It's really hard to get excited about Fall when you live in South Florida but I want it so bad I can taste it... At least 80 degrees would be great.
Here are a few things about Fall that I love.

And all my cute cooler maternity outfits that are just hanging in my closet.

A girl after my own heart...

So we found out about 2 weeks ago that we were having a little girl! I can't be any happier, for many reasons, but mainly because this whole time I was thinking it was a girl and to find out it was makes me think that I really do have motherly instincts. My first conformation that I might be okay at my new job. But the most important is that she looks VERY healthly.
So that brings on so many decisions...
As far as I can remember I've thought about the day I would find out I was pregnant and the day that I became a mom and all the details in the middle, like names and the nursery. I can't describe how much I love this little girl already! And I know this is just the beginning.
But in the last week I've really started thinking about the nursery. I thought I knew what I wanted which was this...

But then I thought about it and what if this is my only girl, would I regret not sharing with her my love for Pink and Green. I knew I didn't want to do anything in pastels but looked on every website for bright pink and was left wondering what I was going to do...until Saturday, when my girlfriend and I went into the Snappy Turtle's Harvey's Store in Delray Beach and I saw this bib and loved the pattern...

After a couple of attempts to find the artist that had made the bib...I had success. She proceeds to tell me that it is a Lily pattern, I think to myself, of course it is, I would pick it out of a haystack. She has found the fabric and is working with someone to make me a bumper and bed skirt. I just love it! It is exactly what I was looking for, so I really hope that it all works out and as soon as I get permission to put her website on my blog to share I will because she has some really cute stuff. I can't wait to share with you my newest project.

(By the way, does anyone know the name of this pattern?)

Stolling right along...

I know it's been awhile and I have to say that I really do miss it! I still read and keep up with everyone but I have had so much running though my head, couldn't pick just one topic to blog about... so I did none...lame huh! But I need some advice.
I went with my mom to the mega baby store Baby Love in Ft. Lauderdale, I was told they were the baby experts and had great advice. I went into the store thinking that I would just get a carrier/infant carseat, use a snap -n -go for the first couple months then go to an umbrella stroller such as this Maclaran.

Boy was I wrong, the salesman convinced me otherwise. The Maclaren's all have two handles, making it hard to maneuver, no place for my drink or a baby's drink and little storage. I was totally againest a travel system but now I'm in travel system love. You think you know what you would do, until you have to do it.

So this is the bad boy I chose...

I didn't get it yet, I needed to make sure that I was making the right decision, so I have spend the morning going over reviews and found it to be very well liked.
So this where you come in, does anyone have any experience with Chicco? Or any suggestions regarding strollers?
