Speaking of the nursery...here's what I have so far. I've narrowed down my 'crib contenders' to two:
the ever-classic 'Jenny Lind'
I have decided on a paint color (woohoo!) And the winner is...Valspar's 'Brushed Rose.' This color is exactly what I have been looking for! You may remember the color dilemma I was having a while ago - I just couldn't decide between a calm, neutral nursery, or a bright, happy space. I decided to go with a bright space, because I love the idea of mixing and matching textures and colors, and felt that a neutral nursery would leave me pulling my hair out wondering, 'Can this go in here? But it's not white? Well, what should I do with it then?'. I was determined to find a coraly-pink for the walls, but was having trouble finding the perfect shade until this...
I discovered this gorgy color by accident, really...I was searching for office inspiration, and came across Lauren Conrad's new office. She (along with a few other celebs) is teaming up with Valspar to benefit Habitat for Humanity - you can see the color on her walls here (so exciting):
As you know, I have ordered my glider, and Babies R Us has been generous enough to hold it until we move (thank goodness - one less thing to worry about). SO, I still have
a few many items to purchase, but I am not worried about it. You're looking at the world's best procrastinator... but, I always get the job done ;).
How far along? 31 Weeks
Total weight gain: up 12 lbs
Maternity clothes? yes & no .... still mixing and matching, and wearing maxi dresses almost daily

Best moment this week: watching & feeling the amazing movement of this babe...I think she's doing Zumba in there ;) Also, hearing from my doctor about my glucose test - in the clear!
Miss Anything? Being able to wear certain outfits...it's definitely getting more difficult to assemble looks that feel 'new' and exciting
Movement: lots of movement day & night
Food cravings: more aversions (still) than cravings, it's hard for me to find things that sound good...but cravings include: fruit, italian ice, water (so thirsty all the time), or anything COLD
Anything making you queasy or sick: still meat...wondering if I will ever like meat again?

Looking forward to: designing the nursery & ordering all the essentials I have left to purchase!
Have a fab Tuesday!
