Less than a month…

Well we’re in the home stretch for real now as we’ve closed in on the 30 day mark, actually less but who’s counting?! Oh that’s right I am!

I decided to make some of the decorations in baby’s room.  I purchased these letters at Michael’s and painted them a teal colour.  Since the furniture is an espresso colour and we don’t know baby’s sex I thought that would be a neutral enough colour.  I also bought plain white canvases that I painted dark brown and then put the letters together.  I think the decals just add to the whole look.

I also decided to pick up some animals from Michaels to go along with our jungle theme.  I again painted the white canvas brown, the words teal and put everything together.  The baby monkey and frog are my favourites!!

I’ve also been able to spend some time with family and friends that are near before baby’s arrival and do cherish each of those moments.  One of those came during a recent afternoon when I was able to go for high tea for the first time with two cousins.  Never having been to high tea before, I found the entire experience amazing.  From the private room that we were in, to the delicate china that we ate and drank from, no detail was missed.  We were so engrossed in our conversation that I forgot to take pictures of the delicious sandwiches, desserts and delectable scones.  I do have a couple photos to give you an idea of the table setting.

If you have a chance to participate in high tea, do it!  It’ll be something that you won’t forget!!

A little ditty about Jack and Diane...no really in all seriousness I'm a daughter, sister, wife and mother. I'm a Greek-American, who has transplanted in Canada. As a first time mom I'm sharing some things as I go along.

  1. Hello Marianne,

    Thank you for your comment. My advice would be to stay organized and select a timeframe of writing that you can handle. For some people it is every day for others it is once a week. Whatever it is make a decision and stick with it. Be organized with your subject topics. I keep a list that I can work from as sometimes you just don’t have those creative juices flowing. Also, write when you’re inspired. Good luck!
