We Have a Winner!

I was searching around for diaper bags and look what popped up? Seriously, if I weren't at work I probably would have squealed with happiness. (Yeah, I did it anyway, just quieter) Remember how I said I loved giraffe print? I wasn't joking. I love cute! Now to find matching accessories....

Baby Blanket

I think this blanket is more for me than the baby. I love giraffe print, LOVE it. And I think giraffe print is pretty gender neutral don't you? It has a green backing so it makes it even better. Although since I would want the name on there - I would know what gender we were having.

Owl Pillow

It kind of reminds me a bit of Yoda don't you think? It must be the ears. I love it - it's too cute and something I can see our kid clinging to and using for naps. Eventually - when we let him/her have a pillow to nap with. I love the "retro" feel of it too.


I love this artwork - simple yet pretty - in my opinion. I think it portrays the four seasons and it's something the baby could grow with too. This isn't too baby and nice enough to be displayed anywhere in the house really.

Mossy Letters

I love this - it fits into the whole "nature" theme I seemed to have picked up for the nursery. Although I would have to order it after the baby gets here, seeing as how we won't know the name until the day he or see arrives. It's cool - it's real moss but no longer growing. But you don't have to water it and it won't lose its color. Perfect!

Stroller/Car Seat

This is another thing that I won a few years ago. Had I known then what I know now (that car seats get recalled yearly) I wouldn't have entered for it. I just checked online - this set is still a good buy and it comes highly recommended. We still would have to get another car seat for DH but I'm pretty happy this is one purchase we already have under our belts.

Yes - I enter sweepstakes for baby items even though I'm not even pregnant. I find stocking up a great option.

Sonogram Frame

What?! Is this not something they should just hand out when you get your first ultrasound? I think so! But until wants.

Stokke Bedding

I found a seller on Etsy who says she does custom bedding for Stokke cribs. I'm just putting her info here so when I need it in the future I can find it. Here are some of her fabric options I like:

Monaluna - I like all of them except #1

Natureology in Spring - I love #1, #3, #6, #7, #8, #9 & #10

Cute Critters - I like #2, #4 & #5

Forest Fun - I really like all of them

Wild Thyme Brown Red - I like all of these as well

Monaluna in Sage Blue Brown - I like all of them except for #8 & #9

Large Whimsy - I like all of these

Lily Pond in Green Blue - I like all of these

Bloggy Award

Mommy in Waiting gave me this blogger award! Thanks! :)

I also got this award on my main site as well but I will think of 7 new, interesting facts about me:

1. I'm an aunt, my nephew turned one in November and I have another nephew on the way - due on my birthday in July. I also have two little girls who call me Aunt as well - DH is the godfather to the youngest. I adore them like they were blood relatives.

2. I have a horrible habit of chewing the inside of my mouth up when I'm thinking or stressed out. I don't know I'm doing it until it's too late - I just caught myself doing it while thinking of seven "interesting" facts about me. Gum is my mouths friend, it lets me chew without chomping my cheeks apart.

3. I am a goody goody two shoes. I have never smoked a cigarette before, not even a puff. I have never done any illegal drugs and I have never abused OTC or prescribed drugs. I didn't get drunk until I was 23. Yeah...I know.

4. My favorite animal is a tiger - I think they're beautiful animals. I'm more of a cat person than a dog person but I do adore both!

5. I would love to become a writer someday - I always wrote stories when I was younger and still play with the idea of sitting down and writing a book. You never know - it might be the next big hit!

6. I love TV but I hate being "married" to the TV which is why the DVR is awesome. I get to feed my need for shows without having to miss out on life. HGTV is one of my favorite channels.

7. My favorite color is purple - the darker plums are my favorite shades.

I already nominated 7 people in my last blog and I think everyone else has already received this award in one way or another so if you want it, take it! I love all my followers and the blogs I stalk! :)

Owl Hat

Amy sent me a link to this hat because she said she just had to. I know, she's feeding my obsession but all is fair in love and war because I am always sending her links to cute stuff. haha. I love this hat, it's so stinkin' cute. I also found a matching onesie too.

Did you know that if you bring a hat and blanket to the hospital they will take your baby's first picture with them instead of the standard stuff the hospital has? Yeah, I found that out from a friend who delivered last year. Her son's first pictures are super cute because of it! And I personally think this hat and onesie is gender neutral. Others *coughDHcough* may not agree but who cares what the peanut gallery thinks?

Owls, and foxes and hedgehogs Oh My!

OMG not only is there an owl, there is a HEDGEHOG too! *squee* Isn't it cute? I love it, my forest friend nursery is coming along here. Hopefully this still exists when I'm decorating the nursery.
