Mommy Blogs

Over the past few weeks I've been finding more new and exciting mommy blogs to follow and read, and now cannot wait until this little nugget growing inside me is here, so I can officially join the mommy blog world.  There really is a whole world out there of awesome deals, great and helpful information, been there - done that moments, giveaways, special buttons, and so many other fun things that mom's across the world are sharing with other moms and moms-to-be like me. A couple of our friends are apart of this mommy blog movement, if you can call it a movement, and it's been fun to watch their blogs grow. 

One of those friends is Amy from A Good Life. The reason i'm mentioning this is because she is having her first official product giveaway this week! This is a big step for a blogger, when companies ask you to endorse their products on your blog, it's huge. So, to help her out, and gain another vote in her giveaway, I thought i'd mention it here today, and post a link for you to head over and check it out. She's giving away a pillow pet, yes it's one of those cuddly cute stuffed animals that folds out into a pillow. I think it would be cute to have one to add to the nursery for the baby to be, were going for a puppy or a frog, I really wish they had a duck, but the frog would match the duck, or wetlands, theme were going for. So go check her out, and see if you can win a pillow pet of your own @ http://www.agoodlifeblog.com/2010/10/giveaway-its-pillow-its-pet-its-pillow.html

Also, speaking of frogs and ducks and wetlands, I think we've decided on a "theme" for the nursery. Well, almost. I love this bedding http://www.rosenberryrooms.com/437-wetlands-organic-blanket.html, and from the beginning of this pregnancy, when asking Brent what he would like in the babies room, he responds, ducks. Or deer, but I liked ducks more. I was trying to find a way to suffice his want for ducks, he was thinking Mallards and Hens in flight across the walls, lol, like the ones he hunts. Yea, not happening quite like that. So, after some searching, I found this bedding and absolutely love it! It also goes with the "green" theme were wanting, all organic bedding and toys. Now all we have to do is actually get the nursery put together. It's getting there, the office is almost fully cleaned out, shelves are about to come down, and the bulky desk that takes up 40% of the room will be disassembled and donated. Then all that is left is to paint, put together the crib, and refinish the curled wood rocker. Woo hoo for nursery progress!!

Cute stuff! You should definitely check out the Fawn and Forest site if you are looking for a natural theme (or just want to get lost for a couple of hours). So many cute ideas out there, even more so than when we were setting up our boy's rooms.
