I've been busy....

I have been googling like a mad-woman. I got a little carried away with my Amy Butler gray and mustard martini dot fabric crush.......

Apparently, gray and yellow is all the rage right now...so, let me show what I fell in love with online:

Reminder of the inspiration fabric for the room:

Two adorable Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bags: still feminine enough to feel cute lugging it around all day, but neutral enough for a boy or a girl.
Adorable gray and yellow artwork! I love it!


Look at the cute alphabet art! So CUTE! And of course the lanterns are adorable as well!
Cute chair! Cute room, a little too elegant/girly, but you get the idea with the color schemes....

Ok, love the bedskirt on the crib. Check out the cute birds on the ceiling! So chic!
Love this bedding all around.....


More cute fabric, who doesn't love houndstooth?

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this room! I love the colors of the walls and the chunky gray and white stripes! So cute, clean, and chic!


Another fabulous Amy Butler fabric, Gray Wallflower. We've made nursing covers out of this for moms of baby boys. The mom has the right to have some girly-ness while breastfeeding! :) This is the perfect pattern for it, feminine but not princessy pink.
So, this is some random couples save the date card, but wouldn't it be cute as a birth announcement! If I were to stay with the whole gray and yellow kick.....

Ok, these last couple are just for fun. Imagine how cute I would look sitting in my baby's grey and yellow room wearing this darling duo! I will still coordinate perfectly if I went out with my PPB diaper bag, and nursed in public with my AB wallflower booby blanket!

And this.....just look at! Need I say more. :)

I am loving the gray and yellow.
Stay tuned next week, I may have changed my mind.
"Happy Weekend" everyone!

I was wrong......

.....and so were the rest you.

Well, looks like I'll be suing the chinese lunar calendar for giving me false information. :)

Kidding, we did, however, find out today that baby #2 is a little boy! Much to everyone's surprise, I am totally OK about this and am actually quite excited. David and I have always wanted 2 boys and 1 girl. So, when the time comes for trying for a 3rd, get serious and PRAY. :)

Ok, all jokes aside. I am literally starting at square one for any sort of mental thoughts of boy room decor. I still want to go with white furniture as Liam will be taking his black furniture with him into his new room.

I have been googling nurseries all day and haven't been very successful or seen anything I love. However, I am still in love with the IKEA pendant lamp that you all think looks like fake fingernails and I know I want to go modern-chic (nothing baby-ish).
So far, I am currently liking another Amy Butler fabric:
I think it would be so cute with slate/gray walls or even the mustard color. Even cuter with the white furniture! Anywho, that's what I am thinking at this moment, I am sure it will change tomorrow.

But, I will leave you with this fun video of my sweet baby boy (we're keeping his name a secret til he's born---that way we can dodge the name critics) who currently looks like a fossil-skeleton creature, but still darn cute. :)

Ruffle Re-Fashion Fury #2

I was finally feeling crafty....again and late at night as usual. It ended up in quite the refashion!

I had this blah brown-turtle neck-baby doll top, that didn't really fit right, had long sleeves and was just plain frumpy. Well....I saw beyond the brown mass and envisioned something cuter!

Because I always forget to take before pics, here's one I stole from online. It's not brown and not very frumpy, but you get the idea:
So, using the same technique that I learned from the last ruffle refashion post (the gray tank top), I hacked off the sleeves, cut out the awful turtleneck, turned the sleeves into one big long ruffle and simply sewed the ruffle onto the new neckline!

Since the fabric is like a cotton t-shirt fabric, you can have raw edges that won't unravel! So basicly you just cut and do some very minor sewing! I love the new frilly elegant sleeveless look of it! And since it's empire waist, it's perfect for maternity wear! :)

Be inspired and go cut something up, and turn it into ruffles!

5 months: showing and GLOWING...literally....

Well, five months are here. Next week, 11/19, we find out the gender! Remember to be thinking pink. :)

I can't believe how fast this pregnancy seems to be going! It appears to be zooming by.
As you can see in this pic, I am definitely showing and my hair is glowing. Good times.


I did it!

Well, I went for it! Thanks for all the positive votes pushing me along. :)

I must say, I feel a little like a light bulb or malibu Barbie minus the smokin' bod, but I think I like it! It's funky, punky fresh and new. I am convinced that this baby will be a blondie after I've chemically challenged my hair.

But, blondes do have more fun!

Feeling "blah"....looking for "Wah lah!"

I know it's been forever since my last post, but today I come to you with a big issue. Desperate need for advice....

....my hair.

I am so bored with my hair. Don't get me wrong, I have found a great stylist and have loved the style, but I am bored with my color and want to go shorter. Much shorter and much, much BLONDER.

So, to best describe to you what I am thinking, I chose Paris. Paris Hilton herself to most appropriately display the new do that I am craving.
I LOVE the color. LOVE the bangs.Yes she is trashy and sultry and has an awful reputation, but the girl has cute hair. For that, I like her.I mean seriously! Adorable!!!?

What do you think? Yay or Nay?
