Curtains! Hip - Hip Hooray

Who knew one would be excited about the arrival of curtains? We debated long and hard about how to decorate MK's room - but we finally decided on white, gray and pink tones. Lucky for us the walls were already a light grey, so we opted out of paint. Ryan finally gave in and let me order the girliest, pinkest curtains around to match the bedding. The nursery is most definitely a work in progress, but did order the crib and dresser last weekend. However, our curtains finally arrived yesterday (from Restoration Hardware) and Ryan was such an amazing husband and put them right up! Here's how they look:

Ryan testing out the glider too!

Also, we purchased a small bookshelf for the nursery. One of my most excited mommy-to-be thoughts is reading to MK in the glider. I was very excited to get the bookshelf up and did it 75% on my own. I only needed Ryan's help when I accidentally put the side on backwards (no surprises right?!?!)...opps. Right now the only reading materials on it are the ones that we have to do prior to her arrival! Another small item that I've always secretly wanted for a nursery is an over-sized piggy banks - they are such a cute accessory. We found this one at Homegoods over the weekend and so far, as the only decorative item, it looks great! We're in need of a lamp, to go on the bookshelf, but I'm having trouble deciding on a color. Opinions are highly welcomed!

Here is the bookshelf. It's hard to see, but the crib sheet and crib skirt are next to the piggy.
one up-close shot of piggy - just to show how cute it really is!

Thanks for checking in on us!
