane gave us this changing table (thank you guys) and we just went in and tightened it up, touched it up, and it's looking pretty good, I think... In my dream world, I'll end up getting both the crib and matching changing table that I am dreaming about for my baby's room, and these baskets will still look great, because the changing table is brown. But, if not, I still think this looks great, and will look even better with my brown changing pad cover that I want from Babies R Us :)

This is the changing pad cover I plan to get. Don't you think it will look so cute?

Your baskets turned out so cute!!! (This is Celeste's sister, btw.) I'm excited to see the finished babies room. The green and brown are adorable.

Yes, it is true; baby stuff takes over your house! I totally love the baskets. What a good idea. The lined wicker baskets are cute, but so expensive. I love yours. The green and brown will be so cute. I love the fabric for the changing pad. It is sooooo soft. The Christmas tree looks beautiful. I am sure it would look even better in real life. I think all of the decorations look great. It is fun to put them up even if you aren't there for Christmas Day. We had such a good time being with you guys. I can't wait for a day when we get to see more of each other. P.S. Thanks for the help when I has having a Christmas meltdown!

Shantelle, thank you so much for your amazingly cute idea with the baskets. It's definitely a saver, and so so cute! I couldn't find olive green ribbon, so I had to use a kind of sage color, but I think it will look good in the end...
