A decorating update . . .

So, we went into town tonight to find and buy paint for Jack's room with the hope of getting it painted tomorrow. We decided to hire a babysitter and make a "date" out of it. But, we forgot that it was Sunday and by the time we were done with dinner, the paint stores were all closed. Maybe we'll be heading back into town tomorrow morning.

Instead, we spent some time at Target. I found this receiving blanket and I LOVE IT. I bought it as inspiration, should we have time to re-do the nursery. On the website it's called "blue armadillo" but the packaging calls it "hedgehog." Weird, huh? It's cute and babyish. BUT, the colors and the fact that they're hedgehogs make it modern enough for me.

Oh! And I found the quilt for Jack's room on ebay (it wasn't there a few days ago, but it is now). My guess is that it will go beyond my price range since it's no longer available on the website, but we'll see . . .

That's definitely a hedgehog. I like it, too. Hedgehogs are one of my "things." Matt and I used to have two as pets.

Yep, a hedgehog. I'm in Houston and armadillos are not that cute. And they are usually seen smooshed on the side of the road.
