Ava's Nursery

Before we move Ava into her "big girl room" in a few weeks, I wanted to capture her nursery on the blog. We will be using most of the same furniture and decor in her new room, but it still makes me a little sad to dismantle the nursery that we spent so much time planning and decorating just a few short years ago. 

Since it was carved out of the attic, the room itself has wonderful architectural details as well as beautiful old windows. So, it didn't take much to turn it into the nursery I had always imagined for a baby girl. 

I will forever remember rocking my sweet baby Ava to sleep in this room.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; bad hair days; snoring; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); Miracle Whip; scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and working out. I think that sums it up.
