My Obsessions.....

Soooo... I kinda have a problem looking online at baby stuff all the time! Cribs, clothes, nursery themes, nursery accessories, really anything nursery, cute baby bedding, strollers, all possible baby things.... But the bigger problem is I can't ever decide on anything! Either because I’m naive, or I’m ignorant on the "best product," and sweet features I think I should maybe, possibly have... Or I am too picky and really have no idea what I want to do for Hayden's nursery anyway. I know there is the typical jungle, animals, sports and stuff... but none of it makes me say, "YES! That's it!" Also, whenever I go to Cory for his opinion, he is the typical sweet husband who says, "Whatever you want dear. Whatever you like and will make you happy." Now really I should be saying "Ahhh, that’s so sweet, thanks hunny." But really it frustrates me to no end! I asked his opinion for a reason! Because I have no idea what I want! The only rule I have form him for the nursery or really anything for our little man, is that it absolutely in no way can be any shade of RED! Why you may ask? Because Red=Utes, U of U, "the enemy"..... We are hardcore BYU fans over here folks, true blue all the way to the core BYU fans. We'll my husband is anyway, yay for BYU but it all really makes no difference to me. I only got away with having red as one of my colors for our wedding because it wasn't "Ute red," more of a super dark rich cranberry red and again, he just wanted me to be happy. I really do have a sweet husband..... Anyway, enough of the red stuff.... So, can anyone think of a cute little boy nursery theme or color combo or has seen some cute bedding from somewhere I can decorate a nursery off of? I do really like blues and browns together, but who knows what I'll end up doing. OH, and what features really are necessary for cribs, strollers, high chairs, etc.... ESHHH, so much to choose from, it really is so much fun though picking out cute baby things. Especially clothes, they are sooo cute, and tiny!

We went and looked at the house we are gonna rent yesterday! It's just right for what we need. It's a cute little, older, blue home in Clearfield of 300. The front room has new carpet and the rest of the carpet in the house is in pretty good condition. There is newish paint and is a 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath, front room, living room, etc....everything we could possibly need and ever want for now. I really like the neighborhood, the ward is supposed to be really nice, and friendly and I am so ready to be settled somewhere. The people we are renting it from are sooo nice and chill. They don't care if we paint the bedrooms or anything. I don't know if we(or Cory really since I can't paint right now)will paint any of the bedrooms though. But hopefully one day soon we will re paint the bathroom! It's sooo ugly. So everyone, when you come over, be prepared to see an ugly blue, sea shelled bathroom. We will get the keys next weekend and should be ready to go! I'm so grateful for prayer! This past month has really strengthened mine and Cory's relationship and our testimonies.

Now it's time to get back to my quest of trying to decide on some sort of baby stuff, which will probably turn into just browsing again. All the guys are at the BYU game, I know, shocking right! :) So I will finish the laundry, do some grocery shopping, and venture into Robert's to possibly find something crafty to make for Hayden's room. Hopefully I'll be able to find some cute things to make for his room and our new place so I can stay cost effective and busy through my new desired craftiness. I will probably get myself a treat too of whatever I am craving at the moment. Any ideas from you thrifty, crafty, inspired women on nursery things or any baby accessories, let me know! I'll keep you posted on my nursery and crafting adventure!

I am excited you are having a boy :) Boys are fun! Trust me I would know! It is hard trying to figure out what kind of nursery to do? I just did the sports stuff, cause my husband is a football freak! But I should have done a car room, because my son is obsessed with cars! Both my son's share a room now, and it is kind of a car sports room.....? Oh well! The best brand for car seats, strollers, and high chairs that I have found is Graco! Hope that helps!

I have a boy on the way too. He's due in December and I keep flip flopping on the whole nursery idea thing.
My first idea was "teddy bear picnic" and I was going to put up shelves and use old wicker picnic baskets to store things in, with lots of old fashioned teddy bears.

I still like the idea but I am hand sewing all of my baby bedding and stuff and just can't decide on a fabric to match.
Then I found a fabric that went against the teddy bear picnic theme completely so I just don't know anymore...
I'm so right there with you and just have no idea!

Make sure you get a stroller with good cup holders! Check Consumer Reports for carseats, etc.
