Best of 2015

As 2015 comes to a close, most people look back and reflect what they accomplished or they look forward to how they can make 2016 better.

As for me, 2015 was amazing as we found out we will be parents: 

and we look forward to 2016 when our little girl will join us and make our family complete. I am so beyond blessed that God chose us to be parents and I can't wait to grow and lean on Him through this new adventure with the loves of my life. The best is yet to come.

Happy New Year!

Baby Girl Nursery | Design Plans

I actually managed to find time to share our design plans with you all. But let's start with a refresher, the secondary bedroom went from dumping ground to in progress guest bedroom:

We never got to reveal the room as the guest bedroom as it was never complete by time we found out about little love. And after our flood disaster and renovation (yeah, fun times), we sold all the guest room furniture and will now follow this layout once we get all the pieces in.

Our inspiration for the design of the room is based on this gorgeous quilt.

We will also be adding in little touches from these amazing nurseries.
As you can see, the room is set to be pretty neutral with pops of color throughout. I cannot wait to have this room complete and more importantly to have Little Love here. I will leave you all with a little sneak peek of what I am working on and our anchor piece.

Baby Girl Nursery | The Inspiration

As you may have guessed, with Little Love on the way our next home project will be converting the unfinished guest bedroom into a nursery. The last time you heard about this room, I shared my plans of the layout for the room as a guest room, however, the layout will be completely different as will the design, obviously. For a refresher, here is the floor plan I am working with.
Unless you follow me on Instagram, you may be unaware that we had a little flood issue and when I say little I mean huge. All the floors and most baseboards had to be replaced in our entire house, the only area that was not affected was the master suite, THANK GOD. Living through a renovation while pregnant and raising puppies (our female lab had 5 adorable puppies, you can watch videos of their cuteness on my YouTube channel, anyways,) is no fun to say the least.


We basically got to remodel our house and choose new floorings throughout the house, fresh paint on all the walls and baseboards (except the master suite). Shortly after our disaster, we also sold everything from the guest bedroom so Little Love's room is a blank slate for us.

The color we chose for the walls, is a very soft subtle pink.
BEHR My Sweetheart
On my computer screen, this color looks more on the beige/tan side but I promise it's pink. At least in our house and lighting, its pink. When we first found out about Little Love, I did NOT want to do the typical pink for a girl or blue for a boy type of thing. I wanted the room to be colorful to help stimulate the baby's interest and eyesight. The very first image I fell across, I fell in love and knew this would be the inspiration for our baby's room no matter the gender.

What I Wore
I loved how the neutral grays and white played so beautifully with all the colors. However, the quilt stood out the most and I immediately began looking for the source which Jessica from What I Wore revealed she made the quilt herself in her Nursery Plans post. I am not any where near that talented so I began my search of finding someone to make one similar for us. At this point, I wanted the binding and backing of our quilt to be blue for a boy and pink for a girl so we waited until our Gender Reveal before I finally submitted a custom order to Melinda at Ink And Thread Quilts. Which our quilt has the pink binding and backing since Little Love is a little girl (ehh I still can't believe, in approx. 3 months I will be momma to a little girl). And that's also when I chose pink for the walls. Once we found out, I couldn't help having the image of having soft pink walls in the nursery.

As of now, we are still waiting on the arrival of our quilt so the room is still bare with the crib mattress on the floor. I hope to have at least the crib area set up before our babyshower at the end of January and depending on what we receive from our registry have the entire nursery finished before March as Little Love is due at the end of March. If time allows, I will share more details of our plans for the nursery before then.

Gender Reveal | Baby Ramirez 2016

I decided to document our pregnancy as a way to get all my feelings and emotions out and to later look and remember this beautiful time in our lives. I hope you enjoy if you decide to follow along on this life changing journey.

Before we were even pregnant, I always knew I wanted to have a gender reveal party and I knew exactly how I wanted the reveal to happen. I think I planned it about 2 or 3 years ago? I told my friend that I would love if she'd throw it all those years ago and she did an amazing job in putting together my vision for us. Thank you, Jess!

Be warned that this post is very picture heavy as words aren't enough to share or describe this beautiful moment in our lives.

At this point, I read all the names everyone suggested for either a boy or a girl. Some were ridiculous but very funny.

Getting ready for the reveal!

and baby Ramirez is a GIRL!!

I think it is hilarious how I am able to read every thought running through Anthony's mind in each of these pictures. How would you caption them?

So thankful for our friends opening their home for us and putting everything together. We are truly blessed.

Here I decided to tell a little narrative from when I was like 8 or 9; my cousin Ericia kicked me in my private parts and I yelled at her "now I can't have babies!!" Obviously her kick way back than didn't affect me like I thought!

I am so glad our friend Nick captured these moments for us, we will truly cherish it for the rest of our lives and can share it with our babygirl.
