My friend Natalie was one of the first people I met when we moved here and began attending River City Community Church. However, it wasn’t until 2 years later, when I was pregnant with Luke and she was pregnant with Reagan that we really began to get to know one another. We were both pregnant through a very hot, Texas Summer and it was so nice to see one another at church and to know exactly what the other was thinking…
I want this baby out of me
This is all my husband’s fault.
Kidding…I’m kidding…well…kind of. :)
And then our babies were born and we spent a lot of time together on Sunday mornings in the cry room. She is such a blessing to me and has become such a dear friend. And the bonus is that our husbands like each other too. :) Jason and Natalie are both on staff at our church and give so much of their time and energy to our church family. Galen and I both appreciate them SO much.
Well, when Natalie found out she was pregnant with baby number three ( a girl!!) I knew I wanted to do something special for her and the baby. I wish that I could have sent her on a week long spa vacation…but unfortunately my check book didn’t agree with that plan. :) So instead I asked her if I could help her “design” her girls new room. I enlisted the help of my friend Daphne who also loves to sew and who is an expert at window treatments and we got to work.
Last Friday Daphne and I showed up at Nat’s house with a trunk load of goodies and we got to work. I had SO much fun!! I wish I could do a project like that every week. The best part was being able to bless such a sweet friend.
Here are some pictures, but I need to apologize for the quality. I forgot to change the lens on my camera and I was not able to get a great angle. I ended up using my phone for some of them. So…not the greatest quality pictures…but here they are…

The baby’s side:
I need to go back and get some better pictures…especially of the curtains…they are amazing! I also told Natalie that I want to change what I did above the crib. It is not my favorite…she laughed at me. ha ha :)
Love you Nat…can’t wait to meet your sweet baby girl!
