Drumroll please....

The winner is...none of the below.  You see, I went to Target the other day and found this set that I quite liked and even better, it was on SALE!  Hello, can't beat that!  So I snatched it up and have a few ideas of what I can do with it.  So thanks everyone for your input.  
Also, Carin, pictures of the shower on Friday will be up soon, you were deeply missed!

So much blogging today

I've been spending quite a bit of time messing around on the computer today {be sure to check out the baby bedding posts below 'cause I could really use some advice}.  Along with bedding, I found some killer photoshop elements actions that have made me so happy!  I've been playing around with them and this is what I've come up with so far.  




After-Strawberry Glaze



I'm still learning, but hopefully I'm getting closer.

#8 & 9

This is #8, I found this a little later, Really liking it.  It's a light blue, but has a fern print, which is more feminine.  


So all we really need to get for the baby is bedding.  We have everything else, we just need to get the crib ready.  However, I have been searching high and low for bedding that I like and I just can't decide.  I haven't really found anything I love, wait, I take that back, I have but it's like $500 dollars for the set, and honestly, I didn't even spend that much on my bed, so that's a negative.  Anyhow, these are some of the ones that I'm contemplating:

#1 I really like this one, I'm thinking I could add a lot of yellow and brown in so it's not so boy-ish, in case we have a little lady.  I'm not so hot on tons of pink as it is, and this blue is a kind of aqua blue, so it's kind of girly.

#2  I'm not totally hot on the animal theme.  I know it's a unisex thing, but I just have a hard time with it {just like I'm having a hard time that my text is underlined and I can't seem to figure out why and how to fix it!}.  However, I do like the look of these little animals.  So this one's in the running...

#3 I really really like this one.   The colors are kind of boyish, as far as blue and green, but I think the print is quite feminine.  Truthfully, this is my top pick, but Rob doesn't like the paisley, but let's just be honest here, I really really like it.

#4 This is a top pick as well, I like it, but I don't love it, at least not as much as #3.  I like the elephants, how could you not, but I feel like it's a little plain, when compared to #3 because it doesn't have the blue, it's just brown and green, and there's no way to really tie any other colors in.
#5  I just had to throw this one in, if it wasn't for the price, this would already be on the crib.  I LOVE this one!  Love the red, the yellow and the blue and brown.  But alas, I just can't bring myself to spend that much on a crib set.  So needless to say, unless someone wants to give us some green paper, this one is out of the running.

#6. This one is my least favorite, and probably won't make it past here, but for a while I was thinking of doing black and white and then I could just match it with some pink or red.  Nice idea, however, I don't really like the print, it's a little to small and therefore, looks to busy to me.  Most of the black and white bedding I found is that way, so I think I've opted to get away from this idea.  Plus, if you know me, you know I'm a color girl.  I love to have bright colors, so I want something bright and bold, okay, not necessarily bold, but fun and happy.

#7 This goes along with the black and white as well.  They have this in brown also, and I think I may go for that.  I like that this set has a more simple lines rather than all the business of the set above.  However, I'm afraid that this will get dirty quickly and I'm not 100% sure what I could mix it with.  The more I type and think about it though, the more thoughts and options come to's a possibility.  It has more of a chance than #6.
So there you have it.  PLEASE leave a comment and let me know your vote, maybe why you say that, and if you have any ideas as to what I can do with it.  Time is ticking and this is one of the last things that NEEDS to be done, otherwise little baby won't have a place to lay his head.  BTW, 30 days left, I'm praying all go early! Seriously!

32.5 weeks

Here's for Carin, and anyone else who is NOT missing anything by seeing me in my current state.  While taking these Rob was like "if you hate it so bad, why do you want pictures to remember it?"  Oh Hon, how I love you!
