Biker Baby

So I had the baby's room all picked out in my head. It was going to be sailor themed with blue white and brown/tan and it was going to be soft and nice and blah blah. Then husband came along and happened to like everything that was the opposite of what I liked.


We walked around buy buy baby and everything I liked he didn't and everything he liked I didn't. It was a disaster.

So after thinking a lot on the subject, I think I've come up with a happy compromise that we will get along with. This collage is just some inspiration so it's not quite what I'm going for but it gives you a main idea.

Vintage motorcycle baby.

I'm probably going to do blue and white walls with brown and orange accents in the form of art, curtains, bedding, etc.

But I'm starting to love the vintage motorcycle theme. I'm probably going to get a few prints like the Keep Calm and Ride On one {soooo cute} and the pop art looking one, and then accent it with goggles, helmets, little motorcycle stuff, etc. I don't need a lot, just a few things. The hardest part will be finding a bedding that I like. The one in this picture is good with the color scheme but the pattern is a little too intense for my style.

As for furniture, we've talked and we are probably going to end up buying a new crib and dresser set. We plan on having more children so we may as well will start new and then pass it down to the next baby that comes along in a few years. What do you think?

short and sweet

I know I already mentioned this but... I LOVE CHRISTMAS. i have pine scented candles burning almost constantly while i listen to Christmas music on pandora. ahhh pandora.
I still need to work on my christmas shopping. funny how i had all this money and did all this shopping on black friday yet, i only bought a few gifts and the rest was decorations and lights for my house. Hopefully after today's trip to the mall (yikes- we are braving all the crazies out there) I will feel a little more satisfied with my progress on that long list.

baby is doing great. he kicks me all day and i love the reassurance that he's happy and feeling fine. i'll be 26 weeks on monday.
i've been thinking about staying at home when i have the baby versus working. I'd really appreciate all of your input on this because it's nice to have different points of view on this. I think i've mostly made my decision but I'd still like to hear what you think.
