Random thoughts

It's pretty pathetic, but I never bought Chappell a crib mobile. I couldn't seem to find one that I liked?
Sometimes I'm so picky, I end up going without because I can't/won't make a decision. I have to wait for the perfect __________. {You are supposed to fill in the blank}
My aunt sent a mobile after Chappy was born, but it wasn't really my style. She doesn't read this, so I think (hope) it's OK to say that. In fact, I'm not so sure she knows how to use a computer...
Anyways, the mobile had dancing teddy bears wearing acid-washed denim jeans. Kind of frightening.
I found this adorable cupcake mobile last week on Restoration Hardware's website. I'm in love. It arrived today and looks precious in Chappy's room. Too bad it will only be up for a little while... I'll have to take it down when she starts pulling up on the crib!

I can't tell you how much I love Internet shopping. It's just so easy! I have Chappell's formula and diapers shipped right to our door from Diapers.com. It's great.

New Topic: I'm looking into getting some new throw pillows from Etsy. Which ones should I get? I'm not so sure about the first ones. They'll probably get nixed from the list.

As you can probably tell from the pillows, my intentions are to brighten up the palate in our den/family room. While on the subject, I need to take pictures of our den to send to friend, Jessica Inman. A fellow KD sista-friend, she works for an artist based out of New Orleans named Amanda Talley. Reed and I really like her work and are going to commission two pieces to put above our couch. Check her out! Maybe I should wait on ordering throw pillows until I see what the painting looks like...

Jessica-- please nag me to send you some pictures! Reed asks me to every day. And somehow, I forget.

I like the second and third pillows... but waiting 'til you have the paintings is a good idea! The second, ruffle ones would probably go with anything, though!

I love the ruffle ones, but I like the second to last alot...interestingly Riley has a onsie with a deer head in that fabric and a matching burp cloth...Elizabeth made them, so she can tell you where to find the fabric.

Second or third one is my vote. If you are trying to add color then the 3rd is best. So cute!!
