Nursery Insanity and a Sign!!
Oh Bloggers-why am I being such a lunatic about my stupid nursery?? When I thought I was having a girl-I had the nursery 100% figured out (well-it was figured out in my head). Now that we know Baby B is a boy-I have been soooooo indecisive about the colors, his bedding, ect. I am normally very opinionated/decisive and make good solid decisions without much thought. But for some reason this one small task is KILLING me!! I spent less time choosing a husband that I have choosing this bedding...Definitely less time buying our 1st home than this...I mean, come on-I'm so wishy-washy that I'm annoying myself over this :) I have ordered fabric swatches from all of the usual suspects: Restoration Hardware Baby & Child, Serena & Lily, The Land of Nod, Pottery Barn Kids and Ive ordered and returned bedding from most of those places too :( Uggghhhhhh my issue with most baby boy bedding is that its so "theme-y". Like cars, boats, jungle theme, sports, etc and I hate that! I just want a sweet, cute, bright nursery that is a happy place to be in and that is comfy and safe for our little guy. So finally, some inspiration: A Sign. Literally and figuratively speaking. I found this darling vintage-y custom sign that has the sweet words from "You Are My Sunshine". This will serve as my starting ground to get the ball rolling...I love the aqua and the yellow and Baby B's room will be a vintage-y, beachy, happy cute room :) I think Ive also found the bedding I want(Serena & Lily-and will post on that later), my glider comes Thursday (Pottery Barn Kids Eco Glider in Stone), I need to order my crib and we already received the changing table (both PB kids) and then just order the fun stuff: our stroller and my diaper bag and I'm all set!! Well- almost, I of course need all the other baby stuff and need to actually deliver this baby-but both of those things are way less frightening than finally deciding on my nursery stuff!!
