Ellie's Room (the first post of many)

Have I ever mentioned that my husband LOVES superheroes?  When I first met him, he told me about his hobby.  When I first visited the house, nothing could prepare me for the "superhero room."  It was crazy-awesome with all of the items that he had collected through the years.  Now being the awesome wife that I am, the superhero room stayed a part of the house until we found out that we were having a girl.

 I feel it necessary to share the last pictures taken of Brandon's prided room.

Don't worry!  All of the items have been safely packed away.  (We hand picked a few superheroes that will be a part of Ellie's room too.)  When we purchase another home, I definitely want to have a basement so we can display all of Brandon's superheroes again.  He was so proud of his room, but I know he will be even more proud of his daughter.


Once we found out we were having a girl, it didn't take long for us to start thinking about what we thought her room should look like.  We both agreed that there would be little pink used in her room!  Brandon picked out a pretty green color that can be best described as the grass in Easter baskets.  We started off by taking our time, patching up and trimming the walls.

Much to my surprise, Brandon had completed the room last Saturday (Jan 5) while I was at work.  It's absolutely beautiful and I cannot wait to start decorating! 

We're planning on decorating her room with black furniture.  We kept one of the black shelves used from the "superhero room" to display her superheroes, pictures, and other keepsakes.  I am on the lookout for black and white polka dotted curtains, but will find the fabric if none exist.  I'm against picking out overpriced bedding that she'll never use.  Plus I want to make sure that whatever I choose is breathable.

Here are some of the superheroes that will be a part of Ellie's room.

The lunchbox contains the original thermos!  Both of these items came from my Gran's house.

This is the first superhero item I ever purchased for Brandon.  You don't even want to know how much I spent on it!


  1. What kind of theme are you going for? In the Nursery?

  2. Love the color. Like the idea of not pink everywhere. And if I have another boy, the nursery will be superhero themed.

  3. You guys are just to cute! I absolutely love the idea of a unique nursery and not tradition setting. Those superhero look like a great collection. I've been watching a series on t.v about a guy who collects toys :)


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate your comments and support on our journey.

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
