We kicked off our Christmas with our yearly tradition of visiting the tree farm after thanksgiving and searching for the perfect tree. Things were a little different this year- a quick feeding in the car, timing it out between naps, and skipping the hot cocoa because the midwest decided to bless us with a 70 degree day right before December.
i am so incredibly excited to share this post!! Baby C’s nursery has been an act of labor & love and I will never be able to repay my husband for all the time he put into our home while we waited for our son.
I can’t believe how close we are to meeting our little guy. We are 38.5 weeks & my body is definitely telling us that we will be a family of four in no time. While we’ve been so busy catching up from the crazy past month, we have finally finished the nursery + packed our bags for the hospital.
A few weeks ago I posted to Instagram + added a little caption about how I had been working way harder to keep up with blog posts and partnerships. Literally within a few days, the unexpected happen and here we are a few weeks without any new posts.
Before we catch back up with the Nesting Series, home updates, and some new brands we’ve been loving, I wanted to share what we’ve been up to.
Oh our sweet baby, how badly you were prayed for! Read more on that here. It was late June, a hot summer day. We were planning a weekend away in Colorado the following weekend and I was about to sign a lease on a studio. After your daddy and I talked and talked about the finances, the lifestyle change, and YOU-we made the decision,Ā if we were still waiting for you, I would go ahead and sign a 6 month lease.
If you follow me over on Instagram, you would have seen my post about our exciting news of moving to the city thatās on fire! Weāve been preparing for our move to KC for quite a few months now.
When we left our college town and moved back to my husbandās hometown I knew I wanted to raise our babies there someday. Thereās a special little feeling of being apart of such a small and amazing community, one that I didnāt expect to feel with not being from there.
As we all know, usually, nothing goes as planned. Chase started applying for jobs and found his love and passion in sales. He set big goals and succeeded way faster than either of us would have expected! Within a year and two weeks he found himself checking off his second to biggest goal in his field- becoming a representative out of KC. So here we are- closing on our āvery first homeā tomorrow.
Our process of house shopping was quite the experience. The night we landed from our honeymoon, Chase had an e-mail from his boss telling him there was a position open, even though it was 11pm, he applied that night. Christmas Eve, we got the best gift of all, finding out Chase had got the position after a few very LONG months. We started the house hunting process right away. We were looking at homes non-stop and nothing was giving us the feeling we had hoped for.Ā We were both getting really frustrated and aggravated with the process. We considered multiple ideas but something told us to keep looking. One morning at 6am, I was pouring my coffee when I got an alert about a historic home for sale. I opened the link and there it was, the place we would soon call home.
I think we both knew it before we even got there later that day. It took us a whole few hours to put an offer in and before we knew it we were under contract. Itās funny how things work out if you keep pushing forward even when times get tough.
We canāt wait to share our adventure with nesting in our new home!
