I've finally decided! (I think)

I have decided on a baby bedding. I'm going with something blue. They were all voted for and something blue only won by 1 vote, but this weekend sort of sealed the deal for me. After 2 days of helping my sister Rachael paint and redecorate her kids playroom, she has inspired me to also do something creative and artsy in my baby's room. We (when I say we, I mean my sister Rachael and I, Todd has already made it clear he thinks were crazy) haven't come up with a for sure plan just yet, but we think the something blue bedding gives us the most options. Rachael's kids playroom should be done in a few days and I will show you pictures so you'll know more what I mean.

The bedding takes 6 weeks to ship, I think they must make it after you order it. So that gives me time to repaint the extra bedroom in the basement so I can move my guest room down there, and then I can start on the nursery. I had this great plan to tell Todd that I shouldn't paint since I'm pregnant, even though my doctors office already said it was okay. Todd wasn't there so he didn't know that, and it seems believable. But now that I have just helped my sister Rachael paint her playroom, I don't think I'm going to get out of painting my own rooms. Especially since my sister is just the sort of person qualified to state whether or not it's safe to paint when your pregnant. So much for that idea. I guess I better get started. Good thing I have lots of sisters, I'm going to need some help, especially on the artsy and creative parts.

Of course I do work tonight, so I should have some down time around 4am to surf the web. I may just do one more quick look to make sure there isn't something out there I missed. But I'm pretty sure I will be going with the something blue. I will post pictures of our progress once we get started. Thanks to everyone who voted on the bedding poll.

I'm already cooking up some good ideas for you to go with the something blue theme. Hurry up and buy it so we can match colors. Do they give you swatches?

You guys are CRAZY! I can't imagine doing all the detailed work you guys torture yourselves with.
I have to say I like the something blue, but only if you arn't planning on using ALL the other stuff that goes with it. It just seemed so busy. Are you just going with the bedding? I'm sure it will be cute. I sure so wish I lived closer to all you guys. No plans to move though.

Hey Lori! I didn't know you had a blog too! LOVE the bedding. You could just do something simple like painting some of those circles on the wall to match. If you buy some craft paint in those same colors, anything you do would be cool. (I still vote having a monkey or two in there, or maybe a bear)
