Pepto pink??

Ok, I have to admit it...I'm not a girly girl. Shocked, aren't you?!? When we found out we were having a girl, we kinda had to re think our idea for her room. We had plan to do a zoo animal/safari theme, but the things we had bought were very much boyish. So we went back to the drawing board...Then we went to Walmart and the girl things were WAYYYYYYYYY pink. SO much pink that it made me sick to my stomach like Pepto does. Maybe its the color. Maybe it's the association. Either way, I was like NO WAY am I going to have a room full of pepto. So then we thought we'll just go with Winnie the Pooh, which is what we chose for Braydon. We still have all of the stuff for the crib and the room. it was decided. But then we went to Babies R Us yesterday afternoon and looked around. Wow, that was an experience. =)

There was this one group of people in the infant care section. By group, I mean atleast 15 people that were obviously there together. Looking & talking rather loudly about maternity belts and how important they are for whoever the pregnant one out of the bunch was. I mean come on. How many people does it take to register in a store. You, your husband, your parents, and siblings, and grandparents, oh, and can't forget Aunt (fill in the blank) or cousin whoever...I mean they literally were clogging up the aisles, Kenney & I couldn't even get to one another. And they left the cart out in the middle & saw that people were trying to get through with their carts, but they just left it. ugh. I'm all about family and stuff, but if you take this many people with you to register, how many people will be in the delivery room? Or worse, how many people did it take to conceive?!?!?

Ok, well, back to the whole room decor thing...We looked around and everything we liked was way to boyish. And the few girly ones that we deemed decent were WAY too expensive. So finally, we decided on just going with neutral colors. We picked a lavendar colored crib bumper, with a sage dust ruffle & sheet and a multi-colored blanket. Then we found a mobile & a lampshade we liked so here is our not-so-pepto girly decor...

When Tom and I were trying to pick out something for our nursery, we had the same problem. I'm NOT a pink kind of girl, and everything for girls seemed too ruffly or pink. So...we picked out the exact same thing you did! :) Except our dust ruffle thing is lavendar, just like the bumper. Hehe. I especially love the lightswitch cover. :)
