Last weekend we took the Ryan and Kim show on the road to Chicagoland. We got home on Sunday night, at which time I promptly unpacked the suitcases and baked a batch of brownies.
We were in Chicagoland to see these folks.
Remember how I mentioned that Ryan’s brother and sister-in-law are having a baby? (We call the baby Ron Santo.) Well, Ryan and I made the trip to lend our four hands with some last-minute baby details – painting, finishing some renovation details…
The nursery has been repainted and looks really nice. I showed off my mad cutting-in-the-ceiling skillz. It’s a highly sought-after talent.
I can’t wait to see it all put together with the Seuss decor that my sister-in-law picked out.
Ryan and his brother installed a closet organization system, brought the crib upstairs, put in some woodwork and outlets, and other miscellany.
We also snuggled our furnieces…
Three things that caught my eye in the meccas…
I want this entire bathroom (via The Tile Shop)
and this rug (via Home Decorators Collection)
and these deep bathroom sinks (via IKEA)
And speaking of beautiful bathrooms, I love my sister-and-brother-in-law’s guest bathroom. I want this exact color somewhere in our house. It’s lovely.
I even shot the lid so I wouldn’t forget it.
So that was our little weekend jaunt.
The NewlyWoodwards will work for IKEA… and Chipotle burritos.
Can’t wait for Ron (or Ronita) Santo to get here. I’m pretty sure he/she will love Pottery Barn… and the favorite aunt and uncle. (Hint: That would be Ryan and I.)
