Land of Nod

I have some favorites from the new Land of Nod catalog that I am going to post on here instead of actually spending money on it. Its like fantasy football, but with adorable kids stuff....or something like that.

OK how sweet is this girly pink bedding? Something I never would have liked before having a baby girl. I really only like pink if its done right, and this is done right! I don't think I would go all out with the curtains matching, but just the bedding would do.

This growth chart is too cute, but its like 50 bucks or something.

I would love to get a teepee for Carys and have it in the corner of our main living area, since we have the room. I think its kid-friendly, but doesn't scream it with a disney or nickelodeon character on it. No offense Dora, I got much love for ya! I'm not sure about the red stripe though, I think it would be cooler if it was just plain canvas.

OK, I am kind of obsessed with these striped pajamas, just a little...

"Go mommy!"

Video - "no mommy!"
Originally uploaded by kwunischelove

So Carys loves to stand on a stool up to the sink and play with the water, pretending to brush her teeth. Needless to say, she is none too happy when I try to pull her away. So she tells me to "go mommy!"

Make a Statement

I watched the "Jason & Molly Bachelor wedding extravaganza" on ABC because I am pretty much obsessed with weddings. Although it was funny that the host claimed it was "one of the most highly anticipated weddings ever", riiiight. It was pretty ridiculous, but they got everything for free and it was deluxe!
Long story short, the bridesmaids had these big chunky necklaces that caught my eye, so I looked them up. They are actually sold on Etsy at AddieMia's shop.

I really like it, but I'm not so sure its totally me. Then I came across this other necklace that I think I want to get. I've never been a big jewelry person but I feel the tide, it is a changin'!

Say hello to my little friend

Or should I say our new big friend. Nathan's dad let us have this African fellow to mount on our wall, actually it's not real, but the horns are. I am told it is called a gemsbach (or something like that), but I have yet to find evidence online that such an animal really exists! Anyway, we love him, he doesn't have a name yet though...Carys just calls him "cow!"

And here she is wearing her favorite kitty shirt, playing in the backyard

More Progress

I had my eye on these letters from Land of Nod forever, and finally got them up on her wall. I love how it turned out. Hopefully you can tell what color her wall is from the pic, its a really nice light purple.

Here is Carys hanging out with her dog friends from next door. It's like we have our own private zoo right outside our door. Doggies!

A shot of the brand new shower in the master bath, it looks absolutely fabulous!

Got the Thomas Paul plates on the kitchen wall. Thank God for my husband and those electronic level thingys.

Here is a funny shot of Carys, I walked in our bedroom to find her standing in my shoes watching tv. Too cute. More work to be done on the bedroom though...

Carys in front of her crib. The lighting is not great, but I am working on that.

More to come soon!
