Tuesday To-Do's

Jan 24, 2012

I've been known to be a list maker...but somehow I end up losing my lists. Every.time. Kinda defeats the purpose, huh? So I'm going to post this week's to-do list so I have it where I can remember it. Hopefully :)

No I have not made a decision on nursery bedding. I have gone back and forth now between four. freaking. bedding. sets. Yes, those are all the links to the sets :) The last one is the most recent shop I found on Etsy. They're more affordable than the second set I'd looked at. Now I'm just waiting to hear back from the seller on if she's able to rush order and a final price quote. Wish me luck!! This might be the end of all this drama! :p

Ronnie is going to put together the dresser for the nursery today! We'd been scouring Craigslist and antique shops for the perfect vintage dresser to also double as a changing table but we just never found one. We did one time but someone beat us to it! :( So we finally decided to just get a seperate changing table and to get a simple dresser from IKEA. I bought some pretty little purple organizers for the inside of it and am kinda excited about it!

I need to buy shower hostess gifts. My shower this weekend is hosted by my mom, three aunts and one cousin. That's a lot of people to buy for but I know they've all done so much to put this together. Now my dilemma is, WHAT DO I GET THEM? They ALL love wine so that was an option but it just feels like the easy way out. I need special gifts but have no idea. All help would be much appreciated!

I found two dresses I LOVE at Destination Maternity for my shower so my to-do for today is to go by the store and see if they have them in stock. If not, I'm about to spend a buttload to have one of them shipped to me by Friday :/ I hate being such a procrastinator! My favorite is the purple one. What do you think?

Finally, my plan is to buy frames this week and then spray paint them on Sunday. I plan to use them on a wall in the nursery, maybe even right above her crib. I want to do them them in purple, pink and lime green. I won't be using nearly this many frames but just so you get the idea ;)



Any advice on any of this stuff would be greatly appreciated!! Tonight I begin checking items off the list!! Happy Tuesday!! :D

P.S. Please go check out Ashlee's 200 Follower Giveaway!! It's cute and includes cupcakes :)

I love that dresser!! I have the same one in dark brown!! It's really great and sturdy too. It also comes with a wall bracket so you don't have to worry about it falling forward, when Baby Girl gets bigger and starts climbing things! :)

Good luck choisng your bedding girl! For shower gifts at my bridal shower(I know it's different but still) I did little giftcags for the hostesses with "shower" goodies likea loofa, shower gel, lotion, etc they loved it! All from Bath & Body works when they had sales :-) Love that picture frame wall idea too so neat!!

amy said...

Ooh, I love the polka dot dress!!! So cute!!!!

Ashlee Miller said...

Love the frame idea! You'll have to blog the final look! Can't wait to see it.

Erin said...

Frame idea is awesome. Another reason why you need an iPhone. You can type your list in there and have it remind you!!

♥ Marcy ♥ said...

OMG the frame idea is too cute! It is going to look adorable! PS I like the first dress of the two... the more colorful floraly one ;)

Mrs. W. said...

I love that frame idea! I love the purple organizers, too - I need to find something like that for us.

For my hostesses, I got my sis and cousin each a pretty necklace and a gift card to a store they like (they were the main planners). My mom and aunt helped out too so I got them each a brag book to put baby pics in (my aunt just became a grandma and has another grandbaby on the way!). I thought about doing Lauren's shower stuff idea, too!

Just keep chipping away at that to-do list! You can do it!

Sarah said...

Love that Etsy bedding!!

Heather said...

I think the Target one is so cute!! And I may steal the frame idea...

Cole said...

That frame idea is awesome!! I know you've tweeted all the bedding options, but I forget... There was an etsy one that was pinks and purples that I really liked!

Oh, and the purple dress is perfect for you!!

Christina said...

All of the bedding is so cute! I still vote for Missoni though. We have the same Ikea dressers in black for our entire family. They do the trick! I love the polka dot dress, but maybe that's just because I wore polka dots to my shower. Haha. Cute frame gallery wall idea! I love the colors you’re going with. Nolan has a light blue room and Milo has a navy blue room. Wow. Original. I totally thought you made your to do list online. Your handwriting looks like font! Pretty!

Jean said...

get a bottle of wine and perhaps an accessory if they like. ;)

Cami said...

I just adore post it notes and yours are super cute :)

Hope you got some marks off your "to do" list!

That's always the greatest feeling!

LoveLove the frames!! Can't wait to see some pics of yours :)

Jules said...

The 3rd bedding set (modern calypso bright) looks really cute, but I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. I love the idea of the spray painted frames. That's going to look so cute!

For the shower gifts, maybe you could do wine with a little extra something like a nice hand cream from Bliss or something. I'm so bad at figuring out gift stuff like that and always wind up going overboard!

You'll get it all done and either dress will be very cute at your shower!

Asha said...

The purple dress is very cute! I love your ideas for the nursery, I can't wait to see how the room turns out! Only a few more weeks until your baby girl is finally here...I'm SO excited for you :)

Meg O. said...

Gosh, all of those bedding sets are so cute!! I wish I were help there.

And that is such a cute idea with the frames for the nursery!

Cori H. said...

I just love all the purple! :) Her nursery is going to be so cute. I love the picture frame idea too. I really like the purple dress. I think it would be perfect for the shower! I'm gonna be in trouble when I have to start making all these decisions about baby things and weddings. I'm so indecisive! haha!
