Well now that our identical twin boys are almost 8 weeks old, it seems like a fine time to post photos of their sweet little nursery that they have yet to sleep in! Before we found out the gender of our miracle babies, I was certain that we were having girls. I was secretly designing a glamorous twin girl nursery, that I had to completely had to scrap when we found out our little blessings were boys!

After living in the beautiful state of Arizona for two years, I developed a deep love for "Southwest"style.
