Catching Your Zs...

So what have I been doing for the last 6 weeks?!? Catching some Zs, mostly...Yes, I know it has been a while since I have updated my blog! I can't believe I have been such a slacker when it comes to my site, but in my defense, a lot has been going on. At the end of January, I was put on bedrest after spending some time in the hospital for preterm labor symptoms. You would think that I would have been blogging more since I have been holed up in the bed at home, but with all of the visitors and the number of TV shows coming on daily (ha!), I just didn't find the energy to get on the computer too much. Anyway, on the brighter side, I am feeling much better and am ready to step back into my world of blogging. Baby girl and I are doing great, and we expect her arrival in the next couple of weeks!! Collin and I are super excited about parenthood and continue to pray for a healthy baby and safe delivery. I'll keep everyone updated...nursery pics will come soon too. Of course, being on bedrest, I haven't been able to get out and about to finish the last-minute details of the room, but I promise to post soon with final photos.

For now, though, let's talk design! As I've been lying in bed for the past weeks, my bed has become my best friend - really. I have found a new passion for this amazing piece of furniture, and after doing some research on the different types of beds and bedrooms, I have posted some of my favorites below.
