Obsessions: Nursery, the Color Orange, Bugaboo

My to-do list is far too long to write a coherent blog post, so I'll make this a several-topic, list-form post.

1. I am totally obsessed with my baby's nursery. I hang out in here all the time. It's actually the only place in the house I really hang out. I look up stuff on my laptop and look through my baby binder (has to-do lists, receipts, doctor info, lists of stuff I still need, etc.) Then, I either make a phone call related to the to-do list, or get up and do something, like baby laundry or get a drink of water, or pee, which I seem to be doing a lot. The doctor said the baby is pretty much sitting on my bladder. Well, sitting with his head, because my little angel is already head down. Good job, baby!

Today I am going to put together a little table from IKEA that will go beside my chair in here. Right now, I'm using the Diaper Dekor as my chairside table. It's actually quite good, but once there are stinky diapers in there, I probably won't want to set my coffee on it.


2. I truly am obsessed with the color orange. My wedding flowers were orange and light blue, the baby's room is light blue and my favorite sheets are the orange striped ones, and the concert poster I need to hang on the baby's wall has orange in it. There were orange dots on my wedding cake. And I bought a stuffed animal with orange in it.

3. The rumors I hear about Chris Brown, one of my celeb crushes, assaulting his girlfriend Rihanna, had better not even be the slightest bit true, or he is OFF my list of celebrity crushes.

4. I am obssessed with the bugaboo Cameleon stroller. This stroller is unfortunately $900. Since I can't have it, I am obsessed with it. I view the cost of all items in terms of a bugaboo. Example: "This dinner cost a hundred bucks!?! That's 1/9 of my bugaboo!" Or, "That IKEA chest is $240? That's almost a quarter of my bugaboo." The bugaboo comes in orange, which as you can imagine, only fans the flames of my bugaboo ardor.







See? See the cake? With the orange dots?

The nursery rocks! Will you help me with mine when the time comes? I am so uncreative with decorating....

Fancy Pancakes said...

Of course I will!
You'll want to begin by determining which colors u r attracted to... any ideas so far?
or, I also got sort of obsessed with a certain sheet from dwell, and I knew I wanted my nursery to be able to match the sheet (my friend is gonna get it for me when it hits stores soon).
Basically, just let yourself go totally insane.

I believe you know my feelings on the color Orange.....GO VOLS!! Big Orange Country!! TENNESSEE!!

Ok, enough of this. But...

There was a time when orange was The Forgotten Color. It was laughed at, moved aside, pushed to the rear, made fun of...no more.

Go into any high-end NYC shop, a boutique on Michigan Avenue in Chicago or one of Beverly Hill's Rodeo Drive's offerings...the kinder, gentler shade of orange (UT's) is everywhere. Our daughters love it, and it has nothing to do with their daddy's obsession with it (though I'd like to think so).

Be Bold, Stand Out...Go Orange!
