Well, my lovely sister sent me this and I really like the patterns, but I'm not sure if the green is bold enough to match the color I like for the room.
But, it made me realize - this is really what I want - a mixture of bold colors in assorts prints (I really like dots & stripes together), but that still "match" with one another. Thinking about talking my Mom into making a crib bumper and skirt instead of shelling out big bucks for a set!

Decorating Decisions!

Well, now that we are sure baby B is a BOY, I'm must determine my decorating strategy! I had already decided, girl or boy, that I'm painting the nursery a bright green color. It needs to look good with the rest of our tiny condo and not look too baby for when we sell it someday (so no big murals painted on the walls). I'm trying to avoid any thing too themey, but I'm finding that to be difficult.

Potential nursery bedding options...

It's A...

Just in case anyone hasn't already heard, Baby B is a BOY! Z is over the moon and cannot wait to buy basketball hoops and some new gaming system that is coming out. He is very excited to have a boy household!

For some crazy reason, I really thought the baby was a girl, so I'm still adjusting, but very happy that everything looks good and that he is healthy. Now I just have to adjust my decorating scheme...more on that later...

Make Room for Baby!

This weekend we took our first step toward making room in our condo for the baby! On Sunday we made a lovely trip to Mattress World and purchased a set of trundle beds. Nothing fancy, just the metal frames and mattresses, but this will allow us to:

a) Combine the guest room & office
b) Keep our lovely desk with the computer set up.
c) Still have room to sleep two guests comfortably (trundle converts to a King sized bed when popped up & pushed together.

But, in order to pull off this melding of guestroom/office, we had to clean out some junk. A lotta junk. I should have taken a picture. Currently the full sized bed is propped up against the window. We had to sift through all the "stuff" stored under that full sized bed. Much of which hadn't seen the light of day since we moved in and shoved it under that bed. Luckily it was rainy and cold on Monday, so it was a good project. I don't think Z enjoyed it AT ALL, but he was a trouper for me and got the job done. It felt so good to have it all done. The new beds were delivered and set up on Wednesday!
Now, please pray for no rain on Saturday, so we can strap the old bed to the roof of the car and drive it down to Z's parent's house!
