Sneak-Preview and My Favorite Things

Here's a little sneak preview of the baby room I'll be working hard to create in the next few weeks. The ideas all came from the latest Pottery Barn kids magazine, but the only thing I could afford were the sheets so I'm just building the room off those and copying some of their fabulous ideas. Plus, I didn't want to have to repaint my cute yellow dresser and this is all so girly and cute. The wooden bird silhouettes and white board underneath it all are for a crafty project and the plain white crib ruffle will be renovated. And there will be a couple other crafts, but you'll just have to wait and see. I hope it turns out because, as I've said many times before, I'm NOT very crafty, but luckily I have Amy to help with everything -- she always has the best ideas.
Wish me luck!

This is for JoDee because I know she'll appreciate it. I found these darling maroon patent-leather shoes on clearance at BabiesRUs on Monday and had to get them. Then I got home and realized they perfectly match the little dress she got for my baby last time she was here -- how fortuitous! I am getting VERY excited to dress this little girly!

Another random note about pregnancy. Tonight our ward had an Enrichment called "My Favorite Things." You're supposed to wear your favorite outfit and bring some of your favorite things. I have NO favorite outfits that fit my current body and since I can't go in my underclothes, I just threw on some jeans and a maternity shirt -- not exactly posh, but it at least covered my body.

As for my favorite things, these are currently my favs -- and you can tell that I am pregnant just by these things. Actually, the lotion is fabulous so pick some up next time you're out. It makes your skin super soft and isn't oily and has a nice soft scent I love. My belly loves it too. The others have become daily essentials as of a week ago and probably until a month from now.

I can't begin to explain how delightedly excited I am about your baby room. I'm going to copy it completely when I have a girly!

Ha ha! I can't believe you posted stool softener, that cracks me up. And I'm insanely jealous about your babies room, and dresses and health...okay, just had to throw the last one in for a smile. She is going to be a well dressed newborn!

Hey Mandi-this is Krystal Adams from the ward and book club. I am Heather Gunnell's cousin and I know that you know her. Anyway I just emailed you an invite to view our blog if you want. Hope you are feeling well.

Way cute and clever of you to improvise and be inspired. I ♥ Pottery Barn and I think your room will be just darling.

I want to know how Heather made an actual heart in her comment?!

Mandi,
Thanks for your nice comments on my blog. I have wanted to make a change in Ry's room for a while and was really inspired by the room you did for your girls. I really wanted to make the cute letters for their names like you showed us but I just used her old letters instead. Maybe when I am feeling more creative.

I think it is funny that you are still in denial about your craftiness. I've seriously been considering hiring you to come and help me with my house. I can't wait to see the nursery, I love that yellow dresser! It is the best color.
