No way you're getting pink bedding!

So, last weekend my parents came in for a visit - my Dad for a short one day and my Mom for several days so that she could go to the ultrasound appointment. On Sunday, after my Dad had headed home, Mom and I went out shopping for baby bedding.

I should say that I had previously picked out a set but had only seen it online. While we were out crib shopping on Saturday I got to actually see it in person and boy was I glad. If I had actually gotten that one I would have been so dissatisfied. We got a dark wood crib and we have decided to paint the walls a neutral khaki color and this bedding would have been so dull in the room. The colors were not as vivid as I had imagined and it just wasn't "right". Here's a picture:

After looking at it in the store for a good long time, I decided that it wasn't going to work. Cute as it was, it just wasn't what I was after. I decided I wanted something more vibrant.

So Mom and I went to Babies R Us and looked around. We added tons of stuff to my baby registry and then went and looked at the bedding. One immediately stood out to me because of it's bold colors and striking patterns. I knew it was what I wanted. Here is a picture:

It's going to be absolutely striking in our nursery with the dark wood crib and neutral walls. I cannot wait to get it all set up! Oh...and when Shooter looked at the picture online he thought the block in the bottom right corner was pink, hence the comment about his son not having pink bedding. After zooming in I showed him that it was a red and white check pattern that just looked pink in the photo. He was noticeably relieved. ;-)

I actually have a timeline for me and dear old Shooter. Our goal is to have the room finally cleared out, painted, carpets cleaned and the crib assembled and furniture in the nursery by the end of March. It's a pretty lofty goal, but I think we can achieve it if we really push ourselves. I'm feeling great these days so I think we'll make it. :-)

Hey there! Thanks for visiting my blog. :-)

I LOVE the bedding, it's so bright and cheery and cute! I haven't even been able to look at bedding yet. We find out the baby's gender in less than two weeks (I'll be 18 weeks then) so I think I've been subconciously holding off on looking till then.

But now that I've seen these, I'm getting the itch to start looking online! LOL
