Sweet Nursery

This is one of my favorites in a long time. So sweet and simple, really all that new baby needs! I do really love the idea of a tree branch for hanging pretty outfits. Has anyone else tried this? To learn more visit thehappyhomeblog.com.





P.S. Remember this room? & here is one that is painted white.

How precious life is…

My high school friend just posted this on Facebook. It teared me up. How precious life is…
(please help me properly credit the photographer)

The picture is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being operated on by surgeon named Joseph Bruner. The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not survive if removed from his mother’s womb. Little Samuel’s mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta. She knew of Dr. Bruner’s remarkable surgical procedure. Practicing at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb.

During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby. As Dr. Bruner completed the surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon’s finger. Dr. Bruner was reported as saying that when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and that for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile.

The photograph captures this amazing event with perfect clarity. The editors titled the picture, “Hand of Hope.” The text explaining the picture begins, “The tiny hand of 21-week-old fetus Samuel Alexander Armas emerges from the mother’s uterus to grasp the finger of Dr. Joseph Bruner as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life.”

Little Samuel’s mother said they “wept for days” when they saw the picture. She said, “The photo reminds us pregnancy isn’t about disability or an illness, it’s about a little person” Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100 percent successful.

Saturday Nursery

nursery credit

I apologize for the lack of posts lately, it has been a busy month. I’ve been camped out at the hospital the majority of the month, but I am home with the kids this weekend. I am happy to say that my husband is getting better and will hopefully be coming home in February.

In the mean time I’ve been busy doing some things to the house. New window shades, carpet (even though i really hate carpet!), new bed, and I am redoing my office as well! I am also thinking about a bigger dining room table, because I want to entertain more in 2012. We have so many great friends and have been quite antisocial the past few years. I’ll be posting some dining room inspiration on Spearmint Decor later this weekend so check back!

For those that are decorating children’s rooms, I really loved the use of the IKEA STOCKHOLM RAND rug in the room above. The spider & that tiger poster are really fun as well. Anyone know where tiger poster can be purchased?

UPDATE: thanks to Naomi for sending a link to the tiger poster: click here. She also mentioned that they will ship to the US for a very reasonable rate if you shoot them an email. Who knew!

SeeHere.com is offering up 20 FREE Photo cards with envelopes for NEW members. Just sign up for an account (if you already have one just use a different email address). Make a 4×8 single flat Photo Card, and then add 20 cards to your cart. Enter coupon code 25cards at checkout.  You total should be $1.49 shipped!

ebates-gift-card-bonus

Many of you probably got lots of Gift Cards as gifts over the holidays. Now you can spend them and earn an additional gift card :)

Wahoo this awesome offer is back & just in time for holiday shipping!! Ebates is offering up a $10 Gift Card when you sign-up. Ebates is awesome, and it is a nice way to earn cash back on your online purchases. I use it all the time.

To get the gift card, you just have to make a purchase of $25 or more through Ebates within 90 days of sign-up which should be very easy to do with the holiday season! Since most people shop online and spend $25 or more at sometime or another this is a VERY NICE added bonus to your everyday shopping. Your gift card will automatically come by mail once you make your first $25 purchase through ebates.

About Ebates:
Ebates is the pioneer and leader of online Cash Back Shopping. The company was founded in 1998 by two Deputy District Attorneys in Silicon Valley who used to prosecute online fraud & identity theft before starting Ebates (so you can be sure we are very into secure online transactions!). So go ahead, sign up and start shopping now. Joining Ebates is always free – you’ll never pay us anything. And four times a year or more, we’ll mail you a Big Fat Check, or transfer the money to your PayPal account if you’d prefer. We can even send the money to your favorite charity. All 100% free.

People often ask: “This sounds too good to be true, how are you able to do it?” It really is quite simple. Just like almost every other online shopping center, we get a commission from the stores when you make a purchase. Instead of keeping that money – like almost all other sites do – we share it with you!

So, as long as 1200+ of the world’s top online stores are happy to pay a bonus to attract the new, valuable customers we send their way, Ebates is going to continue to send Big Fat Checks to our satisfied customers across the globe.

You can still get a FREE $10 Vita Cost Credit, when you create a new Vita Cost account. The unique coupon code will be emailed to you once you sign up.  Shipping will be $4.99, but the $10 coupon will take off your entire purchase total even if it is less than $10.

With the $10 you can get 5 boxes of Annies Mac & Cheese + a filler item like Twin Lab Energy Drink (like a Redbull) or bar of soap + 2 Samples for ONLY the cost of $4.99 Shipping!

34 Week Baby Belly

Hi Shari!

 I’ve been waiting to send in some “show your bump” pictures until I had a really good belly going- and then all of sudden there it was! I’m 34 weeks in these pictures. When I first found out I was pregnant I couldn’t believe that January 2012 would ever get here, but here we are with just a few weeks to go. This little one is my first baby and the gender is a surprise- I’m so excited to find out if we’ll be having a little boy or girl in just a few weeks. I’ve been keeping up with all things pregnancy on the baby section of my blog, tiny sneakers.

Thanks for all the fun baby bumps and inspiration you share on your blog!
