Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

So I've been feeling the need to confess something and, in the spirit of this blog and its attempt to make everyone feel better about not being the Pinterest wizards we all pretend to be, I'm gonna do it. Okay. In our old house, Holden's nursery was pretty much the cutest.

It was featured on Apartment Therapy and was adorable, nbd. Whatever. Let's be honest, I bought everything on etsy and made nothing myself, but nonetheless, I was pretty proud of it.

Flash forward to now, three months in our new house, and this is what Holden's nursery currently looks like.

I should probably be embarrassed to show you that, but oh well. Let's break it down: the room isn't painted, we haven't hung anything, I have a freaking diaper box chilling out in the open. There. Don't we all feel a little bit better?

So there you have it: the ugly, honest truth. We're planning on hanging some of her nursery pieces this weekend. Hopefully that will make a difference, but I feel like without painted walls, it's never going to be as cute. I'll post an update after some of the stuff is up!
