Obsessed: Scallop Love

art nook wall decals

Recently on instagram I shared a sneak peek of something I’m doing for Gigi’s room. These are wall decals, dots to be exact, that I cut in half and applied in this pattern. I got them here!

And even though the design was my own, I’ve been loving all of the scallop inspiration I’ve been seeing as I work on Gigi’s room and the lil man’s nursery!

We are headed back to Utah today. Our time in San Diego with my family has been magical. It also gave me something to look forward to, but now that we’re going home…reality is starting to set in.

I’m having a hard time figuring out how I am supposed to survive this pregnancy for 7 more weeks. I have SO MUCH to do, but I lack the physical energy or mobility to do most of it. Even sewing at this point is horrible, the measuring, crawling on the floor, sitting on a chair! OH THE MISERY. If you’re not a horrible pregnant person like I am, I probably seem SUPER dramatic. But if you have the type of pregnancies I have, well, FIST BUMP.

But I will survive. Maybe. At least Gigi’s wall is SUPER CUTE!

    GAH! I feel you, Alison! Somewhere around 6 mos. prego, even earlier w/ my first, I start to get horrible swelling in my fingers and feet/ankles and that swelling makes me feel like I have tree trunk legs. I get so TIRED, GRUMPY and overwhelmed. Pregnancy ain’t pretty, I’m with you there. Nature overall (or the reproduction aspect) just ain’t pretty in general. It’s messy bizness.

  2. Fist bumps for sure!! I remember profusely sweating while sewing & thinking, forget it, I’m so done with being pregnant. Think of you. Xoxo

  3. Ciao ALison, seguo con molta attenzione questo blog perchè è sempre pieno di idee originali!!
    Grazie mille!!!!!!!

    i think you are so damn awesome. i love peeking into your life 🙂 and although i dont know you, i feel that we are friends.
    you dont know this but you have been a listening ear to me before.
    you can do the next 7 weeks, but it will most likely be long and difficult, but for sure you can do it, of this i have no doubt.
    feel free to rant and be as dramatic as you like, i will always be listening.

    1. well thanks for making me cry 🙂 no but really. thank you so much for being a part of this whole shenanigan. I need to use this comment as a screen saver. lots of love

  5. I was the same kind of pregnant lady you were, but maybe even worse! Im not even 5′ tall and grew a 10lb baby. Lets just say that I didnt go out in public for most of the last trimester with my 2nd, I couldn’t really walk, lol. Long time reader, 1st time commenter.. LOVE your blog!

    1. SO GLAD you said hello! You poor thing! I’m hardly 5’5, so 5 feet! AH! That’s my plan, I have to stop going out because I can’t stop saying offensive things/crying when people ask how I am! hahaxo

    I LOVE that wall!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

    Best of luck with the rest of the pregnancy. At least you good doing it! 🙂

    1. thanks! xo

  7. And sometimes, all it takes is a cute little wall to make things seem brighter:-) I just did a quick polka dot wall in our bedroom, but I’m loving the scalloped version! That’s the nice thing about decals, easy to change your mind, (especially for a commitment phobic person like me:-) xoxo

  8. Gigi’s wall IS super cute! Another great decal idea I’m pinning from your blog!

  9. This is such a fabulous idea… thanks for the link & inspiration. I always wish I had one of those trash picker-upper tong devices when I get that pregnant because there is no way I’m bending over for anything.
    lots of blessings & crumb cake,

    1. OH MY GOSH I need that like now!! such a good idea! thank you! xo
